This was a great base for our stay in Positano. Room was small, but clean. Balcony and view were amazing. Service was so friendly and helpful. Would definitely stay again. Try the restaurant while you're here. Risotto in a lemon is amazing!

Stayed there with my wife in October of 2013. What can I say? Anything you want from a hotel and more is here. The staff is extremely helpful and courteous. Room was awesome with a great view. Hotel is extremely clean. Breakfast was good, restaurant (for dinner) is amazing.
I would come back for sure and would recommend this hotel to anyone going to Positano.

Room Tip: We upgraded from the room on the top floor to the room on the first floor because of the upgrade pri...

Spent 4 nights at the Villa Gabrisa. It came highly recommended by friends who had stayed there in the past, and it did not disappoint. Our room was enormous with a huge terrace. The view was unbelievable. Breakfasts overlooking the ocean were a treat; the food was nothing special -- though completely adequate -- but the views were spectacular. We had dinner in the hotel restaurant (we actually sat outside) one evening, and the food was excelllent, probably the best we found in Positano. Would highly recommend as a great place for couples.

Room Tip: We got one of the larger rooms which had a huge terrace. It was gorgeous. But we also would have bee...

We stayed in the External studio suite for 5 days We loved everything about our suite. The view, the privacy we loved it. Leyla was such a big help to us, I had many questions for her and she was so patient with me with answering them. She took such good care of us. She booked all our transfers and also helped me the trains. We felt like we were part of the family. The restaurant at Hotel Gabrisa was our favorite. We had lunch and dinner there many times we kept going back. I am so thankful that our first time to Italy was spent at Hotel Gabrisa. I highly recommend this hotel. Thank you

Room Tip: External Studio Suite has privacy and is very quiet . The view is awesome.

The hotel is nice but not a 4 star location. It is a solid 3 star place. The staff (family) is exceptional and will attend to your every need. The restaurant outside seating is spectacular with great views of the bay. It is in walking distance of the main part of the town.

If you are not looking for luxury but want a clean, serviceable, very friendly hotel this is a good place for you.

This is a very well run family owned boutique hotel. Owner Robyn (originally from NZ), husband and children Isabella and Gabrielle made us feel at home and looked after us so well we did not want to leave. Our personal transfers from and to Naples were organised by Isabella and the company was reliable and efficient. Our seaview balcony room was at the front of the hotel and the views were amazing. We spent every afternoon on the balcony with a bottle of wine admiring the views and the passer bys. The bus stop for the town bus is located at the hotel door. The walk down to town and the beach is very pleasant with lots of photo opportunities and shops to explore. The walk back is uphill and includes stairs but there is always the bus. Robyn advised us where to catch the ferries to Amalfi and Isle of Capri. The Loccataine bathroom toiletries were beautiful, beach towels are available in carry bags for guests and WiFi access is complimentary. The hotel has an excellent restaurant with an extensive wine list and you really don't need to go anywhere else but as we stayed for 6 nights we did visit a few other establishments. A substantial breakfast is served and I loved how the friendly waitress would remember our tea and coffee order every morning. Well done Robyn and team, we can't wait to go back!

Room Tip: Book a room at the front of the hotel with a balcony - the views are worth it.

If you take the bus in to Positano, you'll need to get off at Bar Nationale and walk 10 minutes down the hill to the hotel. If you're coming to/from Naples airport or train station, I'd highly recommend you splurge for car service. On our way in we did not, so we took a bus from Naples airport to the Naples train station where we got off at Pompeii Scavi to tour the ruins. The train station is just two minutes from the entrance and you can store your luggage at no charge. From there we got back on the train to Sorrento and then transferred to a bus to Positano, then walked down the hill to the hotel. Needless to say, quite a journey!! On the return, the hotel owner was able to get a car at the very last minute (thank you it was well worth it) for a reasonable rate. If there is one area to splurge, trust me this is it.

I travel fairly frequently and I found the family that runs this small hotel to be very nice and helpful and the rooms satisfactory. The rates are reasonable for Positano for sure. The location is quite a walk from the main area of Positano. They'll tell you it's just a short 10 minute walk, but I think they are used to the heat because it was a bit of a trek for us:-) I think in cooler months it would be fine, but June through September you'll sweat to death in the heat of the sun by the time you make the walk, so take the bus. I believe they run every 15 minutes and there is a bus stop very near to the hotel.

It was my mom and I on this trip, so we had requested two beds. The room was ready for us when we arrived on the second floor and with two beds like I had requested. They had brought in a twin roll up bed, as the bed in the room is a double and not split king like you see in many other rooms in Europe. It made things a bit tighter in terms of space, but it was much better than having to share a bed! The bathrooms are in desperate need of some shelving. We found it challenging to get ready without anywhere to set our curling irons, make up, etc.

The balcony in our second floor room was HUGE with the most amazing view you'll ever see. There are lovely potted flowers and grapes hanging from the arbor. It truly is lovely and really something you'll never forget...the horizon goes on endlessly. In the evenings a singer and musicians walk the streets and sing. They stop out front to perform and it is really a treat to take it all in from your balcony. There is an outdoor restaurant that also has amazing views where you can sit and enjoy breakfast, cocktails, lunch or dinner. By the way, the cappucinos at breakfast were the best ever!!!

The bed was comfy and I slept well. The one thing that was a nuisance during our stay was that the AC unit in our room kept dripping water on to the TV and floor and management had to come up twice to drain it. We had to keep towels out covering the floor and TV.

If you're a first time visitor to Positano, be sure to make to trip up to Ravello. It's beautiful! We wished we would have spent two nights there as well, but maybe next time. Also, we did a walking tour of Positano as soon as we arrived with Christine (http://www.discoverpositano.it/). It was helpful in getting the lay of the land the history on Positano. I highly recommend it.

Room Tip: second floor rooms with large balconies
