The Salerno Centro Bed and Breakfast is a solid budget choice for travelers who want a convenient, central location at a low price. This family-run bed and breakfast has only three rooms, each of which has a flat-screen TV, a minibar, and a private bathroom. Wi-Fi is free, and breakfast, cooked to order, is included in the room rate. A covered outdoor patio is decorated with a plethora of flowers and plants. While there is no kitchen for guests to use, a microwave and a coffeemaker are available. All in all, this B&B is a great value, especially considering its central location.
This multi-level family-run guesthouse is made up of only nine rooms, each offering the sprawling coastal views the area is famous for. The quaint, idyllic grounds are covered in ivy and flowering vines, and the pride the family takes in their cuisine is reflected in the on-site restaurant’s exceptional offerings. Hotel Pellegrino is ideal for those seeking an affordable and romantic stay along the coastal cliffs. However, those wishing for an immediately accessible on-site pool or dedicated sunbathing area may be disappointed, though these amenities are available for use at a nearby hotel.
This 44-room beach hotel is located in a beautiful spot, with a private beach across the road and a large pretty pool, but the area is a bit deserted. There’s nowhere to walk, but guests can take the hotel’s free shuttle to Salerno and the Salerno train station -- where they can connect to ferries to Amalfi and Positano, and trains to Naples and Pompei -- or bring a car; parking is free. Amenities include a large outdoor pool, free buffet breakfast, tennis courts, a bar, and a restaurant serving local specialties. Rooms have minibars, flat-screen TVs, and free Wi-Fi, and many have private balconies with incredible ocean views.
Although the Miramare could use a little updating, its location — within a 10-minute walk to the beach and the center of Positano — is hard to beat. The Mediterranean décor is warm and welcoming, and rooms have amazing views of the Gulf of Salerno. Given its location on a cliff, guests should expect to do a lot of walking up and down stairs, but this is the norm in the area. Although there's no pool and the property lacks the newness and luxury of hotels such as the Villa Fiorentino or Il San Pietro up the road, the Miramare’s convenient central location make it a great value.
With beautiful sea views, the cliffside Hotel Marincanto scores plenty of points for ambiance. Rooms and suites have king beds and balconies, many with sea-facing views. Suites also have whirlpool hot tubs, but overall room decor is bland. On-site features include a restaurant serving an expansive (and free) buffet breakfast, as well as a small infinity pool with ocean views. There's a beach area as well, but it's only accessible via a long flight of stairs and it's technically not private.
