“Cannot understand the good reviews?”
Reviewed June 11, 2013

We were met with the smell cigarettes at reception and on a closer look we realised the very rude woman on reception was indeed smoking! The hotel is old and dated and very overpriced when I think of some of the other places we stayed at in Italy for the same price. I should be fair and mention the girl who we came into contact at breakfast who actually seemed to do everything, she was lovely, spoke amazing English and was very helpful. That's all about I can add. If you're staying in Piombino to get the ferry to Elba, don't, just go straight there.

This hotel is situated on a cliff overlooking the sea. You enter at parking (street) level and take the ocean-view glass elevator down to reception/dining where you are greeted by the nicest staff and owner we've found so far. Catarina speaks 3 languages (Italian, excellent English and some German) and she is so helpful and friendly! The room we had is large and comfortable with 2 twin beds, a mini refrigerator and an ocean view balcony. The food in the restaurant is quite good with prices that are very competitive with restaurants in town. It's about a 15-20 minute to the historical center, but you do need a cab or car to get to/from train station or the port. We came for 1 night and stayed 4. I want to come back someday for sure!

Room Tip: We had 2 twins (very comfortable) for me and my daughter.

I would highly recommend this hotel. The views are BEAUTIFUL!! The staff is great and most of them speak English well. Those that do not, are very helpful trying to figure out what we were trying to say. (We were in another country so of course we do not expect everyone to speak English) Lots of fun using our English-Italian dictionary. Family atmosphere. Breakfast was the typical Italian breakfast at a moderately priced hotel. My only complaint was that we could hear people talking in the room next to us. I would definitely stay at this hotel again! Great value.

Lodged at the hotel for three days in the first half of sept 2012, in a double room single use (no. 59). The access to the hotel is froma little park by the mean of a panoramic but terrible hot lift. The location of the hotel is wonderful, on the sea in front of isola d'Elba. Wifi is free. Room big, but cold. Style: old and not curate (however is a three star). The restaurant is at the floor -3, the panorama is really amazing but both the food and the service is slighty poor (i am Italian nationality). The forniture is quite old and full of plastic flowers. Wifi free in all the hotel. The access to the beach is direct from the lift at floor 0. The room was found in order and clean, the room forniture is quite old. Breakfast, fresh croissant ... But generally poor. All the room are serviced by air condition system well working. More than accettable the bathroom arrangement. Hotel summary: positive and not so expensive, food just sufficient, personnel kindness sufficient, location 6 stars. Enjoy!

I stayed in room 42 the entire month of November while I was working onsite at Lucchini in Piombino. Food is good, house wine is great, service ok--definitely felt like family after 4 weeks. The view of Elba and the coast cannot be overstated. Amazing sunsets, storms, rocky beach--the islands always had a different color to them. I did stay in the off-season, so the rates were halved (E80/night) what summer rates are--but still would come back to see what the hot weather is like. About a 10 minute scenic walk to downtown Piombino. Rooms a little outdated, but clean. TV channel selection in room not good (8ish fuzzy antenna channels), but good WIFI. Would love to return with family!!
