“Friendly albergo”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2012

Friendly and fresh hotel in a beatifull garden with a swimming pool.
We stayed only one night during our trip in Elba. It was also our last night on the island of Elba and it was a nice stay after we camped for 12 days on this beatifull island.
The staff was very friendly. The rooms were nice decorated and very clean. In the evening we had a tasty diner and in the morning a huge breakfast.
The suroundings are very nice and in 10 minutes with the car you are in Portoferraio.

Before booking with this hotel ask about the size and location of your room.
We made a reservation 2 months in advance and when we arrive we were assigned to a lower floor room-almost underground that looked more like a prison cell then a hotel room. We were told that nothing else was available and they couldn't move anyone else as everyone in the upper floor rooms had requested that floor. We ended up leaving so I am not able to tell you anything about the hotel. My word of caution is to be very specific about where your room is located and stay away from the ground floor!
