We arrived hot, sweaty and dusty in Positano after walking the famous 'Walk of the Gods' from Bomerano and were amazed by this lovely hotel! It is in a fantastic location right near the Piazza del Mulini (start of the pedestrianised walking streets down to the sea, and also one of the main bus stops). It is on the first floor so you have to walk a flight of stairs off Cristoforo Colombo (right near the bank ATMs). It's also not far to walk to Spondo for the main bus line to Amalfi and Sorrento,
The hotel: the reception staff were very friendly. There is free wifi in all areas with excellent connectivity (get a login and password at reception - it lasts 5 days). You have to walk up another set of stairs to get to the rooms. The breakfast spread was very generous - breads, pastries, toast, cereal, eggs, cheese, ham and tomatoes, fresh fruit - and a great start to the day!
The room: it was a bit small for 2 people (not a huge amount of floor space for two suitcases) but there was a cupboard with in-room safe and a balcony that opened out for views of the town and sea! The air conditioning was wonderful in the hot weather. There was also a fridge with minibar.
The bathroom: beautifully tiled and a large rainwater shower-head with a double-sized shower. The toiletries were hotel-specific (refreshing body lotion well appreciated after a week of hiking!) and there were large fluffy towels.
Overall we had a fabulous stay in a beautiful hotel - superb location and wonderful facilities! We would love to stay here again!
