We enjoy our stay in this cozy hotel. The room is really clean and bathroom is new with great shower. We stayed in room 24 with the view of the sea and positano town. The location is good as it's in the center with all shops, and bus stop next door. The hotel is next to the street, but this...

Very nice hotel to stay, good food and the location is perfect, very close to the beach and main restaurants. There's a parking lot across the street so it is perfect if you are driving. The room was comfy and clean and the Staff was helpful and kind.

My wife and I stayed at Hotel La Bougainville from October 4-8, 2016, on our honeymoon and agree: Positano was our favorite destination and Hotel La Bougainville was the best little hotel during our two week trip. Getting There: We took a bus from Sorrento to Positano and found it to be an easy and reliable trip down (about 45...

This review is long overdue.. i stayed here a year ago almost and fell in love with the beautiful little hotel..

GETTING THERE Catch the Sita bus from Sorrento Train station that has AMALFI on it. Cost $1.80 per ticket (Oct 2016). Do NOT get off when they say the first 'Positano' stop. We made this mistake and had to then catch the internal Positano bus (which does loops down around Positano) and had to pay for another ticket. Instead stay...

We stayed here for 2 nights and it was great. The staff make you feel so welcome which is such a lovely touch. The breakfast was good, and the room was nice too. The location of this hotel is absolutely perfect for visiting as you're just off the main walkway to the seafront. There's a parking place just opposite as...

We spent 5 nights here. It is a good walking distance to the beach. Takes about 5-10 mins. The hotel itself is definitely outdated but it worked. We paid a decent price compared to other hotels. The staff was very pleasant and helpful. Walking distance to lots of shops and restaurants. There is a bus stop right outside at the...

It's right on one of the main roads down as close to the beach as you can get by car. Also located very close to the walking path that takes you the rest of the way to the beach. The hotel staff was also very nice and helpful.

The hotel was very nice and reasonably priced. Great location, close to everything. The city view was nice, but don't expect to see the beach well from here. Service was excellent, gave us restaurant recommendations and allowed us a late check out. Breakfast was included but did not have a lot of variety.
