We stayed at this lovely hotel for 2 nights, and as we had a hire car found it to be in an ideal location, situated on a quiet road overlooking the sea. We were allocated a superior room with sea view, which gave us a balcony with spectacular view and a sumptuous bathroom with large spa bath. I suppose my... More

We relocated from the harbour to the this wonderful small beach just 10 minutes taxi drive away. The food was amazing, just caught in the morning fish, with delicious wine, a very friendly atmosphere and an great view. The value for money was very satisfying, we barely managed to finish our menu. At the end we took advantage of their... More

20 min by car to get the hotel from Gilgio Porto. No public transport thereby. Amazing view and large terrace to enjoy the 180° sea view with a rosmary and other Mediterranea herbs smell. Quite and silent place. Good brackfast. Modern and simple rooms.

I had wanted to stay at this hotel for more than the two nights we managed but for our proposed 3rd and 4th nights they were fully booked with a conference of doctors. Unfortunately they appeared more intent on the guests that were coming and not on the guests there at the time. After our first night we left the... More

Siamo stati all'isola del Giglio, ospiti nell'hotel Arenella ad inizio aprile 2012 e ci siamo trovati benissimo. La camera era assolutamente confortevole, ben al di sopra delle aspettative di un hotel 3 stelle. La vista era bellissima e tutto l'albergo godeva di una pace assoluta. Non c'era alcun tipo di disturbo e rumore, il servizio era perfetto e allo stesso... More

The owners opened up especially for journalists covering the Costa Concordia cruise ship disaster. It was out of season so many of the facilities weren't available (cafe, etc). The welcome was warm, as was my room. It seemed brand new. Clean modern design, comfortable bed, even a whirlpool bath. Views from my balcony were great. It's a twenty minute stroll... More

Within sight of the Italian mainland this ideally situated hotel perches on a hillside giving a superb panorama of coast, sea and Italy. The beach is a short walk downhill and the main attractive (cute) port always within a 5min minibus or taxi ride away. The terrace is ample for evening drinks and just sitting. The rooms are more than... More

We chose the Arenella as a quiet hotel with its own little beach, despite its bad Tripadvisor press - mostly criticising its director and service. The truth was in all ways the opposite. We did not get the room we thought we had reserved; the staff and later the director were charming and apologetic, but the hotel was full so... More

Just out of Giglio Porto about 2 miles is a side road to a small rocky beach. On this, the Arenella Road, is the Hotel Arenella, perched on multiple levels high above the sea. The hotel and the rooms have a marvelous sense of simple modern Italian design. The views are magnificent. The short walk to the beach is down... More
