Hotel Le Fioriere
Travel Blogs from Praiano
Praiano has got to be one of the most beautiful places in the world. The scenery is spectacular - all sparkling blue seas, drop off cliff and picturesque little houses scattered around. We spent most of the time just wandering around gazing out in awe. The beach is a secluded little place (with rocks not sand!) about 20mins walk down the cliff face …
Although I am not entirely sure what the phrase "Give way to overtaking traffic" means, I know all too well its importance. The Amalfi coast is beautiful and well worthy of its great reputation. I have loved my time here. The way the towns are built right into the cliffs of the coastline are incredible. I am shocked that they could even be built …
Take Two! On my last night in Nice, France, I ventured out to dinner by myself. I went to Restaurant La Mirador on the Place Magenta just around the corner from my hostel. I had a salad with almost a whole avacado on it! I really needed a salad. Meal times are the hardest when traveling by yourself, but there were plenty of oppurtunities for people …
This is long because I actually wrote it daily while I was in Praiano...one of the luxuries of being alone. Day 1: I will admit that I had some fears that coming back to Praiano would ruin it for me. It was so perfect last time that I wondered if it was just a dream, and that the second time around would be interjected with a bigger dose of reality …
I do not have anything I want to say about Naples. We walked over to the oldest part of Naples, as this is one of the main tourist places and not to be missed, apparently, and it was disgusting, loud, and full of mafia looking people and black as night Africans, that get up in your business. Get me out of ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Le Fioriere Praiano
We have just returned from a week at le Fioriere
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.
Booked through laterooms.com.
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.
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.

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.
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.
Breakfast at any time from 8 am till 13

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.
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.
