You will love your stay here! The rooms are fantastic...large and well appointed with the most amazing views of Positano. The large terrazzo lining the front of the hotel is filled with greenery (we found a wee lemon on the lemon tree) and is a wonderful place for pre-dinner cocktails or a bottle of wine after dinner. Breakfast is also... More

We spent six days in October at Albergo California and can recommend it highly. It is a relatively small hotel in a handsome old villa with a modern addition. It is family run and the proprietor and staff are friendly and efficient and speak good English. We were pleased with their recommendations for restaurants, etc. The hotel is well located... More

This is the hotel we always stay at when in Positano. Unfortunately we could only stay five nights this time. As it has always been; the hotel was spotless and the staff outstanding. The breakfast menu has expanded since our last visit and it was a nice surprise. We had room 61 again. In our opinion, it is the best... More

We enjoyed our stay at Hotel California very much! Due to a mix-up with our preference request, we ended up staying in three different rooms. The hotel staff tried their best to make up for the mix-up and were successful! All three of the rooms were delightful. They were all very spacious with wonderful views from each of the balconies....

My wife and I recently stayed at the Albergo California during our 10 day trip to Italy. We loved the setting of this hotel. Our room on the second floor was decorated simple in pastel colors. We had a great view and the staff was very accommodating during our stay. We enjoyed Bruno's restaurant that was only several steps away... More

Room was spacious and spotless, as was the bathroom. Staff were all very friendly and helpful. We even met the owner who came and introduced herself at breakfast. Spectacular views. Good restaurant just next door and handy to the bus stops. Town centre is only a short walk away, but plenty of stairs. We were on the ground floor and... More
