Only stayed 2 nights, we were made to feel so welcome - nothing was too much hassle. Beautiful location with private pier for you to sunbathe. Great breakfast spread, large bedrooms with sun terrace. We will definitely come again!

We spent three days at Hotel Filippo II in early October. After a long flight from the US and before a hectic week in Rome, this was a perfect beginning to our vacation. The accommodations are lovely, and just as they are pictured. Our room included a bedroom, bath, living room with kitchette and a huge balcony overlooking the sea. The grounds and gardens, and of course the sea views, are wonderful. Best of all, the staff is top-notch. Every staff member went out of his/her way to be helpful and kind to us; they provided excellent advice for our excursions, fixed my phone, and always greeted us warmly. We highly recommend Hotel Filippo II.

Fantastic little hotel in Southern Toscana. The hotel is located at a rock high above the sea with a magical view.

The rooms where nice and very clean. We stayed in a room high up in the building with one bed room, one living room and a bath room as well as a large balcony.

The personnel was very nice and helpful and the service, especially in the lobby, was excellent. We used the large terrace in front of the hotel a lot. Fantastic spot with a panorama view and nice seating where we enjoyed local prossecco in the after noons.

The hotel does not have a pool but this did not disturb the vacation at all. Guests can enjoy from the nice little private pier with sun beds (free of charge) that is located close to the hotel. At the pier you can order food and drinks from the hotel's restaurant during the day.

I can recommend driving around in the area. Places to visit include e.g. Porto Santo Stefano or Porto Ecole. We found a nice little restaurant not far from the hotel which became our favourite called "Due Pini". Spectacular sunset and the food (sea food) was fantastic and not too expensive.

There are also boat trips from Argentario to other islands, golf courses close to Porto Ecole and large beaches close by. We did ,however, not try this.

Room Tip: All rooms are very nice. However choose the rooms towards the sea and high up in the building as the...

We had an excellent time at Filippo II, a very clean, well serviced, maybe a little spartan hotel. Wonderful view of the bay, fifty steps from the sea, with a private deck (not a beach) creating a private swimming area. Very large room, with separate living room, bathroom and huge terrace. Friendly service. Not a thrilling place, but excellent value for a quiet stay on the water, in the beautiful Argentario region. Friendly reception.

Room Tip: we had room 27, excellent, very large, separate living room, huge terrace, nice view. highly recomme...

This hotel is a true gem, the hotel staff are extremely friendly and helpful. We checked in on the spur of the moment while driving through Italy and checked Trip Advisor for a good hotel recommendation in the area. We were not disappointed.

Positives
The location is tranquil and very quiet
The suite rooms at the end of the passage have a sitting area and separate bedroom
Balcony is great, it has wooden doors to keep the sun out
Friendly staff that are available 24 hours for anything that is required
Breakfast was actually very good and they had eggs on request

Negatives
The bathrooms are old. They need updating. Worst shower/bath i have ever had. Temperature was difficult to get right and only had a hand held shower in the bath.
You need a car to be able to make the most of the area

Overall I would return to this area year after year and I would stay in this hotel again

Room Tip: Rooms at the end of the corridor seem to be bigger. The sea view rooms are spectacular!

My partner and I stayed there and to be honest was concerned it would be a bit of a miss. However we were so pleasantly surprised and flabbergasted by the serenity and the warm service.
We were pleasantly surprised by an upgrade which was two levels and very comfortable and spacious.
The only downside was the buffet breakfast and distance (which isnt a safe to walk) to town.
For a relaxing weekend would definitely recommend.
