We loved our stay at this pensione. The staff are super friendly and accommodating in almost any request we threw at them .We were with our 5 month old baby and they gave us a cot. There is no air con, but the the fan provided did the trick. It's certainly not 5 star, but the view is. Our bags... More

We visited Marialouisa but unfortunately had to leave unexpectedly as my other half seriously hurt his knee. As he would have struggled with the walking and needed some medical attention we needed to leave for Sorrento earlier than expected. Carlo was very accommodating and kind to us and so would highly recommend a stay here. Good location and great value... More

My husband and I stayed here a few weeks ago on our Amalfi Coast trip. We only stayed for one night before heading onto Capri to end our trip. We were looking for a lower budget option, and found Pensione Maria Luisa. Unfortunately, I don't think we would ever stay here again due to the ant problem. We knew ahead... More

I read about this hotel on trip adviser. I highly recommend this hotel. Of course is not 5 * hotel, but it is amazing. The rooms are clean, Carlo is very friendly and makes you feel home. The hotel is in the main road so the positioning is really good. You can go at "Fornillo" beach or Main Beach easily.... More

Awesome stay staff was so friendly! Amazing views and amazing price in Positano! Close to the main road to get to the main beach with lots of near by restaurant. A plus was the mini fridge in the room to keep breakfast food for us! Also a smaller beach is about 400 steps right near the hotel. The water is... More

I read about this hotel in Lonely planet and booked it. True to what was written, this place is near perfect. The views offered from the dining area was breath-taking. I understood that for 10-15 Euros more, you can get rooms with a better view as well. Carlos - the friendly owner - goes to any length to help you.... More

We stayed at Maria Luisa on recommendation from my Aunty (Gaye), who said was a great Hotel that is budget priced but offered the most amazing views and great access to the restaurants and the beach. It didn't let us down, the owner Carlo is the most friendliest man you could ever meet and nothing was a problem. The room... More

Thanks a lot for your review Nathan! I'm glad you enjoyed your stay! A point concerning the stairs to the beach: the 400 steps to the beach are not mandatory but are just an option! You can walk instead, or take a bus, from the road to the beach in 10 minutes with no stairs! I look forward to having... More

I would definitely stay here again! Positano is breathtaking and l loved Carlo's place. My room was huge, view amazing and I would sit endlessly watching it with my vino and book and that was only when I was home - I spent much of my time enjoying what Posianto offered, from the beach to the mountain - amazing!

Great views, owner Carlo very friendly and very accommodating. Stayed in room with balcony, well worth extra money for the view. Great place to drink Limoncello. Rooms basic but very clean and water for shower was hot.

Pensione Maria Luisa is a great budget spot in Positano. It's very no frills, but the room was clean and a good size. We had the basic room, but the shared balcony is a wonderful place to start your morning or end the day. Carlo is so friendly and nice and it felt very much like staying in a family... More
