Imagine waking up each morning with wonderful views of the sea. This was truly an amazing hotel and when i walked in i wondered where's the TV then realized with views like you do outside of the rooms you don't need a TV. The hotel was great, breakfast could be a little more substantial but i do like eating. Rooms were clean but the real hidden gem was you walk down the stairs. I think a review said 200 something (more like 400 when we counted) however it then takes you down to a beach which is not the main beach so that its quiet.

The accommodation is just out of the main hustle and bustle and is absolutely perfectly located. Would most definitely stay there again, had an amazing time and Positano is completely stunning and amazing.

Room Tip: Pay the extra and get a sea view room. The scenes are breath taking. Something out of a postcard.

Staff were friendly and check-in and out was smooth. The breakfast was tasty itialian style food. Rooms met my expectations for the price and we had a sea view room with a beautiful view and our own private deck. It was a long walk uphill from the city center but the whole city is built on a hill so climbing hills and stairs is unavoidable and to be expected. I would definitely recommend this hotel!

What a star, family run, perfect position, and peaceful, the pensione so suited our experience of Positano in Sept 2013. We had a fabulous view of the ocean and the staff were very helpful, the breakfast suited our needs and recommending the local restaurant Ill Fornilo was the icing on the cake. This is what a holiday should be all about. Relaxing, beautiful views and food to die for, that's it in a nutshell. We are telling everyone to stay at casa Guadagno AND please go to Ill Fornillo, you won't be dissapointed. Also do the local red bus down to positano central to the town beach and walk up the ramp over the warf, around the headland to the littlebeach, much better for swimming and dining, the water is refreshing and offers that something else. Loved it all highly recommended.

Room Tip: Catch positano local red bus to the grotto stop and easy walk down to the hotel.

Wonderful wonderful wonderful. We loved staying here. A lovely family buisness. small but comfortable rooms. we had a balcony to a beautiful room. Service was friendly and helpful. The hotel is situated close to the road up top not the beach. But we found this an advatage as we didn't have to drag lugge down then up all the stairs. And it was so easy to walk around everywhere once you settled in. We were in Positano for 3 days in september 2013. And would go back in a heartbeat and especially to Pensione casa guadagno :)

Its a Great Family Run B&B,The rooms were nice and clean . It was a good 15 min. walk to the main beach and 400 steep steps to the local Fornilla beach,
The Owners were very helpful and knowledgeable.
The view from the room was very nice and enjoyed the balcony that we had .
Breakfast was very basic and simple .

Great family run B&B with great room space and views! We made the mistake of taking the longest journey there, but it was worth the wait. I did not want to leave and would come back in a heartbeat.

The breakfast is meager (croissant, yogurt, coffee), but it's pretty much unlimited. You are welcomed with some vino, which is very welcome after a long journey! You might hear donkeys walking by in the morning (not fellow traveler's and their rolling suitcases), but I found it quaint.

This is the second time I have stayed in Casa Guadagno (even got the same room with beautiful ocean views) and the girls (cousins) looked after us in their usual "no fuss" way. This pensione is quite a way up the hill from the main beach which gives you a chance to see all the restaurants and visit all the beautiful shops on the way down. If you're not into walking there is a local bus to take you up and down. The continental breakfast is good and the place is spotless.
