Historic Amalfi Hotels: the best five

Historic Amalfi Hotels: the best five Historic Amalfi Hotels: Hotel Luna Convento 

Among the Historic Amalfi Hotels there is certainly the Hotel Luna Convento, a former convent characterized by a unique environment that guarantees a fantastic view over the Amalfi coast. The rooms, each decorated differently from one another, are former monks' cells; they surround the ancient Moorish cloister dating back to the 13th century. Founded in 1222 by St. Francis of Assisi, the church is still used today to celebrate weddings and other religious rites. Always chosen by an elite clientele (Friederich Preller and Simone de Beauvoir stayed here among the others), the Hotel Luna Convento combines historical decorations with the most modern comforts, including wi-fi and a spectacular outdoor swimming pool overlooking the sea, to ensure an unforgettable stay. 

Historic Amalfi Hotels: NH Collection Grand Hotel Convento di Amalfi 

In the first five Historic Amalfi Hotels there is the NH Collection Grand Hotel Convento of Amalfi, once a Capuchin monks' convent, which won the Southern Europe Best Scenic View Hotel award at the World Luxury Hotel Awards 2019. Just 400 meters from the city center of Amalfi, it has two restaurants, two reading rooms (one with a sea view) and a panoramic terrace. Rooms have sea views, terracotta floors and amenities like flat-screen TVs, minibars and private marble bathrooms. Furthermore, in this structure you will also find an infinity pool, a gym, a wellness spa where you can indulge in the luxury of relaxing massages and a heated pool in winter. 

Historic Amalfi Hotels: Hotel Residence 

Among the Historic Amalfi Hotels we couldn’t forget the Hotel Residence, an 18th century noble building converted into a hotel in the 50s and completely renovated in 2010. Just a 2 minutes walk from the Duomo and the main square of Amalfi, it has magnificent panoramic views on the Mediterranean Sea and spacious, modern rooms. The property has its own lounge bar, but restaurants and cafes are at a short walk from here. It is also next to the port and the bus station, making its position strategic for those who want to explore the Amalfi coast. 

Historic Amalfi Hotels: Hotel La Bussola 

One of the most famous Historic Amalfi Hotels is certainly the Hotel La Bussola, located just a few meters from Piazza del Duomo and the center of Amalfi. Very close to the tourist port that connects Amalfi with Positano, Capri, Ischia, Naples and Salerno, the structure dates back to the early 20th century. The rooms are elegant, spacious, decorated with Vietri ceramic tiles and private balconies with sea views. From this structure you can also easily move to reach the bus station or the Salerno-Pontecagnano airport. 

Hotel Villa Felice Relais 

Last but not least, between Historic Amalfi Hotels there is the Hotel Villa Felice Relais, slightly out of the traffic of Amalfi but easily reachable from its center, with a sea view and a sun terrace where you can enjoy a breathtaking view from Conca dei Marini to Capo d'Orso. The rooms are elegant and equipped with private bathrooms, decorated with Vietri ceramic tiles and some rooms also have a private terrace. In this structure it is possible to rent electronic or traditional bicycles; it also offers free parking and is close to the bus station to allow you to move as you wish.
