“Highly recommended!”
Reviewed September 9, 2011

I found Il Portico on this website and booked simply because of the comments people made on the site. I stayed at the hotel for three nights with my family.

The hotel was very clean and had everything we needed. It was close to Capri centre as well as to Marina Grande, which was very handy to visit other places in the island. I was very impressed by how organised Antonio was. We didn’t plan much beforehand, however, Antonio told us where to visit and where to eat etc. We followed all his recommendations and had a fantastic time in Capri. I would recommend this hotel especially it is your fist time visit to Capri. All the comments people made here are true and I was so glad that I chose this hotel. Capri itself is a great place to visit but the stay at this hotel really made our stay very pleasant!

I highly recommend anyone who wants to have great time in Capri.

We spent four nights here while honeymooning in Italy in May. Everything you read on tripadvisor is 100% true - Il Portico is absolutely gorgeous and Antonio is wonderful! We had visited Sicily, Rome, Venice, Sorrento, and Milan and this hotel made Capri our very favorite. Most stay in Capri for the weekend, but we were thrilled to have been there for four nights. We were welcomed by Antonio upon our arrival, and taken to our spotless room overlooking the water. The view could not have been more beautiful! We enjoyed a lovely breakfast prepared and served by the Il Portico staff each morning on the patio. Their cappuccinos were the best we had in Italy. Antonio helped us with travel, transportation, and restaurant selections - and everything was right on. We especially loved Lo Sfizio and Il Solitario. I couldn't recommend this hidden gem anymore. Stay here!!!

We stayed here for 3 nights. All I have to say is : BEAUTIFUL
The view from the hotel was breathtaking, our terrace looking over the ocean was amazing and the rooms were clean and the staff was so welcoming, caring, helpful and nice!!! Perfect place to stay if you are looking for a relaxing time but still close to all the exciting places such as Marina Grande and Capri center.
Antonio was so patient and helpful with his advice for every occasion. He recommended us restaurants, sightseeing spots, gelato places, bars, shopping areas, and all of them were the best - our stay couldn't be any better. Fair room prices for Capri.
I strongly recommend this hotel!!

Il Portico is the perfect place to stay in Capri if you are looking for a relaxing, comfortable stay in Capri. Our room was extremely clean, and had a huge terrace over=looking the garden and a direct view of the amazing bay.

The 8-room B&B is in a great location with easy access to Marina Grande and the Capri town square.

The "inn-keeper/ owner", Antonio and his g/f Alessandra were extremely welcoming, and helpful in terms getting around town and constantly pointing us in the right direction for sights and great food!

I would definitely stay here upon my return to Capri (hopefully soon)! Also, you aren't paying sky-rocket prices here, which is always nice.

Talk about making us feel welcome! Antonio was a charming host, and best of all, he told us the unbelievably delicious local restaurants. The Frommer guidebooks are always helpful, but they are not as updated as Antonio - he was sure we would love one restaurant, and after eating there, we almost wanted to move in to the place!
The view from our room was stunning, the breeze, the weather...yum! Antonio was friendly, always available,and when he wasn't, he gave us his cell phone number for 24 hour availability - all included in the price! He packed his refrigerator with delicious water which was a nice perk - rather than other places that not only charge you for the room, but add on a charge for...water? Thank you Antonio.

From the moment we arrived, we knew that we had made the right choice in staying at Il Portico. Antonio, the owner, greeted us with a warmth and friendliness that only grew throughout our stay. He gave us a tour and showed us to our room, but it was when he gave us the keys to his villa that we really felt like it would be our home away from home for the next week. The room was spotlessly clean and comfortable without being pretentious, but the view from our balcony was beyond anything that we had expected. Often when you see pictures on the internet, you think that it can’t possibly be that nice, but this was even better in person. Waking up to that view every morning was one of the highlights of our trip.

The location of Il Portico is ideal for exploring the island as it is only a 7 minute walk up to the Piazzetta, and about the same down to the Marina Grande. We had picnic lunches at the hotel most days, sampling food from local bakeries and fruit stands, along with a bottle of wine or Peroni. It was such a pleasure to be able to enjoy them on the beautiful terrace, surrounded by flowers and overlooking the water. Having a fridge available to store our food was very convenient, and Antonio even provided bottled water and a corkscrew.

The service was always very good, with fresh towels, daily housekeeping and delicious cappuccinos every morning. But what really makes Il Portico special is Antonio and his girlfriend Alessandra. They could not have been more accommodating or helpful, and they take a genuine interest in their guests, and in meeting their every need. Antonio spent a lot of time with us individually, giving us details on the best way to explore the island. He tailored our itinerary daily depending on how much we wanted to walk and what we wanted to see, and also suggested some amazing restaurants that were very reasonable. It was so nice having an insider guide us to the best of Capri. It was also fun to return “home” and be able to share our stories with Antonio at the end of each day. After a week at Il Portico, we felt less like guests and more like old friends.

Room Tip: The extra cost for the sea view is worth it!

il Portico is affordable, lovely, conveniently located and everything you hear about Antionio is 100% true- he is the best host you'll ever have! He made our few days on Capri easy and carefree by giving us excellent advice that was relevent to our goals for the trip.

Room Tip: Absolutely book a room with a terrace
