We stayed for 4 nights and each night and morning we were woken up by noise from the hotel staff moving furniture and cleaning upstairs in the bar area and in the hallways, the hotel is tiled which doesn't assist with noise reduction. The rooms were spacious but we had ants coming into the room from the balcony. The rooms... More

Hotel was as per description, nice swimming pool and spacious bedroom. The walk down to the main tourist area is very difficult, especially with the heat of the Italian summer. A shuttle service would be ideal.

Still don't know how it's a 4star hotel. Out staying almost looked like a horror movie. First the hotel is very old, the bathroom smells like urine. In need of an urgent improvement. Our room was below the restaurant so late at night and early in the morning we would hear chairs and tables being dragged around. Second, the staff... More

While I would recommend Positano as a holiday to everyone, I would steer them clear of this hotel. The front desk staff were quite rude when we asked them questions, especially when we reported ants in our room. They said their colleague would come and talk to me and their manager as well. No one came to the front desk... More

Had a beautiful view from our room. Room was clean and had decent appointments. Breakfasts were included and quite extensive with a great variety. Staff was polite and accommodating. Hallways were extensive and initially confusing . Hallways could have been better maintained and were in need of of new carpet. Nevertheless , it was considered to be well priced .

Our room overlooked the pool and the views of houses on the side of the hill. We had a bus stop practically at our door. 10 mins drive to the beach or you could walk down the 400 steps to the town. Room was very good and airconditioned. Fantastic breakfast, a lot to choose from. Freshly squeezed orange juice. Freshly... More

I stayed at this hotel in July 2016. After reading some of the reviews on trip advisor I wasn't expecting too much. Pros: Our room was a 2 bedroom sea view room. The room was clean and there was no mould in our 2 bathrooms. The air conditioning was great. I did have a few small ants crawling on me... More

I thought the hotel had a pretty good view of the ocean. We were not close to any local bars by foot at night so we decided to stay at the hotel restaurant. Good move because they had live music until midnight. I would recommend this place and thank you to girolamo for his service and Mario at front desk.

This place used to be owned by the royals before. Being in Positano itself is pretty magical--besides the stay. I'm grateful and happy to be able to enjoy Positano no matter what though. Great shopping nearby. Food is the best at the beach (not at the hotel)

From reading previous reviews we didn't have high expectations for this hotel but we actually had a great time. The good: The pool, view, complimentary breakfast (including a juice bar and fresh croissants) and no bedbugs in our room (I saw a previous reviewer had posted some pictures) We were not troubled with the beautiful 400+ staircase to the town...
