With a dramatic location directly on the cliffs of Positano with stunning and unrivalled views out to sea, the Art Hotel Pasitea's location can not be described without using the word 'breath-taking'. The remainder of the picturesque coast is on your doorstep, as is the town of Positano itself with it's selection of amazing restaurants and cosy trattorias.
Rooms at the Art Hotel Pasitea are all furnished in masonry lava stone and wrought iron offering a unique and welcoming base for your stay. Each feature a modern LCD 27" TV, internet access, comfortable pillows and beds.
Sea View rooms feature a private bathroom with bath or shower, mini bar, satellite TV, air conditioning, telephone, wall hair dryer, tea coffee maker, free high speed internet and a beautiful balcony with a wonderful sea-view.
Art features prominently throughout the hotel and it is often host to exhibitions from local artists. These pieces of art are prevalent throughout the hotel. The restaurant, as you would expect, features fine Italian cuisine and views to die for.

I booked this hotel for myself and a friend, with whom I travel every summer. To describe this as a 4 star hotel is frankly farcical and should be investigated by any authoritative and independent grading association. The hotel is basic, clean but lacking on so many levels. not least of which is a decent internet connection, which is only really available in the lobby or ground floor of the building. The rooms are simply furnished, tired and dull and lacking in most of the modern conveniences, you would expect of a hotel boasting to be 4 star. We booked and paid for 'Executive Rooms' with Sea Views, what we were allocated were basic rooms with tiny balconies in need of a paint and a cramped bathroom, where you would need to be a contortionist to use the toilet as it butts up against an under basin shelf very poorly designed. The stainless steel fixtures are old and discoloured, the mini bar and furnishings uncomfortable and the pillows and bedding more akin to seaside Bed & Breakfast than a 4 star hotel. Breakfast is buffet style, basic and served in a cramped room where it is difficult to manoeuvre between tables when the restaurant is busy at Breakfast time. The restaurants recommended by the charming front of house staff are all ordinary and clearly subject to commission and kick backs. Do your own research. This is not a luxury hotel or indeed anything that barely resembles a luxury hotel although the rates per night rival that of grand 5 star hotels with all the embellishments of luxury in cities around the world. Do your own research but prepare otherwise for a basic accommodation experience, lacking on so many levels for a modern traveller. What should have been a memorable stay turned out to be a disappointment because of the quality of accommodation here. The walk down to town is easy but be prepared for a little panting on the way back up again. Collapse

Where do I even start... As soon as we entered the hotel to check in which took us literally a whole hour to do, it just all went down hill from there! First of all, the staff are not friendly, not helpful or informative. The lady at the reception while checking in was so negative with every response she had to say! Through our 4 night stay, not once did any of the staff help us or give us any kind of information that would help us around Positano! Which should be the quite opposite when it comes to a hotel. The breakfast is a complete FAIL! In terms of the coffee, orange juice, the variety and etc. Not once were we able to enjoy the breakfast at the hotel, to the extend where my friends and I decided to have breakfast outside on our last day! Do not even get me started about our room. Not once during my 4 night stay I was able to walk bare foot in the hotel room from how dirty and filthy the floor was. We found 2 HUGE spiders twice, the room was so dusty! Just a complete disaster when it came to the cleanliness of the room! Also, very poor phone service and WIFI connection in the rooms! Honestly, for the crazy price that we paid for this hotel, it was not worth one single penny! I would never recommend this hotel to anybody or would never even come back to it! I disliked everything about it! Whenever we would come back to the hotel, we would be so miserable that we had to stay here! If it were not for Positano being full and sold out with hotels, I would have packed my bags and left to another hotel from the moment I saw how negative, rude and unfriendly the staff were! NOT RECOMMENDED AT ALL! Collapse

I have had my fair share of hotel stays so you must trust me when I say this hotel is terrible and you should AVOID staying in it. My friends and I were so excited to reach Positano and have a good time. Location wise, not great. Check-in was TERRIBLE! It took them one hour to check us in. The receptionist was so unfriendly and said "no" to everything. No positivity or excitement whatsoever. Finally, we got to our room, we had a triple room with a jacuzzi (looks more like a misplaced bath tub in the middle of the room) - the room was very dirty, the floor was nearly black, you literally cannot walk barefoot for 2 seconds. Don't even get me started with the bathroom. The standup shower is so tiny, we couldn't even fit in it and we are just small to medium sized girls. I actually wanted to cry because when it comes to hotels I have no concerns other than cleanliness and the bathroom. When I asked to speak to the manager, they avoided the request and told me he was unreachable. If Positano wasn't fully booked I would have packed my bag and walked out that same day! Breakfast was included in the rate and obviously the most exciting meal of the day....we didn't have breakfast once while we were there, just a banana! Even the coffee tasted horrible!!! The displayed apples were unwashed and we had to ask the barista to wash it before we ate it. I honestly couldn't wait to leave!!!!! AVOID THIS HOTEL! Collapse

Everything in this hotel was horrible! If you're planning on booking your vacation in this hotel, FORGET ABOUT IT. My sisters and I got a "triple room"- the extra bed was the most uncomfortable bed I've ever slept on! The AC in the room simply did not work. The room was on the last floor so we didn't get any wifi or phone connection. The breakfast that's included in your package is so limited and tastes terrible, you might as well not pay extra for it. I can deal with everything, but what I couldn't deal with was the DIRTY bedroom! On our first day we informed them to clean the room, when the housekeeping supervisor came in to see the room she was shocked to how dirty it was because "she didn't check on the housekeepers that day" and even showed us how dirty the floor was!!!?! Everything was so dusty and the room did not get any cleaner throughout our stay. The shower in the bathroom was so tiny that every time I would raise my arm, I would hit the shower door! And finally, I've never come across such rude staff. They knew how uncomfortable our stay was and did nothing to accommodate us, they were so unhelpful. If we asked for anything they would just give us looks and say no to everything. I would not recommend this hotel to anyone. Value for money was below 0, especially that rate of the money was equivalent to that of a 5 star hotel! Collapse
