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!
Perillo booked the group we were with here for four nights, a delightful little 12th-century hotel. We were fortunate to be able to leave the window open to sleep with the sound of the ocean below us. The town of Amalfi was a short walk down the hill. Our breakfasts we nice and we ate dinner there a few time too. Their center court was good to sit to talk about what we did during the day with a couple of glasses of wine. We enjoyed our stay here.
The Amalfi Coast is one of my favourite stretches of coast line. It is simply stunning. Staying at the Hotel Luna Convento was supposed to be a highlight of my month long trip in Europe but sadly it was a big disappointment, especially considering what i paid for the two night stay. In short I feel the hotel is living off its glory days from decades ago. I sense very little investment in the upkeep and maintenance of the property. In many ways it is like stepping into a time warp back to the 60's & 70's. I fully appreciate old world charm and many hotels do it spectacularly well in Italy but the Luna Convento is simply old.There is nothing charming about chipped floor and wall tiles, peeling paint, flaking plaster walls, rusty patio furniture, creaky old wooden wardrobes.... the list goes on. To be fair house keeping did an admirable job in cleaning the room but when the tiles you walk on are chipped and grouting between them crumbling away to leave gaps - it just never felt comfortable walking in your room with out shoes or slippers on your feet. The bathroom was very small and dingy. Once again the issue with the old tiles made the whole shower experience less than enjoyable. I agree with previous reviews that the bathrooms need a major update. My only explanation for the variation in reviews is that there must be some good rooms and some like mine in need of some major renovation. The position of the hotel does afford it a magnificent view of the town of Amalfi. Particularly from the tables on the terrace when having breakfast. The breakfast itself is also very good. I would go as far as saying the quality and variety of whats on offer is amongst the best I've seen in Italy. The decor and uniforms of staff could once again do with a bit of an update especially when the large dining area is devoid of atmosphere. The walk into and out of town can be somewhat hair raising and not for the faint hearted. There is no footpath for the majority of the ten minute walk so pedestrians wheeling cases take their chance with locals on scooters, tourist buses and drivers often more interested in the view than other road users. This is not a fault of the hotel of course but upon checkout it would have been a nice gesture to at least assist in wheeling the guests cases to a safe section of the road. All in all a beautiful part of the world that i'm sure I will visit again but my choice of hotel will certainly differ.
Everything about this hotel is amazing. The view, food, service, wraparound room sized marble showers and of course the people who stay here. Built into a cliff with an Ocean water pool and magnificent morning views with clouds laying on the hill tops. Considered to be one of the most beautiful places on Earth Did I mention that this was once a monestary of Saint Francis and historical artifacts abound here. If you are planning a trip to Amalfi whether for pleasure, a wedding , or a honeymoon. This is a hidden gem. Enjoy!!
We recently spent 3 nights in this hotel. If you are looking for an awsome view to the city, this is the place. But if you are also looking for a comfort and updated room, don't expect much from Luna Conveto. We stayed in the room 5, with balcony. The matress is old and tough. The pillows are so thin and old, you will need four or five to get some confort. There are two wardrobes, both with curtains and both with a lot of dust inside. There is a frige in the room, but don't expect it to cooler enough your stuff. There are some electrical outlets, but all of them close to the floor and dificult to reach. The wifi works fine (there was a router inside the room). The bathroom is very bed. There is a bathtub and a shower over it. This shower was so close to the wall and so close to the coutain, that was almost impossible to use it. Definitely the bathroom need to be entirely renovated. The whole hotel need a big renovation. The hotel seems to be a great hotel (it was an old monastery, turned to a hotel in the begging of the 19th century), but it seems the hotel doesn't had a big investiment since 1960's. Never plan to go back again to this hotel. Planning to go back to the city, that is beatifull.
Our family of 3 people including a 12 year old boy stayed at the Luna Convento for one night. Arrival On arrival, the hotel took care of our car (for 20$ per night) which is well worth it when you consider the parking challenges in the Amalfi coast. The hotel checked-in our luggage until our room was ready at 14h00. Room We were escorted to our room which has 2 levels and a balcony with an amazing view to Amalfi downtown and on the ocean. Amazing experience. The room has a safe, a refrigerator, AC and a small sofa and table, setup in a small living room. Wifi is easy to setup and was working enough for my 12 year old boy to not complain, which is always a good benchmark for adults. Pool Swimming in the pool and the sea was also great. The pool was clean. You have someone that takes your drink orders. Service We found the service to be good. I let the reception know that we had no cold water in our bathroom, coming back 90 minutes later from the pool, it was fixed. Breakfast Was delicious, you can eat beacon, fruits, eggs, fresh orange juice, pastries while enjoying may be the most beautiful view of Amalfi. Things to improve The shower experience is not good, you take your shower in a tub without curtain and water gets all over the floor. My wife who took her shower 3rd didn't get hot water. I suggest to the hotel to fix the shower problem by putting a window or a curtain. If you want to be located in Amalfi downtown with a great view on the ocean and the city with a nice pool and are ready to pay a premium for that, this hotel is for you. I would return.
A perfect choice for our recent stay in Amalfi. We had a fantastic hotel room with a great sea view; the pool has a lovely aspect and an added bonus of access to dip into the sea; the breakfast and dinner was good - with views out across the sea and port, the location was ideal - a short walk into town. Lastly, the staff from start to finish could not have been nicer or more helpful. This hotel is a little pricey, but, fully recommended. Dominic - London.
We had an amazing stay in this hotel. The location, scenery, and service are outstanding. Our room had a view of the sea, and a gentle breeze came in all day. Great breakfast, and the pool by the sea is perfectly situated. We will definitely be back!!!
