We stayed here in September for our honeymoon, and we cannot sing the praises of Hotel Poseidon enough... From the moment we arrived everyone was so kind and helpful, the staff here is wonderful (everyone speaks English as well) . The hotel is gorgeous, but not in a stuffy way... it is full of old world charm and beauty- not... More

Poseidon is the most friendly hotel in Italy!! We went to Positano for a wedding in June 2014 and I have been going back every year since; the place is just majestic! You fall in love over and over again with the friendly staff to the people who are staying there with you... I highly recommend staying here.... The family... More

We stayed at Hotel Poseidon in the summer of 2015 and had a wonderful stay. Our room had a beautiful view of Positano and a large and comfortable balcony. The staff is friendly, well-trained, helpful and accommodating. They assisted us in booking a car from Naples and helped us to book the same driver for our return. The breakfast is... More

Complimentary bottle of prosecco on our arrival, beautiful room with a gorgeous view of Positano, amazing pool and great service, food and drinks by the pool. 10 minutes walk to the beach and 5 minutes to all the excellent restaurants close by (Casa e bottega and Ristorante Max were our favourites.) Overall we loved staying here, highly recommend!

Moving from our 1st night hotel to the family-run, four-star Poseidon Hotel was one of the best decisions we made while visiting the high energy, crowded, sunny coastal town of Positano. We stayed 3 nights and enjoyed every moment. At first glance, the hotel interior and room appeared a little dated. But as we settled in, what looked dated became... More

We stayed in September, the weather was glorious so able to swim in the pool and eat outside, both overlooking Positano. Our room was in the older part of the building and had a vaulted ceiling, well furnished and very comfortable but no view. It's about the right distance down the hill to be able to get to most of...

I was really looking forward to our one night in this hotel as friends had raved about it and all the reviews were so positive. I had paid in advance through the hotel website and the deal was that we would be upgraded if a room was available. We didn't receive an upgrade and ended up in a garden room... More

Fabulous customer service. All the staff were extremely pleasant and helpful. Fabulous view over the coast. It has an old world charm. Only downside was that the menu did not change for the time we were there so where we might have stayed in for dinner we chose to go out a few nights.

Don't go here expecting a sleek modern American style hotel. This is a early '50's authentic Italian hotel. It comes across as dated but that's part of the charm. We particularly liked (1) the beautiful very scenic patio / pool area for lounging and breakfast on nice days (2) the lounge with a tended fireplace was like your own personal... More

After a lot of research we decided on the Hotel Poseidon for our 3 night stay during September. We booked direct with the hotel and had been communicating with Margherita. She was so helpful by the time we arrived at the hotel she felt like our friend. This family hotel is so welcoming nothing is too much trouble. The hotel... More
