I searched and agonized for months trying to make up my mind as to the best place to spend our one and only night in Positano before moving into a villa we had rented with two friends for a week in Piano di Sorrento. It was the first night of our two week vacation in Italy and it was my husband's birthday so I wanted something "special". My search kept bringing me back to Hotel Miramare.
What an absolute delight! It was easy to communicate with Nicola via email. We requested "Room 210" with it's glass wall shower looking out to the sea and it's large balcony with a spectacular scenic view. My biggest fear were the 100+ steps that I read about on TA but we dealt with them and it wasn't a problem.
Although it poured rain during our entire stay and we weren't able to use our beautiful balcony, we didn't let the weather dampen our spirits. Staff provided excellent service carrying our luggage down those stairs from the car to our room and then back up again upon our departure.
The breakfast and breakfast room itself were both wonderful. The view from the restaurant is so pretty.
I had originally planned to book at Il San Piedro but decided that for the same price as a no view room there, I could have a full view room at Miramare. Funny enough, I subsequently learned that the same owner who developed Il San Piedro had developed Hotel Miramare I believe back in the forties. No wonder it's so romantic!
What a wonderful, exquisite and quaint hotel. If you are like I was and having a difficult time making a decision on where to stay in Positano, trust me; go with Miramare. I guarantee you won't be disappointed!
