Hotel Palazzo Murat

Palazzo Murat, Positano

Historic Hotel


Short description

Boutique hotel in an 18th-century former royal palace


Recommended for:


King of Naples Gioacchino Murat, the brother-in-law of Napoleon, made this charming palazzo his summer residence from 1808 until the end of his reign seven years later. It has been run as a hotel by the local Attanasio family for generations. Guests dine by candlelight with stunning views of the colourful majolica cupola of the Duomo, steep winding alleyways and the sea beyond. All the main attractions of the town are within easy walking distance, including the Spiaggia Grande, from where the so-scenic Sentiero degli innamorati leads down to the intimate seclusion of Spaggia Formillo. The palazzo is set beside a pretty courtyard and extensive botanic gardens, with cascading bougainvillea climbing the walls and framing the windows.


The 31 rooms feature individual pieces of restored antique furniture and terracotta, ceramic, wooden and wrought iron details fashioned by local craftsmen, coupled with modern conveniences from air conditioning to iPod dock. All have a terrace or balcony overlooking the gardens or the town, and the Deluxe rooms in the oldest wing of the hotel are steeped in Baroque detail and atmosphere. The Special Deluxe room is said to be where the king entertained a string of secret lovers.


The Al Palazzo restaurant serves up exquisite traditional and contemporary Campanian and wider Mediterranean cuisine in a delightful indoor and outdoor setting, using many fresh ingredients from the kitchen garden. An extensive wine list runs to over 400 Italian and world wines. A buffet breakfast is available in the courtyard until 11 am, the bar is open all day, and snacks and light dishes are available throughout the afternoon.


The brand new pool is a fabulous addition to the gardens. A 24-hour concierge service allows you to personalise your stay, arranging your pick of excursions, tours, restaurant bookings and car or boat rental.
