The hotel is very nicely situated. Quiet, peaceful and very nice views from the upper floors. The serive was truly outstanding as the brothers make sure your visit is perfect and offer great advice to see the island. Bravo!

My boyfriend and I stayed at La Minerva in June and came back engaged but this isn't the only reason we hold La Minerva close to our hearts! We had planned a summer holiday on the Amalfi Coast, staying 4 nights in Positano and 3 nights in Capri. My fiancee told me that he would organise the accommodation on Capri...

We spent three relaxing nights following a strenuous 5 day hike along the Amalfi Coast. The incredible staff were authentic and gracious which makes all the difference. The rooms were lovely and the food delicious. Good tips for things to see, great walks and good restaurants. Pool too chilly to use. Little gym available across the way which was greatly...

I first stayed at La Minerva twelve years ago and was then very impressed by the sheer beauty and quality of the hotel. Returning in 2016, it is even better and richly deserves its status as the Number one hotel in Capri. The staff are all extremely helpful and good at what they do and the room we stayed in...

"Comfortable" doesn't seem much of a description for this hotel but it is a true term for how La Minerva feels. It is luxurious without being ostentatious and smart without being pretentious. I think it is the most comfortable hotel I have ever known. The hotel does not offer a vast array of "extras" (although it isn't short in what...

This hotel is simply lovely. Owned by 3 brothers, the service is impeccable and they are more than willing to do anything they can to help you. No request is too small. Great breakfast everyday, wonderful staff, serene and blissful views and decor. Expect Italy style rooms (aka not super big) but with large beds and balconies over looking the...

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...
