My husband and I stayed here 3 nights in the end of June. It is a great location since you are a little away from the crowds. We got a room on the 2nd floor with a small balcony and amazing view of Positano! The balcony was a little small. If your neighbor was out on theirs you could have... More

I stayed at Albergo California for three nights and was extremely impressed. It's high enough up the mountain to give you gorgeous views of the coastline but not so high as to make it tedious as you get down to and up from the the beach for activities and the ferry. The hotel staff was courteous, friendly and extremely helpful... More

We stayed at this hotel fr 6 nights and loved every moment - and will definitely return there ! Our room was large, with a terrace overlooking the Amalfi coast - it was living in a dream !! All the hotel staff were very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was plentiful - and the bar was open at any time !!... More

Loved staying here. Great location, amazing views, above and beyond service in a warm family run atmosphere. Gianni is a wonderful person. Patient, helpful, always ready with suggestions on what to do and places to eat. Upon arrival we were shown to our room by his niece Maria and just after checking in we were warmly greeted by the other... More

We had 8 wonderful nights at Hotel California. There was nothing that we asked for that was too much beginning with Gianni welcoming us as we arrived at 2am to check us in and carry our bags to recommending restaurants, assisting us with train and bus timetables and finally getting up at 4am to check out and help us with...

We drove there and as soon as we stopped we were greeted and asked if they wanted them to park the car. They did and brought our luggage directly to the room. Check in was fast and friendly. While we were there any questions we had on the area were answered with much information. All of the staff was quite... More

I had a picture in my mind of what I wanted Positano to be and our stay at California Hotel was everything I had dreamed of. Maria in reception was so lovely and helpful and everything ( including restaurant bookings, shuttles, transfers) was organised without a hitch. If you are unsure about where to stay in Positano, this hotel was... More

We returned to Positano with friends to celebrate our 5th wedding anniversary and this time stayed at Albergo California. The staff were extremely welcoming and helpful, nothing was too much trouble. The rooms were spotlessly clean and very comfortable. Breakfast was lovely taken outside on the terrace overlooking the sea. The only downside was that, probably due to all floors... More
