Our hotel on the Island of Elba

Not only is Marciana Marina one of the most characteristic tourist resorts on the northern side of the Island of Elba, it is also one of the most popular. The "Gabbiano Azzurro" Hotel is in a quiet and peaceful area only 400 metres from the sea front and the town centre.

Since the hotel is run directly by the owner, the atmosphere is very relaxed, and guests will be welcomed by our kind staff who are always more than happy to help.

Thanks to our Bed & Breakfast formula, guests will be able to make the most of their holiday whether they choose to tour the island and visit the numerous breathtaking beaches or whether they prefer to sit and relax in the hotel garden, where there is also a swimming pool.

Most of the rooms have a terrace; some have a Jacuzzi, and all the rooms have air conditioning, Sat TV and fridge bar. The hotel also has some 1-room, 2-room and 3-room flats, as well as a spacious, completely free car park.

For those who wish, the "Gabbiano Azzurro" Hotel can recommend several restaurants that can be booked directly by our staff at the reception; we can also give you the necessary information concerning scooter and car rental, as well as rubber dinghy and speed boat rental, depending on how you choose to visit the island and discover all its beauty.

At the reception guests can also find out about all the useful facilities if they wish to get to know the island better: taxi services, how to get to the museums in Portoferraio or Napoleon's residences during his exile; an excursion on the Nautilus, the glass bottomed boat, for example, will enable you to view the magnificent sea bed in and near Marciana Marina; by going up the chair lift in Marciana, on the other hand, you can get to the top of Monte Capanne (more than 1000 metres above sea level), the highest peak on the island.

Since the hotel is also the seat of the Island of Elba Ducati Club, motor bikers are granted special discounts; not only that, along with the Arthotel Gabbiano Azzurro Due in Marciana Marina, we promote the important "Island of Elba La Tore Prize for Literature". Federico Moccia, Giorgio Faletti, Andrea Vitali, Fabio Volo, Franco di Mare and Aldo Cazzullo are but some of the writers who have been awarded this prize and who have stayed at the hotel.
