“what other hotels can only dream about!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 8, 2014

My daughter and I went hiking on Capri and were able to stay in Tosca for 2 nights. It can get busy in the marina and the town plaza but we were out in "the bush" before that and saw few people and excellent nature. Capri trails are truly a treat with its unique capri flora, the stunning vistas, ending up somewhere in a simple but fabulous eatery. Thank you Mr Ettore for reading our mind, asking for our wishes and giving great recommendations. Apart from a nice and clean room, good breakfast, good location, isn't that what hotel business is all about?? thanks again we had a ball.

My wife and I spent 6 nights at La Tosca in April. The hotel is conveniently situated so it's only a nine minute walk to the main Piazza, where you can catch a bus to Anacapri or the Marina as well as the funicolare to Marina Grande.

The hotel is a very simple family run place managed by Ettore. He will make arrangements to have a car pick you up at Naples Airport and have your bags picked up when you leave. Capri has an incredibly good bag delivery service which costs 10 Euro per bag from the Marina to your hotel.

Ettore has a small friendly staff who make your breakfast which you can have in your room. Yiu can also have coffee and Limoncello during the day.

We love these family run places because you don't feel like a tourist and the owners have a better knowledge of the area. N addition this hotel offers incredible value for Capri.

Room Tip: Get a room with a terrace for an extra 15 Euros.

Love this hotel! What a view we got. The amenities are basic but good value and we felt relaxed straight away! Great wardrobe space and very powerful, hot shower! We went on a wonderful walk which we got told about as we ventured into town.

La Tosca really felt like a home away from home during our stay on the magic Island of Capri. We as a family of 4; 2 adults, 2 children, were given a wonderful shared room, super clean and comfortably furnished with the most amazing balcony views to the rocks of Faraglioni and the ocean. Super comfortable and quiet it was bliss to be able to go back in the evening after most of the day tourists depart and felt privileged to be able to stay. A family establishment, with the wonderful understated Ettore at the helm. Supported by his wife, father; who established the hotel, -much thanks and respect to him! and children, they all made us feel part of their extended family for our time there. Ettore is always there for everyone, with his great knowledge of the Island, its history and people. Excellent breakfast served on their balcony with million dollar views. Capri itself is a dream, easy to travel around on the unique local buses. Also, La Tosca is well located for impressive walks along the cliffs with breathtaking views for those prepared to give a little effort for great reward. Capri still has the movie star, jet-set fell of yesteryear and the walk from the beautiful town square to La Tosca is an experience in itself! Would return to La Tosca in a flash should the opportunity arise again.

A great budget option on the glorious but expensive island of Capri. The number one reason to stay here is the service. Ettore is a fantastic host. For those who are interested in doing a little walking or going to less touristy restaurants and spots, this is your place. Many hotel operators simply send you to the tourist hot spots, but Ettore sends you to places that are under the radar. This helps you avoid the crowds, save money, and have a better experience. If you are looking for a ritzy, glamorous place, this probably isn't the hotel for you. But if you are looking for a reasonably priced, friendly place, close to the center of town, look no further.

We just recently stayed at La Tosca (April 2014) and loved the choice to stay here. It had excellent views, a perfect location, decent rooms, and best of all great hospitality. The owner Ettore makes you feel like family and will help you plan your days (route planning, recommending and reserving restaurants, ... the best!!!). Don't expect all the plush amenities of fancy hotels, but with these great views and outdoor activities, you should not worry too much about these things anyways. When we visit Capri again, we will definitely stay here!

Room Tip: Room 50 had a great view with a terrace.

I recently stayed at Hotel La Tosca with my two daughters. The hotel is perched over on top of the hillside and the views were spectacular. We were greeted by the owner who was simply lovely and was extremely accommodating . We missed the ferry on the night before out of Napoli and he adjusted the rate for the missed night without a charge or an attitude. We were greeted with a smile and given a detailed itinerary of the areas that were a "must see" for our short stay in Capri and it was dead on perfect . We were served fresh juice and delicious pastries in the morning on a terrace. The room was clean and had a very private balcony. I would go again tomorrow if I could.

Room Tip: Take advantage of the luggage porters at the ferry landing. Also, wear comfortable waking shoes. Ca...
