I would definitely stay tree again. The breakfast is wonderful, the views spectacular. Our room was small but nice. There aren't enough outlets - but the Europeans aren't as hooked on their devices as we are - so that's the same everywhere. I always forget to travel with a multiple plug in - like I use for computers at home.... More

Even though we did not actually stay at this hotel, I had to do a review because their customer service was amazing - and the hotel is beautiful with an amazing view. We were making our way from the top of Positano to the bottom where we were staying. We were a little ahead of the season so many places... More

We stayed here for three nights and were very pleased with the location, the amazing view, staff, the room itself, and the great breakfast. Definitely make sure you get the breakfast, as there aren't many breakfast options nearby. They will also make you whatever coffee you like: Americans, lattes, etc. We opened the French doors and listened to the waves... More

Big Plus - the Villa Franca is located on the main road, which is critical if you have average fitness. The Hotel is situated across two buildings. The second building, 50m up the hill, appeared to have larger balconies, and our room was of average size with a commanding village/water view. The room had a mildew odor, and we couldn't... More

I haven't been to Positano in high season but I can say that I think March is a great time to visit. Climbing all the steps here is more comfortable with milder temperatures! And I can't imagine what driving on the roads here is like when the place is teaming with people. The hotel had some very friendly staff and... More

This hotel was one of the few who are open in this period of the year. Only a few rooms were occupied because tourist season has not started yet. Nevertheless we got a great welcome, very warm and friendly. We had standard rooms which were pretty and clean. All staff was friendly and helpfull, we could ask for anything for... More

Read the reviews and decide for yourself - you may be less particular than I. We went here for our honeymoon and had a fantastic week, at least those times out of this hotel! Air conditioning that doesn't work, a tiny lift that should have been condemned in the 50's, ignorant staff, very small pool and doors that are paper... More

Positano is a town of superlatives and the Hotel Villa Franca no less so. First class accommodation both in the rooms and the common areas of the lounges, restaurant and lobby combine with breath taking views to ensure that this is a stay you will not easily forget. It would be fair to say that visiting Positano in March is... More
