Good location, Great Views
It took us a few days to get the room that we booked, but when we did, our stay was spectacular. Due to some plumbing issues with our booked room, we stayed in an inner room with no windows (one sky light) for 2 of our 5 days - this was less than ideal. Once in the booked room (terrace with sea view), our appreciation for the hotel greatly increased. Located on the primary road in Positano, the hotel is about a 5 minute walk to the "center" of Positano and about 10 minutes to the beach. It is up the hill and I recommend using the Porters at the pier for transferring your luggage if arriving by ferry (look for small golf karts type vehicles when arriving or ask the ferry personal for assistance - the price we paid was €10 per bag). The breakfast buffet was sufficient with an assortment of pastries, salads, yogurt, fruit, and hard boiled eggs. While on the main road, we didn't find it to loud in the room - ours was set back slightly which may have helped with the noise (other rooms have terrace right off the road). The staff was helpful and their English speaking skills were sufficient for basic information. The hotel was always tidy and quaint (not modern, but kept well). For the budget, the hotel provided a wonderful experience.
