We stayed in this hotel for 2 nights in November, even when it was low season, we enjoyed a lot this magical place. Our room had a fantastic view and I enjoyed a lot to be outside the balcony just looking around like trying to keep that view in my head forever... We were in some other places in Italy... More

We spent 2 nights at Villa Franca. Room was nice, older, but needs some renos (my reason for 4 stars). Our view from our room was of trees, completely blocking the Mediteranean. The service and food at dinner was out of this world though, we had two servers providing us with attention throughout both of our exquisite meals. The views... More

We spent two nights at the Villa Franca just before Christmas. The room was gorgeous with a large balcony and a breathtaking view of the town and the Mediterranean sea. The room was spacious with a beautiful bathroom. The breakfast was adequate possibly due to the low season. The staff was very friendly and helpful with our needs. Definitely we... More

The Hotel Villa Franca came highly recommended by two friends and it did not disappoint. The views were fabulous, the breakfast was delicious, and the staff was extremely helpful in everything from restaurant selection to even setting up a hair appointment. No matter where you were in the hotel, from our individual rooms to the lobby to the rooftop pool,... More

Hotel Villa Franca is perfect for people who want to enjoy the Amalfi area and have a car. The place offers both views of Positano, the old and the new part. It is a half an hour drive from Sorrento and to Amalfi, and it seems to be near some of the best restaurants of the area. The staff is... More

We were very happy with our room, our only complaint being there weren't enough plugs. You had to pay for anything you had in the room. This wasn't just the mini bar, but included the tea and coffee. Which was a little disappointing considering the cost of the hotel. Anyway onwards and upwards. We ate at the hotel once..... And... More

Best view in Positano. Villa Franca is by far the best hotel from a value for money perspective in this town. I am still flashed from the views it provides no matter where you stay, eat, drink, sit or swim within the hotel area. As it is located on the highest point of the lovely town of Positano, you get...

This hotel is amazing, the staff is friendly, helpful and efficient. The hotel is beautiful and with a great view. Ask for a room with view of downtown Positano. The other view is amazing as well. We were there in low season so the main restaurant and pool were not in service but there are options for dinner a few... More
