The best view of the town, trust me :) We enjoyed the terrace, so no need for the big rooms. We had friendly stuff and smiley approach, so I am not sure about negative reviews. Breakfast was normal, we ate most of the time in the neighborhood. Yes, it is far from the beach but that is not the point... More

some terrible reviews for this hotel on TA which I read after booking, I almost cancelled but in the end the price was right as most hotels in positano are very expensive. Two nights in a good sized double with an incredible sea view and terrace was €340. The room was clean and functional with a decent bathroom and effective... More

Great view and terrace. Rooms aren't nice, furniture outdated but clean. The staff isn't friendly at all and breakfast is poor. The hotel is far away from the beach, you have to walk a lot and probably get lost.

Nice, budget/ boutique hotel. Rooms are basic but the courtyard is large and the views more than make up for it. Aircon works well. Wifi is patchy in the room but full service available from the courtyard. Staff were kind and helpful when they needed to be.

The views from this hotel, as seen from the large balcony, were spectacular. The room was lovely, though a bit small, but the balcony view made up for that. I only wish they had a coffee pot in the room. I thought the location was perfect. About a ten or so minute walk to town, but because there are shops... More

I had to read between the negative reviews but somehow I knew this was the right place for a four night stay in Positano. There is nothing wrong with this charming little family run establishment if you are looking for a clean room with a great view with a place to catch sun chill enjoy a bottle a great wine... More

For 1 night on a walking holiday, OK, for longer I'd have been really disappointed to find myself here. Walls were paper thin, no safe in the room and a dreadful breakfast. Bedroom furniture really cheap and basic although plumbing and shower fine.

The rooms were clean and unbelievably spacious for Europe! Staff were most helpful about allowing us to store baggage as arrived off a very early flight and check- in was much later! The location was fine as you always have to climb stairs in Positano and one must be aware of this . The views were fabulous !!

This hotel offers many good things but some really awful things too. The views are amazing and the location is pretty good. About a 15 minute walk to the town centre and the beach. Offers wifi for free and most of the time it worked really well. Most of the staff were friendly and helpful but occasionally some of the... More

The view from the room is fantastic. We found the staff to be helpful and welcoming. Breakfast is a disaster. We were paying about euro170 per night and I think this must have been the worst breakfast I have ever had and I have traveled to some strange places and stayed in unsavory hotels. I can provide you with a... More
