I wouldn't recommend this hotel to anyone who wants a good night sleep. On Sat night 2 July, a cafe/restaurant just a few yards from our room, had a band playing, drums/guitars. Even with the windows closed, the whole room felt like it was shaking. This noise only stopped about 1am. I went to Hotel Reception, the front door was still open at this time (1am)and the noise was dreadful. In the morning, management apologies!

MIS o Rio

Posted Sep 12, 2011 on Hotels
Walked in, took one look at the high windlowless walls, the 1970's furniture, no air con and general lack of soul/character and thought this was not the place holidays are made of. My boyfriend commented it might be acceptable if he was on day release from prison. Told the mono-sylabbic lady on reception we were leaving and her reply "but you've already paid" - says it all really. The town felt very tired and lifeless, had no compulsion to stay so drove to near the port and left Elba for the solace of the mainland.

Very convenient

Friendly staff, convenient location (less than 5 min walk from ferry, beach & food), clean room, decent breakfast. Rio Marina is pretty small and quiet. Good for a nice relaxing stay.

The perfect hotel for Rome

Posted Jun 17, 2010
We chose this hotel based on its cheap price and great reviews, and it definitely fit our expections and then some... We were shocked that a hotel only 10-15 dollars more than the cheapest in the location could get us such a nice room. The bathroom had a jacuzzi, we had a balcony, and a sitting room with an exercise bike, and this was at the cheapest rate offered. Furthermore, the service was very friendly and helpful. They give you a map with all the must-see locations in Rome, and the metro was a 5-minute walk away. A very decent buffett breakfast is also offered on the covered roof of the hotel. Highly reccommended!!

My wife and i stayed two nights at the Hotel Rio in early September. The staff was more than helpfull with any question or request we had and very friendly. the Breakfast was nice and worth money. i have recommended this hotel to friends and will continue to do so. By far a highlight of our trip to Italy.

hotel rio sul mare was easy to locate and right near the ferry. my son and i enjoyed having the children's playground right across the street. also, numerous places to eat that were reasonably priced and tasty. the staff were helpful and responsive to questions and concerns that i had.

Reasonably priced hotel

Posted Jun 22, 2009
I stayed in this hotel with a freind for 4 nights for beach holiday. Room was clean and well maintained. We had a few problems with the shower but once reception was informed they fixed this up by the next day as promised. Breakfast was good although coffee & other food ran out and wasn't replaced very quickly. For a cheap hotel I would reccommend staying here.
