We stayed at La Minerva for 3 nights and wish we could have stayed longer. We are "design types" and the style of the hotel really suited our taste - every single detail was perfectly considered from the hand painted tiles floors, to the beautifully furnished rooms and lobby, the understated and elegant breakfast terrace and the pool surrounded by...

We stayed at La Minerva for two nights in September and we wish we could stay at a hotel like this wherever we go! It is a small hotel in a good position close to the action but quiet and exclusive. It is owned and managed by 3 brothers who were friendly and professional. The hotel is beautifully decorated and...

We stayed at La Minerva for 4 nights for the 2nd part of our honeymoon in September.

The best hotel experience we've ever had. The service was incredible- any thing we asked for- from a cup of coffee, to a late night cocktail or snack, to restaurant recommendations and reservations- Luigi, Marco and Antonino made it happen immediately. They were beyond gracious and we looked forward to their smiling faces that greeted us every time we went...

Stayed 3 nights to kick off our honeymoon. This place rules. Absolutely beautiful hotel. Super charming lobby bar, great breakfast up on the roof, nice pool area, and the friendliest staff imaginable. Location is perfect - a short walk back to Capri center or all the way out to the end of the path to get to fontelina beach club,...

That is how you feel staying at La Minerva. This is run by a wonderful family. Three brothers who are terrific! We feel so at home. This is a beautiful place with impeccable service! Hate to give away this special place but I wouldn't stay anywhere else on Capri! Room 41 and 42 are our favorite rooms.

The views, the staff, the pool, the room. This hotel is a hidden gem, far from the confusion of the town's centre. There are a few rooms, which makes it also very calm. Everything is unique, amazing and very romantic. I wish I stayed longer.

Over the years we have stayed in some lovely hotels in some lovely locations and let me tell you that Capri and La Minerva are right up there as one of the best in the world.
