The hotel is well situated right on a good spot in the beautifull bay of Porto Corsica. It is a 3 start NN norm hotel with 59 rooms. They have a private parking some 100 meters upwards.
The rooms are mostly situated in the front, however there are 3 rooms that the travellor should avoid or even refuse at any price. Room 109, 209 and 326. The worse is 109 on the first floor with a "prison view" at less that 1 meter from an awfull brick wall against the the montain, avoiding any view and making the room dark. In fact on this place there should never been a room, but it should have been used for other operational purposes, and not to lodge guests..
The room itself was not small, clean and standard with equipment.
The staff (who appeared to be the owners) where everything except friendly. I agree that we should not been in this hotel and that the incomming handling Destination Corse re-lodged us from the Kalliste in the Subrini, however when there is a conflict with another party they should not take their revenge on the guests, which are in fact the first victim!
Another problem independent from the previous is the fact that officially they offer rooms with airconditioning.... but it is only available in the rooms at 19 hours (7pm), by coincidence the time people go to restaurant in Corsica... so it is in practise somewhere between 20h30 and 21hours you can use it. Absolutely non acceptable. Murphy's law perhaps, but we had even a technical problem, which the owner solved... but after a dispute... about the room and their anger with the other parties.
The restaurant does not operate a restaurant, only for breakfast. It is a basic french style breakfast with croissants and french bread, which is ok for French or Belgians, but propably not for anglo-saxons who prefer larges choice.
- positif items:
excellent place in the Porto Marina, perhaps one of the bests. Private parking even when a bit away, it is not a "luxury to be underestimated in the are
Unfriendly staff... and even rude at some points.
Restriction of the airco, just on the moments of the day you need it most! This can even be considered as unfair business.
The backrooms mentionned above should not be proposed to public. (eventually 326 giving a view on the neighbours messy garden)
It is a pity, as the hotel has certainly a positif potential.
