“Perfect place to stay in Positano !”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 July 2014

The staff were very helpful and courteous, the view was fantastic and we really liked the restaurant and the live music. The location was great, too. Not to mention the elevator, reportedly the oldest in Positano and still working great ! but there are also stairs if you prefer.

Room Tip: Don't miss breakfast watching the sunrise !

We wanted were a romantic getaway after a hectic few months and this was the perfect spot for us. The hotel is family owned and the staff is attentive to every detail. The family's personal touch is evident throughout the property. You spot it as soon as you lay eyes on the vintage Volkswagen bug parked outside the entrance. (Guests can use it, but you won't need it because you can walk everywhere in this delightful town.)

Each morning we would toddle upstairs to have a breakfast, roll over to the pool and spend the day soaking up the sun. We enjoyed meeting the owner's daughter and my fiance had a lot of fun practicing his Italian with her and the rest of the staff throughout our stay.

At night, Antonio and Marco at the front desk would provide us with excellent options for dinner within walking distance. We did dine at the hotel one evening and it was really tasty.

If you are looking for a nice place to relax, soak up the sun with sweet surroundings...this is it.

Room Tip: We stayed in #54 and it was perfect for us.

It was last part of our honeymoon trip to Italy. Since we walked in to hotel, the front desk greeted us with such a pleasant smile, showed us everything and took us up to our room. Location is really nice and has a gorgeous view. We stayed for 6 nights and our experience was nothing but amazing. Delicious breakfast every morning, fresh mojito and great pasta with eggplant. Pool area is beautiful but the hours are very weird, you cannot swim after 6 PM!? Really? And no gym which not a huge deal but its always good to have an opportunity to burn some calories before big meal!! Overall great hotel, great and friendly stuff and amazing view.

Situated in one of the most beautiful towns in the world, on the slopes halfway up the hillside, this hotel goes the extra distance to make your visit perfect. The swimming pool is brilliant after a hot day trip to Amalfi, Capri or Sorrento. Sipyour Aperol Spritzer on the terrace and gaze down at the amazing view of the town, beach and mountains. Breakfasts on that vine-festooned arbor is to die for. Very Romantic.
Interiors are comfortable too. But when you're in such a gorgeous place why stay in your room? We got a room with terrace and view of beach and town, but we tended to send time at the hotel on that pool terrace.
Rooms and bathrooms are everything you'd expect, not much TV in English but who cares.
Good WiFi. Front of house staff were very helpful, and arranged transport, gave local recommendations (try maestro fashions) and directions. Many great restaurants stretch along the street, we never tried the hotels restaurant for dinner. They had entertainment too.

The Hotel Poseidon offers not only a spectacular view of Positano, but provides guests with the most gracious staff one could imagine. Every staff member beginning with Antonio at the front desk who upgraded us to a suite (because of our horrendous flight to Rome) and including Beba (an absolute sweetheart), Luca, Giancarlo, and all others provides us with exemplary service in a professional, thoughtful, and friendly manner and always with a smile and willingness to assist. We could not have asked for more. The food beginning with an outstanding European breakfast through dinner was superb. We will always remember our stay, the warm welcome we received, the attention by the staff, the spectacular view, and will highly recommend the Hotel Poseidon.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on a higher floor for the view.

We had a lovely time at this hotel in June 2014. Stayed for two nights. The evening meal in the hotel restaurant was fantastic, have the sea bass. Rooms were very clean with great views. Special mention for Beba the waitress, very attentive, and didn't mind my bad Italian when ordering. We had a piano player with lady singer on one of the nights, who played all our requests. Very enjoyable stay, would certainly recommend it.

The Hotel Poseidon is a romantic and gracious hotel. This last stay was our second time and we will return each time we visit Positano. The staff are friendly, service wonderful and the hotel is beautiful. Gian Luca was always smiling and helpful in the lounge, Gian Carlo manages the dining staff efficiently and with delicious food, the front reception staff are the best, always happy to help with everything. We had my daughter's wedding reception at their restaurant, which was the best choice of restaurants we could have made. The food was in abundance, delicious, and priced right. We loved every moment of our stay. Thank you to everyone at the Poseidon for a memorable stay!
Oh, and by the way, the walk to the beach is not far. We found stairs a short distance from the hotel that took us right to the beach.
