“Perfect place on the Amafi Coast”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 August 2013

We booked three rooms for a family stay and it was perfect. The rooms were comfortable, the staff was very attentive and helpful. The hotel provided free transportation to a near by restaurant for dinner. The hotel next door has a restaurant (Ristorante Locanda Costa Diva) that you can reach easily from the hotel that was one of the nicest dinners we had in the Amalfi Coast. Breakfast was typical Italian meats, cheeses, bread, fruits, and cereal. The hotels rates were very reasonable and the bar service was quick and relatively inexpensive. It was a very quiet location, you couldn't hear the cars or buses from your room, only the sound of the sea. We would stay here again if we are lucky enough to return to Praiano.

we stayed at the hotel for 6 nights. Very comfortable room #103 with a huge teras. Easy car parking. Easy access from positano or amalfi as its in the middle. They also arranged us a boat trip to capri. Friendly crew, always helpful, clean room. It was also next to a public beach and africano the famous night club.

We stayed here for 3 nights and we loved it Our superior room made us feel we were truly on the Italian coastline with very simple, traditional decor, painted high ceilings and big wooden doors. The beds were big and comfy and we had a very peaceful sleep every night. The small additional sitting area lead out to a small balcony with beautiful views of the ocean.

When you take a long set of stairs from the hotel, you arrive at a private 'beach,' a cool set of rocks jutting out from the island complete with lounge chairs. With pretty much no one else around, it is such an amazing experience to jump off the rocks, straight into the ocean and use the little stairs provided to climb back up.

Staying in Praiano in general was a real treat because the area is more private and quiet versus other parts of the Amalfi Coast (although it is quite the crazy bus trip getting to Positano and Amalfi!).

All in all, our stay at Hotel Torre Saracena was memorable and enjoyable. We would definitely return.

Room Tip: Superior rooms are huge with balcony

We stayed in Praiano for 3 nights at Hotel Torre Saracena. The room was spacious and the huge balcony had amazing views of the sea and coastline.
The staff was extremely friendly and helpful.
This is the perfect spot to unwind and relax- very conveniently located to the beach where you can sign up for water tours and activities like wake boarding.

Room Tip: The superior rooms with sea view are a must!

The Hotel Torre Saracena has been one of the best experiences we've had on our trip to the Amalfi Coast and Italy in general. Our room had a completely private balcony with a terrific sea view and a comfortable room with good bed. They provide a breakfast every morning, and their two restaurants are fantastic! The Hotel itself is located perfectly between Amalfi and Positiano, so it makes it ideal for a starting off point to explorer the Amalfi Coast. It is priced very very reasonably, and much cheaper than Positano. My wife and I actually like Praiano better than Positano, as it is much quieter and less touristy, so you get a more local perspective. The Hotel itself is immaculate and very well maintained, and the staff are probably the friendliest we experienced-great people! Very highly recommended.

Room Tip: All rooms seemed to be fairly equal in quality and sea view.

Stayed here for 3 nights during our 2.5 week Italian honeymoon. We stayed in a "superior" room that had a balcony with beautiful ocean views. Had a wonderful, relaxing stay!

PROS:
- Not sure what the standard rooms look like, but our superior room was beautiful and well appointed. Huge room with an additional sitting area room with closet and mini fridge, with separate doors that led out to the balcony. Very happy with the room!
- Clean/well kept
- Amazing views
- Friendly, helpful staff
- Parking - that was big for us!
- Good location in between Positano and Amalfi. Praiano is less touristy/busy than the other coastal towns, but still close enough to easily reach other areas. We had a car so we drove, but there are buses you can take as well. Traffic wasn't near as bad as we expected - just have to drive carefully since the roads are narrow and wind around!
- Pretty good breakfast selection, variety of coffees made to order
- Private "beach" (concrete pad down by the ocean), with lounge chairs for guests on 3 different levels going down to the water
CONS:
- Building itself needs some work - from our balcony, we could see one side of the building that looks very neglected/in need of repairs. Didn't appeat any of the guest rooms are on that side though. All the public areas were well kept though.
- Wifi only worked on our balcony/public areas of the hotel, not inside our room
- Bathroom small compared to the size of our room - but it was clean/no issues!
- Our room was located right at the bottom of a stairwell. Got a little noisy at night as people were coming up/down stairs. Not enough to really bother us though. One night, we woke up in the middle of the night to the sound of firecrackers (or something similar), that sounded like they were going off very close to our room. Very loud/disruptive, went on for a few minutes, stopped, then started again. Not sure what happened but it wasn't pleasant to wake up to at 3:30am! Really my only gripe about our stay there, and since it happened in the middle of the night, probably out of the hotel's control.

Overall very pleased with our stay here and would recommend to others looking to stay in Praiano!

Room Tip: Would recommend staying in a Superior Room with a Sea View

Praiano was our last stop on a two week excursion throughout Italy. The moment we set foot into our Ocean view villa it was love at first sight! Our room overlooked the coastline and was quaint and spacious. The hotel staff Concetta and Luisa were fabulous! Full of recommendations and advice on seeing the town. Very quick and simple bus ride into Amalfi or Positano (bus stop right outside the hotel). Also short 3 min walk to the beach! Would stay there again.
