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...

Being surrounded some amazing restaurants and bars literally across the street, the view from the Windows, the grape vines on the verandah and of course John and his amazing family and staff.

From the minute we arrived until we left, we felt welcomed by the Cinque family. The room was large and clean, had a beautiful view and very convenient to restaurants and shopping area. My husband and I highly recommend this hotel, and will definitely stay there again on our return to Positano. Silvio & Nancy

Right outside the hotel gets you...

Our hotel experience at Albergo California Positano began with the owners greeting us as we climbed the few steps to the lovely balcony overlooking quintessential Positano. The staff are exceptionally cordial and helpful, the rooms clean, bright, and comfortable, with the overall facility being simply wonderful. The views from this property are stunning. Great value / great experience.

It's a small family run hotel with amazing views and customer service. The Cinque family could not have been more accommodating. It's located near great restaurants and the bus stop. It's also immaculate. The view from the balcony is heavenly. Would definitely stay here if I'm lucky enough to go back to Positano.
