Word of caution
Posted Sep 17, 2015 on Hotels
Can't recommend this spot. Part of a 2 week Italy trip, this was the worst hotel we booked by far. Amalfi is beautiful and offers better accommodation for the same money. We know because we booked a night elsewhere (Fontana) even though we had already paid here. Got a much nicer room for the same money, ocean view, great service, etc. Big word of caution, there are exactly 53 stairs to climb through a narrow outdoor staircase here. If you are carrying anything with you (like luggage) then you are in for a workout. When you manage to find the place at the top of the stairs, you will likely be locked out and need to buzz for reception. After a few minutes hopefully someone shows up unlockes the doors to the aromatic smell of some incense burning somewhere in the small lobby. Meager breakfast, no view, just generally not a place we would recommend. Did I mention 53 stairs? FYI, we stayed in great hotels in Rome, Tuscany, Venice, etc on this trip. This one was the only disappointment.
Comment from Hotel Management

Dear Mr Brian,
Thank you for your comment. it is very important and useful for us to improve our work. it is very strange you found so bad in fact you had all services you booked. All or rooms have all three star hotel comforts bathroom with two shower heads, hairdryer, free toileters, air conditioning, wi-fi, modern flat screen tv and fridge. Actually you booked a single room with an additional bed. I would have been happy to give you a superior room with a better view at the same price of the single room (that you booked) but unfortunately they were all booked. That was a high season week-end and Amalfi is very busy in these periods and I don’ t thing you staid in another hotel even through you have paid here because you staid here all the days you booked.
There are some staris to reach the hotel (staris are everywhere in Amalfi) and I would be happy to reserve a luggage transportation service if you asked me answering to my email in which I asked you if you need it or other others service. For check in all you need to do is to ring the door phone. No incense never burned in nowhere.
hoping to have you our guests again to give you our best room.
Best regards Annalisa.
