If coming from Sorrento by bus hop off at the 2nd stop, and it is a 5 min walk. If coming by boat for sure you'll need to take a cab, I cannot imagine climbing all those stairs with your luggage in hand to the Albergo. We had booked a first floor room and we were glad we upgraded to... More

We loved our stay here, with great views and spacious room with phenom all views. The hotel is an easy walk to the beach and other parts of Positano. The bus stops a little way up the hill so it's easy to connect to Sorrento and the towns of the Amalfi Coast, most importantly, nothing was a problem for the... More

We stayed at this hotel in Positano for 4 glorious nights. We were in Italy for 17 days and this stay was the hi-light of our trip. It essentially provided us a vacation from our vacation. Positano is amazingly charming and beautiful and, staying at this hotel, allows you to take all of that in. We had a car and,... More

We stayed in this hotel for 5 nights and felt very much at home. This is a family run hotel, all the staff I met were most friendly, helpful and provided service beyond my expectations. Our room was clean, had a wonderful view, I couldn't have asked for a better location. There is a fantastic 'non tourist' restaurant downstairs (Da... More

The view on the terrace is espectacular! You can spend so much time just there comfortably admiring the beauty of Positano, relaxing, reading, enjoying a wine or Limoncello. The room was very spacious, clean and comfortable. The staff is very friendly and helps you with anything you need. You can walk just for a few minutes and you are at... More

We stayed here for 5 nights. A truly family run hotel - did I meet anyone who was not family? The staff are just superb. Like being in their own home. I was quite ill when I was there (nothing to do with the hotel!) and their support was superb - doctor, nurse, help and support was excellent! As a... More

We recently stayed for a week at Albergo California in Positano. In every aspect (location, room, staff, and breakfast this hotel is a winner. Our room, on the second floor, was spacious, clean, well cared for, with a wonderful balcony over looking the bay and a mini bar stocked with very reasonably priced refreshments. Everyone on the staff was very... More

The whole staff was amazing and extremely helpful! Family owned, they literally treated us like family. Amazing view of Positano, short walk to the beach, tons of close restaurants and shops. Room was clean, with tons of space. I highly recommend this hotel, I will 100% stay here again in the future!!

When you dream of coming to Positano, you're lured in by the views. You know, the pictures you see on Pinterest, Instagram and postcards. Then, you get here and it's exactly like stepping into one of those pictures. You know that view you saw? That's what you get at Hotel California. Right out on the terrace while having breakfast in... More

We were visiting from Australia and if we can give any advice - you must stay here! We had such a lovely welcoming. The hotel is run by a family - you end up meeting all of them. They are very warm and extremely helpful. No lift but we had the Father or Uncle carry our suitcases up the stairs... More
