Reviewed September 2, 2013

We stayed at the Bel Horizon the night before starting the GR20. The rooms are perfectly adequate for the price you pay. The land lady was polite, the room clean, the location central - 2 mins from the start of the trail.

Calenzana itself is lovely. A great starting point for the GR20

Dear GR20 hikers,
Do not ever consider to either start or finalize your superb tour at this ultimately unhospitable place. It will remain a dark stain in your memory, as it will in ours. There was no appreciation whatsoever of our exhaustion and victorious mood after a 9 day hike, we were urged to please leave building as hikers were generally unwelcome - despite a reservation made months prior. If we really insisted to stay (as we did, longing for a hot shower) then all luggage and shoes should be left -unattended- in a dirty basement. The shower was ok, but our 2 rooms were mediocre - hardly worth 100€.
The GR refuge at the edge of the village is a much more preferable place to stay, as we found out later, even though internet reservations may be cumbersome.

We arrived at the Bel Horizon after walking the GR20, and looking forward to a hot showers and a proper bed. However upon arriving the landlady went mental yelling that she was not a hostel and that she normally didn't accept hikers. After that she forced us to leave our backpacks in her bacement and kept on mumbling about how she was not a hostel, that she had to think about her reputation etc etc.
By the looks of the hotel it seems like a nice 3-4 star hotel however you will be hugely disappointed once you get to the rooms. The furniture is old, the beds are, well worse than in the huts you will find on the GR20, in the Corsican mountains, you do not have your own restroom and we found some of the plumbing leaking. It was quite frankly the worst hotel I have ever stayed. Which says quite a lot.

The "Bel Horizon" in Calenzana, Corsica, seems to be a good place to start the GR 20 (Grande Randonnée 20, a hike across the corsican mountains): it is located in the center of the beautiful village, not far from the starting point, it looks basic, but then is cheap.
Even though there's much in favour of the "Bel Horizon" at first sight, I advise you to think twice. We were welcomed by the landlord who was polite, but the landlady behaved in a rude way that made us feel not like guests, but like walking wallets.
But much worse was the condition of the bed. The sheets looked clean, but obviously there was a problem with the mattress, as we fell victim to bedbugs. Of course we told the proprietors about this but they refused to give the money back end even didn't say sorry.
