Hotel/resort with spectacular views of hills/seaPosted Oct 9, 2014
Pros: Tastfully decorated, and spectacular views from the balcony.
Cons: They are doing pretty good for a small, boutique hotel
Location: Beach is a bus ride away. The bus station is very close by. There are boutiques close to the beach. Plenty of excellent restaurants
We stayed for 6 nights. Before I arrived, I wrote numerous times to the hotel asking questions about anything and everything about the hotel and Positano and its vicinity. Diego replied promptly every time and answered everything to my utmost satisfaction. When we were there, the staff couldn't be more helpful, from arranging private car service for sightseeing to making excellent restaurant recommendations and reservations. The standard room I booked was comfortable, a bit smaller than I thought from seeing the pictures on Expedia. It was cute and clean with beautiful , tasteful decor and the view from the balcony overlooking the hills and sea were spectacular. One thing that spoiled my otherwise excellent experience was they charged me 30 euros for the mini bar which we never consumed on our last night there. We had to leave at 4:00 am so we settled the final bill the night before.. After I came home, I saw a charge on my credit card. I made the mistake of NOT asking them to check the mini bar before I settled the bill with them. If it weren't for this incident, I would give them my highest rating.

Nice rooms, but too far out of townPosted Aug 17, 2014
Small hotel with nice rooms. Felt restricted to your rooms as no real relaxing space elsewhere. You have to rely on the hotel's shuttle to get into the town and the shuttle is not reliable. Twice we were left waiting for over an hour. Alternatively, you can walk!? Ok on the way down, but it's a pig walking backup all the steps. You can get a bus, which is the cheapest option or get a taxi. But as this is a daily routine as the hotel has little to offer ie no pool, bar, lounge.....the town/beach is a must and therefore can work out expensive or a real faf!!

Spectacular viewPosted Jul 29, 2014 on Hotels.com
Great service and very friendly staff, however considering how much we paid to stay at this hotel, it was extremely disappointing we had to pay 10 Euros per day (per device) to access internet. Secondly, the "free breakfast" was a bit misleading considering its the same thing; croissants daily and drinks mainly.

worst roomPosted Jun 20, 2014 on Hotels.com
Whether it was because I was a single traveller or just bad luck, I got the worst room of the hotel. #103. I'm sure the room beside me was no better but anything on the lower floor had to endure the hammering and poundig from the business below. The lower rooms had a broken view of the city because of the street and the building to the left, and the lower rooms were joined to the outside dining and hottub area separated by sparse shrubs which didn't help for vision or sound. I imagine the top suites are very nice but I can only review the one I was in, unfortunately not good. If you want to walk from this hotel be prepared to climb up and down more than 1000 steps, great workout... lol

Old hotel; far from beach; rude staffPosted Jun 16, 2014 on Hotels.com
The rooms are very old. The bedding is dingy and gross.

A lot of problemsPosted Jun 9, 2014 on Hotels.com
I felt that Palazzo Marzoli was overpriced and untrustworthy. First of all, even though Hotels.com guaranteed I would not be charged until my stay, I received a charge on my credit card more than a week before my stay and for one more night than I was actually staying. I tried to resolve this with the woman at the hotel, but she said it was Expedia, not the hotel that charged us, which was just confusing. My credit card company says the charge came from the hotel. In addition, she originally told us the parking charge was 30 euros per day and then raised it to 45 euros when we checked out. The hotel is attractive but overlooks a busy street and work was being performed. The only real plus goes to Aldo, who works there. He was very helpful and lovely and refused our money when he helped change our tire. I cannot, however, recommend Palazzo Marzoli (or reserving through hotels.com) to anyone.

The Best In Italy!Posted Oct 21, 2013 on Hotels.com
We stayed in a lot of places in Italy, but Positano was our favorite. We would love to go Back. The people at Palazzo Marzoli were warm, provided great customer service and were very attentive. We lived it there. Highly recommended.
