Right in the busy restaurant stretch of the old town but surprisingly quiet at night. AC is quiet, bathrooms efficient and beds comfortable. The breakfast that was included is rather basic. All in all a pretty good value for the money.

Our visiting family from overseas wanted to stay close to downtown Ajaccio, and they found this small, cute hotel with rooms large enough to accommodate five people. August is high season and they did have to pay over $200 per night. It would have been half that in low season (January to April). They hardly used taxis during their stay... More

I actually stayed in a very modern, air-conditioned one bedroomed apartment down the street from this hotel for 2 weeks. I had to collect the keys for the apartment from the reception at this hotel BUT I DID NOT STAY at this hotel so this review is for the excellent apartment. I had an early flight which arrived at Ajaccio... More

We arrived at the hotel at night and were welcomed by a nice night watchman. We stayed in a family room of about 20 square meters. The room was clean and very quiet (a view of an alley). The hotel location is perfect, 3 min to the nearest sandy beach and the hotel street is transformed into a nice restaurant... More

Room was simple and basic but spotlessly clean and well maintained. Good value for money and a great location. Would not suit those looking for a luxury holiday but perfect if you're looking for a safe and comfortable base to explore the lovely town of Ajaccio and surrounds. Agree with reviewers who noted that it can be noisy but to... More

The hotel is very reasonable value for money. The room is small but overlooks the citadelle. The bathroom is good. Staff are pleasant. Free street parking outside if you're early enough. Good for a night.

It will cost about 25 euros to get to tue hotel from the airport. It is conveniently located, close to shops and pier but it can get noisy as it is close to the bars. Ask for rooms on the 3rd or 4th floor so you can see through the citadel and have sea view.

This is a nice hotel facing the Ajaccio bay, very close to the old town with many restaurants, bars, and to all the key attractions (such as Bonaparte museum, Musee Fesch, etc.). Hotel is very quiet at night. Staff is very nice and friendly and helpful. Many great restaurants just on the street right next to the hotel. The breakfast... More

We had an excellent room with a great view toward the Citadelle. The (free) wi-fi signal was very weak in our room. Trouble connecting and dropping out. If wi-fi is a "must" when you are choosing your hotel, think carefully before selecting here. We let reception know of this issue and were met with a lack of interest.

The location is good for visiting the port and the old section of the city. The hotel itself is an renovated older building. The rooms are small and the bathroom is also small but OK for two people. We had a view of the citadel but it is through a window so you need to stand at the window to... More
