All the other reviews have said it. Incredible views from the rooms, easy to walk anywhere in town, everyone who works there and especially Maria is professional and you absolutely feel at home. Good breakfast, big rooms, spotless clean. Don't hesitate to reserve here.

Has to be one of the best views in the world. This clean, well-run hotel is about a third of the way up the mountain in Positano and our room (and I think all of them) look directly out at the sea and the town below. Room was large and perfectly charming for the setting with tile floor and high... More

Upon our arrival at Albergo California, we were upgraded to a corner room, which meant we had two spectacular views of the Positano hillside. The hotel is operated by the family who owns it and really goes out of their way to accommodate guests, such as making special arrangements for dinner, recommendations for excursions and day trips, extra towels, pillows...

The view from my room was amazing. Maria (the owner) gave great suggestions on where to eat and attractions to visit. I was there for Cooking Vacations - which I highly recommend. The only reason I didn't give this a perfect score was because of the bed. (Does anyone know why all European beds have such hard mattresses?) Breakfast each... More

My husband and I stayed in Albergo California on our honeymoon and loved it. The location was an easy walk to everything and the owner, Maria, was a delight! She checked with us daily to make sure we had everything we needed. She actually asked us "Are you happy? Is everything good?" She was a wonderfully sweet representative of Positano.... More

Where to begin? From the moment you walk up the steps to the veranda you are captivated by the beauty of the flora and the views!! The place is spotless. You can't believe the view from your room. Breakfast on the veranda is hard to explain. You will not want to leave but if you do,ask Maria or Maria (grandma-granddaughter).They... More

It had 2 bathrooms, an anti room for the children with 2 single beds and the master bed room which had a vaulted, frescoed ceiling!!! the extra bonus.......we had no children with us so a bathroom each!!

Maria and her family treated all their guests like family. they could not do enough to make everyone's stay more comfortable. I felt like I was staying at someone's house instead of a hotel.
