Hotel San Michele
Ranked #15 of 18 Hotels in Anacapri
Reviewed 14 July 2014

This hotel has beautiful views! Free breakfast that was included was nice. This is more of a classic hotel, which has its own type of charm. Don't expect a modern hotel. It is very close to Villa San Michele and it's not a far walk to the town of Anacapri. In my opinion, Anacapri is much more authentic than the town of Capri. If you're looking to travel around the island, there is a bus stop nearby (EUR 1.80 to get to Capri or to Marina Grande). You can also take a taxi, but this will be more expensive (minimum EUR 20 to get to Capri).

Room Tip: Rooms on the north side of the hotel have the best views.

My husband and I spent the last 4 days of our honeymoon at Hotel San Michele. It was an absolutely gorgeous hotel room with a balcony that overlooked the coastline. Absolutely breathtaking and stunning views from our balcony! The service was nice. The hotel had several weddings and other big events also planned at the same time so the grounds were noisy and our hallway was quite loud at times. The pool was refreshing and the pina coladas were delicious! My husband says it was his favorite part of the trip!

Room Tip: Ask for the large balconies with a view!!!!

A beautiful hotel with a scenic views. A spacious and comfortable room. An attentive and helpful staff. Some regrets: that we should walk through the restaurant to go to our room and a "minima" equipment (you would expect to have a coffee machine, tissues...).

My husband and I went for our 10th wedding anniversary and stayed at Hotel San Michelle for a week, and boy do I wish it was longer.
The hotel is situated on the gateway to Anacapri and has the most amazing views. It is ideally located for the bus back down to Capri which is 1min walk from the hotel and 5mins walk from the centre of Anacapri. In our view it was the best of both worlds. We has the superior deluxe room which was at the top of the island with the most imposing arched window with views so breathtaking. We also had a private terrace with sun beds. The room was clean and cleaned every day.
Breakfast was plentiful, again with the most amazing views over the coast. The pool is open from 9-6pm and has a great bar serving lovely Italian food and any drink you could want. The staff are very attentive and will bring you your food to your sun bed if you wish. The pool is large and clean and warm.
I would say if you want to stay in Anacapri, stay here, but pay extra for a room with sea view, it made our holiday. Missing it already

We travelled to the San Micehele hotel in Anacapri - after having booked way in advance - on the 20th June as part of a trip to celebrate a special wedding anniversary of wife and myself.

Upon arrival, the hotel searched its list of reservations and did not find our name. They then consulted a "second list" which turned out to be a group of individuals who had reserved and were to be turned away and farmed out as they had overbookings! They had very graciously (!) sent us an email the afternoon prior to our arrival (when we were obviosuly travelling and so had no access to email) and wondered why we did not know of this change?!!! As if less than 24 hours notice is respectable!

We were obviously furious but, being desperate, went to see the "alternate hotel" they proposed which was - as imagined - mediocre, in a run-down part of the village. Back at the hotel, after much heated discussion (during which the hotel management showed scarce remorse) we were offered a ground floor room with a garden (not sea) view and miserable furnishings. We took this room for a period of 1 hour while we ran around to find a proper hotel in Capri (this time, due to late booking, at a cost dramatically higher and recuperated our luggage and left San Michele.

Conclusion: Avoid hotels that may look picturesque but think nothing of not honouring their reservations and callously pan customers off to mediocre hotels. This way they can increase their yield by accepting customers at higher rates if they appear even when the hotel is fully booked! What sort of reservation system allows bookings to be made when all rooms are taken? Obviously this requires a manual override to play with reservations and rates and is no innocent accident. This is akin to an auction!

Be cautioned or forewarned: a hotel that will not honour its bookings is worth less than nothing - the stuff of nightmares!

The views from the San Michele will take your breath away. Our room was spacious and decorated in a modern classic design with soft soothing natural colors. The views from our balcony were amazing. We stayed in a deluxe room with a sea view and balcony.
Bathrooms were spacious with all amenities we wanted and the bed was very comfortable. The classic furnishings of the public spaces added to an atmosphere of a grand Italian Hotel. The breakfast that was included was a delightful surprise. There was something for everyone. The homemade pastries were exceptionally delicious.
All of the staff we came in contact with were very friendly and helpful.
The bartender, Maximus, made our stay even more enjoyable when we returned to the hotel in the evening after a day of exploring.
Wifi was no additional charge and easily accessed from our room.This was a plus.
Besides the natural beauty and views , the location is easily accessible by bus and taxi yet just far enough away from the hustle and bustle of the major port area of Carpi.We took the bus or walked and were very happy. We did not use the taxis as the buses ran very frequently. The center of Ana Capri is a short walk up the road and is very charming and quaint with many nice shops and restaurants. The road to the hotel is steep and could be scary to some but we found it an exciting start to our stay on Capri. An excellent value. Just beautiful!

Room Tip: The deluxe room is more spacious than the standard. It is worth the extra cost.
