La Minerva Hotel, Capri
La Minerva mirrors the true soul of Capri more than any other hotel. Everything here exudes a tranquil, cosy and halcyon air. Guests are as warmly welcomed as if they were on a family visit, and that is exactly how they are made to feel. The hotel's 18 spacious rooms are done with great care and love of detail in the Mediterranean cottage style. This is a venue of particular charm and plenty of privacy, even though it lies within easy walking distance from Capri's central square, "La Piazzetta." Anyone who has every stayed at this romantic, family-run gem will surely want to come back.
Hotel Price range
One night for two in a double of the lowest category during the off-season will cost approx.:
- Below € 250
- Below € 400
- Above € 400
It is also the place with the best value-for-money ratio on Capri, as charm and kindness are priceless – and, unlike the luxury features, will not show up on the bill.
The hotel has a long list of returning guests, and is almost always booked out during the holiday season. So it might be a better idea to come in the low-season.

Right where the action is and yet so quiet! This small hotel is well hidden in the historic town centre of Capri, below the picturesque Via Tragara that leads to the island's signature landmark – the Faraglioni rocks.
An inconspicuous white building from the outside, this is a cultivated maritime jewel inside. You feel a diligent female mind at work, remembering even the smallest details, e.g. large candles in the entrance area, fresh flowers, and suitable accessories in the living room (lobby).
A well-groomed little garden with pool (unheated), a sun deck with sea view (this being where the breakfast is served) and a lovely living room.
While the hotel has no in-house restaurant, there are numerous restaurants within walking distance. The breakfast is excellent – with special requests readily satisfied.
18 spacious rooms in the Mediterranean style, furnished in hues of blue and white. Beautiful maiolica floors, tall ceilings and black-and-white photographies on the walls complete the harmonious overall picture. Most rooms have a grand view of the sea.
Simply the ultimate in warmth and care! Service highlights include the special preparation of your very own breakfast, the welcome drink in your room, or the personal pick-up service for your purchases in the boutiques in Capri.
