If you travel to the Amalfi Coast, Positano is perhaps the most charming town of any along the rocky shores and cliffs that dot the coastline between Naples and Sorrento. Hotel La Bougainville is located a good, steep walk from where ferries dock at the port of Positano, but the affordability and charm of the hotel hugely make up for... More

Stayed at La Bouganville with my sister for two nights, and our stay was not long enough! Such a great place, in a really convenient location, with the most helpful staff! From help with directions, to a restaurant recommendation, to access to towels to use to hit the beach, we had access to everything we could have needed! Would highly... More

We stayed in this quaint Hotel in the heart of Positano which was beautiful with seaviews. Parking was across the road and all the shops and restaurants are in walking distance. Breakfast was great and the staff very helpful and accommodating. Well worth the stay. Short walk to the harbour to catch the next ferry out to Capri.

This place was a great value for the convenience. It was right on the corner off one of the drivable roads (off the main Amalfi Drive) and the walkway to the beach. They also offered beach towels, which was great since we didn't pack any. The breakfast wasn't anything terribly special, but still a decent start to the day. No... More

We went to Positano for a friends Wedding so wanted quite a cheap hotel for our stay. We were very pleasantly surprised. In relation to the other hotels in Positano is was one of the cheaper ones we found. Our room was very basic with a window above the wardrobe which you couldn't see out of as it was so... More

Stayed at this small and beautiful hotel for almost one week. We had a nice view to the sea in our room! The location was perfect with only 2-3 minutes to go to the beach! The staff at the hotel was very friendly, and they helped us with booking of nice restaurants, or suggested other place to see! They also... More

We had a really lovely stay in Positano at the Hotel La Bougainville. The room was bright and fresh and we had the sea/Positano view which was really nice. Our room was on the small single lane road which runs through Positano about 1.5 floors up from street level. In the morning we would get out on the balcony and... More
