In a residential area, in the heart of Positano, there is located the ancient building which guests the hotel Villa Gabrisa, an elegant and refined hotel owned by the Rispoli family. The careful choice of each detail, just like Murano chandeliers or Capodimonte ceramics, makes every room special and the hotel's privileged position, just few minute walk from the beaches, wraps it in a fairytale atmosphere that every guest can feel it from each room balcony or terrace, which overlooks the sea.

Beautiful villa-hotel run by a family. Beautiful setting, gorgeous views! We had a junior suite with very large balcony and breathtaking views of the sea and mountains. All personnel are very helpful and nice. On site restaurant is also just as amazing with great wine choice and delicious food. One of the best stays! So relaxing and endlessly beautiful.

I highly recommend Villa Gabrisa! The room is very nice, quite big, there is also jacuzzi in the bathtub. The view is beautiful! To get to the beach, if you want to go by foot...prepare yourself for a lot of stairs, but there is also a bus (Interno Positano) and taxi. The breakfast was very good and we had dinner (never got the chance to get here for lunch), but the food and the staff were very nice. They offer also transport to the airport.

We stayed at Villa Gabrisa on our honeymoon in June 2019. First of all, I was impressed by how clean everything was. Our room was bright and had a balcony overlooking the sea. The staff was so friendly, from the receptionist (Carolina) to our waiters in the restaurant. The food was excellent btw. My husband's linguini and clam sauce was the best he's ever had. We had to take the Interno Positano bus 10 minutes to the city center, but we didn't mind. It was very cheap transportation, and it was kind of nice being a bit away from the crowded center of town. Loved this hotel and would highly recommend it!

No words can describe Villa Gabrisa. It was beyond anything I could have imagined. My wife and I went for honeymoon and arrived to be greeted by Claudia with cold ice tea! We went to our room, 309 with a terrace view, that was at the top. It was smaller, but perfect for two people. As we walked out from our room, we had THE MOST incredible view! No words can describe it - ocean, coastline, and mountain ridge. The hotel was pristine, we heard no noise being at the top, and our rooms were cleaned 2x per day! They even prepped our room for sleep. All the staff were so nice!! On top of that, the restaurant was BETTER THAN a Michelin star restaurant we went to. The food from beginning to end was amazing and we even got to meet chef Emilio. Breakfast too was also amazing! Roberta, Arcangel, Francesco and Claudia were all so nice and made us feel so welcome. Location was perfect - slight walk to main streets down steps if you like walking and a a little removed from more busy streets so it is not crazy busy. The perfect place! No words can describe this place. God blessed us with this heavenly location. We could have stayed to a month more. I would rate this number one in Positano to stay. Please go and enjoy!!

We were highly disappointed in Villa Gabrisa. It felt more like a hostel than a hotel, just really run down and smelly throughout the hotel. The elevator nearly gave us a claustrophobia attack. They have a 12pm check out and when we asked for 10 more minutes to gather our belongings, a rude lady with bright red hair at the front desk said no, we have others checking in. LOL... so they're checking in exactly at 12:10pm? Other hotels are so much kinder and more lenient. This place is also just messy. A cat and one of the owners sleeps on old furniture in the lobby and they have junk all over the place. In the rooms you feel like they're 20 years old except with a newer shower. The worst was the noise. The walls are PAPER THIN and you hear everything from neighboring rooms. I would give it 1 star but the showers were nice (at least in the junior suite). By the way, we stayed in the junior suite, I can't imagine how awful the regular rooms are.

Response from obiondo, Owner at Hotel Villa Gabrisa

We are sorry that your experience, in our family boutique hotel, has not been as expected. Unfortunately, experiences are very subjective and sometimes the choice of the hotel is not appropriate to the personal needs and taste. From what we understand, maybe you were looking for a larger and more modern hotel with a minimalistic style, obviously the opposite of what we are, a small family-style hotel in a historic building of the town. Our guests have also a convenient check-in and check-out times. Our staff needs time to prepare and check adequately a room, considering the limited time between a check out at 12.00 and a check in at 2.00 pm, especially in high season like now. I think that every guest expects to have their room ready at the check in time. The rooms have just been renovated and maintenance is continuous, the furnishings chosen reflects the style of the building, whether they are of Italian craftsmanship or antiques, always to seek a continuity with the historical period of the building, despite having some modern elements inside. All our guests and especially the owners of the building are free to be able to rest in our sofa area when ever they prefer. As well described, we are a pet friendly hotel and our Persian cat is resident in this building and for people which are having issues with animals, again, maybe this was not be an appropriate choice. We always thank our guests, because of choosing our hotel, they support our family business, the 25 members of the staff and also the many Italian companies which they provide their handcrafted luxury products used in our hotel.
