“Old but nice”
Reviewed July 11, 2014

Clean, Nice staff and good location, but old. paid 115eur and well Worth it for 1 night and breakfast. Brasserie a little bit expensive. Nice view over sea. Easy to find, parking very expensive. Perfect for children

I'm not sure if you actually get a great value for money. But location is perfect, and the rooms are decent. - very old though, and an upgrade needed!
Bus from airport stop at the hotel.

To stay at the Radisson Blu Caledonien gives you value for the Money, and you are staying just Close to the Fish markets and many restaurants nearby.A friendly staff. The breakfest at this hotel could not be better, and the rooms are all Nice and cleaned very well.

If you stay here, request the "new" front section. Rear section is extremely outdated, ice machines broken and heat does not work well. Breakfast is pretty good. Location is excellent, many nice restaurants close by.

Room Tip: Ask for new section in the front of hotel.

Excellent location for business with the local area, Out of the choices available its excellent value for money, clean rooms, speedy wifi. my only qualm was the size of the beds. The reception staff were very helpful when i was trying to arrange taxi's etc so don't worry about asking for a little help.
