Reviewed 28 August 2013

My family and I just stayed at La Tosca in Capri in August of this year. It was our best experience ever. The hotel is like a B&B and is very well located. The views are wonderful, breakfast is simple but wonderful. Ettore the owner is fabulous. He took care of us so well. He helped us plan our entire stay on the island. He made reservations for dinner for our family as we had just landed and arrived first to Capri after a long journey. He gave my husband and I some great recommendations for romantic walks for the evening. The next day, he helped us plan and book our entire visit to AnaCapri, called the sandwich shop so that we could pick up a picnic lunch, and an hour boat ride around the islands. I highly recommend la Tosca to anyone visiting Capri. Ettore's service is impeccable and extremely welcoming. It made us not want to leave. We will be back again to visit you. Thank you very much for a wonderful and a memorable time in one of the most beautiful places on earth - Capri.

This is an Excellent Hotel to stay in Capri. It is everything and more of what you would expect from a 3 star hotel room. Hotels in Capri are quiet expensive, and La Tosca offered very attractive precises considering the location.

It is very well located, within 5 mins from the center of Capri town. However, by far the best amenity of the Hotel is the owner (Ettore). He personally runs the hotel with his family. They will make you feel very welcome and will provide very detail recommendations of how to make the best of your time in Capri. Where to go, at what time, where to eat, etc.
Capri is a beautiful place, and with an excellent guide as Ettore, you will be able to admire and see all of its beauties. Ettore will even recommend where is the best place to watch them sunset!
thank you ettore!

Ettore was wonderful, location was central enough (although a bit of a hike with our bags), rooms were basic with a great shower. Ettore and other staff are really the standout here. He suggested a good cruise (Laser Capri, which included a dip in the Blue Grotto!) for us, a hike that was a highlight of our trip, grabbing a sandwich by a deli by the ferry which was delicious, and helped coordinate the details our last day that resulted in us seamlessly catching our ferry. This place really cannot be beat, esp. for those that can't blow the bank in Capri. Highly recommend spending a night there (we wished we'd stayed a second)-what a treat!

We now realise how lucky we were to get a room with a terrace and great views at this time of the year!
During our stay at the La Tosca Signor Ettore and his lovely wife Mitchell made all efforts possible to give us a home away from home experience, alongst with the others who work there. The rooms are basic but extremely comfy, though a full length mirror in the rooms would be highly appreciated.
What stands out about La Tosca is the 24/7 hospitality of the hosts of this family run Hotel.
Signor Ettore is forever ready with directions, recommendations for places to eat (made all our dinner reservatiions), things to do, places ot visit, et all. And he does this with a smile on his face, always.
The Hotel is located centrally and close to the main town square.

What a gem on the beautiful Isle of Capri! La Tosca is snuggled up a quiet lane away from the bustle of the piazza – but the true gem of the hotel is, as so many have mentioned, the owner Ettore. He has got to be the most helpful person I’ve ever come across, and clearly has a passion for this lovely unique piece of rock in the middle of a beautiful ocean.
We stayed at La Tosca for 5 nights in July and enjoyed every minute. Capri is of course, outrageously expensive compared to say, Sorrento but Ettore knows where the reasonable restaurants are and is more than happy to advise on eating options. He also told us where to find the supermarket, bread shops and fruit and veg shop (which are down a very obscure side-street!)
The rooms are lovely and spacious with really good cupboard space and stunning outlooks, and are spotlessly clean. The view from the terrace is wonderful – and soaking in this view at breakfast every morning was a great way to start the day. Breakfast was fantastic – fresh, warm buns, crispy croissants and an assortment of jams and spreads, and wonderful aromatic coffee served by a lovely lady who was always cheerful, no matter how hot or busy she was ( we unfortunately did not get her name, but Ettore will know who we mean).
We visited the famous Blue Grotto (again, Ettore kindly phoned to check that the cave was ‘open’ and we bought the tickets for the boat trip at the hotel). If you don’t do anything else on Capri, do visit the Blue Grotto – it’s an amazing experience. But be prepared to wait a while – the cove outside the grotto looked a bit like a parking lot at a mall on sale day. But it’s certainly well worth it.
We also paid a visit to the private beach at Marina Piccolo – a small beach with lots of sun beds on batch platforms above the rocks. The sea was warm, the sun was hot and it was good day!
We had our best (and reasonably priced) meal at Lo Sfizio – it’s on the way up to Villa Jovis and has a wonderful menu, with a great selection. Do visit Villa Jovis – spectacular views!
All in all, we had a wonderful time on Capri. Ettore, thank you and all at La Tosca for your superb hospitality, we look forward to a return visit!

This was our second stay at this hotel . We had the best time. Perfect location, very warm and friendly staff. The owner and his father made great recommendations for dinners, renting a boat , activities, planning our arrival/departure, ect. We met some his family that happened to be in town the same week, all were very nice, and welcoming. I miss the balcony, Capri, and Hotel Tosca. It was really such a pleasure to stay there, I can't wait to go back.
