For the money, you get a sweet little spot up the mountain. I read all the negative reviews and agree with some of their comments. But those were not deal breakers. The bottom line is that the rooms are clean, with a nice lanai. The view from the restaurant veranda is quite lovely. The morning breakfast was delicious with many choices. There are 400 steps down toward the center of town...but then I took the city bus back up for only 1.30 euros. And the bus stops right at the hotel...convenient! I'd stay here again...a decent hotel that didn't break the bank!

Beautiful view, clean room. AMAZING breakfast! Fresh croissants and great quality products. The terrace is enchanting! Very friendly and professional staff. The only negative point (but that is true for pretty much all hotels in positano) is that there is not much room for parking. Expect between 18 and 22 euros per day for parking.
Also the 400 steps are clean and safe. It gives you a little workout on the way back but its worth it. They bring you right in the middle of the town and the view is extraordinary!

Nice place, location, very polite and friendly personel. Gave great service. Had fun with Sabatino, Luca and Pasquale the last night before leaving. The guys were funny and extremely nice. Would definitely go back.

The grounds of the hotel are quite lovely, but the staff is rude and so un willingly to be helpful.

The hallways are threadbare, but the room was quite lovely..especially the balcony.

The restaurant was a horrid experience. We attempted to have a cocktail in the outdoor longe, but were told that we could not do that. Then in the dining room we asked for a cocktail and the most angry waiter said that we had to drink in the bar. So confusing. The restaurant was lighted like a cheap kitchen. No candles or soft glow. The menu was very confusing and offers very little that we cared to eat. Angry waiter and poor food was a sad occasion. A ruined night in paradise.

The worst was when the food came and the lobster was rotten. The smell could not be mistaken. How the chef could allow it to pass out of the kitchen was u believable. It was moldy and plain rotten.

A beautiful evening was totally spoiled and wasted. Then in the lovely bar, deck area where we might have had a drink there was someone singing an interrupting the starry silence.

Room Tip: Avoid this hotel at all cost.

The hotel is high up in Positano so you aren't in the heart of the town, however I preferred that because it was very quiet and peaceful when you get back to your room at night... you don't have to hear all the loud tourists and restaurants... To get down to the main town/beach is 400 steps and same steps to come back up. There is a shuttle to avoid walking back up but it comes every half hour and always full of people... just easier to take your time and climb, only 10-15min. I had a balcony, sea view and part view of the town and was amazing. Service of the hotel was fantastic and breakfast on the terrace was nice. WIFI works only in lobby and terrace bar... there is also a nice big pool. Great place to stay in Positano away from the crazyness of the town.
