Search the best hotels in Capri
The name alone conjures up the scent of lemon trees, the flavour of ripe, red tomatoes scattered with basil and the chatter in the piazzetta as the town turns out for an evening stroll or ‘passeggiata’. The best places to stay in Capri are usually in the luxury bracket, but we have managed to find a few hidden gems that won't cost you an arm and a leg.
Whilst the size of this rocky island which rises from the blue waters of the Mediterranean is small, Capri’s fame is large; its charms captured by writers, poets and artists from Turgenev to Graham Greene, who all found its wild beauty so inspiring. Its reputation for glamour developed over the last century as the rich, the aristocracy and good-looking film stars came calling in their yachts, frequenting the boutiques, wearing Capri pants or sipping limoncellos in the Italian sunshine.
What not to Miss
- Despite its popularity, lemon trees still scent the island; the town’s cobbled streets are still too narrow for cars and plump, homemade Ravioli Caprese is still a dish worth crossing the water for.
- Capri Town with its funicular, fantastic restaurants and bars and busy events calendar between April and the end of summer is where many people stay. However Anacapri is another option, and definitely worth visiting - even if you don’t stay there.
- This is a great place for hikers and those who love a mountain view. It’s has a beautiful church, an impressive chairlift and several graceful villas.
- If you only see one villa on Capri - and that would be a shame - the one to see is the Villa Jovis, the splendid residence the Roman Emperor Tiberius built for himself.
- The Blue Grotto is a popular attraction - a beautiful cave at the water’s edge with a tiny opening onto the ocean which opens and closes with the tide. Only a small rowboat can get through, but when you turn your craft around and look through the tunnel its a beautiful sight. Any boat journey out to sea off Capri is worth it, and, for some people the cruise to the Faraglioni Rocks is more of a highlight than the Blue Grotto. Capri is a great place to rent your own boat. Or your own scooter for that matter! And, of course you can charter a yacht if you need to.
- Just five kilometres from Naples across the beautiful Bay of Naples on the mainland, from there it's a short journey to Pompeii, or on to the Amalfi Coast.
- Location is important here, for moving around the island is often on foot, so choose carefully if you want to be in the heart of the town, in the more peaceful outskirts, down by the harbour, in the more rural Anacapri or hanging on the edge of the cliffs.
Just don't forget that this island is heaving during the peak summer months, so get organised and book well ahead if you want to guarantee a room in one of the best places to stay in Capri.
The Best Places to Stay on Capri
- If you're looking for a hotel to match the glitz then check into the Capri Palace Hotel and Spa. Here you'll find the only Michelin starred food on the island and original artwork on the walls. Book a suite and get your own private pool.
- You might guess from the name, Caesar Augustus, that this is a five-star establishment? The 55 rooms ooze old world glamour and there’s a superb restaurant with stunning views of Mt. Vesuvius.
- Capri Town’s Grand Hotel Quisiana is an old fashioned charmer with 140 large rooms - many with private balconies -, a beautiful garden and pool and a choice of four restaurants.
Location Location Location
- For townies we'd suggest the Tiberio Palace in the heart of Capri Town. The decor is contemporary and stylish, but the pièce de résistance is the Spa (set on two floors with indoor and outdoor pools).
- Just off the Piazzetta di Capri, the Hotel La Vega is an excellent pensione boasting spacious rooms with incredible views from their balconies. A lovely pool area ensures you don't have to traipse down the hill to find a beach.
- Down by the harbour book a room at JK Place if your pockets are deep enough. This divine five star establishment is just steps from the sea and oozes style and opulence.
- For cliff top dramatics Punta Tragara is the place. The situation is stunning with breathtaking views. Inside the vibe is calm and luxurious and superb food is served on candlelit verandas.
- The Hotel Luna is set on a beautiful spot, with stunning views of the sea and the Faragloni rocks. The hotel has 50 rooms and suites, onsite spa facilities and candle lit dining in the romantic terrace restaurant.
- The Villa Brunella has its 20 rooms, all with their own balconies, arranged over a series of terraces running down the hill towards the sea to optimise the views. At the bottom is the glorious pool and sun terrace.
- The Hotel La Minerva is a 16 room hotel over five terraces levels, set in a garden of almond, mimosa and citrus trees. The rooms are light and sunny and the hotel quite glamorous.
Best Guesthouses and B&Bs
- Caprisuite, in the old town of Anacapri has just two boutique rooms, with minimalist style and fading frescoes. Perfect for couples or a group of four.
- Also in peaceful Anacapri, Da Gelsomina is known for its fantastic restaurant - the cuisine is traditional and the ingredients locally sourced. They also have 12 simple bedrooms with a calm colour palette and private balconies.
- Tranquil and luxurious, but still family friendly, the Villa Marina has 21 lavishly decorated rooms and suites with fantastic views over the Bay of Naples, a deluxe spa and a restaurant serving excellent Mediterranean cuisine.
- The Tiberio Palace, in the heart of Capri Town, has 46 stylish rooms and suites in a configuration to suit any party. The decor is contemporary and stylish, but the pièce de résistance is the spa (set on two floors with indoor and outdoor pools). Great for foodies too.
- The Villa Sarah is a modest, yet charming, hotel in a peaceful hilltop position surrounded by fruit trees and grape vines. Some of the 19 rooms have private balconies. There’s also a large garden and a lovely pool. Rooms start from around £110 per night.
For Great Value
- The Hotel La Canasta is an immaculately kept, 16 room B&B with white walls, Capri-style tiled floors and tasteful furnishings and fabrics. Even the pool is stylish and the views are fantastic. Rooms start from just over £100 per night.

For an Apartment or Villa
If you’d prefer to stay in an apartment or private villa we recommend you visit our online partner Booking.com.
- The only way to get to the island of Capri is by boat. You can catch the ferry from Naples and Sorrento, and Positano during the summer season. Naples Airport is the closest airport, and you can catch the regular Alibus from there to the Piazza Municipio, which is right by the pier where both the fast and slow ferries leave from.
- If you want to hire a car - which you won’t be able to use on Capri itself, but we highly recommend if you want to see more of the Amalfi Coast and Naples - we recommend you visit our online partner Holiday Autos.
- The traditional tourist season on Capri runs from the Easter holidays until the first weekend of November. Summer is the busiest season, but if you’re not restricted on when you travel it’s worth considering visiting between April and the middle of June, or between September and mid-October. Both of these periods are quieter and the weather is beautiful - and not too hot!
