“Very Comfortable Stay , ver large room, very nice view”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2013

We had an excellent time at Filippo II, a very clean, well serviced, maybe a little spartan hotel. Wonderful view of the bay, fifty steps from the sea, with a private deck (not a beach) creating a private swimming area. Very large room, with separate living room, bathroom and huge terrace. Friendly service. Not a thrilling place, but excellent value for a quiet stay on the water, in the beautiful Argentario region. Friendly reception.

Room Tip: we had room 27, excellent, very large, separate living room, huge terrace, nice view. highly recomme...

This hotel is a true gem, the hotel staff are extremely friendly and helpful. We checked in on the spur of the moment while driving through Italy and checked Trip Advisor for a good hotel recommendation in the area. We were not disappointed.

Positives
The location is tranquil and very quiet
The suite rooms at the end of the passage have a sitting area and separate bedroom
Balcony is great, it has wooden doors to keep the sun out
Friendly staff that are available 24 hours for anything that is required
Breakfast was actually very good and they had eggs on request

Negatives
The bathrooms are old. They need updating. Worst shower/bath i have ever had. Temperature was difficult to get right and only had a hand held shower in the bath.
You need a car to be able to make the most of the area

Overall I would return to this area year after year and I would stay in this hotel again

Room Tip: Rooms at the end of the corridor seem to be bigger. The sea view rooms are spectacular!

My partner and I stayed there and to be honest was concerned it would be a bit of a miss. However we were so pleasantly surprised and flabbergasted by the serenity and the warm service.
We were pleasantly surprised by an upgrade which was two levels and very comfortable and spacious.
The only downside was the buffet breakfast and distance (which isnt a safe to walk) to town.
For a relaxing weekend would definitely recommend.

The service of the Filippo II is great. Every person is very nice and helpful. The room was very comfortable and as we chose a corner room we had a huge balcony with spectacular views. I highly recommend this hotel.

This is my second post about this property. I had to travel to Italy for business last week and had a free day. Decided to spend it in Porto Santo Stefano and stay at Hotel Filippo. I had such a great experience last time so decided to try it again.

FIrst off, the place is beautiful. It's location on the sea and to Porto Santo Stefano cannot be beat. The staff are soooo friendly. I know I am spelling their name wrong, but Illaria and Gianni are fantastic people. One of them was always around to help and went out of their way to make sure our experience was perfect.


Porto Santo Stefano is a beatutiful place. If you are lucky enough to visit, make sure you stay at Hotel (ALBERGO) Filippo II.

Room Tip: Ask for a seaview room on second or thrid floor.

After a long transatlantic flight this was a perfect first stop/day in Italy, about 90 minutes outside of Rome in the charming village of Porto Stefano.
The Hotel is beautiful. We stayed during mid-October 2012 and were upgraded to a suite which has 2 large rooms, a kitchen and a beautiful patio with views, of the bay, that are exceptional.
The hospitality in this hotel was unsurpassed. They were able to assist with an iphone charger, bottle of wine, restaurant recommendations and anything else we would have asked. Thanks Johnny and staff for making our first night in Italy so special!!
You can’t go wrong staying here, we will be back.

It was the tail-end of their season so great value prices being charged for suites. We knew very little about the area so gambled based on very positive reviews. Thankfully, the hotel/location/service lived up to the hype. All of the staff that we met were extremely helpful and friendly. We were given a suite with large wrap-around balcony/terrace even though we only ordered a double room. The room was comfortable and clean, although the bathroom had a few very odd features. Steps lead down to the shore where there is a decked area with loungers: perfect for a few hours in the sun or taking a dip. The nearby fishing village was a 15 minute stroll with enough bars/restaurants to make up for the fact that the hotel restaurant was closed.
