“Hidden gem in the madness of Capri”
Reviewed May 5, 2013

Delightful stay at the lovely Canasta. From the "hidden" location (a positive) to the picturesque grounds, this charming little hotel won our hearts from the start. The room was large, beautifully-tiled & airy, with a tranquil scene outside the quiet room's view. (Only small negative is that while the room-personal outside balcony was wonderful, one can no longer really view the Sea as trees in-between have grown too tall. Consider upgrading to a room with a sea view) The balcony was the perfect place to end a day with a taste of wine or limoncello (the island's deservedly famous specialty). Breakfast too was well- designed and well-executed...don't miss their homemade lemon and chocolately breakfast cakes with your cappucino! Very romantic location, great staff, recommend to all adult visitors at least. (Pool shown on website actually appears to belong to next-door property, not sure if Canasta customers can access.) Staff thoughtfully sent info upon booking with travel info from the mainland and insider tips, helpful for planning.

Room Tip: Likely worth a bit more to ensure a Sea view, see note about obscuring trees in review.

Dear guest
thanks for all the nice words for the hotel and for all of us.
I just want to confirm that the beautiful pool which is shown in the web site pictures is on the border with the other hotel next door but it belongs to hotel Canasta.
I hope that you return in the summer to enjoy the sun of my pool.
With kind regards
Pietro D'Emilio

We spent five nights at Hotel Canasta. It's a small place on a quiet street a short walk from the center where all the activity is. We stayed in room 24 which included a private patio with a view of the water and partial view of Fariglione. We had originally planned to explore the Amalfi Coast from Capri, but the place is so beautiful we never left the island until we had to. Pietro and Paola were incredibly helpful throughout our trip. If you need advice just ask. By chance we rode the ferry to Naples with Pietro and he continued to give us advice right until we got off in Naples! We hope to get back to Capri again and will stay at Hotel Canasta again.

Room Tip: If you want a water view try room 24.

We loved staying here. The owners are warm and kind, and very helpful with local knowledge. We had great tips on where to go hiking, and how to get to the hiking locations. The room was spacious, clean with a nice terrace. Very close to the central plaza, and an easy walk from the furnicular.

Loved everything about this hotel! The owners, Pietro and Paola are kind, helpful and always there if you need anything! Our room was lovely and the breakfast wonderful! There is a beautiful pool and in the warmer months you can have your breakfast outside on the terrace. We were there in October and had breafast both indoors and out.
I am a travel consultant and plan trips for people to Italy. I would be very happy to have my clients stay here! Thank you Hotel Canasta for a wonderful stay!

Hotel Canasta was simply incredible. From the moment we arrived to the moment we left we truly felt like we were treated with absolute kindness. The couple who owns the hotel are so welcoming and so relaxing, making us feel like we were on a tropical resort vacation. The suggestions the owner made for lunches and dinner were simply delicious and the walks and trails he recommended were so beautiful and romantic. Our room had everything we possibly needed, including a stunning ocean view! Hotel Canasta and the island of Capri were a beautiful and perfect location for our honeymoon and we can't wait to go back and reccomend it to family and friends! One more thing, Nick, who works the front desk in the evenings, is the kindest and most accommodating man! He always had a smile on his face when we came in and would inquire with genuine curiosity about our evening....hi Nick!!

The Hotel Canasta has a perfect location, just a short 5 minute walk to the center of town but far enough away to provide the peace and quiet one wants when on a vacation. The owner, Pietro, is a wonder man who was always available to make recommendations that were spot on. His follow-up was always prompt. Housekeeping came twice a day and kept the rooms immaculate. We enjoyed the fact the breakfast was set out early each morning, they say it will be setup by 8 AM but was usually ready by 7:45 AM which was nice for an early start, which many guests did, like us, to avoid the crowds in town.

The reason for the 3 star ratings were the beds. My gosh, they were so uncomfortable, two twins pushed together. My back was so sore the first morning that I could barely get out of bed. When one vacation, a comfortable bed is so important! The hotel could also use a little sprucing up, some fresh paint and new linens are in order. Also, a few more lounge chairs around the wonderful pool are needed. One day after lunch all of them were being used so we decided to sit in the breakfast area when we would have preferred resting in the sun.

If they upgrade their mattresses and linens this is absolutely a 5 star review and property. We will be back in Positano next June and may consider a return.

Hotel Canasta is a small family run hotel. It is not a 5 star property with amazing views. It is a reasonably priced, well located hotel run by a nice family. Rooms are not luxurious, however, they are functional & no complaints. The breakfast buffet provides a nice assortment of food - the staff is delightful & the cappuccinos the best I've ever had. It is a good value hotel run by a nice family near the main streets of Capri.
