My boyfriend and I just had 2 wonderful nights at this hotel. Only wonderful things to say!! The suite we had was unbelievably gorgeous and absolutely huge!! The view from our bedroom windows were breathtaking and the whole place is gorgeous with beautiful fresh wild flowers and greenery all over the wooden trellises. It's a very special place, family run, and spectacular views. Would stay there again in a heartbeat. The area itself is also fabulous. Anacapri is a very special part of the island! It's not as built up and touristy (and expensive!!) as the rest of Capri and Marina Piccola. It's got great restaurants, good shopping, and you can easily go up the chairlift to the top if mount Solaro for the 360 island views. We rented a scooter for the few days to get around and explore a bit; great way to see the island. A must do is to head down to have sunset drinks at the lighthouse - best spot for sundowners :)

Hotel Girasole is such a friendly and cozy hotel. We stayed here for a few days during our honeymoon trip to Italy. The hotel is situated at the top of a hill and has a panaromic view of the ocean and offers a breathtaking view of the sun setting. We highly recommend staying here!

Very nice small hotel situated very close to the centre of Anacapri. We did have an amazing view from our room through sort of walking balcony To Ischia. It would be better to have it straight from room, but anyway it was fine. We think it is very nice to stay there sometimes in the evening and enjoy sunset. Hotel have a nice and not very small (though not very warm in the middle of May either) swimming pool. Hotel also offer free transfer from the port which is very nice. Our rooms and shower room was on small side (I think it is only one minus which i can say about this place). Staff in the hotel is very friendly, as well as local. I think we could happily stay in this hotel again if we come to Capri again.

Spent two nights here we had only booked for one however decided we wanted to stay another day! Our original room had a sea view which was a splendid view. Unfortunately that room wasn't available for our second spontaneous night but the standard room we had was absolutely fine. The place was spotlessly clean. The pool great and the views stunning! The lady working in the pool side snack bar was so kind and really looked after us. The hotel is is a great location in Anacapri. It's also a very reasonably priced hotel if you're on a budget you couldn't pick anything better.

We stayed in this hotel in July and have been very disapointed. To be fair, the view of the hotel is trully amazing and beautiful. But the hotel needs serious renovation for the classic rooms, it seems nothing has been done since the opening probably 30 years ago. Moreover, when we arrived the room was not cleaned. Dirty floor, soap from the previous client in the shower, teathbrush glass not cleaned after being used previously... After complaining about the situation, we have been offered another room, but there were musty smell... So we decided to stay in our previous room and the manager sent a cleaning woman to fix the room. Other major problem : walls are so slim taht you hear EVERYTHING form other room, you can basiclly follow the conversation of your neighboor without anyproblem. We haven't sleep for all night because our neighboor watched tv until 4AM. Regarding breakfast, poor quality. Hotel to avoid if you would like to ... sleep...

There are better accommodations in my opinion. First of all you can't find it easily, the people who work there are totally on there limits if there are more than two persons at the reception and if you need help (while there are more people) no chance for a fast or clear advise. If you are lucky you get a good room, we weren't. We leave today for an other hotel. Sad story!

Have recently returned from absolutely perfect holiday in Anacapri. This hotel could not have been any better in terms of location, staff and facilities. Traditional and family run, nothing was too much trouble. Breakfast was simple but ample and set you up for a morning hiking across the Island. The hotel is close to the bus stop and easy access to all the sites on Capri and Anacapri. We walked a lot and found getting the bus back up easier. We got picked up from the port on arrival and did wonder where we were heading down some very narrow streets, but the area and island overall is very welcoming and safe. We were close enough to the centre of Anacapri to wander for dinner and back in the evening. The pool and sunbathing terrace was ideal for relaxing in the late afternoon sun after a day of sightseeing. Never too busy and also some lovely traditional pasta served. With perfect views of the sea, lemon and olive groves this hotel makes it very easy to switch off and relax. Perfect location, perfect surroundings. Wish I was back.

Everyone at the hotel was friendly and ready to be of service. We had a beautiful room, the maids were perfect, the food is delicious, the pool is a dream, the service is impeccable, the transfers are delightful.

We stayed two nights at this hotel. It's away from the center and that's how we liked it. We loved peace and quiet and nature around us. They have a lovely swimming pool. The breakfast was correct and service was good. They have a shuttle that picked us up from the port of Capri on our arrival. We enjoyed our stay and we highly recommend this hotel.

We love this place, there is free shuttle bus from the port. Breakfast is great, you can choose whether you want. There are also very nice people working at this hotel- very helpful, gave us map and give us recommendation what to see. 10 min slow walk to Anacapri city centre- close to chairlift.
