Positano can be an expensive place but please don't miss out on going to the best city in the world - you can stay there affordably by booking at the Venus Inn. My daughter rented a two level apartment and found that it was clean and comfortable and within walking distance of everything (beach, restaurants, shops). Gippy was warm and... More

This place was incredible. The rooms were clean and comfortable. There was a small kitchenette. And each room had a balcony. Breakfast was basic but there was always plenty of good, strong coffee. However, there are three things that make this place stand out. The price, the owner and location, location, location. This place is extremely reasonable well priced for... More

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....

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!

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
