A Pearl in PositanoPosted Jun 23, 2015
Pros: Everything. But the thing that stood out was the staggering view that greeted us every time we threw back the curtains and opened the balcony doors.
Cons: There must be something, but for a characterful hotel experience at a reasonable price in Positano, I can't think of any.
Location: If Positano isn't one of the best seaside locations on the planet I don't know what is. Swimming, dining, people watching, visits to nearby villages.
While Palazzo Talamo is "only" rated at three stars, they don't make enough stars to give to this fabulous hotel. We are a couple in our late fifties occupying an ocean view room with one double bed and separate shower/bathroom. The views are to kill for, the cleanliness is perfect and the family staff always helpful. Yes, there are many stairs to climb (or walk up the gently grading road for an easier time of it), but this elevation gives the fabulous views. Palazzo Talamo looks to be about half way up the hill in Positano, so there are many other hotels with a greater climb. Drinks or a light snack on the balcony are a must as you soak up the extraordinary views on offer. Immediately outside the Hotel are two really good restaurants that offer great service and food as Positano's pulsating life flows by. The hotel staff are always helpful and ready with advice or to book an activity for you. Breakfast is good with a wide choice to suit different tastes. We really appreciated being able to sleep with the balcony doors open (this was mid-June), so that fresh air from the ocean kept us cool at night, combined with the apparent absence of any Mosquitos - wonderful! All the floors are tiled with local ceramic tiles and this not only looks colorful and attractive, but helps to keep the whole place cool and inviting when the outside heat ramps up.

Decent hotel with a great viewPosted Jun 20, 2015
Pros: Proximity to the shops and beach. Great view. Friendly staff.
Cons: Modern Door locks (no more skeleton keys). Insulation on the hallway walls to reduce the noise. Improve the Wifi and internet so it won't cut out.
Location: Walk down to the beach using the stairs behind the hotel. Go to the restaurant across the street for some great food and excellent service.
This hotel is a convenient distance from the beach. The staff were friendly and had good recommendations for food. The view from the hotel rooms was really nice. The hallways are noisy so anyone going to their room can be heard by everyone on that side of the elevators. The rooms are secured with skeleton keys, though are modern in all other ways. The room we stayed in on the 3rd floor was tight space-wise. For two people it was okay, but there wasn't room for our suitcases except on the floor. This is probably a common thing for Positano since all the buildings are built off the cliff-side and real-estate is at a premium. The wifi was frustrating. It would work for bursts, then not work for a while. This is mostly a problem if you trying to watch a video or use google maps to trace a route. Beyond that the hotel was nice. The staff were very informative. The breakfast included with our stay was decent.

Vista espetacular!Posted Sep 18, 2014 on Hotels
Bom hotel. O staff não chegou a ser rude, mas também não eram muito amigáveis. Frios para o estilo latino. A exceção era o Paolo, do turno da noite. Esse sim, era super simpático e cordial. A vista era simplesmente espetacular, e o café da manhã era bem servido. O check out é muito cedo, o que pode atrapalhar os planos de quem quer passar um último dia em Positano após sair do hotel. Mas avaliando os pros e contrad, recomendo o hotel. Voltaria a me hospedar nele se um dia estiver em Positano. Difícil chegar de transporte público (e de localizar). Mas isso se aplica a no mínimo 90% dos hoteis de Positano.

Superbe endroitPosted Aug 11, 2014 on Hotels
Nous avons passé cinq jours à cet hôtel à la fin de juillet 2014. Nous avons beaucoup aimé l'endroit. Service attentif, et en français. Seul bémol: le fait de devoir payer pour le déjeuner, qui n'est pas inclus. Nous aurions préféré qu"il soit inclus dans le prix de la chambre, quitte à ce qu'il soit un peu plus élevé. Néanmoins, cet endroit est chaudement recommandé.

Perfekt lägePosted Aug 11, 2014 on Hotels
Hotellet ligger väldigt bra till i Rom, promenadavstånd till Trastevere samt tex Pantheon. Rummen är väldigt fräscha men lite små, men det gjorde oss ingenting då man inte är så mycket på rummet när man besöker en storstad.
