Residence Le Villette
- What's Included
If you are middle aged and from UK, Germany, USA or Nordic then simply just avoid this place as it is not up to any reasonable standard for us discerning types.No fan or airconGrotty outside/public areasUltra basic interiorNasty beds and pillowsNo sound insulation: listen to your neighbours weeing and marvel at their capacity for storing bodily fluids.Parking is terribly tight, you risk damage to hire cars by using it.We took a punt on 3 cheap nights but left after 2. We got what we paid for in relation to the other hotels in Ravello. Ravello itself is lovely and not too touristy at all and with a few great restaurants.
Just returned from an awesome vacation in Ravello. Residence Le Villette is located in a very handy part of Ravello. It is close to everything from the cafes and main piazza and transportation. The residence is well kept and very clean. We were lucky that the weather was great - hot during the day when we were out and cool at night which was perfect for sleeping. As there is no air conditioning it would be an issue in the hotter summer months. That is my only negative. The pool is great and there is a rooftop patio to lay out in the sun. The apartments are spacious with a small kitchen, a fridge, balcony and the shower was very good. Keep in mind that it is an apartment and not a hotel so you are not getting maid service or fresh towels. The elevator is supposed to work until midnight though a couple of nights it stopped working at 11:30 which was a bit annoying. It really is a great base for seeing the Amalfi Coast. The local bus is cheap 1.2 euros each way to Amalfi where you can then catch a ferry to check out the other towns. Ravello has wonderful restaurants and not touristy like Amalfi town or Positano. I highly recommend this property and would definitely go back. If it had air conditioning it would get 5 stars.
I'll be totally honest...... When we arrived at the apartment, we spent the first half an hour googling nearby hotels because we didn't want to stay. First impressions were not great and did put a damper on our arrival. The tiny dirty lift with an awful smell to take you up to the balcony to access the rooms, the outside seemed relatively dirty with a constant smell of gas? and the room seemed clean but also very outdated. The price is exceptionally cheap for a reason, you really do get what you pay for. Pay more and stay elsewhere.We will be returning to Ravello next year but sadly will not be back here again.
We really enjoyed our stay here, sure the other reviews are correct in that the lady who looks after the place can't speak much English - but what do you expect your off to a foreign country?!! - Some people should just stay at home.The room are basic, with no air con, but are very very clean - and have a great view of the valley. We did struggle the first night due to the lack of air con, but soon got use to it. The swimming pool is small, but always clean and rarely busy. There is also a rooftop with sunbeds and a great view - lovely place to have an evening drink. The funny thing about some of the reviews you may read, which say pay more stay elsewhere, is they haven't stayed anywhere else to compare it too. Our friends stayed in another hotel, and regularly visited our apartment to escape their hotel, which was packed to the rafters around the pool. I'd personally recommend this place to anyone, sure its basic, but that's why its the price it is.
We travelled here as two couples for a week and had adjoining ground floor rooms. The space was great, and we all loved our outdoor terrace. It was great to have a kitchenette for meals and the apartment was quite large. It was a great location, and once we figured out that the elevator takes you to the lower road (right by Da Nino pizza) and a short walk into the town square. The location was perfect, and the apartment was quite sufficient, and we loved our time in Ravello. The cost was very reasonable and very comfortable. It was great to hear the church bells, the donkeys, turkeys, roosters and dogs!
