Historical Traveller Reviews of Poseidon Hotel
Great, family-run hotelfrom A TripAdvisor Member
Staff is very helpful and warm. The bar area is a great place to unwind, and the room we stayed in had a great view from the balcony (jr. suite room).

Disappointingfrom A TripAdvisor Member
While the view from the Hotel Poseidon is great and the restaurant has a fantastic setting & their are other amenities which some of the other 4 stars in Positano do not have the Poseidon is over priced and they are trading too much on the location & the view.
Fell below my expectations...from A TripAdvisor Member
a king size bed is the standard "2 twins pushed together"
minimal decor... one small dresser in the small closet
view from our balcony was VERY obstructed
the hairdryer was a tube with a small stream of warm air coming out
we had an ant invasion in our bathroom (which was promptly taken care of upon notification)
small tv, with only one english channel; no movies, etc.
linens ok, but nothing special
maid service only mediocre
Good breakfast buffet included and open till 11am (which is huge for us as we stayed out late and slept in each morning)
Quiet hotel with few young people (almost no children), which was nice b/c we really wanted to relax
Excellent air conditioner (with MANY settings, etc), so we were never uncomfortable
maids came by each evening to replace towels, bring extra pillows, etc
The terrace (which served meals, had a bar, included the pool, etc.) was amazing... the bar was quite nice, but closed a bit early... nice porch swings and loungers on the terrace... really was breathtaking...
Things to note:
Gym closes early
Staff is not OVERLY friendly
parking does cost 20 Euros or so per day (but if you're up for an adventure DEFINITELY rent a car, we had SO much fun with our Fiat Panda) and it is valet
This hotel is nice, but it is not a Ritz. I cannot imagine that any of the lesser priced hotels were less cushy or less nice, but I didn't really check. If I return, I will either stay at Le Sireneuse or Palazzo Sasso in Ravello (we had an excellent dinner there one night and it seemed MUCH nicer)
Absolutely Wonderful!from wrldtrvlrgrl
We splurged for a suite at the top of the hotel -- the $$ was well worth it for the honeymoon, but for a future stay, I'll try a regular room. I looked at them - they are VERY small, but most have a good-sized balcony. Trust me, even w/ the large suite, we spent minimal time in the room -- you will spend it at the pool/restaurant deck, walking around town, or on your room balcony.
Loved the people who worked there - and I also enjoyed meeting the people who stayed there. My husband and I often played backgammon or chess after dinner with drinks on the restaurant deck. Rooms are clean - the suite is great.
The Location: it's on the beautiful built-up side of Positano, so you look on the other side (where the Sirenuse is) -- but it is absolutely beautiful and no complaints. It's nice and high up in town so you get great views, and it's just enough away from the hustle and bustle at the bottom. The restaurants (esp. the pizza place and I forget the name of the family restaurant) up the street are great -- typically Italian -- the view owners treated us great when we told them that the Poseidon sent us. Exactly what we wanted!
Sirenuse comparison: We went to the Sirenuse for drinks around twilight - which is what I recommend. We paid around $450 and the Sirenuse was around $600 for a regular room -- Poseidon was definitely a better deal, nice and quiet/friendly -- go to the Sirenuse for lunch if you wish -- definitely for drinks.
We will probably stay there for the majority of our Amalfi Coast stay -- when we do go back!

Top Local Tips for Positano
You may arrive by ferry but if possible come by car Older folks should rent a car to come to Positano for the easiest arrival.you can arrive by ferry but you must arrange for the hotel or the dock porter to bring your bags to the hotel.From the beach in Positano you can take a ferry to and from Capri,Sorrento and Naples.Bella
June is a perfect time to visit June is a fabulous time to visit Positano. It's very hot (26 -29 degrees) but not to the extremes that you would get in July and August. It's obvioulsy busy with tourists but not overrun...the loungers by the pool are not always busy...there is space at the beach and for the most part resturant reservations are not always neccesary.
Walking The hills are steep and Positano probably isn't the place for those with mobility problems. My wife and I do not suffer in this way and, in fact, are walkers. We enjoyed the wonderful "Walk of The Gods from above Amalfi to Monte Pertuso, above Positano. On arriving there, we had the opportunity to catch a bus down to the village but decided to walk. A great mistake. There were several thousand steps to go down and the following day our calves had seized up. Catch the bus!
