We stayed at Dimora del Podesta in June 2014 and highly recommend it without hesitation! It's the best budget option in Positano. The location is unbeatable- close enough to walk to everything but farther from the nosy marina. The rooms even have small private balconies which is great for an aperitivo before dinner. Rooms and clean and well kept. The... More

We stayed for one night at this B&B and really loved it, we wished we could have stayed longer! We arrived by car and Pietro sorted it out so we could park just next door for a small price. We were made to feel very welcome and were given great advice on arrival of what to do for our short... More

Outstanding value and worthy of #1 on Tripadvisor. Pietro and his brothers have a great location with balcony views over the ocean below and the alfresco street scape below where you can watch a slice of Positano life. It's wonderful people watching the street below with the family's Saraceno d'Oro restaurant and happy street musicians entertaining the al fresco diners.... More

Our stay was amazing! Everyone treated us like family and spoiled us beyond belief. I could have moved in and never come home. Pietro and his family made sure every detail was taken care and the location was perfect, food was amazing! This is a must visit!

The quality of service and the level of care are unmatched and like we have never experienced before. We have lodged in a lot of nice places with great services (including in Positano) over the years. This was different. It was an immediate sensation of, "things are all good" from the time we got out of our cars to the... More

Pietro and his mom Sylvana were very accommodating. We had the triple room for my wife, daughter and me. Nice big suite with balcony and ocean view. Pietro brought us breakfast on the balcony every morning. He would give us suggestions for daily activities, and help on any questions we had. Great experience. Only negatives were the noise at night... More

Italy is a country of family businesses and Dimora Del Podesta is a perfect example. We were greeted by Silvano the mother when we arrived from Naples and were looked after each morning by Pietro, the son who manages the B&B. Pietro is absolutely lovely and a fantastic host. He served a beautiful breakfast each morning on our balcony with... More

We just returned from a 3 night saty with our two teen daughters (15 and 13). What a fabulous opportunity to meet Pietro and family! We were greeted by his mother upon our arrival, we ate downstairs Saraceno d'Oro and met father and brother, etc. The rooms were clean and spacious... we had a great and plentiful breakfast each morning...
