          Getting there.

          The island of Capri is connected to Naples and Sorrento by hydrofoil or by ferry, and in the summer months you can also get there from Ischia and Positano.

          The nearest airport is Naples, Italy (NAP-Naples Intl.)

          From the port, it takes just a few minutes to get to Piazza Umberto I by taxi or cable railway, and the hotel is only a 3 minute walk from there.

          On the motorway, follow the signs indicating "Porto" and "Zona Portuale". In about a 20-minute drive you will reach Beverello Harbor. Please note that you cannot bring your car to Capri from March to October, and from 20th December to 7th January.

          Getting around.

          Public transport is available not far from the hotel. Besides, airport shuttle service is rendered.

          No parking is available.

            The location is great. The hotel is nicely designed, especially the outdoor seating & lobby. The live piano performance in the bar at nights was lovely. Our room was a little small but comfortable. We liked the paintings on the walls. The view from the balcony was great. The bathroom was very clean & large enough. The price was reasonable. Totally, we enjoyed our stay & would definitely come back in the future.

            The staff were not very friendly. They seemed indifferent. Once I call them & I was holding the line for 2-3 min & eventually nobody answered. It happened 2-3 hours after our arrival that the housekeeper staff entered the room without knocking. 2 twin bed were used as a double bed. The bed sheets were clean but the pillow coverings were a little worn out. There was not an iron in the hotel which seems to be unacceptable for a 4 star hotel. The buffet breakfast was acceptable but some items (like cold boiled eggs) could be improved.

            This is our favorite hotel in Capri. Elegance and style, clean and friendly service. I would recommend it to young and older couple. I don't think that is is a children oriented hotel.

            Good location. After arriving in Capri, the hotel is very close to the main square and you can reach it in a 5 minute walk.

            Breakfast could be better.

            Buffet breakfast (not bad for Italy). Professional staff. The hotel has an excellent location right in the centre of Capri, the rooms are clean, big and nicely decorated.

            The hotel is noisy: 1. Slamming doors early in the morning (a lot of conferences etc are taking place in the hotel with most of the participants staying overnight, getting up early), The hotel should do something about this. 2. Very loud airconditioning (I had to turn it of). 3. Ventilation system in the courtyard also makes lots of noise. 4. Churchbells ringing day&night. If you appreciate quietness and tranquiility and like to rest a lot, I would not recommend this hotel.

            Centrally located close to Piazza area in Capri

            Facilities outdated quite a bit. Hotel has a policy of marking-up and charging for services that are supplied for free by other hotels in this category (20 EUR for baggage collection, 25% mark up on ferry tickets, etc. etc.).

            Nice location, friendly staff, big luminous and very nice rooms (frescoed walls and traditional tiled floors). You can ask for beach towels at the reception if you did not bring one (most beach clubs also offer this service). They will also book your return ferry/hydrofoil (for a small fee). During our sightseeing we saw some alternatives and we really recommend this hotel especially if you can book the room for about €200 or less! We also decided to stay and extra night and the staff managed to keep us in the same room/same rate!

            Our neighbors were a little noisy! Maybe try to avoid rooms at the end of the corridor!

            Centrally placed, La Palma is certainly in the middle of Capri. Both the rooms and reception / dining areas are stylish and beautiful and the staff are, on the whole, helpful if not exactly welcoming – maybe professional is a good description? But it works. The chap met us off the hovercraft and our bags were professionally handled. The same was true coming back

            Anyone booking here should be aware that there is no pool or anywhere beautiful to sit outside except the dining areas. This is a shame as La Palma has a roof that is not being utilised and with a little imagination could be turned into something beautiful with perhaps a plunge pool if the building wont take a swimming pool. I was aware if this when we booked so it was not a huge issue for me. However, the air con is very feeble and this was a real problem. When I asked reception if I could have a fan, the person said that there were none but told me where I could buy one! This would be a hotel to avoid during the heat of the summer when the pretty rooms would be unbearable. In addition and as it is centrally placed, you really need to keep the balcony doors shut overnight because there is an amount of noise which is unavoidable and presumable why such good double glazing has been installed. There is no hospitality tray and I would certainly have expected one in a hotel like this. I know Italians are not tea drinkers like us Brits but this is certainly an addition that the hotel could make easily. The breakfast completely lacked imagination and why in a land that grows such wonderful fruit and veg is the fruit out of cans? There was a fruit bowl but frankly the fruit looked like it had been there for ages and everyone avoided it! As a consequence, we did not bother to eat here at all in the evenings so I can’t comment on the food other than the boring breakfast On writing this, I feel sad for this hotel and despite being pretty and stylish I won’t be staying here again. Lots of hotels on Capri are making huge efforts to be competitive. This hotel was only about half full (if that) when we stayed here and I can see exactly why
