Tucked into a residential courtyard, this family-run hotel feels like you are miles away from the bustle of town instead of only a 2 minute stroll. Rooms are simple with ceramic tiled bathrooms and air-conditioning. There is an elevator and a real plus is the hotel’s own garage which will transfer your luggage to your room. Even if you are not a breakfast person, it is worth your while to wake up early and start your day on the elaborately frescoed dining room.
This waterfront hotel has a cool 1960s vibe. Make sure to book a room that offers views over the sea. The sun seeker is well catered for with a small deck next to the sea with sun loungers and a terrace on the 4th floor with sun loungers, umbrellas and a shower. In terms of conveniences, there is good air conditioning, WiFi, paid parking available and the hotel has an elevator. The on-site restaurant is certified gluten-free by the Italian Celiac Association.
This quaint hotel is well located near Amalfi’s main beach and cathedral. The structure dates back to the 1200s so keep that in mind if you love all the mod cons. That said, the air conditioning is efficient and the WiFi strong. The rooms are a little on the small side, but the sea facing rooms have balconies and are decorated with ceramic tiles and beautiful carved and painted beds.
Hotel Marina Rivera has been welcoming travelers since the historic days of the Grand Tour. The gorgeous rooftop pool and lounge area are just the beginning at this stylish hotel near both the beach and Amalfi’s main sites. Rooms evoke Hollywood glamour and are decorated in bold colors and handprinted tiles, all of them with sea views. There are plenty of small touches like beach towels and fresh fruit served poolside every afternoon. The hotel has 2 bars and runs the restaurant next door.
Relax in your very own Amalfi nest, (nido means nest in Italian) just half a mile from town. Il Nido has two small parking lots where you can leave your car and enjoy your private terrace that overlooks the sea below. Rooms are simple and a little old fashioned, but spotlessly clean. Buffet breakfast is served every morning with a range of cold meats, cheese, pastries and fresh fruit.
The hamlet of Pogerola is less than 4 miles uphill from Amalfi but might as well be a different world. You will be enchanted by the village feel and sweeping views that surround Villa Maria. The B & B echoes this simple charm with modern furnishings in soft colors, wood beamed ceilings and handcrafted majolica tile floors. This is the perfect base for hiking enthusiasts to explore the nearby “Valle delle Ferriere” and Path of the Gods.
