the hotel was fine broadly. Of course it is far from the beach, you have to walk a lot. But the view is unquestionable. rather basic rooms, sheets and towels are very poor. The breakfast very regular, nothing special. basically the view is the key. Another issue is the attention. Apparently, the hotel is managed by a family. they were... More

We booked on line with booking.com through trip advisor. They tried to get us to cancel that booking and pay less...which seems dishonest to me,as. They wouldn't have our booking without booking.com and tripadvisor. Directions from hotel for a new visitor were inadequate. We found our way eventually. The manageress has an unfortunate abrupt style, she seemed annoyed by having... More

I was looking forward to visiting Positano and it is amazing, but unfortunately the hotel is tired and so are the family that run it. The rooms a run down and it has put a downer on our stay. The views are beautiful thou, I just hope the owners realise how fortunate they are to have these views and spend... More

We had an enjoyable stay. The view cannot be faulted. Room was nice, all tiled, big bed and good bathroom with hair dryer. We were on the first floor with balcony, table and chairs and relaxing beach chairs which we great for reading books in the sun. Definitely have to be active if you stay here as everything except the... More

We have just booked into this horrible little place and I'm squashed onto the bed with our suitcases around us, waiting for my travel agent to open in Australia so I can ring her to get us out of here!!! Where to start?? The room is minuscule and we have paid AUD1200 for the dubious privilege of staying here for... More

I was very pleased with my stay at Hotel Gabbiano. My wife and I stayed here for 4 nights. Nice thing about this hotel is that the front lobby is right at street level and almost all of the floors are accessible via an elevator unlike many other hotels in Positano which makes getting your luggage to your room much...

Family of four, with our kids 12 & 14 years old, spent one night here. Spacious and clean room, and the staff were helpful and friendly! Breakfast was okay, but very simple. The view is beautiful! We could park our car at the cost of 10 Euro (15 of you don't pay for your stay in cash). It's cheaper than... More

Squalid! More suitable to a third world country than Italy. Staff were rude condescending Italians that acted as if you should be privileged to stay in their second rate dump. Please look elsewhere an pay a little more. Don't ruin a Positano trip by staying here.

We had a great time in this unpretentious small hotel. It is a family business so everyone makes an effort to make your stay is just perfect. Every room has sea-view, but some of them have a small terrace rather than a balcony. If you can afford it, don't hesitate to get the ones with terraces in which you can... More

We just returned from a wonderful stay at Il Gabbiano. As far as I could tell, the entire hotel was recently repainted and immaculately clean. The view from our upper floor balcony was spectacular! We had three adults in a room and found the accommodations to be very comfortable. The continental breakfast was good, but nothing special. As mentioned in... More
