Capri , Nice but not cheep.
Posted Jun 1, 2013
First class hotel, staff very friendly & helpful. Clean, nice pool , great sea views , good food.
A good 15 min walk from town square .(need sensible shoes)
Only downer was no kettle in room, so you cant make tea or coffee,(bring a travel one) coffee & tea about £10.00 for two. Its nice to have a tea in bed, or on balcony first thing.
Empty mini-bar & put in your booze milk & bottled water from shop. Though you do get a small complementary bottle of water when they turn your bed down at night. There is a good walk at the base of the hotel .It goes right round the end of the island, great photo op,s, but a lot of steps up & down.
Two restaurants I would recommend. Aurora in via croce, very good. Restorante il Geeranio on via Matteotti, also very good.
Hotel restaurant is very good but not the best value, for your fresh fish(catch of the day) its 100 euros a kilo ! Extensive win list & great service. Would stay again (room 90)
Budget around 150.00 euros a day for ice cream & an evening meal. Day trips, do yourself, or ask someone who has been. Local buses are fun & very cheep 1.8 euros each way. Use the Funicular (mountain tram) to get from town to the harbor 3.5 euros. Tickets to the mainland are about 20 euros on hydrofoil. Taxis are expensive so use local transport. Get boat to Sorrento, 16 euros, then the train to Pompeii 7 euros each, watch out for gypsy pick pockets, use a tour guild as this place is vast, & you wont know what your looking at or where to begin looking.
