Hotel Residence Amalfi
Hotel Residence Amalfi is centrally located in Amalfi town. It is directly opposite the beach, and the pier where the ferries depart to Capri, Positano, Naples, etc. And just a few meters away from the main square (Piazza Duomo) with access to a multitude of restaurants, shops, and bars. The bus stop is also in the immediate vicinity and will take you to other towns along the Amalfi coast.
Hotel Residence Amalfi has twenty-seven rooms. The hotel was fully renovated four years ago, and is fully sound proof. Windows have shutters on so that helps block out the noise. The decor of the communal areas are very interesting and eclectic. The lounge area is beautifully decorated and very peaceful. The marble staircase is absolutely stunning. All rooms feature a balcony or terrace, that overlooks the sea or on the Piazza Duomo. They are all equipped with a satellite LCD TV, safe, minibar, direct telephone and a hairdryer. Fresh towels are given twice a day, and clean sheets every day. Complimentary Wi-Fi throughout the hotel.
The staff in the hotel are courteous and speak English very well. Very helpful with providing directions, tips for local excursions.
Breakfast is plentiful with lots to choose from cakes, pastries, fruits. Fresh breads, meats and assorted cheese. Also bacon, and eggs made to order. And the terrace overlooking the water is a delightful place to start the day discussing your plans. The kitchen staff are exceptionally friendly and helpful.
Hotel Residence Amalfi does not have a restaurant for lunch or dinner (only breakfast). But the front desk will be more than happy to recommend and book a local restaurant for you.
I recommend drinks on the hotel terrace as the best way to start your evening. The bar staff are super friendly, and they make fabulous cocktails. Prices are reasonable for a hotel, and all drinks are served with tasty nibbles.
Additionally, street side bedrooms have fantastic views of the coast and Mediterranean Sea.
Hotel Residence Amalfi doesn't have a parking lot on the premises. The hotel does offer a discount voucher for the nearest parking lot. You need to drop off your luggage first. The front desk will then give you the voucher so you can park your car at the garage.
Room Tip: Ask for a bedroom that comes with a balcony overlooking the sea.
