“Memorable stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2013

I was so fortunate with the selection of this hotel! This being my first trip to Positano, I had no idea how significant location was. If you are too close to the harbor, there is too much traffic and noise; if you are far from the beach, you have to do a lot of climbing up and down hilly streets. This hotel is located -in my view- in the best possible part of town. The beach is easily accessible, as are restaurants and shops, and the local bus stops a few feet from the hotel.
The hotel is immaculately clean. Our room was spacious for the three of us [parents with teen-aged daughter]. The lobby is beautiful with its gorgeous floor tiles. The continental breakfast and the variety of coffee -all delicious- were a pleasure to consume on the second floor terrace of the restaurant in the relaxed atmosphere, watching Positano wake up. The hotel staff and the wait staff were friendly, helpful and courteous. This was a definite winner. Highly recommended!

This hotel was great value. It is centrally located in the heart of Positano, within easy walking distance of the beach, bars, shopping and restaurants. We had a comfortable standard room on the 3rd floor with a king size bed and large balcony - very clean. At first I was disappointed we were not ocean view, but came to love the view of the cliff-side homes - especially at night with all the lights on. Breakfast was ok - not the best hotel breakfast in Europe, but the coffee was good and you are able to order off the menu for a minimal charge. The staff were all very friendly and helpful. Will definitely recommend this hotel to friends.

Room Tip: I'm sure you can't go wrong with any room, although the higher floors will have a nicer view...

To start with, Positano is one of the hot spots on the Amalfi coast, but the minute you pass through the door you leave much of the hub-bub behind. Our room was on the upper end with a high-ceiling, very large king-bed chamber, a small alcove with a twin, an enormous, well outfitted bathroom and our own balcony overlooking the town, beach and hills. Each member of the staff we encountered was unfailing helpful and friendly. Their Italian continental breakfast was one of the best we encountered. It was served in a beautiful large reception room with dining tables, sofas and a large outdoor balcony. The hotel's location was central and just steps to the walkway to the shopping and beach area.

Room Tip: Because the hotel has many different types of rooms, work with them to pick one that is most suitabl...

What a special place to stay. The people went out of their way to be help. The views from our room were beautiful, and the beach was easily within walking distance. We didn't to wait for the little bus to take us up to our hotel, we would walk there. Yet, we were high enough to see beautiful views up to the mountain and down to the water. The hotel is simple and has the most beautiful tiled floors. It was a delight to stay there.

This small hotel is located in center of town and great location for walking in any direction, especially to the beach. Helps you avoid a few hills and stairs!

Loved the staff, family owned and run. The breakfast was quite lovely, as is their intimate dining area and outdoor patio.

Highly recommended!

We've been all over the world, and have stayed in some pretty special places. Albergo Savoia is, without a doubt, the most charming and most special. First impressions are what makes a place great, and Emelia of Albergo Savoia gave my husband the best first impression by answering his questions efficiently and quickly by both phone and email. The hotel itself is charming, scrupulously clean, and nicely appointed. The staff was eager to make our stay as happy as possible with friendly service from everyone. They welcomed us to their "home", and for a few days we felt part of a family in a very beautiful city. Views from this hotel are spectacular! Location is perfect.......close to the beach area and nestled in with the shops.
