“Faultless”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

We arrived quite late in the evening after taking the train to Salerno and a ferry to Positano. None of the locals appeared to know where Casa Nilde was and directed us up the stairs - bad move! Casa Nilde is a few doors away from Hotel Villa Franca a 1000 step schlep. Take the bus (€1.30) or a taxi (€18).

When we arrived we rang the doorbell and the locals sprang to action,. The lady from the shop across the street motioned to us as a young lady on a vespa pulled up, she opened up, showed us to our room and handed us a key before announcing that the owner would be with us shortly. Which indeed she was, but unfortunately she does not speak any English so for me and my limited language skills this was a bit of a problem, but we got by.

The room was clean and tidy and of a high standard, the bathroom fabulous. The balcony and view was amazing! No fridge in the room was a little annoying. The breakfast in the morning was fantastic but all very confusing, there was a communal kitchen only in use for breakfast but the food was put onto trays, could we take this into the room? What time was breakfast?

All in all Positano is beautiful place and Casa Nilde a lovely place to stay. Although there is no way the walk to the beach is 5 minutes!

What a disappointment. Firstly, we arrive to find no one there to let us in (even though we had prearranged). Three phone calls later a woman from the shop scross the road let us in and we were told someone would be by to give us the keys etc. we waited two hours and no one showed. It wasn't till breakfast the next morning anyone bothered to see us. Useless anyway, the lady who arranged breakfast spoke no English so she was no use whatsoever when it came to information. We booked this hotel on the premise that it was 5 minutes from the sea. This is a downright lie. It is at least 15 minutes and even longer when returning by the almost vertical stairs. The breakfast was a joke. Packaged cereal, long life juice, old grapes. The coffee machine spewed a drink that I can only describe as diabolical. Oh, and when we arrived in our room for the first time, I had to brush the long black hairs of the bedspread! Which, by the way, is not the pristine white one you see in the photos. It was an old, yellow one complete with stains. And the bed were soft - only when you compared them to sleeping on the tiled floor. It also says that there is a safe. There is, but it is not anchored. A thief coul just pick up the whole kit and caboodle and walk out. We left early for another hotel.

Room Tip: There are no good rooms. Choose another hotel.
