We stayed at La Floridiana for two nights in late May 2013 and could have easily stayed longer. Capri is the playground of Italy's rich and famous meaning that you can easily spend several hundred euros a night for a decent hotel near the centre.
Therefore, we were delighted with this hotel, particularly as it was tucked away in an excellent location just a flight of steps away from one of Capri's many renowned designer shopping streets.
Upon arrival we were talked through a map of the area and the island as a whole and given the news that's always good to hear; that we'd been upgraded from a standard city view room to an executive room with sea view and a jacuzzi on the balcony. Great!
However, my dreams of sipping prosecco from the bubbling tub in the sun were short lived as once we reached the room I was informed that as we had only been upgraded to this class of room, the jacuzzi wasn't available to us. This seemed a little mean after the initial good news, but hey ho the room upgrade was better than nothing.
The room itself was spacious but a rather strange mish mash of ultra modern appliances like flat screen tv and fridge, mixed in with furniture and curtains which could have come straight out of my grandmas house. The bathroom too was in need of a modernising refit. It was a bit of a shame as the rest of the hotel reaches such a high standard.
The daily breakfast was excellent with a large range of hot and cold options and we found the staff throughout the hotel to be excellent.
The pool and sun deck area is also very good to have and gives this hotel the feeling of a much more expensive place than is the reality.
Overall this is a great value place which has everything you need to enjoy a stay on Capri. Were the owners to invest in bringing the rooms more up to date then I would have had no hesitation in giving this place 5 stars.
