Please take the ferry to Portoferraio where your hotels are located. As regards the company, if you want to embark your car, it is better to check the prices first: sometimes they are very different one from the other.
If you don’t travel with your own car, you can also take the hydrofoil that takes only 35 minutes from Piombino to Portoferraio.
