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

The minute we got off that amazing bus ride from sorrento we relaxed, stood back and soaked in that amazing view!!!!! Positano is probably the prettiest place I have ever seen (a hard call with what I've seen in Italy and other countries). When coming from sorrento definitely get off at the second bus stop. The hotel is only 50m... More

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!

Just returned from a 5 night stay at the Hotel California. We are a family of 4 & after some initial confusion about the booking we were settled into a 3rd floor room with a balcony. The room was comfortable& had amazing views of Positano. The staff of the family run hotel was helpful, professional, & friendly. All of the... More
