A beautifully located 4 star hotel on the Amalfi Coast. All rooms has a sea view. Rooms are very comfortable and very courteous stats. Excellent near by restaurants in the city centre which is a walking distance from the hotel. Easy access to boats to visit near by Sorento and the beautiful Island of Capri
Second time we had stayed here,last time 23 years ago. The place has been updated and extended but still has great charm. Ocean views from the room 180 degs, seeing all the way to Sicily & Mt Etna. As the rooms are right on the edge of the road can be a bit noisy at times. (people love to beep horns). Rooms are typically European so don't expect a massive room. The bed was 2 singles pushed together and had a bit of a bump between so not the most comfortable I've been in. Unfortunately no hot water for a shower after a long trip to get here. Breakfast was good without being great. Staff were all very friendly and helpful. There is a pool across the road and another restaurant. A central courtyard is very pretty. Overall very good but a few minor issues
We had a great time staying here! Yes the rooms show a little wear, but that shouldn't be what you're there for! There was some confusion about what Hotels.com said our room would have (a patio) vs what it actually had (just ocean window), but the hotel staff sure made up for it on our 2nd night! We went from 0 patios to 2 patios for free! We'd been planning to go to the beach that afternoon but decided to hang out in the room and enjoy the beautiful views. The pool was great, and you can jump right into the sea from their ladder or diving board, and have a nice chat with Pepe the pool man. Breakfast was delicious, and among the slowest meals I've ever eaten because you just want to sit there all morning people watching downtown Amalfi and the boats coming and going. There is a small interior garden with ample seating and lights at night if you're for some reason sick of looking at the ocean. Everyone we interacted with was extremely friendly and polite, which is sometimes not what we encounter as a younger couple in a nice place! Some tips on getting there: we took a SITA bus from Salerno train station (the departures were more frequent than the schedules indicated, just make sure it says Amalfi on the front). It was a bit stressful because we didn't know how we'd know when our stop was (I was monitoring our location on Google maps). There IS technically a stop right in front of the hotel but you have to know when to ding the bell and can't have stored suitcases underneath. We ended up getting off in downtown Amalfi which is the last stop so you can't mess up and go too far. You can see the hotel from there but it is about a 7 minute walk uphill with no sidewalks. But the bus ride is beautiful and fun. Maybe mention to the driver where you're getting off! Thank you for making the last leg of our crazy Italy adventure relaxing and enjoyable!
We had an ocean view room - 180-degree view! The room was spacious as we had the loft room (Room 41). The bathroom is a little tight though. And it would've been nice if the tub had a shower. They have good breakfast selection. Overall, we had a wonderful stay.
We stayed here for three nights on our honeymoon and, while the hotel is historic and has a beautiful sea view, they more than doubled the price of our room without telling us. We booked a room here for two nights at $309/night through a friend of ours who is a luxury travel agent, and a few days later decided to add a third night. Instead of just adding on a third night at the previously agreed upon rate OR telling us there was an increase in the rate for the third night, they completely undid the original booking and then rebooked us for 3 nights at over $620 a night! They more than doubled the cost of the room without telling anyone, we only found out when we were checking out. When we checked out and saw the outrageous increase in price all they kept telling us was, "this is what you agreed to". Even the email they kept referencing to our agent had absolutely no mention of a price increase and the final amount wasn't listed. After multiple conversations they absolutely refused to admit to what they did or even offer to comp one night. Outside of the fact that they basically stole from us, for that price, which we didn't even know we were paying, it would absolutely not have been worth it. To build on other reviews I've read here, the rooms are in need of remodeling, the beds and pillows are extremely flat, the food, breakfast and service are mediocre at best. We called room service for ice twice, and it still never showed up. $300/night would have maybe been fair for what you get considering the location and view but at the $620 they charged us, absolutely not.
I stayed her with my daughter's it was just beautiful from the moment we walked in to the moment we left the views are amazing the pool right beside the ocean was wonderful and so close to town would absolutely stay her again staff where so friendly
My wife and I stayed at the Convento Luno Hotel a short walk outside of Amalfi town centre next to the lookout tower on the coast. It was my first trip to Italy so I wasn’t sure what to expect, but I absolutely loved this place. The first point to make is the staff who are all extremely friendly and speak very good English. Right from check-in (when we tried to speak some broken Italian) they appreciated the efforts and spoke back to us slowly and clearly. We arrived around midday so our room wasn’t quite ready so we were offered a drink at the bar. Our luggage was taken to our room before we were shown to it. Second point to make is the romantic charm of the place. The central cloister is extremely peaceful, you can imagine monks reflecting in the same space. At the centre is a well with some little turtles in it. We were told they appeared from nowhere one day and haven’t left since! The hotel has little passage ways and stairs leading off to different areas. The bar is close reception and the sea/town view restaurant is just through the bar area. Our room was on the 1st level near what we assumed was the old check-in desk and entrance. The room was perfectly adequate with a really comfy double bed, lots of storage an ensuite bathroom and air conditioning. We were also very lucky to have a balcony with a lovely view of Atrani and the sea. The walls to other rooms weren’t particularly thick so on the off occasion we did hear a phone or a sliding wardrobe but nothing that woke us or kept us awake. Third point is location. The location of the hotel was perfect for us too. Whilst there is a busy road outside, its literally a 4-5 minute walk to the taxi rank/coach station – we timed ourselves on one day when going to catch the sightseeing bus to Ravello! There is an alternative route into town through a tunnel. Leave the hotel and turn right after 150 yds or so there is a car park with a tunnel. The tunnel takes you directly into Amalfi just behind the cathedral without any fear of traffic. We loved the Convento Luno, it was very peaceful and relaxing, breakfast was ample with plenty of choice and the views of either Amalfi town or Atrani were stunning. The added bonus of a swimming pool further down the cliff was perfect for when we just wanted to laze around or catch some sun. You can also swim in the sea on a calm day. All charges are made to your room, such as drinks from the bar, the mini bar in the bedroom, drinks at the pool and even from the restaurant in the lookout tower across the road. Whilst useful as you don’t need to keep cash on you, just be wary as you get the final bill. Overall – we loved it, would 100% return and wouldn’t consider anywhere else in Amalfi to stay. Thank you for making our mini honeymoon so special!
If you love old world charm and service this is the hotel for you. Hotel was able to meet and exceed all requests, wonderful views and an outstanding garden to sit and drink wine after a long day of touring!
Dangerous walk into town at night Manager, salvatore, very unfriendly, not knowledgeable about the area activities, and actually, was the hindrance to our vacation Asked for a sea view room - ALL rooms are seaview!!! Don't book the 2 story room if you get up during the nite- dangerous
We stayed at Luna Convento for three nights at the end of August and absolutely loved it! A beautiful hotel with so much history, great views and brilliant service. The breakfast was the most substantial we found on our travels and delicious. We also tried the restaurant just across the road in the tower which belongs to the hotel and the food was excellent! I personally enjoyed the pool area and the possibility to jump int the crystal clear sea every day. The rooms could do with an update as it does feel like time stood still in the 70s but the views from our room definitely balanced it out. Special mention to Eduardo, the 'Duke of Amalfi' who was absolutely wonderful throughout our stay and booked us into some charming little restaurants during our stay! We will definitely be back!
