Positano: Holiday House Gilda

Great location, friendly people, and low price!

In our month trip to Italy, we needed an affordable place to stay in Positano for two nights. I came across Holiday House Gilda on the Internet. I found that the price was great, and to be honest, I didn't really pay much attention to other details. I remember that I booked a one bedroom apartment with breakfast for 80 euros a night, and it was right on the beach.

I could not have asked for better. When we actually arrived, we knew that we were getting much more than what we paid for (compared to other places). Warm welcoming Italians, rooms arranged great (old but clean and everything you need minus shampoo), a terrace with a sea view and view of Positano that makes you say WOW. It was great.

Italian breakfast in the morning was good, too. Danielle, who I believe is the manager, is very frendly and talked to us a lot about Italian life. They also gave us a lot of information about Positano.

The location of the house is not in the town center, but easily accessible by bus or walking. Going down to town is downhill and took us around 12 minutes. Going back up to the house took around 20 minutes. The bus stop is about 30 meters from the gate to the house. I would definitely recommend this place!
