“A gem in a jewel of a place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 June 2012

Read so many positive reviews and we were lucky enough to have a week here (booked through a tour company and just back.) We are able to endorse every positive review and are pleased to add our own. We were in Positano for a special occasion and the Royal Prisco Hotel certainly made it a memorable stay. Lovely room with sea view and balcony that is well worth having breakfast on. Nothing too much trouble and a great location.

After reading about bad experiences with bookings at this hotel, we were a little worried arriving to Positano. We arrived early and decided to go to the hotel to see if we could just leave our luggage there. It turned out that our room was already ready and Maria told us that they would upgrade us to a Royal Suite the next day. We said yes to the offer even though the first room we got was very nice with a balcony with great view of the city and the sea.
Both the rooms we stayed in was very clean and the service was excellent. We had breakfast served on the balcony - for Italy good choice of yoghurt, bread, fruit etc.
There are a lot of stairs/steps in Positano since it is a city hanging on the cliffs, but the location of Prisco was in our opinion an easy walk from the center/beach/restaurants. The bus was also nearby so all in all a great location for exploring Positano and the Amalfi coast.
You have to accept some traffic-noise, since the road passes right outside the hotel, but it didn't bother us - actually we woke up early one morning to a concert of bird-singing.
Maria and Michelangelo are very helpfull and we only have nice things to say about our stay.
If you like hiking we absolutely will recommend the "Path of the Gods" - take the bus to Nocelle and walk from there - fantastic views ... really an experience not to be missed.

Smaller hotel but beautifully appointed with amazing views! My husband and I stayed at Royal Prisco Hotel on our honeymoon from July 30-August 3 2010. The hotel was a bit hard to find as Positano's roads are windy and on a hill, but once we got there we were welcomed warmly and shown to our room.
Our room was very clean with beautiful antiques. The main attraction was the balcony however. We had 2 lounge chairs and a small bistro set. We spent most evenings out on our balcony sipping wine and enjoying the view out to the Mediterranean Sea. The village is beautiful day and night!
The only complaint I had was that the hotel was closer to the top of the hill so if you were all the way down at the beach, forget about trekking back to fetch something that was forgotten in the hotel room.

Room Tip: Smaller hotel but beautifully appointed with amazing views!

Beautifully decorated hotel. Kept to a high standard of cleanliness. Lovely helpful staff. Well located and within easy walking distance to restaurants and bus services. Comfortable room with balcony and sea view, very romantic at night when the town lights are on. Breakfast is very tasty and plentiful with plenty of choice. Thank you Maria and Michelangelo for making our first stay in Positano very special.

We recently stayed at this small family run Hotel and Michelangelo and Maria made us very welcome.Our room was spacious, clean and very comfortable. A great location with lovely views and very peaceful despite being in the middle of Positano a truly beautiful town.
Can't wait to go back.
