Dimora del Podesta
Ranked #7 of 53 Positano B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed October 14, 2012

Positano is an amazingly beautiful town and Dimora del Podesta was the perfect place to stay. The service provided by Elisha and Pietro was outstanding. The breakfast served on the balcony each morning was fresh and delicious and then there was the outstanding view in front of you. You really knew and felt you were on vacation. The guys would sit down and ask you each day what you were looking at doing and how they could help you - what a great feeling to think someone was there to assist you. The rooms were spotless and large and very attractive. The guys' dad who owns the wonderful restaurant downstairs served us supper on a nicely set table in our room one evening in front of our open balcony. Wonderful experience all around.

I cannot even begin to write the kind of good reviews this place deserves!! Not only is it beautiful and clean, but it has a view that is aww inspiring. The main point Is the family who runs it. They are the most amazing group of people you could meet. They are so genianlly helpful and they make you feel like a member of the family without smothering. Brothers Elia and Pietro ran the BB and their father and brother Daniele ran the Resturant down stairs. I feel like not only does everyone need to visit positano before they die, but they need to stay here. I would recommend them to anyone and everyone and I know everyone I traveled with would. !!!! ( we loved our stay <3 Erin#1,Erin #2,Marco and Jen "or Jane")

Dimora del Podesta is one of the best B&B experiences we've ever had. Firstly, the family that owns it is so welcoming and friendly which made our stay great from the start. Secondly, the family owns the very highly rated restaurant "Saraceno d' Oro" right below the B&B so we could hear the great Italian music and smell the deliciousness from our balcony which made the atmosphere so enjoyable. What was even better is that they provide their B&B guest with 10% off at the restaurant (definitely take advantage of that). Also, the prices were really reasonable considering it was such a busy tourist time along the Almafi Coast in general. We loved that our breakfast was served on our balcony each morning so we could enjoy the views and coffee outside. The room was HUGE too which made us very comfortable. The bathroom looked like it was recently upgraded and was very nice as well. They are just great hosts - for example, my husband forgot to bring shampoo and soap with him so Pietro actually gave him his personal stash to use! Definitely stay here...you won't regret it!

Great b&b - very large rooms & a lovely balcony where you will be served breakfast every morning! Lovely fresh croissants & fresh coffee- very nice! There is a garage right next door to the b&b which is great if you have a car - we pre-booked our car & paid 15 euros a day - ask the b&b they have the details. location is great - halfway between the cheaper beach & the "posh beach"! The family restaurant downstairs serves lovely food & you will be offered a 10% discount as a guest of the b&b.

Pietro ( our host ) was very interested in helping us reach the B&B using email and SMS. The B&B also has a restaurant with good prices and a 10% discount if you stay at their B&B. Room cleaning was done daily and very good. They offer you the main fridge with various juices, water and snacks if you urgently need some ( eg: you get thirsty is the middle of the night ). You will pay for those. The breakfast was served on the balcony. Basically you get everything you need.

How lucky we were to stumble upon Dimora del Podesta! Run by two brothers - Elia and Pietro - the B&B has some of the kindest and most heart-felt service I've ever experienced.

I dealt with Elia in making our booking. We were originally looking at staying in a villa they own in Praiano, but it was booked. In that process, Elia said there was availability in the B&B, and I snapped it up. So glad I did!

Our room in the B&B was impeccable - it was large, had a beautiful tiled floor, and modern bathroom. There was no AC, but a powerful standing fan was in the room and did the trick on hot nights. The balcony was lovely and was a great place to take our breakfast every morning, which was served, no less, by either Elia or Pietro. Every morning we'd chat with them and learned so much about Positano, as well as a bit of family history, which made the stay feel more personal. Both brothers were helpful in providing recommendations on places to go, things to see, and places to eat. Elia booked us tickets for a small boat trip to Capri, and constantly offered to help us out to make our journey that much more enjoyable. I felt like we had our own personal concierge!

The service was truly outstanding - I read the booking dates for the B&B wrong, so we didn't have a place to stay our final night in Positano. The B&B was booked out, but Elia found us another place in no time. Pietro even carried our luggage to the other hotel, which was further evidence of their commitment to customer service.

And, as if this all wasn't enough, their family owns the Saraceno d' Oro restaurant below the B&B. The food there is fantastic and affordable. Guests who stay at the B&B get a 10% discount on dinner at the restaurant, which is a bonus.

If visiting Positano, don't look to stay anywhere else by the Dimora del Podesta!

This family run place was great! Brothers Pietro and Elia did everything they could to help us - plus, being local guys, they grew up in the area and have a plenty of recommendations. Super-friendly and helpful. The B&B and location itself was also fantastic. Clean, light-filled room with amazing view from our private balcony over Positano and the Med beyond. Private brekkie on the balcony every morning was the best way to start any day....anywhere ! We were in Italy for 2 weeks, with Positano being my last stop. I thought every B&B we stayed at was good, but Dimora del Podesta was the best of my whole trip....couldn't recommend more.
(Plus - their other brother runs the restaurant underneath (Sareceno d'Oro).... which is also great!)
