Venus Inn B&B Positano
Ranked #20 of 53 Positano B&B and Inns
Reviewed 20 May 2013

What fun we had at the Venus B&B with Gippy as our proprietor/travel guru/friend !!!!! We got there May 5th and stayed a week. We opted for Gippy's croissants and jellies and excellent coffee in the mornings on our lovely terrace overlooking the water and a cascade of homes built on the side of the mountain. The value is the best we found. The room was large and clean and had a cooking area if needed. The bathroom was efficient yet small and certainly adequate. The highlight was getting to know Gippy who absolutely knows everyone, gives you truthful advice and is so amicable. What can I say he made us feel at home. Be prepared for walking because the street goes only one way. The roads are narrow and you never think those cars are going to make it. Many many many steps if you choose to walk them. Thanks Gippy!

Room Tip: There are only four rooms - each with it's own charm.

My wife and I recently chose the Venus Inn for our four day stay in Positano. We found the property very lovely, and the owner Gippy wonderful. He helped arrange for a private car to pick us up at the Naples airport, then he was there to meet us when we were dropped off above his property. He carried our luggage and made us comfortable in our room. The room was charming in a mediterrean style. It was extremely clean with a beautiful tile floor. The view from the flowered terrace was great, providing us a comfortable spot to relax and enjoy the beauty of the area. We loved having breakfast there daily before starting our day. Gippy was always there in the morning to serve our breakfast and ansnwer any and all questions about the area. It was like having a private Amalfi travel service on site. We loved the fact that the property is located in a less touristy part of Positano which allowed us to mingle with the local folks in the neighborhood including seeing Gippy and his family out for an evening stroll. It was also close to the bus stop. The two restaurants he recommended were great. I would highly recommend the Il Saraceno. The food and service were outstanding. Make sure you look for Danielle who will make sure you have a memorible experience. Gippy once again arranged for our pick up when we left and carried our luggage. Saying goodbye to him was like saying goodbye to our new best friend. We will look forward to returning some day!

I've stayed here a couple of times, most recently as part of my honeymoon in June. I wouldn't stay anywhere else in Positano. Fantastic value for money and Gippy is just the best! He goes out of his way to do everything he possibly can for every guest, his passion for what he does is very obvious and his smile & laugh is contagious.
There's nothing better than sitting on the terrace having breakfast in the morning, the view of the town & water is an amazing way to start the day.

A return visit to Positano and the Venus Inn – this time with my family. Great accommodation and a great host in Gippy who is very hospitable and makes you feel most welcome. He is very generous in freely giving his time, information and recommendations on the area to ensure that your stay in Positano is memorable. He has become a true friend.

Although you can't control the weather, it rained on our first day arriving in Positano (the first time it rained in 3 months!). Weather aside, our stay at the Venus Inn was fantastic. While the first night we were in an extra room that was a little odd, this was because Gippy was allowing us to stay in the room with the private balcony for the next few nights because it was our anniversary trip (and a couple was staying in there for their last night the night we arrived).

The Venus Inn is in a great location, has amazing views, and Gippy serves one mean cappuccino in the morning. The one thing to remind yourselves is that this is NOT a full service hotel, a true B&B. However, with so much to do in Positano, all we really needed it for was to shower and sleep!

If we come back to Positano, we will absolutely stay at the Venus Inn. Great value, Gippy is really kind and helpful (almost like a concierge), and it met all of our needs. Thank you Gippy!

My wife and I stayed at the Venus Inn for 3 nights as part of an anniversary trip. The room was clean and comfortable. The view and location were excellent. I'll never complain about the steps to the ocean (422)! The owner Gippy was a wonderful and accommodating host. His recommendations for local dining and help with our itinerary was invaluable. This room was a spectacular value. Just remember- it is a B&B and not a full service hotel!

Room Tip: Ask Gippy for the room with the private balcony! He should charge a little more for this room- but...

Just arrived home from our wonderful holiday in Positano staying at the Venus Inn and want to start by saying a huge thank you to Gippy for being such a great host. When we got off the bus Gippy appeared with a huge friendly smile and showed us to our apartment. He gave us lots of great tips on where to eat, where to visit, where to go dancing e.t.c and was always happy to answer any questions. The room was clean, bright, comfortable and had a lovely view from the balcony. We loved the location because it was just at the top of the steps leading down to Fornillo beach (better than the main beach) where we spent a lot of time on the sun loungers at the Pupetto beach bar which we would also recommend! Read these reviews and believe them - we had the best holiday ever! Hannah and Jen from Scotland! xxx
