“Charm”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2013

This hidden gem is worth seeking out. It is an affordable way to enjoy a VERY EXPENSIVE island. It's a no-nonsense, tidy and friendly corner of the island that is really closer to the action than you think. Everything is so close - there is no need to stay in a more expensive place here. This is such a welcoming place that seems more like someone's home - without the B&B level of involvement.

We had to pay in advance, which can be scary in these days we live in - but it it was all cool. And it's better because it's one less bill you'll have AFTER the vacation.

Stay here & take the bus to Anacapri to ride the sky gondola things for a day trip.

Room Tip: We stayed in a non-view room. If that is important to you - discuss it with them beforehand. I thi...

I was very pleased with my stay at La Tosca. It is a cute, simple place and a great value. It has a nice terrace with a beautiful view and is in a great location - walking distance to the city center, Via Krupp, and many shops and restaurants. I highly recommend if you are looking for a simple, clean place to stay. It is more of a b&b than a hotel, but it really is nice. I would definitely stay here again if I come back to Capri!

True to the other reviews, Ettore is so helpful and welcoming. He will bend over backwards for his guests. While there, I heard him helping another guest track down their missing luggage. He was able to get us into a bigger room than we thought was available. He suggests great restaurants and how to get around the island. He booked a car transfer for us from the Naples airport to the port. The driver (David, who is great by the way) purchased our ferry tickets for us and loaded our luggage onto the ferry - I certainly didn't expect this! In all, he provides friendly service that is very rare these days.

An amazing place to visit, Capri is a beautiful part of Italy. The stay at La Tosca, was at the end of our 10 jaunt through the Region and the most memorable one. Right from the time where we were deciding where to stay, Ettore was professional, responded very quickly to email inquiries, and the most wonderful person we met on our journey. He was helpful, knowledgeable, and one of the nicest guys we ever met in our many years of travel abroad. The Hotel was clean, good sized, nice bathroom, breakfast was great, served by a very attentive and friendly staff. If you are thinking of going to Capri, stay with the best. Stay at La Tosca!

We just got home yesterday after staying for a week at La Tosca. This was our fourth visit.
It is a wonderfully relaxed small small hotel. We spent our week on long walks enjoying the beautiful sights on the island.

We enjoyed it at least as much on this visit as on previous occasions. The peaceful location with wonderful views, yet so close to the most elegant parts of Capri, is always a delight.

The hotel's own website, http://www.latoscahotel.com/, in English and Italian, is an accurate reflection of what you will find there.

Room Tip: If available, look for a room with a balcony. Even if not available, breakfast on the terrace offer...

As many have mentioned here, Ettore is extremely professional and helped us hugely with directions, recommendations and local information. With his help, we were able to make the most of a short trip to Capri. The hotel itself is close to the centre but feels quiet and relaxed. It has a small terrace, which is a great place for breakfast or a beer in the evening and overlooks the gardens of the Certosa di San Giacomo.

Our stay at La Tosca was perfect! From booking to checking-out, the service we received was remarkable. We traveled to Capri by ferry from Sorrento. Ettore gave us great directions to the hotel from the harbor. La Tosca is a 10-minute walk from the main square. The room wasn't quite ready when we checked in but we were invited to wait on the outside patio (with breathtaking views!) and were offered a cold beverage. We waited only 10-15 minutes. Our room was down the hallway, on the main floor. There wasn't much of a view but the window was nice and big so let in lots of natural light. For the views, go outside and walk around! The room wasn't too small - plenty of space for 2 and big suitcases! Everything smelled good and was clean. We didn't have a balcony and no television. It gave us more time to explore the island! We stayed only 1 night / 2 days but Ettore gave us plenty of recommendations to keep us busy! We followed his instructions and had the BEST time. A modest continental breakfast was included. Try their cappucino! I would 150% go back and 150% recommend! Thank you for a great stay!

Room Tip: If you are traveling on a budget, choose a standard room. No views, no balcony, no tvs... But everyt...
