Like everything in Positano- you have to work for this view with steps- but also like everything else- it is SO worth it! The property is stunning and the balcony views will make you want to sit on your patio all day and never leave. If you do want to leave however, you are a short walk down the stairs to the beach- or take the tunnel behind the fancy rstaraunt on your way down to the main town square (we only found this shortcut at the end). Either way you will love your stay here- we will be back!

The balcony view was spectacular and the service was outstanding. Simone really took the time to help us out and feel welcome. She also provided a lot of information and recommendation. The hotel is tucked away and tricky to find. The porters did a great job of helping us out with the luggage from the Ferry area since the steps are super intense and vast. The hotel rooms are slightly outdated but the location is pretty good.

This hotel is more beautiful than the pictures. The property is very clean and well kept and the rooms are very clean. The view from the room balcony was absolutely breathtaking. Pictures cannot do it justice. It literally took our breath away seeing the view. The location is great. It’s not too far from a more private beach and not too far from the top so everything was easily accessible considering the amount of stairs there are. On top of it all, everyone at the hotel was so friendly and welcoming. The gentleman explained everything to us in so much detail and even helped us with many tips for Path of the Gods trail. Their warm and welcoming demeanor was the icing on top. I can’t imagine staying anywhere else in Positano!

Wonderful hotel, must be OK with LOTS of stairs
Overall, stay at Dimora was very pleasant. Rooms are outdated but clean, views are incredible, breakfast is light but included. And staff was wonderful. One thing the hotel should advise more clearly: you HAVE to use porter service from port if you're coming in on ferry. Don't let the "8 minute" walk on Google maps fool you. This doesn't consider the 500 stair steps (not an exaggeration) and verticality of Positano. It was more like 45 minutes with luggage. But 100% recommend this hotel. General note about Positano, you have to be OK with stairs. If the average stair case for one floor is 15-20 steps, you can do the math: 150 steps from street entrance to hotel that cannot be avoided. ~250 steps from sea level at port and 1.4 mile walk to get to hotel. ~200 steps from the hotel down to the beach This is true for anywhere you stay in Positano. But it is a shock. Know this going into it and plan accordingly: porters, sneakers, healthy knees.

This property was absolutely beautiful and our room was amazing! I can’t even describe the views!! What made our experience that much better was the staff. The older gentleman there was so sweet and you can tell he really loves what he does and he takes the time to make your stay that much better. He even made our drinks extra special late at night when we could have just drank them out of the bottle from the lobby fridge. We also had really nice conversations with him and the breakfast every morning was so good and complimentary!
