hotel la bougainville is a small hotel in the heart of Positano. helpful staff and a wonderful buffet breakfast. I was delighted to have as many cappuccinos as I wanted without having to pay extra for them! We had a room "with a view" which is worth the extra money.

This was my second stay at the La Bougainville. It is in a great location not very far from the beach and close to shopping and restaurants. I arrived by boat on this trip and departed on the local Sita bus, and the hotel is relatively close to both the boat dock and the bus stop on the main road... More

Positano was the last stop in our 8 day Italy trip. We came to Positano due to a strong referral from one of my best friends in Montreal! WE WERE SO GLAD WE CAME HERE! This place is gorgeous, the roads, the people everything is unique and enchanting. The water is a short but steep 5 minute walk from the... More

We had a lovely time at Hotel La Bougainville. The location is perfect! Rooms are well equipped and clean, staff very friendly and helpful. Nice coffee at breakfast although I found the other breakfast options a little too focused on sweet rather than savory. We asked the hotel to book a transfer for us from Naples and whilst expensive, it... More

The Hotel La Bougainville exceeded my expectations. Every positive review that was written was spot on. The proximity to shops, the walking path to the beach, and the numerous restaurants for dining was perfect. The staff was always pleasant to talk to, and offered a number of recommendations for our stay. The hotel itself is just LOVELY. The colors are... More

My 2 girlfriends and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at HLB!! The staff were extremely friendly and very helpful. Recommended a great restaurant that locals like to eat at (name escapes me right now). One of my friends had twisted her knee in the beginning of our trip and the staff gave her an ice pack every night. It was... More

We'd return in a second! Clean, nicely decorated and tucked upstairs behind a bank ATM. Our suitcases were quickly carried for us. I had left my little shoulder purse in the van when we were dropped off first and was upset about losing it. The owner quickly called the driver and the purse was delivered back to me.

Great location, as it is on the lowest point of the road, so the closest to the beach you can get by car. The staff was very nice, helpful and understanding. The rooms were clean, but one of them had a smell of humidity unfortunately. The weather was fantastic still in October, so we spent most of our time out... More

The hotel is not for "pampered" among us. If you want to enjoy from Positano - better to pay more and get more. The Hotel location is a good and comfortable, close walking distance to the shopping area and the beach. Near bus station and car parking ( 20-30 euro per night ) The hotel is very clean and minimalist.... More

We booked this after our friends recommended the hotel for our Positano stay. We arrived a bit late, and the staff was accommodating, she even upgraded our room. We were so surprised at how wonderfully located the hotel was. It was important for us to be centrally located vs having a view, and it was worth it. We had a... More
