The location was perfect overlooking the beach and cliffs of the gorgeous little city. Drinking a spritz from the hotel bar on the front is heavenly when the sun sets. The owner was very friendly as was the chap who helped us with luggage and our car (which is expensive to park, €20 per day but worth it when you...

My husband and I stayed here for our honeymoon whilst travelling around Europe. We loved it!! We arrived in Positano from Rome and were already in love with the place just from the road into it! Positano is a delightful town full of character - you get the feeling that the locals are very proud of the town (as they...

A friend who comes here every year shared this secret with us and we can see why she keeps on returning. The town is everything they tell you but the experience of being there reveals that words are inadequate. The family-run Hotel California is relaxed, friendly and brimming with charm. Helpful, attentive staff happily enrich your stay with conversations about...

Beautiful and clean hotel with amazing views of the sea and Positano. The room was spacious and the views from the balcony and terrace were breath-taking. The staff was very friendly, and they were helpful in many ways, such as taking the luggage to our room (there is no lift). The breakfast buffet was nice - especially the pastries. The...

Big rooms, comfortable bathrooms with bath and showers Hotel California is a cost effective hotel to stay at. Run by a family you quickly become part of, breakfasts are generous and made onsite. The views are amazing and location is quite central. The only downside is that it doesn't have a lift which could limit you but Gianni is always...

My husband and I returned to stay at this delightful family owned hotel after previously staying there 15 years beforehand. It was still the same wonderful place, with wonderful service, wonderful rooms, wonderful staff, wonderful location and wonderful breakfasts! We arrived early evening to discover when checking in that we had been pick pocketed underneath Naples Railway station while waiting...

We had a nice sized room and stayed for two nights. The best part was our patio overlooking the gorgeous coastline. If you're looking for a nice central location in Positano, with a nice view, this would be a good choice. I would have given it a higher rating if the tub didn't leak and form puddles on our bathroom...

Loved staying at this family owned hotel. The staff was really friendly and helpful. The location and view from our room was superb! The room was very clean and huge. The rooms could use some updating as the bedding, furniture and walls look old fashion. However, the view of the city and the rest of the property are really beautiful....

Pre-paid over a month in advance for a nicer room in the off season (Nov 2016). The room was far from cheap and there was much better off season deals at other hotels. We booked it because of the reviews online, only to have hotel try to get us to pay extra on our arrival to be in the room...

We stayed five nights at the Hotel California, and enjoyed every minute of our time there. The minute we walked into our very spacious and very clean room and took in the view from the balcony, we were hooked. As the room also has a fridge, it was great to be able to buy our own bottle of wine and...
