“A nice dowager hotel, convenietly located”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 12, 2006

The Grand Hotel in Calvi Corsica has graced upper Calvi for many years. It is located close to the historical citadel and about two or three street levels above the yacht harbor which is very interesting and which has plenty of shops, sidewalk cafes and restaurants.

Our air conditioned room was charmingly quaint, sunny, very large and quiet. A little updating to the general facilities would make this venerable hotel a bit more appreciated in today's world, but we found everything to be in good condition, clean and comfortable. The hotel staff spoke English and were quite helpful. A top floor restaurant offers panoramic views. We did not dine or have breakfast there so we cannot comment. All floors are served by elevators or lifts. Non hotel arranged car parking can usually be found nearby.

If you want to be in Calvi's scenic historical citadel and harbor area rather than being in an outlying resort area, the Grand Hotel is a good choice, great value and a bit of a experience of hotel grandeur from another age.

We enjoyed it.

  • Liked — Location, quaintness and value
  • Disliked — A bit dated but clean and comfortable
  • Tips/Secrets — Lots of cafes and restaurant in Calvi. Choose carefully to get a great meal.

From the moment we arrived for a 4 night stay at this hotel we were made to feel at home and very welcome.At reception Natalie was glad to see us,listen to our major problems and sort them out most proffessionally.Our room 409 was extremely spacious with two large windows overlooking the harbour and mountains capped in snow in mid june.We chose to eat every day in the panoramic 5th floor restaurant with some of the best views you could wish for,the head waiter Anthoine and his team were professional and friendly.Everybody,staff and visitor seemed to have a spring to their heel all enjoying their stay in this exceptional hotel.We paid 92 euros for a double superior room per night
