Very well situated in positano half way between the town and the bus stop and the views from the 3rd floor rooms are amazing. There are tons of great restaurants within walking distance. Breakfast is basic but does the trick and the staff are friendly...and with free parking its a good choice...

We stayed at this hotel for a week in June. The hotel is a charming old fashioned place run by a family with a long history in the area. They were welcoming and friendly and the staff made our stay very enjoyable. Everyone from the owners to the housekeeping staff and the bar staff were amazingly helpful and cheerful. The... More

We have stayed here as a large family group on two trips to Italy from the United States. We love the owners and their sons, who are a good example of warm and friendly Italians. We miss the breakfasts on the terrace overlooking the ocean, our beautiful room with fabulous views, and the wonderful town of Positano. At night, you... More

Do not stay here if you are female. My teenage daughter and I stayed in this hotel last week (May, 2013). I was downstairs on the terrace, about 5 p.m., just beneath our 2nd floor room, thinking what a great place and value this hotel was. At that same time, our room was being broken into. My 19-year-old daughter was... More

Great experience! Family run hotel with impeccable service and attention to detail. Maria and her team took care of everything and could not have been more helpful, particularly with finding good restaurants at reasonable prices. Hotel California has parking available onsite, which is essential if you are driving to or from Positano. The location of this hotel is perfect for... More

Great service. Great accommodation. We had a room for 4 girls. It was a little awkward with two twin beds up against walls in the center room. There were two rooms and two bathrooms. But it was hard to find a room to accommodate 4 in Positano so we were just happy to find it. It had an excellent view... More

We loved the place. The view from our room was the best we have ever had at any hotel. They have a lovely covered deck that looks out over the town and the water---great place for a coffee or a glass of wine. Nice large and clean rooms. Most helpful staff.

This was a great hotel away from the noise and crowds. Easy to find. Nice rooms with balcony and excellent views. Good house wine. Nice location. You can reserve parking if needed. I would not have made a different choice.
