Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Weber Ambassador Capri
Avoid - total rip off
Booked suite on strength of web site details. Rooms were cramped and dirty and did not meet expectations. Although they moved us twice the hotel just does not match its advertising. We ended up in a standard room with a nice view but where everything fell apart on touch (shower/TV/Fridge). On asking for an alarm call were told we didn't need one as we'd be woken by the noise from the restauarant at 7 anyway. We moved out the next morning.
Honeymoon from Heaven - Ideal quiet location
My new wife and I spent the most fantastic ten days at the Webber on the Isle of Capri. The location was special, the staff fantastic and the service was also up to scratch. The free mini-bus into the centre was great and the drivers must be applauded for always smiling and taking care of you. Breakfast was a treat with a great view from the terrace, made all the more fun under the charms of Guiseppe and Gianni.
The room had a great view, was spotlessly clean and provided a great setting for a quiet drink when the stars shone above a velvet sea.
There is no pool and the hotel should take it off the pictures in the website as the sea is fantastic and they don't need to advertise like this, they should use the natural beauty as the selling point! Would recommed to anyone and will return!!
It was okay
No pool. It would have been perfect if it had a pool. The public beach was not 8 meters away like the hotel's website claims. It was about a 5 minute walk. The breakfast was nice and the room was clean.
What we discovered the most was the hotel staff was incredibly rude.
They treated us poorly and disrespectful.
Very good but beware no pool!
Good hotel, quiet side of Capri, clean, nice service, too bad they have a large picture of a swimming pool under the title "the amenities" but there is none. It is nearby but expensive (17euros/person/day). Beware of the manager : not a nice person.
Please do not stay
In over 20 years of traveling throughout the world, we have never been purposely deceived by an add for a hotel before. It was quite shocking to arrive at this hotel to find no pool and no private beach as was so prominently displayed on their web site. We were also insulted by the rehearsed lines of the staff saying that the pool was being repaired.
There was not even room for the pool that was displayed on their web site touting "real" photographs. The beach available was not their private beach which resulted in a 17E minimum daily fee. Upon demand, this was refunded back to us, but deception and added fees were at every turn. Others were deceived and shouting matches occurred with the staff. Please stay away!
One of the nicest places in the world
I can't say enough good about the webber amabassador hotel. The peole were outstanding, teh breakfast a feast, and the view unmatched.
I have travelled extensively through europe and no where else have i
received such a warm welcome. This is by far one fo the best. If you
are fortunate enough to stay on this property it will be a privilege.
It surely was mine. c.r. canney
We had only one night to stay on Capri, but we couldn't have chosen better that the Weber. A beautiful view, lovely rooms with balconies overlooking the sea, service excellent. Trying to persuade my daughter to spend her honeymoon there!
We stayed for 3 nights in Jun/2003.From the spacious terrace , we could enjoy the magnificent view of marina piccola , Faraglioni rocks , and so on.It was especially wonderful that a starlit sky and moonlight reflected in a sea surface. Also near Capri town center , it was too distant to walk from hotel. But free transportation service and public autobus were available , there was no problem. Because it takes only 2 minutes to walk to marina piccola , swim wear plus one is enough from our room to marina piccola. Front lady was not sociable , but kind enough and faithful. The rate was very reasonable at Capri area.Facilities were spacious and clean, but , regrettably , old .As the whole , I think that Hotel Weber Ambassador is satisfactory enough and recommend.
Wonderful stay on Capri
I can only give the Hotel Weber Ambassador the highest of marks. We stayed for one week in May of 2003. The room was spacious, modern and very clean. The views from the hotel were breathtaking. The staff, especially Gian Carlo, were very professional, helpful and courteous. The rate was reasonable. All of the services, such as car services to town center, laundry, money exchange, internet service, breakfast, bar service were right on the money! The Weber is located just slightly away and over from the Capri Town Center, so it is peaceful and quiet. We were on Capri for our wedding, so needlesss to say, it was an important time. Everything was perfect! We plan on returning to the Weber for our anniversary. We had a great Capri experience!
A rude welcome
We stayed at the Weber Ambassador in July 2001. Even though we had a confirmed booking of a superior room with balcony, we were given one without. When asking about this, the female proprietor was extremely rude to us, and said that "for this price you cannot expect a balcony". We politely replied that the hotel had given us this price without us even trying to get a good bargain. After a lot of huffing and puffing, she said that we would have to wait until the next day before getting everything sorted out. This meant we missed going to the beach the next day as we were having to await their decision. Finally we got the kind of room we had actually booked. We also witnessed her being extreme rude to another client, whom in his turn were trying to argue a point politey with her. After reading the comment on *****, I think you can safely say that this kind of rude behaviour is more of a habit of hers than her "having a bad day". Stay away!

... on the ferry amongst a large group of Asian tourists. I might add, I have heard very little English on this trip, and of that I've heard, few are actually from the US. I would say I have come into contact with less than 5 people/groups from the US. Sure makes you feel alone! While on the ferry, I bought a bottle of water. I've been really bad at keeping myself hydrated, especially with all the walking and heat. This would turn out to be an unexpected ...

You felt the waves rolling under you and the salty sea splashed your face, arms and legs. Compared to the British weather, it was divine. 22 degrees and out on the water-I was wearing a t-shirt and my katmandu pants.

There was a respected friend of Luigi's and business owner who made his own Limoncello and by-products. One of which is the lemon version of Baileys Irish Cream, only Lemon Cream, so very delicious. The owner says he does have an outlet in Australia so I will try to source it when I get home. In the meantime, I bought a small plastic bottle of this wonderful liqueur. It came in much larger and very attractive bottles, as you ...

Our mini-bus arrived on time to take us to our boat docked in the small port at Massa Lubrense. We had a great little speedboat waiting for us and were joined on-board by 6 others – a Norwegian family of four and an English couple from Amersham called Gilly and Peter, who we had great fun with. Peter looked a bit like Michael Palin (to us) and had a sharp wit too. So ...
... Every Faraglione has a name: The "Faraglione Stella"' is still attached to the coast. The second is "Faraglione di Mezzo" and the third is "Faraglione of Out or Scopolo". Then the captain of our boat gently steered the boat under hole of the I Faraglioni rocks which was fantastic, giving it another perspective; that was very good navigation by the boat caption. These rocks are iconic of Capri and a wonderful natural spectacle! You can also ...
