“Disappointed”
Reviewed 5 July 2013

I was very excited to go to this hotel given its fantastic reviews however I was sorely disappointed.

The family spoke very little English and our attempts at Italian were awkward; eventually we stopped trying. They were very friendly and I do feel they tried but communication with anyone but the owner was virtually impossible.

The hotel is quite isolated and about a 20 minute walk along a narrow Italian road to the beach. It's about 15 minutes to the shops and any restaurants. It was pretty but nothing to write home about. Breakfast was repetitive and after 6 days we were very bored.

The most disappointing thing was the lack of transparity. It was 10 Euros a day to park at the hotel; but noone told this at the start. As it was secure we would probably have paid anyway but a pet hate of mine is surprise charges at the end. We also knocked a soapdish and broke it; I was being sick after eating some seafood. They charged 25 euros to replace this which was frankly extortionate.

For a night or two I think this hotel would be ok but for the money I would recommend travellers look for somewhere else to stay.

charming place, clean, friendly people that help us to get around. My wife have diabetes and she ask for special breakfast and they kindly go to the grocery shop and get us what we wanted. We get excellent tips for where to go and what to see around.

Room Tip: we leave the car at the hotel and use public bus to tour along the coast

The Minihotel Iris is an excellent B&B option for visitors to the Amalfi coast. Vincenzo and family are the perfect hosts and ensured our stay was a very pleasant experience. Their customer service is excellent and we really did feel like part of the family by the end of our trip. The rooms are nicely furnished and clean, and with all the necessary features e.g. air conditioning, internet wi-fi (small fee). Off street parking is also a nice feature. The outdoor terrace is a nice place to start the day with breakfast, looking out on hills behind Maiori that appear full with lemons. The breakfast is plentiful with options. The location of the hotel has its advantages and disadvantages. There is no view of the Bay of Salerno, and it's roughly a 15-20 minute walk from the hotel to downtown Maiori and the beach, which could be a problem with small children. We quickly figured out the local bus service (with Vincenzo's help) to make getting to and from the beach easier. But when you want to get away from the hustle and bustle of Maiori, and also see little of the backroads behind the town, then the Minihotel Iris is a good option. We would definitely stay there again and would recommend to anyone planning a trip to the beautiful Amalfi coast.

Vinnie and his family were more than accomodating, they have a very clean and tidy B&B and will go out of there way to make your stay as comfortable and pleasant as possible.

I recommend any body to stay with this B & B, it is a little way from the beach however we enjoyed the walk and the local pizzeria/restaurant owned and operated across the road from Minihotel Iris.

Thanks to Vinnie and his parents for a most enjoyable visit.

What a wonderful experience!!! What an awesome family!!! We had the best time in a very relaxed and friendly environment. Spotless rooms and outstanding customer service. We will never forget how Salvatore, Anna and Vincenzo treated (and spoiled) us and we will always reccomend this place to anyone we know!!! Grazie di Cuore!
