We started in Rome then Sorrento and finished it in Positano. I searched many hotels and and bed and breakfast and We chose Hotel. Bougainville for a few reasons the main one is street level. We are quite capable to get around but we are not young so that was a great benefit. Giovanni was in touch with us while we were still in Sorrento and sent a driver to pick us up and brought us to the Hotel Bougainville. Once there Giovanni was very helpful with recommendations and calling in reservations at a some amazing restaurants. The breakfast at Hotel Bougainville was very special the staff made sure you got exactly what you asked for and more they were very friendly and helpful. When it was time to go back to the airport in Rome Giovanni arranged a driver and made sure he accepted a credit card payment. I recommend Hotel Bougainville and the chance to meet Giovanni to everyone!

Giovanni and the rest of the staff were beyond amazing! The room was super clean and had an amazing view of Positano. The staff was super friendly and so helpful with everything (recommendations for dinner, views, what to do etc.). Giovanni even helped us when we went to sorrento and messaged us on WhatsApp with recommendations! 10/10 stay, would recommend to everyone, and we’ll be back for sure!

This hotel was perfect for me as a solo traveler, and I imagine would be lovely for couples as well. Had a sea view deluxe room with a balcony and it was stunning. 5 minutes walk to the beach, very comfortable room, free breakfast, and a hotel staff that went above and beyond. Truly, the staff is what makes the hotel deserve more than 5 stars in my opinion. For the price, location and amenities you’re getting well beyond the value.

I visited with my friend who had already stayed at this great hotel before - and I can totally see now why she wanted to come back! The staff at this hotel are all amazing and became like family. They were all so attentive to us and made sure we had the best experience possible. The manager Giovanni is amazing - he helped set up so many activities for us in Positano! Our room was so beautifully kept and due to the pandemic, we were so lucky to have breakfast served to us on our balcony. It was a perfect Italian summer getaway. Shout out to Guisy who also made our stay awesome! I would highly recommend this wonderful hotel to anyone who plans to visit Positano. The location is close to the beach as well as popular restaurants in the area. A huge thanks to all the staff at Hotel La Bougainville!

After a month leaving this hotel it’s time to write a well deserved review Room are clean, staff is marvelous(S/o to Giussy and Giacomo that were really available if we needed anything) I must say I was quite disappointed when I discovered my room, quite small for the price paid but the staff got us in the balcony room wich was well worth the price ! Thanks again :) Breakfast was the best we got in Italy and we visited about 10 cities so it tells a lot ! We booked a capri cruise and everything was perfect(staff on the boat is here to help !) Special note for disabled people : The hotel is the nearest you can be to the beach but there´s still like 10 steps and it’s a little steep so make sure someone can help you or pay a positano porter to get you directly to your hotel when I see videos on ytb that’s literally nothing compared to the hustle of going through 100 steps or so. Don’t let your disability stop you ! Go for it and discover the Amalfi coast
