PRO: We stayed at this hotel in October 2019. The hotel is nicely located in the center of Amalfi, near the ferrys to the islands and local buses. CON: The hotel is small and could use some updating. Rooms are well kept but the mattresses need replacing. The breakfast in the morning offers a ok selection but the seating is tight and it is hard to get around. This is a family owned business so family is always around. We unfortunately witnessed a mother/daughter argument while there 🤦♀️. A small suggestion to the owners. This is a professional business. We choose your locations for vacation to relax and get away from this. Keep it professional for your guests.
Staying here as part if a group, there was no lift from the street which is fairly common, but there were broken handrails so it was very unsafe when carrying luggage upstairs. The room is in need of ungrading. I definitely wouldn't recommend staying here.
This hotel is close to everything you could want. Beach clubs across the street, restaurants, shops, and stores to get walking beers/wines at. It's across from the marina where you can catch a ferry or water taxi to Positano or Capri. I highly suggest as your walking through the Piazza to travel in the tunnels and up the stairs for a more authentic experiences and eat where the locals eat. The room had several drawbacks. The 2 story terrace housed every air conditioning unit for the building, made noise, and leaked condensation soaking the terrace and making it slick. It was also dirty. The door to access the balcony is small. It's about 5' high, I'm 5' 4" and cracked my head so hard on the doorframe I had a knot on my skull for days. The view, however is breathtaking and surreal. The breakfast was fantastic with meats, cheese, fresh tomatoes, cereal, yogurt, hard boiled eggs and other treats. They have amazing croissants served warm with a little powdered sugar. The cappuccinos were delicious. The staff were very friendly and helpful, and I highly recommend the private shuttle ride from Naples if that's how you're entering. The roads are narrow and treacherous, would not recommend driving or renting a car as it's not for the faint of heart. Renting scooters in town is the way to get around the coast efficiently. The hotel was helpful in telling us where to find overnight parking for them as parking is also an issue around the hotel.
What made us choose to stay here is the good location - it's just a few steps from the Amalfi Duomo (the main church in Amalfi), it's situated right in the main piazza of Amalfi, it's also near the beach, the ferry port and the bus terminal. We booked a Junior Suite facing the sea and it comes with a little balcony where you could step out to see the views outside. We could see the beach. the ferry port and the bus stop (for buses going to Ravello or Positano) from our room. Soundproof was good so though we were facing the beach and cars were passing by below, we hardly heard any noise once we closed the balcony door. It was just me & wife staying but our Junior Suite room comes with a king size bed plus two single beds (big enough for a family of four). Aircon was working nice & cool, complimentary wifi speed fast, there's also mini fridge in our room. No in-room safe deposit box though (we were informed that we could leave our valuables with the reception desk). Overall, the room furnishing was a bit dated & old-fashioned and we found a few drawer handles missing. The bed was not the most comfortable but okay for the one night we stayed there. TV was super small and wasn't working when we checked in but it was fixed by the receptionist after we complained. Breakfast was okay but the breakfast area was pretty cramped, just next to the reception desk. Some of the front desk staff were more friendly than others. There are 28 steps from street level up to the hotel lobby but don't worry, there's a lift inside the hotel that goes to each floor. There are lots of sourvenir shops, cafes and restaurants near the hotel. There's also a Deco supermarket just a few minutes walk from the hotel (past the church). Don't miss trying the pastries at the famous Pansa bakery shop. It's just next to the church. We had one of the worst meal in Italy at the restaurant (the centre one) below the hotel. Food was horrible & not worth the price. Hotel Fontana is situated directly behind the fountain in the main square, facing the Amalfi Duomo. Directions to Hotel Fontana : from the ferry port, walk towards the main square, in the direction of the Amalfi church. You will see a white building (with green balconies. This is Hotel Fontana). Walk through the arch (the middle arch) in front of the white building. Go through the middle arch and you will pass some small shops along the way. The entrance of Hotel Fontana is a few steps after the arch on your right (you will reach the hotel entrance before you see the church).. Look out for the signboard of the hotel. Lobby is up the stairs. Hope this helps!. In my opinion, this hotel is okay for one night's stay mainly for the good location but a bit pricey for staying in old-fashioned rooms. Really needs some re-furbishing!
We spent 2 nights at Hotel Fontana. We made a reservation for a twin room through their own website and got a wonderful room with sea view and balcony. That was such a nice surprise when we opened the balcony doors and find ourselves right on the side of the sea. The hotel entrance requires to take a flight of stairs but as we traveled light, it caused no specific difficulties to us. Breakfast was good, and the staff was very friendly, offering us coffee or espresso at breakfast. The room lacked a water cooker but we carried our own, so we could still enjoy an evening tea in our room. The location is ideal, it is right next to the bus station from where you can travel in any direction. We traveled by bus from Salerno, daytripped to Ravello and travelled on by bus to Sorrento. Do buy your bus tickets at a tabacco shop, you can't buy them on the bus.
The only positive about this hotel is the location. It is a rundown buidling, with unconfortable beds, old furniture and extremely overpriced. The lack of a good working ac was also missing. Service was poor and certainly not very proffessional.
Part of a paparazzi tour we booked, nice enough hotel in great location right in the square of Almafi. Dinner was included as part of the package which was a bonus. Hotel overall was good, we had a view out over the port, no issues with noise. Staff were friendly. A bit cramped for breakfast which was very basic but adequate.
This hotel has an amazing location. It is only steps away from the Duomo and the main street of Amalfi... there's only one. Rooms are spartan, but impeccably clean. Beds are reasonably comfortable. Staff is fantastic! Parking is an issue. There is no parking by the hotel, so this can get a bit confusing. However, you can contact the front desk as you enter Amalfi, by using Whatsapp. They immediately responded to us. They sent Andreas to pick up our car and privately park it overnight for €20. Well worth it. You need to wait for him near the roundabout by the main entrance into Amalfi, and this can be a bit tricky, but is doable. Lots of great restaurants nearby and the patisserie just across the square has pastries you will remember for the rest of your life! Ask for a room with a balcony facing the Duomo.
Yesterday we stayed in the 4 star Hotel Positano with a scenic view of the Amalfi Coast and Positano for €150 per night. Today we are staying in the 2 star Hotel Fontana in Amalfi with a view of the Mediterranean and the transit centre for €150 per night. The prices clearly show that accomodation on the Amalfi Coast is in demand and expensive. To be fair, the Hotel Fontana is in a prime location, being only 200M from the beach, the ferry, Sita and local bus terminals and overlooking the main town square, with its cathedral and endless shops, cafes and restaurants. The rooms are reasonable in size with cavernous 12 foot ceilings but not much atmosphere, large fridge, no safe and overly hard bed. No complaints about the bathroom, small shower but nice hot water. Breakfast is the usual European cold fare; cereal, cold meat and cheese, yoghurts and a wide variety of cakes and bread. The dining room is very small and cramped so don’t eat too much or you may find it hard to extricate yourself! Tea/coffee making facilities are not available in the rooms but are available on request but bring your own tea. If you are thinking of going into the hills to Ravello, you have 3 options; the Hop-on Hop-off bus for €5 one way, the local Sita bus for €1.30 or an expensive taxi. If you choose either bus be prepared to fight, scratch and bite your way on, particularly on the return journey. Seats are limited and no regard is given to either queue position or length of wait. Dog eat dog but worth the trip.
this hotel was centrally located and also close to the sea, the staff were very nice, until check out. One of the days I had asked for an extra towel and then left it in the bathroom with the others. However, at check out, the woman said they could not find the towel and that I had stolen it. I was so upset by this! I offered to wait while they checked the room and told them they could search my luggage if they wanted but she just said no and insisted I had stolen it. If you stay here and ask for anything, make sure you return it, get a receipt and ask them to update their computer or you will have a very unpleasant experience at check out
