We were there in October, and Amalfi, Capri, etc., were still drowning in other tourists. If you want peace and quiet and relief from day times spent in the crowds, San Giovanni is a lovely place to be. It's as beautiful as the photos on the web site with wonderful views down the terraced ravine to Amalfi and the sea. It's new, rooms are spacious, airy and well thought out for whatever needs you might have. Staff is friendly, knowledgeable and go out of their way to help. Breakfast buffet is extensive and there's parking for an extra fee in a place that otherwise would be very difficult to park.

Brand new hotel with amazing views, spatious rooms and excellent staff. Is a fair distance from amalfi and can be difficult to access as taxi's are costly (a hotel shuttle to amalfi would be fantastic). Loved the hotel would only suggest a couple of mirrors to be added to the family room.

Charming Hotel
I totally love this hotel, although you have to have strong knees to brace the many steps, the views and everything-else is totally worth it! I was in town for a wedding in Ravello, this was an excellent choice. Not far from Amalfi city center, matter of fact, my friend and I walked down the steps for about twenty minutes. Lina at hotel was excellent, she went above and beyond. for us.
