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!
Great Family Hotel
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.
One of the best family hotels we have stayed at.
Warm and sunny Margherita

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.

... the bus by about a minute! It was just heading down the road as we popped up the steps! We wandered down the road enjoying the views to the next village and caught the next bus from there. Time then for a swim at the main beach. There is no sand at the beaches but only pebbles which makes it ******* the feet to get into the water. Its still early season ...
... It was the first time we had nothing planned for the day, so I took advantage of alone time and recovering time. This was much needed, considering we are now halfway through our trip. That afternoon I walked down to the beach area, which really is black sand and rock, to meet Dani who had been laying out in the beautiful scenery. It was great to lay back and take in the views of the local fisherman who had been working hard all day, to the mount Vesuvius against the aqua ...
... in saying that they had made a mistake living here. It was almost perfect.
Vesuvius erupted on August 24 79AD, sending a cloud of ash and rubble over the city. Many buildings collapsed under the weight of the volcanic rock. People would have had no idea what hit them. They would probably have believed that Vulcan, the god of fire, was punishing them for something. Who knows. The rain of debris fell down all day, killing many, trapping ...
... field in sight. Certainly no Gloria Jeans or Macarthur Square. I'm glad the girls saw it was a dose of reality in a privileged life. The train sped on and deep into the darkness of a tunnel in the hillside. Emerging it was as though was had passed through time. The buildings were new, the streets clean and the coast in plain sight. Welcome to Sorrento, bene, molto bene! We took the short walk to Piazza Tasso and found the back alley entrance to ...
