I wanted to explore the Amalfi coast on a budget. The Fontana gave me the perfect homebase to that. Really, everything you need is right there. The room was everything I required plus a view of both sea and the square. Breakfast was provided and the SITA bus stop was literally steps from the building. GO! Don't question it. Life IS too short.


In the smaller square off to the left there is a snack bar turned restaurant called L'Abside. Go! The mother/daughter team that do the cooking make everything fresh to order and their prices are very reasonable. On the plus side they also speak very good English. Splurge at least once on dessert...its heavenly. Otherwise just learn the phrase "vino rosso dell casa" and try the local favorites.

certainly not a three star

Would not recommend Fri, Oct 22, 2010
Stayed for 6 nights (October 2010) at the Fontana. Certainly not a three star hotel, even the local Amalfi Tourist Authority gives it a two star. The hotel staff was horrible and could care less if you had a nice stay or not. The bed squeaked, only warm water in the bathroom, the TV had no English speaking channels (no CNN or BBC). The breakfast was all sweet pies or pastry, which might be good for a couple of days but not certainly 6 days. No coffee or tea service in the room. NO INTERNET (for guest use) in the room or hotel. There was an Internet cafe in town but it is quite expensive. The hotel has a good location, but so don't many other hotels in Amalfi. With the hotel loction being on the main square you will be awaken at 0600 by truck and car noise.

I loved staying at Hotel Fontana! Perfect location for exploring the town. Right on the main square. Beautiful view! Large rooms with tall windows. Staff were very professional and helpful. Hiked up to Ravello. Was a very challenging hike, but fun! Great adventure! Ravello is beautiful too!
