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.

... 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 ...
... looking produce, but also delightful smells as Franco took us through the rows crushing various herbs and leaves in his hands for us to smell, from wild fennel to lemon tree leaves to a perfectly ripe fig plucked right from the tree.

After enjoying a coffee we were brought into the kitchen ...
... a gelati to help us digest it! Yummo! Then we took a walk along the beachfront of Amalfi and enjoyed watching the people, before catching the 3pm ferry back to Positano.
Arriving in Positano from the sea gave us quite a different perspective of this beautiful town. We walked back up the hill to the B&B to rest a while before dinner. We are now sitting on the terrace enjoying a cup of tea and some ...
Today we had two other ladies, Helen and Jane from the hotel join us for the boat trip to Amalfi and Positano, the boat was full, this time with many young people.
We left Marina del Cantona on time and we passed the Li Galli islands, the three rocky islands called Gallo Lungo, Castelluccio and Rotonda, located a few miles from the beach of Positano, which mirror themselves in the limpid ...
We bid farewell to our fine hosts at Hotel Alessandra in Florence this morning. The service at this hotel really stood out. Everyone was so helpful and hardworking; we especially liked Monte who was on the evening shift. He's what you'd think of as a stereotypical Italian, lively and energetic, with a strong accent, and very welcoming. He would call us "darling" all the time and wish us an enthusiastic "buonasera!" whenever we saw him. We took two very different trains today on ...
