Firstly, Positano is the town along the Amalfi Coast that everyone thinks of when you say, “the Amalfi Coast.” As a result, Positano has earned that stigma for good reason. For example, it has an expansive beach, lots of activities, cool restaurants and lots of things to do. These features all lead up to why it is arguably the most popular town on the Amalfi Coast. Here are the best hotels in Positano!

What Makes Positano So Special?
However, that popularity comes with a price. A B&B could easily run you $300+ per night so it is up to you. Therefore stay in a popular destination like Positano or Capri where all the action is or scroll down to Maiori and pay half the price with half the people.
Why I love Positano:
- Positano has a great beach and views due to it being on a mountainside
- Restaurants along the beach have tons of outdoor seating for lunch or dinner which is ideal for a beach vacation.
- The town is clean and well kept making it delightful to walk around.
- You’ll likely run into lots of fun people that speak English.

Best Hotels in Positano
Here are what we believe to be the best hotel, B&B, and villa choices for your stay in Positano in 2023. Our recommendations are full of great views, stunning pools, and more.
Le Sirenuse Positano
€€€€+ | 5 Star | One of the premier hotels on Earth | Pool
Le Sirenuse is one of the world’s greatest hotels since it is located in the most desirable town (Positano), of arguably the world’s most desirable coastlines (the Amalfi Coast), and in the perfect vantage point. Definitely comes with a price tag!
€€€ | B&B | Pool | Great Views
Although I have not visited this property in person, I have been sending people here for about a decade and everyone has been more than happy with the stay. Yes, you’ll get a leg workout but most people say it is worth it!
Hotel Eden Roc
€€€€ | 4 Star | Great Views, Comfortable and Beautiful
My wife & I stayed here a few years ago with our first daughter. Our room was beautiful and the balcony was so large we could invite friends over for dinner on it catered by the hotel! Walk to the beach was manageable and would definitely stay here again!
Hotel Covo dei Saraceni
€€€€+ | 5 Star | Pool | Views | Easy Walk to Beach
Hotel Covo dei Saraceni is a great option if you are looking for a high-end property that is beautiful in just about every way. It would be difficult to beat its location unless you LOVE walking up and down the steep roads of Positano each day and don’t want to be close to the beach.
€€€€ | 4 Star | Pool
Great hotel in Positano with epic views from the pool. The hotel is higher up in the town and has a cool location, but be prepared for a longer journey to get down to the beach by foot. T
€€€ | 3 Star | Cool villa-like option
Great little hotel with comfortable rooms and a great view.
Hotel Casa Albertina
€€ | 3 Star | Great Views | Great Price
This little hotel will be gentle on the budget but not so gentle on your feet. It is perched up high so you will definitely have quite the walk down to the beach, but you will not be able to beat these views!
Hotel Palazzo Murat
€€€€ | 4 Star | Great Pool & Views
This is a “Roman villa” like hotel with ancient features and modern comforts. Easy walk to the beach and down-town Positano makes it an easy choice!
€€€ | 4 Star | Centrally Located
Beautiful hotel full of natural light and vegetation with a truly “Amalfitana” feeling! A bit high up so be prepared to walk to get into the main square.
