“Great Location”
Reviewed July 22, 2013

I had not been to Capri in almost 20 years and couldn’t remember too much about it except that I stayed in Anna Capri. I was surprised by how many high end shops there are in Capri and how much of a destination of the rich and famous it has become. Our travel agent had set-up taxi and ferry transfers from the train station in Naples to our hotel. This included luggage transfers, which was very helpful because our hotel was a bit of a walk from where cars cannot go any more. However, it is less than a perfect system and it took our bags about an hour or so (my wife says two hours) to arrive at the hotel after we did. When we left our bags were picked up two hours before our ferry was to leave for Sorrento. When we arrived at the dock, our bags were nowhere to be seen and our travel service agent that met us at the hotel and took us to the ferry could not find out where they were until the gang plank was going up. She was then told that they had gone on an earlier ferry. When we arrived in Sorrento, out bags were on the dock with three men standing around them with their arms raised. When we told them the bags were ours, they said good, because they didn’t know what to do with them and were going to send them back to Capri.

Anyway. The hotel was very nice and in a great location, which is not that far a walk from the center of town, but far enough to be in a very quiet and beautiful spot with breathtaking views. The staff was very friendly as well and we had a private balcony with views of the garden and the sea, though through the trees. The pool area is very nice and perfect for breakfast and relaxing. The hotel restaurant is supposed to be very good, but we could not get reservations when we arrived and opted to eat in town. I would recommend making reservations to any restaurant ahead of time during the peak season if you can because it can be hard to get them when you arrive.

Room Tip: Rooms highter up towards the pool/reception have a better veiw of the sea

This place is an oasis, quiet & reserved away from the trashy tourist route. The highest of standards are demonstrated at every level from the moment you enter the staff are so welcoming & attentive you would think you were family! The rooms are enormous, bathrooms so generous with huge bathtubs and quality accessories. Tasteful period furniture & soft lounges complete the suits. The balcony has deck chairs & a furnished entertaining area. The restaurant has a Michellin Star, gastronomically your in superb hands. The concierge could not do enough for us, they arranged diving trips, boat tours, booking at local restaurants where only the locals are in the know. They made this holiday memory the glory that it was! I can't wait to return!!!!!

I first had dinner at Villa Brunella 15 years ago and vowed to return as a guest. I have returned repeatedly over the last 5 years. They took care of me after my Father died and continue to care about my needs still. The staff, surroundings, and the food are fantastic. I will go back every year to recharge.

Room Tip: All rooms have great views, from suites to standard rooms on the garden

This year I stayed in Villa Brunella for the 9th time. It was excellent. There is no question for me where to stay in beautiful Capri. Everybody in this family run small hotel is friendly and helpful.
The rooms are spacious and shining clean, a meal at the pool is delicious for your mouth and eyes as well. If you want to know Capri you have to be in Villa Brunella. Villa Brunella offers you all the bests what Capri can offer. I will be there next year again.

We stayed with my husband and my two kids for a short 3 days stay at the begging of June.
My review can only be super positive.
Excellent location, near Punta Tragara, spacious and very clean rooms.
A warm staff was welcoming us every morning at the pool to have a fresh baked piece of cake and a creamy cappuccino.
We will go back again.
Thanks Villa Brunella for giving us a sweet taste of Capri.

My new bride and I recently went on our honeymoon to Capri & Amalfi Coast. In Capri we stayed at Villa Brunella in room # . It is by far the best room in this small but lovely hotel. The owner and staff are great and friendly. The room is on the side of a mountain looking down at the pool and the small beach beyond that. Across the view is of a huge mountain and the Sea. They arranged a boat trip around Capri Island on a private boat that was fabulous. What an experience. This is a MUST stay hotel if you are in Capri.

We stayed at Villa Brunella towards the end of May 2013. Unfortunately the weather was very chilly/cold. Very windy the whole 3 days we were there. Vincenzo who has been the owner for many decades is a wonderful host. He speaks very good English too. We had suite 54. This is a large room with a balcony that looks over the pool and a great view of the sea and the rocky shoreline. You will love this view. The room does not have air conditioning. We certainly didn't need it for our stay and maybe one doesn't need it at all in Capri but now you know. The bed was comfortable and the balcony had a table and chairs along with two lounge chairs to get some sun. TV works good and I as I recall there is one English speaking channel. I had problems with the Internet but a refreshed code helped. The grounds are very nice. The location of the hotel is a little walk from the main piazza of Capri. It is in a nice quiet area close to the famous Faranglioli Rocks. The wait staff is attentive. There was confusion at breakfast since usually it is down by the pool but with the windy and cool weather it was held mostly in the restaurant. Concerning the breakfast that comes with your lodging they are quick to get you a bread basket and coffee. If you want a glass of Orange Juice they charge you extra same as if you want a yogurt. I think this is pretty ridiculous due to the price you are paying for the room. A yogurt and some juice would be nice to have included. If you want a big breakfast well that is certainly extra. For dinner the restaurant is excellent. I think Trip Advisor has it rated number one. If you are looking for a hotel a little out of the beaten path with great views you should consider this hotel. There are many, many steps so a handicapped person may have issues. I would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Rooms 54 and 56 will give you a nice view. There are lower rooms that just have a garden view.
