A very atmospheric hotel with a gorgeous garden in which breakfast and the restaurant (Al Palazzo) are located. We stayed in the heritage wing: the room was very comfortable with a cute terrace with sea glimpses, but required negotiating a lot of stairs to get to it.
The hotel has an excellent location lower down in Positano, not very far to the beach and restaurants. It's also a short walk to the central piazza from which buses and taxis leave.
Breakfast was excellent - fresh and delicious. Towels are provided to take to the beach, thoughtfully packed in a beach bag. Rooms are serviced twice daily. A big downside, however was lack of wifi in the room despite it being advertised. It seemed to work in the lobby.
A great way to travel to/from Positano (and Amalfi) is to catch the fast train to Salerno, walk straight out of the station towards the sea (10 mins) and catch the ferry to your destination. The magnificent views of the coast are well worth it, plus it is probably quicker than car or bus from Naples or Salerno.
If you are planning a trip to the Amalfi Coast, bear in mind that virtually everything (hotels, restaurants, ferries) shuts down from the end of October to April, with a brief re-opening around Christmas. This applies to Capri too. If you did find a hotel open during this period, not much else would likely be available.
