“Perfect Stay on the Amalfi Coast”
Reviewed November 12, 2012

I am very happy we chose to stay in Praiano at Hotel La Perla. Town is not as touristy as Amalfi or Positano. The Sorrento bus stop number 11 is at the end of the drive way and very convenient on arrival as well as for day trips to surrounding towns. The views are lovely. We had a room facing the Bay with a balcony and shuttered doors. There is an incline from the street to the hotel entrance and then about 20 stairs up to enter the lobby. There is no elevator, so also stairs to your room. The top floor is open for sunbathing and great views. Room small but very nice. Breakfast offered a nice variety of fresh fruits, pastries, yogurt and cheese. For this trip, the hotel web site offered better rates than the various hotel booking sites. Great place to start your Walk of the Gods Path.

The view - the view - the view. I cannot overemphasize how amazing the view is from the balconies at La Perla. Wifi is only available in the dining room and the adjacent porch where breakfast is served, but the same view is available there, just one floor down, so there is no hardship at all. Breakfasts had much to choose from, so we were always satisfied. The hotel is a bit far from the center of town, but the walk is interesing, and the bus stops just at the end of the driveway. I would recommend the hotel to anyone. And did I mention the view?

Room Tip: Anything with a sea view is fabulous

A very nice little hotel with very friendly staff and a fantastic view from the restaurant balcony.
The room we got was one of the least expensive. It was small but big enough for us and had no view (goes with the price). Worse: the A/C was not giving enough cold air and the bed was too firm (this hurt us the most).
The hotel is close to the road for easy access to take the bus or the car. Still very little traffic noise disturbing you. Lot of stairs to climb to get in but few compared to other places in Praiano. Close to a fantastic small beach for swimming, eating, renting a boat or just reading a book in the shadow.

We stayed in for 5 nights in May 2012 after staying in Amalfi. We had a sea view room and the views are just amazing. The room was spacious and clean. We enjoyed the meals cooked by the hotel - sometimes we were the only ones there and sometimes the room was full. The woman on reception was very friendly and helpful. We used the hotel as a base for walking (e.g. Walk of the Gods from Positano to Praiano and others in the area) using the public transport which stops virtually at the hotel and was easy to use (and exhilarating at times when big buses meet on the narrow roads). The breakfasts were plentiful and substituted with fruits from the garden and sitting out on the deck looking out at the view was a great way to start the day. There are many footpaths parallel to the road that can be used to walk round Praiano (if you've got the energy and legs for it after other bigger walks!). We would definitely go back here if we had the opportunity in the future.

Beautiful hotel. Great, friendly, helpful staff. I booked a single room - really cheap!! No balcony but a nice window with view of Amalfi coast. The other rooms have balconies, and the breakfast balcony has amazing views. A nice quiet place to stay away from touristy Positano. Bus stop at hotel can take you to Positano in 15 minutes. Beach only 5 minute walk - beautiful beach - make sure to eat at Bar Petit Mare - excellent food and friendly service, and probably don't eat at Il Pirata, great views but average food. I would definitely return.

We stayed at La Perla 3 nights and I was very happy with my choice.
It is located right in the middle of the Amalfi coast providing easy access to all nearby points of interests. The room was not the best, as we did not get the sea view, but we were not too much bothered about it, as at least the sun was not making our room boiling hot and the air conditioning did not have to run the whole time. It was big enough, quiet and very clean. Towels and shampoo were provided every day. The breathtaking panorama could anyway be enoyed from the terrace, where we could relax in the evening or starting the day in the best possible way with a nice breakfast. Cakes, bread, cheese, cold meats and fresh fruit from their garden was available as a buffet with hot and cold drinks. The service was also fine. The staff is kind and prepared to offer help for any need. They organized our transfer to the airport, the rent of scooter and of a boat (to be tried!!!). It is nice that they also provide beach towels. If I am going back to the Amalfi Coast, I will certainly go back to this lovely hotel.
