I just came back from a whirlwind trip of France and Italy and Hotel Savoia in Positano was our third stop. We stayed at Savoia for 4 nights. Positano is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful places that I've been to in the world and Savoia helped to make our time there truly memorable.

Location: the location is amazing!! It's located 30 seconds from the bus stop (if you are hoping to take the bus up the mountain) and about a 10 minute walk from the beach. On your way down to the beach you walk through a narrow pedestrian street full of cute shops and vendors selling jewellery and custom hand-made sandals (which I definitely indulged in!). There are a number of stores and delicious restaurants a short walk away as well.

The hotel: Quite spacious for a European hotel that is built on a steep mountain! The lobby is a decent size and very colourful and bright. There is a large common area on Floor 1 (most European hotels count the ground floor as Floor 0). This area includes a sitting area with several comfy chairs, couches, and a TV. A lot of people gathered there to tune into the Olympics or to check their emails (wifi is strongest on this floor, though we found it tricky to log in and frequently had to go get new passwords. I believe the instability of the wifi has something to do with the mountains). It also includes a large sitting area with a balcony where we enjoyed breakfast and drinks later in the day. Breakfast was good, but could perhaps use a bit more variety (felt a bit repetitive after 4 days). There is also a nice terrace area through the sliding doors at the far end of the room that was beautiful and quiet (good for making phone calls home from!).

Staff: probably the friendliest staff of all the hotels that I stayed at on this trip! It's a family owned hotel and they are very warm, hard-working people. You can tell they care a lot about your comfort and happiness while you are there. They were extremely helpful in booking dinner reservations (and calling for complimentary shuttles to pick us up) and giving us directions to places. The front desk staff in particular were great at remembering our room number and would quickly grab our room key for us as they saw us returning to the hotel. The men who worked during breakfast and at the bar were also very friendly and would remember our routine coffee and cappucino orders in the morning. It's their attention to detail that truly made us feel welcomed and cared for!

Our room: our room on floor 2 was huge!! This was the largest room that we had on this trip. It had tall, domed ceilings and a beautiful, bright and colouful floor. There was a large closet and several drawers for us to unpack our clothes into and tons of floor space so we never felt cramped. The bathroom was quite large as well and had a very modern shower with electronic settings. The room was very clean too! My favourite part of the room however had to be the balcony! It was furnished with a table and 2 chairs as well as 2 very comfortable lounge chairs. The balcony was large and we had a gorgeous view of the colouful houses/hotels that were built up along the mountain and we could also see the water!

We had a delightful stay at Savoia and I would highly recommend this place to anyone staying in Positano!

Just completed a 4day stay at the Savoia in Positano, a friendly, professionally run and airconditioned hotel. The staff were helpful, welcoming and knowledgable. the restaurants that were recommended were excellent as was all of their information about points of interests in the local area. Each day we were greeted warmly and helped to make our stay unforgetable.

Room Tip: 2nd floor rooms have balconies with loung chairs.

Hotel Savoia is a lovely, family run boutique hotel in the heart of Positano. Splurge for the balcony - they are spacious, with private sunning areas, lounge chairs, table, all overlooking the town and a glimpse of the sea. Mind you, that does mean your room will hug the main road in town, which has a fair amount of road noise, but not worth giving up the balcony. The spotless rooms are incredibly spacious, with a lovely huge bed, great a/c, large wardroom, beautiful blue tiled floors, massive bathroom with my "dream-come-true" shower - consisting of electronic temperature gauge, sauna settings, and multiple variations of water jets. Loved it!!! We were greeted upon arrival with a bottle of sparkling wine and well wishes for our one-year wedding anniversary, which was delightful, given it was one of only two places on our 2 week trip that remembered! Breakfast was relaxing and with many options, including an espresso bar with table service. Our wi-fi never worked in the room, but isn't vacation about getting away from it all! We used our time at breakfast to check email or would stop by one of many lounge areas to check in. If you arrive from the port, have directions printed out. We thought a tiny town like Positano would be a breeze, but when it's 95 degrees and you're carrying bags up endless steps and curving alleys, you lose your bearings. Once we found it and settled in, it became our dream home for visiting the Amalfi coast. I look forward to a return visit!! Thanks also to the gracious staff.

When staying in Positano, the ideal location is up on the cliffs with a view of the sea and city below and across. The Hotel Savoia provides both in abundance! When arriving by sea, a porter will meet you at the dock and agree to a baggage delivery fee (usually 7-8 Euros a bag but they will throw in smaller ones for free). Visitors need simply to climb the many steps up to the top of town. Located a few steps from the end of the climb is this wonderful hotel. We arrived around noon and our room was not quite ready. Our bags arrived about 10 minutes after we did so they invited us to freshen up or change in the lobby bathrooms and they would store our bags safely behind the counter. We headed out for lunch and by the time we returned, the room was ready. When we entered the room, the a/c would not start so we decided to head down to the front desk to inquire about it. Upon opening the door, we were greeted by a staff member with a lovely bottle of prosecco on ice and an anniversary card with kind sentiments from the hotel management! What a great surprise! The person who brought the bottle called the front desk and had them turn on the air conditioning and it worked perfectly from that time on! We enjoyed the prosecco on the large terrace overlooking Positano! The terraces are staggered and if outdoor privacy is important, Positano is not the place for you. Actually we found it quite fun to see the many other tourists sitting on their terraces enjoying their wine! Now details about the room: the room we had was large enough for the two of us and had a second set of solid wood doors to darken it and keep the heat out. The bathroom was large and the shower had full enclosure doors. It also included a bidet, a magnifying mirror but not much counter space. The wi-fi does not work in the rooms at all. You must use it in the lobby or the breakfast/lounge area. This was not a problem as we don’t tend to be online often while on vacation. The hotel is very quiet (even more so with our always present Leight earplugs) and very clean. The stairs are conveniently located next to the small, slow elevator. The staff is very helpful. Amelia gave us great recommendations for dinner (Ristorante Mediterraneo and Ristorante Scirocco – see my reviews) and places to rent a boat (which we feel is a MUST DO along the Amalfi Coast-if you only see it from the road, you are missing the whole reason to go!) They are always available to answer questions but are not intrusive on providing information you haven’t asked for. The breakfast is very satisfying with the ability to order and pay a small additional fee for eggs, etc. Cereals, juices, coffee (including cappuccino), meats, yogurt, fruit, breads – the standard of most Italian hotel breakfasts were all available. A strange toaster took some time to figure out and one guest topped bread with cheese to melt creating a burning smell that lasted the morning. The seating outside along the terrace railing was perfect! When we return someday, and I know we will, this will be my first choice for our hotel. My husband and I truly appreciated the gracious, comfortable hospitality!

Room Tip: We had room 312 which was at the end of the hall and outside, at the end of all the terraces. A large covered terrace was an awesome place to sit and take in the view of all of Positano! Located far enough away from the elevator and stairs we never heard our neighbors.

I stayed in this hotel for one night this summer. It was a great choice, it is a couple of blocks from the bus stop (Sita bus) although a little hard to get there from the port with your suitcase... but all Positano is like this. THe hotel was really nice, room was ok, AC strong!, good WiFi signal, nice terrace to get breakfast and view the bay.... The staff was really nice (I read it is family-run) very friendly. I would recommended for sure!
