The Hotel Rio is located down by the harbour in the middle of everything. Run by Roberta and Felice it is a family run hotel with character. Felice is an extraordinarily good cook, and oversees a robust and imaginative kitchen, while Roberta fills the place with art from her studio and around the island. An excellent choice if staying in... More

Found this hotel online and decided to book, glad we did. The staff was nice and helped us out the best that they could (us being English only speakers). The room was large and clean. The views were great. They have a full time chef that makes pastries, cakes, and other dishes for breakfast (he also does dinners for parties... More

I can't complain and I can't compliment... everything was pretty average. The hotel seemed on par with the others that we saw on the island and the room was an OK size and was clean. There's a pretty good gelato place outside of the hotel. The best part about this hotel's location was that is was pretty much right accross... More

We arrived on Elba having having booked a hotel. We found the Hotel Rio sul Mare in the picturesque port of Rio Marina. Everything was excellent, from the comfortable room to the extensive breakfast. Also very convenient position for the beach and harbour Great value for money - we couldn't believe the prices! If we return to Elba, we would... More

The owners of the hotel were very nice. But, the hotel is over rated, and the claims are somewhat dishonest. Unless you want to sit in the lobby, right next to the main desk, NO, they do not have Internet!!! The town of Rio Marina offeres free internet, but, it is weka, they want you to send some sort of...

We were so looking forward to our trip to Elba and booked this hotel mainly because of the reasonably good reviews on TA, unfortunately however the whole experience was a massive disappointment and we managed one night on the island before seeking solace back on the mainland. Although we booked and paid for a night in the Hotel MIS-E-RIO, we... More

Don't do it. It's awful...Unless you've just got out of prison or are looking for work on the ferries in which case it's just ok. Honestly, the town is terrible too. Beyond dreary. Better off staying on the mainland.

Hotel is near the port and near everything. Breakfast included the price. First time in Italy coffee was bad. It was weak like tea. With extra pay (1,30 EUR) you could get real coffee.
