Fabulous View, Great Base to Explore Amalfi CoastPosted May 25, 2015
Pros: The location as a base for exploring Amalfi coast. The gorgeous view. The charming, helpful and delightful hostess Irma.
Cons: The shower had modern fittings and great pressure with choice of rainhead, handheld or four sprays, but it was really quite tiny.
Location: It is high up the mountain and so affords a great view but is a 10 min drive to get to the coast road. Two excellent restaurants nearby.
We found this hotel/B&B to be perfect for our needs. Irma upgraded us to a double room with private terrace which had a gorgeous view. Furore and this hotel is well up the mountain from the coast road and so it is like being perched on the side of a mountain with a bird's eye view of the coast and sea below. Our hostess, Irma was absolutely amazing. The day before our arrival, she had suffered a serious burn to her face in the kitchen. An injury that would have had most owners closing their resort, but Irma kept right on, smiling through the pain and working tirelessly to provide an excellent stay for us. Her breakfast was delicious with her homemade breads and jams. She is so kind about offering travel advice about what to see and helping to organize restaurant reservations etc. We were most impressed with her as a hostess and as a wonderful person. The room is spacious, with a bar fridge, TV and very comfortable bed and a walkout to our own private and secluded terrace, the view from which is breathtaking! It is a small hotel and so very quiet with only a few other guests. There is free parking a short distance away, but it is a bit of a climb to get to it. Also, there are steps down from the road making it difficult to get your luggage in and there are steps from the room to the breakfast and reception area, which would be challenging for some, but that is not unusual in Amalfi, which seems to be nothing but steps. All in all, a wonderful experience. Highly recommend.

Hervorragendes verstecktes RefugiumPosted May 3, 2015
Pros: s. o.
Cons: Kopfkissen könnten besser sein.
Location: Das Hotel ist nicht leicht zu erreichen. Es verlangt schon ein gewisses Maß an fahrerischem Können. Für den der Ruhe sucht ideal.
Die Betten und Kopfkissen sind zwar etwas hart, aber alles andere ist hervorragend. Gute italienische Küche. Sehr gutes Frühstück mit teilweise selbstgemachten Zutaten. Kochkurse möglich. Sehr saubere Zimmer. Sehr guter persönlicher Service, der nie aufdringlich wird. Das Echo aus dem Jahre 800 ist sehr zu empfehlen.

6 miles up the mountain !Posted Mar 28, 2015
Pros: It's not a hotel -it's a BnB. - the setting looking over the sea is gorgeous.
Cons: Better signs on road as the location is remote. Except for breakfast there is no food nearby. Pick up food before you head up the mountain.
Location: Yhis BnB is 10k up a mountain. Unless you hike, there is nothing nearby.
From Positano you must keep asking for directions unless you speak Italian - sign language helped ! Upon arrival ( tiny sign ) there is no direct parking. Down 4 flights of steps to owner;s place- then up 3 flights to room. On the good side - beautiful view - great breakfast - nice help.- clean room

A little haven of tranquilityPosted Feb 11, 2015 on Hotels
Amazing, beautiful and breath taking are some of the words I would use to describe our stay at this beautiful house. The views on the sea view balcony room we choose were mesmerising. The room is beautifully decorated and furnished and has a lovely comfortable bed and facilities. Breakfast was home cooked and delicious. Would highly recommend this hotel to explore the amalfi coast or blue grotto attraction.

Excellent stayPosted Jan 7, 2015
Pros: Great views over breakfast on the terrace
Cons: Tea and coffee making facilities in room included
Location: Amalfi close by where transport is available to top destinations including tours to Pompeii
Great area for exploring this coast with fantastic views as high on a hill, but unless you don't (we didn't) mind walking up and down the hillside (45 walk down steps to small beach) or using bus, you will need a car. A few really nice eating places in the area but again an average 20 minute walk to these along/up/down hillside.

Furore arroccato tra la costiera amalfitanaPosted Dec 14, 2014
Pros: Il personale, l'accoglienza della proprietaria e la gentilezza
Cons: Siamo capitati in un'eccezionale fredda pasqua e la pompa di calore ha avuto alcuni problemi
Location: Lievemente isolato, necessario avere l'auto per muoversi. A poche km dal centro di Furore (alimentari, negozietti e pizzerie)
In costiera per il break di pasqua, abbiamo scelto il B&B Eco dell'800 a Furore. Posizione meno agevole del previsto poichè un pò arroccata tra le alture della Costiera. Personale gentilissimo e disponibilissimo, davvero accogliente

best shower in 2+ yearsPosted Dec 5, 2014 on Hotels
Hotel staff was very very nice. The breakfast was great. They served, hard boiled eggs, bread, butter, jams, cafe/cappuccino, juice, water, fruit tarts, chocolate muffins, oranges, and i'm sure i'm leaving something else out. The room was very nice and large, with a great view of the Med. Bed was big and comfortable. The shower had one of the overhead rain type shower heads. The overall size of the shower wasn't huge but it was a very pleasant experience, which many European showers are not.

Fantastische Lage!! Super Hotel!Posted Oct 26, 2014 on Hotels
Das Hotel, befindet sich an einer Super Lage es ist Traumhaft das Morgenessen auf der Terrasse zu geniessen. Wir sind mit dem Auto angereist, die Strassen sind etwas eng aber es ist absolut zumutbar. Es gibt kostenlose Parkplätze zur Verfügung. Mit dem Bus welcher zu Fuss in 4 min zu erreichen ist kommt man in 30 min günstig (2,20 Euro) nach Amalfi, von dort gibt es verschiedene Touren nach Capri, Sorento oder Napoli. Das Frühstück ist sehr vielfältig man kann praktisch alles bestellen, es ist alles frisch und Homemade und es gibt selber gemachte Marmelade aus Amalfi Zitronen oder feigen aus dem Hauseigenen Garten. Wir hatten einen erholsamen ruhigen und Fantastischen Urlaub im Hotel L'Eco dell'800!

MagicPosted Oct 11, 2014
Pros: The view, the landlady and the breakfasts.
Cons: If we were being ultra picky the only thing I moaned about was a slightly hard bed mattress
Location: The whole Amalfi coast is on your doorstep. By car, public buses of boat, everything was easy to reach. Steps to bus stop took 5 minutes.
A very simple B&B which we could not fault. Its a perfect half-way to explore the whole area from Sorrento to Salerno, and perfectly situated between Amalfi to the east and Positano to the west. Irma, our 'landlady' could not have been more helpful. Breakfasts were a delight on the terrace every morning (sure, we had the right weather for it), home made pastries and marmalades were the highlight. Our room was clean and spacious, with ensuite and roof terrace with stunning view over the ocean - great if you want private sunbathing. But there is so much to see in the coastal towns nearby there was little time to sunbathe, and Irma was so helpful with directions, best places, where to get the great value all-day bus tickets, etc. Its VERY steep in the whole area, dont be put off by the difficulty of manoevring a car, its the same anywhere here!
