    Hotel Villa Franca ~ Positano Italy
    Very expensive hotel, teeny tiny rooms, no coffee, no ironing board or iron but you can pay a very high price to have anything pressed!!! Only one complimentary water a day for 2 people!! Stunning view though

    Very Good8.0
    The staff and service at the hotel are excellent. The room however was extremely small and much smaller than advertised (approx 1/2 the square footage that is advertised). So small in fact that we only had room for one of our two suitcases - and this was an upgraded "suite". The hotel was beautiful though and the views are unparalleled, so if room size (and cost) isn't a concern then I would certainly recommend. The location is on top of the hill, which is not so convenient, but the hotel does provide a free shuttle service for most of the day/night

    Great attention to details
    A beautiful hotel and an incredible service with attention to details. My only disappointment was that the room was very small. We had a suite with ocean view, and, for American standards, a suite is always bigger than regular rooms. In this case it wasn’t. We were traveling for 15 days and had 2 big suitcases and it was very difficult to accommodate all the belongings. Besides that, the hotel offers great service, great staff, and a tremendous views. If we return to Positano, we will stay there again for sure ! There attention to details was one of a kind...
