The view from the inner courtyard is stunning and probably similar to the much pricier nearby luxury Hotel Caruso. It's a family run hotel which the warm and helpful service also reflects.
The hotels's restaurant has the same magnificent view as the courtyard and serves fresh and local dishes. Highly recommended, if not only, for the view.
Beware that free parking nearby is close to impossible so you are stuck with the €18 a day valet parking.
Our room was fairly basic, but very clean. However, the room had no AC which was somewhat a drawback in hot July. The staff had tried to mitigate this by installing two fans, but they were noisy while trying to sleep. Nor did the rooms have Wi-Fi, which was only available in the courtyard.
Installing AC and improving the Wi-Fi would greatly increase the experience.
All in all, this hotel comes recommended as a less expensive alternative to the general high price ranges in Ravello.
