We loved our stay here! Room 59 on the Top floor had an incredible view. The location - high up on the hill - gives it that postcard view that many other hotels would not. The staff was very helpful with recommendations, setting up cab service when needed, and holding our luggage after check-out while we stayed the rest of... More

Alberto California Positano hotel has the best view of Positano. All the rooms have small balcony overlooking the sea. The room and the bathroom are old. The hotel needs major facelift. Very basic simple breakfast. Extra charges for eggs. The hotel should consider to eliminate charging guests for eggs at breakfast. That's not a good practice.

This was a wonderful stay for my wife and me. Spent 3 nights in room 55 which has it own patio off the main terrace. Room was fantastic, spa tub was fantastic each afternoon and the bed was a real king size. John and his relatives run a nice operation. Indoor parking, good breakfast, any special coffee you may think... More

My husband and I stayed in Positano for four nights at this gorgeous hotel. We couldn't have asked for a more beautiful view of Positano and the beach from our view on the terrace. The croissants at breakfast where absolutely mouthwatering. Thank you for the hospitality!

Amazong view but poor in every other sdpect. Big room but decoration from the 60's. But worst- no proper closet, no place to put things at the bathroom. Breakfast is very very basic and you have to pay extra for eggs, discent coffees ect... We paid extra money for fresh orange juice , but at the first day we got... More

Very hospitable welcome. We were in Positano for a wedding with family group so lots of comings and goings; late nights and dressing up. The hotel staff took all in their stride and were always pleasant and helpful. Thanks!

We really enjoyed our stay at the Hotel California. The room and bathroom were large and well kept with views of the sea from the balcony. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The patio was overlooking the sea too. It was a relaxing place to stay in Positano.

The location is great, the view is amazing and the staff is very nice. Apart from that, this hotel is normal. The breakfast is alright, but you have to pay extra for even eggs. The bed wasn't very comfortable and the walls are quite thin. However, that view....

I bring small groups to Italy and have stayed here many times. I would not stay anywhere else! The rooms are spacious with amazing sea views, breakfast on the terrace is probably going to be the best part of your day and the family/staff are truly the most wonderful people! Everyone is so nice and makes you feel at home... More
