“Attitude problem won't even consider this place”
Reviewed August 1, 2013

So, while we didn't actually stay at this hotel, we arrived today at lunchtime from positano to try it for lunch...we were turned away by a snotty lady and her Minyans at the front desk saying "only for our hotel guests" ...with the restaurant half empty . Sfortunato, your attitude will ensure we never ever try it...despite being in the area often
We ended up at Fraglioni which was simply perfect and beautiful attitude as well as great wines etc
We shared our experience with our hotel in Positano which is amazing, the Palazzo Murat

Stayed August 2013, traveled with family

After returning yet again, our 7th stay ,this hotel just gets better.The staff are superb, and their hospitality and warmth never falters.Gennaro's lunches and evening cocktails are as wonderful as ever as he & his staff seem to predict your every wish.The solitude and calm of this hotel is just wonderful and it is highly recommended to anyone who is looking for a restful stay on this island.

Room Tip: all rooms face the sea, but the higher floors have a better view.

We can't wait to return next year. Room, staff, food, all top-notch. It is a little bit of heaven! Feels like you belong to a small club, and the members and guests are all happy to see you. Three days was not enough.

We had stayed at Hotel Caesar Augustus on Capri for two nights on a tour trip the 1st week of May (2013). We ended coming back for two more nights on our own the next week and stayed at La Scalinatella. We liked it much better than the Caesar Augustus. Our room was fantastic (especially for Italy)- probably 600 Sq Ft. -2 baths and great view. The staff couldn't have been more friendly and accommodating. When we left, they booked a private driver and tour of Pompei- they took care of everything! If you are looking for a great hotel, this is it.

Astonishing location, incredible people working here make you feel home. The quality of the bar and restaurant make you feel you do not have to move from here. But Capri have too many good place to eat so you'll take your walking shoes and go! But if you don't want to move you can spend all day here. Great rooms, with subtle luxuries yet elegant and very comfortable. An AC that if you want can transform your room in a fridge in a matter of minutes( and this is non very frequent in Italy) yet very quiet. Room service the quickest and most courteous I have aver experienced. And I have seen a lot of superstar place falling on this not simple task. The perfect hotel in Capri. Not very cheap... Keep it in mind. But if you want to fell like a loved king come here once in your life. Worth to make a Small mortgage!

Room Tip: ask for room on the second floor: They have a HUGE balcony! and a great view!

As we disembarked from the ferry on Capri, we were met by Sergio from La Scalinatella. He took our bags and sent them along to the hotel and then escorted us to the funicular where he gave us tickets and directions to the hotel from the piazza. Our rooms were upgraded and we had gorgeous views of the town and the Bay of Naples as well as a private patio for our leisure moments. Service was impeccable for the two days of our stay. The rooms were spacious, clean and well appointed. We even had his and hers bathrooms. The hotel is decorated in a 1930s period style, but everything worked, including free Wi-fi. We would definitely stay there on our next visit to Capri.

Room Tip: The suites with terrace and his/hers bathrooms are worth the extra cost for the luxury and view you...

We enjoyed our three night stay in the Scalinatella. (We had booked the Casa Morgano, which is under the same ownership, and were transferred on arrival, without explanation).

The small property (a converted mansion?) is peacefully located on the Via Tragara, a short distance from the Via Camerelle, which links it to the Piazetta, a walk of less than ten minutes - although keen shoppers might take longer as the Via Camerelle is the premier retail location on the island. There is no taxi access but given notice the hotel will transport guests’ baggage from the ferry terminal (for a fee).

Typical for the island, the hotel clings to a slope and the views are splendid. The pool area is relatively small but looks good - we didn’t use it, as the weather wasn’t appropriate. There is free and uncomplicated WiFi throughout the building and a public computer in the lobby. The immediate area is quiet as the day-trippers generally don’t go there. The hotel isn't suitable for people with mobility handicaps (but neither is Capri).

Our room was large and elegantly furnished, with a terrace and a big and well-equipped bathroom.

Breakfast is a combination of a buffet and table service and we the quality and choice was good. Apart from breakfast, the hotel provides only snack food.

All the staff we met were very pleasant, efficient and helpful.

The Scalinatella is not cheap and extras are expensive, like everything in Capri. While it is not the five star property is claims to be, it is a good four star plus.

Tip - we thought the standard Blue Grotto trip a waste of time and money.
