Praiano is a quieter town and it depends what you are looking for in terms of relaxation or going out. Positano is not far and very affordable on bus, but a little pricey on taxi. It was worth it for us though. Great town to visit.
The staff was very friendly, especially the manager. Very helpful and kind. Our room was very nice - clean and spacious. Same with the bathroom, which was a highlight in the room. For Europe, a very nice size room and bathroom, both very clean. Our patio, with a table and 2 chairs, overlooked the gorgeous waters of the Mediterranean. We took a day trip to the island of Capri, which the staff was kind enough to help us arrange. Great visit! And the pick up is right at the hotel (down many stairs, but at the hotel nonetheless).
