Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Bonadies Ravello
Excellent quality and value for money!
The hotel Bonadies is the perfect choice for a stay in Ravello, it is a 4 star hotel offering 4 star quality and service at 3 star prices! Very good value for money, the management is also excellent, always trying to accomodate any requests you may have. I higly recommend it for a high quality stay in Ravello at an affordable price.
A wonderful spot
Mom and I arrived at Bonadies last week, after a long driving from Rome. It seemed to drive to the end of the world as it was wind and rainy not the best time for two womans alone. After a short round in the town, we finnally found a place that looked nice to us. To tell the true we were still thinking of bad impressions in other places and we were very suspectus. Once inside, we met the proprietor and immediately felt safe and at Home. We got a very spacious room with a lovely terrace (well we could not open till the day after as it was still terrible winding) overlooking the coast line. As we were not prepared to go anywhere that night, we had dinner at their restaurant (excellent). Afterthat we started talking with the owner lady and she invited us to have a drink at the family table. The day after we got a room service breakfast as a courtesy and we enjoyed it on our terrace overlooking the ocean. Well a splendid impression of what a family management is. The Hotel is very impressive, with wonderfull interiors and splendid antiques. What impressed us is that new colours and antiques are so well mixed that you don't see the difference. Also, it seems to feel a special atmosphere once inside, something that you will not easily forget. My regret...our staying there were only for two nights....
Our late honeymoon in Ravello
We were really surprised to find a new family at Hotel Bonadies. We were there for our late honeymood and I decided to impress my lovely wife with a very small and suggestive reconfirmation of our love in the Cathedral of Ravello. Mr Andrea Carrano helped me to get in touch with the priest and organized for the Mass. Also he arranged for a 2 of us wedding reception in their restaurant. If was a great day, and we had lovely days in that wonderful House. We wish you all could visit this place and enjoy that superb dinner.
I can't say enough good things about the Hotel Bonadies. My wife and I stayed there for two days, but wish it could have been for two weeks! Our room was attractive, spacious, spotless, and very comfortable. Large glass doors gave access to a small, covered, private porch with table and chairs, which, in turn, stepped down to a large rooftop terrace with lounge chairs for relaxing and enjoying magnificent views of the Amalfi Coast and the Gulf of Salerno.
Even more delightful than the beautiful hotel itself was the wonderful staff. From the reception desk, to house-keeping, to the restaurant, every staff member was friendly, courteous, and helpful. They were attentive to my request for a bed with very firm mattress, and when my wife lost her passport, they were most kind and patient in helping us to resolve the matter.
The breakfasts were bountiful, with not only breads and cereals, but yogurts, cold cuts, and cheeses as well. The evening meal that was part of our half-board package was also quite good, and the elegant dinning room has a superb view of the Amalfi Coast.
We can hardly wait for an opportunity to return to this jewel of a hotel in such a beautiful town as Ravello.
Our recent visit
Hello to everyone at hotel Bonadies
What to say...Bonadies is just wonderfull, and quite impossible to forget. We could not get rooms with sea view, but the lady at the reception explained that from that side we could enjoy the most romantic sunset of the world...that's true, and anyway we could enjoy the sea from all the restaurant, swimmingpool and roofterrace wher we used to spend the afternoon drinking the special Bonadies' wine. Wonderfull is not enought to explain the feelings that you can get here. Just try onec, and will always miss the atmosphere.

Hotel Bonadies - Citalia customer service
This is a warning to anyone thinking of using Citalia Uk to book a room at the Bonadies.
I have no problem with the hotel, the rooms are fine, the food is excellent. We just had a rotten experience with Citalia who cocked up the booking. Citalia's customer service is disgraceful and they were not interested in sorting out the mess they had put us in. In effect we were coerced into accepting rooms at a lower standard than we we had paid for. Take my advice, if you are going to use Bonadies, book with them direct. Do not use Citalia UK - they are crap.
Thank you to all the staff and family for an enyojable stay in very pleasant surronding: We cannot forget the food, room, clearliness of the hotel Bonadies and friendliness of the staff. Thank you once again, we will be back soon. M & L
Ravello's Best Kept Secret
Charming hotel...great rates...brand new swimming pool...scenic dining...and a few rooms with air conditioners. The warmth of the owner, Andrea Carrano, and his family make all the difference.
We have just returned from a ten day holiday in Ravello. We stayed at the hotel Bonadies which has a 4 star rating it has no air conditioning and at 33 degrees you need it. The cleanliness of the hotel and the service was excellent, but the food basic and cheap to provide this is not reflected in the cost of staying in the hotel. Should have 2 star rating.

... that was rescued from abandonment in the early 1900s by Lord Grimthorpe from Yorkshire. He came to this part of Italy in an attempt to recover from a serious depression following the early death of his wife, and fell in love with Ravello. As a consequence he purchased and restored Villa Cimbrione, creating a fabulous garden, heavily influenced by English designers such as Peto, Lutyens and Jekyll. Lord Grimthorpe ...
... for weddings and I can see why. Today was our last day in Positano. We returned to Positano village for an evening of shopping and a lovely dinner on the beach. I have certainly had enough pizza and pasta to last me a while! People eat dinner here quite late, around 9-9.30pm, which makes for a late night most nights. When dining out, there is also ...

Our hotel tonight is up on a quaint little hill overlooking the port. It is an older, family run hotel. Not very modern, but spacious and clean. Feels like an old Italian Nanna House - adds to the experience :)
Looking forward to our day trip out to the Isle of Capri tomorrow (and no coach, yay!). Xenia said there is a laundromat next door, so clean clothes in the arvo - yay ...
... of touring the town. The main attractions were the Villa Rufolo Gardens, the Villa Cimbrone Gardens and the Duomo (cathedral). The flowers were not in full bloom due to the time of the year, but it was still easy to see why they are they are so famous. The views were breathtaking and we all agreed the views at the Villa Cimbrone were our favorite. They are absolutely awe-inspiring. For more ...
... tired, so went for dinner in a nearby garden bar that was average at best (although my aubergine parmagiana was actually delicious).
After dinner James and I did a lap around town (armed with gelato of course) to watch all the night life. The streets were packed with people- families and older couples and women dressed the nines. We're not sure what was going on but we think it must've been some kind of festival weekend, because later on we heard some huge ...
