I will preface the review to say that we stayed here actually a few years ago - but to make sure that even I remember that we stayed here I wanted to jot some notes down. 1. Be prepared to hike up a LOT of steps. I know this goes without saying in most of Positano, but my husband, even... More

We had an outstanding time at the Hotel Villa Franca. The views from our guest room, the restaurant, the breakfast room and the pool deck were panoramic and postcard perfect! The Hotel has a comfortable, boutique vibe supported by very friendly and personable service. The breakfast buffet is well-presented and offers a good variety of food but the best part... More

My family stayed at the HVF for five nights this week. We were "annexed", which I was originally concerned about after reading the reviews on Trip Advisor. However, our room (64) was spacious, clean and had the most amazing views of Positano AND the sea. There was not a single issue with being disconnected from the hotel lobby and facilities.... More

We stayed at Villa Franca for 4 nights beginning July 5. Room 46...First, we entered the hotel lobby and the people that work there are rude. They act like they don't want to be bothered. We felt very uncomfortable. We got to our room, and the view was beautiful. The room itself was terrible. The paint was peeling on the... More

We came to Positano to relax after touring Venice, Florence and Rome. Our trip was planned by Perillo and this hotel was the crown jewel of our stay. Staff was friendly and professional. Hotel was SPOTLESS! We arrived around lunchtime and ate at the restaurant on the pool level- delicious(and pricey). Set above the main road, we used the shuttle... More

Villa Franca is a real surprise - it is a beautiful luxury small hotel with a staff, views and class that we found to be "about as good as it can get". The service and was 100% professional and exceptionally gracious and not overbearing. The food and service lead by Franco Villa Franca's "head ambassador" at La Galli Restaurant is... More

When we arrived we were made to feel so welcome. We only have another day or so before leaving for Sicily but we've been here a week and it's been bliss. Whe. We first checked in and were told we would be in a separate building to the main hotel, I'll admit, we were a little disappointed.... BUT, being in... More

Thank you for your fantastic review. I was extremely pleased to see that you had a lovely stay and I have shared all your comments with all the team. As regarding the comfortable of the bed, for safety reason the hotel must use only fireproof bed, and the Simons brand, is one of the most comfortable one. We hope we... More

I stayed in Hotel Villa Franca for 5 nights by myself in June 2014. Location is fabulous - far enough away from the noise and hustle and bustle of the village, but not too far away! A 10 minute walk down several hundred stairs to the village below, a bit longer if you take the road. The Hotel is situated... More

Great hotel nestled atop the hill with breathtaking views over Positano! Staff were very nice and accommodating. We stayed on a half board basis and dinner was excellent at the restaurant. A lot of non hotel guest choose to dine there also which is always a good reflection. Overall a great experience and would definitely go back.
