The rooms were clean and unbelievably spacious for Europe! Staff were most helpful about allowing us to store baggage as arrived off a very early flight and check- in was much later! The location was fine as you always have to climb stairs in Positano and one must be aware of this . The views were fabulous !!

This hotel offers many good things but some really awful things too. The views are amazing and the location is pretty good. About a 15 minute walk to the town centre and the beach. Offers wifi for free and most of the time it worked really well. Most of the staff were friendly and helpful but occasionally some of the...

The view from the room is fantastic. We found the staff to be helpful and welcoming. Breakfast is a disaster. We were paying about euro170 per night and I think this must have been the worst breakfast I have ever had and I have traveled to some strange places and stayed in unsavory hotels. I can provide you with a...

Not one to comment on here usually, but this has to be the worst place I have ever visited. I was a victim of theft at the hotel, and the attitude of the owner and staff was one of a wall of silence, stole a significant amount of money kept carefully in the bottom of a suitcase. This hotel must...

I was a bit afraid of this place based on some of the reviews I read on Trip Advisor. I am happy to report that my wife and I found this to be a great hotel. The staff were all very friendly and helpful. Our room had a fantastic view of the ocean and hillside. The balcony was good size...

I stayed here a couple summers ago and it was a nice stay. The staff are very friendly and the hotel is clean. Its not the nicest hotel in Positano but for the price it is very reasonable. The location isnt the best since it is near the top. to get to either of the beaches requires some walking but...

The location is very nice. The room was light, quiet and clean with a wonderful balcony and seaview. Not to overpriced. The staff helpful. The breakfast a bit on the simple side with an unworthy cappucino. Even if I was accused for 'overconsumption' of 6 small glasses of juice (it was actually 4 juice and 1 water after climbing over...

The owner family runs the hotel. They are rude and careless about any kind of customer happiness. Breakfast is terrible, every food they prepare is so bad, they put ruined apples that are wrinkled all over for breakfast with no shame and expect you to eat that! They charge for each little thing, they dont help you with the car...

Found this hotel on booking.com but eventually booked with them directly after emailing them about a discount mentioned on their website. The hotel is a family-run hotel, so it appears they prefer to have direct bookings, offering a small discount for paying in cash. Made sure in email that the room comes with a view. Pros: - Amazing view of...

the hotel was fine broadly. Of course it is far from the beach, you have to walk a lot. But the view is unquestionable. rather basic rooms, sheets and towels are very poor. The breakfast very regular, nothing special. basically the view is the key. Another issue is the attention. Apparently, the hotel is managed by a family. they were...
