Hotel Il Girasole - Anacapri

3 star Hotel Anacapri

Via Linciano 47 - Anacapri

Price starting from 63.00
The hotel "Il Girasole" run by Mr. and Mrs. Orlando is located near the Castle of Materita -- primary residence of Axel Munthe, the Swedish writer and doctor, where between 1927 and 1929 he wrote "The Story of San Michele", the novel read throughout the world -- between the Belvedere Migliera to the feet of Monte Solaro and is only 300 meters from the bus station which connects the most important points of the island.

Il Girasole is an oasis for all dreamers who wish to pass their vacation in one of the most enchanting angles of the island. From the swimming pool to the orange and lemon trees where one's gaze is lost in the fiery sunset, one's thoughts go back in time tasting the local wine produced by the proprietors in their adjacent vineyard.

This place was great. it is located in the anacapri countryside on a hillside. You have to walk 10 minutes to the bus and 15-20 minutes to a restaurant in Anacapri but the scenery is breathtaking. Quiet and not crowded like the area nearer to the port in Capri town. You wake up in the morning and outside your door is a view of Ischia shining in the Bay of Naples. Only 88 euros a night for 8 nights in may. The room itself was standard sized and the bathroom wasn't bad. Everything is spotless. Have them turn on the air for you and don't open the windows at night (no extra charge for A/C). There were plenty of mosquitoes if you opened the window at night. Great breakfast with breads, cakes, fruit, yoghurt, eggs one day, meat and cheese, juice and coffee. great restaruants about 15 minutes away in Piazza Boffe near Santa Sofia.

very annoying that a shot of espresso or a cappuccino for breakfast is considered an extra... Hotel is far from the center of the village than advertised room with very poor light and with lots of humidity.

The staff were all very accomodating, polite and happy to help. They knew exactly where everything on the Island is located. The staff even kept taps on whether the Blue Grotto was open or not. The hotel is run by a family and they soon felt like my own. The location is in an out of the way setting, but the bus stop is only a 5 minute walk. The island can be busy so the hotel location is perfect!!! Ciao

La gente del hotel fue muy cordial y servicial. La habitación era muy pequeña. La pileta, solarium y los demás espacios son muy lindos. El inconveniente es que para llegar al hotel solo se puede caminado unos 300 m porque es una calle muy angosta.

Wir waren im Oktober zwei Nächte im Girasole. Der Anreiseweg ist etwas lang: Von der Marina Grande mit dem Bus nach Anacapri, dort an der letzten Station aussteigen. Die Treppen zum Fußweg hochgehen, dann mit den Koffern ca 500 m die Via Linciano entlangziehen... Zimmer und Bad etwas klein aber sauber. Frühstück ist oK. Abgeschiedene Anlage. Viel zu Fuß gehen erforderlich! Swimmingpool nicht beheizt. Fürs Busfahren evtl Tageskarten besorgen, gibts nur an der Endhalte in Capri. Die Busse fahren pünktlich und ziemlich häufig. Nächstes Mal vielleicht ein Hotel direkt in Anacapri.

We had a wonderful stay - what a beautiful view! I only wish we had stayed more than one night. Only one suggestion- it would be helpful to add a more detailed map on the web site as it is not obvoious how to find it. Also a note such as "take the Anacapri bus from the harbor to the last stop, which is the bus station, then go up the steps and you will see the sign to the hotel".
