Very nice hotel. Antonio was great as was his Mother and sisters. Unfortunately the restaurant was closed due to it being off season but the breakfast was amazing! Beautiful view from room, clean also. Very personable people and made our stay extremely nice! Only odd thing is that there is no shower, but nice clean tub.

During our 3 night/4 days stay at the Holiday Hotel, we were extremely well looked after by Marianna and her family. Our room had a great view, the breakfast was absolutely delicious as was the dinner we enjoyed at the hotel. Sightseeing and excursions were made easy as Antonio provided a complimentary shuttle service to the local beach and everybody was very helpful with info needed for trips to Positano, Capri etc. Very welcome was the wireless internet service, as well as the complimentary parking. We will be back.

We stayed at the Holiday Hotel for 5 days - what a lovely location to view and visit the Amalfi Coast. Praiano is ideal for those who like a quiet location (as opposed to Positano and Amalfi that seem very busy) - the Holiday Hotel provides a very relaxed atmosphere, the staff are extremely friendly and accommodating. The food at the hotel is very good. The buffet breakfast is good and varied - we also had dinner on several evenings - the food is good but we were also influenced by the fact that there is a steep walk back to the hotel from other restaurants in the town.
Our room had a brilliant view of the sea and coast (I understand all rooms have a sea view) and was very comfortable.

From the moment we arrived rather late in the eve, at the hotel, rather exhausted after dragging a heavy case up the hill from the bus stop (we could have phoned the hotel for a lift, but we had left our mobiles at home) we were welcomed by Antonio, who said we could still be in time for an eve meal..bliss! We hadn't realised the hotel offered evening meals in the restaurant..with the most gorgeous view! They were good value, delicious, and we ate several times there over our 2 week stay, as it was no more expensive really than the local restaurants...plus the view! Marianne was so helpful and accommodating with advice and tips, and both she and all the staff were very concerned when I wasn't well for a few days. Antonio and Angelo were a delight in the restaurant, and didn't mind when we stayed on late into the evening with a coffee or drink..and were quite happy to chat..very enjoyable. The hotel was run by a family and it showed..understated, not fussy but so helpful and lovely. The local buses ran a good service, and we didn't hire a car...but got fit with climbing up and down many steep steps to the local beach or town in general. The hotel did run a courtesy car to the beach which was helpful! We felt thoroughly relaxed and spoilt and were so pleased we had booked here, and not in Positano or Amalfi. The only slight criticism, was that the breakfast only offered a fruit squash drink and not fresh fruit juice, and being a Brit who loves a good cup of tea...we could have done with nicer teabags and boiling water...but apart from that, a real hidden gem in a quiet location. Would not hesitate to return if we visited the Amalfi again.

We stayed here one night because of series of travel delay issues, and it ended being one of the best discoveries of our trip. The room was spotless, roomy, and nicely appointed. The location is up a long hill from the bus stop, but provides a good way to walk off dinner.

The best part of this hotel is the family who owns and runs it. They are genuinely sweet and helpful. We enjoyed visiting with three generations of the family, who all made us feel right at home. They will drop you off anywhere in town in their car, and they went out of their way to make us welcome, help us out with our travel needs, and teach us some Itallian.

Many of the rooms have beautiful sea views, and there is a rooftop terrace, complete with the requisite lemon trees in pots. There is a grocery store at the bottom of the road, and a handful of restaurants within walking distance. You can walk somewhere for dinner, and have Antonio pick you up in the car and bring you back to the hotel.

This is a nice, homey hotel -- a good place to get a taste of Italian life -- as overseen by Mariana, Antonio, and Momma Connie. We hated to leave Praiano -- what a jewel! We will definitely recommend it to friends and plan on returning there ourselves.

Just returned from a long weekend in Praiano and stayed at the Holiday Hotel.
Even before our trip Marianna who dealt with our booking was very helpfull and courteous to the 'Volcano' situation. We managed to fly in with no problem and found the hotel with ease.....mind that Coastal road though, its an eye opener....bit like Wacky Races! Concentration is a must!
Our room was lovely and spacious, very clean and comfortable with amazing views over the coast. And the sparkling stars on the ceiling at night time where sweet (no i didnt have to much vino) Unfortuanately for us the weather wasnt so great on the Sat/Sun but Marianna and her crew where very helpfull with calling about boat trips and cancellations etc. The pastries at breakfast where amazing and the staff are very attentive to detail.
I totally recommend a daytrip to Positano as is stunning! Amalfi is lovely too.
We found a lovely restuarant called Historia il Pino in Praiaino outskirts, which the hotel took us too and collected us from free of charge in their shuttle car.
There is parking at the hotel too, so easy to leave a hire car safetly tucked out of the way.
I would totally recommend this hotel to anyone, with or without kids....10/10!

My husband and I recently had the good fortune to stay at the Praiano Holiday Hotel for a week. The hotel is very clean, spacious and quiet and the views over the sea from every room, and the dining areas, are stunning. But without doubt the most outstanding feature of this family-run hotel are the friendly family owners and their service. Every need is pre-empted from reception right through to house-keeping. On one occasion we just missed the bus that goes by the hotel - one of the staff immediately bundled us into his car and we managed to chase the bus and board it at its next stop! We've stayed at 5 star hotels in the past but the service and friendliness at this hotel is the best we've ever encountered. The fack that there's free parking right at the door is an added bonus. Highly recommended!
