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

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.

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
