My two children and I along with another friend and her children stayed at Hotel Savoia for five nights in late April. We would highly recommend this hotel.
First, the location cannot be better. It's very close to the bus stop and the pedestrian area, with easy and quick access to the beach.
The staff at the hotel are very nice and accommodating. I never once had a poor interaction. The even provided beach towels for the days we went to the beach. They happily made all our dinner reservations for us.
The hotel itself is very clean and simply but tastefully decorated, I thought. You don't have to worry with this hotel, it actually looks in person like the pictures on its website. Our rooms were again very clean, and simple. The shower is a nice size, and but the lighting in the bathroom is not very bright. Basic amenities: hair dryer, soaps and shampoos, safe and mini fridge. Our balcony was on the third floor with a beautiful hillside view and a sea view as well. Although our rooms were not connected, we were able to make our balconies connect for one larger terrace and even ate a light dinner out there one night.
The included breakfast is simple, but completely adequate. Boiled eggs, cold cuts and cheeses, yogurts, toast, cold cereal, fruit, juices and tons of pastries. My friend and I loved the cappuccino and coffee every morning.
We did not drive, so I cannot comment on the parking. However, if I were to return to Positano, I would definitely not attempt either driving or parking. Not for the faint of heart!
The only reason that I did not give Hotel Savoia a 5 rating, was the wifi. The do offer free wifi in the lobby and the first floor lounge, and it does work fairly well. However, the lounge could get quite crowded at night with people using the wifi. Our experience would have been perfect if the wifi had also been provided in the rooms. I think that in 2014, free wifi in all areas should be a standard that ever hotel strives to provide.
Would I recommend this hotel? Yes. Would I return myself? If I could not find a similarly situated hotel that offers wifi in all areas, I would definitely return to Savoia.
