“What a great experience”
Reviewed June 9, 2012

This is a very nice hotel in Capri. The room was very comfortable and clean and in a very nice and quiet location - close to the main square.

The service at this hotel is the greatest. Ettore the owner, is very personable and helpful. He had great suggestions for hikes and restaurants. The restaurant he recommended was one of the best experiences we had in Capri - incredible food and views in a family run restaurant.

If you go to Capri, this hotel is the best bargain in town and Ettore will help make sure you get the most from your time in Capri.

Me and my mom stayed here for four nights and had a great time! The room was very good, very clean and comfy. The location is great and Ettore (and the rest of the hotel personel) is very helpful. I will for sure return to this hotel again visiting Capri.

Located just over the hill from the shopping district on a quiet side street, this comfortable small hotel has a family feel and friendly staff, tidy rooms and a beautiful breakfast terrace. And they have native-born Ettore, the owner, who will personally make sure that your stay in Capri is all you've hoped for. Suggestions for "off the beaten path" restaurants, hiking trails, and local travel were all right on and made us feel confident in every move we made. Our cozy room had views overlooking gardens and the old monestary with the Faraglioni and Mediterranean in the distance. A perfect place to escape the hordes of daytrippers and get a feeling of living in the neighborhood.

My wife and I spent 2 nights here while on our honeymoon. Capri is an awesomely beautiful island and this hotel is a great location from which to explore it. The owner, Ettore, speaks perfect English (and Italian), can provide detailed info on what to do, and is an overall great person. The room is cozy, but clean, and the bathrooms are also clean and spacious. We had a veranda, which is a great place to relax, eat breakfast (included in the price and delivered to your room free of charge), and soak in the view.

The only real negative I noticed is that it can be a bit noisy. We were in room 48 and could hear sounds from the hallway, front desk, and sometimes other rooms. Not a big deal since it's a quiet area of the island, but if you're a light sleeper who likes to sleep late, you might be awoken in the morning.

It's a strong possibility that we'd return to this hotel if we visited Capri again.

Very well localized. We had an excelent time on La tosca and I wish i had stayed a couple more nigths. The hotel is very clean with a nice atmosphere, the breakfast is very good. I my opinion it worth every cent. If you are goigng to stay in thixs hotel as Ettore for tips in restaurants and tours, you will not regret.

We stayed at this hotel during a last minute trip to Capri. We considered ourselves lucky to find a room at Hotel La Tosca, although the room rate was more than what I expected. But maybe that is just Capri prices in the start of the peak season.

The hotel is in a secluded little street that is a bit hard to find on the first try, but it is very close to the piazetta once you figure it out. Just one street past is a lovely path right by the gardens!

The room was very clean and simply furnished. The beds were very comfortable.

Our room had a terrace which was quite enjoyable after a long day of travelling. It had a table with chairs, where we had a nice simple dinner, and lounge chairs to enjoy the nice breeze. However, i was disappointed with my sliver of a seaview, when my reservation indicated that I had a sea view room. You could see the sea if you tip toe and peek through the trees

Breakfast was served on the terrace in front, which was very enjoyable. It was a simple croissant/bread with cappucino.

WiFi was also free, but we never used it since there is so much to do on the island.

Overall, the staff was very friendly and eager to make reservations. They also gave us good advise when there was an unexpected strike on our last day, which limited options off the island.

We stayed 4 nights at Hotel La Tosca in May 2012. Getting to Hotel is easy. When your ferry arrives at the Marina Grande, you are best to off load your large suitcases to the Porter who will get it to the hotel for you at 8 euro each piece. Catch the cable car up to the main Piazza, and from there it is a short walk to the hotel past some beautiful shops.

From the time you arrive Ettore & his crew are perfect hosts and very welcoming. You couldn't ask for a better, more knowledgable guide to the island than Ettore. His ability to give you ideas and fill your day is fantastic and a great asset to have.

Our room #48 was a nice size with great terrace with partial view of the water. Everything was clean and fresh. The internet connection was a little tempermental at times, but did the job.
Shower towels were a little on the thin side too but were changed daily so we had no issue there. At times it was a little noisy with many hard surfaces for sound to bounce off, but that has more to do with the guests than the hotel.

The hotel is in a perfect spot, just a short walk from the main piazza, so you are away from all the tourist & day trippers, whilst being right there near the centre. A nice stroll down via Krupp past the gardens etc. to some amazing vista's.

We would recommend Hotel La Tosca to anyone!

Room Tip: Rooms 48 & 49 looked nice from what we could see.
