Just a 1-minute drive from the harbor, the JK is located right on the road snaking up from the marina to Capri Town. The pool area is screened from the road by beautiful, blooming oleander, but there’s some car/moped noise that makes that area of the property less idyllic than the interiors and the terrace alongside the back of the hotel. That terrace, with views of Vesuvius across the bay, is serene and lovely, and the interiors are just what you’d expect from the Web site, designed to the hilt and in immaculate condition. Service was good throughout the stay. Food (we ate dinner there once, and breakfast daily) was good, not great. Other hotels that we saw looked quite dated (La Scalinatella looked ghastly and tacky, and while the location of Caesar Augustus, with its unparalleled views, is much nicer than JK’s location, I’d prefer to stay at a new, impeccably designed, and very 21st century hotel like JK. We availed ourselves of the free shuttle service to/from town, which basically operates whenever you have a need to go or come—very nicely done. Staff were young, and had to be reminded occasionally of requests, but overall were effective and well trained. So I have no complaints, and would definitely stay there again if I were to return to Capri. That said, beyond the nice interiors and the terrace, there’s not much to do at the hotel itself, and the pool area, while fine, didn’t have much to recommend it. So a very good hotel, but not one that made itself onto my mental list of great hotels experiences.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The discreet charm of the venue and the comfort of feeling at home, surrounded by precious details, this is the philosophy behind the creation of the JK Place Capri. Set into the cliffs of the enchanting island of Capri, the hotel has twenty-two rooms that echo the style and the concept of a luxury house with another element to boost the charm of the site: the light and color of the sea. Spacious rooms where the artful revival of the classical style is enhanced by the sunny curtains and the luminous white floors, highlighting the spectacular views of the Capri coastlines through the windows and panoramic balconies of the rooms. Then there are the inevitable stylish touches, such as the precious marbles and the grey and white mosaics of the bathrooms, and the supremely elegant black-and-white carpets, conceived like frames marking out the various areas of the bedrooms. The building was first inaugurated as a hotel in 1885 and rapidly became a point of reference for the nobility spending holidays on the island. Now, as then, the hotel offers a splendid pathway to the sea below, while the superb location on the Capri cliff-top gives the guest the sensation of being in absolute contact with the natural environment, almost suspended above the azure seascape. The luxury of discreet elegance and taste make the JK Place Capri a place where comfort and wellbeing are combined with an enviable panoramic position, sheer over the sea, immersed in the luxuriant coastline that has always been an exclusive destination and source of inspiration, a resort for emperors, poets and noble travelers, a haven for the soul in which you can lose yourself in admiration of the sea. ... more less
