Residenza del Duca Hotel
Ranked #15 of 29 Hotels in Amalfi
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 9 May 2009

The Amalfi coast is stunning and Amalfi is a superb place to situate yourself as it is lovely, not too overrun with tourists and possess all the links (buses and ferries) you need to get to other villages, Pompei and Capri. The coastal towns are beautifully tucked into the nooks between hills and rise up the cliffs from the sea, therefore the terrain is all about stairs. The Residenza del Duca is located near the main square of Amalfi town, up some stairs (don't let that deter you, there are people who will help) and offers a charming and helpful staff. The hotel is small and very pretty and beautifully updated. The owner and his son and daughter are gracious and accommodating. The service is excellent.
I recommend walking to gorgeous Ravello which is up from the next town east, Atrani, the place of departure. At least a day trip to the island of Capri, and Positano should be on your itinerary. There are many opportunities for hiking to nearby villages and specific well worn hikes like the breathtaking Path of the Gods hike between Praino and Positano. Also, don't miss the Duomo in Amalfi. Go inside as the convent, chapel and crypt are at least if not more interesting than the cathedral itself. Lastly, go behind the obvious in Amalfi (and other towns). Explore the passageways and staircases that lace around behind the main thoroughfares...that's where the local life and the best restaurants are. A trip to Salerno and Pompei are also recommended.

I booked the Residenza after reading reviews on the internet - but - apart from being delighted with our room and the staff, there was an unexpected extra that really made our holiday special. Our receptionist recommended that we see the 'real' Amalfi by walking in its surrounding hills - our guide was Vincenzo. Weather had been very changeable but fortunately was excellent on our chosen walking day. We certainly saw sights we would never otherwise have seen, plus enjoying the knowledge and charm of this very attentive and considerate young man. Thank you, we'll be back!

With a helpful staff, great breakfast and clean, comfortable rooms, Residenza del Duca is a wonderful, affordable option in Amalfi. The most remarkable feature was the bathroom, which was quite large for Europe. The shower had great water pressure and multiple shower heads that we really appreciated since the weather was on the cold side in March. We will certainly stay there again if we have the opportunity. For more about our trip to the Amalfi coast: http://justanothertravelblog.blogspot.com/search/label/Italy

In June of 2008, my husband and I stayed at the Residenza del Duca and it turned out to be the most beautiful experience and memory that we brought back with us from Italy.. Everything about the hotel was beautiful--the lobby, the room, the bath and the belcony with it's view. The staff, too, was wonderful! They were kind, friendly, helpful and made our stay with them the best experience we have ever had at any hotel. They did a beautiflul job in decorating, food, and service. Staying there gave us a feeling of actualy being in a home in Italy. I really can't say enough good things about it. It was what we were looking for in Italy and will always remain the highlight of our 2 week trip.
The 70 steps to the hotel were really not bad and worth the climb and we are in our 60's, so I would recommend this very special hotel to anyone.
Thank you .

We just got back from two days in amalfi. We stayed two nights here. We emailed back and forth to set up the reservations and everything was just as described. They set up the transfer and that was handled very well. We loved our stay. The room was great. Very clean. Great breakfast. We were able to sit on the balcony one morning and have a great start to the day. They were very helpfull with buses and how to get around. I can not say enough good things about it.

During our 4 weeks in Italy, Residence Del Duca was the stand-out accommodation. Daniela, Andreas and their dad Gerardo were welcoming and helpful and the room we occupied for 9 nights was a real delight. Location and outlook were terrific, and the 80 steps worth every breath! (see YouTube for the climb). Our room was immaculately presented, tastefully decorated with a spacious ensuite and multi-function massage shower - great after a day's walking. A bonus was the large terrace with its comfy table and chairs and sun lounges which we made full use of. All this over-looked the Piazza dei Dogi and Cathedral spire with ocean glimpses to the south-west. The majestic Torre dello Ziro is also clearly visible. The main street, bus stop and beach are all very close to the hotel.

A vase of Asian lillies appeared in our room one day, after Daniela had been to the market and this was typical of the hospitality. We loved the freshly brewed coffee at breakfast and freshly picked tomatoes and greens appeared one morning from the dad's own garden.

Residence del Duca is a wonderful boutique hotel in a fascinating area of Italy.

Booked this hotel in Feb/March for 2 rooms for 3 nights.
This was done directly with Daniela over 4 e-mails back and forth. Rooms were confirmed and credit card details given for guarantee.
On arrival we were told of "small problem", 1 Room only tonight but there will be 2 rooms for the following nights.
As a relatively experienced traveller i can think of only 1 reason for this, Greed (trying to maximise room rental) and in turn bumping a booking in the hope that they will go to another hotel for 1 night and then come back the following.)
Which Daniela, to her credit did suggest.
We, as a group decided this was not good enough, so we booked into another hotel for all 3 nights.
Did not actually stay here so i can not comment on the accommodation side of things.
But we were extremely disappointed with the lack of professionalism.
