“It is worth the walk”
Reviewed 5 July 2012

This is an affordable place to stay on Capri, if you want more you can pay more at another hotel. We found the staff friendly and helpful, the room we had was at the top of the stairs and had the perfect deck and views. The breakfast was good enough for us and the coffee was very good. We enjoyed the location and that it is off the main crowded walkways of Capri. You do need to be able to walk a distance and climb stairs, if you can you will be fine.

Villa Krupp is situated on one of the highest spots in Capri giving fantastic views of the sea and La Faraglioni below. However, to get there is downhill 10 minutes from the town center then up about a hundred yards on a steep and, narrow path, followed by 70 or 80 steps to the edge of the property. Then up 30 steps to the lobby and we were on the second floor without an elevator.
The room was lovely but the management was rude and unhelpful. Breakfast was included on a patio with great views but the breakfast was only a roll and coffee.

Room Tip: Rooms in the front with a view of La Faraglioni

This hotel is always listed as a bargain hunter's choice, and I guess it is, but I found I couldn't wait to leave. Not that it was so terrible -- and we had cold weather so could not breakfast on terrace -- but everything seemed bare bones, from the skimpy breakfasts to the almost not existent bar (which charged a fortune for a drink). My friend's single room was tiny and the sheets were damp. After dinner I longed to come back to a warm bath at about 10 pm -- no hot water! And no apology for it the next day -- just a shrug, like what do you expect? If you go, arrange to have your bags sent to the hotel. It is a VERY long walk with bags through the town and up VERY steep steps. Not pleasant.

We were a little nervous, having read the reviews! But found the Villa Krupp beautifully located (quiet, above pretty terraced gardens, tho up lots of steps), and the staff (Donatella) very welcoming and friendly indeed. The view from the terrace is spectacular. The breakfast is quite basic but perfectly acceptable.

Well we all know that private hotels in Italy can be difficult. This place with the
most beautiful breakfast terrace overlooking i faraglioni rocks and the bay of
Piccola Marina is just awful. OK for Capri standards it is very inexpensive
(about 150 euros for a partial sea view double room) although it is in a great
location (if you don´t mind climbing the steps to the hotel) . The orange juice
in the morning comes in camp-site type plastic cups, the owner, an elderly
lady is very nosy and always wants to know what one is doing. She also
seems to be afraid that people run away w/o paying their bill (although
she had my credit card) and thus the checking out procedure was quite
awkward. I go to Capri often and thought once to return but my
reservation request was never answered. Even if you look for a cheaper
place to stay in Capri stay away from Villa Krupp.

We were greatly disappointed with Villa Krupp on Capri. While the view from the terrace was truly lovely and the older woman (host) was a doll, the praise stops there.

We were promised a family room with a view of the sea, and were given a very small room with beds for four shoved into it so that you could barely walk or have room for your luggage. The beds were SO hard and the pillows were like sacks of flour. Upon entering the room, it smelled like bleach. The towels in the bathroom were unlike any I have ever felt -- like sandpaper. There was nothing charming at all about this dorm-like room. As I looked at the windows, I had no view of the ocean, but then as I walked toward the windows, there was a small, skinny window on the adjacent wall that faced the sea.

We have spent over 5 weeks in Italy, and have almost always encountered friendly, helpful staff at hotels. The daughter of the mother/daughter hosts was shockingly unhelpful and unfriendly.

I cannot recommend this hotel to anyone. It may be the worst hotel we have ever stayed in.
