“Will not be coming back to this place.”
Reviewed August 28, 2012

Disappointing. They claim to have free parking, yet charge you 6 euro a day. They want the ridiculous amount of 12 euros p.p. for breakfast with machine coffee and average food. Wifi does not work in the rooms. Our aircondition was out of order, and although I informed them of such, nothing was done to fix this even though they promised they would. But, the hotel is situated nicely in Ajaccio, we walked to and from the city centre every day. And the room was clean, though somewhat dingy.

We chose the hotel for a one night stay since we arrived Ajaccio late in the evening. The rate for a double room was reasonable but the hotel is worn and shabby. Our room smelled of fresh paint and there were new curtains on the windows but these updates were minor cosmetic changes and did not do much to disguise the condition of the room . The most important thing to me about a hotel is cleanliness and our room was clean. The bed linens were fresh and comfortable. The bathroom was old but functional. The location is convenient to the town center and we appreciated the bakery directly across the street. We had rented a car at the airport and were pleased that the hotel had a small parking lot for 6 euro a day. The hotel served our purposes but I would not have wanted to stay a second night.

Room Tip: We had the room pictured on the discount hotel sites--purple curtains at the window that drag on the...

Easy to find as, rather unusually, there is signposts around the town showing where the hotels are. Out of the centre of town but within easy walking distance of the centre.

Hotel is clean and in a quiet location. Limited parking is available nearby for a small charge.

Room is small but adequate and very clean. Looks like it had just had a lick of paint too as it seemed quite fresh. Best hotel towels I have encountered! No shower as such but a small bath with separate shower head.

Didn't eat in the hotel. Staff all efficient and helpful.

Only thing I didn't like was the noisy air conditioning but it was put-up-withable.

One of the few hotels that were under the hundred euro charge in Ajaccio and it is fine for the price.

We had no complaints - the hotel was clean and had a friendly atmosphere. It is not central, but Ajaccio is not a vast city, and the surroundings were pleasant, and made for a relaxed evening stroll. The "free" wi-fi was a bit temperamental.

Location quiet, out of town centre. Everything about the hotel, outside and inside, is slightly dingy. Room small, furniture basic, bathroom had peeling paint and falling tiles. Like many hotels in Corsica, bathtub with sit down shower only (no curtain or door), which I hate.

The overall stay was ok. Just the bathtube which we found dirty on our arrival. After reporting it to the member of staff ( receptionist) we expected it to be cleaned. Unfortunately it never happened. Complete ignorance...and not even a dash of apologetic attitude.
