Travel Blogs from Praiano
Hi everyone (Morning Tammi)
We drove from Montefalco to Praiano and most of the trip was easy. Hate to dis a place but driving through Napoli (Naples) convinced us never to visit for any length of time. The place is a slum (or the parts we saw) - dirty and so unkempt. We have never been able to say that about any other place in Italy. …
left hotel 7:30 sharp - returned 5:45...car, big bus, little bus, car.....LOTS and i mean LOOTTTSS of walking up to Vesuvius and around Pompeii .....oy.
Loads of intersting history.....
Bus ride back is our last deathdefying trip in the Amalfi Coast (other than us leaving town)....
Truly amazing place but challenging to get around …
This is our second night here....arrived in Rome 8:30am,...left airport at 10:30....drove 4 hours (a bit longer than anticipated) and arrived at our wonderful hotel in Praiaino. Spacious room and bathroom, everything top notch. Hosts couldnt have been nicer. We wandered down to town and ended up having dinner at the highly rated restaurant at the …
So today was quite an enjoyable day for the most part. First we sat our lazy asses by the pool and talked with the Brits. Boy they are a cheeky bunch them Brits; always got some sarcasm to blow off about something inconsequential. They went on and on about the bloody system in England and how it's all going to hell. The worst of them was the Irish …
We landed in Naples and I am now on the bus to Sorrento. From there we have to catch another bus to Puriano where our hotel is. Frank and his friendly self struck up a conversation with a woman who spoke perfect English whom I was convinced was either Italian or from Glamorville USA by the way that she carried herself. Frank insisted she was …

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Margherita Praiano
I'm just back from a wonderful 4 nights in Margherita Hotel on advice of trip advisor. We were thrilled and found the hotel to be spotlessly clean, very friendly and convenient. We would definitely go back.
We just spent 2 nights over Easter at this wonderful, small hotel on the Amalfi Coast. We are a family of 5 with 2 adult children and 1 teenager. Apart from the stunning location and views to die for, the hotel was extremely comfortable for a 3star rating. Even though we did not get rooms with sea views (the hotel was fully booked) each bedroom had its own little terrace area with orange and lemon trees overlooking. This is a very warm family-run hotel and guests are treated like family members... Mama fussed over us like a mother hen to ensure that we all got enough to eat!! The family could not do enough for us, from lending us a Michelin guide for our trip to Pompeii to giving us advice on bus timetables and other local information. Internet access did not work in the bedroom and access to the hotel is up a very narrow, one-way street however the hotel parks cars in a garage for guests.... We will definitely return!
We were pleasantly surprised when we arrived [in September 2005] at this family run hotel, positioned on a hill wirh magnificent sea views. It is run by the charming Mother, [who is the chef] with her lovely Daughter and handsome Son in law, who cannot do enough for their guests and make them feel so welcome. We stayed half board, meal times are very flexible, dinner is discussed and chosen at breakfast - very tasty, Italian home cooking. The hotel rate is most reasonable and was terrific value. Guests came from all over the world, everyone became friendly and it was like a houseparty. Very convenient for getting to Positano, with a bus stopping at the door. The accomodation is simple but clean with the best rooms at the front.
Warm and sunny Margherita
a fantastic wellrun family hotel
ideally placed for trips along the Amalfi coast.
Warm welcome, excellent accomodation,good reasonably priced food, wonderful views from the room balcony.
Praiano is a pretty village well worth exploring.
Margherita Hotel is a must
This family well run Hotel is very special as are the warm, caring, welcoming Suella, Margherita and Andrea. We loved our room, the food and the relaxed quiet atmosphere. Can't wait to go back-the sooner the better. The view from our balcony was sensational.
Wonderful family run hotel
I have travelled a great deal throughout Europe but never chosen to write a review about a hotel until now. We have just come back from our stay at the Hotel Margherita in Priano on the Amalfi coast.
The hotel is not very accessable but once there it was well worth the journey. All hotel rooms had wonderful views over the bay. These were well maintained and large although the bathroom was a little on the small side (we were told that these will be modernised during the coming winter). The food is prepared daily by the mother of the family and this was excellent. Best of all were the family, they were so helpful and couldn't do enough to make our stay as welcome as possible. I would have no problems refering this hotel to anyone and it will not be long before I return.
