Hotel La Tosca
Ranked #4 of 40 Hotels in Capri
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed September 6, 2012

We spent 3 nights at La Tosca and were thrilled with the room, the location, the views and especially the assistance of Ettore. He recommended and mapped out a walking tour of several sites on the eastern coast of Capri including restaurant recommendations, and arranged a boat tour around the island and trip into the blue grotto. We would not have managed to fit all of these activities into our time without his assistance. Close to Piazza Umberto, Certosa Di San Giacomo, and Carthusia Perfumes. View of the Certosa and Faraglioni from the terrace! Highly recommended. Would definitely return.

Room Tip: I don't believe there are any rooms that do not have a lovely view.

This place was sensational and considering the island and it's location it's great value for money.

Breakfast could have done with fruit, it's not badly done but fruit would be an ideal addition.

In the rooms, no fridge is also a let down, these (especially in the climate) are needed.

Otherwise very helpful (Ettore was a sensational host) very clean and a lovely place to stay on the island of Capri.

My friend and I stayed here for a few days. We chose it based on the tripadvisor ratings. I wasn't disappointed! For a one star property, I don't think you can get any better than this. The rooms were clean and the hotel was perfectly located from Capri's city center with only a 5 minute walk. We stayed in a room with 2 twin beds and a clean bathroom. If you plan on going to Capri to visit the island and not relax at the hotel, this is the place. We barely spent time in the room because we were busy visiting the island and going out to eat. What I was impressed with is how helpful Ettore was in helping us plan our day. It's nice to take advice and insider info from someone who was born and raised there. We only had 3 days but the way he planned it out for, I really don't think we missed anything!

I chose this hotel simply on reviews from tripadvisor, and I couldn't be happier!
I am writing this for those families with young children wishing to visit Capri. Hotel la tosca is less than 2 mins walk to the via Krupp down to marina piccola, which is a fantastic beach, crystal clear water. It is also less than 5 mins walk to the piazetta for evening drinks or the bus and funiculare. We took a taxi up on arrival and took the funiculare back down to the port. There is no need for a porter if you have packed sensibly as the hotel is so easy to find.We had a double and a sofa bed( which the kids slept soundly on but looked a little delicate), an immaculate bathroom , full size fridge and a huge balcony with table & 4 chairs, plus 2 deckchairs. We were welcomed by a cold drink and we were addressed by name each time we entered the hotel by all the staff. They simply couldn't do enough for us.
Having spent 3 wonderful days in Capri, I would return in a heartbeat and wouldn't even look at staying elsewhere. The location couldn't have been more central. Book early, I assure you it is the only place to stay.

Room Tip: Room 50 has a sea view and the biggest balcony

Very good location: in Capri town, not far from the "famous" Piazzetta - yet in a quite spot - and easy to reach.
Helpful and warm staff. Thanks to their tips and detailed instructions we were able to walk the major tracks in two days (which cover most of "wild" Capri and some unique places for swimming). And in the evenings we were just back to the centre: no more walks or bus for a restaurant ;)
Our room was simple, comfortable and very clean.
Breakfast is indeed served on a nice terrace.
The price we paid (a discount was applied) was certainly the best deal we could find, especially seen the prices for an hotel in Capri town.

Ettore and Michele have carved out a very special niche called La Tosca. This elegant yet warm and comfortable hotel is far more than what we expected both considering the price and location.Breathtaking views, a wonderful breakfast and many above and beyond favors that Ettore did for us mostly without our even asking. The hotel, itself is crisp and clean....set in a serene flower covered lane. What's most obvious is that this couple has real passion for what they do best:care for the needs of their guests. Taste , charm and good value make La Tosca a standout in Capri..We could have easily paid so much more
For so much less...We are now planning our next return to Capri i.e. La Tosca..

What a perfect place to stay! We were in Capri for 5 days.. thinking it would be our home base and we might go to positano, etc... never happened.. Capri was awesome, who had to go anywhere else?? Capri is breathtaking and the view from hotel la tosca is picture perfect. Ettore was amazing. Every morning he sits with you and will help plan your day, making it extra special for exactly what you want to do!! Not enough can be said about the feeling that you get that he sincerely wants you to have the best time ever, and will make sure that happens. Michelle (ettore's wife) also so very helpful, as was the rest of the staff. Clean, great air conditioning ( a plus for sure!) and a lovely, wonderfully clean room. My daughter and i enjoyed it immensely. What an experience! thank you so much!
