As was said before, the location is good because you can walk from the ferry dock and down the street to your apartment with luggage in tow easily. That was also handy for us as we took a boat tour the following day and hardly had to walk to get to the dock. However, that also means that you don’t... More

The location is definitely the best thing about this hotel. It is right on the beach in Positano, which is very convenient. However, the hotel itself is only of so-so quality. The bed was actually fairly soft (by European hotel standards), but the room was rather sparse and the furniture generally fairly worn. The towels in our room had a... More

As a family of five from Australia we arrived from Salerno to Positano ferry. It is a very short walk with luggage but when we arrived we met with one of the owners Rosa who showed us to our rooms and took 20€ for two days wifi. Rosa appeared to speak little English but spoke to my husband who speaks... More

This is not a hotel, but rather, vacation apartment rentals managed by an on-site manager. The location is great if you don't want to climb the steep hills of Positano or worry about driving or dragging luggage around. My friends and I arrived via ferry from Sorrento and were dropped off at the dock right in the town center and... More

I have so many mixed thoughts on this hotel but overall I would stay here again. I have stayed in hotels and apartments up the hill in positano and you really just cannot beat this location, it makes your whole experience better. If you are going to Positano for a beach vacation there is absolutely no better place to stay... More

We chose this place because of its location right in the beach in Positano and our desire to avoid many steps with young kids. We were right, location is fantastic. However, the accommodation and the rooms are very dated and not up to the price being charged. We had a small bathroom for 4 people and were left with 4... More

My best friend and I stayed here when we were without a place to stay for one night in Positano. Rosa went far beyond expectations to find us a room and feel comfortable. She is so nice and kind. Speak Italian with the property staff, there will be a language barrier. Cannot beat this location. Grazie Rosa!

Great location, great value. Amenities may not be stellar, nevertheless, will stay here again most definitely. Rosa may not speak or understand English (thank goodness we had a family member with us who speaks Italian) but she is so accommodating, so nice and recommended a gem of a restaurant.

From the time we met Rosa our trip got better! We had 5 adults staying in 3 waterfront rooms that were fantastic. If you want a clean, freindly and welcoming stay in the heart of Positano, this is your place. I would recommend gettting Rosa to arrange a porter to help with your luggage as it is a hike from...

Had an excellent experience here. We originally booked a room for two nights and had to unexpectedly book a 3rd night just before our original reservation began. They were very accommodating and provided us a room at the same rate as the original reservation. On top of that, cleanliness, service, and friendliness exceeded expectations. Room was great, view was even... More
