We went for a short break over the weekend and this hotel did not disappoint. Some key pluses for your stay, the view, parking (which is hard to come by), the room size, the location to everything, the breakfast and the service. There is a lift available as the hotel is over a few floors. The view from everywhere is...

Hotel Gabbiano is a smaller hotel in Positano. Beautiful views and an excellent value. Specifically request a room with a great view and balcony. The hotel provides a complimentary breakfast. This is a great family-run hotel and the service is fantastic. The staff was very helpful in assisting us with sightseeing options. The hotel is also conveniently located right next...

I read many reviews before booking this place and I must say I wasn't disappointed. I booked online and got an excellent price, compared to my travel agent. I had read reviews about the owners and I can see how some people get the wrong idea. I would like to say however that if you give them the time of...

I stayed in two different rooms, the first one, with no more than a tiny window didn't make justice to the hotel, when transferred to my room (with balcony and view) the value increases tremendously. It is located close to a shuttle stop however it is not infront and some stairs or steep walking has to be done (for people...

We were very pleased with our stay at Il Gabbiano. The hotel is about 1/2 way up the very steep hills of Positano, so the views are spectacular yet you can walk to the beach in about 10 minutes or take a bus for Euro 1.70. the rooms are clean, the staff is very helpful and the price is reasonable...

Hotel was excellent clean and friendly. Great location. Right on the bus stop. Would recommend and also stay again in a heartbeat ! Few minutes down to the beach and a bus that takes you back up to your door! View is like nothing I have experienced before

The best view of the town, trust me :) We enjoyed the terrace, so no need for the big rooms. We had friendly stuff and smiley approach, so I am not sure about negative reviews. Breakfast was normal, we ate most of the time in the neighborhood. Yes, it is far from the beach but that is not the point...

some terrible reviews for this hotel on TA which I read after booking, I almost cancelled but in the end the price was right as most hotels in positano are very expensive. Two nights in a good sized double with an incredible sea view and terrace was €340. The room was clean and functional with a decent bathroom and effective...
