Whilst staying in Sorrento we decided to take a trip to Capri and followed the advice of a friend and booked a hotel for the night rather than visiting as day trippers, definitely a great idea, Capri is a completely different, relaxed place once the last ferry leaves. It's fantastic to sit in the main square people watching. The hotel wasn't cheap, but this is Capri. It's a very traditional if a little dated hotel and needed some care and attention. Our room was quirky but spacious enough. Breakfast was plentiful and nice. When you land in Capri, take the funicular up to the town, it's a very long and sweaty slog up the hill with your cases.

My (now) fiances favourite place to visit is Capri, so i knew right away its where I wanted to propose. We booked for this past September, and the hotel helped arrange a lot of the surprises and logistics, this was our second time staying at La Palma, and it delivered just like the previous time. Nice breakfast buffet, very good front desk staff, and this is hands down the best location in Capri, right in the centre of the town, next to the shops and restaurants and other nice hotels, very easy to catch a cab too. Perfect Capri and she said yes.

This was a great hotel. I really enjoyed it. The location is amazing. There is so much around it. Our room was clean and had a great balcony. The staff were friendly and accommodating. I definitely recommend this hotel.

Location of the hotel is really great, surrounded by nice little shops and boutiques. Ambience inside the hotel including the room is very pleasant, the hotel ia maintained really well and clean..the room at which we stay is spacious.. The thing we were really impressed and made our stay very enjoyable is great service and advice by the GM of the hotel Thanks to the GM & Management team of the hotel which made our holiday in Capri so wonderful and enjoyable.

Hotel La Palma's concierge led by Antonio, is beyond compare. Every need is addressed promptly. Additionally, my money belt containing cash was placed in the bedside table drawer after I left it in my hotel room. The bed is very comfortable and the rooms and bathrooms spacious and tastefully decorated.

The hotel is one of the eldest on the island, with perfect location just round the corner from the funicular. Slightly disappointed we weren't given a room with a balcony, even though the hotel wasn't full. Normally I would have asked to change, but as we were only staying one night it didn't seem worth the hustle. Aside from that it was perfectly comfortable and clean. Great breakfast. Great service - my boyfriend even got his trousers taken up within hours for a small charge!

Here for a conference although not the best set up for that. The hotel conference rate was good for Capri so I have no complaints about the price. The carpet on the stairs is worn and discolored and the breakfast was cold meats, pastries and one cereal. They will make you cappuccino or you can get coffee out of a machine and use the cold milk in it. Coffee is not hot in Italy compared to the USA so adding cold milk makes it lukewarm. They helped us make train reservations and were nice at the front desk. The room was large with a balcony, queen bed, and free WiFi. There was a safe in the room but is was too small to put an iPad in so I ended up having to carry it everywhere. The safe also is not a combo but has just a key. It was not bad but I might check out something else if I went back. However I don’t think there is really much reason to go back. Too many tours come over all day long and if you don’t want to shop at all the high end stores once you have seen the views there is not much else to do. Restaurants were mixture of great and ok. They charge you a cover charge and 15% fee at lots of the places so it really adds up.

From the moment we arrived (greeted with luggage service at ferry) to our departure (again luggage service to ferry) ...first class service was consistent! It’s a charming older property which added to the Capri ambience, and in great condition - room was clean, spacious (we had basic room), charming Capri tile, painted murals, balcony. Reception areas gorgeous! Location couldn’t be better - in the perfect middle of everything and high end shopping. Breakfast buffet had a wide selection of high quality authentic yummies - combined with outside terrace seating with great people watching view. We had an amazing dinner on their terrace as well - magical vibe. Really could not think of one thing they needed to change - they made our Capri experience totally complete! We can’t wait to return to Capri AND La Palma! Don’t know what it’s like during high season but going mid-Sept was awesome - weather beautiful and not crowded (and lots of end of season sales!!). Bonus... Next door is a great gelato, desert place (also casual dining which was perfect for mid day snack) which we had desert every night there. ...And visit Anacapri while you’re there! It’s totally different - a lot of sights, shopping and great dining! Very quaint and charming. Back in the day we would’ve hit the night life in Anacapri 🙃

First of all, the pictures online do not do this hotel justice! It is GORGEOUS. Secondly, we received top notch service from Antonio in Concierge, he helped us book dinners, day trips, etc, and was very flexible and kind ! The most pleasant surprise of all was the location, it is in the BEST part of capri, walking distance from everything. Look no further, this is the best hotel, and I will see you next summer Antonio! Also note: the complimentary breakfast is delicious and very complete.

Quite nice hotel, well located, very friendly staff. Particularly we would like to thank Antonio and Domenico for their great help with our travel plans. When there was problem with the room for the first night, they scrambled to find a better one for us.
