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
Having navigated the tourist crowds of Capri, Positano & Amalfi we were delighted to arrive at the Hotel Palumbo in Ravello. A restored luxury villa, with everything that you need, complemented by excellent service, good food and outstanding views from every room. The location is very close to the center of Ravello and yet is serenely quiet. We agreed that we should have stayed here for the duration and day-tripped to the other towns on the coast.

My wife and I were treated with great hospitality. We were there for our honeymoon and the receptionist was very helpful with any advice or tips during your stay in Ravello. The hotel in general is like living in a museum with so much history and of course the view is amazing.

We had reserved a table on the terrace for lunch but moved just inside to the dining room at the Palumbo as the weather had changed from windy to an oncoming storm. The food was spectacular. The service was outstanding and the palace itself very beautiful. If you want something special this may be the place. An intimate wedding would be terribly romantic here and the view over the coastline and surrounding mountains is quite magical. On a clear day the view would be glorious. White cloths, beautiful crockery, old marble and hand painted tiles, beautiful muted painted ceilings; old world Italian charm. Absolute delight.

The drive up the hill from the coast to the hotel can take 30-45 minutes. There is a section of the road that is only accessible by traffic in one direction at a time so you may need to wait 15-20 minutes at a red light. We used Google Maps as our GPS and it took us three tries to get to the hotel successfully. As you come into town on Strada Statale di Ravello the last hairpin turn to the right becomes Via della Marra. In 300 m there is a fork in the road. If you go straight you enter a tunnel and you end up on Via Giovanni Boccaccio. This means you have gone the wrong way. Before the tunnel turn right onto (stay on) Via della Marra. Take your first left onto Viale Parco della Rimembranza. Turn right at the fountain onto Viale Giocchino dâ€™Anna. This will take you down a long narrow street and place you in front of the Belmond Hotel Caruso. Park in the area across from the hotel where signs say no parking. Walk through the archway on Via S. Giovanni del Toro to Hotel Palumbo. Ask the front desk to have a porter drive your car to the garage (unless youâ€™re comfortable doing it yourself). We had to fold the side view mirrors in order to fit through the archway and even then we only had a 2-inch clearance on each side. The porter will bring your bags back to the hotel. Once at the hotel, you will feel as if you have travelled back in time. The architecture is stunning and the views are legendary. We were shown to a room in the main building that has arches resembling the main lobby. The room was cozy but not what we had in mind so we asked if they could show us another room. We were taken 2 floors up and shown a 2-level unit with its own balcony and an expansive patio with lounge chairs, couches and a patio table. The accommodations were compact but charming. It was completely removed from the rest of the building and on the same level as the restaurant. The hotel is sandwiched between other more modern 5-star hotels that cost 2x-3x the price of Hotel Palumbo. It is also a 5-minute walk to the main plaza (Piazza Centrale) in front of the Duomo and another 3 minutes to the bus stop. We strongly recommend taking the bus down to the coast. Itâ€™s 30 minutes from Ravello to Amalfi and costs 1.50 Euro. Tickets can be purchased at the Tabacchi across from the church. For the adventurous it is possible to walk from Ravello to Amalfi by following a series of footpaths. Itâ€™s about 3 km and takes an hour downhill. Compared to the other 5-star hotels, Hotel Palumbo is a bargain. Once you get there the hotel is centrally located close to everything. The service is helpful and friendly. The town is known for its music so you may see or hear live music while you are there. We cannot wait to return.

We stayed 5 days here at the end of August. The entire place is very nice and charming. Breakfast and dinners were very good on the terrasse with a wonderful view the the Amalfi coast. The staff is very kind. There is a parking for the car with an extra charge of 25 â‚¬ per day
