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

My husband and I visited Hotel Villa Franca in August as our last trip before the birth of our son. The room was delightful - spacious and light, good shower water pressure and a lovely view from the balcony. It had a safe for valuables and a TV (although we didn't use this). The pool and pool bar was easily... More

Our last stay in southern Italy. We spent 2 nights in the HVF. Staff was top notch. Always smiling and willing to assist in English. Upon arrival we were given a tour of the hotel and restaurant. Then escorted to our room with amazing views of Positano and spiaggia/beach. The room was small but very charming. Nice large rain shower... More

The view of town and the bay were as good as it gets. The staff was always very helpful and went out of their way to assist. The restaurant was very good and had excellent service. The shortcoming is the room was a bit on the small side, but with that view it was an easy tradeoff.

My friend Kathleen and I had the best time ever! Best hotel in Positano! Situated perfectly for mesmerizing views, views and views! The staff was very helpful, accommodating and catered to our every need. Our room was awesome with a balcony overlooking the city. Our only (and I mean only) complaint was the shower was aesthetically beautiful but lacked functionality... More

We have been long time customers. We stayed at and loved the Villa Franca over a dozen tmes over the past 30 years. We met Franca years ago, and fondly remember Mario (her brother) whose warmth and charm is greatly missed following his passing a year or so ago. Many of the staff we've known over the years no longer... More
