Hotel San Carlu Citadelle
Ranked #7 of 28 Hotels in Ajaccio
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed July 7, 2014

Simple, lovely hotel :) Unfortunately the air con in our room poured water, the staff were very good about this and did what they could considering there were no rooms to be moved to. Overall though this did not affect the visit except to highlight how nice the staff were. Great location and very close to everywhere you need to see in Ajaccio whilst remaining quiet. I would definitely use again

The views of the citadel and the sea alone made our stay very enjoyable. Who needs TV when you can watch goats climb the citadel walls? ;-) Location was perfect as we could walk to every where we wanted to see/go. The room itself, while nothing spectacular, worked very well for us. I appreciated that there was an actual bathtub instead of just a shower.

Located across the street from the Citadel and overlooks the harbour. Staff are very friendly and accommodating..our door lock was broken and within minutes someone was there to fix it. Small restaurant but good evening meal...we were a large group so the morning breakfast room was a tight squeeze but lots of tables indoors and out. Several restaurants and bars within walking distance and the local market was just a short walk and offered wonderful breads, cheese and ham which we bought for picnics while touring. Very nice shopping area with pedestrian traffic only. Great Espresso available in the lobby.

Room Tip: There are stairs at the front of the hotel and dragging luggage was a bit inconvenient.

I arrived in Ajaccio in the early afternoon of October 31st, walked from the railway station to the hotel and was greeted by a most friendly receptionist. Spent the rest of the day wandering around the city and then back to the hotel after dinner. The following morning I checked out after breakfast and was permitted to leave my case in the bagagerie until the ferry left. I then went off to do som gift getting only to discover that it was All Saints day and almost everything was closed. After reviewing the option of spending the day in a bar or on a park bench I returned to the San Carlu and was able to get a room for the day at a very reasonable price. I was then able to walk around the corner and go for a swim knowing that I could have a shower afterwards.
I think my experience shows the level of interest the hotel takes in its guests.

Room Tip: Close to the old city and beautiful beach

good points:
1: the location is great
2: the rooms nice and clean (not high end, but good for the price)
3: the staff is friendly

so-so points:
1: leave the breakfast if not included. you'll find something better for this price!!
2: the rooms are a little bit noisy (for us this was no problem at all)

Conclusion: it's a good choice!

We stayed one night during our holiday in Corsica. The hotel is good, location is excellent within walking distance from the old city. Staff were very friendly. No private parking for hotel guests, but we had no problem finding a parking place nearby.

Location, Location, Location...perfect spot to visit the old town and at the same time we had a gorgeous view of the port and Citadelle from our room. Newly remodeled, you just can't beat it! Thank you!
