“Loved Pasitea!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

Loved the Hotel Pasitea!!! Breathtaking views from our spacious balcony, airy toom with large bathroom and good breakfast buffet in the morning. A perfect location in a boutique hotel in one of the smaller towns along the coast. The front desk helped us to rent a scooter and we had a blast zipping around the town for 24 hours. They can also arrange transportation to restaurants in the area, which you will want to take advantage of due to the vertical streets! lots of climbing!

Room Tip: Pick a room on the third floor for larger balconies. We moved up a floor after our first night and...

Thank you. Positano is beautiful, because it is a vertical city. Renting a scooter, you could enjoy the wonders of the coast. You had a great idea.

We spent three lovely nights in Hotel Pasitea. The room was enchanting, the view was romantic, and if that weren't enough, the staff was over the top helpful. Anything that Enzo recommends: go there and do it! His suggestions were all first rate and made for a lovely time for us in Positano. Everyone was so nice, especially Emmanuella. We loved our stay at Hotel Pasitea and hope to come back

Thanks for the nice review. I say, again, that we're just trying to be a perfect frame for Positano. The real beauty is the view that this beautiful country offers to its customers. We do not have a true service restaurant, just a nice and tasty "Bruschetteria". It is a pleasant alternative to restaurant

We stayed at the Pasitea for 5 nights recently and were MORE than happy with the Pasitea. The staff was very attentive and helpful to all of our needs. They were also spot on with all of their recommendations for restaurants in the area. The room was just beautiful- clean and spacious with a view that cannot be beat. I highly recommend this hotel to anyone looking to stay in Positano- 5 stars. Looking forward to our next visit!

We spent 6 nights at the Pasitea last week and enjoyed our stay very much. The room that we stayed in had an amazing balcony that gave us a beautiful view of the sea and much of the town and mountainside. It also had 2 lounge chairs (which were perfect for enjoying the sunshine) and a small bistro table with 2 chairs that we sat on the enjoy a cocktail as well as the view. The room itself (#20) was quite different than any room that we'd stayed in before having a circular tiled shower by the bed which created a bit of a problem with the humidity in the room but definitely added to the art concept of the hotel. We did find that the air conditioning in the room didn't seem to work as well as we would've liked, the room stayed between 24.9 and 24.3 degrees everyday which was a little warm for us trying to sleep. The nights were nice and cool and it would've been great if the patio door had a screen door over it so we could have kept it open to let some cool air in without letting our little lizard friend on the patio into the room. The bed was surprisingly comfortable and the housekeeping staff were great at coming in everyday to clean up and replenish and toiletries. One thing that was noted in earlier reviews was that there were no safes in the rooms so we were careful to take minimal electronics and jewelry with us however we were pleasantly surprised when we got there to find that they do have safes now which is a must have when staying in a hotel. We found the staff to be extremely helpful with any requests that we had, especially Antonio who was always quick to greet us with a smile and ask how we were and if we needed anything. He was more than happy to refer us to restaurants (I would highly recommend Mediteraneo and Trattoria Taglietti) and arrange shuttles as well as helping us with bus information to helping us get around Positano. The breakfast buffet was good, nothing fancy but enough to fill us and get our day off to a good start. All in all we loved the Art Hotel Pasetea and would stay there again for sure! Highly recommend this hotel.

Thanks for the nice and complete review. We always try to improve reading reviews of our customers. We have put in-room safes just because we read the demands of our customers on tripadvisor. I will think carefully about what you said to me on the window of room 20. Regarding the air conditioning I think the problem is that the thermostats of the chamber 20, did not work well. Now we have adjusted

Stayed here for 3 nights during October. Highly recommended to anyone visiting Positano. Excellent value, amazing views, spacious rooms and fantastic staff who went out of their way to make our stay memorable. Staff gave excellent guidance for restaurant recommendations as well as which establishments to avoid. The hotel also has road access - a blessing which means no hauling of luggage up/down the steep steps of Positano!

My husband and I stayed here for 4 nights on our first ever trip to Positano.

Pro's:
-Friendly staff, especially Antonio!
-Clean and comfortable rooms. I didn't want to leave the balcony! We were staying on the top floor and had an enormous balcony with the most spectacular views.
-Free breakfast
-STUNNING views. This deserves it's own point because they were that phenomenal.

Con's:
-Some of the staff at the front desk continuously tried to push certain restaurants, which they must have some stake/partnership in. When you come back from dinner you're asked where you dined as if they are keeping tabs. The recommended restaurants were empty whenever we'd walk by. It was just a strange little hiccup to the normally very friendly service
-As some others have noted, LOTS of steps to get down to the beach. We are pretty fit 30 year olds and it was quite a trek but we came to enjoy it. You also always have the option of not taking the stairs and using the street, or taking the bus. The views from being higher up are worth it!

While this was a charming hotel and we were treated very well, I would probably try somewhere different next time for variety.

Thank you for the wonderful review. I'm sorry a bit for what you write about the restaurants. We're just trying to help customers, because in a resort town like Positano is easy to make wrong choices. I'm sure you've eaten well in the restaurants recommended by the hotel. But probably you write these things because you believed in some other restaurateur who we do not recommend
