“Great place that's not so expensive as neighboring hotels”
Reviewed July 6, 2014

This hotel offers great value in a terrific neighborhood. I have been to Capri now 3 times. This is my favorite area to stay. The first two times I got to stay at a 5 star hotel which was fantastic. This is NOT a 5 star hotel; however, it's more than adequate and it's clean and charming with character. Simone and Micaela at the front desk are fantastic as is the guy who works at the restaurant and poolside. Would I stay here again? Absolutely!!

This is a gem of a hotel! It is a beautiful walk to the hotel (worth the trek!) and the staff is some of the nicest I have experienced anywhere in the world. The grounds are beautiful and the room was very spacious, clean and beautiful tile/decorations. There is a nice big tub and maybe the best part is the balcony. You could sit on the balcony and never want to leave….we experienced it in rain and shine and loved it both ways. Reading the comments before me it seems like they have taken suggestions and greatly increased the choices for breakfast. In the midst of very expensive hotels this is the best option I could imagine even if you wanted to spend 1000 per night!

My partner and I stayed at La Certosella for two nights and it was not nearly enough. From check in to check out we had a wonderful experience. Michaela and her co-worker at the front desk (whose name I can't remember sadly) were extremely helpful and welcoming. The gardens were beautiful, our room was spacious with a beautiful sea view, and the poolside breakfasts were splendid. We are definitely coming to stay here again, but next time for longer.

This hotel is a great little oasis in a sea of large hotels with no character. Views are great and the staff is extremely nice. I also like how this hotel does not nickel and dime the guests unlike the other hotels which are already charging >1000 euro a night.

This place is located on the smartest Via in town. It is surrounded by upscale 5-star hotels and so makes you feel special without the price tag! Good value by Capri standards and a lovely old building with nice gardens, a small (if chilly!) pool and a nice sun-deck. Most rooms have a sea view and nice balcony (although ours was on the ground floor and had a garden view rather than sea). The staff are really great - very chatty and knowledgable (the night porter is good for a chat when you get back from dinner). On the downside, the bathroom in our room could have done with a facelift (shower was blocked with limescale when we got there but in fairness they fixed it right away when I mentioned it), and the breakfast was only OK - some more fresh fruit, fresh juice (as opposed to bottled) and better choice of hams / cheese etc would have been good. Overall though, a good choice if you are staying in Capri - very handy for town and restaurants, walks etc - and they give you free entry to a choice of two beaches / lido's, the nearest of which is just down the lane (and 300 steps!).

Room Tip: Avoid ground floor if you want a view - although you may pay extra.

Dear Guest,

thank you for your review about "La Certosella". We are glad for it, because you gave us some indications to improve, like the breakfast choice and small faults.

The rooms with garden view are the same of the sea view ones, with same services and same quality: the price is also the same. We assign sea view rooms just on our availability and on guest specific requests. If we have only garden view rooms, we inform our guests about it before the confirmation: it's the best that we can do for an hotel with only 12 deluxe rooms!

Thank you for gaving us the opportunity to exlplain it and for your very kind words about the staff: over the efficiency, our priority is to be people of reference for our guests.

We hope that you will be back in our hotel, thank you again for this great review!

Best regards

Wonderful location, although near to shops and restaurants very quiet, perfect for relxation. You can have breakfast on a terrace viewing to Marina Piccola and can order for example eggs without extra fee for this. The staff is very very kind and you get answers to all your questions. If you don't want to speak english in Italy (like me as a German), they answer you also in italian, sometimes in a little bit german or even in spanish - so you don't have any problems to understand them. They also love our little dog, that's very important for me and my wife. Next year we want to come back.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with view to Marina Piccola.

They give us a room in the old part. If it would have be properly restaured it would have been fine but the forniture was old and there was an small sofa covered with old clothes.
The painting was no clean and the humidity smell was not nice in the area...
Maybe the have better rooms but this one was not worthy for 200 eur/night
I must say the bathroom was new, thanks God! Ant the staff was very kind.
Swimming pool & breakfast nice.

Dear Guest,

thank you for your kind words about the staff and the breakfast/swimming pool services, but we are sorry for your review about your room.

Standard rooms are in the ancient (but steadily renovate) part of the hotel (in fact, you sad that the bathroom was new, and it is true), and the sensation of "old" usually doesn't affect the goodness of the services, though in high season the rate of standard rooms is 35% less than deluxe rooms! If you had problems with the style of the room, we invite you to try a deluxe room, in a - totally - new building.

Thank you for your review!

Best regards

Staff.
