Tirrenia Roberts B&B
Ranked #41 of 48 Capri B&B and Inns
Reviewed 7 November 2008

In total agreement with the last review. We booked this having seen the view and the pool on the website. Having travelled around many areas in Italy for over 6 weeks, the stairs etc didn't phase us much, better than many I've stayed in.
The room was pleasant but agree with the lack of privacy. The owner lives in the next room and as you have to leave your room and cross the hall to the bathroom this can be a bit off putting. Also, the room we had shared the balcony with their living area and he did come and chat to us when we were just chilling out. Asked how come we were back so early and what our plans were for the evening etc. I'm sure he's just being friendly but it was a bit too much.
He's very helpful with things to do and advice but a bit overpowering making sure that you have your days itinery before you leave for the day and questioning you on it when you return. I got the feeling he didn't approve on the day we came home early and spent the afternoon relaxing by the pool.
The restaurant he recommended was OK, but no cheaper or better than some others we found.
Capri is lovely and worth a visit, and you do need to be extremely careful when you book as locations can be very difficult to get to but I think I'd pay a little more for a hotel and be ensured the peace and privacy we would have liked.

My boyfriend and I decided to go for a 7 day break in Capri and chose Tirennia Roberts B&B as we were looking to save a few pennies due to booking a bigger holiday to Peru in October.

If you are looking for a romantic and fairly private location then this is possibly not the place. Although the setting of the B&B is beautiful with a decent size pool and view over the sea, you will get little privacy at this B&B. The owner is very friendly and extremely helpful but also always present and lives in the same house as you will be staying.

The room we were given was large, with good a/c and a balcony overlooking the sea, but the bed was simple and the walls were thin so sometimes in the afternoon it was impossible to enjoy a siesta due to conversational noise from the adjacent owners living room.

The garden was beautiful with a very clean swimming pool and plenty of sun loungers.

The breakfast was simple - bread with butter and jams although I think this may be the tradition in Capri.

Location wise it is probably a 20 minute walk from the main square in Capri. It's an uphill walk but actually never bothered us as it was pleasant to walk into town and back after an evening out.

Overall I thought the B&B was good, but if we were to go again we would definitely book into one of the hotels where comfort and privacy would be guaranteed. For readers using this review it may be worth mentioning we are both 32 and fairly well travelled.

We just stayed for two nights in the new part (Eva's house) of the area. What a great place. Yes, you need to be fit to reach the Villa on the Via Mulo, yes, it is a small B&B... but apart from that it is absolutely wonderful.

You get a brilliant view of Marina Piccola, a very well maintained pool with sun chairs and a great deck as well as a large breakfast for € 110. And the best of all is Eva's hospitality, she really makes you feel home and tells you the best options for your day. This is one of the best kept secrets of Capri... Enjoy...

Still I understand the last review, if you can just stay in your room (due to bad weather) you will be disappointed. However, this is just bad luck and probably true for any place...

We just got back from a wonderful honeymoon to Italy. We stayed at Tirrenia Roberts for 2 nights (originally booked for 3). The b&b is a 15 minute walk from the funicular down some stairs, and down a walking path. Our room was cheap (90 euros/night), it had a queen sized bed with a balcony looking over the pool, and then to the ocean. We had our own bathroom, but the walls were moldy, making the bathroom smell bad. It rained a lot when we were in Capri, so we spent some time in this room, and we were wishing that we were somewhere a bit nicer. This room would be great for someone going to Capri and just needing a place to sleep at night. The owners are friendly and helpful with things to do around town. I would reccomend this room to someone who would spend minimal time there. I dont think I would stay there again. Reasons: moldy bathroom, long uphill walk back with heavy luggage, somewhat far from town.

My husband and I stayed at Tirrenia Roberts B&B in May 2005 for two nights and it was fantastic. Capri is like heaven on earth with so many beautiful places to see, though most involve a lot of walking along steep pathways so you need to be reasonably fit. The B&B is owned by a brother a sister and is divided into two areas. Costanzo runs the side where the pool is (which looks exactly like the photos on the website) and Eva runs the other side where we stayed. Our room was immaculate and opened out on to a lovely terrace with views of the sea. Eva was a wonderful hostess and gave us tips of where to go to see as much as possible in a few days, and recommended a great restaurant down the street, Ristorante O'Verginello, which is frequented by the locals and has great food at cheap prices. The B&B is quite a walk from the furnicular in Capri Town and Via Mulo where the B&B is located is very steep in parts but well worth the effort. We can't say enough good things about Capri and Tirrenia Roberts - can't wait to go back there. Enjoy!
