The Hotel Poseidon will close on Sunday, October 29th and will reopen on April, 19th 2018.
Given the history and the structure of the Hotel Poseidon, born in 1955 as a private villa of the Aonzo Family - who still lives in it and runs the Hotel as their home (or even better, as they love to say) the 48 rooms, individually furnished with a Mediterranean flair and complete with all the comforts of a 4-star Hotel, are all different one from the other.
The floors are tiled in hand-painted maiolica and the decor includes furniture belonging to the family which gives the rooms a certain warmth: classy details, such as wrought iron headboards and antique frames, add the perfect finishing touches.
All the rooms – apart from the Standard Double Rooms, which have a private terrace facing a garden – have a private panoramic terrace or balcony which enjoys a wonderful view of Positano and its colored houses perched on the mountain, a part of the Amalfi Coast until the next village of Praiano and the sea.
Each room has a bathroom with a bathtub and/or a shower, hairdryer, air conditioning, minibar, safe, TV, direct phone line and a free and unlimited WIFI internet service.
Most of the rooms are easily reachable by the extraordinary wooden elevator (which was the first one built in Positano, back in 1965) and connecting rooms give the chance to families to enjoy their stay at the Poseidon just like they were home.
