Breezy, cozy, Mediterranean comfort
Characterized by arched doorways and wall indentations featuring hand-painted scenery of old Positano, the Miramare’s lobby has a living room feel. Foliage abounds with vines and flowers surrounding every balcony, potted trees and plants throughout the lobby, and fresh purple flowers climbing over the ceiling of the breakfast room. Although the lobby, drawing room, and bar are spacious, the hotel itself is small and reminiscent of a family-run bed and breakfast.
Easy walk to shops, restaurants, and beach
As with most hotels in the area, there are many stairs involved to get anywhere from the Miramare, although with this in mind, it is about as central as you can get. It's about 200 steps above the beach and the main square of Positano and 100 steps below the main road and parking lot. The hotel is far enough above the beach that the noise from people and boats is more of a hum than a nuisance.
Full of narrow hallways, archways, and balconies with views
The balconies — some of which have a lounge area with tables and chairs — are the highlight of the rooms, all of which also come with a small flat-screen TV and clean bathrooms with colorful, hand-painted tiles. The heavy wood doors, dressers, and night stands create a sense of cosiness, but the upholstery is outdated in some rooms and the walls are sparsely decorated. There is a separate, multi-room apartment with an enormous terrace that's available for families and large groups.
No pool or in-room Internet, but free daily boat trips and concierge services
There is no pool area or outdoor public dining at the Miramare. The breakfast buffet is bountiful and fresh, and is served in a room covered in vines and purple flowers, with large windows with sea views. The Internet connection is limited and the cocktail bar area is small. A big bonus is the daily free boat trip into the sparkling blue sea. Hotel staff can help arrange day trips and give restaurant recommendations.
