We were looking for a nice 4-star hotel in Capri for our 8-day vocation. I booked a triple room in this hotel because of ist good reviews and nice Fotos. As we came to the hotel, we were dissapointed to get a room where everything one could see from the window was a huge ugly wall. The rooms shown online have very nice panorama through the windows, but it is a marketing trick. The hotel is located behind a huge another building, so all the view you can get is an ugly shabby wall. The rooms at the other side of the corridor face a small garden, however there are no rooms in this hotel with the views of the sea or nice panorama shown in the Fotos.
After repeatedly complaining about that we were offered another room on the second floor which, though smaller, was more cosy because one could see some sky above that ugly wall. However, there was another problem: the wardrobe was terribly smelly (as like smbd urinated inside) so we didint use it, meaning a mess in the room during all our vocation.
Another thing that we didnt like was the breakfast. This hotel offers very poor breakfast for a 4-star standard: every morning the same stone-hard buns, cheap croissants and coffee of an average quality. The breakfast room is dark and uncosy, but it is nice to eat outside on the terrace if the day is nice.
The good things about this hotel was its location: central and very quiet. It has a pool area, but be aware, that kids are alowed only between 9 and 1 pm. We have no complains about the cleanliness.
Our overall impression was rather poor because we expected a higher quality from a 4 star establishment and we felt manipulated through the fotos much nicer as the reality. We wouldnt go back to this hotel. By the way, they charged us the price of a triple room, though we changed to a double on the second day of our stay.
