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

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.
