It is difficult for me to agree with the negative reviews posted here by some Italian customers. We have traveled Italy extensively and found this hotel to be excellent for the following reasons:
- Staff is very friendly and accommodating
- Hotel is superbly clean - both rooms and common areas
- Rooms are great size and showers/bathrooms are large for Europe in general
- Excellent value at around €90 a night, which is superb considering August (vacation time) and location (hello? it is Amalfi!)
- Building is very well maintained. I stayed in many hotels over this trip and this is the best maintained building I have stayed in; everything from doors, to walls, to windows, to outlets, to faucets - very well maintained. Owners, please keep up the maintenance!
- Views from the common terrace are outstanding
If you drive, the parking along the road near the hotel is free. It is somewhat hard to get to the water, but there is bus you can take anywhere. Overall, excellent value!
