Reviewed 18 June 2017

Great location, amazing staff - extremely friendly, authentic, helpful, and welcoming - a nice treat after a long travel day! We were shown to our room personally which is a nice touch.
Breakfast was great - cappuccino/espresso as ordered and a nice selection of cheese, meat, boiled eggs, yogurt, cereal, fruit, croissants, juice, etc.
Terrace was nice after a long day and had a beautiful view and hotel was very clean. Mini-fridge was stocked and inexpensive.
Location to the city centre (I use that term loosely as Positano is very small and walkable) is a bit of a walk (although you're passing multiple shops and restaurants along the way) and getting to either beach involves many stairs - but welcome to Positano.....It is a city in a mountain - there are lots of stairs!

We would definitely stay again!

Stayed here with my friend and sister for two nights - wish we had stayed longer! The staff is incredibly friendly. We arrived a little before the official check-in time but our room was ready. I wouldn't say Florida Residence is "no frills," but it's also not super fancy...but unless a really nice room is what you're after, this place is absolutely perfect for a Positano stay.

We had a balcony (shared with a friendly couple in the room next door) that was perfect for relaxing mid-day and enjoying a glass of wine at night. The breakfast is a full spread - cereal, fruit, eggs, meats, espresso etc. Reliable wi-fi, too.

Do note that it's a trek up to the residence from the main beach! Lots of stairs, so you're guaranteed to be winded coming back. But, we knew that up front - wasn't a surprise. Just be warned if you don't want to go up and down so many stairs. Wasn't a problem for us at all.

Loved Positano so I definitely plan on returning - and would definitely stay at Florida Residence again.

Room Tip: Not sure if every room has terrace access - ours did but we didn't specifically ask for it. Defi...

The room is OK, the breakfast good value, but the view is simply stunning. Take time to sit in the beautiful balcony and enjoy the view, as Positano is picture perfect. The town is on a slope so you will climb but you can opt to stroll down, and take a bus up the hill that also works fine.

We have loved our stay here at Florida Residence. The staff is so kind and they make you feel like family. The terrace off our room has the most incredible view of the water and cliffside homes!!!! Love sitting out there! The breakfast buffet is wonderful featuring hard boiled eggs, cheese, meat slices, tomatoes, in addition to fruit, bread, cereal, yogurt. The gentleman makes us delicious cappuccinos as well. While it is not the most luxurious hotel, we loved the cultural feel to it... as if we were staying in an Italian home. Would definitely stay here again if we ever return to POSITANO.

Older rooms, with not a lot of updated features. But the proprietors couldn't have been nicer. Breakfast was more than adequate, with delicious espresso.The view from the deck was great. Sleep was great, as the rooms have great blackout shutters. Beds on the hard side. Long walk with many stairs to get down to the beach area, but buses are nearby. Free parking. But, if you have a wimpy rental car, the steep hill into the parking lot can be terrifying. We almost slipped backwards. We enjoyed our stay immensely.
