Lovely place, lovely people.

The MiniHotel is located a bit off the beaten track in the mountains near Maiori (about a 30 minute walk to the town).
The staff in the hotel (more like a B&B though) were very friendly, helpful and 2 of them spoke good English.
The room was big, comfortable bed, very nice shower and bathroom. There was air-conditioning but I felt it wasn't the best (even though it looked like a modern model) even when on full blast the room felt a big muggy. This may have been due to me not using it properly though!
The breakfast was fantastic! Coffee of your choice, fresh bread and choice of jams, fresh croissant and a chocolate brownie/ other treat.
There are negatives to the location. If you're renting a car/ bike, it probably isn't an issue, but I found the walk, while initially enjoyable as it's beautiful surroundings, became a bit of a pain as it can be quite dangerous (there's no proper footpath). However, there are also positives in that the surroundings are some of the most beautiful scenery I have ever seen. I spent hours just walking and wandering around. Breathtaking. In my opinion, the positives outweigh the negatives.
There is a surcharge of 2euro per day for wifi use in rooms. I found this a bit annoying (as presumably it doesn't cost them any extra) but to be fair it does say so on the website, so can't really complain.
Overall, beautiful area, lovely, comfortable rooms, very friendly owners and a great breakfast, but beware it's not that close to the town.
