Cant Decide - Excelsior Parco, Minerva or other?

So many hotels sound so lovely I am really torn. Right now we have it down to either the Excelsior Parco or Minerva. We would like an, intimate, smaller but elegant type hotel. Pool is not important but views and terraces are a priority. We would like to be a little away from the hub bub, but close enough to walk. Budget is under $700 in September. Any thoughts between Minerva and Exc Parco? OR is there another that you would recommend instead? The JK Place looks beautiful but it is booked already. Thanks for any thoughts or suggestions. I keep circling and just cant decide.

It sounds as though the Minerva would suit you perfectly.

It is beautiful, elegant and has a boutique feel very similar in decor to JK

Place, but more intimate. The owners and staff will make you feel like you are wrapped in cashmere. The pool might not be that important to you, but they serve nice lunches there under their covered veranda, and breakfast on their roof terrace, as well as cocktails overlooking the sea.

It's a pretty 5-10 minute walk to the Piazzetta along a pedestrianised path lined with flowering trees and shrubs.

The Exelsior Parco, which rates highly on Trip Advisor relies on a shuttle service to Capri's centre, as it is located on a road in a residential area down towards Marina Grande. If you want to walk from there it will take you 15-20 minutes uphill along a main road with no pavement, and through steep winding lanes.

I would describe it as traditional, rather than elegant. The staff are nice.

Thank you so much. You helped clarify with some details that weren't clear in all the reviews.
