After booking the Hotel Capri and reading the reviews I was quite worried about what I would find. All I kept reading about was awful food, rude staff, noisy rooms etc. But I can honestly say I was pleasantly surprised.
The staff were lovely, the two waiters in the restaurant were always polite to us and very friendly. The food was anything but terrible, I did not have one meal that I didn't enjoy, and I am a very picky eater. There is something on the menu that would suit any taste. We ate in the hotel restaurant almost every night, and I can't really complain about anything. The breakfast is simple, toast, croissants, cereals etc but it's just enough in my opinion. Don't expect anything like a big fry up, the italians do not eat this the way we do at home.
The rooms were fine, slightly noisy if you are facing the road but nothing that would keep you awake at night. The room was spotlessly clean and cleaned every day. The only fault I would have with the rooms is that there was no air conditioning, this is only in operation from june until september. Also the safe deposit box was not attatched to anything in the room.
The pool area was perfect, I had read that many people thought it was too small, and alright, you wouldn't exactly be doing laps in it but it's great for a quick swim. While I was there it was fairly quiet so most of the time we had the pool to ourselves anyways. It is also spotlessly clean as is the whole pool area.
The hotel is situated right in the centre of the town so it is perfect for going out, there's no need to take a bus or taxi anywhere. Buses for day trips arrive just down the street a few yards so it's perfect.
All I can say is don't take notice of the bad reviews, I have stayed in plenty of horrendous hotels myself but I can assure you that this is definitely not one of them.
