This hotel is right in the centre of Ajaccio so is perfectly located for enjoying all that it has to offer. Parking nearby could be tricky but was never an issue for us. The room was large and very clean and the staff always friendly and helpful. We would definitely stay here again if we were to return to Ajaccio.

We stayed half board. Breakfast and dinner are taken across the road in the restaurant. The down side is that dinner has a choice of take it or leave it. However, we enjoyed what we were given on both occasions. On Sundays it is closed so you eat down the road. That was excellent. The hotel staff were very nice... More

Stayed 4 days in a room with a sea view on the third floor. Did not disappoint, very comfortable room and bed. Excellent view of both the citadel and the sea behind it. Very quiet despite various activities, (bonfire, parade etc) going on outside during our visit. Didn’t use hotel services much but the cleaning was good. The location of... More

We stayed here for 3 nights during our trip around Corsica. The hotel is situated in a good location in the city centre near the Citadel, many restaurants, harbor, and walking path along the water and beaches. Our room faced the Citadel. The room was simple, clean, and comfortable. The air condition worked well. We could not get wifi in... More

We stayed here for one night during our roundtrip on Corsica . This hotel has great location as it is centrally placed in Ajaccio close to the citadel. We got a very small room, - with place just for the bed and two chairs. Nothing like the professional pictures from the management. (We had a "double standard ground floor" room.)... More

Nice simple hotel in an excellent location in Ajaccio - just down the road from the market and the restaurant-street. Simple, clean, newly renovated rooms. Friendly nice staff, who were very accommodating in terms of breakfast for our group who had an early checkout. If you have a car, you'll likely need to park in the above-ground or under ground...

Great place to stay as in it's a great location. Ask for a water view. Nice rooms with English speaking concierge. Parking is an issue but street parking is available...keep looking but you must pay for parking.

We had booked a room for one night via booking.com an hour before arrival. The hotel called us back that there was a mistake and the room we had received a confirmation for wasn't available any more. The only room they could offer was one in the basement for a very cheap rate. Tired of looking for an alternative we... More

How do people rate this hotel so well? The rooms look newly renovated, but the lobby/elevator and everything outside the room look totally run down and more like a youth hostel than a hotel, and looks like the last time any work was done to it was in the 80's. The rooms were renovated just for the sake of looking... More

August the 7th, 2014, I forgot the plug of my iPhone in this hotel. I had already left Corsica, when the hotel informed me. Because it is a very small object, I asked the hotel several times if they would be so kind to send it by normal post in a normal envelope to my home. I even offered to... More
