“Not your first choice if you're going on vacation”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 15, 2013

So it's an Ibis budget, a chain hotel that looks and feels pretty much the same everywhere you would go. If you're going to Ajaccio for a business trip and you have a car, it can be a good choice.

However, if you're a solo backpack traveler like me or a couple/family without a car, I'd rather try to book somewhere else.

First of all, the hotel is quite far from the center. By foot you have a good 40 minutes of walk to get to the port for instance. Add another 10 minutes to get to the very heart of Ajaccio.
You cannot actually rely on public transport to get there. Line 4 gets you to the hotel every half an hour or every hour on weekends, line 3 stop closely by, but service ends at 7-8 PM. That means that in the evening, when you will be either too tired or tipsy or full or all three, you'll have an hour long walk up a hill.
The area where the hotel is not the best, to be honest it's the ugly side of the town and you might care about that when you're on vacation.

The hotel however is new, very clean, sort of modern but it seriously lacks personality. It feels somehow like one of those new student dormitories. If you're going there for vacation, a more charming Corsican place would certainly leave you with a better memories. Breakfast is good if you appreciate quantity more than quality.

Notice that there are no real bathrooms. A flimsy half transparent glass door separates the room from the modular fibreglass shower, an extra-small sink is placed in the room together with a mirror, and a wooden 'door' hides the closet. Yet you can see and hear everything. When you're travelling alone it's ok, when you are 3 sharing the room it can be quite uncomfortable I suppose.
I had no idea how to use the integrated air conditioning and it the phonic insulation is not great.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

Travelling in the south of Corsica, looking for a hotel close to the main road (we were driving south from Calvi, with awful weather)
Brand new hotel, the room we were in had us as first visitors. furniture new, clean and nice. The care for energy savings is at the most. Our room was on the parking lot, 2nd floor,no problems, not even noise (very few customers though). There is no restaurant in the hotel at the moment (I guess the on going works are meant to add it) but there is a nice place 2 mins walking by.Breakfast is basic, but, at least for the 4 of us, perfect! also chocolat cereals for the kids. Price is absolutely fine. People at the reception desk very nice, accommodating and helpful in case anything is needed.
It's not in the city, but it's rather convenient to reach out of the most important roads, no problems with parking at all.

Room Tip: Our room didn't have a hari dryier and I used mine. I'm pretty sure the Reception could help...
