“Great location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2013

The hotel is a short walk down to the beach and near the shopping.
The Staff was very helpful and the breakfast offered a large variety.
It was so fun to have a view from your terrace. The shower was
large which was so nice.

Beautifully clean and ideally located for this wonderful holiday destination. Rooms with balcony and sea view a must , as the alternative means you miss out big time. Staff amazing, extremely helpful. The man , Raffaelle, serving breakfast particularly helpful and lovely! Short and pretty walk to the beach. Thank you for everything! Jackie

Room Tip: With balcony a MUST!!

We really enjoyed our stay at this adorable little hotel. The room was very clean and bright and we enjoyed the little veranda. It's very convenient to all the places you may want to walk to in Positano - close to all the shops and not too far for walking to the beaches.
One of the best parts of our stay was the incredible help of the two women who always seemed to be at the front desk! From recommendations to calling in reservations for us, they were great!
Oh, one more thing - the cafe latte and breakfast were wonderful! Thank you

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a sea view!

Stayed 5 nights and loved the hotel, we originally booked the cheapest room with the remote controlled high window, then requested a larger room with 2 windows but no view a few weeks before we arrived. This room was great, very big, had a double bed and a single even though there were just the 2 of us but it was great to have so much space. The hotel had no problems with us changing our minds as there was an available room. Good shower and bathroom and really good WiFi and breakfast was good with a nice view too.
The hotel is in the perfect location, right in the middle of positano, just a few doors down from the main square where the internal bus stop is and where the pedestrian streets start. There's a bank at the entrance to the hotel which is convenient and if your driving there is a car park across the street.
Upon arriving though which everybody does driving into Positano, we were mesmerised with the views and the beauty of the place and regreted not booking a room with a balcony and views.
We asked for an upgrade but the hotel was booked out unfortunately, this hotel is great value in such an expensive place like Positano, if your going there fork out the money and get a balcony room it would be so worth it.

Room Tip: Book a room with a balcony, also do the walking tour with discover positano tours, fantastic.

We just returned from 6 nights at Hotel La Bougainville and can still picture the extraordinary view from our balcony. The hotel is located high enough to get great views of the cityscape and the sea, but close enough to the beach, ferry and restaurants that we didn't get winded by too many steps down! The staff were very helpful suggesting restaurants, ferry companies to Amalfi and Capri and overall questions about Positano. Great value for the money!

Room Tip: Pay the extra for a room with a balcony! It's so lovely to sit and watch the sea by day and the...

I chose this hotel because of all the other reviews about the location and they were all true. If you want to be central to the square and quick to the beach, this is a great spot. We also found the parking across the street to be IDEAL. When you are driving on the tiny streets of the Amalfi Coast, it was so wonderful to have a close spot to park our car for 4 days. It was $25 Euro/day.

Very central location at top of town. Decent sized room for one person, maybe squishy for two. Took me 3 nights to work out how to close the window with the switch, as I forgot to ask every time I walked through reception. Delightful staff, impromptu Italian lessons from night-watchman...definitely value for money. I had to suck it up with the staircase at end of a night out though
