Amazing traditional hotel with gorgeous views

Posted 15-Jul-2014
Pros: Very comfortable and felt very traditional which we were looking for.
Cons: The only thing I would change is the mattresses. Thery were quite firm and not as comfortable as I would have liked.
Location: The location was fantastic. Amazing views of the town and the sea. Many great restaurants and shops near by.
I have always dreamt of visiting Positano. July 2014 I finally made it there. I booked the trip on Expedia and just took a chance on the hotel. I promise you we were totally impressed with the staff, the quality of the rooms, food and pool/terrace area. It was everything we had hoped for.

Absolutely beautiful

Posted 06-Jul-2014
It was last part of out honeymoon trip to Italy. Since we walked in to hotel, the front desk greeted us with such a pleasant smile, showed us everything and took us up to our room. Location is really nice and has a gorgeous view. We stayed for 6 nights and our experience was nothing but amazing. Delicious breakfast every morning, fresh mojito and great pasta with eggplant. Pool area is beautiful but the hours are very weird, you cannot swim after 6 PM!? Really? And no gym which not a huge deal but its always good to have an opportunity to burn some calories before big meal!! Overall great hotel, great and friendly stuff and amazing view.

Beautiful Hotel

Posted 01-Jul-2014
Pros: Panoramic Views. Calm and welcoming ambience. All staff were very friendly and helpful.
Cons: We were sad to find the gym was no longer available. Please bring it back. Otherwise cannot fault.
Location: Positano offers a wide variety of boat trips and plays host to some fabulous restaurants Great destination to visit Capri, Amalfi, Sorrento & Ravello
This is one of the loveliest hotels my husband and I have stayed in. Very clean with an old fashioned but elegant charm. Perfect hotel for relaxation but also very convenient location to sight see from. Attentive, happy and helpful staff. The view from our room was amazing. We would highly recommend, we hope to go back soon.

Unforgettable views!

Posted 19-Jun-2014
Pros: Small, charming, quaint
Cons: One of our rooms was a bit noisy, but it was close to an exit by the street.
The hotel is charming and offers spectacular views of the Positano coast. The hotel staff are especially helpful and attentive without being intrusive. It is located about half-way up Positano so you have relatively easy access to the beach - 8-10 minute walk using the stairs or a 20 minute leisurely stroll using the main walkway, BUT it is up high enough to enjoy the beautiful views.

Boutique Hotel in Positano

Posted 09-Jun-2014
Pros: Location and charm of the place.
Cons: Tiny elevator !
Location: Terrific restaurants nearby and great shopping right outside the hotel door or just 5 minute walk to tons of stores near the Marina.
Very charming hotel in a great location. Near restaurants and stores. Can walk out the door and stroll around in either direction for beautiful views of Positano. Helpful staff; great breakfast buffet; terrific terraces overlooking beautiful Positano. Nice pool and deck area, too! We would definitely stay here again. Local Positano bus that tours throughout the village stops just a few steps away, as well. Rooms were comfortable and not tiny (not huge, either) but fine. Bathroom size was better than most, also. Tiny elevator or take lots of stairs to get to your room. This was a house originally and they turned it into a boutique hotel. Really enjoyed our 5 nights here.

Excellent friendly hotel with spectacular views

Posted 09-Jun-2014
Pros: Great position, very friendly and helpful staff, wonderful terrace with pool, clean and spacious room.
Location: The Amalfi coast is dramatic, and the views are spectacular. Visit Amalfi, Ravello, Capri, Pompeii and Herculaneum.
Wonderful hotel with friendly, helpful staff, all of whom spoke good English. Breakfast on the terrace overlooking Positano and the sea was a perfect start to the day! Our room had a sea view with balcony. We spent 4 days in Positano, one of them just wandering around the town and its many boutique shops. We were not the only tourists; it became quite conjested on occasions! Driving in Positano is an experience, the lanes being so narrow with tourists wandering everywhere. Nevertheless, there were lots of little cafes with tables outside from which to watch the world go by! There are local buses which serve the town and surrounds, but we had hired a car so that we could go further afield - to Herculaneum and Pompeii, both of which are worth visiting. The hotel charges Euro25 per night to park your car.

Nice Hotel

Posted 03-Jun-2014
Pros: Had an excellent view of the Mediterranean, nice pool and outdoor bar area and an excellent restaurant. The included breakfast was excellent also.
Cons: Hotel was totally satisfactory.
Location: Good location about half way up the mountain. You can walk to the beach in about 15 minutes. A few good restaurants nearby.
I do not hesitate to recommend the Poseidon Hotel as a place to stay in Positano. It is well located about half way up the mountain and our room had a superb view of the Mediterranean Sea. The staff are friendly and knowledgeable and the restaurant was excellent. In addition there are a few good restaurants within easy walking distance. If I returned to Positano, I would stay at the Poseidon again.

Superb views of Positano

Posted 26-May-2014
Pros: views, friendly staff, a good terrace area and a very good breakfast comfortable rooms and balcony furnished with table and chairs
Cons: towel heaters turned off too early in season May can be cold otherwise all was well
Location: we just stayed in Positano as we have been to area before so it was a relaxing break
Very good position regarding views of Positano but not for elderly or unfit as quite a trek from seafront back to hotel. Hotel boasts a magnificient terrace where weather permitting breakfast is taken overlooking the sea albeit very high up but stupendos views, very nice hotel furnished in traditional style. Although could have done with heating in bathroom as heaters had been turned off. Very nice break weather for 2 days was a bit dodgy but we still enjoyed walking around recommend restaurant on sea fron fish is supurb

The BEST place in Positano.

Posted 23-May-2014
Pros: The furniture is beautiful and the rooms are grand - even the standard ones. The staff is equally great!
Cons: I could have had an extra week on my stay ;o)
Location: Exactly where you need to be to enjoy all of Positano.
The view from the terrace is so beautiful. The staff is wonderful and caring. If you are planning a trip to Postiano this is the place to stay. Hands down one of the best places I have ever visited. Our room was "standard" but had an amazing view from our terrace - I was so happy! Exactly what I was hoping for and more. I love hotel Poseidon.
