Hotel Le Royal is very nicely situated right in the centre of the old town, with lovely views of the harbour/port from some of the bedrooms. It’s a fairly basic hotel (which is reflected in the prices) – there’s no mini fridge, or satellite tv, but it is clean and comfortable. Our double room was bright and airy in blue, white and yellow and had a double bed, wardrobe (of sorts), two chairs and a flat screen tv on a table. Spare blankets were on the wardrobe, there was a safe (free), an air conditioning unit and a radiator.
The en-suite bathroom was nicely decorated in blue and white, but the shower was fairly rudimentary - as there was no clip on the wall you had to hold the shower head all the time, or keep turning it off and on. Still, once it got going there was plenty of hot water. Towels were .. adequate.
We found the staff on reception to be very pleasant and helpful, and they recommended places to visit and things to do in the area. I don’t think they speak a lot of English, so if you have rudimentary French, that’ll help! We hadn’t booked breakfast, but from what I saw it would be the basic continental – hot drink, juice, a croissant and some bread, jam etc.
There is a restaurant attached to the hotel but we didn’t eat there as there were so many other lovely places to dine in nearby – but coffee outside under the trees was very pleasant, watching the world go by.
If you’re driving whilst in Bonifacio, the hotel does have a secure, private car park – it’s a five minute walk from the hotel itself and you’ll need to know the code that opens the gates – even out of season there was no other parking that I could see, so the fact that there’s a free car park is a big bonus. The hotel website says that the car park is covered, but it isn’t. In season I suspect driving in Bonifacio would be horrendous.
Hotel Le Royal is a great hotel if you want somewhere central, and you’re not looking for luxury.
