“Fantastic! Great view and great value!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2012

We had a fantastic stay at Casa Cosenza in mid June. We had reserved the "Romantic Room", and couldn't have been happier. The room was quite large and included a mini fridge and air conditioning. The highlight though is the balcony which provided a spectacular view of Positano and the beach below. One night there was fireworks out on the water and the balcony gave us a sensational eye-level view!

The B&B is located approximately midway up the cliff between the first road above town and the beach below town. No matter which you arrive in Positano, you'll need to be prepared for some steps!

Josephine the host is absolutely amazing. She really does care that you enjoy your stay. We mentioned to her one morning that we were going to hike the Sentiero Degli Dei (which is amazing by the way). After she never saw us later that night she became concerned and actually called the following morning to see if we had returned safely. She and her daughter were also a big help in assisting us to purchase bus tickets from Naples to Bari. They allowed us to use their computer and mobile phone to make the reservation.

The night before our departure, Josephine brought us a gift; 3 giant lemons from her garden! The following morning, she woke up bright and early to deliver us espresso to our room so that we had enough energy to make the hike to the bus stop across town. I simply can't say enough nice things about her or the B&B.

It was absolutely perfect!

Room Tip: Romantic Room has great unobstructed view of beach below

Casa Cosenza is easily one of the best places my wife and I visited during our honeymoon in Italy. Josephine is an incredible hostess and runs a beautiful, clean, centrally located establishment at a very fair price. The value at Casa Cosenza is AMAZING and our room had a huge window facing the magnificent coast. There was a jacuzzi in the bathroom and our room was easily the largest we had stayed in during our entire vacation. Casa Cosenza was not just a place to stay, but a second home for us on the Amalfi Coast. Josephine told us all the best restaurants/places to visit during our stay and couldn't have been more helpful. She genuinely cares and is happiest when her guests are happy. There are not enough great things to say about our stay-everything was absolutely perfect and we are beyond looking forward to come back in the very near future!

This review is long overdue. We came here last September for four nights. Upon arrival we were graciously greeted by the owners. Our room was perfect; spacious (bathroom included), clean, well lit, affordable, and more than we could have asked for. The view from our room was breathtaking. Our balcony was our favorite part of the entire room. The balcony provided a translucent panoramic view of beautiful Positano. Positano is a beautiful place with so much to take in and enjoy; staying at Casa Cosenza was the icing on the cake that just elevated our experience. There you can have as much privacy as you wish or as much company as you want. Salvatore, Josephine, and Ali were amazing. They brought us into their family and made us apart of their lives. They went above and beyond to make our stay remarkable. Their English was superb (far better than our Italian) and were able to answer all of our questions and made reservations to some great restaurants (Da Vincenzo) for us. They even put on an amazing firework display right outside our balcony (for another guests' anniversary). Josephine was so thoughtful and generous to confirm our ride to the train station and woke up exceedingly early to surprise us with amazing cappuccinos and croissants so we were fed before our journey on. We will be staying at Casa Cosenza again. Special thanks to Josephine, Salvatore, and Ali for making our trip amazing.

Where do I begin? Casa Cosenza is a gem, and Josephine was so hospitable and welcoming. We booked our room about 4 months in advance and ended up with a beautiful room (#11) with an enormous private balcony. The moment we stepped into our room (after hiking up 223 stairs- I counted) we were in awe. There was a beautiful mural on the ceiling, a huge CLEAN bathroom and a ton of space. Josephine recommended a great restaurant (Da Vincenzo) which is right up the stairs in the back of the hotel- highly recommend checking it out. We stayed only two nights but wish we could have been there for the duration of our trip. In the future, we have agreed to spend at least a week in Positano at Casa Cosenza. Our whole stay in Positano was absolutely magical and we believe this hotel was in the perfect location with an amazing view of both sea and town. We couldn't have asked for anything better. Josephine let us keep our luggage in the lobby for a few hours our last day there which was very helpful. Definitely stay in room number 11, it will blow you away! WE LOVE YOU JOSEPHINE!

My wife and I spent 3 nights at Casa Cozensa and absolutely loved it. We selected Casa Cozensa based on a friend's recommendation and all the positive reviews here on Trip Advisor. Josephine (the owner) is very sweet and accommodating - all to ensure each guest had a wonder time while there. Josephine provided restaurant recommendations, provided us with an electric plug adaptor, and always greeted us by name - something that speaks volume of the hospitality. Our room was beautiful with plenty of room and a view to die for. The bathroom was nice and large, which is unique for many hotels in Europe. The private patio was incredible, as we would always enjoy some wine, paninis, and peronis while taking in the views - morning, afternoon, and night.

If we ever return to Positano, Casa Cosenza will be getting a call!

Room Tip: Get a patio, it's certainly worth the extra euros

Positano is beautiful and so is the Casa Cosenza! We had such a wonderful and relaxing time and will never stay anywhere else in Positano! The staff was amazing and friendly and I highly recommend that you stop in at the cafe Positano located at the top of the stairs. The beds are comfortable and the rooms are very cozy and they all have a balcony.

Room Tip: All of the rooms have a beautiful view

We have just spent a wonderful week staying at the excellent casa cosenza. Our sizeable room and balcony overlooked the basilica, the beach and sea - just an amazing view making it so hard to leave each day. Josephine is a delightful and caring hostess, always there to offer suggestions and help and the presentation of her accommodation is outstanding. We highly recommend this small hotel for so many reasons not the least of which is value for money.

Room Tip: All rooms are great with nice balconies - you can't go wrong!
