If the last review really was some years back, then an update is needed! This is a modest hotel a short uphill walk from town ... about 10 minutes. Three floors..rooms with balconies over looking the sea. Our room was well kept, clean. Fridge and AC , although we found opening the doors & windows made a better job. They... More

Nice view from balcony, clean rooms, nice staff, good coffee and breakfast and not least good service:) The hotel is located only a few minutes walk from a beautiful beach and you can easily walk to the City centre. Parking is free and just across the street.

This is the third year we stayed at Padulella - it is a modest hotel, but clean and had AC. The breakfast is included. Last we went again, and I found that upon arrival the air conditioning was blowing extremely poorly. I notified the owner who said that if I closed the window all the way it would work better...

Lessons I have learnt from Elba, don't go in August and book way in advance if you do. I failed at both of these and ended up booking Padulella as a last resort. €150 per night was hugely overpriced. Positives: nice balcony. Negatives: air con doesn't work, bunk beds in our room, poor breakfast, gruff staff, a fair walk to... More

Our air conditioning was broken and when we told them they said nobody else was complaining. We had little or no hot water to shower. Also you will get coffee from an automated Lavazza machine which tastes burnt. If you want real cappucino you will have to pay 4 euros for it. It is a very steep walk from the... More

My sister and I (21 & 27 years old) stayed at the Hotel Villa Padulella for 4 nights. We had never been to Elba and were looking for an affordable hotel with a location convenient to the port, beaches, restaurants & shopping. We booked the hotel based off of only a few reviews (that were in English) and we are... More

I stayed at the Padulella for a week at the end of September. Air con was not an issue as the temperature by day did not exceed 30 degrees. I did have a similar experience to other reviewers in that the bathroom/shower was in dire need of a substantial face lift. (The shower door would not stay on its tracks.... More

2 stars for the Villa Padulella - room was tiny and cramped, dated and well used with non-working air conditioning. It was clean however but very basic accommodation. Road outside could be noisy (even from the 2nd floor) - is on a hill - so a steep walk home from the old centre. Breakfast followed in the theme of the... More
