We loved our time in Capri, and one of the biggest reasons is the guidance of Mr. Ettore. He helps everyone as much as possible suggesting them where to go, what to do and what to eat. He has so many contacts in capri - whenever we discuss a restaurant, he just calls the place right away (with the phone number already stored in his head) and makes a reservation for us. His suggestion are nearly always good, and customized to what kind of experience you like. And he really takes care of his guests.
The hotel itself is good, but not excellent. The rooms are basic and slightly small, but they are clean and contains everything you would require for staying there. The location of the hotel is very good - its 5 min walk from the main piazzetta and is very near to the Garden of Augustus (which has beautiful views of faraglioni rocks and the via krupp).
The biggest weak point is the breakfast. It just has some bread, butter/jam/honey, juice and coffee. And it gets boring very quickly. We didn't try, but if you are coming here for a longer stay, you might want to ask Mr. Ettore if there is a good cafe for breakfast around (there are a few cafes not far, so it might work).
Given the price, I think this is the best place to stay if you are in Capri, and are interested in exploring Capri. This place is definitely not meant for a holiday where you stay in the hotel and relax all the time.
On a side note, Capri itself is an excellent place to go. Beautiful views, lovely streets and great places to eat and drink.
Would definitely want to come back to Capri, and stay in Hotel La Tosca again.
