    The view from our balcony was fantastic and the staff very friendly. Dinner was very good and was not too high price.

    The bed was not comfortable but got sleep despite this;

    The service at GHE was the best I have ever experienced. The staff was very friendly and they all would know your name. They were always ready to help you out. I needed to write some documents in Italian and the woman at the front desk was eager to help me put my words into Italian. The accommodations were clean and all the rooms overlook the sea. The shuttle service to the beach and to Amalfi was perfect.

    Maybe they could expand the free Wi-Fi coverage to more than just the lobby.

    Superb

    Our second time in Grand Hotel Excelsior, everything was perfect as always it is, especially the staff ... We love Amalfi and Grand Hotel Excelsior...

    A hair raising drive to get up to the hotel. Amazing views of Amalfi. Nice big room with sitting area and balcony. Good sized bathroom. Breakfast buffet varied and good service. Free shuttle to Amalfi and back, following a timetable supplied by reception, as parking was difficult this was very useful.

    Limited choices for dinner at the hotel, three course set menu, not very interesting and expensive. Warnings about putting any of own drinks or food in Mini bar, if found the mini bar would be locked and emptied. Only cheap,plastic tumblers in room, no glasses. Bar prices expensive and a 3 euro charge for ice to your room.

    Fabulous

    Hotel's exterior doesn't look promising but when you are inside you will be impressed with a panoramic view overlooking a see (all rooms have this view). Restaurant has an outside spacious terrace. Service during breakfast and dinner was very good.

    Do not agree to stay in lower part of hotel (two elevators down). Rooms are bigger but with "smell" and without a "view".

    Being a Hilton honours member I am fully aware of the high quality of their facilities. The location of the hotel was ideal to explore Palermo till late at night without any inconvenience.

    The view from our room was spectacular. Also, we were very well received when we arrived. A lady at reception took the time to explain how everything worked. It was very appreciated.

    The schedule of the bus that took us into town and back to the hotel had very strange hours and wasn't very convenient. Also, our bed was the most uncomfortable bed we've ever slept in. Time to change the mattresses????

    Superb

    5 wtar view, 5 star service and friendliness, all for3.5 Star price. Multi-language- speaking friendly helpful classy staff, breath-taking views, convenient base for wxploring, pool, beach, excellent breakfast. And loved Antoni! And especially loved that because I booked through Booked.net, had free use of he private beach, hich I used each of my five days in Amalfi. Everyone else had to pay!

    Pretty poor pillows, hard bed. No tea/coffee making facilities in room. Otherwise, perfetto!

    Far enough out of town to be away from the bustle, so it was very peaceful but close enough with good transport to get to town as you wished.

    The view is amazing and the setting is very romantic. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. Great shuttle service to Amalfi.

    Internet connection is only available in the lobby area and was not consistent. We experienced a lot of trouble connecting to it.

    Very good

    The hotel is outdated in terms of its decor, but the place is clean and the breakfasts are pretty diverse (which is saying a lot for an Italian hotel)

    Sadly there is only a wifi area in the reception lobby, and not in the rooms etc. The shuttle service can be unreliable, and the cost of a taxi form town is 35 to 40 Euro!

    Superb

    Location, views, bus service to Amalfi. Pool and beach staff were very helpful, especially Anni.

    The pillows were uncomfortable and one extra would have been useful. Somewhat overpriced. Ants in room around computer we brought in.
