“Brilliant Friendly hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 May 2012

We booked their last available room after reading reviews on trip advisor and weren't disappointed. The food and service is excellent. The rooms are quite basic, but comfortable.They can also arrange hikes and anything else you fancy. We hiked into Amalfi and they arranged for a car to meet us with our bags..Great service!

Room Tip: Try and get a room that doesn't face the road. There is some traffic noise in the mornings.

My wife and I had a wonderful stay at the Hotel Parsifal. Our room with a balcony had a view of the Coast which was as stunning as any place in Ravello. Dinner at the hotel restaurant was quiet and relaxed with wonderful preparation. We also were grateful for all of things that Antonio did for us -- even arranging to get a flat tire repaired.

Room Tip: Room with a balcony and a view of the coast.

Having visited both Amalfi and Positano, we were relieved to have chosen to spend most of our Amalfi Coast holiday in Ravello – and even more pleased to have chosen Hotel Parsifal. Antonio, Leonardo, Rafael and Luciano made our four days feel just like home. We initially chose room 23, which is the one directly underneath the restaurant terrace with the iconic covered arch balcony and wonderful views. We liked this room even though it is a bit tired and small. After 2 nights we were offered room 29 in the refurbished section across the courtyard, and we loved it – large and airy with a big bathroom, proper shower, and tastefully decorated in handpainted red and blue ceramic tile.

But really, it wasn’t the rooms that made our stay so enjoyable – it was the great hospitality of Antonio and his brethren. Some days we had lunch on the terrace, with its wonderful views across the bay, some nights we stayed in watching football on SKY, and the rest of the time we spent exploring the pretty town. The other big name hotels on this street include the Caruso (Orient Express), Palazzo Sasso, and Palumbo – all with much the same aspect but costing around 4 times what an equally intimate and exclusive experience does at Parsifal (although admittedly not as posh).

Lunch on the terrace was always great (see photos); we tried the marinated anchovies, caprese salad, wild boar ham, spaghetti bolognese, veal in lemon sauce (multiple times) - and all were excellent. Even better with great wine, coffee, limoncello, and a side of Rafael’s witty banter. The only blip was a dinner at the restaurant – we both ordered steaks and they weren’t great. Plus, although fine for breakfast with the sun streaming in through the windows, the restaurant itself is not very pretty and feels a bit dingy in the evening. The terrace is much nicer for dining…

If you're staying on the Amalfi Coast, my advice is to base yourself here, get Antonio to hook you up with the effusive and knowledgeable Salvatore from Ravello Taxi for your Pompeii trip and airport transfers, have lunch at Villa Cimbrone - and for the rest of the time stay put here. Great place + great people = great holiday....

Room Tip: Go for either Room 23 if you want the best balcony and rustic setting, or Room 29 for a much better...

The superlative service and attention to detail, especially from Antonio, made a last-minute 24 hour trip to Ravello a highlight from the whole holiday. Not only does it represent relative good value, it is a superlative hotel and restaurant in its own right, and the view is absolutely incredible.

I recently stayed at Hotel Parsifal with my 8 month old daughter. Antonio was incredibly accommodating - I requested many changes of room/dates, etc and nothing was too much trouble. We received such a warm welcome on arrival, and Antonio went out of his way to make our stay as comfortable as possible. I ordered room service from the restaurant the first night and the food was absolutely delicious. The pastries at breakfast were also beautiful, not to mention the stunning views. The hotel is located very close to the main square. The decor of the room was fairly standard, but it was immaculately maintained and very clean. Excellent value for money.

After two weeks of site seeing and travel I spent 3 nights with Tony, Raff and Leo, the brothers who run this small but extremely welcoming hotel. My room was large, with a balcony with magnificent views across the bay and to Minori. The building may be a 13th century convent, but the facilities are modern and first class. Remarkably for such a small operation the restaurant has a well deserved reputation for excellence, and this was proved to be correct.

I cannot recommend this hotel more highly. Quality, location, views, value for money and especially service all great. Whether reading in the garden, taking a quite easy walk to Villa Rufolo or Villa Cimbrone, or just having a drink with other guests made this a truely relaxing end to my trip.

We had the pleasure of staying at the Parsifal hotel for three nights in April. This hotel is uniquely positioned on the side of the mountain and overlooks the sea. The rooms are small but visitors are compensated by the many other features of the hotel. For two nights we had the superb good fortune to have a room with a small balcony with an amazing view, We wanted to walk/hike in the area and Antonio was able to provide us with information on two memorable hikes. Antonio and his staff are fabulous hosts.

Room Tip: Try to book a room with a balcony overlooking the sea.
