I stayed at Il Gabbiano with two friends for a four day getaway. The hotel was fantastic - it has a small, family-run vibe and all of the staff are extremely friendly and helpful. The room was clean and had everything we needed and the view from our room was fantastic. The breakfast was very simple, however overall I would... More

Great rooms with beautiful views. Had a private balcony to sit and or lay out in, Nice breakfast . Coffee was a little weak for me. Great location to everything. Learn to take bus back from down below. Long walk back after a long day.

We went for a short break over the weekend and this hotel did not disappoint. Some key pluses for your stay, the view, parking (which is hard to come by), the room size, the location to everything, the breakfast and the service. There is a lift available as the hotel is over a few floors. The view from everywhere is... More

I read many reviews before booking this place and I must say I wasn't disappointed. I booked online and got an excellent price, compared to my travel agent. I had read reviews about the owners and I can see how some people get the wrong idea. I would like to say however that if you give them the time of... More

I stayed in two different rooms, the first one, with no more than a tiny window didn't make justice to the hotel, when transferred to my room (with balcony and view) the value increases tremendously. It is located close to a shuttle stop however it is not infront and some stairs or steep walking has to be done (for people... More

We were very pleased with our stay at Il Gabbiano. The hotel is about 1/2 way up the very steep hills of Positano, so the views are spectacular yet you can walk to the beach in about 10 minutes or take a bus for Euro 1.70. the rooms are clean, the staff is very helpful and the price is reasonable...

Hotel was excellent clean and friendly. Great location. Right on the bus stop. Would recommend and also stay again in a heartbeat ! Few minutes down to the beach and a bus that takes you back up to your door! View is like nothing I have experienced before
