I traveled to the Amalfi Coast with my 21-year old daughter. Hotel Bougainville was the perfect spot for us - great location, clean and quaint. I recommend to anyone visiting Positano that wants an affordable and accommodating place to stay!


The hosts were extremely helpful and friendly, hotel was clean and well kept, breakfast was good, and a perfect base for travelling the Amalfi Coast. Parking is availabel across the road at an extra cost (we were charged 20 euro per day by the Carpark operators). Definetely recommend this hotel.


Absolutely beautiful..... a dream.

We absolutely loved this hotel. We found Simon to be especially helpful in providing us with recommendations regarding restaurants, local merchants and the quieter beach. Our room was very clean and quiet despite our location on Via Cristoforo Colombo. The breakfasts were fantastic (just the right amount of food) and the cappuccino was excellent. Our view from

Our honeymoon trip to Italy began in the exquisitely romantic, beautiful, scenic and tranquil small town of Positano. The enjoyment of our stay was magnified by our accomodations at the Hotel Bougainville under the careful management of Simon and Marella. Both hosts went out of their way to make our stay in Positano a joyful and memorable one with their care for us as guests. Simon was right on with each of his recommendations including local restaurants, towns, and transport to our next destination (Rome). He even went out of his way to help us get tickets to a soccer game in Naples! Naples won, however we are not sure if Simon swung that one too! haha! Loaning us wine glasses and a bottle opener was a nice added touch, too. The hotel was very clean. Our balcony view was wonderful. The breakfasts were good and my wife and I found that the cappucinos during breakfast were the best out of Positano, Naples and Rome! We look forward to coming back to Positano for one of our anniverseries and will be staying at the Bougainville for sure

Simon, Luigi and Marella: Your warm hospitality and the hotel that you run so smoothly made our stay in Positano all the more special. We feel lucky to have found such a convenient and comfortable place to come home to after our day trips to Capri, Sorrento and Pompeii. The short, leisurely stroll to the beach made it easy to enjoy the superb food, shopping and scenery your lovely town had to offer. Many thanks and warm regards

From the moment we e-mailed Simon and Marella we knew this was the place we wanted to stay during our stay in Positano. The response from e-mail was always quick and helpful. Simon arranged our English speaking driver to meet us at the airport and the excellent service never faltered. Our arrival was warm and friendly, the room was clean and bright, and all the staff were accommodating and friendly. We had a wonderful stay at the hotel which included breakfast on the terrace facing the sea. The rates were very reasonable. This place is defintely a hidden gem that glistened!

Happy clients from Australia

The hotel is in a perfect location right in the heart with all the shops. Located in the center of Positano, with easy walking access to the beach (5 minutes on walk, few stairs), to the internal Positano orange buses, and the external S.I.T.A. buses to go along the Amalfi & Sorrento Coastlines. The enjoyment of our staying in Positano was magnified by our accomodation at the Hotel Bougainville under the careful management of Mrs MARELLA. The breakfasts were good and we found that the cappucinos during breakfast were the best of Positano! MARELLA is really great, speaking good english and willing to answer you about all questions on the local area. Mrs MARELLA was completely charming and she helped us with all our transportation requests. A MUST DO in our opinion, MARELLA booked a wonderful boat tour to CAPRI with tour operator CASSIOPEA-POSITANO, which is a definite must - the best boat-trip of our entire tour of Italy... it was incredibly beautiful. We look forward to coming back to Positano for one of next trip and for sure we will be staying again at the Bougainville. Best regards from Australia.

As Positano can be expensive we found this hotel good value for money you are travelling on a mid range budget. Location is excellent with only a short walk through cobblestone lanes to the water. The staff are great, speaking good english and willing to answer you questions on the local area. We ate breakfast on a balcony every morning with a lovely view.

Very nice small place. Simon (the son of the owners) was extremely attentive, courteous, knowledgeable, helpful, and informative. The hotel is located in the center of Positano, with easy walking access to the beach, the internal Positano bus, and the external bus to go to the rest of the Amalfi coast. We had a very clean room facing the street, with a good view of the sea. and a nice balcony with chairs. Highly recommended. We would stay here again if given a chance to visit Positano again.
