3½/5 - andrea & staff very helpful & efficient, fabulous location, breakfast good (except crystallised honey), room a little stuffy interesting lift - modern but not all fixed sides easy downhill access from (sponda) bus stop but ferry is uphill (or downhill if departing)

Owners were fabulous and very helpful. Location was amazing. 5 mins to the beach. Just off the pedestrianised area so close to excellent restaurants which a number were recommended to us by the owners. Shower was fabulous. Rooms were good size. Breakfast was great, but would suggest adding some fresh fruit.. Overall a fabulous stay.

We stayed here only one night but definitely had the best shower and the best coffee of our holiday! We managed to walk past the hotel once before we found it - it is set back from the street, next to the bank. The ladies in reception were very welcoming and very helpful. Hotel is very convenient for the shops... More

A family run hotel in the centre of Positano.Immaculately clean and service excellent. Own fully stocked fridge and roomsafe. The view from our bijou balcony was magnificent. The sea and shoreline,contrasting with the towering,almost vertical granite hills. Ask for a balcony.....continental breakfast was excellent. The Bathroom was spacious tiled and the shower was perfect. The lift was small but ideal... More

Hands down, the best hotel we stayed in during our Italian holiday. Room was plenty big for the 2 of us, extremely clean, and delicious breakfast buffet every morning. Loved the "host" at breakfast, I didn't ever ask his name, but after the first morning, he knew exactly what each of us wanted to drink. Excellent hot chocolate, by the... More

Positano is a bit intimidating when you get dropped off by one of the crazy bus drivers along what could be considered a highway in this area of Italy. We ended up walking the wrong way and outside of Positano instead of down and towards the water. When we finally found La Bougainville (it is right on the only road... More

We stayed for 2 nights and it was perfect for us. The room was very clean and large for Italian standards. The view from the balcony was excellent, and there was a sun shade so you could sit outside and enjoy it. Make sure to request a sea-view room - the way the hotel is oriented the non-sea-view rooms face... More
