Hotel Fontana

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Perfect for a couple of night stay to explore amalfi and the surrounding area. Good size room with a great view of the square and we were lucky to have a side balcony with a sea view also. Friendly and helpful staff, comfy bed and a good breakfast! Would return here.

This quaint little hotel is in the perfect position for an Amalfi stay. The front faces the beautiful Ocean, and the back the Piazza Duomo with the stunning imposing St Andrea Church in the background. On arriving, we realised we had to take our heavy bags up some very steep stairs to the front door. Luckily there was a lovely man eating gelato on the steps that offered to help. The hotel reminds me of my Nonna’s house, tiled floors, old school furniture and mismatching paintings all over the place. But it feels authentic. The room we stayed in was quite large with a double and two single beds and an amazing view out to the beach. You could never get sick of that view. Unfortunately the staff weren’t a very cheerful bunch. The only one that had a smile on her face was a woman working behind the front desk with a two week baby in her arms, obviously part of the family. She was very friendly and chatty. The rest of staff seemed like they would rather be somewhere else (perhaps the beach??) Anyway, this didn’t detract from the stunning location. This hotel is very well priced and in the perfect position to walk across the road to all the beach clubs. If you’re wanting something more glam, The stunning Hotel Residence next door matches for location, but at double the price. You don’t spend much time in your room other than sleeping, so this place was perfect. I would definitely recommend it, but it would be nice if the staff were more hospitable. Ps- be prepared for some impromptu fireworks at midnight for no apparent reason 🇮🇹🎉🏖

Hotel located in town square with lot of noise. Good size rooms with basic amenities.Poor housekeeping. You need to climb steep steps to go to the lobby not fit for seniors or people with disabilities. No porter service need to carry luggage on steep steps.Indifferent attitude of staff. Serves basic breakfast. Avoid stay in this budget hotel.

Arriving after the stunning journey by bus from Sorrento this hotel is less than a stones throw from the terminus. We were checked in by a friendly member of staff and shown to our first floor room with a view of the Duomo. The room was large,clean and very tired. Unfortunately we were woken fairly early on the Sunday morning by the noise of the rubbish collection, which seemed to be mostly glass, that said we did sleep well. The en-suite was fine and breakfast good. Although this hotel is dated it provides fantastic value and a great location for staying in the heart of Amalfi town.

Great budget option in central location. Rooms are a little tired but still clean and comfortable - ideal if you plan to be out and about a lot and just need somewhere to sleep. Wifi is available for a charge. Breakfast was a great inclusion.

After reading some questionable reviews, I was concerned about staying here - needlessly. Our son had unexpectedly joined us (5 nights). They put an extra bed in our room and had it made up within 20 minutes and organised parking for his car., €20 a day for the car, €20 a day for him. Staff were knowledgeable and helpful regarding day excursions. We visited Naples, Pompeii, Salerno, Caserta, Positano, Sorrento, Capri, Ravello and took numerous walks up the Amalfi valley - very beautiful. Our room was quiet, clean with a balcony overlooking the sea. Breakfast was adequate, coffee was excellent, with refills offered. Good value for a 3 star hotel. We stayed 16 nights.

This hotel was very outdated and had very small, claustrophobic rooms. The bathroom was hideous ... very poor lighting and an unbelievably small shower. This was poor, even for European standards. Our room was SO NOISY - overlooked a large square that had constant noise and activity all day and night! We had no balcony. I would strongly recommend looking at other options before choosing this one!

This hotell is quite ancient but its fine limited facilities ie no lounges or swimming pool The dining roo. For breakfast is also reception and you half to walk up up one floor level to reach reception.but most rooms have balconies with a view over the main square a d up i to the mountains some have sea views but the bed was comfortable and the aircon worked breakfast was typical continental but acceptable

After reading the reviews I was rethinking our booking, we arrived at the hotel and we were shown to our room. We booked the balcony suite, it was clean, tidy and plenty of room, the shower was small but water pressure was great. The location is fantastic and central to everything Amalfi has to offer. The staff were very friendly and helpful. We overlooked the ocean from our balcony and enjoyed watching the action below. It is a little outdated but it is Italy and you should accept that, we were not disappointed. During our stay in Italy small rooms and outdated decor is the Norm, but simply love Italy.

Whilst this hotel has outdated decor & can be noisy, it is perfectly located within short walking distance of the bus & ferry station, shops, beach, resteruants & attractions. The bed is quite hard with thin bed coverings & thin pillows & the shower is super tiny. The outdated decor makes the room & reception appear shabby & not so clean but in actual fact it is clean & tidy. The hotel staff are friendly & it is clearly a family run hotel which gives a nice atmosphere. Because of the location within the main piazza it can be noisy from the activity below, including the church bells/town clock which chim frequently. Breakfast is ok. There are a number of steep stairs to ascend/descend to enter the hotel which if you're carrying heavy luggage can be challenging but there's a small lift once inside the hotel. The daily bus & ferry timetables are displayed in the hotel reception. There is £5-10 charge for wifi. The air conditioning works well. Good hotel to stay at if you want to be less than a 5 minute walk of everything & don't need a super comfortable nights sleep or a sleep in.
