It is true Antonio has trouble with English, but his smile and friendly nature more than make up for it. We were able to understand each other perfectly well. Personally, when staying in an Italian family operation, English skills should not be a consideration. Breakfast is toast, croissant, bread roll, 3 meats + 3 cheeses, jam, honey, choice of juice...

When we booked this B&B we were given the name Positanobb - which actually means Positano B&B and was not the B7B's name. Nowhere on our booking did we have the name Villa Palumbo so it added a bit of confusion when asking locals for help finding it but with the map, address and friendly locals we found it eventually....

Awesome B&B in a beautiful town. The service was exceptional. Our patio overlooking the town was by far the best part of this B&B. They prepared a hearty continental breakfast for us in the morning. No view of the ocean, but no complaints about that as you can walk two minutes down the road and get a full view. Definitely... More

We stayed here for two nights. The accommodation is beutifully designed and spotlessly clean. There was lots of nice finishing touches (for example two large bottles of water on arrival chilling in the fridge (free of charge), mosquito plug with tablets and use of beach towels. The breakfast was very good which is served on your balcony which has views... More

Great location. Steps to the beach and bus back landing just outside the hotel. Great rooms with a fridge. Fantastic balcony with flowers, table and chairs and an umbrella. Very cool breakfast. You call in the morning and they bring it to your room and the balcony. Nice feeling with the brothers that run it. Recommended!

Booked this place due to rating on TA and very reasonable price - was not disappointed! Service was great (esp. for Italy) - Antonio was brilliant everyday and always very pleasant! He makes the stay so much better and seems to work quite hard to keep everything running well! The included breakfast was fine but what really made the difference... More

This is a wonderful B&B just on the top of the Positano centre. To get to the centre is a 10 minute walk down the stairs or can be done by taxi. Excellent value compared to other hotels in Positano. The benefit from being on the hill is the breathtaking views from the room balcony's that can be enjoyed during... More

I spent 3 nights at Villa Palumbo (also known as Positano BB) and could not recommend the place more highly. To start, with Antonio, the owner, as well as all the staff, is a wonderful host and nothing is too much trouble. He is welcoming, efficient and eager to make you feel like you are the only guests staying there.... More
