Villa Franca is one of the best hotels I've ever stayed in. The setting, high on the cliff overlooking Positano, is breathtaking. The food, while pricey and somewhat small in portions, is delicious. The staff, led by the invaluable Allesandro, is first-rate. I've never been treated better. The only drawback, and it's a minor one, is a relatively weak wifi...but... More

Not sure where to start....everything was perfect. The hotel staff were wonderful, the room was lovely (the jacuzzi tub was a great addition) and the view from our room and every part of the hotel was unbeatable. Breakfast (included) was delicious but dinner was absolutely amazing. The Chef truly believes you eat with your eyes first, and it shows. The... More

Great hotel, quality room, food and staff. I would recommend to anyone visiting the area. Best position in town overlooking centre and beach. Parking is expensive but same as going rate in town. Top quality restaurant and wine list. Only 15 minutes walk down to beach and a courtesy bus if you are feeling lazy.

Great location, almost at the top of the hill, but not too far up where it's a huge PITA to get to if you're just walking. Awesome views, great restaurant and spa as well. Definitely recommended. Would go again!

We want to start by saying we had a wonderful time at the Villa Franca but feel that this hotel could be so much more with some attention to detail. We checked out of Villa Franca this morning after four nights in the Annex which is a separate building, newer construction. Our room was four floors down, then a tight... More

Not quite sure where to begin with this review. There were so many positives about this amazing hotel, the staff, the experience, the food and THE VIEWS!!! The hotel itself is amazing from the rooms to the Mediterranean decor. The common areas and rooms were always cleanly kept. Our room (a junior suite) has it's own terra cotta patio with... More

Just back from a wonderful stay at the lovely Hotel Villa Franca with its beautiful views and helpful, friendly staff. Alessandro made helpful suggestions for our vacation itinerary and made sure that gluten free options were available at breakfast. I would recommend this hotel highly to anyone traveling to Positano

Wow! This was our first trip to Italy and the Amalfi coast for my wife and I. The views from the room were phenomenal that it was hard to justify leaving the room each day. The hotel decor is very inviting along with the friendly staff. The bed is standard euro twin x2 to make a queen and the walls... More

My husband and I stayed here as part of an anniversary trip of Italy. Romantic, wonderful view, very friendly and helpful staff, great breakfast, clean room, and great location on the hillside. Many, many flights of stairs down to the shopping district and beach, but if you like to get a workout, it is perfect. They have a shuttle service... More
