Hotel Margherita
Ranked #2 of 20 Hotels in Praiano
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 6 January 2012

I want to start my review by explaining that we moved to this hotel, because the hotel that we were staying in previously could not accommodate us for an extra night's stay. Hopefully this will put into context what I am going to say.

We were given a very warm welcome upon arrival and could not fault the friendliness and attentiveness of the owners. However, hospitality aside, our preference is towards modern hotels and whilst comfortable, we found the decor too dated. We found some of the public areas and our room to be tired looking and the swimming pool was not as clean as it should have been. We found the selection at breakfast limited and the service slow, once our orders were finally taken.

Bearing in mind though that this a 3 star hotel, we were not expecting to be in the lap of luxury and I think Hotel Margherita would be much more suited to a family, or a couple who just wanted to use it as a base, as opposed to a young couple like ourselves.

Dear Sir,
as we are accustomed to accept his criticism and try to get ideas.
We can not understand how it can be defined as "dated" a hotel completely renovated over the past 3 years.
We believe that your young age has brought to the exchange of hand-painted furniture in the Florentine style with old furniture.
We hope that you still had a pleasant holiday.

We had the pleasure of staying at the Hotel Margherita last month and absolutely LOVED this hotel! The rooms are comfortable, clean and have amazing views. Suela, Andrea and their staff went out of their way to take care of all our needs. They drove us to and from the bus stop and even picked us up from the beach so we wouldn't have to walk up the hill in the rain! We had been traveling for a couple weeks before arriving, and they even did our laundry for us! The breakfasts were great and the dinners were so good that we ate at M'amas 6 of the 7 nights were were in Praiano! We can't wait to return!

We had such a wonderful stay in Praiano and enjoyed it even more due to this wonderful little hotel - with the most spectaculor views - glorious sunrises and dining under the stars in the rooftop restaurant where we viewed spectacular fireworks. The staff was so accomodating and welcoming. Their breakfasts were terrific and 50/50 Italian and American style food. The rooms are comfortable and beautiful - we could not take our eyes away from the views. They were available to drive us to and from the beach and the bus picked you up in front of the hotel. I loved hearing the roosters in the morning and we are eagerly waiting to return. Thank you for the most memorable vacation!!!!!

I feel so guilty that I had not yet written of our lovely stay at the Hotel Margherita in September, but having read all the other letters, I find I have little to add. The rooms are lovely and spotlessly clean, the balconies offer beautiful views, for an afternoon spot of wine and cheese (and a spot to dry your bathing suit, if needed), Suela and Andrea are perfect hosts with a long list of suggestions for touring and dining (plus the magnificant rooftop restaurant which makes going out unnecessary!)... I could go on and on, about the kindness shown when our companion could not walk up the hill from the beach, so they drove down to pick us up, about doing laundry for their guests and leaving items neatly folded on the bed, about just being generous with their time and attention.
There are multiple hotels and pensiones and inns in and around Praiano, and I'm sure many of them are wonderful, too, but I just don't know how you could do better than the Hotel Margherita.

Room Tip: Room 29 has a jacuzzi bath in a separate room, as well as a nice-sized balcony. Room 16 has a balcon...

We recently had the pleasure of staying 5 nights with Suela and Andrea at the Hotel Margherita. We found Suela, Andrea, and their staff to be very friendly and accommodating. They offer free shuttle service to town and the beach. No hassles when staying here! there is a small pool and deck which is a very relaxing place to spend an afternoon. The resturant, M'amas serves very good homemade Italian food. There is indoor and outdoor dining. We loved our 5 nights here at Hotel Margherita...away from the crowds of other towns alongthe coast, but in a great position to tour the coast. I would go back ..and I hope to do that some day! We had 4 in a room...they call it the family room and it was great...huge with a small balcony...loved it!

My Husband and I stayed at the Hotel Margherita for 9 nights on our honeymoon. Location of the hotel was good. really quick walk to the town center and main bus-stop area. Yes, other reviewers are right, the Orange bus stops directly in front of the hotel and will take you to Positano. However, the Sita (Blue) bus has a much better schedule (read; more frequent stops) so we walked to that one everyday.

The owners treat you like family. We ran into them in town a couple of times and they offered to drive us back in their family vehicle with their adorable children. so sweet.

The rooms are charming. With arched ceilings, beautiful balcony's (wonderful views), and super cleanliness we couldn't ask for more.

We ate at the hotel twice, while the food is good, it's not the best meal we had on our trip. The service is friendly and the view from the roof deck beautiful. We heard that they fire-up the wood oven for pizzas on Fridays, but the one Friday we were there was rainy so they didn't have outdoor service.
