Location was excellent and the was pleny of free parking
Very good service Friendly staff Close to downtown Ajaccio Close to supermarkets Close to the beach (across the road) Good value for money
Parking facilites inadequate although we did find a spot. Beds not very comfortable
The location is great. Right across from a nice beach. It is a bit of a walk to the center of town (20 minutes) but pleasant and I know there is a bus to take. There is a big super market, laundry mat, 2 sandwich shops, cafes, ATM at post office near by. The hotel staff were very nice and helpfull. When I asked about a taxi to the train station, they told me I could take the bus in front of the hotel. Everyone was kind and profession except see my negative statement. Note the breakfast is very expensive (10 euro) but good with meat, chees, fresh fruit cut up in bowls. I think my wife and I spent the same amount on 2-3 cafe au laits and some brioche in the bars near by. But the coffe in air pots upset our stomachs so we went else where after the first day. All and all I would not stay any place else when we come back.
No bidet. No mini fridge so you have to get cold drinks at stores which is not not much of a problem. No safe. Only surprising complaint to excellent staff is that I asked if I could leave some post cards (stamped) for the hotel to mail. The lady directed me to a mail box down the road but I was in a hurry. Minor but irritating since most hotels in Italy and Corsica were happy to take my last minute postcards.
the hotel is located near the old centre of Ajaccio only a few steps away from the local public beach. The road is the only way to the Route de Sanguinaires and the Iles de Sanguinaires which are favorite spots for citizens and tourists. Hence there is a lot of traffic along this road nowadays. A room at the front, the ones with a seaview, suffers from a lot of noise when you want to keep your windows open. On the other hand for those who just want to have a bed and a good french breakfast after a long night on the beach or in the clubs in the neighbourhood, this is quite a nice place to be.
staff were friendly and helpful. Buffet breakfast excellent value for the cost
the location was terrific,and also the staff
the bed was hard
I liked the place of the hotel. Close the the city and close to the beach. In particular also the staff at the hotel reception was very helpful and friendly.
The situation is excellent, just by a beautiful beach and at fifteen minutes walking of the very city centre. Very confortable and the personnel was very kind.
Nice hotel, good location near city center (10 min. walk), average breakfast.
The interior of the rooms is outdated, not really 3 stars worth, free parking near the hotel is possible, but not always easy (very busy)
Good location, friendly staff
In general I do consider that hotels should have breakfast included in room rate
It was very good and very convenient location. The beach is below the hotel is perfect ...
It was a little expensive if you calculate that did not offer breakfast ...
Location - good, very close to the beach and within walking distance from center and restaurants
Lack of fridge in the room - not good for a 3-stars hotel.
Staff is very helpful and speaks English very well. Breakfast was very good. Location of the hotel is also great. The tidy beach is out of the town and just in 1 minute walk. Free parking. (If it is full you can put the car nearby for free, we didn't spend a lot of time to find the free place).
Rooms are a little old. Bathroom wasn't tidy and conditioner didn't work well.
Nice view of the beach front from the balcony.
We liked the adjustable air conditioning and the situation of the hotel, very close to the beach, and a decent walk to the town centre to walk off excess eating. Parking was easy and free.
