This is a brand new (Spring 2013) IBIS Budget hotel on the edge of Ajaccio, about 10 minutes drive from the airport. The concept is a sort of reasonably sized capsule hotel. All the rooms have the same minimalist Scandinavian design with just enough space. The overall impression is cool, modern and functional.
It is exceptional value - EUR 80 for a double room excluding breakfast. We arrived late into Ajaccio Airport so this was a convenient and relatively cheap way to start the holiday.
The location is uninspiring with views over a building site and car park. It is out of the city in an industrial estate. You need a car to reach it and even then it's not easy to find.
Breakfast is a buffet. The hotel was full and they simply could not cope at breakfast. There was nowhere to sit, the food and coffee/tea ran out as soon as it was replenished. It was chaos. I have experienced the same at other IBIS hotels. At least it was cheap (EUR 8)
In summary, great value and perfect for a one night stopover. I would not recommend for a longer stay.
