Very hard to drive in small town as main road very busy but you can jump on bus in front of hotel and move from town to town for 1e. Beautiful small beach at bottom of hotel but be prepared... More

The location was great and views were spectacular. Great breakfast - other reviews stated the breakfast was very good with a great selection and variety and this was true. This was important as we were travelling with a group of 9 of us and 4 of those were young adults (3 boys with large appetites) The view while having breakfast... More

I stayed at Smeraldo last week. It is a nice hotel with absolutely perfect views to the sea and very friendly and helpful personnel. NB! We particularily enjoyed the restaurant because of very good meals.

We stayed at hotel Smeraldo on June 21-26. Our room was one floor down from the reception, which was nice and easy to walk to. The room was a desent size with one extra single bed next to our queen bed which was kinda weird, but was not a big deal to us. The shower was a bit small but... More

This hotels relies on it's great location to attract customers, unfortunately the service and facilities are lacking. The room we had was dated and although clean, had a damp and musty smell (there was signs of damp coming through the ceiling). The towels provided in the decidedly average bathroom were a thin, tea-towel like fabric - rather than towelling you... More

Amazing view on ocean - unbeatable! We booked a superior room with a jacuzzi on the private balcony. The hotel is family-run and the owner still works with a ledger, and not a computer system, so he gave our room away (claimed it was Expedia's or some other agencies fault) and we had a tiny room with partial ocean view....

All though we did not stay at the hotel we did eat at the restaurant 3 times during our stay in Praiano. The food was excellent and very well priced. The views are some of the best in town. The staff (Petra and Pasquale)were very welcoming. I would not hesitate to stay at this hotel. Me and my wife will... More

The Smeraldo was a great hotel. Run by a family made it so comfortable. The room was spacious and very clean. We had a balcony overlooking over to Positano. Location was perfect for getting yourself around to Positano, Amalfi, or Sorrento. Of course we were right next door to Chiesa Di San Gennaro, which is a gorgeous little church, it... More

If you want to travel all around the amalfi coast, this hotel is very well located in the center between sorrento and ravello. Much closer to amalfi and positano. Has a nice view, well attended by the owners, and very important, has parking!.

My husband and I just returned from spending five days at Hotel Smeraldo in Praiano. We found the hotel and the proprietors to be very very welcoming. They made sure that we were treated as hotel guests taking care to insure all our needs were met. They actually made our stay very comfortable not to mention that the views from... More

An excellent restaurant, specializing in local dishes, overlooks the bay of Positano and Capri.The garden, lobby, bar lounge, and staircase to the beach are all enjoyable and convenient attributes of the Hotel.But it is the warmth and kindness of the owners that make this the perfect vacation spot both during the relaxing winter season as well as the lively summer season. ... more   less
