Hotel Vittoria is a fantastic 3 star hotel located above the Fornillo beach in a quiet area far from the tourist crowds. It is perfect for those who are coming to Positano for sunbathing because of private access to the beach and a special discount at the Pupetto beach bar.

The buffet breakfast, which is included in the price of a room, is very delicious and served on the terrace with stunning views. You should expect a lot of fresh fruit, yogurt, fluffy scrambled eggs, and plenty of coffee Americana.
The rooms are pretty spacious, clean, equipped with everything that you need for a cozy staying, and decorated with beautiful coastal-style tiles. There is also a huge terrace with two sun loungers, a table, and chairs where you can enjoy sunsets or leisurely morning talks.
The bathroom is also very clean, stylish, and equipped with necessities like a hairdryer, towels, and other free toiletries. Worth mentioning is that the whole hotel is covered with a strong and fast WiFi internet connection. Hotel Vittoria does not have its own parking, so you will have to park nearby on private paid parking that costs 25 euros per day. If you are heading to the Positano center, you can either take a local shuttle bus or walk for 15 minutes.
