My wife and I stayed here for 4 nights and had a great experience. This was our first time to Capri and we took the high-speed train to Naples and a taxi to the Port and then the high-speed ferry. I would recommend doing the same...especially the taxi to the port in Naples as that trip is through a seedy area.
The hotel has a a great shuttle service but we did not have a cell phone to call so we took a cab to the hotel. 10 Euros for about 400m. You can call from a restaurant or gift shop they have an affiliation with.
We stayed in a corner-terrance room, which was very lovely. The room was very clean with marble floors and an amazing view of the sea and villa across the road. The staff is exceptionally helpful and friendly and definitely add to the overall experience.
The lobby is very nice and the terrace where you have breakfast is great as well. I believe the hotel was a villa at one point.
The breakfast was excellent and the staff were very eager to make the meal enjoyable.
The location is half-way between the port and Capri center. With the car service, it is very convenient. The hotel is close to JK Place. However, we walked a lot taking the stairs...we never quite got used to walking on the roads. There is a grocery store about 100m away where you can buy wine and snacks. We loaded up when we rented a boat each day (we rented from Giorgio though there is another outfit Banana Boat which seemed fine as well).
The hotel has a very large roof-top terrace that is not used very much. It was a great place to watch a sunset or have a drink.
There are other very nice hotels in the center of Capri, but this location seemed a little more quiet at night, which was perfect for us.
