Hotel Savoia Review – Right For You?:
If you’re looking for an affordable, charming old-world hotel in the heart of Positano, the Hotel Savoia is definitely worth considering.
The orange and stone exterior to this hotel is a throw-back to classic Italy from years ago. In fact the hotel itself was actually built in 1936.
It has been in the family for 3 generations and has the true feel of a family-run, lovingly cared for establishment. Then there’s the location.
It’s right in the heart of Positano town – and only 200 metres from the beach. So you can easily get to the beach, ferries, shops and even walk up a bit to get more of the popular restaurants for dinner.
It’s also very close to the bus stop – which again – makes it quite easy to get around if you plan on exploring the Amalfi coast in general.
The hotel itself has 39 rooms situated over 5 floors. The rooms are simple but tastefully decorated (this is a 3 star so you won’t get 5 star luxury).
Many of the rooms (but not all) have balconies with town/sea views. The top rooms have smaller balconies while the middle-situated rooms have larger terraces as you can see in the picture below.
So your best bet if you want a fantastic view and a romantic terrace is to book a suite with a sea view.
The only real downside is that there is no wifi in the rooms as of this writing – you’ll only get it in the common areas. (However wireless is free in the common areas).
You get a free buffet breakfast included with your room booking. It includes boiled eggs, cold meats, cheeses, yogurts, toast, cold cereal, juices and pastries. I’ve heard that they also make a world-class, to-die-for cappuccino at this hotel as well (included with your breakfast).
Parking is available on site for a fee – however be aware that there are height restrictions. So forget the trucks or SUV’s. In Positano, the smaller the car, the better.
Another nice touch is that the hotel provides towels for the beach.
There really isn’t a huge restaurant – but since you’re so close to everything, you really don’t need one (there is a café/coffee shop and bar lounge at the hotel). The hotel staff can give you recommendations on where to eat as well.
The Hotel Savoia is a charming, traditional Italian-style family run smaller hotel that is both affordable and close to the beach.
You don’t get some of the bells and whistles like a pool, sun deck or a huge fancy restaurant that other hotels give you. But if you’re looking for a traditional, affordable hotel in Positano that’s in an ideal location – and run with love – this is it.
