From the moment we stepped off the ferry we were the only guests greeted by the porter to collect our luggage from the ferry door. We were then taken up to the hotel where all the hotel staff were out the front to introduce themselves to us and explain their roles at the hotel. With our fatigue clearly evident after a 30 hour transit from Australia, the front desk staff waived the check in until it suited us and allowed us to go directly to the room for a shower, unpack and some room service followed by our complimentary massages.

Everything about this hotel was 1st class. The rooms, bar, library and DVD selection, complimentary buffet and cooked breakfast, complimentary Internet and mini bar, room service menu, location, view from the hotel and complimentary shuttle service all separate this hotel from any other. Nothing is a problem and the staff will go out of their way to help wherever possible.

One disappointment was not trying the restaurant in house for dinner, however hotel staff were always happy to recommend other restaurants on the island as opposed to pushing the internal restaurant on us as they could see we were interested in seeing the island. With plenty of great restaurants on the island, Da Gelosamina was our favorite in Ana Capri with all food made daily and catering to locals on the island.

Anyone who complains about this hotel must be staying at some unimaginable hotels. The biggest issue for us on deciding on the hotel was the price of the rooms, however once you factor in the additional costs of other hotels such as Internet, minibar, breakfasts, shuttle service, dvd's etc that are included at JK Place the room price is actually extremely reasonable.

All I can say is that if you are going to Capri stay at JK. If you are going to Italy and not planning to go to Capri, JK is worth changing your itinerary for. This is the best hotel we have ever stayed at!

We stayed for three nights over Easter. Reservations where handled fast, we were granted the requested room and met (without exceptions) friendly staff with service from the heart. Mauro, the concierge, is very professional in dealing with clients. All front desk staff is extremely service oriented. Food in their restaurant is oustanding and so are the waiters and waitresses. The GM is all time present and giving you an "at home" feeling. The shuttle service and the house keeping work faultless. A lot is said about the great style and the interiors. Your expectations will not be disappointed. The house looks even better in real life than on their website. This is really a "home away from home" and the good international guest crowd makes the stay even more special. Go for a Deluxe room on the upper floor. It's well worth the price difference.
The weather could not have been worse over Easter (winds, rain, and grey in grey) but that did not affect the overall very good experience. 800 Euros/night were well worth spent ;-)
The only down side. Breakfast selection is very average but still better than in other Italian places. It'd be nice if they served better tea and not the cheapy stuff from tea bags.

Go for: Aurora Restauarnt in Capri, Pizzeria Da Giorgio in Capri and Il Cucciolo in Anacapri
Even if the hotel recommends it, Do NOT go to "Villa Verde". All the other guests and we were deeply disappointed about the nonchallant service and the very average overprized food.

We stayed at this hotel with five other couples for 4 days. The decor is beautiful but the service is terrible. We expected a dream holiday in a five star hotel on the Isle of Capri. Even though it was situated directly on the sea overlooking the harbour we could not find the path leading down to the beach.

The rooms facing the streetside are noisy and the balcony overlooks private homes across the street with laundry hanging out the windows and living rooms facing onto your balcony. We couldn't pull our bedroom drapes for fear of people peaking in. The penthouse was fine but almost 3,000.00 a night. Thus our great expectations.

The Spa was never open, the pool closed around 3PM and the hotel restaurant was never opened. We sat down to breakfast outside by the pool and waited and waited and waited. Finally one of us wandered through the hotel searching for the door to the kitchen so we could place our breakfast order. Everyone was just so rude and acted as though they were doing you a favor. In the evening we met for cocktails before
leaving for dinner and had to set up our own table on the hotel patio. Again someone had to hunt for the waiter. Getting our bill upon check-out was difficult as the hotel wanted to put everyone on the same bill. We would never stay there again.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the sea have a wonderful view. Rooms facing the street are noisy and the balcony is no...

We were doing a tour of the Amalfi Coast and stayed at the JK mid way thru the trip. Although this hotel is lovely and a true Ralph Lauren feel from top to bottom, it's location does not justify the price nor did the service. Four of us were on vacation and after running in to the same guests everywhee we went to eat we realized we were all being told the same places. Some guests were travel agents and were getting a clearly different service level. It is a small hotel so you do notice. The rooms are gorgeuos and spacious, but ours overlooked the very "public beach" which we could not even figure put how to get to. Overlooking the sea is great, but this hotel overlooks the harbor that brings every boat to the island. Walking to the vernicular was easy but that was it. Out shutlle drivers were great and curteous, but again we felt like certain guest were getting preferrential treatment. After 2 nights we were ready to go and at the next stop ran in to the travel agents again and they confirmed their service as far superior to ours (different restauranst, free boat rides, special tours..).for the price of this hotel, everyone should receive equal service. We found our way thru friends to a private beach club on Capri that the hotel "was surprised we found" . Would not give this hotel a 5 star, rather a 4 and really look at the location when going to Capri.

If there was a 6 star to give to any hotel..this place deserves it! We stayed here for 3 nights on our honeymoon and it was above our expectations! The interior design is top notch for being right on the Capri coast overlooking the sea filled with multiple million dollar yachts. Breakfast was amazing with its buffet and the ability to order complimentary eggs any style. We stayed in room #9, which was down one flight from the entrance, but it is on a cliff, so the rooms are built into the side of the cliff. Our room had to be one of the best as it had an extremely private balcony and one of the largest hotel bathrooms I've ever seen, including our own jacuzzi tub big enough for 4 people. Beds were comfy and the room was spotless. Concierge service was also 5-star, having set up dinner reservations and a private boat to go around the island. Even though this hotel is a 5 minute drive to the "center of downtown capri", it is definitely worth staying here. There was never a time where I had to wait more than 5 minutes for the JK Place's car service to pick up or drop us off at any location. I think we actually only had to wait one time for the car (5 minutes max). Staff is extremely accommodating and very friendly. Highly recommend this place..especially for a honeymoon! We will be back soon!

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
The discreet charm of the venue and the comfort of feeling at home, surrounded by precious details, this is the philosophy behind the creation of the JK Place Capri. Set into the cliffs of the enchanting island of Capri, the hotel has twenty-two rooms that echo the style and the concept of a luxury house with another element to boost the charm of the site: the light and color of the sea. Spacious rooms where the artful revival of the classical style is enhanced by the sunny curtains and the luminous white floors, highlighting the spectacular views of the Capri coastlines through the windows and panoramic balconies of the rooms. Then there are the inevitable stylish touches, such as the precious marbles and the grey and white mosaics of the bathrooms, and the supremely elegant black-and-white carpets, conceived like frames marking out the various areas of the bedrooms. The building was first inaugurated as a hotel in 1885 and rapidly became a point of reference for the nobility spending holidays on the island. Now, as then, the hotel offers a splendid pathway to the sea below, while the superb location on the Capri cliff-top gives the guest the sensation of being in absolute contact with the natural environment, almost suspended above the azure seascape. The luxury of discreet elegance and taste make the JK Place Capri a place where comfort and wellbeing are combined with an enviable panoramic position, sheer over the sea, immersed in the luxuriant coastline that has always been an exclusive destination and source of inspiration, a resort for emperors, poets and noble travelers, a haven for the soul in which you can lose yourself in admiration of the sea. ... more   less
