This place has to be a hidden gem!! I cannot believe for the price the view we had! This was the best place ever!! We had this view where we sat on our balcony every night with cheese wine and bread and watched the sun set. It was also in a perfect location with so many great restaurants literally right... More

Credit where its due..the views are fantastic and are essentially what one pays for. The hotel is located close to the city centre (around 5-8 min walk). The room we were staying in was Mulini room 10 was too small to be a 'superior' room even though we booked and paid for one. Would recommend taking the rooms on the... More

We are presently guests here. We are preparing to go to dinner. All of our clothing is crumpled in our suitcases. The hotel cannot provide an iron. The hotel does not have a single, solitary iron. Tonight is meant to be a special night, but instead, we are forced to wear the clothes that have the least crumples, rather than... More

My wife and I travelled to Poitano and stayed here for a week. We loved the staff, location and the view. The room itself was very functional, but very workable. There is a family environment and the staff is there to make you feel comfortable. We loved it here!

We spent one week at Talamo and enjoyed our stay. First the positives, the view is fabulous, it is in a moderate walk to all of the towns attractions. You can walk to the streets to the water or the 300+ steps. Service was adequate and staff was friendly. Downside is the cramped bathroom, shower in #2 was so small,... More

It would be hard if not impossible to top this great family owned and run hotel. It is spotlessly clean, in fantastic shape and the staff are all caring and knowledgeable. The rooms are spacious, and the breakfasts superb. We found the location great, and a real bonus is that while the view is stunning, the balconies are shaded so... More

Mesmerising location and helpful staff. The view from the room is something to kill for and we just couldn't get enough of it. The staff also gave us helpful tips on how to go around the town and what to see. The location also offers a good amount of privacy from the tourist hub-bub.

This room was so charming we stopped inside the door to take a picture. We even took pictures of the bathroom. Very friendly staff. Restaurant dinner was excellent and included breakfast buffet better than the norm. They no longer charge for WiFi. This was the nicest hotel we stayed at in Italy

Nice hotel in a great location. The views for the rooms are spectacular but this means that you are a way from the main shopping and Restaruant areas. This means a decent walk up and down stairs but if you are mildly fit this won't be a problem. The rooms are clean and basically appointed. Our shower (room 2) was... More

By Positano standards this hotel is just a short walk up the hill. The views are unbeatable from this quaint hotel. The rooms are simple and the bathroom is tight but you're not in Positano to sit in your room. Great restaurants close by (don't choose the popular tourist ones, walk further up the hill for good, local favorites).
