The BB Venus Inn was a lovely place to stay in Positano. The location is great, it is around a 15 minute walk through the windy inner road. The walk itself takes you past plenty of restaurants, shops and bars, many of which have stunning cliffside views of the town. We arrived via boat and decided to take a taxi... More

I booked through expedia. JP the owner e-mailed me confirming the reservation. He welcomed me when I arrived and was very informative and friendly. Made me a great coffee in the morning. This 4 room BB is near a bus stop which takes you to the town square where you can catch the boats that go to other locations. The... More

We couldn't have stayed at a better B&B! Gippy greeted us and helped us with our luggage and had cappucino's and warm croissants every morning for us on our terrace. Best host ever! Our room was very spacious and comfortable, with a beautiful view of homes built into the mountain and the sea. We loved sitting on the terrace in... More

This is a wonderful place to stay with a delightful couple who go out of their way to make your stay completely worthwhile. The B & B is a short distance from "downtown" Positano which really makes you feel like a local. Gippy arranged for a driver to pick us up from Naples airport and also on the return journey.... More

Positano is a little piece of heaven in Italy! Amazing little town, with lots to see and do! The Venus Inn is a very simple down to earth type of place but his host Gippy is amazing and makes the stay in that B&B completely worthwhile! Gippy knew at what time we were getting there and went to pick us... More

The manager helped us plan our time in Positano and made excellent restaurant recommendations. He was super helpful and new everyone in the town (not hard since Positano is pretty small). The location was excellent and the room was clean, but the beds were a bit spartan. Still worth it for the service and the price was a bargain. Highly... 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
