Historical Traveler Reviews Floridiana Hotel Amalfi
This is the place!
I booked this lovely hotel through Venere(-) (which is a great service). The rooms were very clean and modern and the hotel staff cannot be beat. They went out of their way a couple of times to make sure our stay was pleasant. The location is wonderful (right on Amalfi's main square), the staff was awesome, and the breakfast room is a great place to stare at the ancient ceiling while enjoying an above-average Italian breakfast. The included parking is a must for high season and made this hotel an incredible bargain.
Lovely hotel and staff
We stayed here in the heat of July and found this hotel, in the heart of the Amalfi township, a joy. We had a clean, spacious room and lovely bathroom (lots of towels too) and the airconditioner worked well - essential for retreating to in the summer heat (and getting a good night's sleep). All the staff were helpful and friendly. The manageress is great and full of useful advice on things to do, where to eat, etc. We would highly recommend this hotel.
We stayed at the Floridiana June 24 to July 1 and were very pleased with the accomodation. After driving the terrifying Amalfi Drive, it was welcoming to finally
arrive at the hotel. We found all of the staff extremely helpful and pleasant. They all
went out of their way to accomodate all of our requests. Our room #7 came with
a second floor and terrance overlooking the front stairs of the hotel. The bathroom was
spacious and was stocked with an abundance of towels. They even provided towels
for the beach. The breakfast was great, and it was especially nice to have the manageress personnally welcome us each morning... asking what plans we had for the day. The location was in town close to restaurants and the bus terminal. They also had a parking garage which was included in the cost. Would recommend this hotel for a true
Amalfi experience, in the heart of all the action. Loved the food, church bells, fireworks
at night, the breathtaking scenery and of course the limoncello.
What a wonderful little hotel!
We arrived one day early only to find the hotel full. The very helpful front desk staff spent 30 minutes on the pone looking for another hotel for us - and finally found us one. By the time we checked in the Floridana the next night, we were old friends. The location is great, the rooms are a good size and spotless. The breakfast wonderful, along with all of the staff. Would most certainly stay at this hotel again. Highly recommended!
Fantastic Hotel, Great Location
The Hotel Floridiana is a little jem in the heart of Amalfi. The location of the hotel is superb, just metres from the main square. The rooms are very spacious and clean (we stayed in room #1 which has a balcony that looks over the main street). We found the staff to be extremely helpful and friendly. The Floridiana is also great value for money in an area where you can pay huge amounts for average accommodation. We would recommend the Hotel Floridiana to anybody who is due to visit the beautiful Amalfi Coast. Ciao.
Warm hospitality and excellent facilities - mille grazie!
We recently returned from a fantastic visit to the Floridiana Hotel! Thank you to the manageress for making our stay so splendid! She was extremely helpful in orienting us to the area and its many attractions and making us feel welcome and at home at the hotel. The manageress took the time to answer all our questions about the area, the hotel building (an amazing historical beauty), where to eat, what to see, etc. We are a family of four and were extremely pleased with the accommodation arrangements. The rooms were immaculate - very clean and recently renovated. The dining room is positively splendid with ancient frescos on the ceiling and walls. The hotel is in a prime location, neatly tucked away to feel private, yet only a few steps away from the main square of Amalfi - we couldn't have asked for more! All in all, I cannot speak highly enough about the hotel and its management. We will definitely be returning to stay at the Floridiana Hotel!
Just returned from 3 nights in this boutique hotel and could find no fault whatsoever. Have spent many nights booked into hotels which use imaginative photography to turn a pig's ear into a silk purse but this hotel surpassed the photos and descriptions given on the site. From the reception staff to the amenities in the room this hotel's attention to detail is quite unique and if, when the campanile chimes the hour and quarters throughout the morning, you get an early start to your day, then all the better to get up and walk 20 yards to the hub of Amalfi. Quite possibly the best hotel of its kind we have stayed in.
This was a great find. It's a tiny hotel but all rooms are newly re-furbished. Ours was enormous with a spacious bathroom, and everything was spotlessly clean. Breakfast is taken in a lovely and grand room with frescos on the ceiling. These were original features which had been sympathetically restored, and the furniture and ornaments were a beautiful mixture of historic and contemporary, that really came together with the room. Staff at the front desk were charming and couldn't have been more helpful. The only trouble you might have is in finding the place. It's up an alleyway off the main historical street in Amalfi, but you need to get a pass from the hotel to get access to the street by car. We had to park our car in the marina and look for the hotel on foot. Parking, however, is included in the room price - which made a change from rip-off Positano! If you're a light sleeper, make sure to close the thick shutters on all the windows, which perfectly cut out the street sounds in the early hours (they've thought of everything!). We would definitely recommend this place.

... was stunning! I kept walking back to the coast and passed and church where they were carrying out a coffin. A wedding and a funeral within like 50 metres! That was enough looking around for me, I wanted to get back to my room and my view, iv caught a free shuttle bus back up and had my second roll outside. I talked to Adrian for a bit before settling in and watching the sun set. I read almost a whole book and and the best sleep ...
... getting on! (.... and to quote Andrew Lloyd Webber from Evita....) Oh what a circus!! BTW - the "shopping" was a book on Pompeii. We had seen this book in Positano and recalled that the printed price was 10 euros. When buying the exact same book in Amalfi, the printed price was 8 euros. Jan assumed that the Positano version of the book must be an "updated" version ! The wind was still pretty strong when we turned up for dinner at Bruno's Restaurant (just a ...
... and definitely a topic I want to learn more about!! After spending 3 hours walking around Pompeii, we met back up with Antonio who drove us along the curving, winding roads to the Amalfi Coast. It is absolutely beautiful here, right on the water with the buildings seeming to come right out of the cliffs. Our hotel is gorgeous and we took advantage of the roof top pool this afternoon. We then ...
... so after asking a few locals just WHERE ARE WE? we were finally pointed in the right direction to head back up yet another hill towards the town of Pontone. Oh man, what a climb. We then get out that trusty "24 Walks along the the Amalfi Coast" book that we have now realized the maps and directions were partly lost in translation from Italian to British English and discovered that again after coming to a dead end trail overlooking a deep ravine, we have to turn around to find the ...
... were sore and she got much hotter than I did. Some people had silly footwear on (it was amazing in Pisa for example I saw one woman climb the Tower in high heels - for goodness sake) and many in Pompei did not wear hats either. Katie and I did,as I insisted on it, and was glad I did. We saw one relatively elderly man collapse from the heat and he hurt himself quite badly falling poor thing - it was obviously too much for him. I drank a ton of water on the tour, but ...
