Set in the quiet seaside town of Maiori, the Hotel Pietra di Luna is in a fantastic position for exploring the Amalfi Coast’s attractions. The friendly staff get great reviews, too.
The Hotel Pietra di Luna makes a great holiday base – it’s just a couple of minutes’ walk from the centre of Maiori, and a 20-minute bus ride from the postcard seaside town of Amalfi. Just across the road is a tree-lined promenade that skirts the seafront. The sand-and-pebble beach lies just the other side – the hotel has its own private patch where you’ll find sunloungers and parasols.
Looks-wise, it’s a typical seaside hotel – a 5-storey whitewashed affair with stripy awnings. It’s set on a roomy sun terrace, next to a long, rectangular swimming pool and a children’s pool.
Inside, there’s a cosy bar kitted out with retro Sixties-style orange chairs and comfy light-green sofas. Dark-wood panelling, a chandelier and a corniced ceiling give it a classic air. The dining room has a similar feel, too. Breakfasts are help-yourself buffets, while evening meals are waiter service with menus of typical Italian dishes.
Start your day with a buffet breakfast. Snacks and light lunches are available on the Belvedere Terrace, dinner is waiter service, with an à la carte menu available for you to pick a delicious meal from.
Just returned from a week at this hotel. We had booked two single rooms but we were upgraded to double rooms with large balconies and side sea views. The rooms were well furnished with modern bathrooms, tv, safes and hairdriers. Bathrobes and slippers and other toiletries were provided and rooms cleaned and towels changed daily. We felt so relaxed as the staff are so helpful and friendly. Particular thanks to the bartender and our waiter! The food was lovely plenty of variety and so tasty! Maiori makes a great base for exploring the amalfi Coast. The local bus stops outside the hotel and we visited all the "must see" tourist spots and still spent time by the hotels very clean pool! Maiori is full of character and has a long sandy beach and promenade perfect for an after dinner stroll. We would be more than happy to return!More

Four stars for the location, three stars for the hotel
You can't beat the location of this hotel! It is directly across the street from the beach and within walking distance to restaurants, bars and shopping.
Now for the hotel............the hotel was built in 1973 and still has that 70's feel to it. There is a small bar in the lobby, a large outdoor pool and a very nice outdoor patio to have a cocktail or espresso. Our room was a lovely corner room with an extra large balcony. The room was clean and large with beautiful tile floors. The bathroom was small and outdated but adequate. We were happy with everything until we sat on the bed, it was like sitting on cement! The mattress was so bad we had difficulty sleeping. Since we were part of a large tour group, everyone was complaining about the mattresses, it wasn't just in our room.
Would love to someday come back to this hotel, but only if they replace their mattresses!More

Single Supplement Accomodation
All single rooms are by no means "delux" as advertised in their brochure...Just returned with a 4 Night stay at this hotel, was given a box room with a double bed, the Manager was very rude and refused to change our rooms having paid an hefty "single supplement"....I have taken photos to show...will not recommend this hotel to anyone.More
This place spoiled my holidayand my memories!!
I had booked this coach tour and looked forward to returning to the Amalfi coast area as I had spent some wonderful holidays there with my husband before he died.
I arrived at this hotel on the evening of the 5th October, for a 4 night stay. My first impression was pleasant until I reached my room, situated at the back of the hotel, it was a dark and dreary box room. I had to have all the lights on in the room and even then the lighting was inadequate.
The room contained a collection of mismatched furniture, a very hard double bed, a desk, a minibar, a chair and a wardrobe. The room was badly arranged and so small that I had to lift my suitcase over the bed to get to the wardrobe because it was impossible to push it through the gap between the bed and the desk. There was also nowhere to store the case. In the end I left most of my belongings in the case, which was not satisfactory. On the last day as I was lifting my case back over the bed, I actually cut my foot on a piece of sharp metal sticking out from the leg of the desk. At some point someone had tried to cover it with a piece of tape!!
The bathroom was equally outdated and shaped more like a corridor!! There was a strange box-like structure around the shower tray, fortunately I am fairly agile otherwise I would have had difficulty using it. Water leaked out from the base every time I took a shower and soaked the bath mat. I also dreaded using the shower as the temperature constantly fluctuated, from the required temperature to freezing cold and then to scalding hot.
The food served in the restaurant was fine and the staff there were very pleasant and helpful unlike the hotel manager.
A number of us had similar problems with our rooms, for which we had paid a considerable amount in single supplement. We spoke to the manager about the unsatisfactory rooms. He was very rude and were told that is all we could expect at his hotel and he did not have anymore rooms available.
Therefore I would advise anyone travelling alone, even with a coach party to avoid this hotel like the plague. If you are a single traveller you are just not welcome there.More
