“Excellent, will be back for sure”
Reviewed July 16, 2011

Very reasonable hotel in Positano - great location, fantastic vista from your own terrace with sun-lounge and table and 2 chairs, electric awning to keep the sun at bay in the afternoon, but leave it up in the morning for fabulous 180 degree view of Positano and the sea - bliss with the perfect breakfast served. All the staff were very friendly and I would recommend this place for a well priced, decent sized room, clean, large bathroom hotel.

Room Tip: I think they all have a sea view, but worth checking as the terrace is stunning day or night.

I found them on Summer on Italy. Everything was as described. Great location, just far even up to get the views and some exercise, but not so far that it was a struggle to get anywhere. Very friendly and helpful staff. I hope I'll be back. Wifi only worked in the reception area.

Room Tip: Siren 1 to 3 have excellent views.

My husband and I were booked into the Residence Alcione as part of our Cooking Vacations package. Our apartment was absolutely fabulous. Very, very clean, spacious with a view of the ocean and town to die for (and as Positano is a "vertical city," positioned nicely so not too many steps to the sea, which is a BIG deal!). As this is a residence inn, it does not have an attendant at the desk, but the person in charge was right next door at the boutique (with a discount at the boutique for "Positano Wear" was a bonus). Our breakfast each day was delivered by the sweetest gal (sorry, don't remember her name!) and the breakfast was a lavish feast of pastries, breads, spreads and coffee. Add ons, such as meats, fruit and cheeses were available for extra. However, in our apartment, with a frig, we went to the small grocery and bought our own! Our room was thoroughly cleaned each day, and the staff was so very helpful about directions, restaurant referrals and such. They were always patient and the fact that they spoke English was certainly a plus. And I will remember the best coffee ever served for the rest of my life, a huge pot of thick, rich, Italian coffee and a pitcher of steamed, hot milk. Oh, if I could only make it at home! The coffee alone would bring me back to Residence Alcione again! This is the hotel to choose in Positano! Oh, and my only gripe, if you will, about sleep quality had nothing to do with the hotel. The city is full of Vespas and they can be noisy buzzing by. Just bring ear plugs and all is well!
