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

The views from the hotel and each room are spectacular. The location is good, with a 10 minute walk down to the beach, noting its a good climb on the way back up but this is the same in all of Positano. There is a great restaurant next door (Bruno's) and the best bar I've ever been to across the... More

This was our 2nd visit (The 1st 2 summers ago) the quality and service is as impeccable as before. The rooms are spotless, decorated in a simple Italian style, white linens, colorful tiled floors. We had a lower floor room than before, as the hotel was sold out, but we still had a view of the sea. Situated in the... More

Stayed here for 4 nights, and loved it: the service was exceptional. I did not know beforehand that it featured in a movie ("Under the Tuscan Sun") and according to Google my wife and I had the very same room featured in the film (room 62). If you search using the movie title and the hotel name you'll find several... More

Hi All, Just finished my stay in Positano and this was our place of residance for 5 days. The location of this hotel is superb. It is located mid height above Positano and will take you about 5 minutes to walk down to the centre/beach. Walking up is however, a bit of a mission even for the fittest so this... More
