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.

Hotel Lidomare | oz avraham

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.
