I stayed for three nights in early June. One really nice feature is that they pick you up for free from the ferry in Marina Grande thus eliminating the need to hire an overpriced taxi or to travel on a crowded bus. Their driver Sanjeewa is very kind and helpful.
The location in Anacapri is excellent, the centro storico with several sights and lots of restaurants, cafes and bars is nearby as is the cable car to Monte Solero and several walking trails. They have a lovely swimming pool. It was out of order during my stay, but they had arrangements with another hotel - I was too busy exploring the island, so would not have had time for swimming anyway.
The room was not large but of adequate size, and fine for a short stay. There was enough wardrobe space for my belongings, a TV with some international channels, and aircon which would be useful in the hotter months. However, there was no in-room safe or fridge or minibar. The bathroom was also quite compact but just good enough, it could do with a bit of updating. Shower pressure was so-so, but there was plenty of hot water.
The big disappointment was the breakfast, meagre even by Italian standards. Very basic. The best thing were some mini pastries, but they were only available on the first morning. If any item like cheese or ham was finished it wasn't replenished - well, there wasn't anyone around you could ask.
Check by one of the family members was efficient and friendly, but afterwards I hardly ever saw anyone be it a staff member or one of the family who own the hotel, so I can't really join in the chorus of adoration for the service. The price was reasonable for Capri.

Went for our honeymoon and loved it!
- Amazing staff. Family ran. Sanjiva drove us to and from port (lovely guy). Pasquale runs the pool bar (super friendly) and Fabrizzio was our main guy at the front desk (super helpful and friendly. Helped us book at boat trip which was superb!)
- GREAT location. Highly recommend Anacapri! But this hotel is an amazing location - short walk (3-4 mins) to start of the stores/restaurants, chair lift trip is 5 min walk, bus stop is 5 min walk.
- Pool is amazing! So refreshing and the bar is such a lovely addition
- Rooms are basic but in a good way, also nice and clean
- Breakfast is really nice and always well maintained
- Price is good also!
- Would definitely go back!!!

Overall, Hotel Carmencita was nice given the price. The first night, we stayed in a middle room with a photo of a window painted on the wall. However, there was some noisy neighbors so sleeping the first night was a bit rough. The owner provided a half bottle of wine for the second night and our room was one with a window/balcony facing the pool.

Bathrooms were a but small and the curtain frequently stuck to your body. (I'm 5'9" 155 pounds)

The staff was very courteous and there was transportation provided to the hotel from the port. Returning to the port, using the hotel transportation, cost 3.5 euro per person.

I would recommend this hotel if you are on a budget.

A good decision to stay in Anacapri instead of crowded and touristy Capri.Enhanced further by our decision to stay at Carmencita.

Satish was there to pick us up at Marina Grande and after a quick check in and friendly chat with Fabrizio we were shown up a few steps to our room.The place looks like a home and the room like your bedroom back home.Colourful blue handcrafted tiles,pleasing upholstery, comfy bed give it a very homey homey look.The attached balcony looks out at the swimming pool.The breakfast is good with breads,croissant,coffee,salami- 2 types,and one day excellently prepared eggs with bacon.

The location is excellent...just next to the bus stop and across the street to the beautiful shopping area which has a heady fragrance of sweet smelling flowers.The church with the fabulous tiled flooring, Villa San Michelle,and chairlift a 10 min walk away.

Down the road is Aum Aum a reasonably priced eatery with a wood fired oven which is very popular with the locals.They have a very friendly staff who on request even sing and dance to a popular Italian song with you!

The owners are most helpful and his tip that we go see the blue grotto around 2 pm was priceless.We got to see the grotto in all its splendour and without a wait of even few minutes.

Room Tip: Room 14 has a bigger balcony than the rest.

Our ski club stayed here and had a wonderful experience. Fabrizio put out a great spread for our welcome reception on arrival. He and his family worked very hard to make our stay memorable. Staying in Anacapri was a good choice and a great location close to their main Piazza and shopping.
