GETTING THERE Catch the Sita bus from Sorrento Train station that has AMALFI on it. Cost $1.80 per ticket (Oct 2016). Do NOT get off when they say the first 'Positano' stop. We made this mistake and had to then catch the internal Positano bus (which does loops down around Positano) and had to pay for another ticket. Instead stay... More

We stayed here for 2 nights and it was great. The staff make you feel so welcome which is such a lovely touch. The breakfast was good, and the room was nice too. The location of this hotel is absolutely perfect for visiting as you're just off the main walkway to the seafront. There's a parking place just opposite as... More

We spent 5 nights here. It is a good walking distance to the beach. Takes about 5-10 mins. The hotel itself is definitely outdated but it worked. We paid a decent price compared to other hotels. The staff was very pleasant and helpful. Walking distance to lots of shops and restaurants. There is a bus stop right outside at the... More

It's right on one of the main roads down as close to the beach as you can get by car. Also located very close to the walking path that takes you the rest of the way to the beach. The hotel staff was also very nice and helpful.

The hotel was very nice and reasonably priced. Great location, close to everything. The city view was nice, but don't expect to see the beach well from here. Service was excellent, gave us restaurant recommendations and allowed us a late check out. Breakfast was included but did not have a lot of variety.

We only stayed for one night as part of a trip along the Amalfi coast. We arrived early and asked to leave our luggage but we were able to check in early to make things easier.

5 min. Walk to town centre all up and down hill though it is Positano to be expected. Just a good place to put your gear and have a sleep. No sights from my room then again not every room can have a view. Considering price of hotels there, (140 euro) it was a fair price. Clean, rooms bit outdated,... More
