The parking was a bit of an issue.. It's 20 euro, and you basically
pay someone to park it somewhere else for you. I'm not sure if its
garaged, because we never saw it.
When we got to the entrance of the Amalfi town centre, a stranger said "Hotel Amalfi, Hotel Amalfi" then jumped in our car and directed us to go up. Then when we got off at our stop, another man stopped us and asked for the key. We're in ITALY! How can we simply trust someone who can't communicate to us or introduce themselves? After a while, he showed the booking information on his phone..
It's a short walk to the town centre and it is a bit of a hike to get up to the top, but not much of a problem. There are no views of the water (hence the pictures are misleading).
Breakfast was extremely basic, croissants, some stale bread and jam. orange juice was not fresh, but cordial.
Overall it was overpriced. The only reason I booked it was because of the good reviews and I thought there was a view of the city from above.
The hotel was indeed clean, modern, overall a comfortable stay.
I left my passport in the room and realised this when I checked in at Sorrento. It was 8pm at that time, as I was going to Capri the day after I asked if I could pick up my passport that night, which the host demanded no. He doesn't speak good english, but after a while we came to an agreement to meet in 1 hour at 9pm. We were speeding along the coast to make it there by 9, If you have driven between Amalfi and Sorrento you will know it takes 80-90 minutes driving at a normal pace. After I arrived, he greeted me in the town centre with it, which was nice.
