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...

The hotel arranged our car transport from Rome airport and it was a smooth professional one. Upon check in, a sweet old guy showed us our spacious room and even bigger terrace. He explained how to use the vintage wooden elevator and mentioned how proud they were with this lift. For our dismay, the lift stopped working the next day... More

We stayed 3 nights in the Hotel Poseidon and loved it ! The location is amazing. That sentence construction is vastly overused but actually applies in this case. This is a hotel cut from a classic mold. It feels very gracious and welcoming without being pretentious or overbearing. The breakfast is excellent and we wished we'd tried dinner here, but... More

Do not attempt to drag your bags up to the hotel. You should let the porters at the dock take your bags to the hotel (8 euros per bag payable to the hotel, not the porters). Then you must walk yourselves up. My advice is take the road (not the steps) and stop in the shops along the way. Pace... More

What a pretty, romantic place! A former residence turned into hotel (various years ago), it still retains a wonderful 'home away from home' feel. Good breakfast and decent-sized pool deck area with lovely panoramic bay views, very friendly, cheerful and helpful owner plus happy staff all contributed towards making the stay memorable.

We stayed at the Hotel Poseidon for 3 nights and couldn't get over the view. The staff is wonderful, friendly, and helpful (and spoke English). The outdoor breakfast & view was phenomenal. We were a little apprehensive about the funny room, but you really aren't in your room much. It is small and spartan, but I think you are paying... More

This is the typical Positano style hotel with has everything you may desire: a great restaurant catering unforgettable breakfasts and candle light dinners , small cozy pool into a panoramic terrace with stunning view, short walk to main positano landmarks and a very personal Italian charming service. Nice room with local ceramic tiled floors and beautiful flowers everywhere made the... More

We arrived at the Poseidon after a long journey by plane and multiple trains. A couple things to keep in mind about the travel -the Circumvesuvio is a long, hot, winding train ride from Naples to sorrento filled with some surly characters....avoid if you can -we took the Sita bus to Positano and were dropped off at the first stop....
