“A great stay - perfect location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 October 2013

Stayed here for 4 nights and really pleased that we chose this hotel. Capri is normally VERY expensive for most things but the great value offered by this hotel PLUS the very extensive knowledge of its owner Ettore guiding you not only to the best places to visit in Capri but also ways to make your euro go further was very welcome. It was like having your own resident tour guide and he was always eager and willing to offer advice whenever asked. Location is perfect, next to the Augustus Gardens and Via Krupp, both great to visit and offering stunning views. A short stroll takes you to all those amazing lanes full of restaurants and super stylish shops. On a little further to the main piazza and the funicular train down to the habour area. The hotel was spotless and the room (53) was very quiet and overlooked a small side garden area. Breakfast - breads, jams, juice and coffee was taken on the terrace with lovely sea views towards the Faraglioni rocks. Definitely the place to stay in Capri to make it a more affordable visit at an excellent price and with all the help and attention that Ettore is happy to give. Thoroughly recommended!

Good location not far from the central hub of Capri town - and away from busy hustle.

Ettore was very helpful in providing advice on activities to plan our day. This meant that we found it very easy to get about and visit different places.

Generally felt very welcome staying here, and would stay again.

We stayed 3 nights at la Tosca. This is a quiet secluded hotel. It deserves far more than the 1 star it is rated. The rooms are clean, service great and the terrace lovely to sit and enjoy any time of day or evening. So close to the centre but really quiet and peaceful. Would highly recommend this hotel

I had a good time at this hotel and I highly recommend it to everyone. Great value for your money, good location and very friendly and helpful owners. The owners accommodated every requests we had, they told us all we need to do and everything we had to visit in Capri plus they recommend some very good restaurants that they have personally booked for us on a daily basis.
Thanks to their advised we also had lovely walks around the island and discovered places that otherwise we wouldn't have visited.

Room Tip: Ask for sea view room.

If you are reading this, then you have gathered (as we did) that having decided to stay overnight in Capri, you will pay through the nose for accommodation!! We had this place recommended in both our guide books and it is really popular. We booked in January for a room that we didn't need till the end of September! Even then, we could not get a room with any private outside space
I had my reservations, but don't be put off by the one star rating. The room was large enough with a cheery yellow bed cover and sparklingly clean. There was also a large window that opened properly and overlooked the little inner garden area. There is a sunny communal terrace where breakfast is served. Breakfast consists of juice, tea/coffee and croissants etc but it is more than adequate. The Italians don't really "do" breakfast.
Hotel is conveniently located approx 5 mins walk from the main square but is really quiet and peaceful. It is a bit of a struggle with the luggage - come up on the funicular from the port then you have to walk. You can pay porters to tranport luggage but at 10 euros a piece we didn't think it was worth it!
Ettore is a treasure and gives great advice. He will also recommend restaurants and book for you if you wish
Compared to other places we looked at, then La Tosca is really very good for the money

As everyone has said, Ettore was a joy. He was very helpful with anything we needed during our quick 2 night stay. Our room was very simple and clean. The location was okay. We definitely struggled with all our luggage getting to and from the hotel. There are porters that can bring you your luggage from the dock at a cost. Looking back, we would have done that when we arrived. Overall it was a good experience.

We stayed in this hotel as part of a self-guided hiking tour. None of the hotels we stayed in were fancy, but most were good, with decent breakfasts and helpful staff. This is the only one I probably wouldn't go back to. For one thing, the included "breakfast" is simply coffee, juice and bread. That's not a good way to start a day of hiking.

Breakfast started at 8am, so one morning at 7:30 I asked the staff where I could go buy some fruit for breakfast. They told me nothing would be open until 9am, but I went out looking anyway, and of course I brought back fruit. So La Tosca not only doesn't feed you much, but they don't even help you to go out and buy your own food.

This was the only hotel we stayed in that didn't have a mini-fridge. TV was not important to us, but if it is to you, you won't have one at La Tosca.

I note that a lot of the other reviews stress value. Since we were there as part of a packaged trip, I didn't shop hotels in Capri. If, in fact, La Tosca is significantly less expensive that all other hotels, I guess that's its advantage. If you're looking for something really spartan in order to save money, this might be a good choice. And it is clean and well located.
