“Exceeded all the expectations”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2011

Me and my friends stayed at Villa Capitorsola in the end of July - beginning of August 2011. The hotel has exceeded all our expectations. Breathtaking view from the room to the sea, mountains and Capoliveri town (even without getting out of bed). Villa is decorated in a sophisticated and elegant manner, rooms are furnished in a modern style. Fresh fruit salad, flavorous coffee, delicious cookies etc. for breakfast. Valentina and Graziano were profuse in their hospitality. Valentina was always lavish in her outgoingness and responsiveness to help us on any issue. I would definitely recommend this hotel to everyone who is going to Elba!

3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2011

Overall this B&B is quite O.K. The rooms are pleasant and the proprietor is service-minded, but speaks strictly Italian. There are a few further drawbacks. Noise: the proprietors habitually drive their various vehicles around the house (past several bedroom windows) early and late although there is ample parking space a few meters away. The doors to the corridor, furthermore, are not close to soundproof. The garden and its amenities are not very inviting - we spent our time at the hotels almost entirely in our rooms. Unless you enjoy a really crowded beach, you will also need a car to get around. Distances to the closest beaches (indicated on the B&B website) proved to be off the mark. The cleaning was professional, but the linen and towels were changed only once in a week, despite written information that it would be changed every three days. One of our two rooms had old plumbing - screeching old faucets and a toilet which did not flush properly. We regret to say that we do not recommend this B&B strongly.

Room Tip: Most rooms have modern bathrooms, but at least one has faulty plumbing/faucets

This B&B is absolutely stunning. Great decor, spotless clean, good size rooms, great view (and free wi-fi!). Delicious breakfast too. The owner is very nice, although there was a bit of a language barrier :( The only small negative is that the doors to the rooms have no sound proof. But overall, this is a perfect destination for a getaway to Elba.
