Historical Traveler Reviews Residenza del Duca Hotel Amalfi
Beautiful little hotel
Very nice hotel in the old city center.
Room was large and the furnishings are beautiful and elegant and have facilities inside. Very large bathroom with jacuzi and marble. Breakfast excellent served in the room included. Beautiful panorama on the old city and sea. Garage. Friendly staff. No lift.
Such a pleasant suprise!
Before going to Italy, I became sick of what travel agency offered our family for stay in Amalfi coast, so I spent a whole day on the internet and, lucky me... found what I was looking for! Original, small, welcoming, clean Italian family hotel with personal attitude, ideal breakfast, good sanitary and so on... I think a lot of people are tired of big hotel-factories, staying in which you sometimes can not realise in which country of the world you are - everything is the same and soullesss. This is not the case. I give 5 stars, because for money of weak 3 star hotel you receive a feeling of a good 4 star acomodation. We - parents and three children stayed here for 5 nights. What is important - do not spend money for a car rent. There is no need for it in Amalfi coast. Our car was parked for 5 days in a garge. For that money we spent for renting a car, we could go back and forth to Rome twice by taxi. When we left, Del Duca was closing for some renowations, but try it, when it is posssible. And what else - the rewiews on the net give very good information about what to expect!
71 Steps to heaven
A pleasing end to a bad day. Day 4 of our Italian adventure. The road to Amalfi is not for the faint at heart. But the treasure that is Amalfi will amaze. The room was very clean and the personal decorating tastfully done (definately a womens touch). The bathrooms were clean and well equiped. The cold breakfast was a feast served in room on the terrace, or in the adequite breakfast room. Just ask Geraldo, he is very accomidating and very polite. No meat, but plenty of cheese, baked goods fresh fruit yoguirt and Cappucinos mmmm. The terrace (20E extra) overlooks one of the side squares. The room has a sea view, well you can see blue anyways...Not really the sea though. Many good resteraunts close by, Highly recommended. But the 71 Steps to get to this Room are a chore. Ask for assistance with luggage. Geraldos son is fit and ready to help.
We will return to this one.
Great little hotel
We spend quite a lot of time trying to decide where to stay in Amalfi
Prices are quite expensive in the general area so finding a good value for money option we thought would be really hard.
Residenza del Duca Hotel tuned out to be perfect.
The staff at the hotel treat you almost like a member of the family.
Rooms were clean and had all the facilities you would expect in a 3 star.
Loved the power shower!
Breakfast was usual Italian breakfast with lovely citrus Amalfi additions.
Location was great, just off the second main square
Only downside is the hotel is up 3 flights of steep stairs but anyone of a standard level of fitness shouldnt be too concerned. The staff will help you carry the bags if you need help
Wouldnt hesiatate tio recommend this place
Excellent place to stay
Pleasant room with nice upgrades, good size and very clean. Loved the location - B&B accessed by 76 steps up from a small piazza in the Amalfi center (they will help you with your luggage) but plan your outings accordingly. We had a big terrace off our room but with no sea view. Breakfast included fresh, exciting pasty and delicious fruit. Hotel staff was very nice and made us very comfortable.
Really hated this hotel. Myself and my boyfriend booked (two months in advance) a room with a balcony and a sea view. We ended up with a self catering apartment with no balcony and no sea. The apartment rather uniquely contained someone else's clothes, someone else's crockery, TV, books, papers, toiletries, etc. We complained to the owner and her son who told us they would come and show us what else they had available, which never happened. We decided to stay, however the first night I was kept awake until after midnight by the sound of someone singing 'Volare' amongst other classics in the square directly below the window, then the children of the family who lived in one of the neighbouring apartments began playing in the stairwell with their dog which kept me awake for another hour. Finally I dressed and when upstairs to the hotel reception to complain but the hotel was shut. The next day we found alternative accommodation and decided to check out as the room was not what we had booked, at which point we were informed there was a minimum stay and whether we stayed or not we would have to pay. Needless to say we did not pay the extra night or stay a second longer!! Thank God for the Miramalfi Hotel or this would of been one of the worst holiday's I've been on!
What a lovely place!
Me any my wife stayed in the Duca hotel for 2 nights during our honeymoon and the place was gorgeous. Spotlessely clean, real italain decor, jacuzzi shower, and a large terrace looking over the historical sqaure. It was magic!
The owner is really friendly too. The only down side is that its got a alot of steps to get to it but its well worth the effort with your suitcase.
Try and get a room with a terrace rather than a balcony as it makes all the difference I'd say.
There are some very nice quite restaurants also in the centre which is right outside the main hotel entrance.
Very Highly recommended!
Amalfi was one of out favourite places during our stay in Italy.
A Real Gem in Amalfi
My husband and I stayed at the Residenza del Duca last May and could not have been happier with the experience. Geraldo, the owner, was warm, accomodating, and always eager to make sure that we were pleased with his hotel. The room was decorated beautifully and was spotlessly clean. We had a balcony with a sea view and also a view of the comings and goings in the courtyard below. Our breakfast was served in our room or on the balcony (our choice) with a fresh tablecloth on the table each day. Breakfast was always a fresh baked pastry of some kind, yogurt, juice, breads, and wonderful coffee. We had trouble with our rental car when we first arrived, and the wonderful woman at the desk called the rental company to work out details, since the recording we got was all in Italian! Geraldo's son also worked the desk, and was extremely helpful and friendly. All in all, we felt as if we were guests in their home rather than hotel patrons. The only thing that surprised us was the number of stairs to get to the hotel itself, but, after all, this was Amalfi. Everything there involved climbing! It was always worth it to return to such a wonderful room and warm, caring hosts. I would recommend this hotel heartily to anyone staying in Amalfi.

We played sweet and sour and I got a lot of sweets. It is where you wave at other people and if they wave back it is sweet and if they don't wave it is sour.

We saw into rich peoples houses, bars and shops, streets with wagon wheel tracks cut into the basalt cobblestones, temples and even a brothel! In some of the buildings the plaster was still intact that were painted, we also saw some mummified bodies and skeletons. I have often wondered why the people were caught so off guard as it was buried ...
