1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2013

Hi we booked a room at Casa Soriano in Poitano! Well we were taken to the room - it was not a very nice room at all! It did not look like any of their rooms advertised on their site! I would definately not recommend this place at all! Looked like a cheap hostel! The cooking facility was a small hot plate with camping equipment! It had a trip adviser on their door! Totally shocked!

Room Tip: Did not stay long enough to add anything except it is very difficult to find and the traffic is horr...

We stayed here last summer in August and the hospitality could not be better. We travelled with 2 young children and a baby and most other places would not accept a reservation as we were a family of 5. The location was great (there is a beautiful restaurant less than a minute away going the opposite direction from the town - make reservations there - it was great) and we could walk everywhere we wanted to go. The room was clean, spacious, and offered a beautiful view,although I dare say, it is not hard to find a beautiful view in Positano. I highly recommend this place to stay especially with children as the owners were very gracious and considerate. They even had a playpen set up for the baby with lovely blankets.

We (3 college girls) stayed 2 nights at Casa Soriano on our first time visiting Positano and had a great experience! The owner was so friendly, sweet, and helpful! The room was clean, comfortable and affordable. It was a great location-- near Café Positano and walking distance from the beach! I would absolutely recommend it!

We stayed at Casa Soriano for 9 nights in April and May 2013. It was great. It is located half way down the hill from the first SITA bus stop at Positano coming from Sorrento and the local orange bus stops outside. Being half way up the hill is a great advantage in this terrain! The room was spotless, comfortable and serviced every day. We also had a kitchen. But nothing beats the view from the terrace outside our room - truly breathtaking. There is no wifi and no TV but we didn't miss it. We had wifi at the cafes. The family live one floor below and they were welcoming, helpful and non-intrusive. It's not like a 4 or 5 star hotel - rather it's like living as a local. We thoroughly recommend it.

We arrived in Positano and we were welcomed by the sweet smell of orange blossom. Inside the gate of Casa Soriano we were warmly welcomed by the owners and we all climbed the steps through the lemon and rose garden to arrive on the terrace in front of our rooms. The terrace overlooked the Mediterranean and the beautiful town of Positano. The rooms were large and very clean. All in all we had a wonderful relaxing stay!

Positano was our dream destination and Casa Soriano made it even more special. Great value, simple but clean and spacious room with breathtaking view.... the family is always helpful with lovely smiles... we have found what we were looking for. We recommend to all Positano lovers this little heaven.

Grazie mille, ci torniamo. Saluti da Istanbul!

We will never forget the views from our room at Casa Soriano. We were luckily placed on the end room which has the best views (although all rooms have a good view). Imagine having a panoramic view of the sea from the bathroom!

Keep in mind this is a little, budget, family-run hotel. Don't expect 24-hour concierge service and all the amenities. This is a great place for young travelers and adventurous couples. There is no internet and no tv so bring some books and be prepared to clear your mind.

We found it useful to have a small fridge and hot plate to prepare breakfast and some meals in our room so we could save a little money and enjoy the spectacular terrace overlooking the sea.

You may have some trouble communicating with the owners if you don't speak any Italian, but that is all part of the adventure! They are SUPER sweet and good with hand gestures, so you will get by. You must also pack very lightly (backpacks recommended) as there are many steep stairs.

We highly recommend getting to Positano and Casa Soriano!

Room Tip: Ask for the end room with the best view!
