“Good for touristic Positano”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2014

A rather tacky lobby filled with garish art but friendly and helpful staff. The room was adequate. The breakfasts were excellent and could be taken outside on the varandah on the street overlooking the bay. Staff made a wonderful suggestion for dinner the first night - within walking distance of the hotel and a staff member actually accompanied us there. The second night at constantia restaurant that sent its van to drive us there was less successful - poor service, rude waitors - not recommended. positano is overrun with tourists and is difficult to get around in - avoid if possible!

First of all, I apologize for the delay in answer you. Thanks for the review. The lobby is also an art studio, where the artist Laura Libera Lupo paints her pictures. Our lobby is a welcoming place, but also a place of creation

This hotel is amazing just like the staff! I wish we stayed in Positano for longer than two nights. The hotel staff (I cant remember their names now) were incredibly friendly and told us the best places to eat and where to go etc. They organised for us as well as other hotel guests to go to a Trattoria restaurant which was amazing and organised a shuttle there and back. The rooms were incredible and we had a wonderful view from our balcony. If ever in Positano definitely stay here!

Rooms were spacious and the views were fantastic. We were right above the lobby, so it was a little noisy, but not too bad. Staff was very helpful in setting up dinners and helping with other requests. It's about halfway up the hill, so you can get quite a workout coming back up the steps from the harbor. There's also a shuttle bus from downtown to get back to the hotel. Breakfast was pretty good.

We loved the beautiful flowers that surround the front entrance. They were so accommodating and we had such a great time there. The breaksfast was unreal, far from the typical continental breakfast, but a wide variety of delicious foods.

Would definitely stay there again.

Room Tip: Every room has a view of the sea, you cannot lose.

My friend and I stayed here and had a little balcony off our room overlooking part of Positano and the ocean, on the 3rd floor I think. The beds were very comfortable, and the bathroom was comparatively roomy. Service was great, and the breakfast provided as part of our self-guided walking tour was good. I'm not sure, though, why hotels and some cafes in Italy seem to use UHT milk instead of fresh in their cappuccinos! I don't know about value for money as the hotel was included as part of the cost of the holiday, but we thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. It's a fair way up the hill from the centre of town, but we weren't there for the shopping.

First of all, I apologize for the delay in answer you. Thanks for the review. You've described with great simplicity and honesty to our hotel. I, however. I can assure you that we always use fresh milk. On the other hand, if you have been some days, you may have noticed that at 10 in the morning comes the milk truck and download fresh milk. If we use UHT milk, there would be no need to download every day

Art Pasitea was a nice way to spend 3 nights at the end of our 3 wks in Italy. Note that breakfast isn't automatically included and we got that surprise. Views are incredible and service was great. Great food recommendations in the area with options including pickup and drop off. Room was more than adequate and there are too many reasons to be out.

Room Tip: Get the view otherwise the numerous walks up the hill may not be worth it. Breakfast isn't neces...

We stayed here for our honeymoon and I absolutely loved it. I would stay here again for a return trip. I liked our room and we had an outstanding private balcony with two lounge chairs and a bistro table. We were specially accomodated by the hotel staff because we informed them it was out honeymoon. We felt at home with the friendly staff that greated us every day. We especially looked forward to "Bruschetta Time" (aka happy hour) every day. Ask for Emanuella - she's the best!
