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

Dear client, you have to understand that there is a strike since 3 months: we didn't receive anything from the post office! We can't do anything before the strike ends! It is not a after sale service (clients before you had already forgot something in their room and we always send it back but for the moment we can't!) .... More

Very nice hotel, convenient location and the "demi pension": breakfast and dinner included. The dinner is really good. You sit outside at the bistrot San Carlu. Very good food. Location is perfect. No parking... a bit annoying, The only negative point is breakfast. They serve cheap frozen pastries, the coffee is not good and the choice is very limited. Too... More

The hotel is nice and clean, with friendly and helpful staff. Breakfast has plenty of dishes and is served in a small restaurant across the street. The view from the rooms on the second floor and higher, facing the old citadel and the Mediterranian, is excellent. Two blocks away is the heart of the city, and two blocks towards the... More

Simple, lovely hotel :) Unfortunately the air con in our room poured water, the staff were very good about this and did what they could considering there were no rooms to be moved to. Overall though this did not affect the visit except to highlight how nice the staff were. Great location and very close to everywhere you need to... More

The views of the citadel and the sea alone made our stay very enjoyable. Who needs TV when you can watch goats climb the citadel walls? ;-) Location was perfect as we could walk to every where we wanted to see/go. The room itself, while nothing spectacular, worked very well for us. I appreciated that there was an actual bathtub... More

Located across the street from the Citadel and overlooks the harbour. Staff are very friendly and accommodating..our door lock was broken and within minutes someone was there to fix it. Small restaurant but good evening meal...we were a large group so the morning breakfast room was a tight squeeze but lots of tables indoors and out. Several restaurants and bars... More

I turned up late at this hotel, without a booking, and I wanted to be as centrally located as possible at a decent price. I was offered a room with a view of the Citadel, but I said I could live without the view, and was offered a slightly cheaper room. I was surprised at how spacious the room was,... More
