“Charming hotel tucked away from Capri Chaos”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 21, 2013

What a charming hotel. We stayed here on a hiking trip. It is tucked away off the main square and you feel like you are a million miles away. The breakfast was good and the rooms very spacious with a small outside covered balcony Friends were celebrating their wedding anniversary and upgraded at a very reasonable price to the Jackie O suite. The hotel then helped us put on a small anniversary party. And if you are lucky Matisse the resident "gatto blanco" will honor you with a "walk by." Lovely terrace to have drinks, but it was sometimes hard to find the bar tender.

We stayed in the hotel for three days and absolutely loved it.
The location of Gatto Bianco was what we wanted: in the center of the pedestrian zone, two steps from La Piazzetta, beautiful gardens, cafes, restaurants, boutiques, in a very short walking distance from the bus, funicular and taxi stations.
In the same time it was a pretty quite place with unique atmosphere, beautifully decorated.
I loved the fact, that my favourite Clark Gable had stayed in the hotel decades ago:). The hotel with a history- that was appealing to us.
The staff was friendly and eager to help, our room was clean and comfortable. The white cat was there:). Looking forward to come back some time soon.

L'indimenticabile Clarke Gable ha soggiornato con la divina Sofia Loren durante le riprese della Baia di Napoli. Mio padre, Giovanni, mi raccontava sempre che i due famosi attori furono quasi travolti da un tifone che si abbattè sulla troupe mentre giravano in piazzetta. Spero di mostrare alla gentile cliente le foto dell'attore al Gatto Bianco.

This hotel named after famous "movie star white cat" which still roams around the outdoor lounges is just a hint of unique character to be found there. Excellent option indoor or outdoor eating areas,catering to all tastes. Rooms with a balcony allowing a view of the surrounding sea. Stepping out the front door you are immediately within steps of picturisque St Stephen piazza/townhall clock, to the right a tiny stroll leads into bistros, shops and main high end shopping. ( would advise to do main high ticket souvenir item purchases on mainland if you can). One can't help but to enjoy the luxury of it all on the island - hotel and surroundings.

Room Tip: Far end corner rooms allowed a better view of the surrounding water but sun hit all balconies

Ringraziamo delle belle parole riservate al nostro hotel. Il Gatto Bianco è una piccola oasi dove ancora si percepisce il genius loci dell'isola. Il cliente ritrova nei nostri saloni e nelle nostre stanze un luogo dell'anima.

We stayed here in September 2012 and had the most unforgettable weekend. Rooms are in true Capri-style (painted tiles, Mediterranean colours), impeccably clean and very spacious. The staff were very helpful and nice and beyond themselves to help us or to answer any of our questions. We were made feel at home and truly spoiled every day, starting with the wonderful breakfast in the garden. We even managed to get a picture with Matisse - the utterly charming white cat!

Neat place, Great location, easy to get to once you find it. Close to the main piazza and where the taxi and bus stop are located. Only negative was the wifi only worked in the main lobby area as our walls were to thick to receive the signal. The staff was helpful and let us keep our bags there after we checked out. I found all the beds in Italy to not be the most comfortable, that being said I can sleep anywhere.

Garbo Bianco is probably one of the best value hotels in Capri.
I stayed here twice and each time my stay was nothing but excellent. It is centrally located and within a couple of blocks from public transportation and all the high end shops, not to mention a block away from the hottest restaurants and hangout spots. Breakfast is abundant and fresh. Rooms showcase effortless Capri decor; if you prefer to have your own apartment instead, you can book your stay at the 'valentino' apartment (a bi level modern apartment), I stayed here the first time and loved it.

This place is oozes authentic, old-style Capri. This charming hotel is in the perfect location just off the main square, is clean and welcoming. Its staff could not have been more helpful and the breakfast and coffee were great ! If it's glitz and glamour and bling you're after, this is not your place. But if it's cool and calm and a bit of class that you seek, then you can't go far wrong with Gatto Bianco.
