I was disappointed with our hotel in Amalfi, Breakfast on the terrace was nice and the best part of this hotel. Not a single drawer to unpack, not a mirror in the bedroom and only 1 luggage rack, they claimed they did not have any more. Small windows as they are from the orignal convent, floor was marked and dirty in our room. The beds were extremely hard. I felt this hotel was totally over priced, and would not book again.
The redo was done very cheaply, they cut corners and it shows.
Personally, I felt the contempoary design did not fit the structure of an old convent. It was more like a cold dormatory. It is a miss... sorry!

Room Tip: I think I would choose a room that is on the 4th or 5th floor close to receptionor you taking 2 diff...

My boyfriend and I traveled to Amalfi for a 5 day 4 night vacation in late September 2011. It was a perfect time to go, the weather was not too hot and the coast wasn't crowded with tourists as it is in the summer months. We made most travel and excursion arrangements through the concierge at the hotel. We simply emailed them before arriving. They organized a private car to pick us up from the airport. The gentleman who picked us up was very nice and extremely informative. He made recommendations and explained a lot of things to us during the hour long ride from the airport. The drive to and from Amalfi is on very windy, narrow roads and the experienced Italian drivers know how to navigate these roads so they aren't afraid of driving fast. This can make some people get car or motion sickness so let your driver know if you have these issues. The entrance to the hotel is literally built into the side of the cliff. Its a discrete glass sliding door with the name of the hotel and a small parking area on the opposite side of the road. From the main entrance, you take 2 elevators up to the main check in desk which is also where the restaurant, bar, patio, and pool areas are. The hotel is a beautifully renovated convent that uses modern architecture to respect the historic structure. Our luggage was taken at the main entrance and put in our room later than afternoon. We checked in and had a delicious lunch on the patio under a canopy of bougainvilleas (the mozzarella is to die for) while our room was prepared. The room was a decent size for a European hotel. The bed, although plenty big for the both of us, was quite stiff but I generally find this true of most hotels in Europe. The room also had a desk, two night stands, and wardrobe with hangers, etc. The best part of the room is the view from the two windows in the bedroom. Our room looks right out onto the ocean. Every morning we would wake up to the sun shining over the sea. Just breathtaking. And at night, the view of Amalfi from the top of the cliff is like a fairy tale. The street lights dot the main square of the city and the reflection of the moon and the lights from the boats dance off the water. The bathroom was a standard size with a toilet, bidet, tub with shower, large sink, hair dryer, and window with a gorgeous view. The infinity pool is at the very end of the patio area. It's a gorgeous view and has plenty of space for sunning. The best thing about this hotel was definitely the help from the concierge. She booked almost all of our activities. We arrived on day one and talked to her about what we were interested in doing and she made some recommendations and got right on making the reservations and appointments. She also recommended some amazing restaurants (Da Gemma was my favorite). We tipped her for taking care of us the entire time we were there. She was our go to. A couple things to keep in mind: the hotel is not directly in the center of Amalfi but it's only a short 8 minute walk into town. The walk is down a steep stair case that is poorly lit so wear comfortable shoes. To get out of the hotel, you can either take the two elevators or you can walk down a series of descending steps and sidewalks. Another thing to be mindful of is the cost of extra fees, breakfast is not cheap (about 25 euros/person) and laundry service is pretty expensive. Of course, neither of these are necessary so it wasn't a big deal for us.

Beautiful as maybe just a few are, breathtaking views and very caring and helpful personnel.
On the low side, my room was categorized as a Junior Suite (#406) for around 650 Euros a night, and was abiut a standard size room, with very limited space for luggage and maybe the only distintion from a normal room was a tiny closed balcony with two hanging chairs.
Free WiFi was available only near the lobby, and in the room there was only a single point of wired internet and far from the small desk in the room, for a 10 Euros per day charge. COME ON, I am paying 650 Euros, so please, give it for "free" or charge me 660.
The room decor was simple yet spotless but the pillows were cheap and very stiff, and the air conditioned was poor.
They had a nice detail sending a Champagne bottle to the room for my wife's birthday.
If you plan to stay there, avoid room 406. Not worth the price.

We stayed at the hotel for 6 nights from 21stMay. We are lucky enough to stay in some of the best hotels in Europe and I have to say that this hotel surpassed our expectations. The staff, room, food and the view were fabulous. We would not hesitate to recomend to anyone thinking of staying here to explore the region. The breakfast was wonderful and along with the infinity pool, the 12 Century Cloister and the beauty of Amalfi, we can not wait to return.

Our first stay with the Convento di Amalfi was 10 exceptional nights of bliss in celebration of our 30th wedding anniversary. From the moment we approached the entry to the Hotel and were greeted by the hotel director, Ms. Fulvia Clapier, it was the beginning to one the most incredible experiences of a lifetime.

Housed in a 12th-century monastery, hotel highlights include a 13th-century Norman-Arab cloister, the “Loggia” and the “Passeggiata dei Monaci”, a breathtaking walk overlooking the coastline. The Grand Hotel Convento di Amalfi, perched perfectly above sea level on a cliff top, enjoys spectacular views of Amalfi and the Mediterranean Coast.

It is also just steps away from the historical city center and the harbor of Amalfi. With only 53 rooms, the Grand Hotel Convento di Amalfi has been totally refurbished and harmoniously blends modern comforts with the hotel's historic past. Among the numerous highlights, the hotel includes a panoramic restaurant, swimming pool, wellbeing oasis and fitness center, chapel and private parking.

The evenings are dreamy as they seranade on Friday and Saturday nights by the Italian duo of Leo and Frederico put you in the spirit immediately. The food is to die for with daily specials and a staff the enthusiastically presents with the warm southern Amalfi personality.

Excellence surrounds you in an understated way. It's sophistocated and easy. Just the best!

The harmonious and gracious staff of people who really make the Convento a very special experience provide a level of excellence rare in today's machine-driven world!

If you miss staying at this the finest of hotels in Amalfi you will have missed an unparalleled experience on every level.

Three things we would do differently. (1) Stay longer! (2) Not Drive. (3) Take Boats to all the locations on the Amalfi Coast.

You can access Revello by an inexpensive red bus from the square on the hour. Day trips to Positano, Sorrento, Capri and more are easily reached by boat and much preferred versus the harrowing drive along the beautiful coast.

We're already planning our return! It was that outstanding!

We arrived at the hotel on honeymoon having spent the previous 5 nights in the Grand Hotel Tremezzo Palace on Lake Como, which is also 5-star. However, the difference in quality between the 2 hotels was marked. As a converted monastery, we thought the hotel would be bursting with character but the ultra modern white decor, poor positioning of the reception on the 5th floor and sheer size of the hotel make it soulless and sterile. We had a classic room, which was small with very limited storage space for clothes. The "fitness center" is poor and the "spa" virtually non-existent - the only evidence of the spa is an extortionate price list and a disused steam room. The leisure facilities appear an after thought in an attempt, albeit successful, to achieve a 5-star rating. We also found the staff to be rude, unhelpful and disinterested.

That said, the hotel is very well located in its proximity to Amalfi where we ate every night. Amalfi is a very pretty little town with some good places to eat about an 8 minute walk downhill from the hotel. Word of warning though - if the weather is even remotely cloudy boats do not run from Amalfi to Positano, Capri, Sorrento etc which leaves one a bit stranded - the bus takes 2 hours to get to Sorrento due to the winding roads and is v overcrowded.

We would come back to the Amalfi coast again but wouldn't stay at this hotel.

Stayed here for 2 nights after staying in Capri for 1 night at La Minerva. I felt sad leaving Capri and thought it will be hard to beat the hotel in Capri, but my experience was otherwise.

We drove to Amalfi (from Sorrento) and firstly missed the hotel entrance: it's directly after the tunnel entering Amalfi. so the car park is directly to the right. The porter was very friendly and parked the car for us and took us to the lift.....the first lift ! Coming out of the lift, we were greeted by friendly Pietro who took us yet to another lift to the 5th floor - Reception.

Arriving in the reception and going out onto the balcony - breathtaking views ! Photos can show you a lot but being there on the balcony overlooking Amalfi and the harbour is a special personal experience.

The hotel has been renovated beautifully. It still has the feeling of being a convent and yet being a modern hotel at the same time. Rooms are spotlessly clean. Bed is super comfy and again, slept like a log. Views from the bedroom - uncomparable. The hotel has so many different rooms to visit: camera room, reading room, little chape on the 4th floor, balconies, lemon grove, infinity pool, breakfast balcony, rooms high up on the room - it just has so many places to explore.

The dining room is grand. The breakfast is lavish, it even has prosecco!

The seating room is so cosy as if you're in a proper living room. There's also a huge book / folder in the seating area in front of the dining room that holds all information about the hotel, including its history, and all sorts of recommendations for restaurants, day trips etc. It's definitely worth a read.

There's a walkway down to Amalfi from the hotel and it goes through the lovely narrow streets in town. It's an exciting walk into town as first you go down the mountain cliff and all of a sudden you're walking past people's homes - very unique experience.

The hotel service is friendly and professional, like a 5* hotel, though Pietro at Reception was very friendly and helpful especially that I had so many questions about the hotel and about recommendations for restaurants etc.

We stayed here for 2 nights and it's definitely the most unforgettable hotel I've ever been to. It's unforgettable because of the views, the unique building itself and how its been preserved, the fact that it is after all a listed building (and apparently the hotel only has license for 35 years to run it as a hotel) - this is a very special hotel indeed.
