Concierge.com's insider take:
Value for money is not something one associates with Capri hotels—but pretty, spruce La Minerva definitely provides it. A family-run oasis on the panoramic lane that leads down from the swanky shopping street of via Camerelle, it offers stylish decor and gracious hospitality at a reasonable price. Walls and ceilings are whitewashed, and are floors tiled with bright and cheery polychrome majolica from Vietri sul Mare. Guests are quickly drawn to the sea views from the lobby terrace and most guest rooms. In true Caprese style, the 18 rooms are spread over five floors that slope gently toward the water. There's a rainy-day breakfast room, but most of the season guests can enjoy breakfast on their private balconies (some have suntanning beds) or on the hotel's sunny roof terrace. For a few dollars more, book one of the larger deluxe units with large walk-in wardrobes, roomy tiled bathrooms, and whirlpool baths.
Open March through October.
