... I was back in elementary school and they had signed up to be our chaperones for the day. They explored even more ruins by finally making it to Pompeii on Saturday. I unfortunately couldn’t make it with them on this trip as I was battling a cold all week and desperately needed some time to sleep. I was very impressed with their abilities to get on the train, purchase the tickets, and discover a whole town of ruins ...
... on a colourful tile, and there were fruit trees clinging tho the cliffs as well. It had a very Mediterranean feel, white homes, steep cliffs, and blue blue water. One on the sand and quite warm from our walk, we decided we had to go for a swim. Here was our beach and despite having no towels, and no change of clothes we couldn’t walk away without swimming. We had put on our swimmer sin the morning, all except Ro, so at least were half ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Casa Albertina Positano
Can't beat the view
My friends and I had booked Casa Albertina as a third choice, almost all accomodations were gone for June 05. We were pleasantly surprised that our stay was most enjoyable.
We did not dine there, so I'm not sure about the food, but the staff was fantastic and always friendly. The accomodations were fair in that the beds are small and old and the bathrooms definitely need updating, but on the other hand, the view can't be beat! I don't have anyplace else to compare it to - but the view - the view! From our balcony we had a vista of the entire town and could enjoy evenings sipping wine and sitting back.
Be careful - many many steps! The porter will bring your bags up, but you have to make it up and down those steps many times a day - good exercise if you're up for it!
I recommend this hotel to anyone who wants to enjoy Positano and what it has to offer, but not spend a fortune on accommodations. The Casa Albertina is not as posh as the Hotel San Il Pietro or the La Sirenuse, but it was charming and had better views I thought. Hotel personnel were friendly and helpful, and the facilities were above average. My friend and I do not regret staying here - we paid €150 per night for the hotel and had extra to spare to travel to the nearby towns and drink and dine at the expensive hotels in Positano and Ravello!
My husband and I took our first trip to Italy the end of May to the beginning of June. We searched the internet for a nice place to stay, crossing our fingers the whole time. We were very impressed with the prestine room at Casa Albertina with two wonderful views of Positano from the bathroom and balcony. We met a few other couples at Casa Albertina who return each year because they believe it's the best place to stay.
Casa Albertina was PERFECT! This flatlander wasn't used to the initial hike to get there, but soon came to enjoy it. We used local porters to bring our luggage up from the dock (we came by sea). Our room was large and very charming with the most beautiful view in all of Positano! Some friends were staying higher at a bigger hotel (Villa Franca) and had a small room and not as good a view. There isn't a bar or a pool - but that was fine with us. It has a wonderful roofdeck and patio that no one used. We got local wine and lemoncello from the market and served ourselves on our balcony. We were low enough where we fell asleep and woke up to the sound of the waves on the shore. It's a family run hotel with owners who know everyone and can tell you everything about Positano. It was so centrally located that you can go higher to explore or go lower to the beach without much trouble. I wouldn't have stayed anywhere else and will only stay at Casa Albertina when I go back!
We loved our room at the Casa Albertina, and the service was the most responsive I've ever seen. We got the room that is featured in their folders and on their web site -- room 31. I'd recommend it highly. It's a nice large corner room with a roomy bathroom that features a jacuzzi tub and a window that looks out across the ravine to the other side of the oceanfront. I loved sitting in the tub sipping limoncello and watching the lights come on as the sun went down.
From the moment we'd stepped off the Sita Bus in Positano we knew we hadn't made a mistake in staying there for a week. We didn't know that from that point it was going to get even better until we walked up the charming stairs to Casa Albertina. We were greeted by Lorenzo Cinque with a smile and then brought to our room to relax after our long journey from Florence. Upon walking into our simple but very pleasant room, Daniele open the grand terrace doors to reveal the heavenly view of Positano, and the Mediterranean sea..
1 star facilities in a 3 star hotel at a 5 star price. The staff and views are great ( so they should be - it's 430 steps up from the beach) but the accommodation and breakfasts are poor. The bathroom was dated and dirty, a shower curtain and bathmat that look like they are laundered once a season. Balconies have the cheapest plastic chairs money can buy, and all the flowers shown on the website have been removed. Breakfast very ordinary, bread and jam, with german pate sachets that looked like catfood. All very disappointing for 210 Euros per night.
One of my cherished memories of the Amalfi coast is of the Casa Albertina, and particularly the host family, the Cinques, with their gracious service. The room was clean and simple, with tile floors typical of the area, the food was wonderful and the view was outstanding from our balcony.
A Room with a View
This must be one of the best values in Positano. As the prior reviewer stated, it is quite a climb up the stairs to the hotel. But then, if you are adverse to stairs in general, you might want to avoid Positano altogether!!
The view from the rooms and the balconies is beyond compare. Sit outside with a glass of wine at sunset. The view is of both the ocean and of the town. Magnificent. The hotel is charming and wonderful and the service is very, very good.
The Casa Albertina is a gem of a hotel. You have to be willing to climb many steps to it - but there is a willing porter. It's not luxury - the rooms are simple but very clean and attractive -but the moment when you open the shutters and look out across Positano from your balcony must be one of the most memorable of any holiday. It's high enough to give as spectacular a view as I've seen from any hotel anywhere.
