Away from the crushPosted Nov 21, 2013
A nice place to say in a smaller town along the Amalfi coast. Excellent breakfast with eggs--a rarity in our experience in Italy. Breakfast room and accommodations have fantastic views of the coast. Free parking is a definite plus as is staff member Gennaro who provided transportation to trail head for hiking, and lots of important advice on where to go and eat. Rooms are clean, attractive, and have balconies, but could use much more sound insulation. Overall an ok break from the insanity of driving the Amalfi.

Good hotel well located on Amalfi Coast.Posted Nov 1, 2013
Pros: Views from the room were wonderful. Staff very friendly and only too pleased to help. Free parking was a bonus.
Cons: Breakfast was a bit basic, but having said that it was perfectly edible. TV and SKY did not seem to work well, but we didn't miss it.
Location: Hotel was half way up the hill, but Praiano was accessible on foot. Lots of places to visit by bus or car. Trip to Capri was excellent.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would stay there again if we went on another holiday to this area.

Great friendly hotel - difficult to faultPosted Oct 28, 2013
Pros: Service, location, food, quieter than average for Amalfi
Cons: Standard of Italian drivers on the Amalfi ! However, they can multitask well with adept use of mobiles and wild hand gestures whilst driving
We stayed for 4 nights and we'd looked at many good reviews before booking it. It still exceeded our expectations with such friendly service and helpful advice given. The location of any accommodation on the Amalfi means that sometimes even the adventurous will prefer to stay in their hotel to eat as travelling anywhere by car could mean struggling to park - we were not disappointed with the food and wine served in the evening, excellent quality and it was served quickly. We liked the relaxed yet efficient nature of the restaurant waiters. The pool is small but adequate and a good feature for a hotel like this as many we had looked at didn't have a pool. One feature of the hotel's location that was also a plus was that it was situated on a minor road off the main Amalfi coastal road and therefore wasn't plagued by heavy traffic noise - yet it is convenient to walk down to the main road, town of Praiano and beaches or other restaurants. That said it's a long walk up from the beaches - but we still enjoyed the hike ! Only small criticisms that we would make were the quality of the fruit juices for breakfast were poor and the fruit salad is straight from a tin - but the omelettes and other breakfast goodies adequately compensate for this. Thanks and keep up the excellent work and standards Consuelo

Fantastic Home away from Home in Praiano, ItalyPosted Oct 23, 2013
Pros: The amazing staff
Cons: A bit more thorough on the cleaning of the rooms.
Location: Praiano is a beautiful small town between Amulfi and Positano on the Italian Amulfi coast.
My wife and I booked at Hotel Margherita after reading a number of reviews on the net. The staff are unbelievably friendly and helpful. On arrival at the hotel, they sat down with us and explained not only the hotel facilities but also the activities in the surrounding areas and also advised the best ways to get there. They were always friendly and tried to accommodate all out requests. The hotel has a very old world charm and exudes a "home away from home" feel.

Loved it!Posted Sep 21, 2013
Pros: Customer Service was Superb! I will stay there again, as most people do. We spoke with 2 other guests who frequent this hotel every trip.
Cons: The fold away bed wasn't the most comfortable, but few fold away beds are, if any! The room was a large room for a hotel room in Europe. Impressed!
Location: Very quiet. If you want to be among busy streets and lots of people, this is not the TOWN for you.
It is the best service I've ever received. I have been fortunate enough to stay in fine hotels throughout America and have never had such excellent service as Hotel Margherita.

Excellent hotel in quiet PraianoPosted Sep 21, 2013
Pros: Location, quiet part of the coast but access to it all by the bus.
Booked a sea view room which was amazing. Hotel has a pool area and a great restaurant but the best thing about this hotel is the staff. Staff go above and beyond to make your stay worthwhile. Hotel has free transport to take you around the area and has a bus stop out the front of the hotel to take you into Positano. I liked this hotel because of the area, very quiet and not as touristy as Positano or Amalfi. The only fault would be that everyting has tiled follors so you can hear everyone walking around and our shower leaked, came back to our room one day and the bedroom was full of water in some areas, but it was quickly cleaned up.

Excellent value..Posted Sep 13, 2013
Location: Praiano is the hidden jewel of the Amalfi coast. Has a host of great local restaurants and far less touristy than Positano.
A lovely family run hotel with a wonderful views, and excellent facilities. Staff couldn't do enough to help and the rooms and facilities were great.

HOME AWAY FROM HOMEPosted Aug 26, 2013
Pros: We really loved the family environment . We felt like we were staying at a relative's home and not a hotel. I would like to go back and stay put.
Cons: Couldn't think of anything that I would need to change.
Location: The hotel is in a quiet area of Praiano, which is between Positano and Amalfi. Great location for all of the sites.
This was the most pleasant hotel experience we have ever had. Simply perfect. The family that owns and operates the hotel and all of their wonderful and helpful staff could not have been nicer. The hotel breakfast was great. The restaurant on the roof was such and amazing place to have dinner. We caught it with a full moon so it was just magnificent. All of our day excursions were organized with the hotel's help including bus tickets and ferry schedules, etc. The rooms were large with plenty of A/C if needed. We had a really nice balcony overlooking the sea.
