Ahhh, good old Hotel du Nord, in Corte, Corsica!
We traveled as a family of 4 and wanted to stay in the mountains for few days. Our main aim in Corsica was to have a beach holiday and to explore. Corte was a super find for us and we enjoyed every second we stayed in this hotel as well as in Corte in general.
This is and old hotel and far far far from Marriott, Hilton or Radisson chain. This is a unique Corsican town with this one of a kind hotel, that has no ground floor, no lifts but a staircase only to get to second floor while passing a historic cote of arms of the city.
We had to park in front to download then move the car nearby free car park on the main road. We knew about this before hand and this was cool, as the parking was only 75 meters away and free.
We were booked half board , only to discover that the hotel had no café or restaurant to dine in. this worked out well for us hence our breakfast was in a café downstairs, under our rooms and the dinner was in a trendy cool place to the side of the hotel. The food in both place was good, but the restaurant was superb. The cooking was top class and worthy several medals.
The room and very nice and overlooking main road. This is a true 2** hotel with no pretends. May be wee bit expensive for what it is, but it’s in a lovely little town and the citadel is 200 meters away.
If planning to stay in Corte, do consider this joint, as it’s not bad for few days stay. Have a look at photos, this hotel has some serious artwork hanging on their walls, but the one over the bed was missing, I wonder why? :-) see the photos. May be we had children with us, that's why it was removed?
Our room was very clean and we certainly didn't see any bugs, unlike the previous reviewer. The staff, well, a guy at the reception, was very helpful, spoke English and generally nice.
