I stayed at B&B Mamma Rosa for 3 nights in Sept. 2012 and have nothing but great compliments. At first I was worried that the location was a bit too far off from the town center- Mamma Rosa is located in Montepertuso, which is technically like a town next to Positano's main center. However upon arrival and seeing the magnificent view from our room I actually felt a bubble of affection for my boyfriend who made the reservations for this place :-) The 200 steps leading to Mamma Rosa was definitely worth it! (If you're travelling by car, I would advise bringing an overnight bag to carry the stuff you immediately need, and leave the rest in the car)
The host, Melania, was very kind,helpful, and also very good at English. She introduced us to a great restaurant nearby named Il Ritrovo, whose octopus appetizer was so good we went there twice in 3 days. The B&B is very cozy and makes one feel at home, rather than a hostel. The bathroom although not ensuite, is right across the hall from our room and was also very clean with plenty of hot water, which I find important. Melanie only takes two groups of guests at a time (there are 2 rooms & 2 bathrooms), so you can enjoy a quiet stay.
It was simply the best choice for seeing Positano and other nearby towns like Amalfi, Ravello, etc. The town center can be easily arrived by the town bus- for those who enjoy a quiet atmosphere I highly recommend Mamma Rosa.
