      A little gem in Positano

      After hiking the Path of the Gods from Praiano to Positano with its what seemed to have been some 10 million steps we had... to climb yet a few more steps to Villa Rosa. But what a pleasure it was to find Linda welcoming smile and detailed explanation about the hotel and Positano. So far we are delighted by our room (overlooking the Mediterranean and with a clear view of one cloister of houses on the hills of Positano) and the services provided.

      The steps are worth it!

      from

      We stayed at Villa Rosa in October 2002 and October 2003 and are now making plans to return in October 2004. Part of the reason for returning to Positano is the delightful Villa Rosa.The views are certainly worth the 70 plus steps. The manager is charming and she is very informative down to the details of helping us buy tomao seeds.

      Breakfast on the balcony is the special part of staying here.

      Bella Villa Rosa

      from

      Just returned from Italy and 2 nights with 3 persons at the wonderful villa rosa. It was better then expected. The room was huge and spotless, with a big terrace overlooking the sea and Positano. We slept with the doors open listening to waves breaking, and breakfasted on the terrace admiring the view! Altho, the stairs to the lobby are daunting, especially after way too much wine and lemoncello, I would stay here again, and again, and again...

      What a spectacular view!

      from

      We just returned from our trip to the beautiful Amalfi Coast. We stayed at the Villa Rosa for 3 nights and were most impressed with our accomodations. The view from our private terrace was absolutely gorgeous!!!! Enjoying breakfast or the sun from our terrace was relaxing and totally made our vacation. The room was clean, furniture simple, with an individual a/c unit making it easy to adjust the temp in the room. The staff were very friendly, informative and accomodating. The stairs that everyone else has mentionned were not that bad, considering you will need to climb stairs to get anywhere around Positano anyways. Another bonus was the price of this B&B relative to the other high price hotels in the region. One tip is to ask for a room on one of the higher floors so that you get a better view of the town. I definitely would return to Positano and stay at the Villa Rosa!

      A perfect place

      from

      This is such a wonderful B&B with warm, caring staff who were helpful in every way imaginable. The view from our room was spectacular, the outside porch was very large, and the room was spotless and inviting.

      Villa Rosa is nearby to the main shopping/beach thoroghfare, but far enough away to still be pleasant and serene. The steps are worth mentioning, but after going up a few times, you get the hang of it. We had to climb up during the middle of the great heat wave in Europe this August (03), and were able to handle it ... so can you. What makes Positano beautiful is that it is perched on cliffsides, so there is really no way to avoid climbing one way or the other. Highly recommended ~ I cannot wait to go back.

      Beautiful Villa Rosa!

      What a wonderful find! Gorgeous rooms and an amazing view...it was so much more than we expected. Will definately go back again...

      Great place - steps included ...

      from

      It is a great hotel indeed .. Depending on the room, you have a nice modern bathroom, clean bedroom, a little cute terrace, and - for the more fortunate - a large private terrace with a magnificent view ... Of course, one needs to pay a price for the view: a billion steps to the hotel and inside the hotel, but what do you expect of a hotel build on a cliff? Anyways, gives you something to remember and to talk about. If you allow me to give you some tips: go to Positano when the annual fashion show takes place (somewhere mid June): it transforms the beach town into a vibrant hip exciting city, alluring kings and beautiful woman ... Also, you could spend the night at Nocelle, in Villa La Quercia, located high up in the mountains in a cute, remote quaint little village. The rooms are great and have an astounding view. Salvatore owns the place and very sweet and lovable Franka keeps the place impeccable. Romance garuanteed ... (Check their website). Ciao!

      What about the steps!

      from

      Just stayed at this hotel.Unfortunately your other reviewers did not mention the 74 steps up to the hotel. It is not easy to carry heavy luggage up and down. We had no help. If you want to get fit then this is the hotel for you with all those steps. Also noisy at night with late night returnees. Okay but nothing special.

      we stayed here during our honey moon in 2001 aug. It was very nice, the people, the food, the service, very very friendly atmosphere, and you can't beat having breakfast on the balconey to the sound of the mediterranean!

      Sublime Views, Great Room

      from

      Located across the street and above fromn the famous Le Siraneuse, the Villa Rosa, is small, charming, welcoming and the rooms have great patios that look across to the sea and the hillside town - great by day, spectacular at night. A small, insignificant breakfast is brought to your room daily but it is enough. Rooms are spotless, have a small refrigerator, spacious and ours had a high curved ceiling painted with frescoes. The hotel had about the warmest staff we have encountered anywhere. Based on staff, location, charm and price, this is a great place to stay.

      Sparkling Villa Rosa

      from

      A most delightful and charming place. Crisp, clean and well run with attention to detail and making guests feel comfortable. Breakfast served on the terrace overlooking the sea was the highlight of the morning. Highly recommend and hope I get back there someday too.

      We came to Italy with the idea of hiking, mingling with locals in small hidden villages, having coffee breaks in holes in the walls cafes, riding trains and buses and mostly hanging with each other... so far we accomplished that. We are in our last full day in the country, in this gorgeous little gem of Positano. The plan had called for a half an …

      ... We decided to have a light lunch at one of the restaurants, and ordered soups to warm us up; tomato for me and vegetable for Kate. I think mine was the best because Kate kept trying to swap! We were also joined for lunch by a few other creatures, both wanted and unwanted. One of the many cats around the town had staked his claim of the restaurant and proceeded to act cute in order to get a pat and possibly a bit of food, I may have 'accidentally' dropped a bit ...

      We discovered that our B&B is actually just a B with a stroll to the local cafe if you want the second B which consisted of a coffee, some orange juice and a croissant -not the buffet selection expected, but hey, you get what you pay for. The room is nice enough although it lacks pillows, towels, TV channels (the remote doesn't work) and the hair dryer plug is decidedly dodgy. We don't intend to complain as these things aren't important plus it's all ...

      Day 3 We were up early as we had to meet our group at 7:45. We went to the buffet for breakfast again. Then we made our way to the theater along with all of the other passengers on the ship! We waited until our color and number were called and headed for our bus. Flavian was our giude. We went first to Pisa and saw the bell tower and church. Then back to the bus, where Flavian discovered that she had lost four people on the walk back. She looked for them, a friend ...

      ... br> cheese and wine. The wine was great, the cheese, however, well lets just say I was brought up that if it smells funny don't eat it, if it has mould growing on it then don't eat it. Guess I'm not yet cultured enough to get over this basic food hygiene concept, lol! We
      stayed up till 1am talking, drinking and having a great laugh.

      All in all I had a great first day, the walk was fantastic and the views even better.
