Right from check in you are made to feel special. They do not keep you at a counter waiting to check in, they escort you to the bar area and give you a glass of champagne while they get the paper work, keys and so on. Great way to start off a stay. That is the kind of service you can expect for the entire stay. Having been a convent a long time ago, there is a beautiful active church still within the walls. While we were there a wedding was taking place in the outdoor courtyard area which looks classical as all around it is very old. The entire hotel is perched on the steep hillsides above Amalfi. The entrance off the road is small and tricky for drivers (very small parking area). An elevator wisks you up a number of floors to get you to the hotel itself, then off to another elevator to the reception floor. Then you may be taking a third elevator to the rooms. Not a big deal but necessary with old places like this that were converted. Because of the steep hillside, nearly everything faces the sea. Whether it be most of the rooms, the bar, the restaurant or the pool. Walk past terraces of lemon trees to get to the compact but nice pool area. You can order drinks and sip them in the pool right at the infinity edge. Just hanging out there gazing over the Amalfi harbor and sea itself is very relaxing. Our room was huge. We had a Jr Suite with sea view and large terrace. The terrace itself was twice the size of our large room. Awesome views of course. The bathrooms have been updated; marble, nice but not big shower etc. Bedrooms were very clean, traditional look. Nice but maybe not the best (no real complaint though). The terrace was really spectacular though. Not private as the rooms next to us had a low hedge between the terraces. Did not bother us. It had 2 garden chaise, a table/umbrella with 2 chairs, and a huge 2 person round lounger that was quite comfortable. We had breakfast every morning there and ate dinner once during our stay. All were very good with a nice selection. The service is what set them apart. Everywhere you went EVERYONE was courteous and offered help in an unassuming way. Maritza (I think was her name) was particularly helpful at the front desk. She arranged for a car service from Positano when all buses were full and no ferry service ran. She also arranged for a private boat hire for a day which was fantastic - highly recommended (I'll write about that separately). The place may be very expensive (we were there at the height of the season by the looks of it, but it was our 30th anniversary and it was well worth it.
We stayed 2 nights here. Everything about the hotel is perfect. The views, the bathrooms, the architecture and the location. A special mention to Flavia who made our stay that much more special. Can't wait to return!
We have visited NH Collection Grand Hotel Convento di Amalfi for the third time and are still discovering new things. Surprised by the warm welcome by the staff and the wonderful sea view room. The hotel offers a selection of workshops for the guests to attend. We have participated in the pasta workshop (how to make your own pasta), the limoncello workshop (how to make limoncello) and the wine & cheese tasting (tasting of local wines and cheeses). We have enjoyed the workshops from Sous Chef Alfonso, Davide and Sommelier Diego and learned some useful tips and tricks for at home. The best feeling in the world is waking up and opening your window or balcony door and see the sea and the beautiful Amalfi coast. For us this place is magic and we really feel at home in the Convento. There is always a reason to come back to this beautiful hotel, experiencing the true hospitality by the staff and discover new things in the hotel and the entire Amalfi Coast. Grazie mille for an another unforgettable experience e a la prossima! Ciao and best regards, Jochem & Jacqueline
We had 5 days in this superb hotel. The staff were lovely and attentive to us. The views off the breakfast patio in a morning were like something out of a film scrip. Cannot wait to go back. Great room, good facilities, good food, and lovely staff.
I was able to take a short break so decided on the Amalfi Coast in October - Friday to Tuesday. I chose to stay in the Grand Hotel Convento di Amalfi - I wasn't disappointed either. The main asset of this hotel is the view - one word sensational! The room was basic for a five star hotel not luxurious but the bed I found to be very comfortable and the bathroom was surprisingly large. The shutters on the windows were welcome at night as I like complete darkness although the room was quite warm. The facilities in the hotel were excellent with the pool a delight to sit at and staff were all very attentive although there were a few grumpy characters. The receptionists are excellent, knowledgeable and extremely helpful. Breakfast again was very good but having it on that terrace with that view made the trip! Lucky to get a discounted deal for October and the weather was unusually hot for that time of year. What can I say other than I am hoping to return next year!!
This was our second stay in this wonderful hotel. Our 4 nights there this year were as good as it can be. From the moment we arrived at the unusual hotel entrance until the moment we left, we were looked after so well. Ever member of staff was so welcoming and helpful. Nothing was too much trouble. The location overlooking the town and harbour are second to none, the convent of fascinating architecture, the restaurant with its Japanese style cuisine was a very enjoyable experience, and the breakfasts were out of this world. Having said all of this, it was the staff that were the most outstanding feature of our stay. They were all excellent.
A wonderful hotel that I would recommend to anyone . Commanding views of the coast line and despite being so high up and on several levels the staff ensure that you never notice this . Clean , staff always polite , amiable and extremely helpful . The food and service impeccable. A special thank you to Kristian who was always cheery and nice and all his colleagues who seem to work seamlessly to ensure your stay goes smoothly and with no worries . Nothing is too much trouble for the staff at this hotel . You get what you pay for .
Beautiful hotel , lovely caring staff Amazing breakfast Stunning views Slight distance from the town but they will take and pick you up any time of day Made the experience very warm and personal Refreshing for a chain hotel Every staff member was focused on delivering high quality customer service
This is an oasis of calm serenity amid the madness that is the traffic along the Amalfi coast. The views are beyond spectacular, the restaurant world class and the staff simply could not be friendlier or more helpful. We were there for my wife's 50th and could not have been more pleased anywhere in the world.
I was so impressed both by the beauty of the hotel from the infinity pool to the views! Also, staff was super accommodating and helpful. Breakfast in the morning was more than adequate. Truly a gem and perfect location.
