Hotel Fontana3.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
We had a family room, so plenty of space. AC was working properly so it was a good nite's sleep during hot season. five meters to central square and nice views to the marina from the windows. Friendly staff, and parking service is good too!
This Hotel was a perfect location for us as we were attending a wedding in the Amalfi cathedral. Not a modern hotel but still had lots of charm. Staff all very helpful and very knowledgeable. Self-serving continental breakfast was included when we booked. With fresh coffee. Our room had a sea view. Boat trips and buses to many destinations two minutes from hotel. Right in the centre of all the action. Would use the Hotel Fontana again.
The location is amazing. On the same main street as the beach and where all boat trips depart from. Walk out the door and you are surrounded by shops, restaurants. Stayed 2 nights. Found lady on front reception was nice. The restaurant staff at breakfast not so nice. Overall loved Amalfi and location perfect.
Checked in and went to our room to drop off our cases. Found loads of long black hairs on the floor and a pair of dirty slippers. Thought I should check the bed and sure enough black hairs on the sheets. They couldn't even change the sheets between guests! Yuk ! Told the reception staff and they came and changed the sheets and swept the floor. From then on we had bad service and evil glares. Don't bother with this place. You'll get no sleep during summer from the drunk Brits Abroad who drink and sing all night in the square below and from the uncomfortable 200 year old bed mattress and the church bells which are right in front of you. I recommend staying just outside the town and coming in for lunch and dinner etc... You have to pay for wi-Fi which isn't cool these days.
There's always something happening , weddings , fireworks, theatrical performances. A great location , staff friendly and helpful breakfast was pretty good , loved the fact that they made you an exceptional cappuccino,!,
A superbly situated hotel overlooking on one side the busy ferry terminal and coast road,then at the other side,views over the Piazza Duomo. Amalfi is constantly busy,but the tall shuttered windows meant that we could choose to escape the bustle.Thanks to Luana and her team for their friendliness and hospitality.( not forgetting the Italian lessons ! )
This hotel is in the perfect location. It is an old hotel but very clean and the staff are really nice. We stayed on the 2nd level and had a wonderful view (I asked for the view). A couple of things I should mention. The hotel is right on the road/at the Duoma square and it is very noisy with vespas and cars driving by and Italians singing and talking loud ( the lady at reception did originally have a room for us facing the square , but I asked for a room with a sea view and got it, so I didnt want to complain. It may be noisy wherever your room is located. The hotel is located a little to the left of the Duoma square across from the statue fountain as you come off the ferry. There are alot of stairs to the reception if you have heavy luggage. Its up to you. Its absolutely centrally located but if you dont mind the noise, or walking up the stairs, then go for it.
We enjoyed our stay - after the hairy drive around the coast, it was nice to arrive to such a great spot with a view from our balcony of the amalfi bay. It sits between the bay and the main square and you do have to get up some steps to get to reception, though the lift does go through the restaurant below if you have big bags. Yes we got a bit of noise from the outside first night however we closed our shutters the second night and this was better. Our room was quite spacious, with a double and two single beds. The staff were good - reception is always manned, and they organised a early breakfast for us. Good variety here, and it was great to have an actual coffee machine made by the staff rather than the automatic type
We had a sea view room over the roundabout. Formica wardrobe, tired looking room (although large), old tiny fridge, no tea/coffee in room, firm bed and a hairdryer which kept overheating and cutting out after 1 minute. The hotel breakfast is a very basic continental and is not replenished, so if you arrive 1 hour before breakfast finishes, don't expect very much choice. Wifi is 5 euros a day...really !! Several steep steps just to get to reception is a struggle with large luggage. Lift says to Bar (down), but if you try to take it up, you will get told off by the bar owner below that it is no entry to the hotel. For £80 it was ok. Convenient for ferry (5 min walk) and restaurants. The air con worked and the shutters kept out the noise until around 6am, but then Amalfi is isolated so businesses have to get their produce in when they can. Staff were a bit hit & miss, either very smiley (coffee ladies) or a bit abrupt (reception). It could be so much better.
The hotel was very comfortable and our balcony overlooked the central plaza. We had full view of all the charm that is Amalfi. The staff was friendly and most helpful and breakfast every morning was delicious.
