Room was spacious and spotless, as was the bathroom. Staff were all very friendly and helpful. We even met the owner who came and introduced herself at breakfast. Spectacular views. Good restaurant just next door and handy to the bus stops. Town centre is only a short walk away, but plenty of stairs. We were on the ground floor and...

Family run establishment in a great location, not cheap but what is in Positano. This was our second visit, rooms are pleasant all with breathtaking views. But you don't stay there for the breakfast best to seek other options in that regard.

Located almost in the middle of everything in Positano, the views are incredible . The rooms are spacious and spotless, with all basic amenities including AC. They also provide parking (provided) that you request it at the time of reservation, this is important since is impossible to get a parking spot in this town. Included breakfast is basic, but nice...

This hotel is an incredible place to stay in Positano. The view from our balcony was stunning, and the windows on every landing offered a breathtaking vista over the sparkling blue ocean. Our room was quiet and spacious, and the service was outstanding. From carrying our heavy suitcase up three flights of stairs to giving us directions around the Amalfi...

Prior to going on a cruise from Civitavecchia, we stayed a few days at theHotel California. This hotel was exactly as it appeared to be on the internet.

Wow! I was blown away when I opened the balcony doors- this view is spectacular! Can't fault the hotel. Perfect location to the beach, shopping and beautiful restaurants. Large, clean rooms. Towels were so soft and fluffy. I highly recommend this hotel. Staff were also extremely helpful.

This was our first trip to the Amalfi Coast and we had only set out two nights for this leg of our journey but we are so glad we did! I was extremely apprehensive about booking this part of the trip on our European holiday as my husband was concerned about how we'd get there lugging our bags from Rome...
