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

If coming from Sorrento by bus hop off at the 2nd stop, and it is a 5 min walk. If coming by boat for sure you'll need to take a cab, I cannot imagine climbing all those stairs with your luggage in hand to the Albergo. We had booked a first floor room and we were glad we upgraded to... More

We loved our stay here, with great views and spacious room with phenom all views. The hotel is an easy walk to the beach and other parts of Positano. The bus stops a little way up the hill so it's easy to connect to Sorrento and the towns of the Amalfi Coast, most importantly, nothing was a problem for the... More

We stayed at this hotel in Positano for 4 glorious nights. We were in Italy for 17 days and this stay was the hi-light of our trip. It essentially provided us a vacation from our vacation. Positano is amazingly charming and beautiful and, staying at this hotel, allows you to take all of that in. We had a car and,... More

We stayed in this hotel for 5 nights and felt very much at home. This is a family run hotel, all the staff I met were most friendly, helpful and provided service beyond my expectations. Our room was clean, had a wonderful view, I couldn't have asked for a better location. There is a fantastic 'non tourist' restaurant downstairs (Da... More

The view on the terrace is espectacular! You can spend so much time just there comfortably admiring the beauty of Positano, relaxing, reading, enjoying a wine or Limoncello. The room was very spacious, clean and comfortable. The staff is very friendly and helps you with anything you need. You can walk just for a few minutes and you are at... More
