“Affordable” isn’t a word often associated with a jetsetter’s paradise like Capri. But the island is home to a few hotel properties that won’t cause you to blow through your travel budget (though their ocean views will take your breath away).
The 11-room budget Hotel La Tosca is a petite, single-story bed-and-breakfast on a quiet side street, but with excellent views and within walking distance to major Capri attractions. Interiors are hyper-clean, simple, and lovely: lots of white with bursts of color, tile floors, and plenty of natural light. Guest rooms are sparse but also airy, with private, up-to-date bathrooms. Overall, it's perfectly suited to couples or families looking to experience Capri on a budget.
Colorful flowers climbing over stone walls mark the entrance to the Capri Wine Hotel, a former winery with inviting outdoor spaces, Bay of Naples views, and rustic appeal. The pleasant, mid-range property has a wine bar with a wide variety of bottles and free breakfast. Ten clean, modern rooms have colorful decor, flat-screen TVs, minibars, and bathrooms with rain showerheads; all rooms but one have sea views. The hotel is a 10-minute walk from the Piazzetta, but guests find the curvy, narrow roads challenging after dark. Note that the hotel is open only from April through November.
A short walk from the center of Capri, Hotel Canasta is an elegant family-run villa hotel with a pretty garden, pool, and sea views. Fresh and airy rooms have furnished terraces and free Wi-Fi. A free breakfast buffet that includes homemade cakes and jams is served in the bright dining room or on the patio. Only being accessible on foot and lacking an elevator means this hotel is not ideal for the mobility impaired. For a pick nearer to the town center, and with a bigger pool, consider the Hotel Villa Sanfelice.
