“Spectacular views over Positano”
Reviewed 3 September 2013

We were so pleased when we finally arrived up the steps to this beautiful, family run hotel. It's a little bit of a hike to get there but well worth it & you'll soon find that everywhere is the same in Positano. The room was huge & decorated in keeping with Italianata decor. We had a small but plentiful balcony overlooking Positano. Breakfast was fairly basic but there was fresh coffee every morning & you could purchase hot food if required, which was nice to have the optiion. We used the sun terrace every day & had it to ourselves. I would say it's very well located for the price.

Room Tip: Room overlooking the bay

This hotel is lovely. The staff is kind, helpful and accommodating. The rooms are simple, yet very charming. Everything is immaculate and the balconies/terraces are to die for. I was travelling with my teenage daughter and we felt very comfortable and secure at this hotel.

The view from Casa Albertina is simply spectacular!!!! No words could ever describe how absolutely breathtaking it is. To wake up there each morning was a true pleasure. Breakfasts on the dining terrace are also gorgeous and delicious. I will never forget this beautiful place and thank you to the amazing & warm staff!

While stayihg with locals in Naples, freinds in Positano booked this hotel for us becasue they know the owners and said there was not a better place to stay. On the way my phone broke so I was in a bad mood. When we got there the front desk staff spoke perfect English and took my phone for the evening making his best efforts to fix it, so kind. The rest of the stay they went over and above for our comfort. They are just great warm people. Breakfast is included and has so many options. Definately eat out on the terrace with stunning views of the town. Positano has a lot of stairs in general, which should be expected. Anywhere you go will be a bit of a walk, but nothing crazy. Consider the stairs as you earning your gelato! The keys to the room are old fashioned and when you walk into the large, beatifull, air conditioned room, your first instinct is to go to the balcony. Pay more for the view, it is beyonfd worth it. Large decadent wooden doors open up to your private baclony with comfortable chairs and the view is to die for. You can see the beach and hear the children laughing and playing. You can see nearly all of positano. It's incredible. Now, the room is large and comfortable. The bed is very nice. You also have a large closet, dresser, pleny of outlets to electronics, and a large bathroom with all the amenities. If you visit positano, go here. You will not be dissapointed!

Room Tip: Pay more for the view. Room 22 is faboulous.

Traveling to Positano, you're likely aware of the distance in elevation between everything -- stairs and inclines are in abundance. This hotel is about 75 stairs from the main road, but the climb is well worth the awe-inspiring, amazing view of the water and the town from the patio attached to the room. Beware that the doors don't close behind you and you get locked out! Our car was parked for us, our bags were carried up for us, our morning cappuccinos and espressos were perfect, our beds were turned down nightly, and our restaurant recommendations were all excellent. We had a magical time in Positano, and it was due in part to the wonderful experience we had at Casa Albertina. I would definitely recommend this place to everyone.

A lovely hotel with the most amazing views of the beach and out to sea. Great rooms and breakfast. Friendly staff who go out of their way to be of help. We were two couples travelling together. We stayed for four nights but would have loved to stay longer. Wonderful position in one of the most stunning towns to be found! Surrounded by first class restaurants and shops. Certainly would recommend and look forward to a return trip.

Room Tip: All rooms are amazing with balconies and beautiful views

My wife and I stayed here for 3 nights in early July 2013 and what else can we say but WOW? We had hired a driver from Naples to Positano and had our bags collected and taken up the steps for us by the lovely and helpful porter. We were a little early so wandered through the town for a few hours before returning to have our room ready for us. We were taken up via the lift (a welcome relief when it's warm outside and the steps get to you) and into our room where our bags had already been delivered.

The french doors were opened out onto a balcony with chairs and a table - and we stood overlooking the amazing view of Positano. It was simply breathtaking. The room was large and well furnished, with amazing air-conditioning. The bathroom was also large, with a bath that included spa-jets and incredible bath sheets (they were huge) and amenities.

A great simple breakfast with everything you need to get the day started, we thoroughly enjoyed sitting on the balcony with cappucino, breakfast, overlooking town and the beach, planning our day ahead.

All of the staff are so friendly, helpful & knowledgeable with any questions you may have - we had such a great stay, we wished we could have stayed longer - don't look elsehwere in Positano, this is the place you need to stay!

Room Tip: Pay more for the balcony room, it's worth every cent.

Had to write a follow up review to rave about their service! we extended our stay in Positano and unfortunately couldn't stay here and had to move hotels. i left my ipad charger at the hotel when we moved. Despite me arranging that I would go and fetch it at some point (the hotels were relatively close by but it involved hills and stairs), the charger arrived at the new hotel within the hour neatly wrapped and marked for our attention. Such great service! Thank you Casa Albertina for taking such care and ensuring guests have a great holiday. X
