Positano is the best place I've ever been to and to stay at Gippy's hotel completed the whole experience! He is so friendly and helpful and down to earth. We stayed at his hotel for two nights and then came up with the silly idea to visit st antonio abate... Turns out the 5 star hotel we were going to... More

TripAdvisor wouldn't let me post the correct travel dates, but we stayed at the Venus Inn from April 20, 2012 - April 26, 2012 to kick off our trip to Europe. The Venus Inn was exactly what we needed, and we'd gladly recommend it to anyone. We were looking for a hotel/B&B in Positano that was still relatively affordable, and... More

My wife and I recently spent 6 nights here and our stay was superb. The accommodation is unpretentious but is all one needs - clean, roomy, comfortable with a great view. And Gippy is the best host ever! We misunderstood his instructions on which bus stop to jump off at and he came and fetched us from the 'wrong' stop,... More

Surrounded by quality restaurants with steps (525) from the front door to the beach, where u will find reasonably priced food and drink and a good private... More

Had a great stay here.. Was very good value option for Positano. The host was incredibly helpful & welcoming. He really made it for us. The room was a good size & clean with its own balcony area. The bed wasn't terribly comfortable but wouldn't have noticed so much if i wasn't 6mths pregnant! The breakfast was basic & we... More

I was here for 2 nights in July. Despite the room not having air conditioning and being in the middle of summer, the room was cool and pleasant to stay in. The room was spacious and clean with an incredible view from my terrace. Do not expect a television in the room or a luxurious mattress and pillows. The lack... More

We had 3 days in Positano and the Venus b&b was perfect for us. Excellent position, clean and comfortable rooms and a stunning view to enjoy over breakfast. Gippy and his wife were excellent hosts, very friendly, not pushy and gave us reliable, honest advice about the area. We would have been happy to stay longer if we'd had the... More

The room was clean and tidy. Fantastic views. The service recieved from Gippy was outstanding - he is very friendly, and offers a lot of good advice. The hotel is approximately 10-15 minute walk up the hill from the Positano beach (but this is the same for most hotels in positano!). We found this hotel to be an excellent option... More

The Venus b&b was the perfect spot for our adventures in Positano and around the Amalfi coast. Gippy was nothing but friendly, welcoming and knowledgeable. Nothing beats honesty when you're in a foreign country and we could count on Gippy to give us honest advice. The rooms were very clean, perfect size, medium washroom, and a lovely terrace.
