“It was nice”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 April 2006

We stayed there for our second honey moon. The attitude was nice, the hotel was nice and cosy. As we were more walking around the island than staying in the hotel, in general it seemed nice. The breakfast was very poor. The owner was kind (probably it's because her little dog fell in love with us), we had some nice talks during the breakfast, she gave some useful advices on where to go and what to see.
The location is great, the bus is right there, little beach very close to the hotel, as well as Via Krupp.
But I have to admit, there wasn't that warm and friendly atmosphere which I had expected from this kind of little, owner-run hotel.
And at the end we realised that in Capri it doesn't matter where you stay because the island is a dream!

The hotel watches people who come back every night . The
last night and day we were there the owner cut off the cable, to save money????
It was crazy. Watch out- you might get your a/c or cable cut off on the last day. We were charged for air and cable when
we went to pay the bill.. Which was supposed to be included.
we never had clean towels, every 3 days--
the hotel is a bus ride to the city center, which is a 5 minute bus
ride. but the bus picks right up in front of this hotel, and that is
awesome. and also we stayed in the room that is in the picture on the site,
it is a beautiful view of the sea. "the honeymoon" room is the best, it has a nice ocean view-- make sure u ask for a sea view. it is well worth it..
the hotel is like a bed and
breakfast, cute and charming. if friendly is what you are looking for-- this might not be it.

beware of breakfast, they charge a lot.
It is a nice place to stay, very clean and charming. They have a fish
pond and friendlyNot the friendly service you would want-- but it has a nice view and near an italian restaurant and the bus picks up at the front door of the hotel which will take you into town

Stayed August 2004

Beware of Hotel Nautilus - Cap

We were never made to fell comfortable at the Hotel Nautilus, and we never knew when the hotel owner was going to be nice or not speak at all. The owner actually said "I'm not paid to be nice to the guests, that's my employee's job" - what a response from a hotel owner???? Don't worry Italians, she is not Italian.
Upon check out, we paid our bill then we got another call about air conditioning charges. There is absolutely no written material in the hotel, the room or on the web site that indicated an extra charge for air-conditioning. We were also told that breakfast was not included, when it actually states that it is on their website and we were told breakfast was included according to our conversations before we booked. The breakfast consisted of bread and a cup of fruit (about two normal spoon fulls - a joke). Also the walls were paper thin and we were constantly awakened by door slams and the hotel's dogs barking every time someone entered or left the property. The owner was rude and obnoxious upon check out. We have traveled all over the world and all over Italy, and never had such a bad experience as this. This hotel is NOT a 3 star hotel as mentioned on other travel sites. It should not even be ranked. Travelers Beware !!!!
