We couldn't have been any happier with or stay at Albergo California. The pictures DO NOT do this place justice. A gorgeous facility with spacious and clean rooms, and an absolute PERFECT location with the best views of Positano. The costs per night are very inexpensive for the Amalfi! Every time I stood out on our balcony, I felt like... More

We had a most memorable view of Positano from our own room and balcony at Albergo California. The rooms are and bathrooms are big and very clean. This establishment is run by a wonderful family and all were willing to ensure your satisfaction is met at every interaction. The buffet breakfast has a lot of choices and you can also... More

My wife and I stayed in hotel California for our honeymoon and we can't speak highly enough of the place. It is a family run hotel and all the staff were absolutely fantastic, very friendly and helpful. Just lovely people. The hotel itself is lovely, very clean, well kept. We stayed in room number 58 (a superior double I think)... More

My wife and I spent ten nights in five different hotels in the Amalfi Coast at the beggining of July 2016. This was probably the cheapest of the hotels we stayed at but gave the best value for the money when it comes to service. The hotel is owned by the Cinque family and they are very friendly and serviceminded.... More

My husband and I stayed at Albergo California at the end of May. It was the second stop on our trip around Italy and was the perfect place for some rest and relaxation after a busy week of sightseeing. I'm so grateful that I stumbled upon this place as we were planning our trip. Under The Tuscan Sun is one... More

We had the most amazing stay at Albergo California and would return in a heartbeat. Three days wasn't enough... I wish we'd had three weeks! The staff were so very friendly and helpful. Everything is within walking distance - bring comfy shoes... it's a workout! The room was spacious and traditional style, the balcony had the most breathtaking views -... More

The family who runs this place is gracious. The location is perfect. Close enough to walk to the center of things and just outside of the congestion of traffic. The views are spectacular and the rooms are fabulous. We were in the "old" section which had very high ceilings and a veranda overlooking the Mediterranean Sea. When we return to... More

After a couple of weeks on the go in the northern Italian cities we were looking forward to relaxing in Positano. We were greeted warmly and shown to our room and we were blown away ! A huge traditional Italian room with a breathtaking view for us to wake up to each morning. Room is great, location is perfect (not... More

Room with a balcony was excellent. Nice balcony, felt safe and secure. Lots of space in the room to spread out. Cool architectural detail within the room. Deep bathtub was a little tough to step out of but really nothing to complain about. Staff really worked hard to insure you enjoyed your stay. Food was not excellent but definitely good.... More

Perhaps the best kept secret in Positano . This marvellous hotel is run by a genuine and caring family and their trusted staff . The view from the vast breakfast deck is breathtaking especially at night when the steep Positano cliffs are lit up with the lights of hundreds of quaint houses . Situated as far up the hill as...
