We were in Rome and traveled to Positano from there. We had no idea of the hotel or any if the area. I booked this room strictly from Expedia reviews.
We could not have been more pleased!! The service is the best to any we have encountered. The staff went out of their way to accommodate us and the facilities are top rate. The complimentary breakfast was an added bonus, along with a 5star restaurant, with most produce grown in their gardens. It was incredible, convenient, and right on the road so no climbing to get there.
You can't go wrong with this hotel!!!!!
We spent four wonderful nights in Positano at Art Hotel Pasitea and we couldn't have asked for more. A brilliant location, far enough away from the main shopping and restaurant precinct to have some peace and quiet, but close enough to walk to the action. The hotel was nicely apportioned, staff friendly and helpful and put up with our terrible attempts at speaking Italian.
The rooms and especially shower we a little small to navigate in, but if you've been to Positano, you'll understand that space is at a premium, so these things were quite forgivable.
All in all a great stay.
Stayed just for two nights but will stay longer next time. Had room on 3rd floor in attic but was a lovely room with balcony. Staff we're extremely helpful and friendly. They have their own restaurant and food was lovely. Amazing eating breakfast, lunch or dinner outside hotel with views over Positano. Bit of a walk from beach but the walk down is worth it for taking photos and you can catch local bus back up if don't want to walk, stop right outside hotel.
We stayed at the adjacent villa for three nights in early October. It really is gem of a place, a small heaven of yours secluded right at the heart of Positano's busy walkway to the beach.
The villa has two separate bedrooms with their own bathrooms, a large living room, kitchen, a third bathroom with a washing machine, and a walk-in closet. It was plenty of space for two couples and my twelve-year old daughter. The main bedroom on the garden side has a jakuzzi as well.
Once you open the gate, the size of the well-manicured garden makes you go wow. The view is amazing. One one side, you have the dome of the church and the bell tower. On the other sides, you have the breath-taking views of Positano hills. You cannot imagine how many people tried to sneak into the garden for a photo opportunity every time we opened the gate to the street.
Hotel staff was friendly and made some good recommendations about places to eat, visit etc.
Two small issues to note. First there were a lot of ants, coming from the garden. Second, bathrooms had a heavy smell so we had to leave the windows open even during the day.
Overall I would certainly recommend this place especially if you are travelling with the family.

Each apartment comes with a beautiful view and the communal area has some of the best. The place itself is super easy to find (a huge plus in Positano) with much of what you'll need a short walk away. The biggest plus about this place is the staff, especially Dario - he was incredibly helpful during our stay! Thanks heaps!! If one thing could be improved - stronger wifi so it can reach the rooms. Currently only available in the communal areas but with that great view you don't mind.

Very nice rooms with a great balcony. The food was great and the service was usually with a smile. Extensive wine list. The location was great, very close to the city centre and beach, however the higher up the hill you stay, the better the view.
