Hotel Gabbiano is a cosy little family owned hotel, located in centre of Positano with a fantastic view of the town and the sea.
The hotel was renovated in 2003 and is simply but nicely decorated. There is an entrance directly from the small road that winds down through the heart of Positano, and therefore there is virtually no through traffic, except for the few tourists who stray into the town, or who are on their way to their hotel.
It is easy enough to arrive by public transport since the the local bus stops virtually on the doorstep of the hotel. If you wish to arrive by car, parking is on the road for a fee. Alternatively there are several large parking garages in Positano also for a fee. The hotel is relatively high up and there are about 500 steps to get up and down to the beach.
Hotel Il Gabbiano has a small reception desk with a Wi-Fi zone, a bar, a breakfast room and a lounge. The total of 20 rooms are nicely but simply furnished and all have a balcony or terrace with a sea view. The rooms have a telephone, TV and a bathroom with a shower and toilet, and several rooms have air conditioning.
