We were there for 2nights from 22nd October. Very clean, cozy, nice location, all the staff there were very helpful, great caffè latte in the morning (u can choose other types of caffè too!), really good for the price!:) The room was a bit tiny for 3 of us because we had to unpack our huge luggages, but still we...

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

We stayed for 2 nights at Hotel La Bougainville, it is in the heart of the town so very easy to get around. We love the hotel's staff - Andrea was very helpful with direction as this is our first time in Positano. The hotel is very nice and clean, our room have a small balcony with wonderful sea view...

My husband and I stayed for 3 nights at Hotel La Bougainville and loved it. The hotel is perfectly located and the reception staff (both daytime and evening) were extremely helpful in providing restaurant & travel advice and arrangements. The hotel is very clean, and the shower was the best one we had during our entire Italy trip. Room had... More

Great little hotel with an amazing location just above the heart of the town. If you head into Positano by bus, it is approximately a mile from the bus stop (across from Bar International) down into town. Just follow the crowd down into town. The room was clean and a decent size. We had a mini fridge. The bathroom was... More

Location was ideal. Staff were very friendly and helpful with good advice (they actually made restaurant reservations for us). Beach towels were a nice touch. Breakfast was well handled. Onward travel connection info was well organized and easily accessed.

A fabulous location, just at the town square where the pedestrian path down to the waterfront begins. Smallish but quite comfortable room that was very quiet. The breakfast room struggled with the number of guests and less sweets but a few healthier options would have been appreciated but all in all, a sweet hotel in a great central location. The... More

The hotel was in a great spot and the staff was excellent. Any questions or bookings I had, they took care of it. They were quick and just so easy to deal with. The rooms were nice and comfortable. As with most hotel rooms in Italy, it was small but I still enjoyed it.

We stayed here two nights during our honeymoon. Centrally located just at the top of the walk up from the marina, we were very pleased with this - somehow - "3 star" hotel. First of all, there was a porter at the marina who took our bags up to the hotel, up the stairs, and actually into our rooms for... More
