Staid here for one night during a longer trip travelling around the amalfi coast. The hotel is too expensive for what you get. Rooms are clean, but that is the only positive. Rooms are very dated, bathroom was even worse. Owners are very unfriendly; not helping out there guests at all. We checked out in the morning and went to... More

This is our third stay here it has outstanding views of positano and the western peninsula. We get the premium room with jacuzzi for the view balcony which is money well spent. Service is good and breakfast is excellent. We love it here Praiano is the nicest spot on the almalfi coast.

It's true is had an amazing view from the restaurante, that's all. The lady from the bar it's also very very nice. The bedroom make you want to go outside because it's not pretty. It is way overpriced, we paid for a room with sea view and all we got was a tree in front of the sea, no view.... More

This is one of the best places to visit. The location, view alone, is extraordinary. Me and friends eat here every time we visit Praiano. Food is over the top. Very fresh seafood along with amazing pasta, appetizers, wine and dessert. They really take care of you here. The family that owns the hotel, by far, are some of the... More

Delightful small hotel in the centre of Praiano. It is right on the busy main road but that is not apparent once inside and it is exceptionally convenient as buses for Amalfi and Positano stop right outside. (Cars not recommended !) There is not a lot to Praiano but it seemed a much nicer and quieter place to stay than... More

What a nice experience. This hotel is centrally located, family run and the rooms were clean and nicely decorated. The view from our balcony room was breathtaking. Breakfast was plentiful with meats, cheeses, croissants, eggs, cereals, juices and great café latte. We also had dinner there the day we arrived and enjoyed our meal only to be topped by the...

So... let's get one thing out of the way, right away. This is not a 5 star hotel. But, we did enjoy a 5 star experience during our week long stay at the wonderful Hotel Smeraldo! (Our trip was actually in May 2011.) We opted for the superior room with a Jacuzzi tub on the balcony. (It did take a... More

I went to stay at Hotel Smeraldo with my boyfriend for one week during the off season last February. I am a world traveler and read great reviews on Trip Advisor thinking we found the perfect spot.

Dear Madam, I think there has been such a great misunderstanding as nobody told you should have been refunded. The owner told you he would have checked your situation and refunded you, just in case of contingent mistake. But that sounded such as unusual. We have checked it and You paid your staying by your credit card, and € 330... More
