These guys are not just going through the motions....they provide genuine engagement. It's a family business since 1917 and you notice care and attention to detail all around the hotel. We will be back.

My husband and I just returned from a week on the Amalfi Coast that included 3 nights at the Hotel Albergo California. It had come recommended by our tour company and met every one of our expectations. From the moment we entered until the time we left, everything was just wonderful. Our room was large and immaculate. The staff was... More

A beautiful hotel with excellent staff, friendly and efficient. The view from the hotel was amazing overlooking the coast line. The rooms were comfortable and sea facing. It was lovely to sit in the balcony and people watch. I would definitely stay in this hotel should I return to Positano.

Amazing views. I felt my possessions including laptop were safe in the room. The breakfast terrace looks out onto the amalfi coast which is stunning. Only critique would be of the breakfast, which is average but what one would expect at this price. The Wi-Fi was slow at peak times, to the point where it became difficult to check e-mails.... More

We fell in love with Positano before we got there and it did not disappoint! But the Albergo California just topped it off, it is a lovely hotel with excellent staff, so friendly, so efficient we could not ask for more. The room was lovely, being able to sit out on the balcony & just gaze at the fantastic view,... More

Stay at Hotel California during the second week of September for 5 nights. The views from our second floor room were spectacular, Wow! Positano is a gorgeous little town and the hotel is almost perfectly placed in the middle of it. The rooms were large and very clean. The host family was very gracious, especially Maria and Antonio. The SITA... More

I stayed here with a friend in late August. The hotel was really fantastic. It is perfectly located so that you can walk down the hill to the beach or one or two blocks up the hill to the bus that goes to the other towns. The hotel rooms are spacious and clean. We stayed on the second floor and... More

Such a diamond in the rough in the very expensive and over priced but lovely Positano. The staff, Maria, Guissepe and John were wonderful. Small 15 room family run business. They work hard. Room 58 was large with huge nearly wrap Around terrace. Old, Mediterranean style, very simple and sufficient. We had a very early morning bus to catch, before... More
