Having just arrived home from an amazing wedding of one of our best friends daughters in the beautiful town of Positano ,we felt we must write this glowing report asap.

We found this Hotel in Positano by chance as we were a bit price conscious and could easily have paid twice as much per night and maybe have gained a swimming pool but apart from that everything else was down to our liking.

The position is ideal for all the activities in the town and the boat quay is a 10 min down hill walk ( be warned everything in Positano is up hill or down hill!).

The room was a very good size and I think as others have mentioned the higher the better, certainly from the amazing view perspective, we had room 59 and could not have been happier.

And lastly we must mention the staff who without exception were helpful friendly and always went that one extra mile,our room was beautifully serviced each day ,our breakfast whilst not being too extensive was served on the terrace ,and of course the reception often manned by Maria the younger was always available for travel advise and local knowledge.

Well done Albergo California !!

My partner and I stayed at Albergo California for 4 nights in June 2014. This hotel is in an excellent location right near the bus stop and only a 10 minute walk down to the beach. Our room had a small balcony with one of the most amazing views I have ever seen in my life, not all hotels are in the right position for this view so I would highly recommend staying here. The service was great, they really made us feel so welcome. The rooms are very spacious with good sized bathrooms. Breakfast was really nice, served on the open balcony again with a stunning view and you can order bacon and eggs if you prefer a hot breakfast. I will be recommending this hotel to everyone I know and we will definitely stay here again when we return to Positano.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on a high floor at the front of the hotel so that you get the view.

We stayed here for 3 nights while we were in Positano for a wedding. This is absolutely the most wonderful place to visit and stay. The hotel stayed made the entire trip even more wonderful. There are great views, easy walk to everything needed, so relaxing and the staff were so friendly and helpful. They were always willing to help us with anything we needed. The room are beautiful, clean and amazing.

My husband and I stayed here for four nights in August. The hotel is in a wonderful location - just a short walk from the bus station, beach , and main area of town. The staff is exceptional-they go above and beyond to make you feel at home as well as give excellent recommendations and directions. My husband and I even missed breakfast one morning and were still welcomed with cappuccinos

and croissants. We really felt at home here and loved the beautiful view and balcony. I noticed that our balcony (room 58) was larger and more private (corner room) than the others. A spacious balcony is necessary in Positano, so request room 58!
A few things that could be improved:
The wifi was very weak,which made using the internet nearly impossible.
The beds were horribly uncomfortable.
Overall, a wonderful hotel with an exceptional staff. Thank you for a wonderful stay!

We were very happy with our stay in Positano at the Hotel California. The staff were exceptionally welcoming and friendly. They were very helpful in giving suggestions for things to do and interested in what we were up to each day. We had two beautiful rooms on the third floor and the view was exceptional. The rooms are clean, large and comfortable. We enjoyed the balcony each evening to take in the sights and sounds of the town, the water, and the occasional singing and music from the restaurant below. We would most definitely recommend this hotel to anyone.

Room Tip: We were very pleased with rooms 59 and 60.
