“Nice Hotel with lovely pool!”
Reviewed 21 July 2009

I stayed at the Giordano Hotel, Ravello, Italy for four nights whilst visiting Ravello to attend my friends wedding. On reading previous reviews of this hotel prior to my departure I was feeling slightly anxious as to what would await us when we arrived at this hotel however I was pleasantly surprised!
The Hotel is very well located to the towns main square. Staff were friendly and polite. Our Room (No. 43) had a beautiful view of the pool from the balcony, was clean and of a reasonable size although pretty basic and the bed/ pillows were fairly hard. Bathroom was well-equipped with a very powerful shower. There wasn't a lot of cupboards/ draw space to unpack are belongings into but it was manageable. The main disappointment was the fridge in the room as although it appeared to be "on" ... it wasn't cold!
The best thing about this hotel is definitely the pool. This hotel is one of very few in the area actually with a pool so guests from other hotels tend to use it too (supposedly at a charge of 10 Euros per person per day) The surrounding pool area was well maintained and there were plenty of sun-beds. The pool was unheated (however as it was so hot during our trip it was nice to cool off in) so this may be a problem if visiting during cooler months as it may make it unusable for the less brave.
Stay at this hotel included a continental breakfast served from 8 till 10 a.m. This was the only food I sampled at hotel which was nice. Drinks however were expensive compared to outside hotel prices.
Overall I found this to be a charming hotel, well-located, typical of the area and would recommend it to others. It was pretty basic for a 3* hotel and a little on the expensive side however the pool was a great bonus and very well used during my trip so I suppose thats why they can ask the room rates per night they do.

Selected as part of our walking tour, but it seems about the only hotel in Revello which manages to have almost no view of the surrounding hills or the sea. The room was extremely basic, the small wardrobe had no hanging rail and seemed full with 3 items in it. There were no drawers or shelves for our clothes, so we couldn't unpack properly. The view from the window included the pool, and other village properties, but was not what we expected from the location. Other aspects of the room were poor: basin plug didn't hold water, one balcony door would not open, the beds were rather hard. Altogether not what we expected from a hotel at this price level.

  • Liked — quiet location, I suppose
  • Disliked — facilities of the room

Good central spot in Ravello with free parking.
Average rooms, though clean.
Pool is completely unheated so even at the end of the summer it was usable only by kids and very brave adults which was a shame.

The room was cold, damp and uncomfortable. The bed was awful, the pillows as hard as bricks and all furnture and fittings were so old. No chair or anything comfortable to sit on and relax. The shower ran hot and cold and the lighting in both the bathroom and bedroom was dim and miserable.
The room had a lovely (shared) terrace with an outstanding view.
Breakfast was terrible and on for a very short time (7-9.30) - the bar at the pool stopped serving any kind of food around 2pm - all very inconvenient especially for a group of friends staying for a wedding!!
The swimming pool at the hotel is lovely, however for guests not staying in the hotel there is a €10 charge per day (???) and pool towels are charged to guests of the hotel at €1 a day!! Sunbeds around the pool are highly uncomfortable.
All in all staying in a beautiful place like Ravello for my best friends wedding was spoilt by staying in such an uncomfortable and unjustifiably expensive hotel - I wouldnt recommend this hotel to anyone.

Stayed here for four nights to attend our son's wedding at the Vila Eva (owned by the same group as the Giordano and Vila Maria).

We found the hotel to be charming and the staff to be first class, always cheerful, keen to help and freindly. The hotel was very clean in all areas. The rooms were well serviced every day and the pool area was similarly well presented and cared for.

Breakfast, served on the pool terrace, was very good with fresh fruit, bread rolls and great coffee.

The restaurant at the Vila Eva, the Giordano's sister hotel, was exceptional. Fantastic terrace looking down towards Amalfi and the best of Italian food and wine served by a very freindly and efficient staff. Highly recommended.

We look forward to our next visit to Ravello and will certainly stay here again.

Such a beautiful hotel and such a fabulous location, with a glorious pool, but the holiday was ruined by faulty airconditioning which they kept saying was fixed and which was useless. We couldnt leave the doors open at night as there was a path at the end of our patios and, despite booking a year in advance, our young children were in rooms three doors down from us, so that was a concern. Breakfast is included and we did get fruit salad one day and very good coffee, but cheap shop cakes and dry biscuits were the norm. Shame really, attention to detail like that would make all the difference

Not luxurious in the traditional sense of the word, but very nice and atmospheric. Lovely pool, too, and a great location right in the town centre.
