It is not easy to find - but it is worth the effort. Most of Amalfi is closed to traffic unless you are a guest of one of the hotels, and even then, it is open only few hours every day. I was lucky enough when I got there to be able to drive through. The narrow street has a traffic light to accommodate the 2-way traffic, and no real option to stop on the way. So you simply keep on driving till you get to the first parking building which happens to be the right one for this hotel (and probably serving few more; it is near a red building). Parking is quite expensive, but this is not different from other places in Amalfi.
Once you parked, just ask people in the street for directions, as otherwise it is hard to see the small sign leading to the building. The elevator in the building is one of the old ones - an experience that took me back in time :)
The room was spacious and luxurious (with a Jacuzzi), good WiFi, comfortable bed and a safe. This hotel is not on the beach front, so don't expect see view from your room, but there is a great place on the roof if you want to enjoy the view anytime of the day. The plus about the location is that is relatively quiet and very close to the main Amalfi square and the beach.
All of the people I met there were extremely nice, spoke English and made me feel at home. Breakfast is quite standard in Italian terms. One thing about Amalfi in general - it is practically impossible to sleep after 7 (unless you are in a distant hotel) - the church bells ring every 15 minutes starting from 7am till 10pm every day. Plan accordingly :)
