“Beautiful but be careful”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 5, 2013

Sept 2013 - we booked in advance and when we arrived realized there were about seventy steps to our room and no elevator. No way our knees could have done it for six days. Crowded, small highway to get there took 1 1/2 hours to go 20 miles. The hotel is absolutely beautifull and has the most gorgeous view I have ever seen and the people were friendly, helpful and refunded our money so we could go to a larger hotel with an elevator. I would recommend anyone stay here but if you can't do stairs, book one of the two rooms on the top floor. Fantastic Place

Hubby and I arrived on our 3rd stop of our Italian honeymoon in Salerno by train from Florence. (Love the trains there, so efficient). After getting to Salerno we took a bus to Amalfi and then transferred to another to Praiano. Taking the bus along the cliffside, while beautiful, was very scary for me! We made it to the hotel and we thrilled to find a very helpful young man checking us in, showing us the room and recommending their restaurant down the road for dinner, awesome! Our room was amazing, so big, AC was on and there was a balcony also with a view of the sea...LOVE!! The bathroom was a bit small but had all the amenities you require all in perfect working order. We stayed for 3 nights and enjoyed every one on the 'relaxing' part of our honeymoon (not that 400 steps here or there was always relaxing). The breakfast they offer was sufficient and definitely ask if you like tea or something other than regular coffee. Their entrance in to the sea (cant really say beach) has some lounge chairs and a ladder in to the sea and is nice for a more private swimming, but I'd reccommend hitting the nearby beach. Overall a wonderful stay, fantastic service and beautiful hotel!

Room Tip: Definitely choose a room with a balcony! We had the Diamond room and loved it!

You can swim in the sea off the rocks, the ladder into the water didn't seem too stable, normally I would say that it was me being wussy but my husband mentioned it as well. Staff were lovely and spoke great English. They partner with a restaurant down the road which serves great food and they will come and pick you up. The room was clean bright, and had a nice balcony and we watched the sun rise from it. Almost forgot to say breakfast was lovely.

The major asset of this hotel is the location. It is located on the cliff overlooking the sea in Praiano where it is not to busy in fact it is so close to the sea and the cliffs are so steap that the view consists of a 180 degree seaview. Praiano is located halfway between Amalfi and Positano the major tourist spots in the area. The standard rooms are adequate but small as you can emagine in a location such as this. We gpt a 12 sq m room initially but after our request we were moved to a little larger standard room with itsown balcony. All this was no problem and done with an attitud of extreme helpfullnessand a smile.The breakfast does not have any hot fpod however it is more that adequate with lots of cookies,croisonts,cheese and 2 varieties of cold meat. The hotel has 3star rating. The sea can be accessed by stairs that go down to a platform where ypu can dive dirwctly intothe sea. The bus stops directly in front of the hotel and is easy to use when exploring the Amalfi coastline. We hired a car to get to the Amalfi coast and then used the bus once we were there. The hotel has parking. Parking along the coast is very scarce and expensive. Take your own swimming towels if possible because these are provided at a cost of 5€ per towel.
A god holiday experience on the whole.

Spent a week here and can't say enough about the hotel, the staff and the beauty surrounding it. Very convenient to shuttles for Amalfi, Positano, Ravello and the staff makes it even easier.

No matter where you are in this hotel the vistas as magnificent. The trek up and down the mountain to our rooms and to the decks were just a great exercise after eating all the wonderful foods Praiano has to offer.

Truly a memorable vacation and thanks to Luisa, Concetta and Pino and, of course, our night Limoncella nightcap............it was a wonderful vacation! Hightly recommend this place to anyone considering the Amalfi Coast, which is a "must go"............We loved it!

Room Tip: Most of the rooms are lovely. We had a room on the lower deck with a huge terrace and a fig tree th...

We had booked an apartment up the hill but that fell through and we found this hotel by chance. From the beginning, they were very helpful, the hotel, excellent. Because we had not pre-booked, we stayed in four different rooms in seven nights. We pretty much got a full tour of the rooms. Each room was excellent. The first room had its own terrace, the second had a terrace outside the door, the third had its own balcony and the last one had a terrace outside the door but the views from all rooms were amazing, especially the third room, wow.

The staff were so helpful, giving you a steer on buses, tours, all other things to do.

They didn't have a restaurant on site but they have a quick shuttle down the road to their restaurant. Also, restaurant Costa Diva is next door. But you do have breakfast out on a balcony with spectacular views.

There are steps down to a private swimming area, a nice surprise. Just a few metres from the front door, there are steps down to the beach, great place to go for dinner (Bar Mare Petit for reasonable grub and a laugh!).

It is ideally located. A short walk to Praiano and buses to Praiano, Positano and Amalfi all outside the front door. A 100 metres down the road, the steps lead up to the Path of the Gods walking trial (bring some kind of walking shoes).

Parking is free. For €110 to €130 B and B in a 3* hotel, I recommend Hotel Torre Saracena!

Room Tip: All rooms are excellent. They all have great views, either private or outside your door.
