“Paradise amongst the pines!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 12, 2014 via mobile

This is an initial installment on B&B Monte Solaro. Wow what a beautiful location at the top of Anacapri! Fantastic and gracious hospitality with Costanzo and family! Quiet, peaceful, comfortable (could have slept for days in the beds and loved the double shower), inviting. 1.80 Euro to take the bus anywhere on the island including Grotto Azurra (the Blue Grotto) which unbeknownst to is is actually on the Anacapri side of the island! Call Costanzo to book rather than going through an agency!

The view is amazing and the service is excellent (loved Costanzo who was helpful, warm and welcoming-felt like we had always been friends!). The rooms were comfortable and clean. Breakfast is simple "Continental" but fine. We walked to the chair lift and it's definitely worth the ride to the top. Yes, there are a lot of stairs leading up to the B&B, but if you have physical limitations, arrangements can be made for a ride up. We were definitely glad we chose Anacapri over Capri because strolls in the evening gave us a view of locals without a lot of tourists.

Booked here from reviews on this site. We were not disappointed. When we arrived at the bus terminal we called the hotel he explained he was checking people out and would be down in 15 minutes to collect us, which he did. When you first drive up the hill to the B&B you become aware of the steepness of the road (more about that later)It takes only a minute or so to drive up there. When you go through the gates you are on the covered breakfast area with the rooms to your right. The views from this terrace over towards Ischia are to die for, gets even better as the sun goes down, if you are lucky enough to be there when there is a full moon shining on the sea even better. Each room faces out over the sea and has its own table/chairs and is divided from its neighbour by trellis and jasmine. There are only a few rooms, so you will never need to worry about overcrowding. At times you feel like you are the only one there. The rooms are spacious and clean. The bathroom is compact with a large shower enclosure. The breakfast is continental, as you would expect, but tasty and plentiful. The family that own it are friendly and helpful. One of the brothers would always stop and have a chat, we even discussed the upcoming World Cup Italy/England match (enough said on that) the sun bathing terrace also provides fantastic views. The pool is cold, but very refreshing when you want to cool off. We were told that if we wanted a lift up and down the hill they would do this up till midnight, just to call them. However we decided to give it a go walking. We did it in approx 7mins at a fast pace (from the bus terminal) even at a slower pace it only took about 10-12 mins. There are steps with handrails which makes things easier. So not as daunting a climb as we first thought. I have gone on at length, but I cannot praise this little B & B enough, there is nothing negative I can say about it. A fantastic little place, which I am glad we found. I have stayed in another hotel in Anacapri which was also very good, but when I am next here this will be the first place I look to stay.

Definitely book this place! The views are wonderful. The rooms are well decorated, the bed is comfortable (and is a true queen instead of the Euro queen which is really just two twin beds with a gap in the middle), and the bathroom is spacious compared to most bathrooms in Europe. The brothers running the place are so friendly and helpful. I can't say enough good things about this place.

It may be a bit of a hike above Anacapri, but Monte Solaro B&B was worth every step. We were met by the owner just above the Anacapri bus station, where he picked us up to head to the property. We were floored by the view - just incredible. Not too many rooms, and each had their own little deck space facing out onto the sea. It was a great place to watch the sunset over Ischia and enjoy some wine. :) We didn't use the pool (it was a bit chilly) but there was a great deck for tanning, and it was a short walk to the Monte Solaro chairlift. We'd attach pictures, but the ones the B&B have posted look the same as ours!

Months in advance I booked a room at this property only to be contacted with a story that my credit card details were still needed or there was a problem..There was a problem indeed. It was not my card which was fine but they had overbooked and were trying to find a way out of the problem they had caused. Eventually after a number of emails, I was so unhappy with them that I cancelled the booking as they had destroyed any pleasure I might have had in this part of the trip. mistakes can happen of course but always best to be honest up front at first. The review is thus only about the booking experience.

We were welcomed by Constanzo, the very charming owner, who couldn't have been more helpful. He picked us up in Ana Capri and took us to the B&B situated on the side of Monte Solaro with views over Ischia.
Basic but comfortable. Particularly enjoyed the double shower!
Would certainly go back to enjoy the pool and pizza oven later in the season.
See you soon Constanzo! X
