Bottom Line

The charming and romantic Palazzo Ferraioli is a four-pearl hotel in the small city of Atrani with fantastic views of the ocean from rooms and the rooftop. Its 30 rooms are bright and colorful, with Pop Art on the walls; they include flat-screen TVs and minibars; higher category rooms have hot tubs. Amenities include a spa and a bar, and breakfast is included in room rates, but there's no real restaurant on the property or on-site parking. Travelers may want to compare rates at the nearby La Scogliera, which has charming rooms and beautiful public spaces.

Oyster Hotel Review

Palazzo Ferraioli


Charming and romantic hotel with stunning views of the city and ocean 

Palazzo Ferraioli was originally built in the 19th century as a private home for the Ferraioli family. Today, it’s a charming  hotel with a white facade complemented by green vines and lovely plants with a beautiful cliff backdrop and views of the ocean. Arrival at this hotel can be complicated as there’s no on-site parking and guests must brave a number of stairs to reach the hotel itself, which may be difficult for travelers with mobility issues. The hotel's interior has an airy Mediterranean style: white walls, wooden floors, and arches. There's also a number of outdoor patios with cabanas and a stunning rooftop terrace with lounge chairs and fantastic views. The hotel does have an elevator and hallways with striped, dizzying wallpaper. The breakfast room has a Pop Art vibe that's also found in the guest rooms, with striped purple walls, white tables and chairs, and large white hanging lamps. Overall, there’s something romantic to the hotel and its location, so it’s no surprise that it draws mostly vacationing couples.

Central location in the small town of Atrani, within walking distance of the beach 

The hotel can be found among a labyrinth of stairs and narrow walkways in the small town of Atrani, which overlooks the Tyrrhenian Sea. It’s easy to explore the town on foot, as most of the attractions are within a 15-minute walk at most. There are dining options in a square that’s just two minutes away, while the beach takes only four minutes to reach. Travelers can also visit the nearby town of Amalfi, a 20-minute walk from the property. The closest airport is the Costa d’Almafi Airport in Salerno which takes an hour and 10 minutes to reach by car. However, the Naples Airport is only 10 to 15 minutes farther by car.

Pop Art-style rooms with flat-screen TVs, minibars, and free Wi-Fi

Rooms at Palazzo Ferraioli are modern and colorful, with Pop Art influences and bold, patterned wallpaper. Each room is individually designed, though most come in vibrant hues of pink or green (with a few having chocolate-toned decor). Stand-out decorative touches include leather headboards, silk-screen-style prints of celebrities such as Liza Minnelli, and wooden floors. Most have lovely views of Atrani and the ocean, though a few have less than desirable views of nearby buildings. All rooms have air-conditioning, flat-screen TVs, minibars, and safes, and while Wi-Fi is free throughout the hotel, the in-room connections can be spotty. Some also have small hot tubs. Bathrooms are equipped with showers with waterfall showerheads, bidets, toiletries, and hairdryers. Note that rooms lack tea- and coffee-making facilities.

Spa, free breakfast buffet, bar, rooftop terrace, and free property-wide Wi-Fi

One of Palazzo Ferraioli's greatest features is its lovely spa with hot tubs, saunas, steam rooms, showers, and beauty and massage treatments. Note that it does cost a fee to use the wellness facilities if you aren't getting a treatment. Dining options are limited to a basic breakfast buffet of cereals, pastries, fruit, meats, and cheeses, plus eggs upon request, and there are no restaurant facilities for lunch and dinner. There is, however, a bar that provides a variety of drinks, which can be taken on the hotel’s rooftop terrace, furnished with loungers, tables, and chairs, overlooking the ocean. Wi-Fi is free throughout the property, but there's no on-site parking. Those arriving by car must park at a nearby lot (for a fee) and carry their luggage through narrow streets and stairs, or request a porter for help.
