The building itself is ugly, but it's situated in a place of intense beauty, with mighty granite peak all around it. The place is popular with day trippers, but its the GR20 hikers who really appreciate it - with its soft beds, simple but newly refurbished rooms, and, most important, a bathtube with unlimited supply of hot water. The hotel's restaurant has an extensive a la carte menu of Corsican specialities, and the food is delicious. If you're on a budget, you can also order a cheaper 3-course set menu. In contrast to gite d'etapes on the GR, this hotel also serves wine that actually comes in a bottle. And breakfast is almost divine, with hot croissants, fresh bread and non-instant coffee!!!
Apart from serving as a gite d'etape for GR hikers, the place is also ideal as a base for several hiking trips in the surrounding moutains.
