“Amazing!!!”
Reviewed May 5, 2013

We traveled to Capri, Italy for vacation and chose to stay at the La Minerva based on reviews and photos we saw online. When we arrived the photos and reviews did not do this cute boutique hotel justice...the hotel was unbelievable! It was everything and more that we were looking for in a relaxing hotel with beautiful views. Best of all the service and the people were exceptional; Luigi, Antonino, Marco and Kamal were the best! We highly recommend La Minerva to anyone staying in Capri, you will have an unforgettable experience!

Room Tip: Make sure to book a room with a seaview...totally worth it! Unbelievable to wake up to.

Our favorite hotel in all of Italy, largely due to the two brothers who own this fantastic hotel – Antonino and Luigi – and their excellent staff, Marco and Kamal. We cannot say enough about how great Antonino was – from explaining the best things to explore on the island, to booking a private boat tour, to recommending and booking excellent restaurants. The hotel was beautiful and our two rooms (for our family of four) were terrific. Both rooms had huge terraces with great views, were clean and perfectly decorated. The location is perfect too – close enough to the center of town to walk there in five minutes, but far enough away to enjoy the peace and serenity the island has to offer. We will definitely come back to Capri and will stay at La Minerva again, without hesitation.

This is an amazing hotel. The location is gorgeous, the hotel is beautifully decorated and it excels in the areas that you want a hotel to excel in - service, cleanliness, amenities, etc. It's also very reasonably priced. We were met at the dock and our luggage (lots and lots of it) was whisked away to the hotel. We had a very comfortable and immaculate room that easily accomodated three of us, plus a spacious balcony with a delightful view. The hotel includes a wonderful breakfast served on a beatiful terrace. The staff will recommend and arrange any activity you desire. From the time we arrived until the time we left the delightful people of La Minerva did everything they could to make our stay perfect. Honestly, the glowing reviews of this hotel understate how great it is. In all of my travels and stays at hotels in all ranges, La Minerva is simply the best.

I can't wait to go back!

Wonderful place. I know that everybody who stayed there says so, but it's absolutely true.
My husband and I stayed there only for one night but it was an amazing stay from the very beginning when one La Minerva employee met us in the ferry port at arrival and took care of our luggage. Then we were given a free upgrade to a deluxe room due to a cancellation which we didn't expect but therefore probably had one of the best rooms in the hotel (number 41) with a spacious terrace facing a fabulous sea view. After that we were treated with welcome drinks and home-made pastries and so on.... Everybody in the hotel was very polite, helpful and attentive.
The room was cleaned in the evening, the towels were changed.
The bathroom was also pretty spacious, with very nice standard size paraben-free cosmetics.
Breakfast was served on the top floor terrace (again: outstanding view over the sea) and was delicious: a great variety of warm meals (eggs prepared in different ways, crepes oatmeal...), home-made panna cotta and Capri cake (just heaven in the mouth!).
To sum up: we travel a lot, stay in a lot of places but it looks like La Minerva is our top place and we would love to return. I strongly recommend it for a nice romantic escape at a really high and fancy level.

Room Tip: Room 41 has large balcony with an excellent view of the sea and the pool area.

This is the first time I've ever written a Tripadvisor hotel review, but having just checked out of La Minerva today I felt compelled to do so. Myself and my fiancée have just spent 3 magical days on Capri, and our decision to stay at La Minerva played a huge part in making the trip so special.

I was expecting a reasonable 4 star hotel, but what we got was a beautiful boutique hotel that was immaculately presented, extremely comfortable, in a great location, and with a level of service that puts many 5 star hotels I've staying in to shame.

Luigi and Antonino were an absolute delight - they were full of useful advice and got anything we needed sorted immediately, as well as running a slick team of staff - I don't know the name of the main guy serving breakfast, but his smile and brilliant service made an already outstanding breakfast even better.

Given the small size of the hotel everything felt personal and the place never felt busy. Each time we arrived back at the hotel after being out for the day it felt like returning to a peaceful home. We were gutted we had to leave!

I will be recommending this place to all my friends. Great work Luigi, Antonino and team.

Room Tip: We stayed in the room on the top floor, just off the lobby and lounge (room 11). It was beautiful, a...

Delightful room. Outstanding service by Antonino and Marco and the gentleman who serves breakfast on the terrace. Really loved the room service and turn-down service (room service comes in twice a day). They restocked the amenities every day, and we liked that. Huge walk-in closet space. Breakfast on the terrace was delicious...fresh tasting blood orange juice and yummy benedict! Loved that they were really flexible on breakfast time...you can have it until around 11am, which is later than most of other hotels we stayed at.

We used their laundry service, which was not the cheapest, but still a little cheaper than other hotels in Italy, and with better service since they usually had our clothes ready by that same evening.

Really appreciated the hospitality and tips from Antonino and Marco. Happily helped us plan and book activities around the island, and gave us a map to help us around. We really appreciated all of that.

Our only complaints were that the internet seemed to be turned off at exactly 9PM each night, and it just was not that strong throughout our stay. That was frustrating, so we used the internet mostly during the daytime since it kept being turned off at night.

Other than that, we really did enjoy our stay and would return to La Minerva again. Really felt like a retreat because of the white decor and terrific service. Capri is such a relaxing place. Make sure you come here to RELAX, not just to shop and follow some strict activity itinerary, because hey this is an island retreat -- slow down a little and breathe in the fresh. There's lots of that here. :)

Room Tip: Deluxe Room was perfect, with an excellent view over the treetops.

I can undoubtedly say that La Minerva was our favorite hotel during our trip of 14 days through Italy. The service and friendliness at this family owned hotel really stood out. The hotel porter met us at the ferry and our bags made it to the hotel by the time we had caught the funicular and wonder through the streets of Capri. Our room was not yet ready, and we were treated to drinks and cookies in the reception area, overlooking a gorgeous vista. Our room was fantastic, with a large balcony overlooking Capri. Antonio gave us great advice on the sites of Capri and Anacapri, as well as making reservations for great restaurants. 2 of my favorite days in Italy, which included 4 days in Florence, 2 days in Positano, 2 days in Venice and 3 days in Tuscany. We will definitely be back.
