“Words cannot describe what a pleasure it was to stay here”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 October 2013

My husband and I arrived at Hotel Pellegrino after a long and exhausting journey from Rome. We booked this hotel based on all of the positive reviews other travelers gave, and all of the praise was absolutely true. When we arrived, our hosts made us feel so welcome. Our room was wonderful and spacious, and the view of the Amalfi Coast from our balcony was spectacular! We were invited to enjoy a welcome drink (aka an entire bottle of wine!) on the 3rd floor when we were settled into our room.

The food here was among the very best we had in all 11 days we were in Italy. Seafood was a big thing in this part of Italy, and since we are from the middle of the United States, fresh seafood is always a delicious treat. Luigi does seafood extremely well, and the Swordfish, octopus salad, and oysters were among our favorites. The cakes and crostata that are prepared daily....TO DIE FOR! Even breakfast, which is not a typical Italian meal, and consisted of Nutella and bread when in Rome, was executed to perfection. We were brought wonderful fresh squeezed juice, fresh fruit, bread, homemade fruit spreads, yogurt, made-to-order cappicino and espresso, and if that isn't enough, "bacon and eggs" if you wanted them. My husband and I loved the way that Luigi prepared scrambled eggs with proscuitto, bruschetta, aged cheese, and olives so much we have been recreating and eating it for breakfast since being home in the States.

Nothing is too much to ask of the Pellegrinos when it comes to getting around and suggestions for meals and activities. One day, we asked how to get to the beach, and Luigi noticed we did not have any beach towels. He found some extra towels for us and then drove us to the area where you begin the gorgeous hike down to the beach. He even offered to come and pick us up when we were finished there.

No place we have been has ever been so wonderful for the price. We want to come back to the Amalfi Coast with our families, and if we do, we will not hesitate to stay here again. The Pellegrinos will truly treat you like family when you stay with them. That is such a wonderful feeling when you are in a strange new place and are far from your own family.

Our host was amazing, and his family could not do more to make us feel like we were staying in their home. Beautifully cooked meals and genuine people. Rooms were spotless, great location. Would highly recommend. Also staying in Praiano is much more peaceful than neighbouring Almalfi or Positano.

Room Tip: Ask for room 29 with the beautifully renovated huge bathroom.

A group of 6 of us stayed at the Hotel Pellegrino for four days. Our host, Luigi and his family made us all feel like family. Although it is a small hotel, it had everything and more you could ask for. The included breakfast was outstanding (and seemed never ending), and the dinners were first class. Located between Amalfi and Positano, it is a great location for visiting both for day trips. The 20 minute walk into the town of Praiano was easy and well worth it. You'll find good shopping for food and wine. The local cafe was a great place to stop at for a glass of wine on the outdoor terrace. If you're up for the hike, the walk to the local beach called One Fire Beach Club is well worth it. The staff, the music and the Italian beer was a real treat, not to mention the fantastic views. All-in-all, the Hotel Pellegrino was a real gem of a find. I highly recommend it if your planning on a trip to the coast.

I promised myself I would write a review the minute I got home - but life got busy and here I am 2 weeks later dreaming of a chilled white wine on the balcony of Hotel Pellegrino watching the sun go down. This truly is one of the best places I have stayed on vacation.
Firstly, Praiano is the pick of the Amalfi Coast. It's peaceful, quaint, hidden away from the crowds and the perfect base for day trips to Ravello, Amalif, Capri and Positano. The restaurants (all within walking distance of Hotel Pellegrino) are some of the best we visited and OneFire Beach Club is a must for lying on a deck chair beside the ocean, listening to great music and being served Aperol Spritz by the entertaining bar host.
And then there's Luigi and his family, who from the moment we arrived, made us feel like one of them! The rooms are simple yet clean and comfortable but it is the service that you simply can't get anywhere else. From the welcome drinks and snacks, the home-made cake, the carefully picked Italian wines, the complimentary appetisers at dinner and the amazing breakfast spread - to the travel tips, transfers, general knowledge and just genuine hospitality. Luigi and Hotel Pellegrino made our trip one of the best we've ever had so you'd be crazy not to book here.

Let me start by informing potential travelers not to get duped into staying within the main towns like Positano or Amalfi. The reason I say this is because, while being both being beautiful towns, they are small towns and you are going to want to travel along the Amalfi coast in both directions and staying within these towns make that travel difficult. If instead you stay along the primary road, like where Pellegrino is located, you can jump right on the bus, or your car or scooter, and easily travel to your town of choice for the day, instead of first having to take a 30 minute hike through tiny, crowded streets on a steep incline. These walks are excellent when your visiting the towns and meandering through them, but you don't want it to be part of your daily two-way travels, believe me.
Pellegrino is located on the main road just outside of Praiano which has many good restaurants (we loved La Brace) and a fantastic beach. Our hosts, Luigi & Angela, were very helpful in dropping us off at restaurants in Praiano and the beach access entrance as part of our accommodations. The hotel is centrally located so you can quite easily travel to Amalfi, Positano, Sorrento, Capri, Pompeii, etc. Luigi & Angela provided us with maps and bus tickets (bus stop is right outside the hotel and is about every 30 mins) which made each days travels effortless.
Luigi, Angela, Sandra, & Alicia all were excellent hosts and made us feel very welcome and comfortable. The meals we had at the hotel (a fantastic breakfast is included) we all amazing - we had 5 dinners there out of our 9 total nights.
Finally, we felt like the overall value of our trip was excellent, especially considering that we were on the Amalfi coast. The total cost of the accommodations, the breakfasts, the amazing 4-5 course dinners, and the wine was extremely fair (less than we anticipated).
One last comment, the hotel is impeccably well maintained and clean.
One of the best, if not the best, vacations we have had. J&H

Room Tip: Go for value, you won't be in your room very much.

Our stay here was fabulous. Given we were here in November 2012 (and we have been very slow to write this review) and the holiday season had slowed right down, Luigi was very helpful in driving us to different restaurants of an evening or places of interest during the day. Nothing was too much trouble: tea to our room in the afternoon, tickets for the bus if we needed it.

On the night we arrived, after travelling all day, we were shown to our clean and spacious room and then asked if we would like a glass of wine and something to eat. Luigi is a fabulous host and we would gladly stay here again. The restaurant was closed for evening meals while we were there but the breakfasts were the best we had in Italy, very generous servings of lovely fresh food.

The room has a great outlook over Praiano, and a large balcony to sit and enjoy it!

We have had the exquisite pleasure of staying with Luigi and his beautiful family for the last five nights. We have travelled extensively in many countries and stayed at some very beautiful hotels, however, none like this. As I write; I sit on the balcony of the third floor overlooking the Amalfi coast, drinking beautiful local wines recommended by Luigi and listening to Italian classics. Nothing is too much trouble for the family who run this family owned hotel, which has the feel of an intimate BnB. The rooms are very well appointed, spotlessly clean and enjoy their own private balcony. Remember, this is Italy so most accommodation is in older buildings. The charm is in how well these buildings are kept true to their original form, whilst ensuring the important items that modern travellers require are provided. This is extraordinarily well managed at Hotel Pellegrino. Luigi will ensure that anything you wish to do whilst you are here can be achieved! When was the last time you stayed somewhere and upon enquiring about a clothes airer to dry some washing, were told; "just give your washing to me " and then return the next day to find it ironed and folded in the wardrobe in your room? This was a first for us! NOW.......the food! It is wonderful. I guarantee you will not have had breakfasts as fresh or delicious as these and don't get me started on the cake....worry about your diet when you get home! Thank you to the whole family for a wonderful stay, we will definitely be back! Chris and Sam Lombardo, Australia.
