We were just spending one nite here before our morning flight out. Hotel is only 5 minutes from the airport. There is a restaurant next door with 10% discount for hotel guests. We did not eat there. Bed Western was a great choice for us. Large comfortable hotel room, 3X

We stayed two nights in a hotel room in the main building. Nothing negative to say! The room was pretty new and well equipped, enough power outlets to charge all your mobile toys, a fridge, and a very nice bathroom with a big sliding door to the shower. Yes, this hotel is not in

This is a really good hotel/apartment if you don't mind a bit of a walk into town. If you do mind then don't stay here as your eating out choices are very limited. The walk is a good half an hour so approx. 1.5 to 2 miles. Top tip is get a train timetable and wait at Les

For a four star hotel the staff is surprisingly ignorant about activities for tourists to do. We have traveled through Asia, Europe and the Middle East and found that nearly all four and five star hotels have a full or part time concierge. We finally were directed by to go to

Response from SASCPH, Manager at Hôtel Best Western Plus Ajaccio Amiraute
Responded Aug 8, 2018
Dear Mr. and Mrs. Ramirez, Thank you for your letter regarding your recent stay. I am disappointed to hear that you had such a dissatisfying experience and will try to address all of your concerns : - Concierge : Indeed, we do not have a full or part time concierge, most of our team members are locals and have good knowledge of the area. I am sorry that the person you spoke to was unable to give you satisfaction, we will review this point internally. We do however have an « E-concierge », a computer which offers guest activitiy information through a touch screen. It is located next to the reception desk. This is a standard in all Best Western hotels. - Tourism Office/Taxi stand/Public Toilets : We will forward your observations to the city of Ajaccio and the local Taxi companies, as this falls under their purview. - Washcloths : I believe this is an issue of translation/cultural difference. A washcloth translates to a "gant de toilette" in French. However, while the two words are equivalent in terms of language, the items are not identical. A French "gant de toilette" is a terry cloth glove with a small loop sewn on. An American washcloth is a small square of terry cloth. I will order a few of the American style washcloths, should American travelers wish to have those in future. While I have lived in the United States extensively and understand the difference between the two, my staff does not, as they are primarily Corsican (French.) For them a washcloth is simply an english word for "gant de toilette." - Liquid Soap : I am sorry that you did not enjoy the toiletries we provided. The reason for the liquid soap is an environmental one. We are an "ecolabel" hotel, the only one in Corsica and as such we avoid single use items, such as small soap bars, however, for guests who prefer this type of soap, we have them on request at the reception desk. - Closet Size : This is an issue we are looking into, as we do feel 30" is on the small side. For now, we do offer larger rooms with larger closets. It is a shame you did not make this concern known to us at the beginning of your stay, as we could have looked into changing your room. We are in plans to redesign the 30" closets in the year ahead, in rooms such as the one you occupied. I will note your suggestion to add more drawers. - Pool Accessibility : Indeed there are no ladders in our pool, as it is a shallow one. I will forward your recommendation to our development team. I will suggest a ladder, or perhaps two ramps where the stairs lead down, one on each side. - Fire Alarm : The fire alarm was deliberately pulled by a guest at 4am on July 24th in the hallways on the fourth floor of the hotel. For this I am truly sorry. French hotel fire alarms are designed with the specification that they must ring a full five minutes before the system allows anyone to turn it off. This is a safety feature and one that has no work-around. Our employees indeed had trouble turning it off, because of the location from which the alarm was set off. They inadvertently set it off a second time, whilst trying to shut it down. Indeed, in their scramble to turn it off, they failed to update the guests as to the cause of the alarm going off. While the alarm was not the direct fault of the hotel, it did interrupt your sleep, and for this I am offering to refund you the cost of that night. Thank you again for your letter and its constructive comments. Should you return to Ajaccio, please let me know and I will be only too happy to oversee your stay in the hopes that it will be a more satisfying one. Yours sincerely, Mr. Stephane Mozziconacci

This is a strange place - lovely reception staff, nice room, decent enough pool, safe secure parking and easy access (via public transport) into main town. All good. Then you try to use the bar - once you have managed to get the bar tender off his phone (we were there for four

Is this close to the beach? Is the beach nice for swimming with children?
We didn't go to the beach near the hotel which was the other side of a busy dual carriageway. We drove through Ajaccio (about 5/10 minute drive) and out along the coast to Goelands beach (another 20 mins or so) where there was a great café, bar and restaurant with sun beds and umbrellas, lovely clear water in a smallish bay with safe swimming and walking access to a few more nice beaches back towards Ajaccio. We hired a car at the airport and were lucky to get a 7 seater from a local company after trying all the big names. Best to reserve ahead. Turned out great as taxis are expensive and we drove south along the coast and through the mountains to visit bonifacio for a wonderful day out with a boat trip to the local caves set in the cliffs.

"We had a good view on the second floor in 3202, I think those further to the left as you look at the block, would be less good."
"Choose one closer town for the money"
"The block with room numbers starting with a 2 have the best views"
"3rd floor corner apartment was quiet with good views"
"the apartments are different in size as are the balconies. we stayed at 3305 with a big balcony to the east ,"
