“Great value for money”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 6, 2013

Just back from a 3 night stay. We were in Positano for a family wedding. Royal Prisco is perfectly positioned midway to the lower town and walking distance to the bus stop at the top of the hill for trips along the coast. The hotel is clean, comfortable and rooms furnished in typical Italian style. Breakfast is served in a lovely little dining room. Plenty of choice cheeses,ham, pastries and cereals. Staff were very accommodating and provided an early breakfast for our departure. Thanks! We would recommend this hotel for a short stay.

Room Tip: Ask for a sea view with balcony, stunning views overlooking bay. Family member had room with sky lig...

This is a best place in my trip. The hotel is very close to the city and has very nice and clean room the breakfast also very good. The place is not only good but also come with reasonable price.
If someone looking for visit Positano this is a highly recommend place.

Like Italy itself you have to enjoy the Prisco for what it is. I can understand why some visitors got frustrated with the Prisco however it is what it is. Michelangelo and Mario are great and very helpful. The maid is something else- it's true when people say she has a tidying fetish, and she's lovely. The rooms are large a bit kitsch and those with a seaview fabulous- many people used the view from the hotel to take pics of the bay. The walk down into town is gentle however the walk up to the best restaurants is steep and no good for unfit or people with walking disabilities. Access to the beach is almost impossible for such people. Few Brits there, lots of Americans from cruises. Great deli in the town square family run tops for value but no concept of queuing much to the Americans' disgust. Beware though Positano is expensive; 100 euros for a basic meal for 2 is not out of the ordinary

Room Tip: sea view is a must

My boyfriend and I had a lovely 4 night stay at this hotel. I would definitely stay here again in the future.

Pros:
Very clean - the cleanest hotel we had in Italy and the cleaning staff did an amazing job every day.
For Europe standards this is more of a 4 star hotel. I was impressed once I walked in with how nice it was. It was nicer than other 4 star hotels I stayed out in Italy. The value for the price was exceptional.
Big rooms and bathroom with a great sized patio with lounger and chairs. The view was great!
A true queen bed, not two twins pushed together. Only hotel who had this on my trip!
Location is good - it's still up a lot of stairs, but not as high as other hotels. I actually liked having the walk uphill so I could indulge in more Italian food. If you have trouble walking a lot I would recommend staying lower in Positano. The view is worth the walk if you are active.
Staff and owners are great at helping with recommendations, arranging luggage porters or anything else you may need. They are locals and know everything about this beautiful town.

Cons: Only real con was that the internet tickets only worked for short periods of time and only on one device at a time. Not a deal breaker by any means, but could have been more convenient since we like to use the internet to look at restaurant reviews before dinner.

A really fantastic hotel. It is way beyond its 3 stars. We stayed there for one week in the end of August. We got room No. 6, which has the most beautiful view i have ever seen in my life. The room was small but very nice and clean.The location is perfect, close to the shops and just less than 10 min walk to the beach. The owners where very kind. We had to leave very since we had to catch our flight at 8 am in Naples, so the arranged us a breakfast at 5 am.
I would recommend this hotel to everyone and i would love to go back myself someday.

Room Tip: Room 6 has probably the best view in the hotel

The Royal Prisco is a wonderful hotel! We stayed there on our honeymoon and loved every minute of it. Maria, Michaelangelo and Pasquale were very friendly and super accommodating. Our room was large and very clean. We had a beautiful view on the town below. It is located right in the middle of everything. Walking 10 minutes to the beach and great food. We cannot wait to go back and stay there again.

We stayed at Royal Prisco and loved it. The room was great with a balcony overlooking the city and water. The owners could not do enough for us. Breakfast was delicious and they will deliver it to your room if you wish. The location of the hotel couldn't be any better. Close to shops, restaurants and the main square where you can catch the SITA bus to Praiano, Almafi and Sorrento,
