TravelPod Member ReviewsHotel La Bougainville Positano
The hotel is comfortable and had a great balcony overlooking the town and the ocean. The hotel is just outside the pedestrian only section of Positano making it very convenient to walk down into the town but the drawback to the location is the exhaust from all the vehicles travelling up to the upper reaches of town and beyond. If you arrive, as we did, via ferry, the hike to the hotel with bags is quite steep and tiring.
The room was spacious and had good WiFi. The breakfast was OK not overwhelming but served in a nice breakfast room.
Staff were very friendly and helpful when needed.

All washed down with unlimited wine and lemoncello
To say we were stuffed was an understatement !!
we got delivered back to our hotel and staggered onto the bed and laid ...
... so literally no other religions exists. In the 60's it turned into a Bohemian town where a lot of writers and artists came in. The most famous of those is John Steinbeck who wrote Of Mice and Men. There isn't a bad view in the town, so it's not surprising many writers came here to get inspired. It rained the whole tour, but it gave us something fun to do with the rainy day instead of sit inside. We also met Vincenzo, her husband, who is a Sommelier ...
... the the tourism office was closed (we weren't quite sure why), the staff of a nearby patisserie/café, helped us with directions to the very eccentric looking ceramic guild outlet store we passed as we drove into town. (We felt obliged to buy some coffee and pastries at the café . . . oh the sacrifices we make when traveling!) We did not find anything to buy at the outlet store, but with our folk art interests indulged we returned to the car and ...
