We had a very nice stay in the hotel from the moment we arrived to the moment we left, the lovely receptionist was also our bell woman and helped us with all our needs. Nice personality and gave us good info about the local area. When walking into our room (30) the windows open out to a balcony with the most amazing view, romantic and awe inspiring. Not many places in the world can compete with that view of the sea and the town. All the mod-cons such as excellent wifi and air con (although I have to say the aircon wasn't working in the room at the time), Sky TV (although very limited with the channels). Good size bath and rain shower, Bidet.
November is the beginning of the quiet season, so the town and the hotel is very quiet, very limited service when it came to food and drink, the bar was open and served by the receptionist. The restaurant was closed for the winter months so you will need to eat out. The is a nice breakfast buffet which was included in the price.
This Hotel is at the top of the hill and you can catch a local bus which will take you down to the town ( you have to walk a little way more from the bus stop to get to the beach). You can also walk down an abundance of stairs but walking back up is not for the faint hearted, the same bus will take you back up. You can get a discounted ticket for the bus from the local shops or you can just buy a ticket on the bus, its a couple of euro's, so it won't break the bank either way.
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.
This property is a gem. Great location and view. Only a 15 minuted walk to center of Positano. The room was very private. We had our own terrace overlooking the ocean. Breakfeast was ok but did not include cold cuts like most Italian hotels. The owner Felix is very much in control and very helpful and quite a character. He also offers to cook dinner for his guests which for us was on Sunday evening. It was a good experience in that you dine with the other guests but I would not do it again, it is way overpriced for what you get, 85 euros for 2 people, much better selection, prices and ambiance in the many restaurants in Positano.
