Like probably every hotel in Positano you'll need to be prepared for walking a lot of steps. 350 steps gets you to Palazzo Talamo but once you make it the view is brilliant. If you arrive by Ferry you have a few options - Option 1. there's a local bus which will take you eventually to the hotel or Option... More

Positano is quite an expensive destination comparing with other Italian cities/towns. We planned to stopover for just one night and decided to search for the most affordable yet decent accommodation. This place turned out to beat my expectation. Staff was welcoming. Very roomy, comfortable and nicely decorated. Even the cheapest room we booked has a private balcony overlooking the Mediterranean.... More

Location is great. View from the rooms is awesome. Staff is hit and miss. Hotel is old and a bit grungy feeling but what can one expect for 180eur a night. This is a no frills budget hotel in a great location.

We are two Australian couples in our 50's who spent 4 nights in Positano while touring Southern Italy. We chose Palazzo Talamo for its elevated position and views and we were not disappointed. The hotel is small and the rooms more than met our expectations, spacious, spotless, and overlooking the Mediterranean. The beach area was easily reached via steps next... More

Unfortunately, previous illness prevented us from spending all 3 nights at this hotel. Too bad. The hotel is wonderful as is the town. We had a great and fun filled dinner at the restaurant which is partly on the "sidewalk" next to the hotel. The view from the room was breathtaking. The breakfast very nice and the staff excellent.

Wow! We stayed in room 3 and the views from our patio/balcony were worth a thousand bucks. We had a very private balcony that overlooked Positano bay - a wonderful place to enjoy romantic sunsets. We were fortunate enough to book our stay during Ferragosto celebration & from our hotel room observe the incredibly loud & colorful fireworks (loved it... More

I have never stayed here and now never will. I want people to be aware of their credit card issues. I booked this trip March 9, 2013 for an August stay knowing that things get booked up. Then on June 15 I wanted to add a day on to front end of reservation and cancel day on back end. I... More

This hotel has a great location directly above the port. The views were outstanding and the balcony was a great add. The hotel was extremely clean and well kept. The rooms and shower was a bit small, but as expected in Italy. More than enough room for my gf and I. The staff was great and assisted us with numerous... More

We stayed for three nights at the Palazzo Talamo. We found the hotel staff to be very friendly, courteous and helpful. The hotel itself is a traditional hotel, the rooms well proportioned with bright Italian tiled bathrooms. The cleanliness of the hotel was of a high standard, such as you would expect in your own home. The inclusive continental breakfasts... More
