"Nice views"
Hotel is away from the central part of town which was both good and bad. Not a bad walk up/down but plan to take your time strolling through the streets on the way to/from. Even though in a less congested area, there are fine little restaurants and shops very close. Also helpful was the bus stop very close to the hotel. We hopped on the intercity bus and transferred at the Sita bus stop where we took it to Sorrento. Very easy process. (get your tickets for the Sita bus ahead of time at a Tabacchi) Our room had an nice little balcony with an amazing view of the sea. We enjoy our dinner one night out on our balcony as the sun went down. The room itself was pretty basic. Small bathroom and particularly small shower. Breakfast area was nice, again with views out to the sea, but the food selections was fairly standard.

The problem was the bathroom and the shower. Only a streamer in the roof. Seperate taps for warm and cold water. It came hot water from both so it was difficult to take a shower.

had a lovely stay here, clean and comfortable, apparently close to fornillo, which we didnt visit, but it is 20 mins to positano centre including a large uphill staired section. apart from that worth it considering the experience and cost

Great middle of the road accommodation. Asked for a room with a view. Got a room with a small balcony and a fantastic sea view. Continental breakfast was excellent. Staff went out of their way to help and were very friendly. Would stay there again anytime. Would highly recommend Pensione Casa Guadagno to others.

This was our first time at Hotel Pensione Casa Guadagno and we were very pleased. The staff were very professional and welcoming. The breakfast served was very delicious and free wifi was appreciated. Our room was great with a nice ocean view. We would highly recommend this hotel and plan to come back and stay a little longer this time. Thank you to all the staff at Hotel Pensione Casa Guadagno, you were fabulous!

Very happy. Accommodation around this area seems to be a bit hit and miss, with friends having had less positive experiences with location, service etc. I was so happy with Casa Guadagno though. The staff were lovely and helpful, the room was impressively clean..and we had a nice sea view. Not too far from the beach (be prepared for a lot of steps, though, this is generally unavoidable throughout Positano). Definitely recommended!

Despite the ants crawling all over our hotel room, we had a nice stay. This hotel is close to some nice restaurants on the hill but if you don't like climbing stairs, this place is quite a hike from the bottom.

"Great four night stay!"
My husband and I enjoyed the four nights we stayed at Pensione Casa Guadagno. The hotel is well located and very close to the main strip in Positano that has a lot of great restaurants and shops. Our hotel room was spacious, clean and had a great view! The bed was comfortable and the A/C worked well. We also had good wifi connection, which we relied on to find info related to our trip. The staff at the hotel was friendly and very helpful. Upon arrival they provided us with a map of the area and recommendations of sites to visit. They were also very helpful with arranging taxis for us. Breakfast was very simple and usually consisted of croissants, cereal, cheese, bread etc. (3/5). Only 400 steps down to a very beautiful beach :) I would stay at this hotel again!

"Nice little hotel"
Very conveniently located. Quiet yet close to all the restaurants and the beach. Rooms are pretty basic but clean. Hosts were very friendly. Honestly, I wouldn't bother with a sea view room again though the view with the moonlight on the sea is very pretty, as we hardly spent any time at the hotel. Positano is just too pretty to spend time inside a hotel room. Tip: carry hair conditioner as none of hotels in Italy seem to provide it and with the sea being so salty, you'll definitely need it. Overall, a nice quiet little hotel to stay in.

"Nice hotel with great seaview"
Had a great stay here for 3 nights. We had a balcony with a great seaview it was lovely. Itailan breakfast was included and also a nice view from the dinning area. It was quite in the hotel which made it easy to sleep. The bed mattress was a little hard and sometimes it took a few mins for the toilet to flush as you had to wait for the tank to fill but these were minor issues considering the price of the rooms. I would stay here again.

"Great location, awesome views from Balcony"
Spartan but comfortable room. We were in a triple room, that had a huge balcony with killer views (only partially obstructed). It's a 20-25 minute walk to the main beach or you can catch a regular and frequent bus there. There are some very good resaturants within 2-5 minutes walking distance (also with great views). There's a convenient laundromat about 5 minutes walk.It's a family run pensione and the hosts are very warm and friendly.

"Relaxing holiday in a great spot"
It was a real pleasure to stay here; the weather was warm, the breakfast room and our balcony both had fantastic views, and the hotel is at the top of the steps down to the lovely Fornillo beach (the smaller, quieter one in Positano). We enjoyed the home-baked croissants every day for breakfast, loved the room decor, and didn't miss the lack of a TV. Wireless internet that worked in the hotel room would have perhaps been better, but the breakfast room (where it did work) was always available (and anyway, always having the internet available isn't so good for holidays). The staff at the hotel were always very friendly and helpful to us, and we would go back to the same place. (June 2013)

"Varmt välkomnande i Positano"
Jag och min sambo hade en 8 dagars resa till Rom och kände för att komma ut mot havet lite. Vi hittade detta hotell under tusenlappen för båda. Havsutsikt, egen balkong, nära till både strand och stad. Jättetrevlig personal och fräsha lokaler. God utökad kobtinentalfrukost intogs på den soliga balkongen som också fanns vid frukostutrymmet. Hit kan vi komma tillbaka även med barnen. Shoppingen bestod mest av lokalt hantverk och är rätt snabbt gjord. Priaerna för mat lite högre än i stan, men godtagbara. Folk bor ju här så någon mataffär borde finnas. Vi såg ingen men så stannade vi bara en natt också. Jag badade i havet fast det bara var mars!

"Nice view and beautiful room"
if you use sita bus to get the pension, you have to take off the bus when you get to the first positano (there's two positano station. if you come from the Sorrento you have to take off at the first Positano station, and from the Amalfy, then get off at the second one.) And the room was beautifu also. The tile of floor and wall is cute. it has nice view. I sent it to my friends, they asked me the pension name.

"Location disappoibting"
04/14/16 Tracy E NSW Australia
We booked our room based on reviews but were a little shocked at the distance from the Centre of town. Unless you're a mountain goat I'd avoid this area. Around 400 steps straight down to the small beach or a 30 min walk into town. The steps back up are a killer. We were waking into town and catching the bus back each day. The views are beautiful but there's not a lot to see in Positano and a day trip would have done us. The owners of the Pensione were lovely. Room was small but very clean. Breakfast was a good start to the day.

"A friendly place"
03/27/16 Gikas G Athens, Greece
The location is the best for those who do not prefer to be at the noisy and touristic center of the village. In case you dont want to meet tourists in every step, stick to this part of the village, still 10-15 minutes walk from "down-town". Rooms are descent and clean. The staff is very friendly. We forgot our passports, ok they forgot to give them back to us, but they tried their best and we received them in Naples a couple of hours later. That was nice and much appreciated.

"Very Good BnB"
11/22/15 eb2015742 Whitby
The Pensione Casa Guadagno was a very good place to stay while in Positano. The small family run pensione had a great view, was within walking distance down to the beach, and had lots of restaurants nearby along the walk. Very friendly staff, comfortable rooms, and a good breakfast included. Although this is a late review since we travelled in August 2013, it's still worth commenting on.

"Super BnB in Positano"
11/04/15 lxviiigto Cherry Hill, New Jersey
At Pensione Casa Guadagno we stayed in room #6 which accommodates three so it was a good size room with a decent size bathroom for an Italian BnB. The treat of this room is the larger balcony/terrace which gives you a panoramic view of the sea and the town up the mountain side ( a beautiful view at night). They have a good breakfast selection of cereal, yogurt and pastry's with a selection of coffee,tea or milk. They will also prepare an espresso or cappuccino if you like. The BnB is in the Fornillo section of Positano a little more quite and not as crowded and is very close to many fine restaurant's We would like to thank Phil and Sabrina for a great time here and also for helping us to get our luggage down to the ferry on the day of our departure, A big help. We could have clearly spent twice as much in this area but would not have been more satisfied with the accommodations. We hope very much to return some day.

"Lovely family run pensione!"
10/28/15 Tessa H Brisbane, Australia
We stayed here for a week recently for our honeymoon and really enjoyed our stay. It's a small pensione, run by a lovely family who were so helpful and friendly! Our room was huge with a view out to the ocean. It was comfortable and clean. It's not 5 star but if you're after an affordable, comfortable place to say in a great location then I would highly recommend this place. It's also within walking distance to the restaurant we found to be our favourite in Positano - Saraceno d'Oro. The breakfast was basic but delicious - cereal, pastries (amazing!), breads, juice, coffee, more than enough to keep you going. The decor is a bit dated but we found it quite charming.

Despite all the ants crawling all over our room, our room was very clean. The bed was very hard and the pillows weren't too comfortable but this place was a great find and a wonderful place to stay in Positano. We liked that it was a short walk down to the beach (400 stairs) and close to some really good restaurants in positano. We really enjoyed our stay here.

"Beautiful view, wonderful people"
10/17/15 Tuppy2011 Sydney, Australia
A couple aged 64 and 70 stayed 6 nights. Our room (room 5) was small but the terrace looking directly over the sea compensated. The best room was room 6 - try to get it. The bathroom was very small with a shower so small that it was like showering in cling wrap with the shower curtain. The bed was very hard and sort of sloping BUT this place was a great find and very cheap. Well placed about halfway between top bus stop and beach near some great restaurants. The breakfast was meagre but ok. The room was spotless and well serviced. Major asset - the staff - all part of one family. Nothing was too much trouble for Sabrina. Ice, glasses, printing a ticket - all with a smile. This is a budget hotel but fabulous.

In a very touristic town with seriously expensive hotels we loved this B&B. They capture the ambiance of the town. Impeccable rooms with a stunning view. Very friendly staff and a short distance from public parking makes this a rare find. A short walk down around 250 stairs will get you to the beach.
