I get A LOT of messages from people asking me where to stay in Positano. Usually they don't give me any idea of their budget or preferences so it is really hard to help, not to mention very time consuming. (And they usually don't even say 'please' when they ask, what is that all about?
So I have sat down and put together some lists of places to stay in Positano depending on budget, preferences and location. If you want any further information about any of the places here you can easily use google, which will be quicker than asking me!
So let's start with the cheapest and the most expensive. Positano has got 1 hostel,
And Positano also has 3 5-star hotels:
In between the cheapest and most expensive places to stay there is a huge choice of B&B's, villas, hotels, apartments and boutique hotels and I probably don't know them all so feel free to leave a comment if you want to add to any list.
If you want to rent a villa or apartment you're best off going to Summer in Italy.
If you want a cheap room go to Airbnb.

Starting with the closest to the main beach and working further away:
Covo dei Saraceni

Many private villas have pools too, go look on Summer in Italy. A few that I can think of that are great for wedding groups or large families are in no particular order:
Villa San Giacomo
Palazzo Santa Croce
There are many others that I have not visited.
Ok, now let's start at the top of the mountain and work our way down towards the beach. Positano has two little suburbs above the main town, Montepertuso and Nocelle. There aren't any hotels but there are a quite a few B&B's and apartments. It is peaceful and quieter than the main town with breathtaking views and great access for hiking trails.
