We were given great directions - which bus stop to get off - so finding this location was simple. And the views were as described. We had the views of Le Sirenuse at a fraction of the cost. The breakfast on the terrace overlooking the sea and the terraced buildings was delightful and the location was a quick stroll into... More

This is a wonderful place to stay in Positano. It is right on one of the main roads which means you don't have to schlep your bags a couple of blocks, which is the case with many of the hotels here. All of the rooms have a terrace facing the Mediterranean with magnificent views. There's nothing fancy about the rooms... More

The views from this wonderful hotel were superb - we have the same views as Le Sirenuse ! And it was not nearly as expensive ! The breakfast was great overlooking the city and the sea and the bus stop was just minutes from the hotel. The rest of the town is only a few minutes walk, so the location... More

Great value in Positano - moderately priced, excellent staff and service, clean and spacious rooms, with the best views of Positano. But you will have to walk 10 minutes or so for the best Positano restaurants, if they do not have a free shuttle.

The terrace and balcony views are amazing. The thing that even made this hotel better is the family who owns it. They are so friendly and willing to help with suggestions, or anything you may need. Our stay was short, but was wonderful. The hotel is in such a great location, walking distance to everything and the beach. We had... More

This property is an absolute gem. The location is fantastic and offers a view that must be seen to be believed. The room had a high ceiling with a lovely balcony overlooking Positano. The staff was friendly, helpful and attentive. When I return back to Positano, I will return to this hotel without question. The only downside was the WiFi... More

The hotel is in a great location in Positano and was within easy walking distance to everything including the bus stop for Amalfi and Sorrento. The room was huge and the room was very clean, as were the general outside areas. The staff were really helpful and made us feel at home. Only minor complaint was the wifi signal which... More

My husband and I visited Positano at the end of our 2 week vacation in Italy. I did a lot of research on hotels and I chose this one based on reviews and photos of the amazing view of the sea and coast. When we arrived, the hotel went above and beyond our expectations. The Cinque family who runs the... More

We enjoyed our stay at this hotel. The breakfasts were good and the rooms were spacious enough. The facility had a view for which to kill - especially from the veranda from where breakfast was served. Beware that the place has lots of stairs, no elevator, but there are some ground-floor rooms. Understand, though, that EVERYONE must climb the stairs... More

Amazing location, literally in the centre of everything and a 10 minute walk down to the beach. Rooms were large and original, dated furniture but a lovely little juliette balcony with a view over the bay. The only downside besides the older style rooms which were not an issue for us was the coffee in the morning. Possibly the worst... More
