Hotel is nice -- classic like many hotels in Positano. Do not expect "modern" rooms or furnishings. Bathrooms are dated as well. The views are excellent, the front desk staff is exceptional and friendly, and the pool and rooftop lounge is very nice. Breakfast is included and is basic but nice. WiFi works well.

Hotel Poseidon was a romantic gem located in the most beautiful place on earth. The rooms were simplistic and beautiful, but the balcony was the best part- that view was spectacular! The staff were so friendly and we can credit them for our dining selections. This stay added to our wonderful honeymoon experience in the Amalfi coast.

Not much can put a damper during a visit to Positano - but staying at Hotel Poseidon definitely enhanced our visit. Our room was large, clean and very comfortable with views of the ocean below. Although it was a steep climb to the hotel as we arrived via Capri by boat, it was well worth the hike. Within minutes we... More

We stayed at Hotel Poseidon for 5 nights in late May and highly recommend it. The staff are wonderful and the hotel has an 'old world' charm that is amazing. We will never forget enjoying cocktails on the pool terrace overlooking the amazing view of Positano and the coast. Our room had a lovely balcony where we could also sit... More

My Girlfriend and I stayed here for 3 nights and had a great time. Great rooms, great views, great service. You can't go wrong with the Poseidon. Centrally located high up in Positano with great staff, a great pool and a good restaurant. Stay here!

Charming stylish hotel in excellent location in Positano. The views are tremendous. The pool deck is great with a swimming pool for cooling off, and bar service. The restaurant is very good and certainly worth eating at, but do try the other options close by; most are good. The breakfast is excellent and well worth getting up early for. The... More

Absolutely loved this hotel nestled in the cliffside of Positano. Staff is wonderful. After a day of touring, their pool is so refreshing. Dining in the terrace is so romantic. My daughter just spent part of her honeymoon there and can't wait to return!
