“Great hotel in great location”
Reviewed September 7, 2012 via mobile

This hotel was great. The rooms could use a bit of updating, some loose tiles here and there and the shower is a little hard to use, but the view and service more then make up for it. Drinks are great value! Would definitely recommend.

We stayed here on the reccomendation of a friend who has been many times. Positano itselfis a magical place and the staff at the hotel made the stay so much more enjoyable. They welcomed us warmly and carried our bags to our room, we had a room on the third floor with a magnificent view. The room was immaculate and very spacious. The breakfast was excellent and even though we came down late one day they were still happy to accommodate us.
I would highly reccomended staying here, Maria was wonderful.
My only tip would be close the windows after sunset or take mosquito spray as I got some bites.

Room Tip: Request second or third floor - but only if you don't mind stairs there is no lift.

Everything everyone says good and bad is true...so as a seasoned traveller always have your wits about you.

Pros
Value for money
Perfect large room clean
Close to medieval center of town
Views to die for
breakfast adequate and included in tariff
All rooms on upper floors are beautiful request second or third floor, corner rooms are bigger with 2 balconies.

Cons
On main road so some road noise
Yes..it is true Maria does profit from all her suggestions and her powers of persuasion are strong! So be careful...you don't have to go to the restaurant she suggests or have your washing done or book your trip to Capri through her! There is an element of Italy Bali style here....

However the other family members were lovely pleasant friendly and polite. Yes I would recommend this hotel as overall we had a fabulous time !

Room Tip: Top floors only Romm 58 is wonderful

Maria and her family could not have made our stay any more comfortable. They helped us organize all of our activities and restaurants. The hotel is in a great location, close to the beach, but high enough to enjoy amazing views during breakfast.

Great, family owned hotel, in a perfect location, great view, beer is cheap and cold
Clean, accomodating, and affordable
Maria and her family are just great, and you're in the middle of the town
We will definitely stay here again

This hotel was absolutely perfect.

Very well priced for positano- with breakfast included and amazing sea views. Our room was huge, with a large balcony overlooking the ocean and the beautiful town.

Very helpful staff, great location, easy walk to the centre of town & the beach.

Would highly recommend this hotel to anyone.

This was a great hotel in a great location, only minutes to walk to the shops, restaurants and the beach. Great family room with beautiful views, very spacious for 2 adults and our 9 year old son. Very friendly, helpful staff, special thanks to Maria as everyone says could not make you more welcome. Great breakfast as well, and they make you a decent coffee! This is a little gem in Positano - value for money, brilliant views, fantastic place to wake up in the morning - did not want to leave, and the bar prices are ridiculously cheap. Must stay if in Positano - looking forward to our return.
