Accommodation on the Amalfi Coast

There is accommodation on the Amalfi Coast for every taste and for almost every budget. Amalfi and Positano are the main tourist centres of the Amalfi Coast and accommodation prices there are therefore comparatively expensive. If you want to get hold of a nice room at a reasonable price here during the peak tourist season between May and September, you should either book well in advance or plan your hiking tour so that you stay a little outside these hotspots.

If, like us, you would like to pre-book your accommodation via, you are welcome to use our tabular planning/booking guide: To the planning table.

On our hike, we particularly liked the many small family-run businesses that pamper their guests as bed & breakfasts or agriturismos, some with only four or five rooms.

Overnight stay in Salerno (arrival day)

In Salerno we can recommend the following accommodation: B&B Vigi. B&B Vigi is a newly renovated B&B on the 2nd floor of a residential building near the cathedral, small and friendly with only 4 rooms. Breakfast is served in the café around the corner, for which you get a voucher at check-in. The central location is perfect for exploring the old town and with many nice bars and restaurants.
Tip: WhatApp users are welcome guests. If you leave your mobile number when booking, the landlord will send you help or directions via WhatsApp on the day of arrival.

The Vigi Bed & Breakfast is somewhat hidden, but has a rather memorable logo.

Stage 1: Overnight stay

Rooms with great views and colourful tiling: Hotel Torre di Milo in Maiori

Hotel recommendation in Maiori: Hotel Torre di Milo

Maiori is nowhere near as fashionable and famous as other places on the Amalfi Coast, which is why accommodation prices in Maiori are kept within reasonable limits.

We can recommend the following hotel in Maiori: Hotel Torre di Milo. At the Hotel Torre di Milo there are well-kept rooms at reasonable prices, all rooms have recently renovated bathrooms and some rooms have a balcony with a view. Breakfast is outsourced to a nearby restaurant in the pedestrian zone, which is also worth a visit in the evening: At Ristorante Pineta 1903 good cuisine is served (also vegan on request), in good weather also on the cosy terrace.

Stage 2: Overnight stay

Located an hour above Amalfi, but warm and personal: the newly opened Bed&Breakfast "L'Arabesco"

Overnight stay in Pogerola (above Amalfi)

The town of Amalfi gives its name to the entire coast and is an international tourist magnet with correspondingly high accommodation prices. For long-distance hikers in good shape, we therefore recommend an overnight stay a little above Amalfi in the small village of "Pogerola" (approx. 1 hour additional walk). There are some very nice and comparatively affordable bed & breakfast accommodations and a sufficiently large selection of pizzerias and restaurants. Highly recommended is the Bed&Breakfast L'Arabesco, newly opened in 2014, with only 3 rooms (see picture above, Bed&Breakfast L'Arabesco) and a very lovingly prepared breakfast on the sun terrace. Located directly on the small village square of Pogerola and also highly recommended is the B&B Villa Maria (B&B Villa Maria), which, however, is usually booked up very far in advance.

Stay overnight in Amalfi

However, despite the somewhat higher prices, an overnight stay directly in Amalfi does have its appeal: as soon as all the day tourists have left in the late afternoon, it is much easier to guess why Amalfi has become so famous. And anyone planning a normal hiking holiday on the Amalfi Coast instead of a long-distance hike should stay overnight in Amalfi anyway. Pogerola is not sufficiently connected to the SITA bus lines for this purpose.

The B&B Villa Maria is very popular and therefore often already fully booked

Stage 3: Overnight stay

Most beautiful in the morning sun: the view from Casa Pendola makes you want to start the day! In the foreground the beautiful terrace.

For those who like it a little more central (Casa Pendola is just outside the village) and feel comfortable in family-run accommodation, we recommend the following B&B instead: Nido Verde. The grandfather lovingly helps to welcome guests in the afternoons, and breakfast is served on the terrace when the weather is nice. Bicycles are also available for rent.

Bed & Breakfast recommendations in Bomerano

Bomerano is a district of "Agerola" and has an interesting geographical position: Bomerano itself is relatively flat and almost plateau-like in terms of topography, but a few metres from the centre of the village the terrain drops steeply towards the Amalfi Coast.

The best place to watch this spectacle is from Casa Pendola, a bed & breakfast about 15 minutes above Bomerano ( Casa Pendola). The rooms are neat but not luxurious, but all have a terrace with a sensational view of Bomerano and the other parts of Agerola in good weather. Other highlights: the well-maintained garden has a beautiful pool and a terrace with lounge furniture, and homemade cakes are offered for breakfast.

The "Nido Verde" is centrally located in Bomerano and somewhat set back from the road.

Stage 4: Overnight stay

Spoilt for choice: expensive hotels in Positano or a cheap alternative near Colli San Pietro?

Stage 4 ends in Positano - one of the tourist hotspots of the Amalfi Coast. For today's overnight stay we have to decide: do we stay overnight in Positano and accept the higher prices there? Or do we continue with the SITA bus in the afternoon to "Colli San Pietro", from where stage 5 starts the next day and where the accommodation prices are much cheaper than in Positano?

Finding a good and at the same time affordable accommodation in Positano is very difficult and actually only possible with a lot of advance notice or a lot of luck: For a decent double room, you usually have to pay at least 150€ during the season. Worth a try is the very individual Positano Suite B&B with only one room (double room from 180€, Positano Suite B&B) or the family-run Casa Teresa with a great view over Positano (Casa Teresa).

"Colli San Pietro" is the exact opposite of Positano: the district of "Piano di Sorrento" is a loose collection of houses without a recognisable centre. The biggest highlight is the view of the Gulf of Naples - and of course the proximity to Sorrento as well as the Amalfi Coast. Nevertheless, there is a rich choice of decent to good hotels and guesthouses:

  • The Villevieille B&B (top picture) is located directly below the main road, but is still surprisingly quiet, which is due to the fact that the rooms are all on the side of the house facing the valley. The owner is not necessarily very cordial, but the rooms are neat. The breakfast terrace with a view of the Gulf of Naples is great.
  • The Antico Casale Russo (second picture) is a great choice in a historical ambience, as long as you don't stay there at the weekend: That's when wedding ceremonies regularly take place.
  • Right next to the SITA bus stop is the 3-star Royal Hills Hotel with air-conditioned rooms (Hotel Royal Hills).

Despite the lack of a centre, there are some restaurants in Colli San Pietro, e.g. Ristorante Zio Sam or Ristorante La Rosa (both with pizzeria).

We deliberately chose not to stay overnight in Positano on our hike and instead took the scenic hike up Monte Vico Alvano from Colli San Pietro in the morning before stage 5 (see Hike to Monte Vico Alvano).

The Antico Casale Russo is primarily designed for wedding celebrations - but it's also a great place to spend the night!
