I can easily understand the variation in reviews that this hotel gets; Capri is an expensive island, so guests' expectations are high. First, let me say that this was a perfect choice for my husband and I and our two teenage boys not only because of the price, but for other reasons as well. Upon arriving at the port, we called the hotel and they sent a van to pick us up within ten minutes (there was a fee for that, but it was convenient). When we got to the hotel, we absolutely loved the location! We enjoyed the peacefulness of being a few minutes out of town and loved walking down to the marina and watching the private yachts in the harbor at night. We also found the shuttle van to town very convenient and never had to wait long. Throughout our stay, the staff was very friendly and helpful. We were a tiny bit disappointed with our two rooms at first, only because they were at the end of the hotel and opened onto a patio that overlooked the roof of the restaurant as well as the ocean. But in the end we all enjoyed congregating on the large patio, so it worked out well for us. I would definitely be disappointed, however, if we had had rooms facing the hillside! We also enjoyed the adult pool area; since our children were teenagers, all of us could swim there, but younger children had to use a separate children's pool which was adequate but not a particularly pretty place for parents to hang out. My only real complaint about this hotel was the restaurant. The view was spectacular and the buffet breakfast was fine, but dinner was not very good. We ate there the first night, but searched out better places the rest of our stay. In sum, if you really enjoy all the details of a luxury hotel and/or like being in the middle of town, don't go to Hotel Weber. But if you prefer a beautiful setting a bit out town and are willing to overlook a few details in exchange for a more reasonable price, then this might be a great choice for you. We would definitely return there!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Weber Ambassador Hotel is a four-star luxury Capri hotel, right on the beach of Marina Piccola, the nicest of Capri Island. No beach in Capri isle and in the world is more fashionable and exclusive than Marina Piccola. This hotel is ideal for those who are looking for a totally relaxing holiday, in perfect harmony with nature and the sea, in a location well away from the bright, noisy and some time problematic Piazzetta, a very crowded place where all discos and night clubs are, and where thousand of young people spend the night in gangs. Although this is only 500 metres away, and can be reached using our free shuttle service, which runs every 5 minutes throughout the day and until 3.00 Am. From the terraces of the Ambassador Weber and from a number of the hotels bedrooms, sweeping views over the Bay of Marina Piccola, the Faraglioni rocks and Monte Solaro can be seen. For centuries this panorama has been inspiring writers and artists of worldwide fame, including Thomas Mann, Maxim Gorky and Frank Sinatra, all of whom stayed in the historic Pensione Weber. One of the oldest of the islands establishments, the pensione is now a luxurious 4 star hotel. We won't offer you "3 for 2" or "5 for 3" nights like some Capri hotels do and in which, when you book and stay only one night because the place isn't inhabitable, they make you pay for the whole stay. We will never try to keep you prisoner for longer, if you do not like the place. We will give you a 96 hour cancellation policy, not 2 weeks which is the common cancellation policy in all Italian hotels. You can book a room at the Weber Ambassador Hotel through our booking system online or through 36 different Tour Operators. ... more less
