    Better than pictures, better than the best comments on Booking, including this one. This hotel is just amazing. Surrounded by charming green mountains and providing a superb view on Portoferraio, this hotel has offered us a romantic, exotic and fantastic stay. Sufficient to say that you have the same panorama as what Napoleon did in 1814, as his summer house is located just 300 m away (5 min walk) : a visit is really worth it and will take you around 45 min. The bus station (line 1) is 150 m away. The bus gets there every hour : 07:15 (first one), 08:15, 09:15, ...19:15 (last one). The room has a rustic style and is very very very clean. The bathroom is smart and comfortable. The garden is just awesome. Finally, the owner and his wife are very kind and lovely. My wife and I unreservedly recommend Il Camineto to you. As far as we're concerned, we will glad to come back. Thank you!

    A pleasant, simple stay when you visit Elba Island.

    No air conditioning. It wasn't necessary during the night when we stayed in July, but in the morning the sun hit our door - window and the room temperature rose very fast. A bit overrated in terms of price (but it was peack season). Breakfast was good but quite basic.

    Simple and quiet place, although it lacks a bit of intimacy (all the rooms share the same courtyard). Very pleasant temperature during summer thanks to the location on the top of a hill. Very close to the villa where Napoleon stayed during his exhile, which has become a museum. Nice to visit. Pleasant swimming pool.

    Last bus from Portoferraio leaves at 7.00 pm to go back to hotel, only option then is a taxi.

    Located approximately 300 metres from Napoleon's summer residence. Bus stop is on the opposite side of the road to the hotel. Restaurant is excellent. Meals are among the best we have had in Italy and good value for money. Considering you are on an Island, the internet connection was very good.

    Balcony was small, woken by children frequently due to hotel layout. No air-con but was 37 degrees whilst we were there which is unusual for time of year.

    Friendly staff, great pool, restaurant food good, only 10 minute drive to port, fridge, room size great, easy parking

    quiet pool.

    rooms a little on the small side. Balcony too small- only room for one chair. The restaurant and bar closed after meals so no-where to get a drink which would be nice if you spent the day round the pool.

    quiet pool. Handy for the port. Beautifully maintained gardens

    Beautiful location in countryside, but near enough to town for eating in evenings. Very good value for money. Nice swimming pool in lovely garden.
