Hotel Palumbo Palazzo Confalone in Ravello, Amalfi Coast, Italy
Nestled on the Amalfi Coast, the rambling hillside estate of Hotel Palumbo Palazzo Confalone has hosted Federico Fellini, Richard Wagner, Truman Capote, Yoko Ono, diplomats and aristocrats. A walk through the Ravello estate offers a glimpse at the history of refined western culture: Marble columns date to 600 BC, and the arches, to the 11th century. Views from this perch reveal the rambling Amalfi coastline dotted with red-roofed palazzos and a patchwork of heritage vineyards. Here, the world has stood still.
Savor the expansive breakfast buffet served on the panoramic terrace and take in the landscape, unlike anything else in the world. After breakfast, descend down to the seaside, where a glamorous speedboat awaits to whisk you along the coast. Photograph the craggy cliffs and centuries-old villages where grandmothers still make pasta by hand. Return to take a tour of the Episcopio wine cellar, and enjoy a glass of Costa d’Amalfi DOC riserva while you watch the sun set from the Mediterranean-style rooftop rose garden. Be sure to reserve a table for dinner in the restaurant. Note: It’s worth arriving early to check out its the 17th-century salon with a frescoed vault and a painting by Caravaggio student San Giovanni Battista. End your day with an in-room massage.

Reviews for Hotel Palumbo Palazzo Confalone
We have been to Ravello many times and used to stay at the Palazzo Sasso (now Avino) but since retiring the cost is a bit of a stretch and their prices seem to have risen since the change of name. Next door is the Palumbo, which is actually better than the old Sasso and I now wish we had stayed there earlier. Intimate, charming, excellent service from the reception staff and absolutely beautiful inside. Our room had a stunning view of the bay and the building, ivy clad, wrapped around us in a charming room, generous bed size attractive furniture and beautiful balcony. The bar upstairs is a cosy intimate place perfect for a pre dinner drink. As the reviewer said below, breakfast is on the slim side, but that is a small matter compared to the general loveliness and comfort of the hotel. The hotel is set in a quiet part of town and the walk up from the square is good exercise after a good meal. We will definitely return later this year to stay and then try the hotel restaurant which sadly does not open for the season until next week.

This is a charming historic hotel. I would classify it as a boutique with 13 rooms. The views are outstanding, the staff great, the artwork historic. The hotel is located near the top of Ravello which is vehicle free and quiet. Be prepared to walk, down and back up. Also nice to not see any graffiti nor pan handlers. There is a charming garden plaza just outside the hotel (Luigiās Bar is a nice spot for refreshments).
My wife and I traveled to Ravelo, a wonderful, even magical, town along the Amalfi Coast in early April. Hotel Palumbo was perfect in every way, although we could not rate the dinner fare because the dining room was undergoing renovations. The views from the suites of the coast were simply amazing. The patios were a real bonus. The staff was exceedingly helpful and kind. The rooms were very large, the beds comfortable, and the common areas had an old world charm. It was a great location to both the center to town and to trails that crisscrossed and dropped down the mountain. The one challenge was the lack of variety in the breakfast. For such an outstanding hotel, this could use some improvement. I would not hesitate and even hope to return to this lovely hotel in the next few years.

I liked this hotel! It is beautiful inside, with a variety of internal spaces, reflecting the local history and culture. My room was nice and big for this area, with a gorgeous sea view and fast wi-fi, which I appreciated for my work. The bed was comfortable. The continental breakfast was very good, especially the croissants and coffee. The hotel has beautiful gardens, overlooking the sea, full of flowering trees. It also has a guests parking, an important detail as Ravello is infamous for problems with parking.

This is a wonderful place. A historical building in a stunning location that has been a hotel for a hundred years, with splendid hallways, old furniture, friendly staff and, of course, the most phantastic views. I stayed in a junior suite with a balcony right to the Amalfi coast, comfortable bed, oversized bathroom. I don't understand some of the criticism that I have read here on Tripadvisor - if you want Westin-style flashiness, go somewhere else. This is a historical place with charm and soul
