A nice and small Mercure Hotel - good for few Days. From Hotel, it was 15 Minute walk into the Ajaccio Center and 15 Minutes Drive to the Airport. Breakfast was good and nice decorated.
Room had a nice Deccor . Room was calm.
- Free Wifi
We stayed 4 nights, room was is good condition and staff very helpful. There is a coffe maker in the room and a bakery in the next building so you can avoid the high priced breakfast. The walk into town is 20 minutes. Across the road on the marina are a choice of 5 good restaurants, so youu don't have to walk into town to east.
The good thing about this hotel is that is walking distance from the train station and I was able to be assigned a room without reservation (early July). The room was comfortable and silent, even though there was no view. A nice view of the lovely bay is available from the terrace at the top floor, but it's very hot and you can't stay there long. Inside the rooms there is climatization, which is very nice and a modern bathroom with all the amenities. I paid E. 106 for the room and E. 14 for breakfast, so it's not unexpensive... There are no nice restaurants nearby, but right next to the hotel there's an excellent bakery, where in the morning you can purchase freshly baked baguettes as well as sandwiches and drinks, good for the day trips in the area. The Citadel is also walking distance and here you can enjoy the fine sand beach, a quick swim in the bay and a lot of refreshing wind...
everything is ok there. Just i want to mention several things. the buffet breakfast is a little bit expensive 12euro as i remembered correctly. ihat 's the normal situation, because i think the hotel nowadays want to upsell their product by higher price. and there is no telecfommander for central contronlled air air-conditioning, it was raining when i was there. so i need to stay in the room all day along, i cannnot modify the temperature in the room. it's a pity.the last one is the hotel is neither very near from the old city center by walking nor from the bus station direction to city center!
I've been many times in Ajaccio in summer to enjoy the beaches around the city. Since I discovered this hotel I always came back here. Until the 14th of july the price is very good, while afterwards it's high season in Corsica and you will have to pay more. If you travel by car, alone or in couple, you'll love to stay here. We could sleep how much we need, no one bothered us in this business style hotel with carpeted floors. The rooms may be small but very modern, confortable and well equipped. The beautiful beach of Porticcio is 15 minutes far by car. And when we didn't go to the city centre in the evening (the restaurants are very expensive and fresh fish it's not easy to find) we bought some take away food and we ate on the beautiful terrace on the top floor with the view on the harbour. Since 2011 the internet wireless connection is for free into the rooms and in the common areas, what we found a great advantage! the only flaw could be the location: the hotel is placed on a fast flowing road without any charme and to reach the historical centre it takes 15 minutes on foot. But on the other side, we never had problems parking on the street for free, what made our staying cheaper. And next door there is a very good bakery where we bought delicious "pan bagnat"!
The room was very small. Double bed very narrow. No fridge. Minimal storage space. The private garage was "full", and it was difficult to find street parking. It was very expensive for what they offer.
