Historical Traveller Reviews of Tramonto D'Oro Hotel

No view

from A TripAdvisor Member
We just returned from an 11 day tour of Italy through Trafalgar's Real Italy tour. Having read reviews of this hotel prior to the trip, I was anticipating a very lovely stay.

Unfortunately our group of approximately 45 people were given a block of rooms. Some in our tour group received fantastic rooms with magnificent views and sitting areas along with very large balconies overlooking the water. Others were given nice rooms with smaller sitting areas and balconies but still with water views. A few had rooms with partial views from their balconies but still had adequate space in their rooms.

The room we were assigned, number 52, was on the lowest level, (all rooms go down from the lobby level, we were on level negative three) and was extremely tiny with barely enough room to squeeze around the 2 twin beds that were pushed together. We had no view due to a wall outside in front of our room. However the worst aspect was the bathroom that had a large amount of black mold on the ceiling and throughout the shower and glass doors. The drain was covered with slimy scum. We felt like we were given a worker's room in the dungeon.

After listening to others in our tour group in rooms above us ooh and awe at their magnificent views with large decks & lounge chairs for relaxing we returned to the desk to demand a different room due to the mold in our bathroom as well as having no view.

We were told that our group received this block of rooms and even if we all paid the same amount for the tour not everyone was able to get a room with a view. (There were 3 or 4 rooms with people from our group on the same level as us but we were the only ones we are aware of who had to stay in a room with mold in the bathroom. One other room, number 53, also had mold but these people were able to move to another room. I believe the hotel staff moved a few parties for various reasons and then decided absolutely no more moves will be made.) We were so upset with this room that the excitement and joy of our trip was severely dampered.

We stayed 2 nights and after the first night and many demands that we be given a different room we were moved to a much larger room with a small balcony and a view of the water. This bathroom did not have any mold so we were grateful to be out of the room with the moldy bathroom.

I would recommend this hotel only if you can be assured of a room on the first or second levels down from the lobby. Also be aware that some rooms have obscured views. There is also a church next to and south of the hotel that rings its loud bells every 15 minutes so a room farthest away from this church is also recommended.

We ate dinner in this hotel both nights and found the food to be fine but not outstanding. We ate breakfast in this same dining room and found the views from here to be magnificent. Fantastic coffee and croissants.

The staff was friendly as long as you didn't need anything but due to their rigidity in helping resolve our problem I would say they were not helpful.

Fabulous hotel with stunning views

from colk
This was our splurge hotel on this trip to Italy and was worth every euro. I generallly prefer to spend my money on food and wine but when I couldn't book a less expensive hotel because of a minimium stay requirement, the website of this hotel won me over. This hotel was even more beautiful than the website depicted. In fact, this is one of the nicest 4 star hotels I have stayed at anywhere. It certainly had the most spectacular views and sunsets (and I didn't think anything could beat the views at the Belvedere in Bellagio). We arrived at 11 am and were shortly given the happy news that we had been upgraded to a deluxe suite and shown to our lovely room. They told us they like to make their customers happy when they can. The fabulous, spacious room had beautiful tile designs on the floors and walls, a private seaview terrace with a view of the Faraglioni rocks of Capri, a sitting area with comfortable sofa and TV and a very comfortable King sized bed. And have I mentioned the beautiful roses on the dresser? I wondered what I had done in a past life to deserve all this beauty! The bathroom was large and modern with all the ammenities you would expect in a 4 star hotel. Lots of hot water with good shower pressure, lage towels, a hairdyer and slippers.

The Espisito family who have run this hotel for 50 years are very professional and just plain nice, taking a personal interest in your comfort and needs. Staff would routinely ask how you spent your day upon returning from an excursion.

The breakfast room also had spectacular sea views and the breakfast buffet selection had something for everyone; cereal, fruit, delicious home made tarts, croissants, bread, yogurt, hard boiled eggs, meat and cheese. There is a good sized pool on the roof with those same stunning views and a private beach (neither of which we used as it was tooo cool).

The location was convenient for travel to Amalfi Coast towns as it is located 4 kms from Positano and 9 kms from Amalfi and the bus stopped right in front of the hotel. Despite being on the main road, the hotel was extremely quiet and peaceful. It was also a nice respite from the crowds in Positano. Although we didn't partake in any, tours were also available to many coastal spots.

The sunsets were so spectacular that it was hard to motivate ourselves to leave the room. Happily there were 2 terrific restaurants close by: La Strada and Le Brace(reviwed on this site) across and just down the street. The hotel also has a well regarded restaurant (that we didn't try) if you really don't want to move.

I can't say enough good things about this hotel. Our orginal superior room with a seaview was €210, the deluxe €250. Money well spent for such beauty and great service. I would stay here again in a heartbeat should I return to the Amalfi Coast

Not quite as good as other reviewers suggest

from ReturntoDublin
I stayed in the Tramonto D’Oro during September 2005.

While I found it to be a good hotel, I can’t use the superlatives used others who have posted reviews.

On the positive side….

All rooms have superb views across the bay, and the sunset is spectacular – I’ve attached two photos which really don’t do it justice.

The evening meal in the hotel was good, was good value and the staff were friendly. Breakfast was average, although if you were lucky enough to get a table on the terrace outside, the view was super.

The hotel has ample parking, and if you find the narrow winding roads too much of a strain, the local bus service is reliable and cheap, providing good connections to Amalfi and Positano.

The staff at reception are friendly, welcoming and informative

However, our experience was not all perfect.

On the negative side….

The most significant ‘negative’ comment I have about this hotel is that it does not provide value for money. It has many advantages, but other less expensive hotels can match its services and standards. The Tramonto D’Oro is over-priced, and is trading on the superb view available at sunset. Unless staying in Praiano is important to you, I’d look elsewhere.

The bathroom in our room (number 31) was in dire need of renovation – grouting between the tiles was filthy, the lighting was feeble, and the ventilation was poor.

The air-conditioning can at best be described as adequate.

The hotel is located quite high up the hill side, and while walking down to the sea is easy, and the rocky shoreline is pleasant and relaxing, coming back up to the hotel again is not quite so pleasant. On a hot day, it’s probably a great way to lose weight!!!

The swimming pool was at roof level, slightly above the street. However, as the street had a moderately steep incline, the pool and sun bathing areas were overlooked by passing buses, and they were also overlooked by hotels and other properties on the far side of the street. Noise and fumes from passing traffic were also very noticeable. And the cooling units for the hotel’s air conditioning are also at one end of a row of deck chairs, and are very noisy when operational.

The corridors in the hotel are noisy, and some guests made sleeping at night difficult – in fairness to the hotel, this is hardly their fault.

Our bedroom also had a door connecting directly to the adjacent room – this meant that we got to hear their television whenever it was on.

On balance, despite the amazing sunset, I’d recommend users of Tripadvisor[--] to stay elsewhere.

Really lovely hotel

from Hisimp
My wife and I enjoyed a fabulous 10-day break at the Tramonto D'Oro. Superb views across the sea and along the Amalfi Coast from the restaurant windows and hotel bedrooms. Well worth staying in Praiano, a small and quiet village, when exploring this part of Italy, rather than some of the bigger resorts. The hotel food at dinner was of a very high standard. However, it is the staff that make this hotel so special - warm, friendly and polite. There are a couple of nice little bars just along the road and a bus stop right outside the hotel - so you do not need to hire a car and attempt to drive along the hair-pin bends of the coast road - leave it to the expert bus drivers! Will definitely stay here again (and next time hope for some drier weather!)

A special place run by special people!

from pierrejay
My wife and I are usually pretty hard on hotels that do not meet our standards. If only they could all be like this one. Excellent rooms (go for de-luxe) and staff we would all like to employ. You won't go wrong here.

The Best!

from Gaylord25
I can not tell you how much my husband and I enjoyed our stay at Hotel Tramonto D'Oro. I believe we had the best view in all of the Amalfi Coast. The staff was wonderful! The rooms are beautiful and clean! Our balcony was huge and private and we watched the sunset every night from it. Priano was an excellent location, quiet but accessible to all the more tourist locations. As far as we are concerned there is no better place to stay!

Perfect Hotel, Great location

from A TripAdvisor Member
We have just returned from the Tramonto D'Oro where we were staying for a week to celebrate our silver wedding.
Everything was fabulous and we found the staff very helpful when we needed information on buses, tours etc.
The hotel is perfectly positioned about mid-way between Positano and Amalfi, making regular trips to these towns easy. The other main places of interest in the area are easy to reach too. We visited Ravello, Capri and Sorrento during our stay.
The views from the hotel are simply stunning and the pool area is quiet, with lots of sunbeds, umberellas etc. Although it was very hot during our stay, we were able to sit in the shade at the pool lookng across to Positano.
The hotel has probably the best Air Conditioning System we have ever come across, making the whole hotel comfortable even when it is very hot!
We would recommend this hotel and location for anyone wanting to visit the Amalfi Coast.

Amalfi gold

from TeddyBA
You couldn't choose a better place to stay on the Amalfi coast. At Tramonto d'Oro you get treated as a friend, but it lacks for nothing in professionalism and service. The breathtaking views fits this relaxed and stylish hotel as if it was part of its interior. The restaurant is absolutely top class and dining "in" is an absolute must during your stay. You have plenty of nice restaurants close by to provide variation though, even if Praiano is a small place. A perfect base from where to explore the beauty and charm of the area.
Thanks to the Esposito family for running a hotel the way it should be run.

wedded bliss

from A TripAdvisor Member
We were married last month and spent our honeymoon on the Amalfi coast at the Hotel Tramonto d'Oro. This family run hotel was close to perfect. Our room was beautiful with a stunning view from our private balcony which had table, chairs and sun beds. The air conditioning was efficient and very quiet but sleeping with the doors open is such a joy you might not want to use the a/c anyway. The rooms climb up a cliff face so it is quiet at night and there were no mosquitoes either. The food in the restaurant was so good we ate there every night and the friendly and professional service we received from all the staff was faultless. No-one knew we were on our honeymoon until the last evening of our stay so we did not get any preferential treatment; respectful attentiveness to their guests is just the way the Esposito family and their staff treat every visitor.

We found the Hotel Tramonto d'Oro via an internet search and the response to the initial enquiry came back quickly and professionally. The website is monitored and maintained carefully, the importance of that first impression is well understood by this close-knit family who have many years experience in the business. Carmella or ‘Mama’ Esposito personally visit the dining room each evening to chat with every guest – Carmella says this is how she practices her English and she is genuinely interested in how you spent your day. My husband travels a great deal and his standards are high; the welcome from the Esposito family exceeded our expectations and the service was impeccable throughout our stay.

The hotel is spacious and spotlessly clean, as is the pool, the maid service was excellent. There are ample sun beds, brollies and towels. The menu varies each day with many local specialities all cooked and served beautifully. The Maitre d’ knows his stuff and the wine list is good. Asking for assistance at reception with travel plans to get out and about, hire a car etc Agnes could not do enough for us and all the information provided was absolutely accurate!

There is an ATM across the road and a couple of local bars and shops within 100yds of the hotel. Parking for hotel guests is easy and you need not be afraid of the mountain roads, the mirrors on every bend help you drive safely and easily. The scenery along this coast is stunning, do the Amalfi drive by bus or by car but don’t miss it. Situated between Positano and Amalfi, Praiano is perfectly located for those who want a slightly quieter holiday but still with all the sights (Ravello, Pompeii, Vesuvius, Capri) within easy reach. Buses stop right outside the hotel and they run on time!

Listening to the local people socialising in the square every evening with the children playing as the church clock chimed every quarter hour (but it doesn’t chime at night!) is a memory which will stay with us for ever. We sat on the restaurant balcony after dinner with our final drink just savouring the view, the warmth of the night air and the true Italian atmosphere. Hotel Tramonto d’Oro was the most perfect venue for our honeymoon (but it might not be lively enough for younger newly weds.)

I have never felt enthused enough to write a hotel review before but this has been a pleasure. We will definitely recommend this beautiful spot to anyone and, it wasn’t expensive either.

If we ever return to the Amalfi coast I know where we shall be staying…and I know the welcome will be just as genuine next time.


from DSS45
Wonderful hotel - magnificent position with superb views. We have just returned from a ten day stay at the Tramonto d'Oro and cannot recommend it highly enough. The staff are welcoming, attentive and helpful and look after your every need with a warm smile. The rooms are comfortable and well appointed and the food is excellent. The local buses stop right outside the door or, if you have a car, there is ample free parking right outside as well. The rooftop swimming pool and sun terrace is a wonderful place to simply relax and laze away the hours. If you are wondering where to stay on the Amalfi coast, look no further - stay at the Tramonto d'Oro!

Top Local Tips for Praiano

Private Boat Rides Splurge and pay to have one of the locals on the tiny wooden boats with the roll out shades give you a private coast line tour. They will bring you to private beaches to swim accessible only by boat and show you homes of famous people. Just bring along some snacks. We did a two hour cruise up one side of the coast and then the next day around the other. Priceless way to see everything while relaxing. (We paid $60 US dollars each time including tip)

Bus travel time Give yourself 30 minutes to get to Poistano via the bus. It's a crazy drive along a winding road!

Hire Cars To Drive This Coast The coast and its towns are very acessible by public buses, but we found hiring cars to be the best for longer trips and getting off the beaten paths. I absolutely would NOT drive these roads myself.
