We followed all instructions and found this hotel quite easily in the end. There is no parking nearby, but this is not really a problem as one walks everywhere in Calvi. The first room we were given had a drainage problem in the shower, but within 10 minutes of reporting this, we were moved to a huge suite on the... More

I cannot understand why this hotel has 4 stars!(perhaps because it has a lift?) The view from the rooms are excellent,but only if you have a room looking east.All other rooms look at roofs or chimney pots but the worst feature was the lack of facilities in the room.No mirror,no proper chair,neither bed-side light worked-one was fixed after we complained...

We found this hotel by knocking on the door because we loved the look of the place. Very central - excellent value for money. The staff were so friendly and extremely helpful. Philip who is on the night shift speaks perfect English!! The rooms are clean and everything you need when there is so much to do during the day.... More

Wasn't sure what to expect with this hotel, especially with so few recent reviews, but we were absolutely thrilled! We had a wonderful room with the most spectacular balcony and view. The whole room was very spacious and well decorated with a lovely bathroom. We could have spent the whole trip just sat on the balcony! The staff were great,... More

Having had a mix up with our booking at another hotel, we were redirected to Hotel Balanea. Our accommodation was on the 5th floor in the "suite prive". This comprises a sitting room area, large bedroom , bedroom and LARGE balcony with views over the harbour and beyond. The views were exceptional. Breakfast was served to us on our balcony... More

We stayed in balanea in the high season month of august. You hardly find a better located hotel than the balanea. But you have to put up with the rooms. They are small and noisy. All in all, for one night ok.

Had room at fifth floor with sea view. Elevator goes to fourth floor, stairs to fifth. Private terraces are divided with approx 1.5 meter tall wall, so not super private. Wifi connection unreliable at fifth floor. No pool, but city beach a few minutes walk away. Good centrale location. Service ok. Not best value for money, but ok.

We booked three rooms last Saturday night and looked forward to experiencing the so-called design hotel. What a joke. While the view is indeed rather impressive the rooms leave a lot to be desired especially for €180 a night. Frankly it's a rip-off. We spent between €150 and €180 per night during our stay in Corsica and this hotel came... More
