“Great location on Capri”
Reviewed July 14, 2013

Great location on Capri. Really easy to get everywhere and up/down to the marinas via funicular, busses, and taxis. Breakfast was included and adequate. Staff was very friendly, but you will pay more for any services they arrange for you - it's only a few Euros here and there, but it adds up.

I'd stay here again. Great AC!

Room Tip: Ask to be as high up as possible.

Ringraziamo vivamente i nostri clienti di Atlanta per le belle parole che hanno riservato all'albergo.
In riferimento ai costi aggiuntivi, l'unico servizio che il cliente deve pagare è quello relativo al trasporto dei bagagli da Marina Grande a Capri e viceversa. Questo servizio è gestito dalla cooperativa facchini e l'albergo non ha nessun utile. Ribadisco tutti gli altri servizi sono inclusi nel prezzo della camera.
A Capri tra l'altro è stata anche abolita la tassa di soggiorno. Se il cliente vuole essere accompagnato fino alla funicolare o fino al taxi non deve pagare assolutamente nulla.
Distinti saluti,
Renato

Very nice and clean hotel. staff is very nice, the location is great. Though they gave us a bad room on the ground floor but then we asked to change it and they were nice about it. The rooms are very clean and spacious. The decoration is very interesting and the smell in the hotel is great. Breakfast was ok, could be better.

Room Tip: Dont get the ones on the ground floor!

We recently stayed at Hotel Gatto Bianco and had a fantastic experience! My husband and I were traveling with our two children, ages 5 and 7. We reserved a quadruple room which had more than enough room to accomodate us. We also had a lovely balcony off of the room where my husband and I could sit and have an afternoon cappuccino together. Unfortunately our luggage did not make our connecting flight in Germany and the staff at the Gatto Bianco came to our rescue. Not only did they make it a priority to contact the Naples airport (Neither my husband or I speak Italian) they were able to narrow down a time frame when our bags would reach the island. We were going to already be checked out of the hotel by the time the bags were to arrive so the staff at Gatto Bianco even managed to have the bags transferred to our new location, ahead of schedule. We also LOVED the resident gatto, Matisse. What a sweet and charming mascot. My husband is allergic to cats and had absolutely no problems. The hotel is so clean it was not an issue. I really can not say enough good things about the hotel and staff. We had an unforgettable trip to Capri!

Ringraziamo i nostri amici americani delle gentili parole. Purtroppo, il problema della perdita dei bagagli negli aeroporti sta diventando un problema quasi quotidiano per noi. Tuttavia, cerchiamo in ogni modo - anche con amici che abbiamo all'aeroporto di Napoli Capodichino - di risolvere al più presto il problema e di non rovinare le vacanze ai nostri ospiti nella dolce Capri. Distinti saluti, Renato

We had a reservation for 3 nights made long before our stay. When we arrived we were given a really bad room in an alley behind the hotel. It was cold and with a brick wall just outside the window. Room number 22, stay out of it!

We pointed out directly that we wanted to change room, but wasn't allowed to do so until the next day. The new room (nr 103) was far better, like the one the hotel has on its pictures.

The breakfast is quite good, although there is the usual south European lack of things without sugar.

Room Tip: avoid room 22, try to get room 103.

I gentilissimi clienti svedesi avevano prenotato una camera standard, dal prezzo di 102,50 € al giorno con colazione. La camera 22, a cui loro si riferiscono, non si trova in un vicolo al di fuori dell'albergo, ma sul nostro terrazzo al piano terra. Ogni camera ha un riscaldamento autonomo e quindi, se avevano freddo, lo potevano accendere benissimo. Inoltre, la nostra colazione offre moltissimi prodotti della nostra terra salati: formaggi, prosciutti e salami.
Il giorno dopo, avendo ascoltato le loro lamentele, ho personalmente provveduto a cambiarli in una camera comfort, al primo piano, che ha un prezzo di listino di 310 € al giorno. Al momento di pagare il conto, i nostri amici svedesi non volevano pagare la lavanderia del costo di 48 € affermando «che in tutti gli alberghi del mondo non si paga la lavanderia». Gli ho spiegato con calma che la loro affermazione era errata, ma comunque gli ho applicato uno sconto di 18 € sul conto della lavanderia.
L'ospitalità caprese vive anche grazie all'insegnamento che il grande scrittore svedese Axel Munthe ci ha donato con il libro "La Storia di San Michele". Spero che i giovani clienti di Stoccolma l'abbiano letto con cura. Distinti saluti, Renato Esposito

What a lovely little hotel this is, in the centre of Capri. The staff is very friendly & helpful and make you feel at home right away. The breakfast is a wonderful buffet and yes there is fresh fruit salad !! I stay here several times a year , 2 nights last week and it is lovely to come back . You walk out of the hotel and you are right in the heart of the main shopping street, however it is very quiet at night . My room had a balcony overlooking the rooftops of the town. The room is cozy, clean and bathroom had many amenities like comfy slippers . Quality for a very reasonable price.

We enjoyed our short stay at Albergo Gatto Bianco. When I walked in, I couldn't help but feel a little of what Capri must have been like in the 50s - I loved it! The location is just a few steps from the main square and the designer shopping district, but we were never bothered by crowds or noise.

Our room was a good size, and the bathroom was large and well-appointed. Although it's an older hotel, everything was very clean. The staff was always helpful, and the breakfast was typical of small hotels in Italy.

If you like hotels where everything is shiny and new, this might not be the place for you. But if you like charm and character, Gatto Bianco is the place to be.

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.
