Ranked #1 of 40 Hotels in Capri
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed September 13, 2013

My wife & I recommend La Minerva, without reservation! The hotel is ideally located, close to the Piazetta without being too close, and with lovely sea views, especially from the breakfast terrace. The hotel and rooms (we spent 4 nights in a De Luxe room and 2 nights in a Superior room) are furnished very tastefully, simply and to a very high standard. The owners, brothers Luigi and Antonino, were very considerate and welcoming, even before we had arrived and throughout our stay. Their recommendations (walks, restaurants, etc) and practical advice (travel, logistics, etc) were helpful and accurate. The staff of the hotel, especially Marco and Kamal, were warm, genuine and very professional.

This is a gem of a hotel and it is a luxury treat to stay here. If we get the chance to return to Capri, we won't stay anywhere else!

We are just back from our stay at Hotel La Minerva, Capri.
We had originally been looking at another hotel but after a review on Trip Advisor, decided to book up La Minerva.
They say the best things come in small packages - absolutely true. A 4Star Hotel with a 5 star experience and a small, boutique hotel which prides itself of special care and attention for all it's guests. The rooms are beautiful, the pool area and breakfast terrace is stunning, with views to die for and the breakfast itself - second to none. All the staff are attentive and caring and have worked with the Esposito family for a long time - which again, speaks volumes to the value placed by the owners, on their staff. We will go back - definitely - and we wouldn't stay anywhere else.

Room Tip: We had a superior room that comes with a terrace and sea view - it was beautifule. But if you are on...

These reviews are spot on. The Aussie in Stockholm summarized our experience well. The guys are great. Rooms are clean and beautiful. They even left tea lights and flowers in our room for when we returned from dinner. I was concerned about getting my bags to the hotel. We called before getting on the ferry in Naples and were advised that Giovanni would meet us at the pier. They charged 5 Eur per bag to bring them to the hotel. You can take a tram (cable car) to the main part of town for less than 2 eur a ticket. Then it's maybe a 10 minute, really great walk.

Luigi and his brother welcomed us again back to Capri in the wonderful setting of la minerva. Everything was just perfect and they will always go way out to get things absolutely right for their guests. Thank you for a great stay!

Room Tip: Top rooms have better view but terrace on 3rd floor down was super at the end of the day!

Thanks to Marco, Kamal, Giovanni, Luigi and Antonino for a perfect stay on Capri.
It all starts with being met by Giovanni at the harbour - he takes care of your luggage so you can make your way up to the hotel hassle free.
The rooms are beautifully equipped, with incredibly comfortable beds and wonderful views. How indulgent to be able to soak in the spa bath while taking in the view of the sea!
The pool area, with lots of sun lounges and personal service from Marco and Kamal, is a great spot to relax. We had a delicious salad and a few glasses of Rose sitting in the Cabana area.
Breakfasts on the top floor were perfect - Kamal insisted that we try both the Eggs Benedict and the crepes. Delicious!
And Antonino and Luigi were fantastic in recommending and booking restaurants, organising transport, and suggesting activities.
The only downside was that we weren't there for longer - 2 nights isn't enough!
I can't recommend La Minerva enough - we'll be back.

The beauty of Capri was perfected by the elegance and hospitality of La Minerva. The service is remarkable – as they graciously recommended and reserved activities and restaurants prior to our arrival. The hotel and grounds are immaculate. Sipping one of Marco’s margaritas by the pool is simply perfection! I hate to ruin the surprise but we were delighted to return to our room in the evening to find lit candles, music playing, and a listing of Capri events. The attention to detail is incomparable. Thank you Luigi, Antonino and your entire staff for making our first trip to Capri so wonderful!

My husband and I stayed in Capri for 4 nights in April of 2013. We chose this hotel based on trip advisors reviews as well as La Minerva's website, their website's photos are very accurate. We were treated so well before, during and after our stay at what is now our favorite hotel in the world! Antonino, Luigi, Kamal and Marco were what made this hotel exceed our already high expectations. The rooms are very clean and well appointed and the setting is spectacular. The breakfast is lovely and the service is genuine and non-intrusive, yet always helpful. The hotel is a family run operation to which Antonino and Luigi's parents should be very proud, they have raised 2 delightful sons who will be forever remembered. They are very knowledgable and have many great suggestions on where to eat and what to do. I have many wonderful memories of our stay and nearly six months later, I am still dreaming of the day I will return. We will definitely be back to visit. If you plan a trip to the Amalfi Coast, which is a must see place to visit in Italy, then you should first spend some time in Capri and second don't miss out and stay here.
