Beautiful location, but lacking some comforts

Posted Jul 9, 2016
Location: Trattoria da Lorenzo is a local restaurant that you simply must visit. The food and service are almost too good. Ask the bar staff to reserve a table
If you want to get away from the hustle and bustle of Amalfi for a quiet, peaceful night's sleep in fresh mountain air then Villa Giuseppina is the perfect spot for a relaxing getaway. The views from their many terraces - bar, restaurant, breakfast and bedroom terraces, pool - are stunning, truly awe-inspiring. We hired a car for the week, and the drive to Amalfi was not too inconvenient, taking only 10-15mins max (in early July). There are regular shuttle buses from the town square if you don't want to drive. Ravello is only 5mins away across the valley (walking distance if you're fit!) and is another beautiful spot to visit, wander around and eat in. It also hosts world-renowned music festivals each summer. Our only complaints concern certain hotel amenities; mid-meal snacks are not formally on offer, so if you can't get to breakfast by 9.30am, or if you miss lunch and can't wait for the restaurant to open in the evening you might go hungry. The bar staff were very accommodating though and did what they could when asked. Wi-Fi is strictly limited to the reception area of the hotel, which means you're stuck with italian-language TV if you want an evening in vegging, and you'll have to Skype rather publicly. These are relatively minor gripes given the cleanliness of the rooms and the swimming pool and the friendliness of the staff, but equally they are, these days basic comforts and easily remedied.

Nice view, hotel however showing signs of age

Posted Jul 20, 2014
Pros: View is it's main asset, could be nice but owners seem reluctant to run it as a cosmopolitan high quality hotel as oppose to a provincial hang-out
Cons: Prioritise your guests and be concerned for their well being Vs your non-guests friends who do not care how noisy or badly behaved their kids are.
Location: Be prepared to walk to any decent restaurants which are in Ravello or Amalfi.
Nice'ish hotel, they mean well but not impressed by the pool being open to everyone in the local town including extremely noisy and unruley children, rather dampened the whole experience. Most of the staff are really well meaning and try to make for a nice stay, Maria at breakfast is fantastic and goes out of her way to make things nice but can't but help feel the owners not putting back into the hotel e.g. some room furniture pretty dilapidated and the circus around the pool which guests are paying for and expecting a relaxing break smacks of local town first, guests second. This our second stay at the hotel (the first about 4 years ago) and it's definately not the same.

A pleasant surprise

Posted Sep 24, 2012
Pros: Friendliness and helpfulness
Location: A bit of a walk if you don't have a car.
A most delightful stay! It's not a large hotel, guest came from several different countries and we ended up feeling like family. We'd definitely come back if we have the privilege of coming back to the Amalfi coast.

A great value for the service and asthetics

Posted Mar 27, 2012
Pros: cleanliness, aesthetic appeal. proximity.
Cons: Its a bit out of the way on some winding narrow Italian roads. But this is also and advantage. Small shower stalls.
Location: Scala is out of the way in Amalfi but that has its advantages. Its only 15 minutes by car to Amalfi and parking is cheap.
Wonderful hotel experience.The hotel is in Scala. Scala is out of the way a bit from the major tourist areas in Amalfi but that has its advantages. Scala itself is a tiny town with a couple of stores and restaurants within walking distance of the hotel. All rooms have a quiet view across to Revello. Its only 15 minutes by car to Amalfi and parking is cheap in Amalfi . So when you're back to relax, its quiet and peaceful. This is Europe so the rooms are small by American standards but very comfortable and clean. The beds and linens were very comfortable.The showers, again, are European and make airline bathrooms feel roomy. You get the hang of the small showers quick. The rooms are cleaned daily. Fresh towels daily. Enzo was a terrific host. Hotel owners everywhere need to take lessons from Enzo. This was unlike any other hotel experience Ive had. Sincere, personal attention to his guests. It was more like going to a family owned resort in Northern Minnesota. Enzo was very helpful with directions, recommendations and accommodating my needs. About the hotel itself; its small, perhaps 15 rooms. The hotel interior is beautiful old Italian and very, very well kept. The on-site restaurant was closed as was the pool in off-season late March. One must pay attention to the beautiful artwork hanging on the walls. Go downstairs to the common room in the evening and enjoy its beautiful marble floors, comfortable furniture, and views of the lemon orchards and across to Revello.

Dejlig stille og roligt.

Posted Sep 8, 2016
Pros: Atmosfæren fra første øjeblik vi trådte ind på området.
Cons: Egentligt ikke. Man rejser ud for at opleve noget anderledes end hvad man er vant til. Og det får man her.
Location: Tæt på flere livlige byer, men alligevel så langt væk at man får ro fra trafiklarm og råbende mennesker.
Det var en oplevelse af dem man husker længe. For det gode og hyggelige. Man følte at man hurtigt blev en del af "familien". Fantastiske varme mennesker. Man føler nærmest lyst til at sende dem et postkort.
