This is a nice hotel facing the Ajaccio bay, very close to the old town with many restaurants, bars, and to all the key attractions (such as Bonaparte museum, Musee Fesch, etc.). Hotel is very quiet at night. Staff is very nice and friendly and helpful. Many great restaurants just on the street right next to the hotel. The breakfast... More

We had an excellent room with a great view toward the Citadelle. The (free) wi-fi signal was very weak in our room. Trouble connecting and dropping out. If wi-fi is a "must" when you are choosing your hotel, think carefully before selecting here. We let reception know of this issue and were met with a lack of interest.

The location is good for visiting the port and the old section of the city. The hotel itself is an renovated older building. The rooms are small and the bathroom is also small but OK for two people. We had a view of the citadel but it is through a window so you need to stand at the window to... More

My room was spartan, but had a nice view and a comfortable bed. The breakfast was passable. The daytime receptionist at the front desk was unpleasant and difficult to deal with. She definitely tipped my experience of the hotel into negative territory. I would not stay at this hotel again.

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...
