Yashvi S wrote a review Nov 9
It was an absolute honour to stay at this adorable hotel. Honestly, at first we were a little unsure if we have made the right decision, but later the staff and the service provided by them have made our stay so convenient. The location is perfect, it's just a 5min walk from the beach and the street is buzzing in the night! Don't think twice, book your stay. The breakfast is worth it as well. :)

Hotel's Favorite
Superb little hotel, very well managed and perfectly located with the kindest and best staff. With just 16 rooms this is a lovely small boutique hotel. The location is perfect. 8 minute walk to the port and beach up hill but very few steps - a rarity in Positano! We had the economy room which i was nervous about from looking at the reviews but I shouldn’t have been. It was lovely. Small but not that small and had everything you needed it in it and more. You aren’t staying in Positano to stay in your room! Value for money was excellent. Nothing in Positano is cheap but this was extremely reasonable. The staff were the stand out feature. Everyone was so helpful and friendly from way before we arrived with all my questions to the moment we left. They helped with restaurant reservations, and ferry times too. Salvatore and his team are fantastic and they will make you feel completely at home offering a 5 star service all round. The whole experience was very positive and more like 4 star than 3 star. I recommend you stay here - but book in advance as they are full everyday all summer! We were very lucky to get in here!

Our stay Oct 21 thru 27 exceeded all our expectations. We felt like we were staying with best friends. Salvatore and Chiara met us with a smile and were always available to make dinner reservations, book ferry tickets, and answered all our questions in perfect english. Our room was postcard perfect, with a lovely balcony facing the sea and immaculate. Breakfast (my favorite) is available off the lobby or delivered to your room and is more then anyone can eat, simply fantastic and the best way to start your day. My traveling companion celebrated his birthday while there and upon returning from a day trip to Capri we were surprised with a bottle of chilled Prosecco and a card waiting for us on our balcony. It really doesn't get any better than this. They also arranged for a porter to meet our ferry upon arrival from Naples to transport our luggage to the hotel which was a big plus after flying for 16 hours. Again, they arranged a car service to take us to the Naples airport the day we were leaving and provided a to go breakfast with cappuccino which I would highly recommend. Forgot to mention they are also a 5 minute walk to the beach. Our 6th trip to Italy and without a doubt, our best. Grazie mille!!! to you both for all you do, it was so wonderful and we will be back. Best regards, Mahshid and Christopher from Scottsdale, Arizona.

Such great staff at a cute little hotel in the heart of positsno. It’s easy to get to it and can get to the port in under 10 mins. Everything I walking distance and the staff is SUPER accommodating. I stayed in the French room for 3 days and it was comfortable and spacious for 1 or 2 ppl.

Amazing hotel right in the middle of Positano. Easy walk both down to the beach and back up. Fantastic breakfast as well! We booked a superior room and it was SO worth it for the view! We spent most of the days we were there relaxing on the balcony reading and sipping wine!

This is THE place to stay in the Amalfi Coast. This hotel is in the absolute best location. It is centrally located and close to all the best shops, restaurants/bakeries, the beach, and the ferry port. Because you are centrally located, it is less strenuous going up and down the hill (the route has a sloped path v.s. going up and down strenuous stairs all the time). There is a bus stop diagonally across from the hotel and a taxi/driving service office directly across from the hotel, so you have plenty of transportation options if you want to explore more of the coast (the towns along the coast are spread apart from each other). Even though the hotel is in a central location, we found it to be a quiet and peaceful place to stay. The room was clean and beautiful. We had a picturesque view of the town and ocean right from our hotel balcony and window (what a beautiful view to wake up & fall asleep to!). Each morning, you have the option to either have breakfast in the downstairs lobby or to have a tray sent up to your room which you can enjoy on the balcony. You just simply fill out a form the night before checking off the menu options that you would like. What made the hotel most special for us was the hotel staff. They go above and beyond to help you plan your trip (offer suggestions), make reservations (for restaurants/excursions/drivers), and answer all your questions (even before arriving to the hotel). They are very responsive, kind, and welcoming. Each morning, they would leave us a complimentary bottle of chilled water in our room which was perfect for excursions. We stayed there during our wedding anniversary in September and they provided us with complimentary wine and a congratulatory message. When we went to the beach, they provided us with fresh towels and a “Hotel Bougainville” bag to carry them in. We even had complimentary flip flops for both of us in the room. Staying at this hotel was hands down the best hospitality experience we have ever experienced. I would HIGHLY recommend staying here over elsewhere in town. This hotel has been awarded as one of the highest-ranking places in the world to stay multiple times and after staying here, I can understand why. Don’t hesitate to book here!

My husband and I visited Italy for the first time ever this September 2022. We wanted to stay on the Amalfi coast and heard Positano was beautiful. It is but Im not sure I would stay there again. We much preferred Capri and would have preferred day trips to the Amalfi coast. It is beautiful though... The hotel was very basic and pretty pricy. I don't know about the rest of the hotel but it did not look like the pictures here and did not have any view at all. The staff is very friendly and helpful and the room was spacious and clean but not luxurious at all. Location was great though.

All we could have asked for in Positano and more. Room was lovely with a balcony. The shower was very small but did the job. Breakfast every morning was great with gluten-free options for my wife. Salvatore was our main point of contact with the hotel and he was very, very helpful with any questions or helping to set up our guided tour of Pompeii. Great location on the "flattish" part of Positano so you could get up the hill or down the hill fairly easily. I'd highly recommend the hotel to anyone considering it.
