I stayed here in August and was very impressed with this friendly, well-run, independent hotel with outstanding views over Positano. The pool area has a 1st class view of the whole bay. The bathrooms could do with updating, but it was clean, comfortable and I would highly recommend it.

My wife and I were traveling through France and Italy for a late honeymoon and booked our stay at the Hotel Poseidon. After arriving, we were given a room overlooking all of Positano, with a balcony that was perfect for relaxing and lounging in the sun. From being greeted at the front desk with huge smiles to when we left,... More

We stayed at the Poseidon for our honeymoon and had a fantastic week. The Poseidon is an extended old family villa, full of quirky details and surprises. Although this wasn't our first choice, we were so glad we stayed at the Poseidon: it was actually a much better choice than the hotel we had originally picked. We had a suite... More

We stayed at the Poseidon in July of this year for five days - the visit could not have been better. Service was great; the food at the restaurant was excellent; the view was gorgeous (we had a suite); condition of the hotel was clean and well kept. The city of Positano was fabulous - we will definitely return on... More

We stayed two nights at Hotel Poseidon in June 2014. The views from our private balcony were breathtaking. The furnishings were simple but comfortable. Each room has different décor. We spent an afternoon at the rooftop pool and enjoyed a tranquil relaxing few hours. The breakfast buffet is AMAZING!!!! Best croissants I've ever put in my mouth. Walking distance to... More

My fiance and I stayed at this hotel for 4 nights early September. It took me quite a while to choose a hotel as there are so many beautiful hotels to choose from but The Hotel Poseidon instantly stood out to me for its beautiful views over Positano - we were not disappointed! The hotel arranged for us to be... More

Charming hotel in a great location! Located in the middle of the main street that flows one way through Positano. Easy walk to many restaurants and shops above, and to the main square and beach and restaurants below. Spacious room and bathroom, with a balcony overlooking the beautiful houses hugging the hillsides of Positano and the beach! Additionally, the rooftop... More

Spent 4 nights here to relax after a family holiday and before a hike in Tuscany. Taxi from Naples train or airport drops you right at the door. Small, oldest elevator in Positano was fun to ride to the 4 th floor. Breakfasts excellent on the terrace looking at that view. Generally staff helpful, but not overly friendly except for... More

Wonderful hotel and staff - very accomodating and willing give good advice if asked, be it regarding restaurants, sights, transport etc. You truly get the feel that the family, Angelo + rest of the team are extremely proud of the history of this gem of a hotel and Positano itself, and so they should be... all about it is plain...
