Hotel Savoia
Ranked #13 of 38 Hotels in Positano
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 8 March 2012

We began our 2 week honeymoon in Italy in Positano and stayed at the Hotel Savoia for 5 nights during August in one of their Junior Suites. Positano was a gem and the entire stay was the best segment of our honeymoon. It was the only hotel that actually had one big king size bed (all the other hotels we stayed at in Italy had two twin beds shoved together).

The hotel is in a great location, right next to the main Piazza and the stroll down to the beach. The staff were always pleasant and helpful - had champagne waiting for us in the room, informed us of good restaurants, helped us book our day trip to Capri, and explained the beach towel rule to us!

Breakfast at the hotel was wonderful, there is a little cafe near the hotel that is great for a light lunch (salads or panini with fresh juice) or grab a pizza at one of the restaurants closer to the beach with some limon soda and head to the beach beds for a day of lounging and swimming! For dinner, we highly recommend Medditeranneo (wonderful staff who sing through your entire dinner, get the seafood rissotto!).

I would agree that the wireless wasn't ideal (can only be used on the breakfast floor) but hey, you're on vacation - no need to be attached to your devices! I would also say that unless you bleed money and love high fashion, Capri isn't worth the visit. The sea is definitely a deeper shade of blue at Capri and the grottos are a lot of fun, but Capri itself is overcrowded and moreso about swanky yachts and shops. In hindsight, we were happy as clams in beautiful Positano, which really is the gem of the Amalfi Coast.

The hotel is a short walk down to the beach. We settled on ti as it had good reviews and wasn't that expensive relative to Positano standards. We spent a night and day here and 2 on Capri and these 3 days were the most expensive of our whole trip between restaurants and hotels. We had a balcony with an awesome view. The staff was friendly and told us how to get to the beach etc. I accidently spilled some wine on our bed and gave them a heads up as we were checking out, they appreciated it and didn't give us a hard or charge us extra. The one complaint I did have is that we had some issues with connecting to their wireless, I think it only worked on the first floor and in the breakfast room. Overall though a great htoel in Positano. Be sure to take the correct bus stop though (confirm with the hotel). We took the first stop and I had to carry both our bags down countless stairs and hundreds of feet in elevation when it was very hot out. I was not pleased, please learn from my mistake.

Hotel savior was a fantatic place to stay in positano-it was in a fantatic location not far from the beach. Our room was spacious and had a lovely view from the balcony. The service was fantastic- family run hotel with a guaranteed smiles! Thanks for a great stay. P.s eat at bar Bruno just up from the hotel-very delicious!

We had the opportunity of staying at this hotel and found it to be quite a find.
The view from the balcony is magnificent and the balcony itself is quite spacious.
The hotel was well maintained and the staff very helpful. The price was quite reasonable for this area and there are a lot of little boutiques to visit in the town. The hotel is well situated and there are many shops and restaurants nearby.
We had visited Capri, before arriving to Positano and we found Positano to be much lovelier and much cheaper. I would suggest not to stay overnight in Capri, and to only make a day trip to Capri, as the hotels there are very expensive and Positano is just as nice, if not nicer.
The mother and daughters at Hotel Savoia were very helpful and gave us some useful information about the town itself.
I would definitely return to this hotel and this charming town.

We visited Positano in October and chose the Savoia as a treat as the whole Amalfi Coast does not do cheap hotels as a rule. Service was very good on arrival, pointing us to the parking garage just down the road, NOTE Before the hotel on a long one way road so park before checking in or its a 15 minute round drive back again, or if its late in the evening and quiet just reverse like the Italians would do!
It has a nice location a few minutes walk down to the beach thru shopping/restaurant streets, free wifi (with code) in the comfy lounge area which is very rare in Italy, a brilliant breakfast, in a very nice restaurant with great breakfast selection (best of trip). Rooms were spacious and the bathroom was clean and tidy and relatively modern. Only downside but we found this in most hotels on the trip was the traffic noise, This was off season and it was loud, so in season it must be very bad.
Overall the best hotel of our trip but it was the most expensive so you would expect that.

Room Tip: Maybe higher up is quieter and maybe further around the road corner and the entrance side of hotel h...

This hotel is everything we wanted. Great location, wonderful room, pretty view of the city and water. We were so glad we decided to stay there and would definitely stay again. I would recommend this hotel to anyone!

We stayed at Hotel Savoia for a full week. Three couples in three adjoining rooms. The experience was exceptional from every aspect. Regina and her daughters are genuinely warm and welcoming hosts. They were helpful with restaurant recommendations, instructed us on how to use the Sita bus system, and welcomed us with big smiles upon each return.

We felt this hotel is perfectly situated on Via C. Colombo. It's a short uphill walk to the Sponda bus stop, and a downhill stroll to the shops and restaurants on Via Mulini, and to the beach. Of course, you still have to walk back uphill eventually, but that's how it is in Positano.

Our rooms were bright with beautiful tile floors, and spacious outdoor decks. One room even had double sinks, which isn't something you typically see in small European hotels. The breakfast room is spacious and light, and the service was very good. The hotel is so clean, it sparkles.

It was a wonderful "home base" for day trips to Ravello (highly recommend it... we walked down to Arani and Amalfi from there), Amalfi Town, Sorrento and Capri. We would not recommend visiting Capri. It was overrun with with thousands of tourists. In a gentle way, our hotel hosts tried to warn us about this.

On a future trip to Positano, we would go right back to Hotel Savoia, and not even research other properties because we so enjoyed the family and our stay there.
