“Perfect Place to Stay!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2014

Stayed at La Bouganville with my sister for two nights, and our stay was not long enough! Such a great place, in a really convenient location, with the most helpful staff! From help with directions, to a restaurant recommendation, to access to towels to use to hit the beach, we had access to everything we could have needed! Would highly recommend La Bougainville; can't wait to come back!

We left Positano on the 20th of May (reluctantly) Loved it. We were offered an upgrade to sea view for an extra 40 euro per night which we very gladly accepted. Amazing views! Nice rooms, nice bathroom... shower was nice and big. We did not have the breakfast so cannot comment. Reception were lovely. Oerfect location, easy to get down through the shoops to beach or up to restaurants and look outs up the mountain. If you drive the parking is directly across from the hotel, which is handy. There are no elevators so getting the luggage upstairs can be abit of a struggle! Would stay here again. Missing it already.

Room Tip: Definitely upgrade to sea view . No better view than Positano!

We stayed in this quaint Hotel in the heart of Positano which was beautiful with seaviews. Parking was across the road and all the shops and restaurants are in walking distance. Breakfast was great and the staff very helpful and accommodating. Well worth the stay. Short walk to the harbour to catch the next ferry out to Capri.

This place was a great value for the convenience. It was right on the corner off one of the drivable roads (off the main Amalfi Drive) and the walkway to the beach. They also offered beach towels, which was great since we didn't pack any. The breakfast wasn't anything terribly special, but still a decent start to the day. No need to fill up anyway with all the great food around. The rooms were comfortable with some decent bath products, too, and combined with the air conditioning, the nice shower was very refreshing after a hot and sunny day on the beach. We even had a nice balcony toward the sea, which was a very pleasant view. I would definitely go back.

We went to Positano for a friends Wedding so wanted quite a cheap hotel for our stay. We were very pleasantly surprised. In relation to the other hotels in Positano is was one of the cheaper ones we found. Our room was very basic with a window above the wardrobe which you couldn't see out of as it was so high, however the room was very clean, the staff were lovely and the breakfasts were good. It is situated just off the main pedestrian area of the town so not many steps to climb to get to the beach. All I will say is if you want more than just a place to rest your head then ask for a room with a view.

Perfectly situated in the main Piazza Mulini of Positano, Hotel La Bougainville is the ultimate score while discovering this amazing village. The personalized service, attentiveness along with cleanliness is above and beyond. Our room, #10, was the perfect size including a large bathroom with charming cobalt tiles with the best view of the iconic mountainside..all while relaxing on the terrace and in bed! We look forward to returning on our next Positano vacation!

Room Tip: Room #10 - Sea View!

Stayed at this small and beautiful hotel for almost one week. We had a nice view to the sea in our room! The location was perfect with only 2-3 minutes to go to the beach! The staff at the hotel was very friendly, and they helped us with booking of nice restaurants, or suggested other place to see! They also gave us very good tips for trekking routes. It was nice and clean in and around the hotel.
