Florida Residence
Ranked #29 of 53 Positano B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 25 October 2014

This family run accommodation was a lovely place to settle my head in Positano. The staff were extremely helpful with any request and willing to go above and beyond. This place was clean with a beautiful view overlooking Positano.

I would say that the stairs are a pain but this seems to the norm in this area of the coast. However with the local bus stop being a 1 minute walk away this took the pressure off. This location also gave you the option of visiting the main beach, Spaggia Grande, or the local beach, Fornillo. The restaurants nearby were fantastic, which a discount card is offered for.

I personally found the bed a little hard but that did not deter me from getting a good nights sleep. The bathroom did lack a shower screen which is again nothing that is too drastic, but maybe just a little of what I am not used to.

Although the breakfast was modest, the coffee was fantastic and always on offer. Definitely great value for money in a location where finding cost efficient accomodation can be a hard task. Stay here for the view.

Room Tip: Wi-Fi is a bit sketchy in the last room. Request one closer to the lobby.

Florida Residence worked out perfectly for us because it had parking which is hard to come by in Positano. Good price, big room, balcony with great view, big bathroom. Coffee was good, modest breakfast, good proximity to nice restaurants, one of which they gave a a discount card for. Would recommend this hotel. The only downside was that none of our credit cards seemed to work there and the owner followed us to a Bancomat to get cash to pay with. Our cards worked everywhere else.

Lovely Family run accommodation. I was originally booked elsewhere, but through a series of complications with the bookings, it was recommended and booked for me, and sight unseen, I went through with the booking. I was not disappointed. Very Friendly and welcoming. Comfortable and clean. Good location. Nice restaurants nearby. Terrific views. Good value. Thoroughly recommended............."...........

We made a quick stop here on our Amalfi trip , very friendly family run business..free parking, lovely clean room, very filling breakfast, just a short stroll to beach and restaurants. Bus stops just outside if your not up to hill walks.

We stayed here for two nights in May 2014 and enjoyed it very much. We were a couple and two friends and were able to have rooms next to each other and shared the fabulous terrace with a beautiful view of the town and the coast. The hosts were very friendly and nice. They were also helpful, recommending a good restaurant for dinner and making sure we had the right type of coffee in the morning. There is walking to and from town, but enjoyable for the views and the experience of seeing the town. Having parking available as part of the cost was definitely a bonus in a town where there isn't much available. All in all, it was a great place to stay and we would stay here again. You will love the terrace on a sunny day!
