“It's All That Everyone Says !!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 6, 2011

What a great place !! Our perfect room had a large marble balcony overlooking the bay .Carlos advised us to take a private boat trip around the island to see the Blue Grotto -140 euros ,plus tips ,but worth every penny !!So many special places you would never see ! The food here was wonderful too !!

The hotel was warm and inviting. The staff was great, accommodating and extremely pleasant. The room was roomy and comfortable with a balcony complete with chairs and a table,. It was beautifully decorated. Breakfast was delicious; made to order omelets, pastries, 3 different kinds of juices, cheeses, meats, coffees and yogurt. We also had dinner at the hotel that was delicious. The hotel was in a great location with a beautiful view of the water. The staff was willing to drive us where ever we wanted to go which was a great help. Highly recommend this hotel.

I was at the hotel excelsior parco in Capri Italy last week for 3 days with my fiancee and it was fabulous . The check in and check out with Viviana was a rapid and pleasant experience . She is a wonderful person. The hotel itself was confortable and well situated. Very clean room and spacious. The breakfast was also first class. I would recommend this hotel for everyone .

We stayed 2 nights at Excelsior Parco and had a fantastic time. The hotel itself is a beautiful old villa with a great view of the Capri marina. The rooms are spacious, clean and nice.

The best thing with our stay was however the staff, we got a good introduction of the island when checking in and the staff was extremely helpful in booking rooms, providing tips for to do's on the island etc. Also, the shuttle service with friendly Carlo was much appreciated (even though the hotel is just 15 mins walk from Capri "city").

If we go back to Capri, we'll definitively stay at Excelsior Parco.

I went to Capri with my boyfriend for his b.day. i had told the Hotel Manager it was his b.day and she had surprised us and put a bottle of sparkling wine in the room along with some little nibbles. The hotel itself was perfect. The hotel staff were extremely helpful and friendly and i would definitely go back there and recommend to friends. They have a complimentary shuttle car that takes you to town and back during the day and the driver was brilliant. I couldn't praise the hotel staff enough. Our room was cleaned every day and all in all - perfection!

This hotel has the most amazing service. I've travel a lot - all over the world - and I don't think I've ever seen a hotel where the staff takes so much effort to make the experience enjoyable.

These are some of the things that my family and I appreciated here:
1) We decided to visit Capri at very short notice from Rome. I emailed about 10 hotels asking for rates and information. Only 2 hotels ever responded, and I got a prompt response from only this one hotel - from Valerio - who was very helpful with prices, room selection, travel suggestions to come up from Rome, and other useful information, so that we had our trip set up in a few hours.
2) Although the hotel is not in the heart of the town, the drop off / pick up arrangement is awesome. Carlos (who drives the car) is super friendly, and gets you where you need to be at very short notice. First time visitors to Capri may not realize that a lot of the hotels in the heart of the town are not actually approachable by car, and so is some walking involved to get to any hotel around the main square from the designated cab drop off point. If you don't want to take a cab, there is an expensive service to send your luggage to hotels in the heart of the town. However the Excelsior Parco is outside the no-drive zone, and so they pick you up from the ferry with your luggage and drop you off when you leave. The drive to town from the hotel is only about 5 minutes, and so you don't miss much by staying here.
3) The breakfast spread is great for European standards. They have both the standard cold fare, but also food prepared hot as you request. This is not standard in Europe, and we much appreciated it.
4) The staff made the experience very family friendly - a lot of small touches that were quite nice. We all liked the welcome drinks after we arrived there. We were traveling with a 9 year old, and a 4 month old baby. However the staff here were very helpful, taking care of the stroller for us, and getting the stroller in and out of the car as needed, and making the right recommendations for family friendly dining and activities (by the lady at the front desk - I forget her name). Also our son liked the candy at the front desk, and so they gave him a big bag of candy when we were leaving - which made him very happy.
5) Although we had a late check out, they were quite accomodating and let us stay in the room until it was time to leave without an additional charge. They did not try to hurry us out earlier, and in fact sent up hot chocolate for the family while we were waiting to leave.
6) Since we were traveling with a baby, we liked the fact that there is a well stocked super market for locals very close to the hotel - so that we could pop in and out to get kids supplies as needed.
7) The rooms while not lavish, were kept very neat and clean - with better than average bathrooms for small hotels in Europe. The second day of our stay, they had a better room available than the one we had paid for, and so they upgraded us at no extra cost. The views from that room were great, and we enjoyed sitting on the balcony, drinking wine and enjoying the view.
8) Lastly, the staff were very friendly. Most hotels are quite impersonal, but everybody here worked hard to make you feel special. In particular Carlos who drove us around, and who always had a smile and a great attitude.
