“Great location for Honeymoon!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2014

My wife and I travelled to Poitano and stayed here for a week. We loved the staff, location and the view. The room itself was very functional, but very workable. There is a family environment and the staff is there to make you feel comfortable. We loved it here!

We spent one week at Talamo and enjoyed our stay. First the positives, the view is fabulous, it is in a moderate walk to all of the towns attractions. You can walk to the streets to the water or the 300+ steps. Service was adequate and staff was friendly. Downside is the cramped bathroom, shower in #2 was so small, the soap bar was a reminder of traveling in the late 60's at small hotels. Wifi was poor in the room and better in the lobby. No face/washcloths. Breakfast was good, tiring of the same thing after 6 days! I don't have a comparison, of other places in town, but I would check around.

It would be hard if not impossible to top this great family owned and run hotel.
It is spotlessly clean, in fantastic shape and the staff are all caring and knowledgeable.
The rooms are spacious, and the breakfasts superb.
We found the location great, and a real bonus is that while the view is stunning, the balconies are shaded so you can actually sit outside on the sunniest days and enjoy it.
The only downside of our stay here was that eventually, we had to depart.

Room Tip: I doubt there is a bad room.

Mesmerising location and helpful staff. The view from the room is something to kill for and we just couldn't get enough of it. The staff also gave us helpful tips on how to go around the town and what to see. The location also offers a good amount of privacy from the tourist hub-bub.

This room was so charming we stopped inside the door to take a picture. We even took pictures of the bathroom. Very friendly staff. Restaurant dinner was excellent and included breakfast buffet better than the norm. They no longer charge for WiFi. This was the nicest hotel we stayed at in Italy

Nice hotel in a great location. The views for the rooms are spectacular but this means that you are a way from the main shopping and Restaruant areas. This means a decent walk up and down stairs but if you are mildly fit this won't be a problem.

The rooms are clean and basically appointed. Our shower (room 2) was broken but once this was raised with the staff it was fixed within a few hours.

The breakfasts are continental style as expected and the service was quick and attentive. The coffee was good......

The parking of our car up in the main car park was handled with ease and it only took around 10 minutes for it to be delivered when we called for it.

My only gripe was that the wifi was not free and the cost to pay for 1 hour was exorbitant. I find this practice of charging for a service that is free in most other places in Positano an interesting one as it forces guests out of the accomodation (where they could be consuming beverages from the bar or food from the restaurant) to other establishments that are more than happy to accept their patronage for a service that in real terms is very very cheap to provide.

By Positano standards this hotel is just a short walk up the hill. The views are unbeatable from this quaint hotel. The rooms are simple and the bathroom is tight but you're not in Positano to sit in your room. Great restaurants close by (don't choose the popular tourist ones, walk further up the hill for good, local favorites).
