My father thought the family was friendly and liked the historical aspect of the building. The rest of us found little to enjoy at this B&B. No A/C, 30+ yr old twin beds put together on cot stand for double bed, cold breakfast only, hard to find, no parking, noisy farm animals from 5am to midnight, teenage daughter left in charge of office during day, no shower/bath only, cleaning by maid only some days. I would not stay here again or recommend it at all.
Location was excellent, walking distance to the beach, 5 minutes from railway station, nice quiet rooms (ours #2 was very spacious), lovely terrace for breakfast (we had dinner there as well), quite large selection at breakfast (even cheese and salami), the staff was very friendly, there was cumputer you could use in the lobby (although the printer didn't work), we could use the fridge in the kitchen The coffee at breakfast was terrbile, our air conditioning got turned off so that we couldn't get it back on by ourselves a couple of times (once it was off all night long = HOT), the bathroom leaked water into the room when taking a long shower (I bet there is water damage under the floor)
Nothing When we arrived it was very difficult for us to find it. We spent more than 2 hours looking for it and when we asked people for directions no one knew about it. When we finally found it, we found out that this is a house with no lift and they gave us a room on the 3rd floor, with no lift and we had to pass through loads of toys and barbie doll houses which were laying all over the place. We then decided not to stay at the hotel and asked them to cancel the booking. Maria grazia, the owner gave us a room which was not the one we booked and when I asked her why she told us that alll the other rooms are full. However when I spoke to the receptionist, she told us that we were the only people there and therefore it was not true that the room we booked was full this was a very bad experience and in fact we then had to look for another hotel where to stay. The photos on the website do not match the reality. This was our worst experience when travelling abroad.
Our favourite hotel in the region. Wonderful room in an old villa, perfect service (like free internet access, very helpful staff) very nice rooms. We would recommend it immediately! The quality of the bed (mattress) could have been better. Finding a nice restaurant was not so easy.
It was a very relaxing hotel and fabulous staff
The rooms and the views and service The breakfast is always the same, many cakes and sweets which are not freshly prepared but prepaked.
Best thing about Relais Francesca was closeness to the train station and parking - Breakkfast was a bit limiting
it was small and relaxed not like a big hotel the staff were very helpful and friendly would reccomend to stay
Very nice accommodation, this place was perfect for us, easy to go there by train, very good breakfast. The beach at Piano was a great surprise!
A very good position to train,and to bus,a good brecfast
The location was good, near a well connected train station
The house is well appointed for being a B&B. The staff is very kind and the house gives very good value for money. The location is not central but it is close to the local railway (circumvesuviana). It is a good place for relaxing as it is quiet. The breakfast is not as huge as what we are used to in Central-Europe, however in Italian standards it is totally OK. The hot chocolate at the breakfast was not so good.
Really nice place to stay, helpful and charming staff, the breakfast was delicious, the bedrooms are clean and tidy. Location is perfect (it is not 700 metres from train station :) but it is great location without a lot of tourists)
The situation was very calm and good with a garden with parking place. Near to the railway station and near to the center of Piano. Very friendly staff.
Kind staff, nice breakfast, room no. 1 is big with a big bathroom, free parking area, calm neighbourhood, bus stop close to the hotel, nice view. Only one minor thing: Though having a big bathroom, the shower box is very small, with no place to put soap or shampoo.
The staff was extremely helpful in every way possible. Great location about a 15 to 20 minute walk to Sorrento's Square and in a very quiet location. First night realized there was a huge ant problem but staff was more than helpful and we found a way to virtually eliminate all of the little critters. Otherwise no complaints.
very friendly and helpful staff free internet close to the beach and bus stop breakfast ants view
Simplicity and staff positive attitude. Great local restaurants and views of bay. no
Friendly staff, excellent information of activities in the area, on a good bus root, great breakfasts, views of Bay of Naples and vesuvius, short walk from Sorrento, proximity to three excellent restaurants and bar. Truely an excellent hotel There is nothing bad about Hotel Porto Salvo
Everything about Villa Yiara was excellent. If I had to choose one thing, it would be the people. Hotel employeee were lovely and so helpful, and so were the other support staff ladies. Breakfast was outstanding & more than we could eat Not really. A few wall hooks or a chair in the bathroom would have been helpful to put clothes on but this was not a serious problem.
Hotel staff were so helpful and friendly. Hotel was very well located with quite nice rooms. Recommend without a doubt.
Good view A lot of steps.
The location, rooms, cleanliness and staff were excellent.
placement and service the room was small
Secluded with a beautiful view of the town, very romantic
Almost everything: room is beautiful, clean and comfortable, balcony view is stunning, location could hardly be better, etc. Quite expensive but reasonable for Positano and really worth the money Breakfast could be improved - not that it's bad, but one would expect more variety for the price.
It is a perfect hotel for vacation!
Location - Staff - In room breakfast No elevator
Excellent location and very helpful and courteous staff. This was a great place to relax at the end of our 6 week European Trip. Althogh perfectly adequate some more choices for breakfast would be an improvement suggestion.
welcoming staff could not have been more freindly, very well maintained throughout
The wonderful views from the room/balcony, the staff, the great breakfast!! No
The balcony with the gorgeous view Breakfast was not great. Orange juice was bottled not fresh. Bread looked packaged. Cappucinos were not great.
I loved this b&B. It was just the right size (about 10 rooms) and our room was gorgeous. It was fabulously clean and had a wonderfully big bathroom with great water pressure in the shower (something we had trouble finding in Italy). The best part was the amazing balcony we had on our room. N/A
the staff were great - even kicking in with a loan of a personal phone charger when I'd forgotten mine; the bathroom was huge and it was great to have a bathtub to soak in! the beds have foam mattresses; having said that, I still slept like a lamb
homely feel, wonderful boutique hotel. views were breathtaking, day staff were great (nonna clearly runs the show and keeps a close eye on everything ... no english but her character shone thru). I arrived soaked from a downpour in capri and lovely blonde @ front desk went out of her way to sort my gear and track down the largest iron in the world. restaurant across the street is terrific. yes there are a million steps up to the palazzo but you can take the easy route = cruisey walk up viale pasitea and the views are worth every step.
getting to the hotel- no transport service offered by hotel staff
The room was clean, comfortable and the balcony was wonderful.The staff were all nice, friendly and helpful. Breakfast was good with many choices in a lovely, sunny room. I would recommend this hotel to anyone who is going to Positano.
location view, and price
The view was fantastic and a pleasant walk from the centre
Seeview Internet access via WLAN was not available in room.
Ermilia was really nice, the service and the room standard was brilliant. Breakfast consisted of some lovely pastries yum yum. The views were fantastic, the only thing I would say is get a car as the buses around thia area are a bit erratic, ie. they seem to go into Piano town but don't seem to come back up for hours. The apartment was 7km away from Sorrento and 7km away from Positano, another bit of advice best taking the bus up to there as the road is horendious (mountain drop on the right of you!) but between 9-10.30 ish as the buses after that get a bit erratic and also are packed full of people, coming back the bus runs hourly. Make sure you take the number booking.com give you as she is not always there, its also outside the door.
Hotel has a big terrace to get breakfast or just sit there on the fresh air. Owner was very nice and friendly but she doesn't speak English, just few words... Air conditioning in the room. we did not use it as we have little children... It's right on the intersection. Our room was very, very small, and there were only roof windows that we could not open. Maybe other rooms are bigger. This one for my wife and our little boy was really quite small...
The owner was very friendly, the bathroom was very big, very central for the whole peninsula, an hour from Naples, Vesuvius, Pompei and only minutes from the Amalfi coast - which I personally feel is very overrated. The breakfast left a lot to be desired! De-luxe is an overstatement. Very loud - inside and out.
Breakfast was delicious! I recommend the fresh peach juice! Staff very helpful and friendly. Easy to get to from Sita bus from Sorrento. Bathrooms very clean. Balcony/terrace was absolutely beautiful. Will probably return on my next trip. Lots of steps to the beach. Not bad going down but definitely not fun going back up after a few glasses of wine!
the host was very helpful, the room and view was great.
staff were very friendly, Felix did everything to accomodate us.Room was very comfortable.
Very nice B & B. Very welcoming manager. Was made to feel very welcome and manager could not do enough to please us. Comfortable accomodation. Close to Positano. No
Scenery A bit expensive - particularly the extras - e.g. optional evening meal, drinks from fridge
Lovely views, beach access, helpful staff, clean wish it was alittle closer to town center
Room was very clean & tidy It's just a B&B...website says its a hotel with bar & restaurant...it has neither.....nice quiet location but nothing else....we were very very disappointed with what we found compared to the hotels website
The view from the room was great and the unit was very clean, being serviced daily. The breakfast was good and staff friendly. It was a 15min walk to Positano but a bus stop was not far. On some bus services tickets could not be purchased from the driver. We had an evening meal at the hotel and it was not good value. There was no hotel compendium in the room so one had to ask staff for information.
the view too far to work to Positano
