Previously, breakfast was served in a lovely exterior building, virtually al fresco. Now it is served in a poky little room which is not ideal. Some of the staff pleasant, while others unhelpful but not rude (complaints about serious noise from unruly guests made by another customer were as good as ignored, while our request for an early morning taxi booking met a response that the hotel could only ring taxis and request a ten minutes notice reservation- this was a little pathetic). Small details of rooms need some attention/upkeep (broken lock on minibar, sea view balcony french window that wouldn't open, light bulb not working in lamp and not noticed or changed). Like many hotels these days, no iron/ironing board available and no coffee making facilities in room. I still like this hotel, but feel it has gone downhill since my first stay - the staff are clearly multitasking, which saves the owners money, but it just needs a little more attention to detail to improve it. The exterior breakfast room in particular needs to be reopened ASAP. There are numerous steps to the hotel, fine for fit adults, but not good for the elderly, infirm, disabled - this is clearly stated in many places online, but some people miss this and complain a lot. We coped with it fine and are in our 50s.
Price of accomodation at Casa Caprile are, for Capri, excellent and affordable for those on less than stellar incomes. The hotel has an interesting past recent history (early 20th century) which is not marked in any way, which is a shame. Have stayed there before (2010) when under different ownership. Bus stop nearby, Anacapri has improved overall and the island is of course sublime.
