Reviewing hotels isn't easy.Just comparing TA reviews shows the subjective nature of such reviews.In the case of this hotel the judgment to make is complicated by the fact that few of the reviews are recent.The Best Western Syrene has undergone progressive refurbishment and opinions expressed years ago may no longer be valid.
We spent 10 days at the hotel in August 2010 (the height of the Italian tourist season). We were familiar with Capri although previous stays were many years ago.
We were delighted with our stay (even though our standards of comparison are with higher category hotels).The location of the hotel is unbeatable, on the via Camerelle, just across from the emblematic Quisisana, steps from the marvelous via Tragara and the via Krupp. The room we had (and we may have been lucky with room assignment) was light, bright with all essential amenites (as an example one of the most complete choice of international satellite channels) with a comfortable modern bathroom. A bonus was the huge terrace with seaview (side) which we didn't even have the occasion to enjoy properly.
Buffet breakfast is served on the terrace overlooking the via Camerelle.Although no great variety it is more than adequate with everything fresh and constatntly replaced.The lemon grove adjacent to the swimmin pool (where lunch is served) could be one of Capri's more delightful restaurants, but no evening meals are available (because of the very brief average stay of guests).
Service is friendly and efficient. Most of our contacts were with Sig. Vittorio who is unfailingly pleasant, courteous and efficient..
A fly in the ointment (previously mentioned by some reviewers): The swimming pool surrounded by sun terraces with a more than adequae number of sunbeds is open to outsiders. As a result it is invaded with children rather limiting the enjoyment of guests of a certain age staying in the hotel and paying full price.I didn't let this influence too negatively my overall rating of an excellent hotel.
