Fabulous hotel with view to die for

Posted Jul 10, 2014
Smeraldo means emerald! This hotel is a jewel and is more than anyone could expect. The superior balcony room with spa on balcony in unbelievable! View across the coast the positano is a scene to only be imagined! Love love loved it and sad to leave. The village of Praiano is quiet. A refuge compared to positano and amalfi. Do it! Just go! Will never forget!

Beautiful view of the Amalfi coast.

Pros: I couldn't have asked for a better view from our balcony, room 105. And the restaurant patio also has this view.
Cons: Better maintenance and it would have been nice to have a mini fridge.
Location: Near Positano and not far from Sorrento. Walk the streets and take in the beautiful surroundings.
Just outside Positano we found the hotel on a narrow road with not much road space to unload our luggage from the car. I had to move the car a couple of times so that tour buses could get by. We had to wait past check-in time for our rooms. Our room had a balcony with a Jacuzzi and a beautiful view of the coast. But the Jacuzzi didn't work, so I just used it as a tub. The couple we were travelling with didn't have as nice of a balcony or view. And the light in their bathroom shower didn't work and was never taken care of after we notified the hotel.

Lovely Views!

This hotel has great patios in the rooms with great views! The location in spectacular and the staff was friendly. I was originally looking for a hotel in Positano, but I'm glad I ended up in Praiano. Better local food and restaurants and not so much of the tourist trap Positano is. Great restaurants, great food, great service, and easy access toPositano, Amalfi, the beach, etc. had a great time and will definitely be back. Ciao

Priaino and hotel Smeraldo areTHE place to stay

Posted Oct 20, 2012
Pros: the sea view on the large balcony
Cons: cant think of any
Location: easy to reach on the sorrento - salerno bus route
I was intially cautious about staying in Priaino having no knowledge of the village however I was not disappointed by this or the hotel. The staff were verys friendly and helpful. Our room has a great big balcony with deck chairs and tables etc and the room and bathroom spacious. The meal we had in the hotel on the first night was excellent and great value. Breakfast was also very enjoyable and plenty to eat. this hotel is ideal to reach - there is a bus stop in Priaino just outside the hotel and easy to spot. The stop services both the Sita (sorrento-salerno) and the local bus doing a circuit from Positano to Priaino. From the hotel its easy to walk down into the village and further along down to the seafront restaurants. A great quiet place away from all the tourists in Amalfi. Will definately stay again and recommend it
