“Spectacular view and fine resturants”
Reviewed 9 July 2014

Its hard to see, and the information from the hotel staff was limited, but there are resturants, nightclub and beach activites nearby. At Torre Saracena they have breakfast and and a bar, but no lunsh and dinner are served. But overall - a fantastic place to be.

We stayed at hotel Torre Saracena for three nights at the end of our trip through Italy. Our room was very clean and comfortable with a fantastic private terrace and a view of the sea. The breakfast buffet was a little disappointing but not unusual for Italy. The best thing without a doubt is the location. Praiano is away from the tourist hot spots of positano and amalfi and allows visitors the chance to relax and enjoy the stunning surroundings. Swimming in the sea (200 steps from the hotel) was an absolute highlight. That combined with the exceptionally friendly staff and unbeatable location will definitely have us coming back in the future.

We did a 2 wk. trip to Italy .Rome, Tuscany and Amalfi Coast. We saved the best for the last. We loved Hotel Torre Saracena . Our room was beautiful ,big , great view. We loved the patio that we could watch sunsets or the stormy skies at night. Nice and quite.The staff was so nice and very helpful. Thank you Concetta and Luisa for all your help .Loved the breakfast in the morning with the sea view.The town was nice and quite but close enough with taking buses to get to other towns .
The steps down to the water are worth it .Just next door we walked down to the beach and watched the fishermen in the morning bringing in fresh fish ,the same we ate for dinner that night. Some of the best restaurants. The Vivar Wine Bar was the best a must ,have to have at least 3-4 hours.
Priana is a very special place, and we loved it. When we come back we will stay at Hotel Torre Saracena. Mike and Pat from U.S.

Room Tip: worth paying extra for the ocean view, we had high ,corner suite.

The reception staff are very friendly and helpful. The rooms are basic but the views are outstanding. Spend more time outside. We had a small terrace to have lunch and look out to the sea. Breakfast was basic but eating it on the terrace is worth it. We found a very good little food store up on the hill just follow the stairs straight up in front of the hotel. Lots of stairs but worth the walk. 200 steps down to the sea from our room 218. Only did it once but it was worth it. Water is cold but refreshing. Go to the beach just on the other side down the stairs about 100 meters from the hotel. Internet connection was hard to get in the room but was easy to catch out near the stairs. If you can not walk up stairs don't stay here because there is no lift.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a balcony. You are in the middle from Positano and Amalfi city. Take the bus rig...

This family run hotel has lots of charm and a friendly staff always happy to help. The rooms are basic but possess stunning views, many with a little balcony or terrace to sip a coffee and enjoy the bright sunshine and surrounding gardens. Its 200 steps down to the water but worth every bit when you jump into the refreshing waters at the base of the hotel. While the breakfast could be slightly better, overall this is a winner and a place I'd definitely go back too. Many hotels have that impersonal 'we've seen it all' feel, but here you really do feel welcome and appreciated and that makes a big difference. as for the views and the scenery - truly unbeatable, and much more convenient than staying higher up the hills of Priana.

We were staying in this hotel 2 years ago, but sorry, Elena, I couldn't for some reason leave the review. The Hotel is located on the cliff so the views are spectacular. The view you can die for. We decided to spend our honeymoon in Italy. However Italy is all beautiful, so we had to choose where to go. I started browsing internet and heard that one of the most beautiful places is the Amalfitano coast and we got into the bullseye. The place is one of the best ones I've ever visited and believe me, I've visited many places in the world so I can compare. The next choice was the hotel. Telling the truth, this hotel was suggested by one of our friends, who said that this hotel is worth checking in and we trusted his suggestion without further endue. The hotel is located on the cliff so one of the minuses is that in order to get to the water, you need to go 200 steps each way. However, this minus is easily compensated by the staff and owners of the hotel. Thank you Elena, Luigi, Luisa,Concetta very much for all your hospitality and making our stay unforgettable. All of the rooms are great, I'm not sure if all of them have the private terrace, but ours had it and again, the VIEW is great. The rooms ok in size, have big bed pretty much space for moving around it, have Wi-Fi and TV. The breakfast is also good with something to choose from. I strongly suggest to pay attention to it. You will feel the genuine Italian Hostpitality, great Italian view and around the hotel there are plenty of the restaurants, so you can taste Italy. What else do you need in order to get your stay unforgettable?

Your friends from Russia Alexander and Ella.

Room Tip: Always get the room with the private terrace to the righ of the SPA, it is worth it.

Great views!
Rooms are quite basic and clean. The two chalets we had were side by side, both had fabulous sea views.
I would stay there again in a flash. There were little local grocers and a few nice restaurants within walking distance, but you need wheels if you want to go to Positano.
Exclusive night club'The Africano" is a few minute walk that is worth taking.
Good breakfast served with a smile!

Room Tip: I think the main building rooms are higher standard than chalets, but chalets have balcony and views...
