“Beautiful views”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 September 2014

We were lucky with our room allocation in this hotel. As part of a tour group, we had been pre-warned that the bedrooms were quite outdated and very small. For some reason ( and we didn't complain ) we ended up in a recently refurbished room, which was fabulous. We found the staff to be friendly and helpful with extra attention given to special requests at mealtimes. We loved the elegant furniture and fittings in the public rooms and really enjoyed our two night stay here. The dining room, bar terrace and upper sunbathing terrance must have the best views on the whole island. Anacapri is delightful with classy shops and restaurants and is also the starting point for the chair lift up to Monte Solaro.

I would recommend this hotel .

Room Tip: We would recommend this hotel if you can insist on a seaview room or ask for rooms 401, 402 or 403.

We stayed at this hotel and we were shocked of how bad is the condition of this place. it needs a lot of money to be redone. shame as it is in a beautiful spot maybe one of the best in capri. don't go here. you have to pay for the towel by the pool and even the sunbed. this hotel is not even worth 2 stars. such a shame!!!!

This was a fantastic place to stay but unfortunately the ride to the hotel wasn't working the day we got there so we had to take the bus but that was a trip in itself. We couldn't eat the dinner the first night due to food prepared for the group that was there for a seminar (mostly German's who like spicy foods, which my wife couldn't eat) but the second night all of the food prepared was with my wife's allergies in mind (which was great) and the food was fantastic and the table we had overlooked the Bay of Naples. Breakfast was good but I find that most of the food at hotels in Italy was always about the same and include in the price of the hotel.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on top that has a lookout onto the Bay of Naples. Go in the summer and you can go in...

This is a small, family run hotel which has an excellent location. Probably the best location in all of Capri & Anacapri. We went as part of a Cosmos tour & stayed there for 2 nights.

While most of the group was allotted room in the main hotel building, we were given a tiny room (which they called the Garden Room, I don't know why, as there was no garden near it) below a villa. It was a 2 minute walk from the main hotel property. So, everytime we needed to go to the restaurant or lobby or pool, we had to go on the sidewalk and make it to our destination. No problem there either.

What I did not appreciate was that this room did not have wifi (which had dismal coverage & speed, even in the lobby of the hotel), it did not have a telephone (so wake up call facility was not provided) & it did not have a safe deposit box. Cellphone signal was zero too. So, technically, we were absolutely cut off from the outside world. Some people may love this, but not me.

The tiny room was only a few feet from the road, so road noise was high. A window (the only window) in the room did not shut at first. When i requested the staff at the reception, he said (politely though) that they would see it the next day, as it was night already. Luckily, I managed to shut it with a swiss knife.

Breakfast & dinner were included in our package. Both were decent, no complaints.

The garden around the main hotel was beautiful with a quaint fountain. A bar/cafe with an excellent view of the sea & mount Vesuvius in the background was the highlight.

I would go back to this hotel solely for its location.

Room Tip: Do not opt for the Garden Room

Ok. This is the first review I have ever written on trip advisor and I have travelled many places in my time. We just checked out of the hotel and I can safely say it's the worst hotel for the price I have ever stayed. The rooms are disgusting, old and needs lots of money spent on it. Such a shame as it could be a beautiful hotel. The reception staff are rude and you even have to pay for towels and sunbeds by the pool even if you are hotel guests and paying 300 euro a night!! Ludicrous. I'm so very disappointed on the whole experience. Our queen bed was 2 singles pushed together unevenly and the curtains wouldn't close. I could go on and on but please just read this review and know I am not a picky person I have never complained before but it really was awful.

The hotel is ok in overall, but the rooms are too small. It has a nice view of the Marina Grande, its near Anacapri (walking distance) but far from Capri (must take a taxi). The people working on the breakfast where very nice, they even gave us service after closed.
