The thing I love about a Guest House in Positano is the feel of ‘no-fuss’ and staying with a local family. This is our smallest category and is really not considered official Positano accommodation. A guesthouse was once described as a ‘boarding house’ or an ‘inn’…… but in another era. However, after years of living in Positano and knowing many of the guesthouse owners intimately, to Amanda, a guesthouse is generally a smaller hotel or room rental with a variety of services, according to the individual guesthouse. It’s a grey area to describe a classic guesthouse in Positano as a holiday rental.

Usually family-run, there is a nurturing feeling of staying in someone’s home. Some rooms have cooking facilities but most don’t. Occasionally you will find a pool, but mostly not. Breakfast is usually simple & included in the room rate, but not always.

This is an affordable relaxed and easy holiday rental with a lot of variety as to what facilities are available in each private rental. For this reason, a brief email to Amanda to explain what you are looking for is your best option. Amanda will assist you in a very short time to narrow down your options and help you decide which is the best holiday rental for you.

A classic no-fuss guesthouse is often an option for a less costly sojourn than the classic hotel. Obviously, the amenities are also less detailed. A bowl of pasta in your room at midnight might be difficult to organise through your guesthouse. But often these establishments offer an apartment with a kitchenette attached to the main building, so you can cook your own pasta at midnight!
