Reviewed 27 October 2013

We enjoyed our stay at Hotel California very much! Due to a mix-up with our preference request, we ended up staying in three different rooms. The hotel staff tried their best to make up for the mix-up and were successful! All three of the rooms were delightful. They were all very spacious with wonderful views from each of the balconies. Johnny, Maria, Antonio, Renato and the ladies at breakfast were wonderfully attentive to our needs. We very much enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend to other travelers to Positano.

Room Tip: 2nd and 3rd Floor rooms offer better view, more privacy.

My wife and I recently stayed at the Albergo California during our 10 day trip to Italy. We loved the setting of this hotel. Our room on the second floor was decorated simple in pastel colors. We had a great view and the staff was very accommodating during our stay. We enjoyed Bruno's restaurant that was only several steps away for dinner. We definately plan to return to Positano and this is where we plan to stay! Ciao!

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the second or third floor for the best view and less noise from the cars driving b...

What a wonderful experience we had the staff were amazing and the hotel was spotless we felt like we were the only guests staying there. nothing was ever too much trouble they were always there on hand to help with any questions that we had. you will look hard and long to find a hotel like this in such a beautiful setting. well worth looking at the website and if you are heading to positano this is a must stay for sure.

We also stayed in rome at a sheraton and were sadly unimpressed but thats another review.

Room Tip: we had room 67 was huge and the best view with not too many steps to climb

Room was spacious and spotless, as was the bathroom.
Staff were all very friendly and helpful. We even met the owner who came and introduced herself at breakfast.
Spectacular views.
Good restaurant just next door and handy to the bus stops.
Town centre is only a short walk away, but plenty of stairs.
We were on the ground floor and found it very noisy. Between the road and the inconsiderate guests who have to talk at the top of their voices regardless of the time of day as they pass by the rooms. We barely slept whilst there.

Room Tip: Ground floor is noisy, but you can get the free WiFi there.

Family run establishment in a great location, not cheap but what is in Positano. This was our second visit, rooms are pleasant all with breathtaking views. But you don't stay there for the breakfast best to seek other options in that regard.

Located almost in the middle of everything in Positano, the views are incredible .
The rooms are spacious and spotless, with all basic amenities including AC. They also provide parking (provided) that you request it at the time of reservation, this is important since is impossible to get a parking spot in this town.
Included breakfast is basic, but nice ( bread, pastries, fruit, coffee).
The hotel is run by a very nice family, who are always willing to help.
Absolutely recommended
