Lonely Planet review
This former convent was founded by St Francis in 1222 and has been a hotel for some 170 years. Rooms in the original building are in the former monks’ cells, but there’s nothing poky about the bright tiles, balconies and seamless sea views. The newer wing is equally beguiling, with religious frescoes over the bed. The cloistered courtyard is magnificent.
Our independent authors have visited Hotel Luna Convento and selected this as one of our recommended hotels in Amalfi.
