“Beautiful Hotel if you get the right room”
Reviewed 12 September 2013

We enjoyed our stay at this hotel. Praiano is a more relaxing and less crowded option on the Amalfi Coast and Hotel Torre Saracena is conveniently located near the bus stop. The staff was very friendly and the hotel views were incredible. Just note that the rooms you see in the photos are the Superior rooms and there is a very big difference in quality. We stayed in the Superior room for the first two night and a standard room the last night because we asked to be upgraded and they could accommodate us for part of our stay. The hotel is very quaint and doesn't have a kitchen, but they serve a continental breakfast and make a wonderful cappuccino. The ocean is 220 steps down and there are some very unique restaurants nearby including La Pirata and Africana Night Club (in a cave). The town is about a 20 minute walk on the narrow roads, so just know that this is a great place to relax, but if you want to get out and see the sights, it may be better to stay in a town with a ferry stop too like Positano or Amalfi.

Room Tip: Make sure to book the Superior if you want a room that looks like the photos.

Reviewed 6 September 2013 via mobile

The reviews were all great and the photos looked awesome. I booked 3 nights on a weekend special that included breakfast. We had a standard room and the rate was 110 € plus 5 € for parking. We arrived late and were warmly welcomed by the young man at the front desk. He assisted with luggage, acted as valet and was washing dishes later that evening when we went to the front desk. He appeared to be on his own.

Our concern started as we were led to our room 5 flights of stairs down. The room itself was shabby, bathroom tiny. We spoke to the young man about the difficulty of all those stairs and he offered an upgrade for 40 € more. We took a look at the better room, but with the exception of being a couple floors up there was nothing to suggest sn upgrade.

The pounding music at the disco next door kept us up until 3:00 am, when we then discovered our bed snd bath covered with ants. Decided to turn on the a/c to create white noise
Hoping to get some sleep, but turning on the a/c also turned on the neon blue light flashing the temp. Around 8:00 the peglegged elephant above us started doing a jig, but we decided to just get up and have breakfast.

The reception area where the breakfast is served was stifling hot. The offerings were dreary and unapealing. We decided to leave. As we were checking out the girl at the desk offered to move us to a better room, but the entire ecperience had soured us on this place.

Positives; great views, reasonably priced room & parking and very friendly staff.
Negatives: photos not representative of the majority of the rooms. 200 steps to their water cliff or what they call a beach. Shabby rooms, bugs, noise, steps and more steps.

One night, I lost my camera somewhere but hotel staff found and kept it at front desk next day!!
We have met 5 or 6 hotel staff, they were all smiling and frendly.
Many restaurant around hotel 5-10min walking distance.
We have not swim at any beach during the stay becasue hotel has awesome access to the sea.

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.

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!
