Bottom Line

The three-pearl Hotel L’Antico Convitto is a solid choice for couples and small groups seeking a central base from which to explore the spectacular Amalfi coast. The family-operated, boutique hotel offers 10 individually decorated rooms that are clean and spacious, with upscale bathrooms, coffeemakers, and minibars. The hotel's free hot breakfast buffet can be taken to the rooftop terrace, which offers sweeping views of the city and rugged coastline. Concierge services and free Wi-Fi are available, but there’s no on-site parking or restaurant.

Scene

Quiet boutique hotel with a rooftop terrace and spectacular views

The entrance to this family-run, boutique hotel is unusual in that arriving guests must take the elevator to the third floor where a small wooden desk serves as the registration area. The lobby and adjacent breakfast area are small but pleasant, with high ceilings, arched entrances, and white and light-blue tile floors in a traditional pattern that complements the white walls. The marquee attraction is the spacious rooftop terrace, where many guests take their breakfast or have an afternoon drink. The space has covered tables and chairs plus lounge chairs, and offers spectacular views of the coastline, cathedral, and rugged cliffs. This is a quiet and friendly hotel that attracts a global clientele including couples and small groups, many of whom are hikers trekking along the world-famous Amalfi coastline. 

Location

On a narrow street in the center of Amalfi, a brief walk from attractions

Hotel L’Antico Convitto is situated in a narrow street in the center of Amalfi, just off the lively main avenue that’s lined with shops, cafes, and restaurants. A small grocery also is located adjacent to the hotel’s front entrance. It's a three-minute walk to Amalfi Cathedral, and about five minutes to the seafront. The ferry terminal, where boats can be caught for Positano (a 20-minute ride) and Salerno (a 35-minute ride), is a seven-minute walk from the hotel. The nearest train station is in Salerno, a one-hour drive away. Other popular tourist destinations include Pompei, a 70-minute drive away, and Ravello, a 17-minute drive. Naples International Airport is the closest major airport, and it's a 90-minute drive. 

Rooms

Clean, spacious, and individually decorated rooms with minibars and nice bathrooms

Guest rooms at the Hotel L'Antico Convitto are clean, spacious, and individually decorated, but they share a bright and airy look thanks to white walls and high ceilings. Floors are tiled in salmon or white and blue shades. Dark-wood furniture includes small desks and matching padded chairs. All of the rooms have a singular, dominant color scheme of salmon, gold, blue, or brown that's used in bedspreads, drapes, and padded headboards. Size varies somewhat by category (Standard, Superior, Family, and Junior Suite), and some of the larger rooms have sleeper sofas. Standard amenities include coffeemakers, minibars, flat-screen TVs, room service, and electronic safes. 

Bathrooms are nicely sized and upscale, with distinctive tile floors and walls, roomy white ceramic vanities, bidets, and toilets. Walk-in showers with clear glass doors, rainfall showerheads, and wall jets come standard. Some rooms have limited views of the ocean and nice views of the nearby cathedral. Others overlook the street and historic buildings surrounding the hotel. Rooms are generally quiet, but those facing the street get a bit more ambient noise.

Features

Rooftop terrace, free hot breakfast buffet, free Wi-Fi, and concierge and valet laundry services

As a petite and simple mid-range property, the Hotel L'Antico Convitto has a nice list of features, though it is missing a pool and a full restaurant. Amenities do include a free breakfast buffet with a nice selection of hot and cold items served in a pleasant white room with arched entrances, high ceilings, and artwork depicting Amalfi scenes. Guests can also take their breakfast up to the rooftop terrace on the fourth floor, which offers amazing views of the coast, cliffs, and cathedral bell tower. The front desk is staffed 24/7 and can provide concierge and valet laundry services. The hotel also provides a free porter service from the public square’s transportation center to the hotel via a golf cart. There's no on-site parking, so guests must use public facilities that are a few minutes’ walk away. Free Wi-Fi is available throughout the hotel.
