If you are not a light sleeper than this hotel may be for you. The location and view (of the water) are great; however, it is an old building and the walls are like paper, so you hear everything - for your next door neighbours to the ones walking on the floor above you. Despite the great location, I could... More

We stayed here for a night after arriving quite late off the ferry from Nice. It was about a 10-15 minute walk (with bags) from the ferry port. It is ideally located as it is also only a five minute walk from the bars and cafes around the old port. ]We we given an upgrade to our booking, so were... More

The old-fashioned building has lots of character. It has been updated and made very comfortable with a lift, air-conditioning and wi-fi all provided. We stayed there for two weeks and found the staff friendly and helpful. They gave information about everything a visitor needed to know in Bastia. Our room had a gorgeous view over the sea and the bed... More

This small and historic hotel is situated on the sea front with a quiet road running between the hotel and promenade. The forward facing rooms have marvellous sea views good for watching the frequent ferry activity. Just around the front to the right is the marina with the old town and citadel on the opposing hill top. The ferry and... More

10 minute walk from the ferry with great sea views and located near everything interesting. The staff were very friendly and helpful. We had large rooms overlooking the sea and enjoyed watching the ferries coming in and out of the harbour. The rooms were clean but dated...as were the bathrooms. The lift is tiny and the narrow, steep stairs have... More

We stayed at Posta Vecchia for one night before boarding a ferry to travel to Italy. This tiny hotel was perfectly situated to the ferry terminal and was also in walking distance to a fantastic row of restaurants and shops. Rooms were clean, staff was extremely helpful (even kept a bottle of wine in the fridge for us), and showers... More

Despite some bad reviews we stayed here from the 2nd to the 9th of June. We used it as a base for a motorbike trip through France, Italy and Corsica. Our rooms were clean, beds very comfortable and bathrooms good, staff very helpful and pelite. Plenty of excellent restaurants and bars on the doorstep, Restaurant A, Taverna, Cosy, all within...

The hotel is right by the ferry terminal with stacks of restaurants etc close by. Breakfast was satisfactory given that it is France with some cereals and apple puree on offer together with orage juice

... with an incredible admission ticket. This hotel has little going for it, only its location. Rooms are ridiculously small, the 'bathroom' is a disaster with a harmonica door. Had a room on the boulevard side and it was very noisy. Would never recommend this place to anyone. There are far better deals to be found.

.The only good thing about this "hotel" is that it is near the ferry to catch the early boat. Three star it is not. Does not even come into any star category. Rooms dirty and dark. Everything needs updating. Did not have breakfast. Would not even consider eating there.Lovely restaurants just round the corner. Gentleman on reception was very jolly.
