Beautiful hotel, amazing views. Nice staff (although some at the front desk more helpful then others). Pool area was also beautiful. Although I wished the shuttle ran more frequently (sometimes we had to walk down or up), My biggest gripe was the thin walls. The slamming of each guests doors in the morning was enough to wake you and keep... More

Excellent service, great breakfast with exceptional views over Positano, nice rooms and great rooftop pool. It is high up the hill, but there is a shuttle bus for those who have difficulties with the stairs.

Can't thank the people at the Hotel Villa Franca enough. We were travelling with a big party (15 in total) and even though only 1 of the party was staying at this hotel, they made the rest of us feel very welcome when ever we visited. The Foyer/breakfast room is stunning, with sweeping views over the whole of Positano. The... More

We stayed here for part of our honeymoon and the property food and staff did not disappoint. When we first arrived there was an issue with ants in the bathroom (which later we learned is common place in Positano) and they immediately switched us to an upgraded room. Welcomed with prosecco and truffles was a nice touch. The hotel is... More

We came to Hotel Villa Franca at the recommendation of a close friend. We were truly amazed at the level of attention and individual service from each and every person who works at the hotel. Our room was serviced twice a day to a spotless shine. Between the balcony and the supercharged AC, the temperature in the room was perfect.... More

Decor was just lovely, each room clean, updated (gorgeous really) and the staff are all extremely helpful and attentive. We stayed in the villa just before the main building which was absolutely wonderful.... More

I stayed in this hotel in August 2016. This is a very hot month. The air conditioner did not work in the room and we both woke up 5-6 times during the night from sweating. The access to the room was down a claustrophobic lift followed by another set of stairs which is barley accessible. The shower/bathtub was tiny and... More

We started our honeymoon in Positano and chose to stay here. We could not recommend this hotel more highly. The staff were friendly and accommodating to all of our requests for information, restaurant bookings and travel tips. The buffet breakfast was great and to eat while overlooking Positano was a highlight every morning. We found the hotel to be beautifully... More

Absolutely loved Hotel Villa Franca. We can't wait to come back. Everything was amazing from the location, perched high in Positano for the best views, to the staff and service. Everything was incredible. We were welcomed with a glass of Prosecco and a tour of the property. Our room was amazing, with great views of the Mediterranean. The room was... More

Pros - Great views from main level & roof - Clean - Balcony's Cons - Rooms are tiny with no closets - 12 lounge chairs only by pool - Small pool - Rooms needs some touch ups - OVERPRICED Verdict Its not a 5 star and probably not a 4 star either. It's not a bad place but extremely overpriced.... More
