“Someone needs to remind the hotel that we're PAYING guests”
Reviewed 30 July 2012

I don't ever recall staying in a hotel and being told what I can and can't do in my own room that we've paid to stay in. That was until staying here.

Stayed here as part of our honeymoon in May, the owner (as other people have stated) was creepy and I caught checking out my wife a few times. I let it go, no point getting upset over that, esp while we were guests and didn't want to risk anything being taken from our rooms. The hotel has numerous rules that contradict themselves to stop guests bringing in their own food and drink, one reason was because it brings in an influx of ants, another was because festivities go on too late and can get rowdy which bother other guests, but then go on to say that food and drink can be purchased from the hotel to consume in the room and that breakfast can be ordered to the room.

The room itself was large (we stayed in one of the suites) with a sofa and a balcony overlooking the water and partial view of Amalfi.

One thing that REALLY bothered us however was there was a window in the side of the room with blinds that did not shut without being held shut by something (I ended up using my suitcase to hold them shut). The MAJOR issue with this was that directly outside the room there was an unlit outside stairwell that had a direct view of anyone coming in or out of the bathroom. This was a massive invasion of our privacy.

The bathroom really was nothing special at all, the soap in the wash basin and shower being soap dispensers and there was mould growing above the shower.

Not one to be put off by the contradictory rules, the creepy hotel manager or the invasion of privacy we enjoyed quite a few drinks on the balcony and left the bottles and cans in the bin in the room when we checked out, our little way of flicking the bird to them.

Avoid at all costs.

Room Tip: Stay somewhere else.

Hotel is a little bit far from center (400 meters) however it is good to find an opportunity to walk a bit( walking to centre is easy but returning is just like average hill climbing with medium incline)hotel staff is very friendly and helpful.Rooms are clean, comfortable and very simple looking.View is absolutely astonishing and roof top is very nice.Overall,I suggest this hotel for stay in amalfi with reasonable prices.

We stayed at the Bellevue last fall. The hotel is very clean and the rooms airy. The photos may suggest that the hotel is on the sea, but it is actually across the very busy road, though the views are still good. Rules are abundant. You may not have food or even a glass of wine in your room-there are signs prominently displayed. The breakfast is, according to other guests, the same every day, but, while limited, it was adequate and the coffee good. The owner is another issue entirely. He did not want to return our passports when we checked in, but said they would be safer in the nook above the (generally unattended) small front desk. I had to be firm to get them back. He hovered in the breakfast room and the lobby and generally seemed to give guests conflicting information. We had planned to stay our second night in a different hotel, the Villa Lara, to enjoy a different view of the coast. On the morning of checkout, the owner was completely adamant that we could never get to the Villa Lara without a private car, it was on a cliff, impossible to reach, etc, etc. SInce we had booked a trip to Capri for the day and did not want to miss our departure, we agreed to stay at his hotel again that night. We cancelled the other hotel with difficulty--there was a problem with our using his phone system and no staff seemed to want to help (the assistant manager is his son)--so we used our mobile phone. Language difficulties ensued, but we believed we had successfully cancelled the Villa Lara and thoroughly enjoyed our trip to Capri. We stayed the night at the Bellevue and headed into Amalfi the next day. To our dismay, when I asked an English-speaking cab driver if he could take us to the Villa Lara so that we could see it and perhaps book it for our next visit to the area, he laughed and said it would take longer by car than by foot. Sure enough, following his directions, we walked up through the town and found the elevator to the Villa Lara.
Upon our return to Canada, we discovered that we had been charged for both hotels. E-mails requesting a refund and an apology went unanswered by the Hotel Bellevue. The Amalfi Coast contains many charming hotels. We strongly recommend against staying at the Hotel Bellevue while it is under its present ownership.

Room Tip: Do not recommended

Hotel is clean.
5 min walk from Amalfi but you need stamina as its a tricky walk along a busy road then plenty of steps.
Good spacious rooms with air conditioning.
Breakfast is Buffet with Excellant pot of coffee and pot of steamed milk!
Not enough info in room-only comments about not taking drinks and food to room.

We enjoyed our stay at the Hotel Bellevue Suites very much. The staff was very friendly. The rooms were cleaned and vacuumed every day. Breakfast was about the same every day, but what you got was really good and complete. The last day we even got a lift from the manager to the town centre. We will recommend this hotel to our friends and family.

We experienced a very clean hotel with nice spacy rooms. The owner instead, a complete control freak turns your stay in an unfriendly experience. He clearly shows you who's the boss, lets wait you in the lobby for 1 hour at the check-in. There are rules in the elevator, room, bathroom what you're not allowed to do. At breakfast (always the same), he controls the guest arrivals and points you where to sit. The hotel doesn't offer dinner but they can prepare you something for a "modest price". We experienced this with a plate of pasta, a bowl of soup and a mineral water for € 40.00!
It's time for him to retire, the rest of the people being under his arsch supervision.

Room Tip: Rooms at the back (no view) are quiet. Rooms with a view are also overhang the road.

We had a beautiful room with sea view. The large lounge again overlooking the sea was a pleasant area to sit in. The owners, father and son, were helpful. There was a strict rule forbidding to take any food or drink to the room, as the hotel wanted you to buy theirs.

The location was inconvenient as it involved a half-hour walk to Amalfi along the extremely narrow and busy road.
