We stayed 5 nights at the Casa Albertina and we loved it. The hospitality was warm, the room lovely, and the view from the balcony was breathtaking.
Also breathtaking were the climb up from the street below (72 steps) and the extra climb up to the bus-stop on the road above (292 steps). Not to mention the further 332 steps down from the street to the beach. So - not for the mobility-challenged.
The breakfast was generous and delicious.
My only suggestion for possible improvement would be the option of some softer pillows please.

On entering through the grandiose entrance door, go onto one of the many terraces and enjoy the breathtaking view: below you will see the famous “Spiaggia delle Sirene”, and in front, the suggestive ridge of Praiano, while higher still, climbs the “Sentiero degli Dei” where the local christians took refuge during the cruel Saracen invasions. As always, the delightful Cinque family, the owners, will be at hand to ensure your total comfort during this stay in this wonderful hotel set in the mountains perched over the sea. lf you really want to “take in the history” why not ask for the room which at one time, when it was still a typical house of Positano before being transformed into a hotel. ... more less
