We really enjoyed our stay here. The service was excellent, from the waiters at breakfast, which is served on a lovely terrace overlooking the sea, to the housekeeping staff who kept our room in pristine condition. Clean towels twice a day and clean sheets every day. We stayed in a standard room, overlooking the sea front, but we found the room spacious and airy with a lovely balcony to sit on and watch the world go by. Yes you could sometimes hear noise at night but as the hotel is situated on the front overlooking a bus stop you do expect this, and when the door to the balcony was closed it certainly cut out most of the noise and we never had any problems sleeping. The hotel is convenient to catch a bus or ferry from and because it is on the seafront there is no walking up hills to return to your hotel at the end of a long day. We would certainly returned to the hotel if we ever visit Amalfi again.

It is difficult write anything bad about our experience in the Hotel Residence because we really had a very good time here. We stayed 5 nights beginning of November.

The hotel is absolutely central, located at the main street which runs along the Amalfi coast. However, we had no problem with noise at all (the door to the balcony seemed pretty well insulated).

My first experience of the hotel was that it has a really nice smell. It is in an old villa renovated and furbish in a style and so tastefully, which made us walk down the stairs each time we were leaving our room just to have the experience of the interior.

We booked a superior room. It was clean, large and nicely furnished, which included romantic vintage pieces, too. The bed was comfortable. We had a small balcony and our room was see view. The bathroom is super clean, too, and it had a jacuzzi bath tub which we enjoyed a lot :)
The breakfast room is in a big, nice old room with renaissance columns, it also has a very pleasant terrace facing the see. The hotel has no restaurant, which was not a problem for us. They have a lounge area in the evening with nice old furniture in one part of the same room which is used for breakfast.

The only improvement we can recommend is more choice at breakfast of meat and cheese. Other comments describe cold scrambled eggs, but in our case the eggs were OK.

But what we enjoyed most are the people in the hotel. Our friend at the breakfast was very nice, very helpful with all our questions regarding restaurants, markets nearby and others, and we had usually had a nice conversation each morning. He also knew after the second morning what we like and brought it to our table.
The same is true for the reception, as well. They were very friendly and helpful.

To conclude, the hotel was hard to leave it :)

Superb location on the coast road in the center of Amalfi. Close to all of Amalfi's restaurants and scenic attractions. Excellent room size and well appointed. Room 16 looks right out on to the beach. Staff were really friendly & accommodating. Breakfast served on a nice balcony overlooking the sea. The balcony location also acts as the bar / lounge.

Room Tip: Request a sea view room. Quieter rooms are to the rear of the hotel.

Had occasion to stay here and liked it so much extended my visit. Exceedingly clean, renovated and shiny inside. Rooms are chic, very nice breakfast and location. Ignore comments about noise, it is located in central area but they have modern double paned windows that completely eliminated even a hint of noise. superb service and help from front desk & restaurant waiters, the best. Would return again in a heartbeat.

My husband and I spent a week in Room 18 in early October 2013. Our patio doors opened onto a tiny terrace, and we were fascinated by our daily views of Amalfi from sunrise till after sunset - we observed cars, buses, ferries, pedestrians, scooters, the central fountain, cafes, the ocean, the pier, the promenade, the restaurants on the beach, fireworks, a thunder and lightning show… it was am amazing location to people-watch! In spite of all the entertainment outside, we could close the wooden doors and the room was then very quiet!
Our room was also neat and clean with a large closet for storage, and the bathroom was quite big with railings to hang up our hand washing!
We enjoyed the helpful staff - in particular Vittorio at the front desk, and Antonio for cappuccinos at breakfast and for nightcaps on the terrace in the evenings!
It was a great location to explore the rest of the Amalfi Coast by bus and ferry, and there were many great restaurants in the area too.

My wife and I stayed here for 4 days at the end of October, we chose the Residence based mainly on Trip Advisor reviews, which are not totally accurate, so this is a " This is what you get" review. The Hotel is marketed as a 4 Star, but the local tourist office classify it as 3 Stars, which I agree with. The Hotel has a fantastic locations right in the port area, but with this location comes the noise from constant traffic which is very nearly 24/7, so if you are a light sleeper a sea view room is not for you. The Hotel has a very small reception area, no lounge area, no evening restaurant, no room facilities, well our Standard room had none, also Our room was disappointingly small when compared to the standard room they show on the Hotel website, I had to stay on the bed when my wife was sitting at the dressing table as not enough room to squeeze past, if you are stood at the basin in the bathroom with the door shut no one else could get in as door opens onto basin, very bad layout, but the room was very clean and I lost count the number of times they changed our towels, also they turn the beds down in the evening which is a nice touch. There are a number of other reviews that moan about the breakfast and the service at breakfast, to a point I agree, you do have to chase the waiters even for your first cup of coffee let alone a second cup, the hot food offered is the same each day and is always Luke warm , but plenty of cold meats cheese and croissants, so enough choice for everyone. Now to a big Moan, you have to hand your key in when leaving the Hotel, the key is then hung up on a board in full view of anyone passing the entrance, not a problem you may say , and I would agree if they manned the reception desk 24/7' We returned one evening to find nobody at reception and helped ourselves to our key, and we were not challenged which I find worrying. We found all the staff very polite and helpful, even the breakfast waiters once you had attracted their attention were polite and helpful. What makes this Hotel is its location, there are nicer Hotels with far better facilities in Amalfi than the Residence but they are not as close to the action, if you do not relish climbing loads of steps to get back to your Hotel each day/evening and do not mind constant street noise then the Residence would be a good choice, also it's lack of restaurant is no real problem with there being loads of choice within a 3 minute walk.

Room Tip: Room 18 is a SMALL Standard room,

Stayed 4 nights in hotel after a tour of Venice, Florence and Rome. Property is very nice with large common area rooms. Note, however, that the hotel is right in the middle of the town and there is a lot of traffic/people passing by, so it is not quiet during the day. At night (around 10 pm in October) traffic subsided and we did not have a problem with noise while sleeping, but the traffic is back by 7 am.

Our room faced sea and we really enjoyed the view, as well as people watching. The room was nice with high ceiling and sufficient space, but it lacked certain accoutrements usually found at hotels in this price range, such as glass ware, complimentary water, decent pillows. It may be because Amalfi is very much a beach town compared to these other cities, and you pay up for just about everything.

Breakfast on terrace is a great setting and wonderful way to start day. Staff is very attentive and makes as many cappuccinos as you can swallow. Food at b'fast is adequate, nothing special. (For some reason they serve eggs and bacon in a warming dish but do not use anything to keep food warm.)

Front desk is efficient and friendly, and very helpful with maps, dinner suggestions, directions, etc.
