We stayed in Capri Moon for three nights in September 2010. We had a delightful stay and would recommend it to anyone.
Be aware that Capri Moon is incredibly difficult to find if you are unfamiliar with the numbering system in Florence. Residential buildings have red numbers and business have black. It took us a very long time to find it, and I think that we would still be going now if a kindly shop owner didn’t take pity on us and explain.
You do need to climb 82 (we counted) steps with no lift. This should not deter you from staying here though, it is just worth keeping in mind if you have mobility issues or heavy baggage.
Franco, the owner, was an incredibly gracious host. He gave us a great restaurant tip and we ate there two nights – wish we had found it sooner (and wish I could remember the name of it...). The best pasta and pizza we had in Italy and although tourist friendly, it was not overrun.
In terms of the room, we had a lovely surprise on arrival - Franco advised us that because it was quiet, he was upgrading our room for us at no additional cost. The room was a good size, with a nice bathroom attached. Everything was extremely clean and ordered. The reception area is pleasant and clean and the whole place has a nice atmosphere.
Franco and his family live there too, so be prepared to see other people around. It is really a room in their house, although it is fairly separate and you have your own space. Breakfast was included and was wonderful! We were treated like Kings and offered tea, coffee, toast, yoghurt, pastries, juice...the list goes on. Very nice treat and it was a shame we were only able to eat there once!
It was very central, in walking distance to everything. It isn’t far from Santa Maria Novella station, unless you get lost like we did. It was a wonderful, relaxed and pleasant stay at Capri Moon and an absolute steal at the price.
