That's always the first reaction people have when they stand on the terrace of the Hotel California looking towards the sea. We have stayed here twice and loved it both times. It's clean, comfortable and the views to die for. Although Maria is less visible these days, the rest of the Cinque family continue with the same personal service. They...

Easy stroll down to all the shops and restaurants. Breakfast was great! Nice cappuccino's! Wonderful view once again! Nice flowers all over the balcony. Very clean hotel! Room(60) was very spacious...big...

Mu husband & I stayed here for 2 nights in June 2011. The location is fantastic with amazing views. Rooms are comfortable and clean. Not super high end hotel (a little dated), but nice. Hotels are really expensive in Positano, so this was not breaking the bank & still enjoyable. It is 2 min away from the bus stop, very...

This is fantastic location with perfect hosts. The views are unbelievable.Big clean rooms that have all you need. We were in the lower floor spa room and had a private balcony. Perfect to sit outside with a bottle of wine from the service station up the road. Other lower floor rooms aren't as private and I would avoid them. It's...

Not super high end but very very comfortable facility. Maria and her family are very proud and it shows in their enthusiasm. Only thing to take into consideration is that resturant recommendations i feel are...

Albergo California definitely made Positano for us. The views (of the town, the beautiful blue sea, the beach and the surrounding hills) from the rooms and the breakfast/bar terrace are wonderful. Our spacious comfortable room had its own adjacent terrace which was perfect for our 'private' breakfast and pre-dinner drinks with the rest of our party who were staying in...

Had a wonderful stay. Family run. Son John and Mama Maria made us feel right at home. The views from the room balcony were priceless. Nice covered patio area for breakfast and to just hang out and enjoy in view.

Hands down, the *best* service we received from a hotel all throughout Italy. Maria and her family treated us like family--so friendly, caring, and genuine. They truly made our stay in Positano one to never forget. I could ramble on about the amazing view from our room, the terrace where we drank our afternoon wine or ate or morning breakfast,...

We stayed at California for 3 nights in May 2011. The room was the cleanest I've ever seen at a hotel. Everything was spotless. The room was very spacious, high ceiling and beautiful tiled floor. But of course, the main feature was an amazing view! The staff were very friendly, my husband had an ear infection and they got their...
