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. …
... matters worse we had both neglected to put on sun screen until we'd spent several hours on the open water. We were both badly sunburnt which we hadn't really noticed until we made it back to the hotel and calmed down. After a cool shower and some Aloe we headed into town for a quiet dinner. We happened to end up at a table that was inches away from another couple who sat down at the same time as us. By the time we got our drinks it felt like we were dining with them so ...
... some time after it happens, and my arms and chest (everywhere facing the sun while lying on my back) are all rather pink. Leanne comes out for breakfast, and I see she too has crisped up a little, especially on her back. Whoops! Should have listened to the pro and put some cream on!
Our plan today is to check out the local market in the morning (we love markets!) and go on a tour around lunch time – we have found this thing called ...
... What a difference once you get into the hotel! The first impression was definitely deceiving. Our room was quite beautiful and we were glad that we didn't hightail it out of there. Best of all, it was a great location being only minutes from the museum and from the old town.
We decided to make the most of our night here so we went straight to the museum as it was on the list of must-do things in Naples. I can't say that this really captured our ...
... his whole life and town destroyed around him. This site really made me ponder life and just how little time we really have on this amazing earth- and how quickly all we know can change. Seeing the actual remaining beautiful fresco's and tiling along the beautiful main streets and villas called Via Dell'Abbondanza amazed me and l could have easily spent more hours wandering around this amazing site if it wasn't for the blistering heat! The highlight of the day though ...

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.
