Modern and design rooms very confortable. Nice service and people are freidly and looking to help. The breakfast is not up to the standard of the hotel.
Fantastic views and modern rooms Many steps up to the reception. Not suitable if you have walking difficulties.
Boutique hotel style with small number of rooms and breakfast included in price of the room. No exercise facility
Loved the location and the beds were amazingly comfortable. We will return. The hotel has its own beach but guests have to pay 25 euros to get a chair and umbrella. Seemed a little cheap to charge guests for beach access.
The views, especially from terrace. Great location! Fountain in front was not working, but everything else was beautiful.
The view was amazing - but this was after we paid an up charge to get a view with a balcony. The Sea View that was booked originally - you had to really stand on something to see it.
Absolutely everything! Staff were fantastic, food in the restaurant amazing. Buffet breakfast fantastic, especially sitting out on the terrace overlooking the spectacular view. They went above and beyond our expectations, highly recommend staying here!
Perfect view, perfect staff, perfect beach, perfect breakfast.
the staff, the bed, the view and the location for the cost the room was to small, no room to put your luggage or sit comfortable.
The hotel was spacious and restful. There were many guests staying but it was never at all crowded. All the staff were very pleasant and helpful. It is beautifully located and the flowers and plants are a major contribution to peace and enjoyment. Delicious, unhurried breakfasts on the terrace overlooking Amalfi town were memorable. We thought that the all white decor with little furniture and no colour was severe.
the building itself is gorgeous and so is the view!
different Radio doesnt work in the room. NZ$500 per night should be 5 star but not. All Italian TV. Only BBC in english. Sky do have english programs. Small 15 inch TV 50 ft away from viewing??NO Tea or Coffe/milk/ electric jug facilities like in 99% of hotels/motles in NZ. Not value for money. No service. Only if you ask for it. At the pool/ would you like another or food or is everything o'k. Only stay for one night just for the look.
Great accomidations. I was looking for comfort and a great view after touring Italy for two weeks. A place to relax. I found through research most hotels offer one or the other not both. Saraceno offered great views from the rooms up on the hill as well as great beach location. Food was good, bar open late till 12 midnight. If your looking for peach and quite this is the place. The cabs are expensive in Amalfi. Look into hotel shuttle. It is accomidating to use.
the castle looks so dramatic, particulary looking back up from the beach. I didnt expect the lovely gardens and pots of flowers on the balconies which really added to it. it was over our budget so we only stayed 1 night in partial seaview, but laying in bed I could see the ocean, and the stars. I would reccomend it even if its a bit out of your price range just stay one day its worth it!
the hotel is beautiful, staff and service outstanding
The hotel has a great location, and the free parking is a plus in this area. that is about it!!! They even charge your to use the internet, what first class, or like you rate it 5 star charges a guest to use the internet in 2010. You rated this hotel 5 stars, it is not!!! Maybe the location, but not facilities or amenities of a 5 star hotel. It does not even have a real blow dryer. you cannot use any electrical converters in the bathroom, and there are no mirrors in the bedroom. It has a small tv, real old, from a museum, the safe has a key, old fashion key, not electronic like a real safe, and it is inside the refrigerator, which means, every time you want to use the safe, you have to open the small refrigerator, which does not work when you leave the room, since you need to insert a key for the electricity to work inside the room. no robes, slippers, plastic cups... no proper hangers for your clothes. I would not recommend this hotel. Maybe as a 2 or 3 star
Everything was so perfect!!!! We would visit again!! No, everything was so well organized!!
overvew room. not comfortable hotel
The hotel staff, especially the reception staff were very helpful and expalined the whole layout etc of the hotel on arrival. To get a full picture of the hotel you have to view this from the sea which is breathtaking Location is isolated & the nearest main centre was a cab drive away. Courtesy buses were provided but times to & from hotel were limlited to early morings or early evening. The resturant staff & breakfast staff were not very helpful or freindly. In the evening we took a meal at the resturant. Once seated I noticed a smashed glass under the table, but the staff just shrugged their shoulders.
good beach , good service , location near Amalfi , good shatale , good food air condiation , and slow / small elevaetors
Everything, especially the view.
The location was amazing. Every view from every angle was beautiful. The dinning room staff was also great. The hotel staff (outside of the dinning room) couldn't have been less helpful or less knowledgeable. They could have also used a 24 hour menu.
Fantastic location, having superb views over Amalfi and its harbour. Good sunbathing facilities and access to swimming in its sea water pool or the sea. Good views from bedrooms as well as public rooms. Good variety in its restaurant. The staff were extaordinarily helpful and professional The standard rooms only have small balconies, some of which are enclosed. Neither your site or that of the hotel indicate this difference between standard and superior rooms.
We loved the fantastic ocean view. It was no luxury hotel by any means but nice & comfortable.
View, large rooms, great service The mildew on the walls and in bathroom
The location was exceptional. I loved being on the edge of the cliff. The ability to go down to the pool and/or swim in the Mediterranean sea was so exciting. We had probably the nicest room, end with the largest balcony it was perfect. We had rented a car and the signage from either direction was the best. The entrance (at the road level ) was unimpressive. But I don't think you can change that because the whole excitement of the hotel is the location on the cliffside. The distance into the main part of town was easily walkable and fun, although there was a shuttle service we didn't use it. Getting to the town of Almafi is not ideal if you need to use the ferry or bus (especially if its not high season). We had to take a taxi ride to Salerno for 100 euros in time to catch the train to Rome to make it to the airport in time. However we had time to take the ferry from Salerno to Almafi for 6 Euros each for 35 minutes, which was ideal and fun. (no worries about driving the coastline road.
There was a pool and access to the sea. Location. Timings of mini-bus shuttle service into town were not useful.eg.drop off for lunch but no pick up later.
great location, views, pool / ocean area. parking a huge plus. restaurant well run. i would definetly stay here again.
The views are some of the best we have ever seen from a hotel balcony anywhere in the world. The location is stunning
Hotel staff is very friendly and polite. We can see seaview from room.
The staff and service was nice. I liked the pool alot. The price for any hotel in Europe is very expensive for what you receive in the USA. I was surprised they did not have any pugs to convert US powered electronics to Italian (all other hotels we stayed at did). The walk from the hotel to Amalfi proper although not that far could be harzardous due to limited side walks on the windy street plus walk through the traffic tunnel. Needs shuttle servic
The view from our room and all over the hotel was incredible. We loved being very close to Amalfi (10 min walk) but not directly in town. The staff was very nice and attentive and knowledgeable. The pool decks built into the cliff were an amazing place to hang out for the day. The bed wasn't the most comfortable in the world but it was fine and made up for by the rest of the hotel
The attentive staff, location and facilities. N/A
The ambiance and decor are delightful - this place has a lot of character, and it's location is onvenient for Minori (though the attractions of this small village are limited mainly to its location). Parking is very difficult and the hotel's parking garage is very expensive and rather inconvenient to use. Our room was charming but extremely small and not very well laid-out. The toilet facilities were rather inconvenient. Under the circumstances, I think it represents rather limited value for money;
Staff helpful, room clean, good location in minori. Had to pay 20 euros per day to park the car. Wouldn't go half board next time as dinner was nothing special.
The location was excellent. Seaside and right in town for conveniences. Traveling with my 85 year old mother and she uses a wheelchair. This hotel was very accommodating for her. Nothing
Helpful staff. Good breakfast. Great location. Even though the hotel faces a busy street, when you close the french doors and shutters, it is very quiet.
Convenience to public transportation in a town full of steps. Lovely breakfast room with view and helpful in suggesting smaller, less touristy restaurants. Although on a busy street facing the harbor, my room was quiet at night, which was a bonus. I would go back.
Helpful staff Very basic accomodation for the cost
I stayed in one of superior double rooms. It was spacious and had beautiful view and a jacuzzi. Breakfast was fair, and I liked cappucino.
This Hotel was really beautiful : nice furnitures, typiacally italian. The terrasse for the breafast was great with the view on Amalfi and the sea
It is close to the beach and in the middle of town. The room had sea view, and the price was reasonable. New doors to the balcony kept the sun and noise outside, the room was totally dark at night so we slept very well. Breakfast at a beautiful terrace.
Location was great - the breakfast area overlooked Amalfi beach and the hotel was so close to the bus and ferry terminals. The room was spotlessly clean and staff were very friendly.
excellent location and facilities. quiet, comfortable, spacious and convenient. Helpful staff no complaints at all
friendly helpfull staff
The Breakfast The room was very small, poorly decorated, nothing like what was advertised on the site. There is a charge to use the beach which is tiny and parking was very exepensive. It is not a 4* hotel rating at all
the friendly Italian staff, sea views over the Amalfi coast where do l start ? there was no hot water every day, the only way to get it was to run the taps for 30minutes ...... on the day of the wedding (reason for being there) we had no water at all, the wife couldnt shower before and to make matters worse we had no water when we got back to wash our 11month old baby. Reception eventually told us they couldnt promise water to the 5th floor and had no other rooms !!!!! Friends of ours on the same floor paid the same for their room but had a much better room, they also demanded a bill reduction for the same water problem and got one, we didnt demand anything and got no reduction just a bottle of champagne. The pool and spa was very cold, unusable so. There hotel is a poor attempt at a 4 star.
The Reginna Palace Hotel was the most perfect place to stay on the Amalfi coast. It is situated in a very convenient location if arriving by bus from Salerno or from the towns to the west. We had booked a regular room and because the tourist season was still a week or so away they had put us in the most incredible room on the 5th floor (top)with a huge terrace looking out over the coast and sea. We truly were not expecting the old world charm and elegance the hotel and its staff had to offer and we wished we could have stayed longer than one week. The front desk staff were more than accommodating to assist in any questions or travel bookings and were full of helpful information. Daily breakfast on the poolside terrace was a highlight every morning and we looked forward to having that wonderful Italian coffee amidst the smell of jasmine and other flowers. The dining room staff made us feel first class. The hotel in itself is beautiful with peaceful gardens full of flowers and trellises cascading with wisteria and lemons. It is across the street from a wonderful beach and seawall promenade and shopping, dining and sightseeing are just steps out the door. Maiori is probably our favorite town on the Amalfi coast and our stay at the Reginna Palace Hotel confirmed a return visit.
The staff were so accomodating especially the receptionist Anna. The rest of the staff were so friendly even the maid was so helpful. The hotel staff made our stay so enjoyable the views were amazing and the breakfast was excellent.
It's location, especially the close proximity to the beach and a great hotel pool. The pool is a good size and deep with high and low diving boards. Beautiful tropical garden around trhe pool too. One staff member at front desk is truly excellent - most of the others are not multilingual and unhelpful. The view of the bay is fantastic. Hidden charges for beach use. Costly additional (but advertised) charges for parking. Scratch damage to vehilce while parked in hotel care. Very outdated decor in hotel. High cover charge for in-hotel dining. Advertised sound proofing is non existent and the surrounding area is very noisey.
Room size, cleanliness and breakfast in garden Not much English at reception, breakfast quite basic
Great Staff, lovely hotel, brilliant position, good food, nice pool. Nothing not to like about it! Can get a bit noisy if facing the main street.
this hotel is one of the very best in the amalfi coast region, i did a lot of research and booking.com was brilliant at getting me a room there as at first I was having trouble booking it myself. In fact booking.com was a little cheaper so dont even bother going direct. yes some of the reviews on the booking.com site I think were a little unfair. It is excellent value for money in my opinon.
Everything, from the moment we arrived, they look after you but do not fuss you or bombard you with information. It is so relaxing, and it is in the very best position in maoiri, especially for the view from the front rooms.
Receptionist was very very helpful and nice. Sorted out taxi's and gave very good information. Room cleaned every day and hotel was well kept. All staff welcoming Pool was salt water (maybe to be expected being right by the sea) and this was not state. Also not heated so was a little bit cold on some days.
Very cental. Easy access to boats for tours.
location was good,sea wiev balconies perfect. breakfast was poor,old fashion rooms but clean.Don't go there in November because all restaurants closed.
The location was fantastic and the room was large. The staff at the reception desk were very helpful. The breakfast buffet had the same things every day. Some variety would be nice.
The staff were extremely friendly and helpful, the view from the hotel over the marina was soothing and the town center was a 5 min walk along the prominade.
Excellent location in Amalfi - close to amenities, restaurants, boats and buses. Staff particularly helpful. A comfortable hotel. We would definitely go back and met a number of 'returners' which speaks volumes! Breakfasts could have been more exciting, but were ample. One suggestion - useful to have chairs on the balconies of rooms?
The ambience of the hotel is really homely and unique. The bed was more comfortable than bed at home. The view from terrace at Breakfast (which was hearty) was awesome. The free internet was appreciated. No complaints, everything was great. Maybe just provide a more detailed map to guests.
Nice view of the ocean and Amalfi coast. It was a bit difficult to find the location by car. continental breakfast was only average.
close proximity to the centre of town and bus terminus. View from our balcony and window over the small harbour. Menu changed every night. No
Hotel staff were very friendly and helpful. Advice regarding day trips etc. was freely given and time was taken to help with our queries. The night staff were excellent and a credit to the hotel. While the hotel was clean and I do appreciate that it is in an expensive area, it is relatively old fashioned and overall the value for money was not very good. In recessionary times I feeel that there is a need for all hotels to look at these matters and reduce prices. The Amalfi coast hotels are not immune to this fact.
This is a very nice 3 star hotel, situated in a 5 star location! You couldn't ask for a more beautiful place. Only one gripe! The breakfast, although a variety was offered, it never differed in the week we stayed. I can get very bored of ham & cheese, cerals and bread rolls.
The lady who owns the hotel is lovely, always willing to help with any enquiries. Very clean and location was pretty good too.
We liked location of this hotel, good relation between staff and guests. We didn t the weather and rates, because the wether was bad and the rates were high/
Location was good There was no signage to identify the hotel and there is no internet.Breakfast was very average.
The guesthouse was really centrally located, very clean and the room was a good size and very comfortable. The staff were friendly and helpful. I would stay there again. The hotel can only be accessed by climbing some steep stairs, and we didnt get any help with our luggage.
Brand new, friendly staff no sidewalks made walking to main hotel dangerous
Everything Better english speaking reception
Location was close to the beach and amenities. Hotel was quite noisy and the walls were thin. Bed was uncomfortable and rooms weren't very stylish.
The room was great, high ceilings with a balcony and What a view!! Staff was very helpful in how to see the local area by providing a bus schedule and directions. The great breakfast was on a lovely balcony looking over the sea. Short walk to the city center. Though pricey we definately recomend the resturant across the street. The mattress and pillows were poor quality. We had no problem using the bus from the Salerno train station to the hotel, but if you're not public transportation savy be prepared to spend a lot on a taxi.
Wonderful sea view with two big balconies. Rooms were clean quiet and spacious. Good location as well
We were delighted with the professionalism of the staff and its services. The employees went out of their way to ensure that all of our needs were looked after.The breakfast was excellent. The location & view from this hotel were exceptional. We would be pleased to return to this hotel but would reserve a standard room in the refurbished section of the hotel. Our rooms were quiet & very clean.
food was lovely.views were amazing Staff most unpleasant, very unaccomodating, whenI asked why mini bar was empty I was told to get my own drinks at the bar. When I complained there was no iron, was told to come down and collect one at reception but that the hotel did not possess an ironing board. When I complained that there were ants in my room , there was no apology, I was just told a maid would spray them. Bar was closed every time we went to go for a drink.
staff was very friendly and hotel was nice and well situated for our holiday
Nice Residence, beautiful sea view, close to the amaizing beach, atractive roads, kind staff. Residence car park-mentioned on webside that parking is free, but after booking there was announcment that we have to pay for parking 20 Euro per day. Pleas check before booking- by calling to residence- if parking is free or not ....
View from the balcony and terrace was truly amasing! Room was spacy enough, with modern TV (10 music channels!). Liked private beach (10 EUR for two persons per day). They gave us superior room instead of standart with no extra charge. Didn't like archaic conditioner for making too much noise at nights. Room is pretty ascetic, with wooden shutters and no carpet on the floor. Ants crowling around both room and bathroom. By the way there is no bath in bathroom - only shower. Breakfast is quite poor, without hot meals and meat. In general, it looks like 3*, but with really nice view and SKY TV.
thismust be one of the best hotels italy... an experience!
The views were amazing, the rooms were spacious and the pool area made the holiday, being able to jump right into the sea from the platform was great. Was very expensive for the area, we checked out other places and felt like they would have been better value for the money.
Hotel practically built-in to the rock, has several splendid terraces over viewing gorgeous Amalfi coast. Booking of sea view room is highly recommended. Good and various breakfast, friendly staff, very convenient deep water swimming area. Nothing to complain.
everything. beautiful, great staff, wonderful food, and those views! no
Beautiful location, lovely old fashioned luxury hotel with amazing views. Great staff, large room and big bathroom. Very much worth the money.
The location The staff is not very helpful, some times slightly arrogant
The staff was incredible No complaints
Wonderful Hotel Santa Catarina! We stayed 5 years ago on our honeymoon and this time it was just as wonderful Fantastic staff, fabulous views - pure luxury. Just one complaint the drinks were horrendously expensive!
Impeccable service. courteous, professional and helpful staff; nothing was too much trouble. The hotel is beautifully located with fabulous views and you can park in front!! Noisy and uneven heating (I suppose it works better as air conditioning)
The staff were outstanding, helpful and very pleasant. They made our stay most pleasurable. Our view was a little crowded out by a large terrace interfering with our vista.
The view and vistas were great The comfort of the bed was awful. We stayed in room 152 and the bed was hard and sagged in the middle. It is hard to understand how a hotel as eloquent and upscale as this has beds that should be in a hotel for half the price. Upgrade your beds.
It was one of the most interesting hotel set ups I have had. The hotel was built into a cliff so there was beautiful views throughout. The staff could have had more "life"
Location of the hotel is wonderful. It is like a dream. The only problem is the mosquitoes or small bugs that bite. Hotel management should leave some repellent in the room before any client request.
The location and views are outstanding Food in restaurant is mediocre. The "King SIze" bed in the junior suite is, in fact, two single beds moved together - not the same thing at all.
great location, wonderful views of sunsets
Fabulously located right on the cliff overlooking the Amalfi coastline yet far enough removed from the crowds to feel as if it your very own piece of heaven. Staff were very friendly, especially the barman and the restaurant staff. The terrace overlooking the bay was the perfect place for sundowners! Particularly liked being able to swim off their beach and sunbathing platform. We had excellent meals here, the pasta with seafood baked in foil was the best ever! Food was not overly expensive as some other reviewers had mentioned. Lifts that transported you down through the rock from the hotel to the beach below have to be experienced! I felt very safe even though I really don't like heights as the lifts were modern and enclosed. A minor gripe, because the place and the people were so lovely.....Soft mattress toppers and soft pillows would go a long way towards a more comfortable sleep! Our room had a balcony from where we could hear the sea on the rocks below as we drifted off. A softer bed would have been bliss!
Everything - we visited the hotel to celebrate our 20th wedding anniversary & were not disappointed. The scenery & location was perfect. The hotel staff were fantastic throughout our stay ; the local food & wine were excellent. The best endorsement for the hotel is to say that we intend to return next year ; am looking forward to it already. Nothing ; however beware if you do not like climbing stairs as there are quite a few throughout the hotel.
Fine kinds from number, restaurant and a terrace both very attentive and benevolent personnel No
A beautiful location, conveniently situated between Amalfi and Positano with a service-minded staff. Good restaurant and nice public spaces. Not suitable for wheelchair access.
The view, the pool and the friendly staff
Good location, nice staff and a lovely boutique feel. Good location, nice staff and a lovely boutique feel.
view from balcony
The staff were very helpful and the location of the hotel was ideal. We also enjoyed the breakfast provided. They had a good selection of breakfast items (both quantity and quality) and excellent service.
Location, view from terrace Early morning road noise
Everything was perfect! Very comfortable.
the staff was amazing and made our stay incredible. The closeness to everything downtown was also a huge plus. it is noisy over a main street and has bottles breaking as the city recycling bins are just around the corner and picked up at 5:30am every day.
The views from the terrace at breakfast. Was extremely disappointed with this hotel having read good reviews of same in advance of booking. It was not clear that this hotel is very small, more of a boutuque family run hotel with few services, basic rooms. Rooms were not spacious and were very small. This was the last hotel we stayed at on the amalfi coast and by far the most disappointing and the least value for money, completely overpriced! Would classify it as more of a budget/backpackers than a 4 star hotel. We booked this hotel as we wanted three days of rest and relaxation at the end of our holiday and the website showed decking with loungers etc. Upon check in we were directed to a beach down the street where we were obliged to pay for loungers.
nothing Huge noise from air conditioning which is unnecessary for outside temperature of 15 degree celcius.
Everything was fantastic. The staff was courteous, the lodging was fabulous, and the proximity to everything you want and need in Amalfi is the best. Absolutely not.
central location building site in front of hotel
Staff is really nice but the place needs work. we had ants in the room, safe didn't work in the room. the staff doesn't speak any english there was mold on the AC. the bed was uncomfortable the water didn't run properly. I wish we spent more money and stayed somewhere else. It was our honeymoon too
The view from our room was absolutely stunning. We enjoyed sitting on our own terrace and watching the boats as well as the Amalfi Coast. Also, the staff was extremely helpful and friendly. No, we thought it was a very good value for the money.
Loved the room and the location, tho a bit out of the way, i liked that about it. Had own private beach so didn't have to go to public beach which was always way crowded. Loved the terraces and the views. A lovely place and recommend to all. Would have been nice to have a small refrigerator in the room due to it being out of the way. It would have helped to have some snacks since the hotel did not have full time restuarant.
Great views from the rooms and parking is worth its weight in gold in this area, being in between the "main" hubs in the area Positano and Amalfi was a bit more relaxed and well positioned to visit either.
relaxe and look around in the area No
The extremely pleasant and multilingual staff worked tirelessly to ensure our stay a positive experience. Our room was spotlessly clean each day, the size and condition of the room surprisingly good, and the large balconies overlooking the Mediterranean were incredible. Due to availability at the end of the season, they upgraded us to the mini-suite at no charge. This hotel exceeded our expectations in every way. nothing.
View Location a bit far from activity
The staaf was very kind' The rooms are big and comfortable, The view marvelousץ
The staff was helpful and friendly, location excellent, only 5 minutes from the free beach (approximately 150 steps). Our room had sea view (it was a superior room) which was beautiful, very much worth the price we paid. Breakfast was excellent, not just sweet things, but fresh vegetables and fruits, and bread.
The free parking was very nice since it is difficult to park in the area.The local bus was easy to use to visit nearby towns. The hotel was very quiet at night and the rooms spotless. The views from the rooms were spectacular.I definitely would go back. The only down side was the hotel didn't have a restaurant for dinner. But the hotel staff was very helpful in suggesting local restaurants. They even came to pick us up and brought us back to the hotel after dinner free of charge.
Cleanliness No Wi Fi Internet access
location 's very nice. Hotel's restaurant by the sea was very romantic. you can see the sea from room's window. Hotel's interior and exterior were also very very nice. a porte-cochere man was excellent!!
Great atmosphere, spectacular views and good service.
Location is spectacular, excellent staff service, unique pool situation with access to the sea. Beautifully clean, historic rooms. Great atmosphere and the restaurant food was wonderful (and the view amazing). Of particular note were the wonderful staff, all helpful, cheerful and genuinely 'sympatico' and appeared truly pleased to help us enjoy our stay. I would highly recommend the hotel for a relaxing, peaceful break and from which to explore wonderful Amalfi. It was recommended to me by a friend and Hotel Luna exceeded my expectations. If for no other reason, stay here for the pool! One very small thing, they need to provide more towel/clothes hooks or rails in the bathroom for hanging towels, swimsuits and beach clothes!
Superb location with stunning sea views from our room. Very good breakfast buffet. Helpful and friendly staff. Good facilities including a great cloistered open air sitting area in the middle of the hotel. Limited choice of dinner menu options though food was pretty good. We stayed out of seaon so it may well be that in the high season they offer a greater choice. Good pool though the general area around it would benefit from a general update.
It's location is superb. The views from both public and private rooms are spectacular. The staff is excellent and anticipates needs. It's ambience - converted from a convent dating to 1222 - is wonderful. Shower curtain.
Beautiful place with great service. Bathroom was in need of an update but functioned fine and was clean.
Everything is great!
Really everything about Luna appeals but the family service and the location along with the history and charm of the building appeals most
Our room had a stunning view of the coastline. The food was excellent and staff were very helpful. The restaurant 'Ristorante la Torre Saracena' across from the hotel has terrible food especially for the price and the service is weak...
We can be satisfied of wonderful scenery in Amalfi from among room in a hotel. It was a simple actually room only in the window though said that it would prepare the room where the view with the terrace was good when confirming it by telephone. It had time sad not to accept at all though May also was transmitting in the meaning of the confirmation.And It was made to pay 20 Euro higher than the amount of money confirmed by telephone. It seems not to have a too good impression for the Japanese.
