The view is beautiful! We had to change rooms from the annex as the fire alarm went off all night. It took five requests at the front desk until the change was done. The restaurant is expensive however the view and service are excellent. Overall, we enjoyed our stay in Positano however not sure we we would visit the hotel... More

Staff is exceptionally welcoming and helpful from the moment you arrive to your departure; rooms are tidy, decently appointed and well maintained; the restaurant is a must no matter how long or short your stay in Positano may be. The only negative is related to geography with the relatively long (steep) walk to and from the center of town but... More

First let me say that overall the stay was pleasant but not perfect and for the price paid I expect perfect. (well near perfect anyway) The good, hotel staff was pleasant and professional. All requests and complaints were received with a professional and helpful attitude. There were a couple requests we made that were a little unusual and they were... More

We travelled at Easter and stayed in the annexe, we complained about the smell in our tiny room and the size of the room, We did have a great view from the balcony. When I booked I did not realise there was an annexe and asked to be moved to the main hotel. I was shown a succession of mediocre... More

Hotel Villa Franca was amazing! My husband and I stayed here on our honeymoon, and it could not have been more relaxing or beautiful. The restaurant was wonderful, the pool was the right size (much bigger and it may have been loud) and the balcony off our suite was simply incredible. My favorite moments were with a glass of wine...

My husband & I stayed at HVF in July 2015. We were very pleased with our stay!! The room was clean, smelled great & had an awesome view! The room even had robes & slippers. The rooftop pool had unobstructed panoramic views of Positano. So breathtaking!!! Disappointed that it closed at 7, though. Would've loved to go for a late... More

We stayed here for a week in July as a treat without the children and would find it very hard to find any fault with. The location and views were just amazing, the rooms extremely comfy and the staff very helpful. Breakfast was a delight every morning, especially sat overlooking the sea and we ate in the hotel restaurant on... More

We had a lovely few days at HVF. This was our second time in Positano and it really is one of the most beautiful settings. The bedrooms are small but very well presented and spotlessly clean. We had a superior room (room 30) with a tiny balcony and a wonderful view. The staff are polite and helpful and in so... More

We chose this hotel for our Silver Wedding Anniversary as it was beautiful, discrete and had spectacular views. What we were not expecting was quite how warm, welcoming and thoughtful the staff are. We only needed to mention our personal tastes at breakfast and we were offered them the following day. If we had been to the pool, an evening... More

Great location, great staff and great hotel! In this hotel you feel well treated like you are in your own house, everyone always take the time to greet you, smile and open the doors for you. And the food? Just amazing, tastefully cooked and perfectly presented in a scenario on the terrace where at sunset you can enjoy the magic... More
