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.

... 26 people so at least it's a smaller bus. There are quite a few Americans in it by the sounds of accents. Driving through the Sorrento streets (slowly! Must be a nightmare in peak season). Gosh there are some lovely clothes in the shops. The drive was beautiful but very windy. Unfortunately I'm on the mountain side of the bus but hopefully will get ocean views on the way back. Positano is beautiful. Of course ...
... br> What happens in Italy, and particularly on the Amalfi Coast, is that hotels, home owners hold off doing any construction work until the season is over. It makes sense, and you see stop/go lights at various points as you negotiate this coastal road. It's just if you're the tourist, visiting and it's officially "not the tourist season", then add this to the experience!

Early breakfast this morning. We have to be ready when our driver arrives.
Stefan (our driver from Rome In Limo) arrived right on 8.30am as booked.
He was a very pleasant man - born in France but married to an Italian and living in Rome.
He spoke perfect English and was very informative and engaged in very friendly conversation during the day.
I had booked a tour for just the two of us to Sorrento & Positano (Amalfi Coast) for the day, so ...

Luckily I have the most amazing mother ever and was able to have her call me from Sydney and help me work through what to do and also contact the Tour company and let them know I would be late. The next reasonably priced flight to Naples was the following day and as I didn't fancy a sleepless night in the airport check in area (I couldn't go through to the gates as new flight was ...
... vertical drop with a road full of Italian drivers and motor bike riders and you get a ride you're not likely to forget. Sometimes the road passes above a beach people down below look like ants - very tiny ants. They would have to be very fit ants as well as the climb back up take over an hour on foot (the only way up). Positano is a small village that is very exclusive and therefore fairly expensive. The road int and out of Positano narrows to one lane circular track about 4 ...
