I stayed at this hotel for 2 nights with my husband during a 10 day trip in Italy. The biggest mistake we did was that we ONLY stayed for 2 nights! From the moment you walk in, you can tell that is a special place. The staff all so friendly and smiling in their crisp blue and white linen uniforms; the manager roaming around smiling to everybody and making sure things are under control and and and... The estate is well furnished in modern, simplistic and elegant whites with a splash of color from the art pieces spread all over the place, which any staff member is ready to explain about. The food, breakfast and desserts are amazing. The rooms are also a pleasant surprise. There are 2 wings: the romantic section, and the relaxing section - difference being that the relaxing section has bigger balconies with sunbeds on them i believe, but i am not sure. We stayed at the romantic one. The location of the hotel is great. The town of Praiano is just a few minutes away from the busy Positano. The drive there from the train station was a bit disturbing, but we got used to the twisted road. The views from the hotel are simply serene. We rented a scooter to move around, which was arranged by the hotel staff and much more recommended that renting a car. Also the hotel provides a shuttle service to Positano at appointed times. We also took a half day trip to Capri, a must when you are in the area. I must point out that like most properties along the amalfi coast, the hotel is on the cliff and to get to the beach there is a pathway of 200 steps (the hotel staff pointed out the number). Going down is fine, but going up the steep stairway was a pain. The beach access that is provided by the hotel is good. It is a charming little place with good music run by a funny character whose name i can not remember! All in all, this hotel experience was a fantastic one, albeit an expensive one too! I would be happy to go there again in the future.
we stayed in room 310, it was a good one.
