Where to Stay in Positano

I get A LOT of messages from people asking me where to stay in Positano. Usually they don't give me any idea of their budget or preferences so it is really hard to help, not to mention very time consuming.

So I have sat down and put together some lists of places to stay in Positano depending on budget, preferences and location:


So let's start with the cheapest and the most expensive. Positano has got 1 hostel,

  Hostel Brikette.

And Positano also has 3 5-star hotels:

  Le Sirenuse

Villa Tre Ville 

 Il San Pietro di Positano

In between the cheapest and most expensive places to stay there is a huge choice of B&B's, villas, hotels, apartments and boutique hotels and I probably don't know them all so feel free to leave a comment if you want to add to any list.

If you want to rent a villa or apartment you're best off going to Summer in Italy.

If you want a cheaper room or apartment like Casa Stella go to Airbnb.

Hotels with swimming pools in Positano.

Starting with the closest to the main beach and working further away:

Covo dei Saraceni

Ok, now let's start at the top of the mountain and work our way down towards the beach. Positano has two little suburbs above the main town, Montepertuso and Nocelle. There aren't any hotels but there are a quite a few B&B's and apartments. It is peaceful and quieter than the main town with breathtaking views and great access for hiking trails.
