View from our room is exceptional. You definitely want a sea view. The staff service was superb - despite a language difference, they all had basic English and tried their best to bridge the gap. The two meals a day was great - food was basic but homemade quality. And plenty if quantity with 3 courses at each meal. Very... More

We were part of the 200th Anniversary Dance Party celebrating Napoleon's first month on the island of Elba - and spent 4 lovely days touring the island, eating in a variety of different restaurants - and dancing (English Country aka French Court Style). The Hotel Villa Ombrosa was our base of operations - we scored room 115 - which was... More

Tucked off the main road but close to the ferry terminal, you will find a small gem of a hotel! It's worth finding if you don't have a vehicle or are only on the Island for a short stay. We were on bikes, and really appreciated both the location and how lovely the hotel was. The rooms are comfortable and... More

Elba Island is a beautiful place, with plenty of tourist facilities, but it's pretty hard to find a (good) place to stay in winter. This hotel is one of the few which are opened all the year and it is a good place to stay because it's very close to Portoferraio ferry terminal, it has private parking and a beautiful... More

Elba Island, Napolean, the true Italian feel, Portoferraio town (the island's capital), great views and a majestic hotel - what more could we ask for having travelled all the way from Australia to this small island off the Ligurian coast of Italy. And the Villa Ombrosia in such a wonderful setting with gorgeous views over the sea, beach and little... More

Elba Island - where Napolean was exiled - is a place where the Italians love to vacation. There are few English speaking locals and you got the feeling they were not happy with Americans showing up on their island. The hotel was nice - rooms were comfortable and clean. What took away from the experience was the treatment at breakfast... More

We spent 6 nights at Villa Omrosa. We had half board included and that was a nice experience. (We were 2 persons and paid approx. 100 euro per person per night). You could choose between lunch and dinner and always with three different proposals. The staff was very helpful and if you didn't want to finish a bottle of wine... More

Almost all the rooms at the Villa Ombrosa enjoy superb views (most from their own balconies) across the bay north of Portoferraio. It is very well situated for easy access into the port and the old town. The rooms are very small but immaculately clean and well fitted out. The food was not special but was absolutely adequate to our... More
