Fantastic location and the staff could not have been nicer or more helpful. My room was clean and spacious and the bathroom was just gorgeous. Nothing was too much trouble for any of the staff and they went above and beyond to make sure the stay was what I wanted. The location in Positano was perfect, very central and sort... More

The hotel is situated at an excellent location in relation to all amenities. We we're staying there as we were attending a wedding and the staff we're extremely helpful. If I returned to Positano we would stay there again!

We stayed here for 7 nights at the end of August and we were so pleased that we booked this hotel. The location is excellent, 5 mins walk down hill from the main bus stop in Positano (Sponda) and close to the beach and a lot of fantastic restaurants. Andrea and the blonde lady (sorry we didn't get your name)... More

My second stay at this great hotel....fantastic location with street access close to buses and parking (no lugging your suitcase too far) although still an easy walk to the beach and ferries (past the lemon granita cart and the many wonderful shops). The staff are fantastic (they helped us with bookings for beach clubs, restaurants, transfers etc), the breakfast simple... More

First off, out of every area on the Amalfi Coast, Positano has my heart. This hotel is LITERALLY in the best location and made the experience absolutely fantastic. You can still get to the hotel via car which makes it much easier to tolerate when dealing with large baggage. Is it the fanciest hotel in the world? No it's not... More

I had a terrible experience living there . In the morning , when I was having breakfast , the waiter took all the food out without asking us if we had already done or not . Besides, the lady of the desk she had a very terrible attitude , she asked us to leave before the check out time, in... More

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

Nice rooms, nice bathroom... shower was nice and big. We did not have the breakfast so cannot comment. Reception were lovely. Oerfect location, easy to get down... 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.
