Great hotel, awesome view and staff

Posted 29-Jun-2015
Pros: View, rate, staff and morning coffee overlooking the Mediterranean.
Cons: Better blow dryer for my wife.
Location: Relatively high up. The trade off of that is better view, longer walk down to city center.
Nice hotel to stay at for a few days. Family owned and operated, and they couldn't be more accommodating. The view is as good as any in Positano. Great (and some of the best) restaurants within walking distance (and the hotel's food is good and their road-side-with-view tables are an awesome place to start the day). If you do want to go down to the city center, it is an easy walk and you can either taxi it back up or take bus. Not a big deal at all for a couple or a family. It's not the Four Seasons by any stretch, but its a (more than) decent place to stay and watch the world go by.

Wonderful...

Posted 20-Jun-2015
Beautiful location and wonderful hotel. All of the staff were so helpful, explained where everything was located in Positano and organised trips for us. There are so many excellent restaurants in the vicinity, including Villa Gabrisa itself. There are a lot of steps in Positano, prepare yourself for that because it would be a challenge if your fitness levels were poor! It certainly helps to work off all of the wonderful food and drink you will consume. We stayed in a new room (no.12) located next door but one to the hotel, it was a large room with a beautiful view from the terrace. There is a little shop two doors up where you can buy snacks and local wine at reasonable prices too. Would definitely recommend and would without doubt go back.

B&E's Italian Getaway

Posted 11-Jun-2015
Pros: STAFF personnel--especially Carmela, Layla, & Isabella--were absolutely fantastic. Great location; great balcony views; even better overall VALUE!
Cons: Our stay could not have been better...and the people at Villa Gabrisa made all the difference. Dad, Mom, son, daughter, and son-in-law all work there
Location: Everything in nearby Amalfi, Ravella, Capri, & Sorrento are readily available. In our 60's but easy to walk anywhere in Positano from hotel.
Rented car throughout trip to Tuscany & Amalfi Coast. Hotel Villa Gabrisa, easy to find in Positano, with off-site/secured parking. Excellent, family-owned boutique hotel with very good breakfast buffet & bar. Excellent restaurant that must be very good because it was full every night; mostly with locals. We spent 3 nights at VIlla Gabrisa & knew most of the people there before we left. Very attentive, English-speaking staff that were helpful in everything we needed to do...from recommendations on Capri daytrips to helpful suggestions about shipping (even supplied scissors & tape)--grazie, Carmela-- to international phone calls when our room phone wasn't working properly--grazie mille, Layla. We never drove the rental car while we were there, but it was easy to get stuff out of it when needed. And the Positano metro bus stops right next to the Villa Gabrisa. If we ever go back to Positano, we'll be staying there again.

Room with a view

Posted 18-May-2015
Pros: The view from the balcony, clean rooms.
Villa Gabrisa was a beautiful experience for my boyfriend and I. The hotel is about a 10-15 minute walk (or 3-5 minute bus ride) down a winding staircase/road to the main village/square. The bus stop is right outside of the hotel, but we never took it because we enjoyed the walk - the views were absolutely breathtaking and the road was lined with quaint shops and excellent restaurants. The hotel is located around the bend from the main area of Positano. The views were breathtaking, and most likely the best in the part of town taht we were staying in. many of hte other hotels nearby did not seem to have the same vantage point/balcony combo. Since we were traveling from afar to enjoy the Amalfi Coast, it was very important to us to have a room with a view. All the rooms in Villa Gabrisa come with a view. The hotel staff was very helpful and the included breakfast was sufficient. We did not eat at Da Gabrisa, but heard the food was very good. Since we were staying at Villa Gabrisa, we wanted to make sure to explore other parts of town - Da Vincenzo was right down the way and the food was excellent. Overall, the hotel was lovely and mid-range affordable. Would definitely recommend for travelers looking to splurge for a view but with a bit of a budget.

Everything was fantastic!

Posted 08-May-2015
First to last impression nothing to fault! Fantastic view. Room is cosy, clean and a great little balcony to rest at. Breakfast was fantastic. Hotel staff were all very friendly and helpful. Each day they went out of their way to help us with ideas for itineraries and transport options back to Napoli. They were extremely helpful, and clearly not trying to 'sell a tour' to get a commission. If taking the Sita bus in to Positano, make sure you notify the bus driver you want to get off at the first bus stop, as it was a bit of a (very scenic) walk from the second stop. Get the Panna Cotta - it was the icing on the cake of a fantastic place to stay!

perfect for positano

Posted 05-May-2015
The villa gabrisa is well located with amazing views and a decent walk to the centre of charming positano as long as you are reasonably fit ! If you are not the local bus is 10 m away !! The food here is really good and some dishes are sophisticated too so it's worth eating in at least one night Staff are very relaxed and happy to help - we look forward to returning again !! Worth taking a boat trip to see amalfi Coast rather than a car !

A great experience!

Posted 07-Apr-2015 on Hotels
Very enjoyable, lady who checked us in and out was very courteous and helpful. The staff was helpful and provided us all relevant details of shopping and restaurants. Only damper was while we were sitting outside enjoying the view, the bar attendant came out to inform that seating there was reserved only for bar guests! The breakfast was also very good.
