Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Posa Posa Positano
A small jewel!
I spent the third week in May on the Amalfi Coast of which two days were spent in Positano. The hotel was recommended to me by the manager of my bed and breakfast in Sorrento, so I felt comfortable in his word. Well, what I found was close to heaven. Short and sweet, the hotel was perfect! Location, cleanlinesss and hospitality were all the way it should be. The room was spacious and nicely decorated and the view was absolutely postcard perfect from our terrace. While not cheap, if you're looking for a hotel that accentuates the pleasure of visiting Positano, make this the one. While it is not a 5 star, it absolutely is at the top end of 3 stars, and I don't hesitate in recommending it.
Posa Posa was wonderful!
From the time we first e-mailed the Posa Posa Hotel to ask for information and availability, we were charmed! Angelo immediately answered with a special offer, and contacted us again a few weeks later.
When we (five couples) made the decision to book at Posa Posa, Angelo and other staff members became our source of information for restaurant recommendations, info on what would and would be closed (in February), and transportation for daytrips. e-mails were answered promptly.
Our rooms were lovely, new and clean (junior suites), and the balconies had wonderful views of both the sea and the town. Breakfast was very good, and served in a lovely room.
Posa Posa added greatly to our wonderful memories of Positano!
Worth the price!!
Breathtaking views, excellent service. Let the staff make your reservation for Capri (the boats load up fast). Breakfast is superb.
Served graciously on the terrace overlooking the city and the sea. If you like to walk, its a distance to the beach, but the bus runs every 10 minutes , costs only 1 euro and stops at the front door. While at the beach look for the Chez Black restaurant. The dining experience that you came here for unfolds on your table. Only the angels eat better. Try the grilled sea bass (best I've ever had). Tell the owner (Salvatore Russo) what you think of the meal. He'll probably send over a glass of Lemoncello. Enjoy every minute. life's too short.
Lovely.This hotel is a small gem. Beautiful views from beautiful rooms and run by a helpful and courteous staff. Yes, it's a little expensive but it's Positano, a siren's cry from Amalfi, Ravello, and Capri.Situated at the top of Via Pasitea, prepare yourself for long, leisurely walks down to the beach. Stop along the way for some pizza, biscotti, or a gelato, but don't hurry back up.This is paradise minus the pool, but that's nitpicking. Posa Posa is peaceful, tasteful, and close to perfect.
A Room with a View
The view from our room was worth the expense. The staff at Hotel Posa Posa was extremely courteous, helpful, and reliable. The bathroom was large and clean. The view from the restaurant of the hotel was beautiful.
This was a very comfortable hotel.
Hotel Posa Posa....
This hotel has the most magnificant views inclusive of the restaurant on the 4th floor where breakfast is served daily. I also liked the fact that it was not in the center of town, personally enjoying the walks to and from the beach. I have one valid dissatisfaction, I do not think that my room was as clean as it could (and should) have been (though the terrace view was spectacular). I had a junior suite with a jacuzzi and felt that the cleanliness (of the bathroom in particular) was more than lacking thus not wanting to utilize the jacuzzi. If this situation was to be (and should be) greatly improved I certainly would recommend this hotel as it really is quite lovely and a great value.
Quite a hike
2 couples spent 3 nights at the hotel posa posa in june. The hotel has just undergone a major renovation and it is really spotless and beautifully decorated. We were upgraded to a junior suite at no extra charge and the room was beautiful. The breakfast setting on a terrace was lovely as well. The hotel is away from the beach and on the one hand that is a blessing because it was quiet, on the other hand it is a long walk to the beach and town. Our only complaint which soured the stay a little, was that on the day of checkout we were offered a late checkout so that we could shower before leaving for the airport, and then unbeknownst to us charged a $50.00 service fee! Sort of left a bad taste in our mouths

The breakfast room at the historic Hotel Posa Posa overlooks Positano by way of large windows that open to an expansive terrace bordered by potted plants in need of a good dose of blood and bone. Through the windows, framed with once distinguished curtains, we can see the cloud which often hangs over the mountain in the early …
Historic Hotel Posa Posa is draped in darkness this morning as we pass the drowsy night porter. Our early departure this morning with our driver to Sorrento concerns him, but we reassure him we will return, highlighting we have no bags with us. Comforted, we suspect he lifts the phone and cancels the breakfast set up as we …
The morning sun greets us again as we enter the restaurant of the historic Hotel Posa Posa. The restaurant serves as the breakfast room in the mornings. We take our place at the same table in the same way as the previous day. Uncleared plates on the adjacent table indicate the presence of other guests. As I survey the …
Friday April 24. Wearing the effects of 2 litres of sangria , 128 ole's and approximately 6579 foot stomps we venture to breakfast a little earlier than usual in preparation for our departure and flight to Naples. I need a coffee. I get to the lift realising I have left Mrs C some 100 metres back. Her pace is, let’s say, relaxed …
... a taxi with another aussie couple up to Anacapri (the old Capri) and headed for the chair lift. Who knew this could be so literal. It was a single chair with a bar you pulled across yourself once you had been nudged into the chair as it came around the cable. The next person would then get onto a chair 10 metres behind you. The views were sensational and it was so quiet travelling in the chair. We rose 589 metres, (and the taxi had already driven us high up on the island to get to ...
