Hotel Continental, Hotel Metropole, Hotel Palatium ,
now JK Capri....
Almost opposite the former Hotel Grotte Bleue, is located the JK Capri, once called Hotel Continental, managed by Giuseppe Maldacena 13th, who had established a company with the brother-in-law Antonio Cimino, seaman married with Maria Maldacena.
The first plant of the Hotel Continental was a private house named Villa Bovaro, which was built before 1878 and turned into a hotel before 1885, as also witnessed by a C.W. Allers's picture dated 1891, where the only legible word on the front of the building is "Hotel ..."; at that time it belonged to Mario Canale, owner of several real estates all over the island.
