Hotel Palazzo Murat

Top choice hotel in Positano
Image by

Positano personified. Hidden behind an ancient wall away from the tourists who surge along the pedestrian thoroughfares daily, this magnificent hotel occupies the 18th-century palazzo (mansion) that the one-time king of Naples used as his summer residence. Rooms are regal quarters (one even has a crown over the bed) with sumptuous antiques, original oil paintings and gleaming marble.

The lush gardens contain banana trees, bottlebrush, Japanese maple and pines. Amid them you'll find a restaurant, the obligatory pool and plenty of romantic nooks for an aperitivo (pre-dinner drink).
