Reviewed 20 July 2011

If you are looking for a hotel in Amalfi - this is it! Not only is the hotel is in the perfect location but it is clean and the staff is friendly and willing to help.
We got off the bus and simply looked across the street to find our hotel. Not only is it across the street from the bus and the port, but the beach is there too and it is around the corner from the center of town. We were able to spend the day at the beach across the street or sightsee in Amalfi and Postiano as well as Ravello, since Amalfi is right in between.
The breakfast served in the morning on the patio overlooking the water. Cereal and fruit is served as well as traditional meats, cheeses and bread. Most importantly - the coffee is good!
As for the rooms, they are CLEAN and the bathrooms are updated and spacious.
Overall, this was our favorite part of our Amalfi coast trip. I'd highly recommend staying here.

Room Tip: get a balcony - you'll be happy you did.

This is the only place to stay in Amalfi - right in the heart of things, with the sea in front of you. Not all rooms have sea view, but insist on it, and pay the extra. Lovely terrace for breakfast - staff extremely friendly and helpful. Just pull up outside if you are driving, and they will park the car for you, and they just bring it back when you are ready to leave. Good windows meant no problems with noise, but balcony allows perfect view of all the activity on the front. Boats to Capri, Isschia, Positano leave from quay 5 mins walk away. Square with church literally right behind hotel, 1 minute walk.

Arrived by ferry from Salerno. Could see our hotel as we arrived. Just a short stroll from the pier. Reception was very welcoming and shown to our room which had a balcony overlooking the sea. Nicely decoratedwith good size bathroom.Went to sleep and awakened to the sound of the waves. The best asset is the location of this hotel. It really is ideally situated close to the main square and sightseeing bus leaves from accross the street. On occasion it can be a little noisy but never found it a problem . Would really recommend this hotel and will for sure return to Amalfi and wouldn't consider staying anywhere else.

The location of this hotel is both a blessing (in the middle of Amalfi) and a curse (no parking, very noisy). It is a **** hotel, and rates are steep, around € 220 a night. Plus € 20 for (valet) parking.

The rooms are not very spacious, the bathroom are downright small: a bit weird to put in a jacuzzi that occupies 3/4 of the tiny bathroom. With no shower curtain, so a water ballet is ensured.

Beach is just steps away, but it is a 'dirty sand' beach, small and pretty crowded. The pier with ferries to Positano and Capri is just across the street too.

Breakfast is very basic, but on a nice terrace overlooking the sea. And disturbed by the noisy traffic (esp. motorbikes).

There is free WiFi in all rooms, but with the thick walls, connection is dodgy at best.

Hotel is beautiful, historic on the outside and inside!

Not all staff is comfortable speaking English.

The staff was wonderful and very helpful. The hotel was so close and in a great location. The only downside to the sea view is that it's also a street view at the main intersection in town. Lots of scooters. Ask for a room away from the street for a much better stay.

Room Tip: Skip the sea view since it's so noisy
