      Great views of the sea. Friendly staff.

      Our suite had a balcony with amazing views of the sea. The staff are very friendly and informative. The lady proprietor emigrated from NZ 40 years ago and so communication is not a problem. Parking (always a problem in Positano) is available 100m away (not free - but very reasonable).

      Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Villa Gabrisa Positano

      Away from the action

      from

      The Villa Gabrisa is located in north Positano i the next cove up. It is a bit high up..the place is very pleasant and clean. the bacony and terraces are on the main road and very noisy with buses and vespas....we had a suite but the bedroom and sitting room should have been switched as to help with the noise at night. you can get a bus back after you have walked down but it takes an hour..the restaurant was good but very expensive and there is no free breakfast here...the staff comes in late after 8am

      Great View

      from

      We loved our room and terrace at this hotel. The terrace had a wonderful view of the beach and the cliffs.

      We preferred the location further up the hill than the other hotels, away from the bustle of the beach, and the view and better from high up. But some people might find the walk and the stairs far from the centre of Positano.

      We also enjoyed the food at the restaurant in the evenings. The food was good, and we got a small discount for being hotel guests. Breakfast, however was just basic.

      Very homey..and yes, GREAT VIEW!!!

      from

      My husband and I enjoyed our stay at the Villa Gabrisa...great place. We stayed in one of the suites and it was HUGE! Especially compared to all of the tiny European hotel rooms we were getting used to. Positano is an expensive place, but this hotel was really affordable, not ostentatious and lovely. The room could certainly stand to be updated, (light pink hot tub installed around 1979, I'm guessing) but it was very comfortable and having our own kitchenette and lots of space to move around was really nice. We had breakfast brought to our room every morning. It was pretty standard and just fine (buns, yogurt, etc.).

      The location was good - though it's quite high up the cliffside. As with most hotels in Positano, you take a looong walk down the many sets of stairs to the beach, and take the very efficient bus back up. No problems... All of the reviews for hotels in Positano mention the views and I would be remiss if I didn't also... We had a large private terrace right off of our room and the view really was breathtaking - especially at night. Every evening we'd sit out on the terrace and drink some wine and just enjoy the lovely scene... And, anytime you can actually see the ocean from the bed, you know you're in a great hotel room!

      This review would not be complete if I didn't comment on the wonderful family that runs the Villa Gabrisa. They were friendly, hard working, helpful, very non-pretentious and kind. They helped to make our stay a very pleasant one.

      Great value and huge, romantic balconies with view for all rooms

      from

      Villa Gabrisa is a little gem. It is a family run operation and they speak good English. There are only 6 rooms available but all the rooms have sea views and expansive, beautiful balconies where you could see the cliff, Positano town and the sea at the same time. The restaurant is excellent (though food is a little on the sweet side). Service is impeccable and very warm. Breakfast could be improved. But great value for money. Highly recommended.

      A Very Special Place

      from

      My partner and I stayed at the Villa Gabrisa for four glorious days in early September 2004. This small hotel tucked away in a corner of Positano is truly a find. The rooms are beautiful and large, the view of the sea from the balconies is impressive and the rates are well worth every euro. The family who owns the hotel is accomodating. Even the hotel restaurant is very good. Overall, this is an excellent value in one of the most beautiful places in the world. . . Positano!!

      If you are looking for a small hotel in Positano, look no further than the Villa Gabrisa.

      Great honeymoon spot

      from

      We stayed in the Sirio room, which offered a fantastic, yet private view of the sea and the town off of the large porch - perfect for sipping a bottle of wine or a quite breakfast. The family that runs the Villa Gabrisa is very nice and helpful. The restaurant is also very good. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone traveling in the area, even over the higher end hotels.

      Comfortable Rooms, Nice view

      from

      Our room (Nereo) was very spacious (especially by European standards).

      The terrace was also big and view was marvelous. The place is family run and they were very helpful with everything. I would highly recommend this place for Positano stay.

      What a View!

      from

      We arrived in Positano without a room. The Villa Gabrisi took us in, showed us the room and we fell in love with the place- large room, full bath and a fridge with a reasonably priced mini-bar. The terrace was spacious with a view of the ocean and the cliffs. The host was a transplanted New Zealander who made our stay in Positano a memorable one. She recommended restaurants and shops that we found to our liking.

      How can you not love Positano, especially at the Villa Gabrisi.

      Great small place to stay in Positanot

      from

      (6 rooms) - rate included breakfast delivered to our room and eaten outside on terrace (and good American style coffee); amazing balcony/terrace and great location high enough up for nice views from room; helpful English-speaking staff; large room and nice bathroom; superior experience, unmatched stay in Italy (and this was our honeymoon, so obviously this was a romantic place)

      The girls remarked that the mattresses were very firm. I slept well but the mattresses were firm - they weren't imagining. The most remarkable thing about breakfast was that we were seated across the road with excellent views of the sea. This meant we had to cross a busy road with our food from the buffet.

      We received good advice from …

      ... the beach with the last of the days sun helped me dry off, it seemed a popular pastime as the town cats and dogs were all spotted lying on roofs and pavements soaking in the rays. At about 5pm we trekked back up the steep staircases and roads to the bus stop, admiring the views on the way, and got onto another packed bus to return to Sorrento while the sun was setting. This bus ride was better even though we had to stand in the aisle, maybe it was due to the swim ...

      Upon arriving at the restaurant we were hit with the most incredible views of the perfectly blue ocean, with the Isle of Capri floating out on the horizon. Our hosts were the owners, Francesco and Stella, as well as the chef, Paolo. Francesco and Stella's six year old daughter, Margherita, took us through the gardens out back, which were technically out and down the cliff. We were treated to not ...

      This past weekend we experienced our much-anticipated excursion to southern Italy. After an exhausting train ride to Naples, an angering taxi ride (where our driver dropped us off at the wrong place and begged for a tip), and scenic ferry ride to Sorrento, we finally arrived at our hostel. After settling in, we took yet another mode of transportation by using the bus to get to the small coastal town of Positano. The 45 minute bus ride included weaving around mountains on ...

      ... Another magnificent villa that Rena had chosen; the contrast could not be greater between mountainous Tuscany and Amalfi coastal views out our bedroom windows.

      A quick unpack followed by groceries and wines from, Alimentari de Colonali, the local convenience store 100 m up our street, then we walked 100m up the street again for a meal. Our first ...
