We had the warmest, friendliest welcome to this hotel when we stepped in, and it extended for the rest of our stay! We had a wonderful view of Positano from our balcony, and each evening enjoyed sitting and looking at the view as the clouds caught the sunset (the sun was behind us, but the cast it set on the view was amazing). The dining, both at breakfast and dinner were top notch! Highly recommend this hotel on your visit to the Amalfi Coast!

This hotel, perfectly situated a little ways from the crowd with magnificent views and an easy stroll down to the heart of town, is a 5-star hotel in terms of service, hospitality, food and amenities. Every single person was attentive to our every need, kind and personable, and always going above and beyond to make our stay perfect. And indeed, it was. I could mention Margherita, Lilliana, Fabrizio etc...too many to name as every single one was exceptional. Do not miss this place if you are considering other similarly priced hotels. We can't wait to return!!

Hotel Poseidon goes above and beyond when it comes to service. Margherita, in particular, was super kind and helpful in helping me book rooms especially with last minute changes in plans. She was endlessly patient and easygoing. The entire staff went out of their way to make us feel incredibly welcomed. Everyone seemed very happy to be there and proud to work at the hotel. It’s a beautiful hotel, much bigger than it looks from the outside. The views from the rooms are stunning. The restaurant terrace is beautiful and the food was really delicious at the restaurant. Whenever I ordered anything to the room it came extremely quickly. Could not recommend this place more. Thank you so much for the most perfect stay.

Hotel Poseidon was fantastic. The view speaks for itself. The location was perfect, high enough for a great view but not too high where you curse for 30 minutes walking up from the beach. The food was great and the service was fantastic. Breakfast staff were so refined and I forget her name, but the maitre di, she was always there and such a great host. The hotel is certainly like stepping into a time machine, but very well maintained. Can't wait to return one day!

This is a really good 4 star hotel, even if almost €800/night suit is 5 star priced. I guess this is what €800 gets you in Positano. We had a great view, but the room was a bit shabby. It’s an old place but still, you can see the place is worn out. Services was great, very friendly staff, especially “pool boy”. The pool is not very glamorous but great to have it. I would recommend this hotel, but be sure to expect less and be surprised by lovely staff. Restaurant in the hotel is ok, nothing extra. They need to work on the presentation. I loved parmegiano melanzane.
