This is run by locals who do everything in their power to make your stay comfortable, restful, and worth the trip. They have parking on site, which if you are driving to Positano is very important. Convenient to everything worth seeing in Positano.

Hotel California in Positano was a great hotel, in a very expensive Amalfi Coast... The owners of the hotel are very friendly and always willing to help. They offer beach towels complimentary which is very generous. The breakfast is not fantastic but does have a wonderful view over Positano. We had a room on the 3rd floor with a magical... More

The hotel is not a 5 star luxury hotel, but it is simply charming. The views are incredible and the service is outstanding. Maria and John were extremely helpful and went out of their way to make our stay one of the most enjoyable experiences. We stayed for 3 nights (Aug 23-25, 2014) and didn't want to leave. We had...

Hotel-Albergo California, where you never want to leave! Wonderful staff. Maria and Giuseppe were gracious and ever smiling. Views simply out of this world. Be sure to book rooms on upper floors, with private balconies. Our stay in July was simply magical!

We had a fantastic stay at Albergo California Positano. The family-run establishment is very welcoming, and the service they provide is excellent. They were always available to answer questions, provide suggestions, and make reservations, which made for a wonderful holiday. We spent four nights, the first two nights in a ground floor room (beautiful views, just a little less privacy)... More

We found this Hotel in Positano by chance as we were a bit price conscious and could easily have paid twice as much per night and maybe have gained a... More

Our room had a small balcony with one of the most amazing views I have ever seen in my life, not all hotels are... More
