We have never felt compelled to write a negative review until now. Hotel Palumbo has earned it. We booked a deluxe room with balcony. We arrived to a relatively small room on the entry floor, with access from the common seating area. The air conditioning unit was not operating and there was no balcony, only a relatively small window. After...

We stumbled by the hotel for lunch, both in an attempt to escape the unpleasant crowds lower down in the city (think major cruise ship in town for the day), and to explore the high-quality restaurants on the area we had been told about. The case of fresh fish that we saw a local fisherman deliver to the hotel made...

Had the most incredible experience. The staff are second to none; nothing was too much at any time of the day or night. The room was spectacular and the view alone would clear any stressful thoughts from your mind!

We recently stayed in Casa Palumbo (as opposed to the main rooms of the hotel). Rooms are very modern, spacious and well appointed with a very nice terrace with a view towards the water. Unfortunately the AC was not working in Casa Palumbo when we were there (apparently the power was not sufficient) so I would make sure that the...

We started our last Italian visit with a stay in Ravello, a very beautiful town on the Amalfi coast. Hotel Palumbo is in a stunning location. Our room was old fashioned and completely charming with a small balcony with full view of the coast. Service was completely professional and welcoming. Breakfast was bountiful and service personable and attentive. We had...

We visited Hotel Palumbo for a winery tour. I could not have been more pleased. The parking was convenient, and the hotel and grounds were absolutely beautiful.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Hotel still preserves reminiscences of the medieval structure of the original Palazzo Confalone built in the 12th Century. Other architectural and decorative elements were added in the 17th Century. The architecture of the building is in itself a mosaic of time. Consisting of five different levels, which have nothing in common with modern-concept storeys, the building has an irregular vertical structure - very similar to the original one - with added wings, a tower-like extra storey, and a maze of unpredictable openings, corners and corridors. A small flag-like sign hangs discreetly above the main door of Palazzo Confalone. Built in the 12th Century, in a suggestive spot of one of Ravello's little alleyways, the building protrudes on the street with a tower-like structure forming an arch, dotted with tiny loop-holes which were used as lookouts and defence posts in bygone - not very safe - days. A mixture of Moresque arches and ogives from the East. Precious, ancient Greek and Roman marble columns from Paestum and the Amalfi Coast. The Vuilleumiers' refined taste is particularly evident in the interiors of bedrooms and communal living rooms: each individual piece of furniture and decoration accessory belongs to the family home and all rooms and communal areas have multicolour ceramic floorings dating back to the 17th and 18th centuries. If glasses could speak, they would tell you about those timeless moments when one feels like sitting at the bar to look for lightness and extemporary peace. This ritual has also accompanied the stays of the many celebrities who sojourned at Hotel Palumbo. In 125 years, the "Don Pasquale" bar has "sipped" stories from the movies world, confessions from stars in the show-business, as well as melancholies of love, dreams of freedom, ideas for tales, and inscrutable silences. The architecture and colour scheme of the bar offer an original mix of the many atmospheres of Ravello. The hotel is named after Pasquale Palumbo, who, together with his Bern-born wife, opened the first Hotel Palumbo in Ravello in the middle of the 19th century. The building that housed the hotel was called Episcopio because it had been an Episcopal dwelling in the distant past. Since the early days, the hotel lodged illustrious guests from every corner of Europe. They were indeed attracted by the beauty of the surroundings but also by the fame Mrs. Palumbo, Elisabetta Von Wartburg, enjoyed in international circles of the time. Wagner himself came to Ravello because he had heard about this lady and left a signed thank you note for the hospitality received. Jessy Palumbo, daughter of Pasquale Palumbo and Elisabetta Von Wartburg, got married with Edwin Vuilleumier and the couple continued the family tradition by taking over the Hotel. Pasquale Vuilleumier was a man of Swiss origins but with the typical inflection of Neapolitan gentlemen. From his grandfather, on his mother's side, he had inherited the spirit of enterprise; from his father's side of the family he had absorbed a stern commitment to work. His clientele, won over by his congenial ways and unpretentious, elegant style, used to come back to Ravello to visit him as a friend, just like the illustrious guests of the early days had done with his predecessors. "This was his home. The hotel was his life: why not keep my father Pasqual's dream...My family's dream...My own dream alive? It was written that in the end my home and my hotel would become one and the same thing". Marco Vuilleumier ... more   less
