If you are looking for a reasonably priced, charming hotel in the heart of Capri, I recommend you stay at La Minerva. It is a beautiful place, white stone with fantastic tile work throughout. The hotel is a short walk from the heart of Capri's stores and restaurants, close to great hikes to some of Capri's most beautiful sites as well to the buses that take you to other parts of the island. Yet it is secluded enough to be quiet and relaxing. The room I stayed in had a nice view of the cliffs and the communal balcony's is even better.
The hotel's host, Luigi, is warm, thoughtful and takes time to give super recommendations as to restaurants and places to see. His advice as to things that he described as "not to be missed" was right on. He even gave me an umbrella to get me through the rain when I checked out! He was a wonderful, friendly adviser for how to explore the island's treasures and was great at setting up the details for arriving, getting around, and leaving the island.
The rates are very reasonable and breakfast with breads, sweets, juice coffee and jam was included. I had a wonderful, relaxing stay in Capri, and Luigi and La Minerva made my stay a warm and memorable experience.
