“Great Place in Great Part of Town”
Reviewed 8 September 2013

My wife and I just had a 3 night stay Hotel La Bougainville in a double bed room with a sea view and terrace.

The hotel is in a great part of town, just off the entrance to the main pedestrian walkway. It's about a 5 minute walk down to the main beach and the main part of town is even closer as it's on the way. It is located on the main street through Positano, so there is a little noise from passing cars and scooters but it didn't disturb my wife and I as we live in NYC.

Hotel was very clean and the staff was very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was great. It was a nice layout with croissants, hard boiled eggs, cereals, yogurt, fruit, etc. The blood-orange juice and cappuccinos were especially good. The staff helped us make reservations and get taxis during our stay and they all spoke excellent English.

I would definitely recommend this place if you're going to be in Positano and I would certainly stay here again myself. Great value and great service.

The hotel has been recommended to us by our daughter and we are glad we booked it.
The people are friendly and helpful, rooms are clean and for breakfast you have lots of options.
Not to speak about the location which was perfect for us.

Room Tip: For a few $$'s more choose a room with a view.

The Holel La Bougainville was like having a room in wonderland. So well located in the midst of town it was just a short walk to anywhere you want in Positano. The staff was warm and welcoming and so helpful with every question we had.

I highly recommend this hotel!

Room Tip: Must ask for a water view. Spectacular!!

The Hotel La Bougainville was the perfect place to stay during our fabulous trip to Positano. I was extremely pleased with the service that the staff provided at the hotel from the minute I inquired online about availability. We were happy with all aspects of our stay- from the clean, quiet, and air conditioned room, the delicious breakfast in the darling breakfast room, great location (easy walk to the beach), helpful, friendly staff and their recommendations for dinner and stores to purchase picnic items. Before we arrived in Italy Andrea provided me with train and bus information from Naples to Positano, as well as booking an excursion to Capri for us - so helpful.

I'm sure you can find fancier places to stay in Positano. But the combination of Hotel La Bougainville's location, the property itself, its helpful owner, Marella, and the price are tough to beat.

In short, the walk down to the beach is quick and easy. The rooms are clean and quiet. The breakfast is just right. Marella and her staff offer great local tips and do everything to make your stay in Positano memorable.

We wouldn't think of staying anywhere else if and when we return.

2nd stay in this hotel, yes, returning guest...Why?
1 Great (proffesional and welcoming) staff! (thanks for all the help Andrea, Raphaelle and Marella! Love ya'll)
2 Best location (most close to the beach, when travelling by car, you can park your car in front of the hotel. Beautifull walk from the hotel to the beach in less then 10 minutes.
3 The rooms: Finally a great bathroom with warm or cold water, exactly how you want it (no temperature going up and down like in most other hotels/B&B's we've stayed at) Super comfy beds (new matrasses, I was told!!), an airconditioning that works how it should and we got free Wi-Fi (thank you!) and it worked great (which is rare in this part of Italy, no clue why...) We had a room with ocean view which was beautifull, together with a good overview of Positano.
Excellent breakfast, everything clean and tidy everywhere, great value for money, we will definitly come back or send our friends here. Great hotel for lovers!

Room Tip: Room 34! (Large room with ocean view) Raphaelle makes the best coffee latte's.
