Enjoyed the visits to two beautiful churches and found Beatrice clear... More

Very nice hotel,location, staff, service,view. The room was tiny ,but the scenery made up for it . The only advice to people working at this hotel is not to recommend Capri Tour to their guests. They had recommended Lemon Tour ,Tour to Ravello, some restaurants, and we enjoyed them all. The Capri Tour was a disaster. We informed the what... More

Honestly, I have no idea how this hotel is a 4star one! The rooms are old, showers are rusty, even the doors are with a key!! like a physical key not a card. We stayed 2 nights in the hotel, the only advantage that its in the centre. But everything else is BAD. Period.

We liked everything about our stay here except the bathroom towels were a tad rough! Yes sun dried I think and bathroom cosmetics need upgrading. These are small things and not to take away from our excellent stay. Great ocean view / balcony room. Easy location both quiet and 5 mins to Piazza. Fantastic location travel options.
