“FABULOUS!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 4, 2012

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!

Dear traveller

We took so much time to write this review as we are so busy in our jobs and travels but at least we found some time now

We spent 2 weeks last June 2011 on the Almafi coast, visiting the most beautiful part of the world.
We started a trip in Napoli, then Sorento, Capri and finished in Positano.

We stayed in Casa Cosenza where I celebrated my birthday with a broken foot as my husband drove into a wall with his scooter and toe got a bit bent!

Anyway, despite this little incident, our stay in Positano was just magical, Josephine is so nice and like a "mum", always there to help and listen, you wouldn't think you are in a hotel but a family house which it is originally.
The room are just amazing, really clean, with amazing sea view and Positano old town view.

You really think you are in a film and I have already imagined myself leaving here and teaching yoga if I could..

The breakfast is served in the room, it's simple and nice, especially if you have a terrace as you can eat your breakfast and watch the Positano wake up.

We cannot thank enough Josephine and Alice for their kindness and help during our stay.

We highly recommend this place, forget the big hotels and other chains, go to Casa Cosenza and you will always come back.its very good value for money, in this expensive Part of the world but certainly the best one!

Tip: make sure you travel to Ravella to visit Villa Cimbrone and Villa Rufollo, just amazing garden and views..

Book a room with a sea view or even an apartment if you have a family, they are amazing.

Casa Cosenza provides a view that is out of this world. Couple this with the friendly staff, great rooms with air con and you have the making's of a great stay in Positano.

The price of the rooms with an adjoining balcony is very well priced and central to the town below and restaurants above.

Watch the sunset on your balcony with a beer...simply awesome.

Room Tip: Go for a room with a balcony as it is so worth it...the view is great, you're in the sunshine to...

I really dont want to share our find in Positano as I feel I want to keep Josephine and her wonderful b&b all to myself.......BUT........if you want a truely wonderful experience...with a little bit of love.....then stay here! We had Room 7 and stayed a week....with a huge terrace overlooking the church and beach....and just loved every moment. Josephine is such a gem. If you want to hit the beach...then make sure you take the boat (driven by the very cute Adriano).....to Arienzo Beach.
