Travel Blogs from Praiano
For the last leg of our jaunt round Italy, we left Naples and headed to the Amalfi Coast by train and then bus. The bus ride was a little stomach-churning as it navigated the famed curvy Starda 163 that hugs the Amalfi coast line.
After some extensive research, I decided to forgo the bright lights and high prices of Positano or Amalfi and …
... I think it's KM's .... not miles) it was 16 KM's of the most spectacular coastline we have ever seen. As seems to be the recurring theme of this holiday ..... It has to be seen to be believed. Stopped in a little town along the way to visit the Emerald Grotto. We had to walk down a few steps then get in an elevator which went down about 100m's ( quite an engineering feat really as the elevator has been cut into solid rock ! ) and opened ...
... worth it. Probably my favorite part of the trip to Capri actually. There were just incredible views from the top. I suspect they continued being awesome for most of the hike down, but I only saw the ones from the top. I got to see the famous three rocks, and views back towards Naples, and views down of the city Capri and just all sorts of awesomeness. I also bought an ice cream bar at the top - not gelato (it was 4 euro for one scoop!); I penny pinched and paid ...
... pizza that was decent. So..to find the next best "best pizza in the world" in Rome.
This weekend was such a whirlwind of adventure, and it was just practice for this upcoming weekend (2 days away!!) in Munich at Oktoberfest. (The biggest festival in the world!!)
Whew...I think my novel is finished...good night everyone!
PS I'm too tired to go through and proof-read this, so I apologize for any horrible spelling or grammar ...
... you have ever seen.
We descended the stairs down to the grotto and waited for one of the little boats to come over to us to take us in. You aren’t allowed to swim there and the island charges 10 euro each for you to be taken in on a little row boat.
Witek, Dee, Trish and I climbed into the boat that came over to us and he took us over to the floating counter to pay our fees. He then took us into the Blue Grotto, which is an experience in itself!

TravelPod Member ReviewsHotel Le Fioriere Praiano
Hotel Le Fioriere is a clean, well-run family establishment at a very reasonable price. We had a room with a balcony which gave us a view of the hotel pool on the opposite side of the street but beyond that the sea. The hotel is situated on the main road so there is some street noise and there is no pool. Although the furnishing were a little outdated, the place was spotlessly clean and comfortable. Another plus was that the hotel was right opposite the bus stop - no walking up and down hills, dragging luggage. Breakfast was filling and more than adequate - you had a choice of cornetto pastries with ham, eggs etc. Plus, there was bread, cereals and yogurts. We started every morning with a cappucino and sometimes two! The stand-out was the open rooftop bar and restaurant which was a fabulous place to hang out in the evening with drinks and olives. Watching the sun go down and the twinkling lights appear in neighboring Positano as the night deepened - bliss.

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Le Fioriere Praiano
Great Breakfast large and confy rooms
We have just returned from a week at le Fioriere
Great value quality/price
We had a sweet room with a view of capri and Li Galli Island (owned by Nurayew the Russian dancer The Syrens Island).Napped on our balcony overlooking the coast. We had these great lounge chairs and watched the sunset
Brand new bathrooms stylish and confy bathtube shower
as I read in an old review no shower curtains
Now there is a confy and sylish glass in this roomy and confy bathroom
The hotel has internet so we felt as though we have one the lottery.
The breakfast was served in the room at 12.00 (gorgeous)no extra and definetly an international breakfast
Rooms are clean and roomy for Amalfi Coast standard (30sqm)
The family run Le Fioriere and its clean and they are incredibly helpful
They just take care of us let us feeling a part of them
Thanx Luigi and Rosalia to make our holidays so beautyful
Great hotel, very very noisy
We would never recommend this hotel. It's a shame because as we arrived we decided it was the best hotel of our 6 week trip. Large spacious room, private balcony (although book the top floor for the view). The breakfast was by far the best of our trip as well.
The stay there (for 3 nights) was ruined every night with the bar going until 3am! They need to decide if the hotel guests paying 100 Euro a night are more important than the locals in the bar.
It is also on a narrow part of the street so cars, buses and bikes toot their horn as they go around the corner to ensure oncoming traffic know they are there. The quiet of Positano or Amalfi was looking very attractive despite the higher prices.
Very nice stay at Le Fioriere
Stayed here for two nights during our honeymoon in September 2006. Very warm and friendly welcome from the owner and staff. Small bottle of complimentary sparkling wine provided given it was our honeymoon (which was more than we got at most of the other hotels we stayed at). Room with a good view over the sea. Bar reasonably priced and popular with locals. Locals very friendly and helpful. Praiano not too touristy like Sorrento and Amalfi. Getting to the beach is 300 steps down the hill. Very good value for money for the Amalfi coast. Free parking available. Good food at local restaurants very close by, including in the hotel opposite.

Great value gem in beautiful Praiano
We can highly recommend the Hotel Le Fiorere as a great value and friendly place to stay on the Amalfi Coast; and Praiano as a peaceful alternative to the scrum of Positano in High Season.
The proprietors and staff were very friendly and welcoming and seemed genuinely to care about the quality of our holiday. Breakfast on our balcony in the morning was a daily treat (especially the fresh figs - more of those please!) and it provided a beautiful view of the evening sunset. Our room was returned to an immaculate state each day - the fresh flowers illustrate the unobtrusive way we were looked after during our stay.
The Amalfi Coast road does pass the front of the hotel and the traffic noise is persistent throughout the day and early evening. It did not disturb our sleep, however, or detract from the general peace and beauty of Praiano. It is easy to get away into its network of pretty narrow stairways, up into the hills (if your feeling fit!), or down to the beach / harbour, which is low-key and very Italian.
We can't praise either Le Fiorere or Praiano highly enough!
Felt at home
The hotel which is really a bed and breakfast was good overall. We had a beautiful view, make sure you ask for the top floor. It was clean, comfortable and very convenient. (The bus stop was directly in front of the hotel, so traveling was easy). The owners were very hospitable and were very helpful when we needed directions. You can't beat the price. Oh, and the owners speak English.

Can't Wait to Go Back
Skip the tourist traps of Positano and Amalfi, and instead have a lovely stay among the locals at Hotel le Fioriere. This was by far our best European hotel experience, ever. Its simplicity is its charm. The family that owns the hotel practically welcomes you as part of the family, speaks excellent English, and they will eagerly offer their assistance planning excursions or whatever else you might need. The rooms are spacious and clean with tile floors. In the evening, the bar fills up with a perfect mix of locals and travelers, without becoming too noisy. Rates are very reasonable, so go for the water view rooms with a wonderful view of the Mediterranean Sea. The location is unbeatable, between Positano and Amalfi. Both towns are just a thrilling bus ride around the mountain roads. The included breakfast of fresh fruit, yogurt, fresh pastries, etc., is outstanding. Overall, the service, accommodations, and atmosphere made us want to cancel the rest of our plans and instead stay here for our entire holiday.
A Home Away From Home
We arrived late for our reservation at Le Fioriere after missing our connecting flight in Paris. The owners of Le Fioriere, which is a family owned/operated hotel, treated us like family arriving late to a party. They even offered to make us sandwiches as we were starving! Breakfast in our rooms in the morning was suggested if we wanted to sleep late.
Our accomodations were perfect and what a view to the ocean when we opened our shutters in daylight! We enjoyed a lovely complimentary breakfast that morning in the hotel dining area. It was so lovely that we returned several mornings from the villa we were renting in Praiano just to enjoy the breakfast and friendly staff!
We stopped in many times during our 2 weeks in Praiano to say hi and get travel tips...and even some cooking tips!
This has to be one of the friendliest hotels we have ever stayed at. A return to Praiano and Le Fioriere is at the top of our travel list!
Breakfast at any time from 8 am till 13
This family well run Hotel is very special, Mr Mike (The boss he is from Brooklyn!!!)Rosanna from Praiano(His Wife)

Family feeling - sapore famigliare
When you visit the wonderful costiera amalfitana, you have mainly 4 possibilities to stay: 1- make headquarter in Sorrento and from there take boat-train daily to your locations: 2-stay in the costiera's top locationm Positano, for those who love very lively life -sometimes this turns to too much confusion; 3- nest yourself up in the wonderful Ravello, high above the sea; 4-stay in Praiano, in the middle of the costiera but with less people and a slower pace.
With my family I stayed at Le Fioriere and found it a great location, sea view, just above the main road, with an excellent quality-price ratio.
It's a family run hotel with a strong family feeling which welcomes and pampers you. Very good breakfast, excellent restaurant especially for sea food (cozze e vongole, mussels and clams) just next to the hotel (La Brace). It's a simple and very clean location for about 95 Euro per night, about 40-50 euro less than Positano's 3 stars hotels.
Le Fioriere was definately our favorite!!!
My daughter and I just returned May 29, 2005 from three weeks in Italy. We started in Venice and then rented a car and worked our way down to the Amalfi Coast. True, arriving on the Coast on a Saturday wasn't the best idea but I knew what to expect and I wasn't disapointed!! After a wild and crazy drive we finally arrived at Le Fioriere and immediately felt very welcome. One VERY important thing to consider is that they have a parking lot which is a major issue in that area. It is not a large hotel and we felt like they were waiting for our arrival. They helped us get our things in, parked the car for me, and explained what restaurants were in the area. We had a wonderful large room with an incredible view from our balcony of Capri in the distance. We spent four nights there and hated to leave. What makes it so special are the owners!!! They all speak English and every day they would ask us what we had planned and give suggestions or make reservations for us if needed. (If you want to go to Capri you can go from Positano instead of going all the way to Sorrento or Naples.) The entire hotel was spotless, bright, and colorful. The breakfast was excellent with pastries, fresh sliced fruit, cereals, coffee, etc.. One morning we had a very late start (noon) and they still insisted on making something for us to eat. They could not have been more helpful and after very long days of siteseeing we felt like we coming home when we got to the Le Fioriere. It may not be a 5 star hotel, and we stayed at some, but this was by far our favorite hotel.
