Best Find in Capri
"9 of us stayed at this hotel in October for 3 nights and the hotel was everything expected and WAY more! The hotel was extremely clean and the capucinno every morning was soo amazing!! The owner went out of his way to be helpful in suggesting local restuarants, bought our group a bottle of wine one night because the hotel didn't offer wine, made transportation arrangements and just was attentive to our groups every need! If your looking for a comfortable stay in Capri at an affordable price with extremely friendly and attentive staff this is the place for you! This hotel is a true Gem and made our stay in Capri truley memorable!!!"

A Gem of a Honeymoon!
"Don't let the star rating chase you away! We cannot say enough good things about this small, simple hotel! The newly renovated accommodations were very clean, quaint, and charming. On an island so full of glitz and glam it is nice to see that some areas remain unspoiled, and La Tosca is one of them. (Although to me it's the unique combination of simplicity AND extravagance that makes Capri so enticing!)
Ettore, the owner of La Tosca, was accommodating from the very first email, even upgrading our room because he'd had a last-minute cancellation. So, we ended up with a fabulous room with a view of the sea, and a great little terrace from which to enjoy it.
We felt very welcome from the start, and enjoyed the way that Ettore and his staff really connected with their guests. I don't think there was a time when we walked through the lobby when they weren't answering questions, giving recommendations, or just being wonderful hosts. He gave us some great hints on restaurants to visit, and after the first wonderful experience we didn't stray from his advice!
I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Capri. What remarkable value, location, and hospitality. Thank you for a wonderful Capri experience Ettore!"

loved this hotel
"What a treasure this hotel is! We wanted to stay a night on Capri and not break the bank and this was certainly the spot. We had a lovely, clean room at the back. We didn't mind not having an ocean view as we weren't in the room that much of the time. Rooms with a view are a bit more. Breakfast was on the terrace and the ocean view was a great way to start the day. Breakfast was simple, rolls, coffee, tea or hot chocolate which we had. It was a nice treat. The staff at the hotel couldn't have been more helpful. They provided us with a map and outlined a walking tour of the island for us. The restaurant they suggested for dinner was excellent and the next day they were more than helpful with the bus and more places to see. We would certainly recommend this hotel and would stay there again without hesitation."

thanks from canada
"We had an absolutly wonderfull stay at La Tosca in July this summer. The room was very very clean and very orderly and the Mr. Ettore Castelli and his piano playing companion made sure that your stay in Capri was an unforgetable experience.
Location is perfect with a beautiful view of Capri and the Faraglioni rocks from your window or the lovely deck.
Deffinetly will be returning to this hotel, the 1 star rating does not do this hotel justice at all!!!
Many thanks once again to Ettore Castelli and his staff.

Perfect for exploring the island of Capri
"Great value hotel! The hotel is newly renovated, spotlessly clean and the staff were great. Some of the rooms have great views over the monastery and down to the Faraglioni. Our room (47) seemed to be slightly bigger than that next door when I took a sneaky peek over the balcony. The room had its own private balcony with deck chairs, table and parasol. Breakfast was the usual of coffees and bread selection. The staff were more than helpfull in recommending good restaurants near by and luggage transpotation to and from the port. The hotel in a great spot for accessing the town of the capri - 3 minute walk to the main square."

Great spot-beautiful 4* rooms
"This hotel is a few blocks from the piazzetta-in a quiet spot. The rooms are worthy of 4 stars-beautiful, newly renovated. Excellent bathrooms and air conditioning. Nice large terrace with ocean views. A great place-why pay more?"

Best find in Capri
"Spent 4 days here as part of honeymoon and it excelled as the only place in Capri where nobody tried to rip you off. The people on the front desk were very polite and courtious, the room was large and clean and had a wonderful balcony with an amazing view over the island. Only slight criticism would be the slight smell from the drains but I believe this is more an Island issue rather than a hotel one. They even sent an email afterwards to say thank you for staying, nice touch."

"La Tosca in Capri is absolutely wonderful, it was my husbands first time on Capri and not only he was he blown away by the beauty of the island he was also very appreciative of Ettori Castelli's and his staff's hospitality.
We arrived at La Tosca after a wander through the lanes and Mr Castelli offered us a continental breakfast for which we offered to pay while we waited for our room. (We arrived early). La Tosca is fabulously located, wonderfully clean and has a beautiful view.
Thank you to Ettori and the staff for making our stay on Capri so memorable.
P.S. The walk from Capri town over Mount Solaro to Anacapri is very much recommended."

"We loved LaTosca! Our room was large, clean, sunny and had a beautiful view down to the Faraglioni. It is easy to get anywhere from the Hotel--only 5 minutes to the Piazetta, but a world away in terms of peace and quiet!
We had no problem reserving with a credit card-- We faxed the relevant info, and all was well! Ettore was a big help-his english is lovely. He helped us with itineraries and restaurant reservations/recommendations. We might not have taken the chairlift to Monte Solaro if it hadn't been for him, and would have really missed out on the best views of the island!
We'd love to go back!! And I would book here happily!"

"La Tosca is conveniently located... only 5 minutes from the piazzetta. Our room was large, simply furnished and had a great view. And for 125 Euro a night (in Capri town!!!) it was a steal! Ettore, the owner, was incredibly helpful. He gave us directions, suggested restaurants, even called to make reservations for us. The only negative I have to say about the Tosca experience was that you can't use a credit card to make a reservation. You have to mail in a money order deposit. But the minor hassle was worth it!"
