“Old fashioned charm”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 24, 2010

This is not a 5 star hotel but you get a decent room and breakfast in a good location at a decent price. There are no extras. Bed linen and towels are changed daily. Quiet location close to Piazetta with excellent views towards Capri town and Marina Piccola. Staff are friendly and helpful. The major negative is the lack of air conditioning as the fan/dehumidifiers are noisy. Capri is often very humid in the summer months.. We would be happy to return to this hotel.

Villa Helios is a "casa per ferie" (holiday home). it has 23 rooms, very cheap, very clean and very quiet, but in centre of Capri town. Reach it from the Piazetta at end of the fernicular, taking the arch on the right , between house numbers 11 and 12. In 5 minutes you reach Hotel J.W. Marriott Tiberio Palace and Villa Helios is just a few meters further, on the right. It is a beautiful old villa, with big garden with old trees. I had room 3, a single for 70 Euro with great and quiet garden view. Wonderful view of Capri from terrace on 2nd floor. There is a chapel inside for praying. The money goes to the next door retirement home. The staff are not nuns but lays. Open all day and night. There' a concierge at night. Rooms have no TV but there is one in the breakfast lounge. All very pretty and clean and a super wonderful find at low price. Room has ensuite bathroom, small but OK. There's a fan when it is hot. Writing table and good closet for clothes. Villa Helios soap and shampoo in bathroom. Good breakfast, but no eggs. Juices are from bottles of a very good brand (Yoga).
Very friendly staff. Mira, who answered my emails in good English personally took my heavy luggage to my room, up a flight of steps. Highly recommended and not just for rucksack budget travellers.

Villa Helios, a unique villa that stands out for its peculiar style, halfway between Liberty and Moresco architecture. Villa Helios is steps away from 'La Piazzetta', Capri's renowned main square. The hotel rooms have quite nice features, the perfect place for a holiday in a gorgeous location. Rooms on the second floor have a stunning view over the town and the Mediterranean Sea. Rooms on the first and ground floor provide a comfortable and intimate space, some of them with a cozy little terrace with lounge chairs and tables. Every room features its own bathroom with shower and/or bathtub, TV set and air conditioning. Villa Helios also features a wonderful private terrace overlooking the Island's south bay and the town. The ideal place to have a relaxing aperitif at the sunset. All around Villa Helios is a stunning garden, a majestic Ficus tree's kingdom, which has been living here for centuries. Something really worth of seeing. ... more   less
