"Plenty of Room at the Hotel California, Such a Lovely Place"

Large arrow left

After discovering a scene from one of my favorite movies "Under the Tuscan Sun" had been filmed on a balcony at Hotel California Positano (the particular room is now named after the film), and being that I’m from California, I felt I was meant to stay there during my travels to the "Jewel of the Amalfi Coast".

The hotel has very reasonable rates for spacious rooms, a beautiful open-air terrace for guests to relax and enjoy breakfast or a drink, is within a short distance to walk to Spiaggia Grande (the main beach), explore the charming shops in town, dine at local restaurants, and also comes with a view that’s worth every euro (seen in the photo above is from the balcony of room 58).

Not only does the hotel have everything guests could ask for, but the Cinque family who owns the property are incredibly warm and friendly, especially Maria. An Italian grandmother, known by so many around town, Maria welcomes guests to the hotel like it was her own home and helps with anything they should need throughout their trip.

Hotel California is truly a lovely place, and I can't recommend it enough when staying in Positano.
