“Totally Charming, a restaurant that should be Michelin starred, and lovely staff”
Reviewed July 18, 2011

We stumbled on this LOVELY hotel very close to Bonifacio in the south of the island. Acheda Hotel De Charme comprises a converted farm and buildings. The rooms/suites were rustic but very well equipped indeed and a true 4 star standard. The staff are totally charming, the setting gorgeous and the restaurant should be Michelin starred (if it's not already, I didn't check). We did a half-board package with dinner and lucked into one of the best meals I've had in quite some time. Not hip and trendy obviously and if you're expecting a W you'll be horribly disappointed (as apparently some Tripadvisor reviewers were!!) but taken in context, absolutely lovely.
I'm really not quite sure what the negative reviewers on this site though they were getting. If you want somewhere quaint, charming, authentic with great food, you won't be disappointed by the Acheda. Check out the photos on Expedia etc, they're very genuine and a good representation.

Room Tip: The smallest rooms look like they may be ummmm.....cosy. The upgrade is well worthwhile.

Such a lovely hotel but i do agree with the previous comment only if you have a car - which i think you would be crazy to go to Corsica without a car there are so many places to visit which you can only really drive to.

We stayed in a loft style apartment and it was really spacious clean and staff was friendly the only issue was the renovations in the apartment next door (which we were not warned about) so we woke up to drilling every morning otherwise it would have been perfect.

Very helpful staff, good location (if you have a car), clean and specious rooms. Breakfast and dinner on a lovely terasse! Dinner a bit overpriced. You can eat much better in Bonifacio for the same price range.

My husband and I stayed in one of the Cosy Rooms at the Hotel Acheda. The room was delightful - nicely decorated and had all the amenities that we needed. The bed was comfortable and the shower was good.
The setting of the hotel is gorgeous - beautiful gardens. Unfortunately the weather was not kind to us, otherwise it would have been really nice to sit on our little verandah. Staff at the hotel were pleasant.
Breakfast was really good. We had dinner one night in the restaurant, and while it was a ittle expensive (set menu) the food was very good.
The Hotel Acheda is a few kilometres out of Bonfacio and it would be awkward to stay there if you didn't have your own transport.
We really enjoyed our stay at the Hotel Acheda and would recommend it to anybody who wants to stay in a charming small hotel. Bonifacio itself is a stunning town.

Think twice before confirming your reservation, you must pay your visit in advance ! Heads up on the following surprises :
- This may well be the only "4" star hotel next to a camping.
- Expect a "show me the money" attitude from the unprofessional management
- Disappointing service (or lack there of)
- Despite the beautiful website, rooms are small, humid, and dark.
- Overpriced and oversold breakfast (25 euro per person)
We wish we had known all this before we confirmed our reservation.

As a previous reviewer noted, the service was essentially non-existent. The rooms were literally created from an old barn and were dark and cave-like. When i mentioned to the receptionist that the room seemed like a cave, she said it was a "grotto." The bathroom was fairly well done, but the water in the shower was only luke warm. There seemed to be animals wandering around and the location was dismal, located on a national highway next to a campground. There do not seem to be many restaurant choices nearby and the dinner was quite expensive, euro 50 per person for the menu of the day, but the bottled water was euro 8 and wine euro 21 for your basic Corsican white. The menu did not have prices on it, presumably because the restaurant was embarassed by what they were charging. I can't think of any reason to stay here.

We had a lovely stay at this hotel - the last 2 nights of our holiday. The staff were friendly from the start and went out of their way to be helpful when we needed it.
The restaurant was great and despite testing out lots of different restaurants around Corsica on our 2 week holiday our best meals were here at A Cheda. It's small and intimate. The staff do a good job of being friendly and letting you get on with the holiday but incredibly helpful if required.
