Expert review of Casa Malua

Cool central Capri apartments for the independent traveller.

The independent traveller will find much to appeal at these lovely little apartments that are part b&b, part hotel, as you'll have breakfast delivered and daily cleaning included in the price.

Location: 

Just off the Piazzetta, Casa Malua apartments are fantastically central. From the ferry, take the funicular to the Piazzetta, pick up a map from the tourist office on the corner and weave your way up to Via Sopramonte, a five-minute walk away. Bars and restaurants are on your doorstep, as are all those opportunities to flex your shopping muscles. 

Bedrooms: 

There are three apartments available. All are different but share features: light, bright rooms with light-coloured floor tiles and furniture, a white/cream/beige palette with flashes of colour (red, green, orange, blue) picked out in cushions or bed coverings, and a kitchen or cooking area, including fridge.

My favourite is the Tragara: a large room dominated by the bed, with a sofa, a neat little 'kitchen' that is housed in a cupboard, and a lovely terrace with table and chairs, that looks out over Capri. The bathroom, off the main room, benefits from a window and a decent shower (with shampoo/soap and so forth provided).

Castello is a slightly bigger apartment: the bedroom is smaller (with a balcony) but there is a separate lounge/kitchen area. Moneta has a separate kitchen (with table and chairs). TV and internet facilities are also included.

Eating and drinking: 

Breakfast is delivered and there are cooking facilities and a supermarket nearby, but lazy travellers might want to take advantage of the takeaway service of the nearby restaurant.

Service: 

Apart from the breakfast delivery, apartments are cleaned each day and owner Antonio (who also runs a nearby travel agency) is on hand for any information/help with travel plans.

Who stays there: 

Those who like to do their own thing: independent travellers, families with small children or, if you took a couple of apartments, families with older children or groups of friends.

Price advice: 

Remarkably reasonable for Capri. The apartments are open for ten months of the year (closed Jan/Feb).

Pros: 
Good value
Great location
Cons: 
Lacks the creature comforts of a hotel
