“Lovely Staff, centrally located - a delight”
Reviewed October 3, 2013

This small hotel is located in center of town and great location for walking in any direction, especially to the beach. Helps you avoid a few hills and stairs!

Loved the staff, family owned and run. The breakfast was quite lovely, as is their intimate dining area and outdoor patio.

Highly recommended!

We've been all over the world, and have stayed in some pretty special places. Albergo Savoia is, without a doubt, the most charming and most special. First impressions are what makes a place great, and Emelia of Albergo Savoia gave my husband the best first impression by answering his questions efficiently and quickly by both phone and email. The hotel itself is charming, scrupulously clean, and nicely appointed. The staff was eager to make our stay as happy as possible with friendly service from everyone. They welcomed us to their "home", and for a few days we felt part of a family in a very beautiful city. Views from this hotel are spectacular! Location is perfect.......close to the beach area and nestled in with the shops.

We checked in early hoping that our room was ready so we could put our things down and get outside to enjoy the town. The woman at the front desk informed us that yes, the room was ready - awesome! She then gave us a very speedy runthrough of the room and left us to take our bags upstairs by ourselves. We asked if the room faced the ocean - she said yes.

We go up to the top floor of the hotel and walk into our room that reminds me of a hostel I once stayed in... Boy does this place need a makeover. I can appreciate the charm of tile floors and "vintage" touches, but this was just rundown and not the romantic experience we were looking for. Since my fiance thought we were supposed to be staying in a slightly nicer room (the room we booked on Expedia was called a "Standard King Room" - this was very, very standard..), he went downstairs to make sure we were in the right room, and if so, could we possibly move to a nicer room since we're only staying one night? The woman actually told him that the room we were in was their "lower end room" and of course they have nicer suites. But of course, they are all booked, so we cannot move. Fiance comes back to room and says he's not really happy with her tone/attitude and already we're not having a great time.

The room had a tiny balcony that just barely looked out to the water (we had a nice view of the town..) It was in dire need of a paint job, there were years of scuffs on the walls. All of the furniture was covered with old fabric coverlets that looked like they hadn't been washed in years. Walls were paper thin - we could hear everything from the room next door and hallway. Bathroom was big, they could have provided a few more toiletries..

The pros:
- great location in Positano - high up enough to have great views of the city, but also close enough to the beach that the walk down/up isn't all that bad..
- breakfast on the 1st floor is delicious - try to get a seat on the terrace for optimum experience
- the woman at the front desk the next day was very nice, helped us check out beach towels for our morning dip in the Mediterranean and also let us keep our bags at the front desk after checking out so we could enjoy a few extra hours walking around town

We went out for drinks at Cafe Positano and dinner at Da Vincenzo (amazing meal - highly recommend it!!) and then out at Music on the Rocks and Fly, and ended up staying out until about 2AM, so barely spent that much time in the room (a good thing).

I stayed at the Residence La Tavolazza (B&B) right down the road a few years ago with a friend, and quite honestly the rooms were about half the price and were definitely nicer, even though would expect a hotel to have nicer accommodations.
I would recommend Hotel Savoia but I would definitely opt for a larger "higher end" room.

Excellent service, outsatnding location and wonderfull views, Imposible to ask for more. The room was just perfect in size and the balcony overlooking the ocean and the town was breaktaking. In the morning the complementary breakfast was excellent with unlimited expressos fresh made. The Hotel is located in the main street with in walking distance to everything, Positano is an special town and Hotel Savoia will not disappoint you.

We were so fortunate to get the last available room at this charming hotel. The staff was very helpful as we made plans and changed them, asking questions repeatedly via email.
The location was perfect! There are no streets for cars near the beach, but at the top of the pedestrian alleys and stairs sits the Hotel Savoia!!! Many hotels are far from the shopping so be careful choosing where to stay as you will be walking up or down stairs and streets. Nothing is flat in Positano except at the beach.

I stayed 7 nights in this hotel, it is in an excellent location, I had a single room and so had a garden view rather than ocean views but still a comfortable room, modern bathroom facilities and the breakfast was good and had a good range of food.The staff could not have been more helpful and were always friendly, this included reception , bar and breakfast, highly recommend.
