Perfect location, perfect hotel. The whole team could not do enough to make our stay perfect. The view was just "wow" and there was a relaxed at home feel about the place. The whole 6 days we stayed there provide a perfect base to explore Positano and the surrounding area. A great breakfast as well. We will certainly go back... More

I can’t say enough good things about this hotel. The location is perfect, and we had a beautiful view with a balcony. Staff were friendly and helpful, and the breakfast was very tasty. Weather permitting, you can eat on a lovely terrace. I highly recommend this hotel for a stay on the Amalfi coast.

Stayed 4 nights over the May long weekend, which made the coast very busy. Loved the room, simply stunning view from the balcony. The staff were fantastic and nothing was too much trouble including getting hot water for tea each afternoon. The prices at the bar and the mini bar were very reasonable. The added bonus was that we were... More

First time to the Amalfi coast so didn't know what to expect. The view, the staff and the facilities were fabulous! We splurged and got the "Honeymoon Suite" which was on the top floor and the view from our balcony was spectacular! The breakfast is superb. Can't complain about the location either! Next door is Bruno's Restaurant and we had... More

We really enjoyed staying at this hotel, the front desk staff were very helpful when trying to decide what restaurants to eat at and in setting up transportation for us. The views are amazing!! The only bummer was that our queen size bed was actually two twin beds pushed together, so you could feel the crack in the middle. Overall,... More

Do not let the name of this hotel disappoint you. A beautiful boutique hotel in a perfect location. We had a wonderful 4 night stay here. The rooms are large and spacious with the feel of Italy by the sea. Of course, the view off the small terrace is the real winner here. If you want to relax and enjoy... More

The hotel is in one off the best locations in Positano. Near to many restaurants and shops and short distance to the beach . It shares the same view as a 5 star famous hotel located 100m down from this hotel. That costs double if not more of this hotel rates. The best points are the view and the wonderful... More

The views are amazing! The hotel is perfectly located on one of the main streets in Positano. From here we could explore all the city had to offer by foot. The streets are lined with many amazing restaurants and shops. Too many to explore on our 3 night stay. Within 5 minutes we could be on the beach ready to... More

You’d be hard-pressed to find a better location in Positano. Located across from Le Sirenuse, you get more or less the same view for a fraction of the cost. You’re high enough to have a remarkable view (our room was on the first floor with a veranda that faced the ocean), and close to where buses/shuttles can pick you up... More
