“Great place to stay in Positano”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 June 2014

We stayed here for two nights in May 2014 and enjoyed it very much. We were a couple and two friends and were able to have rooms next to each other and shared the fabulous terrace with a beautiful view of the town and the coast. The hosts were very friendly and nice. They were also helpful, recommending a good restaurant for dinner and making sure we had the right type of coffee in the morning. There is walking to and from town, but enjoyable for the views and the experience of seeing the town. Having parking available as part of the cost was definitely a bonus in a town where there isn't much available. All in all, it was a great place to stay and we would stay here again. You will love the terrace on a sunny day!

Agnello and his family were perfect hosts, very kind helpful and warm. The location was great, just enough of a walk up the hill to help you feel better after a positano lunch or dinner but so much that you came home panting for air.
Incredible views from our very large balcony.
We would definitely return.

View from balcony is wonderful. Owners of this family run small bed and breakfast could not be more accommodating. The rooms are very basic as well as the breakfast. But the location and view makes this place a very affordable option. If you are looking for bells and whistles - this is not your place - but if you are looking for affordable in a very expensive, exclusive location - this is a very nice option. I stayed here for 7 nights and enjoyed everyday.

I stayed here for three nights as a solo traveller. The family is very friendly & although they don't speak much English, they try. The room was outdated but charming & very spacious & clean. The breakfast was typical European...no fringes at all. At all. Most (or all?) rooms have a really lovely, large balcony (that connects to neighboring rooms so, not much privacy) & a fridge. The downside is there is no air conditioning (inhumane in August) & it's quite far from town. It takes at minimum 15 (sweltering) minutes to go downhill into town & more on the way up. There is a bus you can take but it's very crowded & hot (but cheap at €1.20). I chose to build my leg muscles & trek it up & down daily. You should know that if you have heavy bags, the taxi stands are FAR from the ferries. I found out later there is a porter service that charges €8 per bag (so worth it). Or cab it for ~€20. Overall, I'd stay again...outside of the summer months.

We are planning a trip to Positano in early September and wanted to check this apartment. But I don't see any contact information here other than the address.

If someone has an email or phone, please share.

Thanks in advance

We stayed for one night at Pensione Florida Residence. It was perfect. The staff was very nice, helpfull and welcoming. The place had its own parking lot which was, we came to find, priceless when you travel by car in a town like Positano. Cheap parking does not exist in this town!
The room had an excellent view of the whole city and the ocean from its balconys.
The bathroom in the room was very nice and tidy, with small packages of soap, lots of towels and in good shape.
Breakfast was good, with more variety than we experienced in almost every other place we stayed. I would pick this place over Lonely Planet Italys top recommendation "Pensione Maria Luisa".

It was a great time at Pensione Florida Residence. The team is very attentive, friendly and helpful. The room was clean. The terrace offers a great view which lets your thoughts wander and forget about any stress. The bus stop is around the corner.
