Perfect location, amazing view, the super nice staff helped me with complex logistic arrangements to enjoy at the fullest the path of gods walk, the reason of my journey. Good breakfast in the morning with several home made cakes and a la carte selection on a beautiful terrace.

The staff is very friendly, every single person was so nice. I often had questions for suggestions and they were very helpful. They helped me with restaurant reservations, with... More

Our room was stunning and to be honest if you know Positano there is nothing you can complain about because the breathtaking view makes everything okay. The location is perfect, high enough to appreciate the vista and low enough for a wander through the lanes to the beach. our room was traditionally furnished in keeping with the rest of the... More

We just spent 4 nights at this hotel and had a wonderful experience not to mention the amazing views of the Mediterranean and the town of Positano. Everybody was extremely helpful and ready to assist with anything we needed. The location is perfect, within minutes of the city centre but far enough removed from the noise at night. Highly recommend... More

This hotel was beautiful with the freshest fruit and amazing meals...breakfast was our favorite but so was lunch when we made it back. Since Positano is so narrow and steep staying Albergo California was an oasis and cozy. Such an beautiful trip shopping along the way to the beach. There is no other place like it.

Stayed for two nights in August. Hotel is in great location half way up the hill. Large rooms with stunning views over Positano. Great friendly staff who really care about their guests. Able to answer all our questions and set us right with regard to enabling us to get to walk the Path of the Gods.

Great hotel, family run and very friendly staff. Large clean rooms with balconies looking over the ocean and Positano hillside, perfect place to stay in a very good location. Breakfast was ok, coffee machine not good (tasted awful) but the verandah where breakfast was served was lovely with great views. Definitely recommend to stay at this hotel
