This is a fantastic place to stay in Positano. Yes, it is up a hill / up many stairs from the beach, but this is the case for almost all accommodation in Positano! Gippy is the best host ever. He even came and fetched us from the "wrong" bus stop. He is like a personal travel guide and nothing is too much trouble. Highly recommended.

Gippy was a terrific host and every one of his suggestions was great, particularly the food. Breakfast was more than enough for the extra 4 Euros. We hired two rooms, one of which had a terrific bed, however the other was extremely hard. Highly recommend for value and location. Gippy's character and knowledge was an added bonus!

Gippy the owner made us feel really comfortable and gave us wonderful tips to enjoy positano and surrounding areas The terrace was overlooking the sea where breakfast is served (good value for money) and we also had a small balcony with a wonderful view. We read all the comments and it was exactly like that! We had a great time!

The view was beautiful, we loved it as a B&B. Great alternative to the hotels which are at least 50% more expensive. Good restaurants nearby. Beach down many many steps but cheaper than main beach and they take you to main beach by boat for free. Everything in Positano is on a hill - but it is so worth it!

We're a young couple (mid 20s) traveling from Toronto, Canada who stayed at Venus Inn for 5 nights July 15 to 20, 2012. Neither of us has previously been to Italy, so we booked our stay based solely on the pictures and reviews. The hotel was absolutely lovely and very clean, our room was spacious and had a spectacular view, and the owner (Gippy) and his wife were very welcoming and helpful. The breakfast in the morning was always fresh and the perfect way to start the day. Gippy went out of his way to negotiate taxis for us and even get us a room at one of the neighbouring B&Bs when we had to stay an extra night. He gave us info on tours, restaurants, beaches, and just getting around the city. I would recomend this B&B to anyone traveling to Positano and definitely hope to come back soon.

We stayed in the Venus Inn for six nights in June and had a wonderful holiday. From the moment we arrived Gippy our host was there to greet us and showed us to our apartment. He gave us really great tips and suggestions for eating out, day excursions and general helpful info. The apartment itself was clean, bright and had a beautiful view from the balcony. We would definitely recommend it to anyone. Location was perfect near the beach and a short walk from the town centre. Hannah and Jennifer

The owner of this property, Gippy, was one of the most friendly and competent hotel owners we have ever met! Extremely knowledgeable of the area, he knew how to give excellent service and provide helpful hints without invading our privacy in any way. He was willing to provide an alternate breakfast to meet my special dietary needs, kept the place clean and helped us get around this lovely town. We highly recommend the Venus-Inn to all travelers!

Location and a welcoming host are the chief assets of this B&B. With a great view and morning sun on the terrace it's a lovely place for breakfast. Gippy the host is professional and friendly, lots of fun and very helpful. If you must bring a car, be sure to park at the nearby Anna Parking spot - they also were most helpful. Be prepared to climb lots of stairs to get around Positano!

Without a doubt, this is the best deal for your money in Positano! The room was large (by Euro standards), had a little kitchenette area, and the bathroom was a lot better than the other hotels we stayed at in Italy. We even had our own private balcony, which was great. The owner, Gippy, was friendly and helpful....he really makes you feel comfortable there! If I ever return, I will be staying here again!

Romantic vacation with my husband. Gippy is the best host ever. He is very knowledgeable about the area and very helpful when planning or suggesting things to do. Very beautiful area of Italy and very close area for day trips Would recommend taking the train and then a ferry to Posintano not the bus when travelling from Rome 415 steps to beach so would not recommend it to anyone who can't manage alot of walking.

Our stay at venus-Inn was perfect. The owner "Gippy" and his wife was very helpful, recommended things to see, timetables for bus and so on. Our room was nice and we ate breakfast on our own terrace with seaview every morning. Venus-Inn is located in the upper part of Positano and that was good for us, though we are not fond of living near the big tourist area (harbour)If we come back to Positano we will stay at Venus-Inn again.

Venus Inn is in an excellent location in Positano, very close to both the beach and the centre. There are about 100 steps down to the beach, so this should be kept in mind if this is a problem for you. We received a great welcome from the owner, who was very helpful in suggesting restaurants and giving general advice. He was also quick to respond by email in relation to queries on directions to the property, etc. The room was quite basic, but was a good size. Our room had a nice view over Positano, but not all of the rooms have a full view so this should be requested. This is a nice accomodation, with a helpful owner. Rooms are basic but very good value for the price in comparison with prices of accommodation generally in Positano.

Very nice place and we had an excellent stay. Just about what we expected. Though it was a bit of a surprise that the "street" was actually a narrow stairway. So with heavy luggage it was a bit painful to get there at first. And the taxi fare from Sorrento was very expensive (80 euro). The bus is 5 euro...

We had a great time. The inn keeper Giuseppe was delightful. The accomodations were nice - a little dowdy - but what do you expect for the best price in Positano? The view was great. I read previous complaints about no towels. There were towels - no problem. I would stay there again.

The room we occupied was spacious with high ceilings so that it remained cool even without air-conditioning and tropical weather in Positano during the particular week we were there. The adjacent spacious terrace overlooks Positano including a seaview. Morning sun, which is very pleasant. Easy access to the beach via hotels Victoria and Puppeto lifts, if one is prepared to use hotel Pupetto beach facilities (lounge chairs, restaurant etc.). Otherwise about 400 stairs. We would have welcomed a fridge in the room, but the landlord "Gippy" kindly gave us some space in his "breakfast" fridge. We should mention that "Gippy" is a very efficient and pleasant host, excellent hands-on approach to maintaining the facility, and helpful with useful information. We enjoyed talking to this very personable young man.

Very "simple" location. Towel will not be changed within 3 days; our room had shower and toilett within 1 sqm (other rooms are more comfortable). Breakfast (extra costs) simple but ok. Owner is nice guy - tried to make our stay as nice as he can. Location is very expensive compared to the service - buts that's related to Positano. Guess, you will not find a better location for the same price ... Positano is expensive - if you don't like to be a poor man after your stay, don't go 2x to a restaurant, at the same day ...

This Inn is situated on the mountain overlooking one of the most beautiful little towns in Italy. Location, location, location. While listed as an Inn, the host -- Guiseppi -- has some different ideas as to what our E90./night may include and that would not be towels nor soap. We finally were provided with mis-matched small towels for bathing and fortunately had brought some soaps from other hotels. Other than that, the view from our terrace was magnificiant and breakfast every morning was special. We ate in local restaurants that were true to Italian cuisine and the local wines were extraordinarily good. This Inn is the place to stay for a few days and nights.
