“Staff are Rude”
Reviewed 3 September 2012 via mobile

I am not sure why the good ratings. Yes the hotel is ok not that great for the price. However I have never meet more arrogant staff in all my years of travelling. If you want to spoil your trip to the Amalfi coast then stay here. Other wise I strongly suggest you pick somewhere else. It was like we were working for them. Very rude and unhelpful I would expect more from a two star hotel

Charming building, location, friendly and helpful staff, cleanliness, great breakfast on the terrace with amazing views, balconies in every room - all of this could not be better. Close to absolutely everything and a discount on the better beach across the street. Yes, it could be a bit too hot for people who are used to cooler temperatures inside, but we were comfortable

Had a wonderful stay at this hotel. Location - can't be better across from the beach, the bus terminal and ferry service. Once you close the windows it is silent in the room. Good breakfast in a beautiful terrace, dont forget to ask for cappucino. Friendly staff. only complaint our Air condition was far from US standards, but it was 40 c or 100 F outside.

Room Tip: ask for water view.

I've been there as a gift, parked in the 'Luna Rossa' underground parking, gone by feet to the center of Amalfi via a 100 m tunnel.
Wonderful old style palace in front of the sea and two steps from the central piazza of Amalfi, exceptional service, both professional and empathic, rooms with high ceilings, air conditioned, comfortable beds and bathrooms decorated with typical local pottery.

Room Tip: Rooms on the right side (watching the sea) have both shadow and panoramas from the balcony

I have been to Hotel Residence in July for a week for my best friend"s wedding in Amalfi. I have found the hotel through Tripadvisor anf Residence turned out to be one of the most beautiful place I have ever stayed. It's a 18th century palazzo converted into a hotel in 1950"s and renovated in 2010. It is perfectly situated next to Amalfi port and beaches with magnificent views of the sea and. I have stayed in a room with an outstanding frescoed ceiling with a very nice balcony. Breakfast and evening drinks at the terrace overlooking to Mediterraneo is so lovely. One can make this hotel a focal point and travel to Positano, Atrani and Ravello from here. When you step out of your room you meet lovely chandeliers, statues and artefacts of the palazzo. The staff is very helpful. I"m looking forward for my next trip and stay in room 4 once again! It has great atmosphere both for couples and families and solo travellers.

Room Tip: room 4 is nice and room 7 has a jacuzzi!

we have just returned from brilliant week in Amalfi- the hotel was clean and modern inside despite being a lovely old building. staff were friendly and helpful, buffet breakfast that was included was an excellent start to the day. it is ideally situated near buses, the old town and ferries, yet with the windows closed we were not disturbed by noise. we had excellent trips out to pompeii, versuvus, ravello. other beaches were just short and cheap (2euro) bus trip away. would reccomend

Room Tip: we had standard room which had balcony and overlooked the sea

Perfect situated in the middle of Amalfi City. Close to everything; bus, restaurants, boats, shopping, beach. Breakfast at the terrace overlooking the Mediterranean Sea. Nice to sit here with a book in the afternoon too. Very close to the little beach. Breakfast was ok, but I would recommend to order coffee from the staff. The room was clean and nicely renovated. The aircon had a short breakdown but it was fixed shortly after informing the reception. Internet free and works perfectly. Helpful and friendly staff. I spend some nice days here and would not hesitate to book here again. If you have a sleeping problem because of noise bring silicone ear plugs..

Room Tip: Ask for sea view. There will be more noise from the street but on the other side of the building you...
