Hotel Tramonto d'Oro
Travel Blogs from Praiano
Traffic in Naples is even worse than Rome! We drove from our hotel to the historic district and it took forever! Sergio said that Naples is the most densely populated city in the western world.
We walked on streets built by the Romans over 2000 years ago. We walked through several churches. At the Church of San Lorenzo Maggiore we went …
Took the van through the chaos that is Naples and made out way to the chaos that is Pompeii. Pompeii is everything it is said to be despite the industrial tourism. We spent just a couple hour which barely scratches the surface. Naturally everyone's favorite is the brothel with bed and lurid frescoes.
We then drove to Sorrento, wedged the …
The flight seemed interminible. Leslie got a little sleep, but neither Cheryl nor Jean got a wink. We did watch movies though.
We were in Economy Plus, or some such thing that Cheryl got for us so we had more leg room than you usually get and we got free drinks. That was nice. The cabin stewards were not. But that's another story.
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 ...
... from the crater is analysed, various crater lines from lava ash deposits and much more but I can't remember!!! The views from up there were absolutely breathtaking. We walked further around to actually see the steam coming from the side of the volcano before making our way back down to the four wheel drive bus. I am soo gald we did this tour and I am also glad I did not know what was involved as I probably wouldn't have gone because of the steep climb to the top. We ...
How has this hotel rated in the past?
Our room was lovely with the best view ever - Positano and Capri. November is the perfect time to view because of the spectacular sunsets!

I have to call this hotel "A Little Bit of Heaven In Praiano"
Highlight of our Italian Holiday!
My family just returned from 10 days in Italy, including time spent in Tuscany and Rome. We all agreed that our time spent at the Tramonto d`Oro was the highlight of our trip. The staff was incredibly friendly and warm, while still maintaining a high level of professionalism. Great food, nice rooms, and the most incredible views of the sea, sunset, and neighboring villages. Tramonto d`Oro is the perfect location, quiet enough for some relaxation, but with the local bus stopping right in front of the hotel, you can travel to Positano and other seaside towns to explore, without worries about driving the twisting coastal roads or parking.
I would highly reccommend Tramonto d`Oro to other travelers!
Little did my husband and I know that when a couple from our home town in New York randomly recommended a place for us to stay on the Amalfi Coast in Italy, we'd end up in pure paradise! The Hotel Tramonto d'Oro in Praiono, Italy on the Amalfi Coast is a family run establishment that exudes charm, hospitality, and warmth. The rooms have little balconies with the best view of the Mediterranean in the area. The food is fabulous and discounted dinners are available for all guests. Best of all, the proximity of the hotel to Positano is well worth the trip...we got to enjoy the excitement of touristy Positano, but return to bucolic Praiono about five miles away each day! The members of the family run establishment made us feel like family too, and when we left, graced us with a beautiful hand painted ceramic plate. Whenever we return to this part of Italy, we will DEFINITELY stay at Hotel Tramonto d'Oro...which really is a little piece of heaven!
We booked a room for 255 EUR per night at this hotel that advertise a picture on the internet where you can see that it is located on the beach
When we got there (finally) it turn out to be on the clif - and if you want to get close to the water (no beach couple of ston rocks) you use the 400 stairs down!!! in short totaly different picture of another hotel.
the managemnt "tried" to help us by charging "only" one night...
of course we didn't agree and run out - not before we took a signed letter which said "free of charge"
we believe the hotel managment knows about this misleading picture at the active hotel site.
We arrived to positano which was great and rented a 3 rooms appartement right next to the beach (sea view) for 100 EUR per night!!!the best
We stayed at the Hotel Tramonto d'Oro for four nights over the last two days of Winter and the first two days of Spring this year.
We just came back from our 25th Anniversary (March '05) and we loved every part of Italy. Our favorite was our gorgeous balcony view from the Hotel Tramonta d'Oro in Praiano, Italy. It is in a perfect location... right next to the town of Positano....and just a qiuick bus ride up the beautiful Amalfi coast to Almafi and Rovello....beautiful sights too. This hotel is run by the most friendly Italian family (the Espositos), Camella, Agnes, and Mama Esposito. They were by far the friendliest and caring people we met in all of Italy! We miss them already! The view is breathtaking when the sun begins to set. Even if you dont have a room with a view, there is a beautiful terrace to sit outside up on top of the hotel to enjoy the sights. Also, the resturant has fabulous views from all directions....outside and inside too!! A charming Italian church is built into the coastline next door.
Fantastic wedding reception and excellent service!!!
Last July (2004) Karl and I had a blessing in the church san Genario in Praiano which the Hotel Tramonto d`Oro overlooked.
Our wedding reception was held at the hotel. This is a family run hotel and everyone there were so friendly and helpful. Nothing was too much to ask.
The food was excellent the quality, freshness , presentation and the service. Coming from an Italian background myself I could see and taste the quality. They even arranged my beautiful wedding cake wich was traditional lemon cake from the area.
The whole holiday was supurb and I would strongly recommend a holiday or wedding recption there!!
I hope to go back one day and maybe do the cookery course holiday.
Loved the Hotel Tramonto d'Oro
Last month I had the pleasure of staying at this Hotel for 4 nights whilst I did a cooking course there. I had a fantastic time with great lessons, great chefs and great hospitality from Mrs. Esposito, Carmella and the wonderful Simona. This is a wonderful hotel where the service really stands out. My room was fantastic with wonderful ceramic floors etc., food in the restaurant great, with wonderful views of the coast. Staff in the restaurant great too. Praiano is a taste of heaven away from the very touristy Positano but still easy to reach by local bus for 2 euro each way. I would recommend this hotel for its excellent customer service and 'ambience'.
Vacation Heaven is right here at Tramonto d'Oro
Oh, Wow.........cannot begin to describe the Hotel Tramonto! Not only was the room, patio and views breath taking, but the staff were beyond excellent!
Carmella spoke excellent English, which was refreshing when traveling in a country were it is hard to communicate. Our trip took many turns, I like to refer to as an adventure, which afterwards, we can laugh about, but the Tramonto staff was always there with a friendly helpful hand in the current crisis!
If your going the the Amalfi Coast, the Hotel Tramonto d"Orno is a must.
Fabulous Family Hotel
This 4-star hotel located in quaint Praiano between Positano and Amalfi is a super place for those who want to stop, relax and smell i fiori.
Run since the 1950's by the Famaglia Esposito, the Tramonto D'Oro offers great rooms, wonderful views of the Tirranian Sea out to Capri, and fine dining.
A highly recommended stop for those who value friendly and efficient service.
