Hotel ok but access is an issue
Posted Sep 21, 2016 on Wotif
The hotel itself is ok, however without a car the hotel is difficult to get to. Although only 2.2kms from Amalfi, it is almost all uphill with hundreds of steps (one estimate from a local was 900). The bus to Pontone, the closest town, is sporadic, doesn't appear to adhere to a timetable and even the locals can't agree what times it runs on Sundays. As for the taxis, the requested amout on Saturday evening for the 5km drive was obscene, only to become more obscene on the Sunday when the price for the same drive was an additional 30%. Because of the poor bus service, the taxis are holding people to ransom, and the losers will be the B&Bs further up the mountain. That would be a shame.
