Bottom Line

The upper-middle-range Residence Hotel is an ocean-facing property located across from the popular Piazza Flavio Gioia. It's within close walking distance to the beach and several restaurants, bars, and shops -- Amalfi Cathedral is also just a minutes' walk behind the hotel. The 27 rooms are simple with classic decor, flat-screen TVs, minibars, and balconies. A buffet breakfast is included in room rates and there is an on-site restaurant open for lunch and dinner. Otherwise, features are limited as there are no pool, spa, or fitness facilities. Travelers looking for a swimming pool may want to consider Miramalfi Hotel, although it is not as central as Residence Hotel.

Scene

Classic hotel housed in an 18th-century aristocratic palace

The Residence Hotel is housed in an 18th-century aristocratic palace, and now features a mix of modern and classic decor. It's located above a row of street-side stores -- mostly boutique clothing and curio shops. Guests are then welcomed through an arched glass-lined entranceway into a passage lined with antique furniture and vines growing up the walls and along the stair railing. The lobby is fairly small, with light tiled floors, small reception desk, and antique sofa. There's a large central spiral staircase lined with potted plants and an original collection of antique artwork and decor. The artwork and collection of antique furniture carries through into the terra-cotta floored hallways. It's a rather elegant affair in the restaurant, with a large open room featuring low-hanging chandeliers and lounge areas with antique furniture. There's also a lovely outdoor terrace, which overlooks the buzzing beachfront street. The cozy and welcoming atmosphere attracts mostly couples (lots of honeymooners) and a few family and group travelers.

Location

Beachfront location on the Amalfi Coast; across from Piazza Flavio Gioia

Residence Hotel has a central location across from the Piazza Flavio Gioia, right on the Amalfi beachfront. There are numerous restaurants, cafes, bars, and shops within walking distance; as well as the beach. The Amalfi Cathedral and adjacent Moorish cloisters of Chiostro del Paradiso are just behind the hotel, a minute's walk away. Nearby museums include the Museo Civico e Palazzo di Citta and the Arsenal of the Maritime Republic which are both a minute's walk away The Paper Museum is nine minutes on foot. The Emerald Grotto, in the beautiful Conca dei Marini Bay, is nine minutes by car. There's a bus stop right in front of the hotel and the Amalfi Port is a four-minute walk away. Travelers arriving at Salerno Costa d'Amalfi Airport should expect the drive to the hotel to take about an hour and 10 minutes.
