10.0 Excellent
Pros: The grounds and buildings and scenery was spectacular...
Cons: The people next door had a baby that was very loud....little sleeping for us for the last night. Very annoying and disappointing for us....
10.0 Excellent
Pros: This is a beautiful place with the best swimming pool I have ever encountered at a resort. It is perfect for serious swimmers. However the little bay is an easy walk and the hotel has complimentary deck chairs as part of the deal. This resort seems almost exclusively run by women and they do a tremendous job. They are helpful, thoughtful and endlessly cheerful. This is our favourite resort in Europe.
Cons: Nothing, it was all perfect, including the weather.
7.9 Good
Pros: The building was fantastic! The hotel was really near the ocean but the swimmingpool at the hotel was not that bad either. The surroundings was beautiful.
9.2 Excellent
Pros: A residence was really nice with nice and helpful service and many opportunities for families (for example: cooking and pool for kids). Ideal to have a breakfast outside with a beautiful view.
Cons: The furnitures were a little old and the bathroom need to be renovated. Other than this everything was clean and cozy.
4.6 Okay
Pros: Beach, parking garage.
Cons: Dark rooms, one bedroom had just one tiny window, poor furniture quality, cold children's pool (sea was bit warmer), closed reataurants during lunchtime, no food store nearby. In the building was parking but unlogically our parking space was in the oposite parking lot. One of the biggest disappointments so far. Pictures on the website contradicts the reality. Overpriced for what we got. We decided to leave this and stayed elsewhere.
7.5 Good
Pros: Friendly staff, beautiful surroundings, very basic apartments. The restaurant on site is lovely as are the few restaurants near the beach.
Cons: Very remote so a car is a must.
6.0 Good
Pros: The property per se and the location are absolutely stunning. The buildings have an unique architecture and are located in some amazing gardens - very very special surroundings. The pool for adults also looks amazing.
Cons: The apartments of the residence are really really basic, not to say poor. The kitchen is equiped with the basic things that one might need, but all the furniture is old and rundown. We had a really hard time using the bathroom which looked extremely used and badly mantained.

Pros: The property was quaint and full of character but with the right amount of luxury. The staff were so smiley and great to deal with. The free breakfast exceeded expectations. The sunset was breathtaking. Beach chairs could be reserved. 10-15 min drive into town made this s good location for us.

8.3 Excellent
Pros: Excellent hotel, but the restaurant staff not so much! They seemed bothered and upset most of the time. The bartender was awesome and always served with a smile as well as the front desk staff.
Cons: The restaurant waiters. Not welcoming at all.
4.6 Okay
Cons: Beach side is very small and stony, absolutely not suitable for swimming. Pictures make false impression that hotel have nice beach side.
7.9 Good
Pros: Very delicious breakfast, big room and even bathroom, nice staff, conveniently near the port and a good spot to travel around island.
Cons: Nice beach but probably because vicinity of the port the sea isn't very clean, so don't expect a jump in. There is a nice pool instead if you like a lot of kids. Pool toilets should be cleaned more often, they were beyond words at out stay there. Also white lobby furniture and grass beanbags are far from white and inviting and the pond in front of the hotel looks very deserted. Don't get me wrong, it's a nice enough place but with a bit more care and put some thought in it, it can be great. Oh, one more...please mow the grass after 9, on holidays we like to sleep in sometimes.
8.3 Excellent
Pros: Breakfast Good ! Situation and facilities perfect. Clean, friendly staff. Rooms a bit depressing.... not charming.
Cons: Upgrade of the rooms and the bathroom
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The hotel has a beautiful pool, also some sunbeds nearby on a small beach area. It was pleasant to stroll beside this. Food was good, staff friendly and helpful. Room more than comfortable. Only problem was the hotel was so nice we did not want to leave it to sight see!
Cons: Would have been nice to have coffee served at breakfast instead of self service. Don't recommend the scrambled eggs!

5.0 Okay
Pros: The lady on the reception was very helpful and tried her best. Just too remote without a car. The campsite across the road was good for a meal (it did say no non residents but was ok)
Cons: If you don't have a car you are stuck. 2 buses a day, 9.20am and 1.30pm in and out of town. The restaurant was closed 2 weeks ago . At least 20 mins down hill and up the road to get to a restaurant. Also no beer in hotel. Winter bus times are poor. We left after 1 night and stayed in Portoferraio.
9.2 Excellent
Pros: The location of the hotel is beautiful, there is a sea view and there is peace and quiet. The cleanliness was taken care of in the room. Portoferraio is a 5-minute drive away.
Cons: Breakfast was rich but uneventful, the same menus were set daily. At our departure in the morning there was no opportunity to get lunchbox or coffee even though I asked for it the day before. The room was running water from the air-conditioning. A septic tank stinks in the car parking lot.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Decent size but with friendly staff. Family run. Good facilities.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Quiet in the middle of the woods with a nice view that you can enjoy at the hotel‘s restaurant or pool. You def. need a car however. The staff was also very nice and the room lovely and clean.
8.3 Excellent
Pros: The staff, particularly Jessica, were so helpful and understanding when we shortened our stay. They also shuttled us to town twice to help out. Great location and views if you are visiting the island and have a vehicle.
Cons: Its rather far from town and if you dont have a car the taxi fares are genuinely obscene for a mere 5kms. The public transport is very infrequent and cannot be relied upon.
8.8 Excellent
Pros: The staff were very friendly and helpful even ironed some of my clothes as I forgot my travel iron The location was great The view fantastic The pool area was great The room was cleaned daily and fresh towels also provided daily
Cons: The shuttle service to the town was not available until late June so we had to hire a car as taxis up and down were 15 Euro’s each way working out quiet expensive on a 7 night stay! We did walk down into Portoferraio once or twice but it took well over an hour on a busy road!! No footpath! The hairdryer provided was useless! And the hotel bar was closed at 11pm which when on holiday is a little early!

9.6 Excellent
Pros: Pool, being near the seaside, quiet, comfortable rooms, nice bar staff.
Cons: Paying for beach towels
3.3 Mediocre
Pros: no fresh fruit, poor quality breakfast overall
Cons: booked rooms with balcony and sea view, received rooms above kitchen in bar alley, smelling of food. Beds old and poor quality. Not recommended to stay here.
7.5 Good
Pros: the rest was allright
Cons: no vegetables there
7.5 Good
Pros: Great little resort across from Portoferraio. Beautiful views of the town from the resort. It was clean and easy to get to from Portoferraio. The pool area was large and clean. Supermarket is close by also. Parking on site is free.
Cons: Very outdated decor. There was 2 large groups (2 buses worth of people) staying at the same so they got most of the attention from staff, including tables at breakfast. Very minimal options at breakfast if you have dietary requirements and restrictions. Very expensive dinner is offered at resort.
7.5 Good
Pros: The room was nice, a bit small for three people, but lovely balcony and view, as we paid extra for a sea view. Stairs were a bit difficult as husband uses a cane, but manageable. The cleaning girls were excellent, came running when they saw us with our suitcases and carried them up to our room refusing a tip, which we insisted she take. The rooms were nicely cleaned and made up each day when we returned.
Cons: We ate at the hotel for dinner one evening, very disappointing. When we made reservations for 8 they said our table would be ready whenever we arrived. No one said the dinner started at 7:30 and ended at 9:00, VERY unusual for Italy. The appetizer buffet was almost completely empty of any decent appetizer, mostly so sorry looking meat, cold, which should have been hot, balls of something and little else. When our pasta dishes were delivered one was not even warm and the other two just barely warm enough to eat. The main course was hot as we complained about the pasta dishes so I think they took notice. The dessert table had very little left, we saw several lovely desserts being served earlier but found one sorry looking chocolate dish and a cake, some apples were also on the table but they were available at the reception desk all the time. When making the reservations we should have been told the hours and we would have eaten earlier. I think a lot of the guest eat all their meals at the hotel and know to get there at 7:30 and enjoy the buffet tables. Even saw people taking their desserts to their table before the meals were served. Would definitely skip the hotel dinner (lunch may be the same) and eat at the nice restaurant just up the road, as we did! Staff didn’t seem to care when we checked out and expressed our disappointment in not being informed of the dinner hours

7.5 Good
Pros: Perfect place for those who come with a car and want to explore the island. All basic facilities, good air con, balcony, nice and sunny pool to chill.
Cons: There was a very, very loud and noisy youth party one night - we haven't been noticed about that event before and we couldn't sleep even with earplugs.
8.3 Excellent
Pros: Accomodation was very nice and dinners, breakfasts were delicious. I was satisfied.
3.8 Mediocre
Pros: One lady the does day-time reception was very nice, she speaks English and is friendly. Not the grumpy woman behind computer she does not even try to talk English, not nice, not helpful, passive aggressive.
Cons: Everything said on the property is a lie. It does not have a restaurant (where you can eat on daily basis), the is no wine tasting on a winery, no hot springs, not close to ferry, no people that understand hospitality and customer friendliness, tv not working "oh sorry the maintenance guy has gone home I cannot do anything" , breakfast dude does not let you eat at patio so your forced to eat inside, poor breakfast service (why can"t these people not understand the first thing of the day is breakfast and SMILE for once!), poor breakfast choices-you will get a cappuccino but with a long face and a huge sigh. Did not get daily cleaning. Coffee bar open after 10am, why???
4.2 Okay
Pros: It was a place to stay.
Cons: It was extremely dated, dingy, and overall would not stay here again.
7.5 Good
Pros: They are so friendly and simply. I also like the dinner that they offer and live music every Wednesday.
7.1 Good
Pros: Private entrance to our studio, comfortable bed, close parking
Cons: Kitchen was in a wardrobe (therefore it was tiny) and the freezer was not working at all.
7.9 Good

Guests may use a roundtrip airport shuttle for a surcharge, and free self parking is available onsite.
6.7 Good
Pros: Beautiful bay views. Allocated beach beds.
Cons: For us the stay was ruined by our initial welcome (or lack of it!) we arrived around 7pm after a days travelling to be told we couldn’t eat in their restaurant as my partner didn’t have long trousers! This was not stated on their website nor were we warned about this prior to our stay and was the reason we Initially chose this hotel over Hermitage. We were offered toast in room service! This meant every evening we had to walk to the nearest restaurant (which were just as miserable and poor food) or drive out - which we happily did just to get away from the uncomfortable atmosphere at this hotel! The rooms were small, hard beds and flat pillows. Breakfast was good food but ruined by the amount of wasps around. Not one member of staff made us feel welcome. Completely up their own arses! Also the resort is quite restrictive, not much to do. Having visited other bits of the island there are far nicer places to stay.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Lovely staff. The most beautiful location I've ever seen. The beach was clean and glorious with your own sun loungers, towels provided. Very relaxed atmosphere
Cons: There could have been more information in the room regarding food. Dinner especially. A menu would have been nice and alternatives if you did not want anything too formal. Some bathrobes would have been nice too,
7.5 Good
Pros: Very friendly staff Good location Great Beach Food was very good
Cons: Service was quite slow and at dinner we were never offered dessert or coffee etc Suddenly all staff had disappeared
4.2 Okay
Pros: AC unit worked for first 15 min, then then it just blew warm, smelly air. When I complained they said "Usually we do not turn on air conditioning in May". For a 4-star hotel to tell this to the guest is unacceptable. The temperature in the room did not drop below 24C Boring breakfast, fixed dinner menu. 2.5 star, no more.
6.7 Good
Pros: The property in general was fine. Staff seemed kind and the room was clean. Breakfast buffet was ok, not extra rich though. Sea is nice, clean. Having a private beach is also an advantage.
Cons: The main problem was the location of the hotel. We had b&b in order to experience the local food at the restaurants nearby. But, forget about it. There are around 5 restaurants at the Biodola bay and none of them are good. You have to drive to the city center/or other bays but we didn’t have a car and the last bus to turn back to hotel was only at 19:30. It’s not possible to walk since it’s really hilly. Additionally, the hotel has interesting regulations. It was not possible to enter to the swimming pool before 9:00 and after 19:00. It’s really early!!! The sun was shining! It also happened several times that they cleaned the room with “do not disturb” sign. Also, keep in mind that you need to pay for the towels at the beach. Only the umbrealla and sun beds are included in the hotel price.
8.8 Excellent
Cons: The bird tapping on my window in the morning
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Location and food was fantastic. The beach beautiful and the chairs they provided free with umbrella were very comfortable. The views were unbelievable.
Cons: Hotel should provide towel rack. Customers were placing their towels over the railings. It really took way of the beauty of the hotel.

Cons: Nothing, everything was fine.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Great location ... great place to centralize on the island and then adventure around.. warning!!! Take your car over for the extra $100euros-it’s priceless and the local buses are almost nonexistent.. however be aware that there are some VERY narrow roads (like one car wide) that can really give you a high pucker factor when you’re the driver
Hotel Hermitage - Portoferraio - Bedroom

Featured amenities include a business center, limo/town car service, and dry cleaning/laundry services. Guests may use a roundtrip airport shuttle for a surcharge, and free self parking is available onsite.
8.8 Excellent
Pros: Great location, beautiful views, good beach, pristine water, lovely friendly staff, great swimming pools, good food in the restaurants. Awesome swimming teacher, Andrea. The breakfast was good for Italy. Nothing was too much bother.
Cons: The rooms needs a bit of a revamp. The bathrooms and walk in wardrobes were v small for the price compared to other top notch hotels we have stayed at around the world. Also a Nespresso machine and tea making facilities as a standard feature would be nice and maybe a welcome drink/snack/fruit/chocs etc.... When you are paying 1000 euros a night for a family room, expectations are high. The hotel had the feel of slightly faded glory. The first time we ordered room service, they brought us sachets of oil, vinegar, salt and pepper instead of bottles and mills. Not good enough for a 5 star hotel. To be fair they didn’t make that mistake twice.... They also need parasols on the sun beds around the pools, so you can watch your kids in the shade.... 14 euros for an apérol spritz....
8.8 Excellent
Pros: The location of this hotel is so beautiful. Even though we only paid for a garden view room, they upgraded us to a sea view for no cost. The staff is all bi-lingual and very friendly - we especially found the waitstaff to be great. Carlos at Reception was exceptional - he got us a taxi from the ferry and was very helpful. The room was lovely and comfortable, my only quibble was that there was no iron and the hair dryer was very poor quality. But when you are staying a t beach who really cares! The beach and a pool were exceptional. My mom and I spent the whole day gassing out at the amazing views and had a delicious lunch at the swim up bar in the pool. It was exactly the R&R we were looking for. The food at any of the restaurants at the resort was delicious - including the breakfast. The last night we ate at the main dining hall as everything else was closed for dinner, and while we grumbled a little about having to get dressed up, the food was worth it! We did the pre-fix menu with the salad and dessert buffet, and it is well worth the money. We had a grand time and savored every bite. The last thing I will say is that although the restaurants are great, be forewarned that there are no other places to eat outside the resort if you don't have a car. The resort is on the other side of the mountain so you can't get back to Portoferrio without a taxi, and we didn't want to pay $25 euros for a cheaper meal. But other than that it is exceptional!
Cons: The resort is very secluded so don't expect to go elsewhere once you get there if you don't have a car. I would have liked more casual beachfront options for dinner and a little downtown to do shopping.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: The view, the restaurant & the BBQ! Very clean.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Exceptional hotel, staff and location. Couldn't ask for more. First class
Cons: n/a
8.8 Excellent
Pros: Beach area is fantastic. Amazing location. Really relaxing vibe to the hotel. We had the 4 course dinner in the restaurant which we thought was fantastic!
Cons: No tea/coffee facilities in the room would expect a nespresso machine which is pretty standard these days. Although we had some very good service, especially in the evening restaurants! We dined at both. I would say the staff give off an unfriendly vibe in general. Could have more people by the beach. 1 server for the whole beach is quite poor. Travelling in September a lot of close by restaurants were closed for the season.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Superb amenities and location. Excellent staff + service, superb.
Cons: Bathroom not great. Terrible closing loo seats. Should be soft close for 5 star hotel. Silicone around Bath.. poor. Tired paintwork around doors. Otherwise perfect + very clean. Lack of privacy between balconies on bedroom terrace.
6.7 Good
Pros: Nice hotel,nice location but living on it's reputation. Needs to be improved in certain areas such as restaurant options that are not all expensive.

Cons: No A/C or Fan , very noisy outside . Internet seemed to disconnect every 10 mins.
8.8 Excellent
Pros: Really nice staff and helpful. Very clean rooms and public areas. good space for parking .
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Location is absolutely stunning, the rooms are clean and comfy. We had a big terrace as well. We started by booking one night but ended up extending our stay as the place was amazing. There is a beautiful beach just outside, a couple of nice restaurants and a little shop - what more do you need for a perfect vacation ;-)
5.8 Okay
Pros: Owner was kind and we get iron in our room, thanks!
Cons: If you dont have a car it is difficult to go to center and other cities, bus going only few times per day, last bus to Bagnaia is at 17:40, really early, taxi also expensive. :( Personal could be kinder, 15 minutes past 22 we want to drink one cocktail, because I have a birthday this day, but barmen was really unkind. No cups and water kattle in room, it would be nice if we could make tea by ourselves.
8.8 Excellent
Pros: lovely view from our room.
Cons: there was no iron
7.9 Good
Pros: Good location, overall quiet area almost right at Bagnaia beach. Balcony. Parking included, which is nice. Luciano and the staff were very helpful. Good espresso and croissants at the café.
Cons: The overall experience regarding phone reception (4G) on the island is somewhat unfullfilling, I’d like to think that the wifi was set up to match that experience. I guess we should all limit our internet use from time to time :-) Though I would like to add that I was given extra acess to a better wifi at the café!
9.2 Excellent
Pros: Situation is perfect for beach holiday
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Beach holiday, no cars along the promenade, lovely restaurants nearby. Sailing club, boat rental, children's playground at the beach, lovely sunsets, friendly people, convenience store, snack bar and breakfast at the hotel if needed. We had an apartment and after a morning swim, we brought the fresh croissants and bread to our flat. Bustop in front of the door to travel around. Extremely friendly staff, thank you also for organising a doctor to come to the hotel to give me a prescription and for having the pharmacy deliver my medicine to the door!
Cons: Everything was perfect!

Pros: wonderful hidden location! in the middle of nature with stunning view on portoferraio bay. Very beautiful terrace, cosily furnished, beautiful well kept Garden. I've had a single room, with own bathroom, which was small but absolutely sufficient for my purpose. Breakfast was very good. I certainly can recommend the hotel and I myself will stay there again, for sure...
Cons: ---

Pros: Beautifully located, with lovely view over Portoferraio. Very relaxing atmosphere. It was very special to have breakfast on the terrace with harp music playing in the background. It was the perfect holiday feeling!!! Staff was really friendly and accommodating. Dinner at the restaurant of the hotel was always nicely presented and tasted delicious. Our room was comfortable; we had a lovely view from our terrace.

8.8 Excellent
Pros: Great location, beautiful views, good beach, pristine water, lovely friendly staff, great swimming pools, good food in the restaurants. Awesome swimming teacher, Andrea. The breakfast was good for Italy. Nothing was too much bother.
Cons: The rooms needs a bit of a revamp. The bathrooms and walk in wardrobes were v small for the price compared to other top notch hotels we have stayed at around the world. Also a Nespresso machine and tea making facilities as a standard feature would be nice and maybe a welcome drink/snack/fruit/chocs etc.... When you are paying 1000 euros a night for a family room, expectations are high. The hotel had the feel of slightly faded glory. The first time we ordered room service, they brought us sachets of oil, vinegar, salt and pepper instead of bottles and mills. Not good enough for a 5 star hotel. To be fair they didn’t make that mistake twice.... They also need parasols on the sun beds around the pools, so you can watch your kids in the shade.... 14 euros for an apérol spritz....
8.8 Excellent
Pros: The location of this hotel is so beautiful. Even though we only paid for a garden view room, they upgraded us to a sea view for no cost. The staff is all bi-lingual and very friendly - we especially found the waitstaff to be great. Carlos at Reception was exceptional - he got us a taxi from the ferry and was very helpful. The room was lovely and comfortable, my only quibble was that there was no iron and the hair dryer was very poor quality. But when you are staying a t beach who really cares! The beach and a pool were exceptional. My mom and I spent the whole day gassing out at the amazing views and had a delicious lunch at the swim up bar in the pool. It was exactly the R&R we were looking for. The food at any of the restaurants at the resort was delicious - including the breakfast. The last night we ate at the main dining hall as everything else was closed for dinner, and while we grumbled a little about having to get dressed up, the food was worth it! We did the pre-fix menu with the salad and dessert buffet, and it is well worth the money. We had a grand time and savored every bite. The last thing I will say is that although the restaurants are great, be forewarned that there are no other places to eat outside the resort if you don't have a car. The resort is on the other side of the mountain so you can't get back to Portoferrio without a taxi, and we didn't want to pay $25 euros for a cheaper meal. But other than that it is exceptional!
Cons: The resort is very secluded so don't expect to go elsewhere once you get there if you don't have a car. I would have liked more casual beachfront options for dinner and a little downtown to do shopping.

8.8 Excellent
Pros: Beach area is fantastic. Amazing location. Really relaxing vibe to the hotel. We had the 4 course dinner in the restaurant which we thought was fantastic!
Cons: No tea/coffee facilities in the room would expect a nespresso machine which is pretty standard these days. Although we had some very good service, especially in the evening restaurants! We dined at both. I would say the staff give off an unfriendly vibe in general. Could have more people by the beach. 1 server for the whole beach is quite poor. Travelling in September a lot of close by restaurants were closed for the season.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Superb amenities and location. Excellent staff + service, superb.
Cons: Bathroom not great. Terrible closing loo seats. Should be soft close for 5 star hotel. Silicone around Bath.. poor. Tired paintwork around doors. Otherwise perfect + very clean. Lack of privacy between balconies on bedroom terrace.
6.7 Good
Pros: Nice hotel,nice location but living on it's reputation. Needs to be improved in certain areas such as restaurant options that are not all expensive.

5.0 Okay
Pros: Location is good and the staff is nice
Cons: Too expensive for the quality . The room shouldn't cost more than 70, 80 euros maximum. We paid 118 per night for a very basic room. We had to pay to rent a beach towel. For the price we paid they should provide that service for free.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Nice hotel near a small free beach & few minutes walking from the city. Great service and comfy level, especially good and rich buffet breakfast.
Cons: Our budget room window was directly opening to a wall (the lower level of a garden), don't choose budget room if possible.
6.3 Good
Pros: The location was peaceful and nearby a beach. 15 minute walk required to get to the center.
Cons: When we arrived the elevator was broken and they didn't manage to fix it during our 3 days staying. We were at the 2nd floor and had to carry our heavy bags ourselves up and down. Our room was very warm and after asking for someone to inspect our Airco the receptionist friendly replied that they turned off the airco in the whole building because it was not warm anymore at that moment... (September 26-28°)

Pros: Excellent hotel, but the restaurant staff not so much! They seemed bothered and upset most of the time. The bartender was awesome and always served with a smile as well as the front desk staff.
Cons: The restaurant waiters. Not welcoming at all.
4.6 Okay
Cons: Beach side is very small and stony, absolutely not suitable for swimming. Pictures make false impression that hotel have nice beach side.
7.9 Good
Pros: Very delicious breakfast, big room and even bathroom, nice staff, conveniently near the port and a good spot to travel around island.
Cons: Nice beach but probably because vicinity of the port the sea isn't very clean, so don't expect a jump in. There is a nice pool instead if you like a lot of kids. Pool toilets should be cleaned more often, they were beyond words at out stay there. Also white lobby furniture and grass beanbags are far from white and inviting and the pond in front of the hotel looks very deserted. Don't get me wrong, it's a nice enough place but with a bit more care and put some thought in it, it can be great. Oh, one more...please mow the grass after 9, on holidays we like to sleep in sometimes.
8.3 Excellent
Pros: Breakfast Good ! Situation and facilities perfect. Clean, friendly staff. Rooms a bit depressing.... not charming.
Cons: Upgrade of the rooms and the bathroom
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The hotel has a beautiful pool, also some sunbeds nearby on a small beach area. It was pleasant to stroll beside this. Food was good, staff friendly and helpful. Room more than comfortable. Only problem was the hotel was so nice we did not want to leave it to sight see!
Cons: Would have been nice to have coffee served at breakfast instead of self service. Don't recommend the scrambled eggs!

10.0 Excellent
Pros: The personal touch of a family run hotel. The garden with plenty of seating in the shade: never any pressure on sunbeds! The excellent meals: great value.
Cons: Tiny private pebbly beach, but plenty of sunbeds and the sea was crystal clear.
6.7 Good
Pros: The sea view was lovely. Comfortable room
Cons: Neighbours dogs barking very early in the morning. Staff could have been more helpful and welcoming both at front of house and in the restaurant. Balcony very small. Shower cubicle tight. Pebble beach.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The staff were great, friendly and helpful. The location is excellent, close to the centre but quiet. The breakfast was very good. A really lovely stay. Recommend
9.2 Excellent
Pros: Right on the beach and if you have a seafront room with balcony the view is mighty fine. Also just around the corner from all the town’s action and ferries but without the noise. The hotel also has its own private beach with deck chairs.
Cons: Quite a small room with an extremely tight shower so if you’re of a larger size you may well find it a struggle.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Location is good and central for a beach, and easily accessible for town or port sides of Portoferraio. The staff are exceptionally kind, friendly and efficient. It was a pleasure to stay there. The rooms have all you need and are very clean. The breakfast buffet is welcoming, the cakes delicious. Compliments and thanks to the team there.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Fully-serviced hotel with comfortable and well-equipped rooms, excellent dining room and friendly and competent staff. I have stayed there several times and there is nowhere else in Portoferraio that gives as good value for money or such a good guest experience.
Cons: Just one minor point was that the light in the room wasn't bright enough to enable reading at the desk and there was no desk lamp.
3.8 Mediocre
Pros: Good location
Cons: This hotel was terrible value for money I paid a lot of money for a tiny room Bathroom window didn’t open He had a garden / road view with works being done early morning and it was noisy The TV was fixed high up on wall and dad found it difficult to hear it unless volume was high and it disturbed neighbours so he could not even watch tv in his room and he had to join the common room Meals were in the garden and birds would fly over his head Overall I would never ever consider rebooking this The staff was awful to my father and the room was terrible I paid a fortune and I feel it was an utter rip off
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Great view and excellent breakfast
Cons: Bathroom was good but as usual with the Bidet its a bit cramped. Shower takes a little time to warm up but its very hot here so not too much of an issue.

Pros: The location in the old town was spectacular and convenient.
Cons: Bathroom smelled like urine. Dirty dishes in sink , dishwasher was full of dirty dishes. Trash had not been removed. Kitchen smelled like garbage. No hand towels for bathroom. No wastebaskets in bathroom or bedroom. Stove didn’t work. We were not notified when additional quests arrived to share the space. Lights in kitchen and living area were broken. No mirror in bedroom.
6.7 Good
Pros: Situation
Cons: For open room it was not key. Very rustic
4.2 Okay
Pros: The location is nice at the center of old port, very near to Napoleon's House.
Cons: The apartment is really run down, but cleanish although that s difficult to say with all that old furniture. The host speaks no English. The breakfast is one coffe and a sugary croissant, so would not really call it breakfast.
7.9 Good
Pros: Adequate value for the price. Very nice location in the old part of Portoferraio. It is a small appartment with Kitchen, Living, small bathroom with shower place and two bedrooms.
Cons: everything in the apartment is quite old and worn out. But you can't ask for more as the price is so convenient
7.9 Good
Pros: Well, we booked this room a little bit late because of an unexpected surprise, luckily this room was still available for checking, the host is very nice and patient for answering all of my questions, just one thing that the bathroom should be shared with other guests and quite small. the apartment found in the center city, really nearby the commercial street.
8.8 Excellent
Pros: My room had a very nice and comfortable double bed, along with two chairs, a tall table with shelves, a large wardrobe, and hooks on the wall for hanging things. Also the walls were nicely decorated with little paintings. Plus there was a small electric heater. Two towels were provided. The room definitely made a good impression when I entered the first time, which was important since I was staying 6 nights (it was my base in Elba). The guesthouse has an old-fashioned ambience and a good location - deep inside the old town, up a picturesque flight of stairs (Via Napoleone), on a quiet little street, close to Napoleon's residence. It's just a couple of minutes uphill from Piazza della Repubblica. (One more thing: I got a good off-season price since I was there in March.)
Cons: When I first arrived, I had to call the guesthouse, and ended up waiting 15-20 minutes for someone to come and let me in. (It was the girlfriend of Alberto, the man I spoke to. She didn't speak much English but was very friendly.) My first morning I was surprised there was no hot water in the bathroom, but later I contacted Alberto and the problem was fixed. There was no electric kettle to heat water for tea or coffee (and no tea/coffee), and the fridge was switched off - there was even a sign in Italian asking guests not to use the kitchen. The free breakfast is just a tiny cup of coffee and a piece of pastry (I guess this is typical in Italy!) at a cafe on the waterfront.
4.2 Okay
Pros: Close to city centre. At least provided us with a complimentary meal when everything finally was straightened out.
Cons: Owner was not there to meet us. Waited for 1.5 hrs to get let in. Women was cranky and not cooperative. Niece who still had to come to clean room was extremely helpful and courteous.
5.8 Okay
Pros: Breakfast in a local nearby bar by the port.
Cons: No WiFi available despite being advertised: I asked the owner, but he never answered my text. Old house, small bathroom.
