Great central location in Ajaccio, and overall a good hotel for the price. Room clean and comfortable, newly refurbished I think. Breakfast good also. Sadly no a/c, but fan in room a god-send. Take ear plugs though as you'll need the window open at night and it's a bit noisy of you're facing the road.

We were given a hot, cramped triple room. This was a double room at best - with a tiny bathroom, overlooking a building site. We had two fans running the whole time as the heat was unbearable August) but our complaints were met with a shrug from the receptionist. Parking is impossible! Location is excellent - but sleeping in this... More

Where does one start? With the air conditioner that was literally in pieces on the floor of my room upon arrival, and the hotel declined to change the room, have someone check on it, or offer to reduce the price? (this is August in the Mediterranean. Thanks alot.) Or the confusing check-in system on arrival that befuddled me, as well... More

We stayed here one night, arriving at Corsica, preparring for our GR20 trip. The room we got was small, noisy, but clean. Small shower. The breakfast buffet was good. There is no lobby or outside terrace where you got sit or relax.

Ended up here late one evening, after a lovely bus driver took pity on us for not having a hotel (much needed after finishing the GR20!). Greeted by a very welcoming receptionist who organised scooter hire for us too. Rooms are basic but are clean and have everything you need. There is an included buffet breakfast, which also has fresh... More

Our twin-bed room on the fourth floor of the annex was small but adequate and, as it looked out over an inactive building site, it was very quiet. There was a small balcony which we didn’t use as pigeons had been there en masse before us and were still hovering! The furniture is a little tired but the room and... More

La toilet pue. Le patron est cholerique. C'est pas cher mais ca ne vaux pas le coup. A eviter a tous pris. Don't come here. The owner is a choleric and the hotel is terribly run down. Our problem was a bad smell in the toilet. Guess what the reaction of the owner was? He threatened to kick us out.

Susan, 22 July 2013 Rude staff, no concept of customer service. We arrived at 8.30 pm, there was no receptionist and the entry code we had didnt work. The night porter yelled at us. He had bad b.o. too which we enjoyed on the very cramped lift. Our room (101, avoid it) was small and dark with a bad smell... More

The Kalliste certainly has had mixed reviews. You just need to note that it is essentially what in Spain is known as a 'hostal': just small functional rooms with no public 'hotel' areas or facilities. 'Reception' is in the car-bike rental office a couple of doors away; friendly and helpful staff. We liked the Kalliste a lot. The room was... More

My husband and I stayed at Kalliste and couldn't have chosen a better place to stay.Very average hotel. Excellent location in the heart of Ajaccio, close to train and bus station. Good connection to the airport (direct bus). Very friendly and helpful staff. We received first class service from the moment we arrived. Fresh and tasty breakfast served between 6.30... More
