“Beautiful views and easy beach access location!”
Reviewed May 19, 2014

We loved our stay in Positano and Hotel La Bougainville made for a wonderful place to rest. We stayed 4 nights in an ocean view room with balcony which I would highly recommend. We enjoyed sitting on the balcony in the evenings and looking out to the ocean. The room was clean and simple but comfortable and the shower was quite large. The staff was friendly and gave us good recommendations on where to eat. The entrance to the walking path down to the beach is just across the way from the hotel which was ideal for us spending our days at the water. We would gladly stay here again and recommend it to friends and family visiting Positano!

Near the centre of town but high enough for a view of the ocean and the surrounding hills, La Bougainville is modest but stylish, with excellent beds in smallish modern rooms with lots of light and everything you need: hanging space for clothes, hair dryer, toilet and bidet, rain shower, and an ample continental breakfast with juice, tea, coffee, cereal, fruit, croissants, yoghurt, hard boiled eggs, meats, cheese and pastries. I'd stay again!

The Hotel La Bougainville is well positioned in the centre of Positano. Our room with balcony nd sea view was well proportioned and well equipped. There is no real public space in the hotel, other than reception and the breakfast room, but that wasn't a problem. Breakfast was ok, notva great choice but adequate. Although there is no bar the hotel can provide bottles of wine in your room. Overall a welk priced and central hotel, with few frills

Room Tip: Sea view rooms are good

Spent 3 nights at the La Bougainville, Positano. Very nice, very clean, excellent service. The location is perfect for Positano. Had a room with a great view of the city and the bay. Would stay here again.

Though the hotel was tough to find, it was worth the loop back around the hill we had to take! The room was clean, nicely decorated, and had a balcony with an amazing view. The woman running the hotel was very nice and accommodating and the continental breakfast was wonderful! A quaint little place, right in the heart of shopping with a breathtaking view.

Our family was in Positano for a week, and I needed to book an inexpensive, yet decent, hotel for my 20+ daughter. La Bougainville was the right choice. They had a decent breakfast offering every morning, the room was totally adequate for her needs, nothing fancy, just all of the necessities in a clean environment. Because there was a front desk to pass before you could get to the hallways with rooms, I felt that she was secure too. I did not like the idea of a young girl staying alone in a hotel, but felt comfortable after checking her into Hotel La Bougainville. The front desk people were more than helpful as well. Would stay here myself on our next trip to Positano.

What a great find! The location is perfect, just a short walk up from the beach through the lovely town. Bed very comfortable and wi-fi excellent! Staff very friendly and helpful. We liked it so much we stayed and extra night.
