Elba Island is a beautiful place, with plenty of tourist facilities, but it's pretty hard to find a (good) place to stay in winter.
This hotel is one of the few which are opened all the year and it is a good place to stay because it's very close to Portoferraio ferry terminal, it has private parking and a beautiful view on the sea. But that's all. As soon as you enter the lobby you feel like beeing back to the 70s/80s, rooms are not cozy at all, rather cold and with old (old!) furniture. Those on the front of the hotel do partly compensate with the beatiful view on the sea, but those on the rear do definitely not.
Breakfast was very very poor and the breakfast room is as old as the rest of the building.
The most positive thing is the staff, very nice and helpful.
I will probably stay here again in winter, but I would prefer having other options to chose among.More
