La Guardia
Ranked #16 of 42 Anacapri B&B and Inns
Reviewed February 3, 2011

I cannot understand the good reviews about this B&B-I can only imagine that they have been written by the owners! The view from the terrace is good, but that is the only plus. You have to get two buses to get to civilisation-at night time the buses are very infrequent. It is then a 10minute walk uphill in the dark from the bus stop to the B&B. The rooms are dark and decor is dated and tacky. We were the only guests there in peak season-we were not surprised! Certainly didn't get the warm welcome others describe. We've travelled a lot and I'd say this is one of the poorest B&B's we've stayed at anywhere in the world!

As our host Umberto put it.... Bellissimo!!!

Look no further! I can't think of a better villa, location, value and hosts.

Location: Perched on a cliff, the villa has a view to die for. Right out of the post cards. As we reached Capri, we were disappointed. Capri is really commercial. But Ana Capri is by far the best place to stay on the island. It's a different world. La Guardia is situated probably 3 kms from the centre of Ana Capri. Which makes it private and secluded. The bus stop is very close by. The beach is a small hike down.

Hosts: Umberto and Ciro are probably the best hosts you will ever come across. They are genuinely good people. They made sure that all our needs were met.

I was traveling with my mom. We were really tried after the long journey from Venice. We decided to stay back at the Villa as opposed to going out for dinner. Umberto and Ciro were hosting few friends over for a barbecue. They had us join them and introduced us to their friends. Served us some delicious food and desserts. Absolutely amazing!

As Umberto realized that we were heading to Switzerland next, he introduced us to Benjamin (one of the guests staying at the villa) who was from Luzern. Benjamin gave us some great tips.

Umberto will go any lengths to make your holiday the best ever. His suggestions, his kindness and his dedication make all the difference.

Verdict: Don't miss this out on staying here! If you have been to Ana Capri and have not stayed here. Then go back! :)

Thanks Umberto and Ciro! We will come back!

Cheers
Mama & Vishnu :)

Pros:
The incredible hospitality.
The beautiful, clean room.
Fantastic advice on where to go and what to do (most of which I heeded).
Present when I wanted company or conversation, miraculously quiet and solo when I craved that.
Knew I was traveling alone and gave me my first home-cooked Italian meal.
Knew I would be leaving too early for breakfast and packed me a to-go bag.
Stunning, amazing views.
Insanely good value.
Close to bus (which you should definitely take).

Cons:
Leaving.

B&B La Guardia is really a fun trip. We were looking to stay two or three nights in Capri or Anacapri, but not pay the high rates the island usually dictates. Umberto's B&B was perfect. We found it from using Trip Advisor, emailed him directly, and he wrote back within the day. We had never been to Capri, but he emailed us and told us exactly how to take the ferry from Sorrento to Capri, then a bus to stop in Anacapri (where his B&B is located) and there he picked us up. Luggage and all. We preferred Anacapri because it was a little less touristy and way up the mountain so you got away from the ferryloads of people who come to Capri on day trips. His rates vary in time of season, and the American dollar was really good when we were there, but we stayed there for between $150-$160 a night. Well worth it. Very basic breakfast, but we were really only wanting coffee. He gave us great recommendations for dinner and helped us navigate what can be a confusing island with maps and landmarks. It was a clean, big room with a big bathroom for a B&B. The view and terrace is what sells it though. If you want reasonable, clean, fun and relaxing, I recommend B&B La Guardia.

Impossible to describe how good we felt at La Guardia! Did you notice? So many positive reviews... always true, trust us. So we won't describe here again the rare beauty of the place, the incredible smell of the flowers after sunset, the fresh and fruity taste of the local wine, the lovely, lovely smile of Mr. Umberto... We are definitely in love with you, caro, caro Umberto!
