Hotel Dei Cavalieri Amalfi
Hotel Dei Cavalieri Amalfi is a great location with views overlooking the deep blue sea and along the coast. Situated up the hill from the town. It's about a fifteen minute walk from the city center of Amalfi. The walk is along the busy road for most of the way. So watch out for the traffic! It might be difficult for anyone with limited mobility. No sidewalks and the road is very narrow. Going down is good, but it's all up hill on the way back. The hotel offers a free shuttle service (stops at 5 p.m) that will drop you off in the town square. There is a SITA bus stop right outside the hotel, and SITA bus tickets can be purchased at most bars along the route.
Hotel Dei Cavalieri Amalfi features forty-seven rooms. They offer four different types to choose from (quadruple, triple, twin, double and single). Most of them have a sea view balcony that overlooks the Mediterranean sea, or the colorful lush garden. All rooms come with a TV, air conditioning and private bathroom. Fresh towels, rooms are cleaned each day to a high order. Free Wi-Fi is only available in the lobby, and not in your room.
The staff are wonderful and the atmosphere is truly amazing. Communal areas are enriched by beautiful paintings, wood sculptures, amazing artworks and antique furnishings. You will find the staff to be extremely friendly and hospitable. Also very helpful by giving a lot of information about excursions in the area, sights to see and transport along the coast if needed. They speak English very well, which is a big bonus.
Breakfast is very generous and good quality food. It's the typical Italian fare of fresh rolls, cheese, cold cuts. It also includes fruit, yogurt and sweet cakes with great coffee and juices.
There is a fantastic beach just a few minutes walk away from hotel. You need to head uphill and down a lot of steps (over 450) to the beach.
Free parking on site, a luxury in Italy. The elevator at the hotel is very small, but reliable.
Hotel Dei Cavalieri Amalfi doesn't have a pool on the premises. However, there's a pool affiliated with the hotel. It is about ten minute drive away, and you have to pay for it (10 euro per day).
There is a sundeck (with sun loungers) on the forth floor, which has amazing views of the ocean and is very relaxing.
Room Tip: If possible, book a room with a balcony and sea view, as it is absolutely stunning.
