We arrived earlier than expected so we were offered a cappuccino on the terrace while our room was finished - didn't take long. Wow! what a terrace as you can see from the photos. A very nice breakfast was included in our rate & served on the terrace each day of our 3 night stay. If you want a cooked breakfast - eggs etc there is a charge...we had just come from a big hotel/full breakfast in Sorrento so we were happy with a lighter breakfast anyway. I liked the way they served tea in a pot with a heated cup - something I missed since leaving home a few weeks ago. On the subject of breakfast, on our final day we were being picked up at 630 am (flight from Naples)...when finalising the bill the night before, we mentioned leaving early. So when we came onto terrace at 615, the owner of the hotel was there to offer us tea/coffee/toast/croissant &/or anything else we had time for (fruit etc) a generous gesture as breakfast didn't start until 7. The room itself was lovely; sort of homely in an old-fashioned way but with modern white linen/towels. Like many similar hotels - shower curtain/no gowns so expect nice/clean etc but not v upmarket. What we did love was the balcony - gorgeous view & room to actually sit...unlike other hotels in Europe. Like most other hotels, no tea/coffee making facility so that was only thing we missed a little (most Australian hotels have that); nice when you have a balcony. I think all rooms have a view. We compared the prices of hotels in Positano and this one, while still comparatively expensive to other parts of the world, Albergo California was a good find - more affordable, unpretentious & excellent service. Many thanks to the family and all the staff, we will recommend your hotel to our friends and family.
