Great views, awesome owner, bit strange and humblePosted May 2, 2017
Views are great, close to a secondary beach, the room is basic to say the least, had some strange experiences here but the owner of this B&B is awesome. Love Gippy.

We had a beautiful time at Venus Inn. It is in close proximity to restaurants, shops, the beach and marina. Great value. Positano is breathtaking. Giuseppe greeted us and was available to us at any time throughtout our stay. When I return to Positano I will definitely stay here again :):)

Let Gippy be your guide to Positano!Posted May 5, 2016
My boyfriend and I stayed at Venus B&B for 4 nights and really enjoyed our stay. Our host Gippy was so hospitable and provided us with maps and tips on where to go. The location of this B&B was ideal because it gave out to the most splendid view of Positano. We truly enjoyed our stay there because Gippy made us feel so welcome. Plus he makes a delicious cappucino :)

Fantastic Location, View and ValuePosted Nov 5, 2015 on Hotels
We enjoyed our stay in this excellent location for Positano. Our host Gippy is fantastic and has great recommendations for sightseeing and dining not only in Postiano but along the Amalfi Coast. The rooms are simple and very nice. We found the rooms very clean as well as the shower. We wanted a room with a view, and we got a fantastic view, with a terrace for a great value. We did have breakfast at an additional $4euros per person, and we thought it was perfect. Fresh fruit and croissants, jam and juice and delicious coffee made fresh, plus we could walk out on our terrace and enjoy the morning while having breakfast. We loved Positano and the Venus Inn B & B!

Stay at the Venus Inn!!Posted Oct 15, 2015 on Hotels
The B&B is well located, giving great views of the coast and of Positano. Gippy was incredibly friendly and helpful, he is a very genuine person and gave us good tips during our stay - we wouldn't hesitate to return. He definitely goes above and beyond and really added to our great Amalfi experience!

Great cheap and cheerful option in PositanoPosted Oct 2, 2015
We stayed in room 4 for four nights recently and had a great time. The rooms, while basic, are spacious and comfortable. The breakfast is lovely (coffee, fresh fruit from Gippys garden and croissants with spreads) and served on the terrace overlooking the fornillo valley and sea. Gippy is very helpful, seems to speak every language imaginable and is full of great advice so make sure you share your plans with him over breakfast and he'll point you in the right direction. The location is also pretty good, 400 steps down to fornillo beach or about 15 mins walk down the road to the main beach/port. A couple of tips - Positano is in a valley and sound (like a neighbours dog barking at night) carries far and wide so take earplugs if you are a light sleeper. Also don't leave food in your room as you are likely to find it covered in ants when your return.

Excellent, good value B&BPosted Sep 28, 2015
Pros: Location and terrace with great view over bay.
Location: Great location, very close to many good restaurants, shops and beach.
Venus B&B Positano is in a great location - 20 minute stroll from beach/water taxis/shops/restaurants. Room large and comfortable, good shower. Fantastic view from terrace where breakfast was served. The best part of the Venus B&B is the owner Gippy - a wonderful host who can't do enough for guests. He made us extremely welcome. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend Venus and will certainly return.

Fantastic price in a convenient locationPosted Sep 8, 2015 on Hotels
Very easy to get to and on the local Positano bus line. Gippy was an absolute pleasure and made sure we had all the information we needed each morning. Set on the side of town, B&B Venus had gorgeous views of the water. Breakfast was served every morning with made-to-order cappuccinos and espressos. Gippy gave us plenty of recommendations for things to see/do as well as restaurants to try (none disappointed). The room was very quiet and was cleaned every day. This was a short 10-15 minute walk from the main cathedral and we welcomed the beautiful stroll. Also, Fornillo beach was 10 minutes down steps and was so convenient. This was by far our favorite beach and had all the amenities of the main beach without the crowd (5-6 beach bars with renting loungers). I would 100% recommend this B&B to anyone who stays in Positano!!

Charming, great owner, spectacular view, a bargainPosted Apr 14, 2015 on Hotels
The Venus Inn in Positano is a marvelous choice. The owner – Gippy – is a great guy, and super-helpful. The three rooms are large, charming and very pretty without being fancy. Each has its own balcony looking directly out on the Positano coastline,an extraordinary setting and view. Positano is built up a mountain. The B & B is halfway up. You can walk or take a cheap bus, but it is much better to stay there than at the congested and touristy beach and plaza area. At the top of Positano, Gippy’s mother’s house has a single rental room with access to a large garden/patio and great view and, above, a large three-room apartment. We chose to stay in that room although it was bit smaller and simpler than the B & B rooms. It's a locals area with a great trattoria (Cera una volta) a few hundreds yards away, with better food and service than restaurants by the beach, at much less cost. Grocery and fruit stores and an excellent coffee bar are close. Gippy’s mother, Nina, was in the tourist industry and is a wonderful, outgoing lady with lots of helpful tips for travelers. Even if you stay a few days, you will feel like you are leaving good friends. Wifi is available in the public areas and the balconies of both properties, but not in the rooms themselves. Don’t rent a car. The roads are extremely narrow and difficult and parking is expensive. Bus service is excellent and easy. The hike from Positano to Nocelle is particularly spectacular.
