We still can't believe this is only a three-star hotel -- the views were breathtaking, the rooms were spacious, comfortable and pristine with giant balconies equipped with chairs to sit and take in the view, the breakfast was delicious, the terrace was wrapped in vines growing grapes and lemons, the staff was extraordinarily friendly and helpful, the breakfast was delicious,...

This hotel is beautiful! We stayed there for our honeymoon and couldn't have asked for a better location and setting. Our balcony had one of the best views I've ever seen and it was perfect! The staff was very welcoming and we would definitely come back. Thank you!

Loved our time at this place. From the initial impression with the porter ready to help with our bags, the daily room service, the amazing view from the balcony on the top floor. It's small and friendly and more like a b&b rather than a hotel. Main gripe as others have said was the poor wi-fi. Breakfast was very good... More

This hotel exceeding my expectations! The location is unbeatable, we commented several times how it could not have been in a more perfect location. Very close walking distance to the main square, shopping and the beach. The hotel is exceptionally clean! No scuff marks on the walls, no mildew in the bathroom. The staff was courteous and set us up... More

We stayed at the Hotel Albergo California for three days at the beginning of August. It is in a great location with a beautiful view of the water! It is an older and dated hotel (more like a B & B) but it has everything you need. The staff is friendly and helpful. Anytime we needed anything we just called... More

So the background screen on my laptop is the view from this hotel! I splurged and decided I HAD to stay here. It was the most expensive place on my stay, but the people couldn't have been kinder and more hospitable. The breakfast was fine, the view out of the ball park. I sat on the balcony and ate treats...

We stayed at Albergo California in October 2014 for the first leg of our honeymoon, and I can't recommend it more highly! The staff was lovely and incredibly helpful from start to finish - from emailing us when we booked about 10 months before our trip, to arranging a car to and from the train station, to recommending restaurants and...

We stayed 3 nights here and loved the hotel. We had our own terrace and the most amazing view down into the bay. Absolutely spectacular! It is family run and the staff are super friendly and very helpful. Breakfast is served on the terrace with just stunning views. Valet parking was included which was great 'cos if you've been to...

Researching our first trip to Italy, I was overwhelmed with the choices in Positano. Looking at a map, I was worried that this was a little further from the "center" of things than some others. What I realized when we got there is how small the town is, and that this spot was perfect. We were delighted to be given... More
