Reviewed 8 September 2013

We stayed in a triple room that was very very spacious - that was a very nice surprise. The room had a balcony overlooking the amazing Tirreno sea, and also a very spacious bathroom, with a strong shower. The decoration is simple, but good. For us, the location of the hotel was also good. While it is a 15 min walk from the city center - through the cars, I may add - the walk is done overlooking amazing areas, making it all very pleasant. Beware for you not to miss the entrance to the hotel. It is a narrow side street near some parking areas that can be missed by some as it is not an obvious street. We were all three women and walking back to the hotel late at night was absolutely no problem. For those interested in accessing Fornillo beach (Spiaggia del Fornillo), the hotel is located some 250+ steps above it. It is perfect for swimming and also to avoid the more crowded areas. I thought this was a very strong asset. Just reminding everyone there is no wifi in the room but instead in the common areas. Breakfast is basic and simple. As I am not the breakfast person, thought it to be good.

I was very impressed by this hotel. We stayed in room 77 and it was a large room with a gigantic balcony overlooking the cliff town. The room was clean and spacious with a mini fridge and we even had a couch. One of the hostess's, Daniela was great for recommending restaurants and helping us book transportation off the island when we sadly had to leave. I would stay at this hotel every time I go back to Positano. The only thing I would have liked is a softer bed, but from my experience, all of Europe seems to sleep on stiff beds.
Once you go down the elevator to the bottom, the beach is about 220 steps down and it has a bar where you can charge drinks and the chairs to your room. This beach is nice and quieter from the larger beach in town but there were still kayak rentals and other things to do.
Breakfast in the morning was wonderful with pastries, meat, cheese, fruit, rolls, juice, cereal, and fabulous cappuccinos. The guy working the breakfast never seemed to stop working as we would see him downstairs at the bar during the day. The breakfast balcony was also gigantic and had a beautiful veiw of the water and the mountain. A great way to wake up!

Hotel Vittoria made our trip to Positano everything we could have wished for. Our room was stunning, tranquil and comfortable with a breathtaking view of the sea from the spacious terrace. Daniela was outgoing and always friendly, providing directions and suggestions, and even towels for the beach. Breakfast was fresh and we were never without a warm cappuccino during the meal, thanks to the kind and attentive gentleman making it, whose name we unfortunately did not get.

The whole hotel had a friendly and peaceful ambiance- it felt small but very well-run, and for the great price, we consider it a total bargain. The steps to the quiet beach below were a feature we enjoyed, as Vittoria has its beautiful two-hundred step private pathway, which provides opportunity to stop and take in the view from many perspectives on treks to and from the beach.

We were only able to stay for two nights, but have been dreaming of our return to Positano ever since, and of our happy return to Hotel Vittoria.

Room Tip: Pay just a little bit more to get a room with a terrace with a sea view. It is magical.

We stayed here based on recommendations from friends who love it. We had the best room with an immense terrace overlooking the sea. The hostess, Daniela was more than helpful for everything. We had dinner at the affiliated hotel restaurant below on the private beach. It's one of the few restaurants that has an elevator down to the beach, though it was out of commission while we were there, so be prepared to walk the steps like everywhere else in Positano.
The rooms are darling. We loved the privacy of the location. And there's boat taxis from the beach to the central beach. (even a free one). Overall we thought this hotel was very charming!

This is a lovely hotel, the rooms are massive, and ours had a huge terrace that looked over the coastline. Positano is known as the city of steps, so we knew we would have a lot to climb up and down and it was never a problem. The beach at the bottom of the steps (old beach) is lovely and a lot quieter than the main beach which is only a 10 minute walk away. I would recommend this hotel to anyone, was clean and comfortable and really, everything in Positano is beautiful!

No matter where you stay in Positano, you will encounter a lot of stairs. However, it's important to note that Hotel Vittoria's location definately means a lot of stairs! Located above the smaller (and nicer!) beach in Positano, there are approximately 200 steps down to the beach. The beach is beautiful and for 7 euros you can rent a beach chair and umbrella all day. Hotel Vittoria isn't located in the main hub of Positano and it takes about 10 minutes by foot to reach the main town. We didn't mind the walk but I think it's an important thing to note before booking the hotel. Hotel Vittoria has very friendly staff and a decent breakfast spread to be enjoyed on the beautiful balcony looking out on to the water. Our room was enormous! We enjoyed a comfortable bed and TWO balconies. I would definately recommend this hotel, but please note about it's location.
