Had a lovely stay at this hotel. Fantastic service with very friendly staff and in a very beautiful location. Very helpful in providing information (transport and other local facilities etc.). Food is very tasty and really 5* dining in a 3* hotel!

We stayed at Hotel Margherita in September 2009 for four nights. We booked the last room available during our time frame, so we got to spend three nights in an oceanview room and one in a garden view. We really enjoyed Praiano. I found Positano and Amalfi to be much too crowded for my tastes and was glad we were away from the worst of the hectic in-season crowd.

Though some have mentioned Hotel Margherita's situation up the hill from town to be a negative, that was what we liked about it. The main road through Praiano can get very crowded with tour buses and scooters, and we enjoyed having some peace from that. We used the small public bus that stops right in front of the hotel to get around locally or to Positano, and we used the main bus stop in town to reach Amalfi and Ravello.

The staff is largely made up of family, and we found this to be a plus. The staff is very invested and proud of this property and they go out of their way to assist guests. With just a phone call they will pick you up from the bus stop and beach or make reservations for restaurants or excursions, and their English is great.

Some pluses and minuses, just so you know:
Pros - Spacious rooms, nice sundecks, beautiful views, decent breakfasts, cool key card system to keep power usage down, good A/C, near a very nice beach (5 min drive), less scooter traffic than in town (though still some).

Cons - Our neighbors had a small child with them and when the child cried (to be expected of a toddler) it was as if the child was in our room, could use more variety in daily breakfast, we preferred the garden view room to the oceanview b/c it was quieter overall and had a very large terrace area. The road noise can be distracting if you face the ocean, pool is VERY cold.

Great stay overall and I would recommend this hotel and location to anyone traveling to the Amalfi Coast.

After a week long tour visiting Italy from Venice to Rome, we travelled on our own to the Hotel Margherita. And I have to say that this was the best little hotel that we experienced! From it's spectacular views to it's wonderful service, we could not have been more impressed!! The room was wonderful and extremely well cared for. My family loved that the room was family friendly and large enough to accomodate all four of us, which we did not find in any other Italian hotels we visited during our trip. The staff was extremely helpful and quite pleasant. They helped us to catch the local orange bus to the nearest town of Positano and provided us with excellent information. We would definitely reccommend this hotel to anyone who is looking!! We loved it and would most definitely return again! Thanks for the pleasant stay.

The staff at the hotel are very helpful and friendly. Our room was lovely - and the food was fantastic (they were particularly helpful in catering for a gluten free diet). We had a brilliant time there - and it was a superb starting point for the amazing walking the area has to offer (you can get a walking map from the hotel reception - don't miss the Path of the Gods from Bomerano to Positano).

This hotel has several excellent points: excellent view, excellent service, excellent pool and excellent restaurant. The location is also very good, if you do not want to go to beach. Those are not close by foot. The management take you there by car if you want, so even that is not an issue. If you want to go to village, that also takes some foot work.

I would fully recommend for couples and families with kids around 10 years. We enjoyed a lot last summer!
