“poor quality prize ratio”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

The location is ok and the staff is friendly. However, on average, it did not live up to my expectations: internet did not work during my whole stay, the tv worked only sometimes. For this prize, I would have expeted at least that these basic services were properly provided, as stated in the description.

This hotel is close to Ajaccio centertown, but is old and needs serious renovavations. As other travelers have noted, the WIFI doesn't work and the staff will provide imaginative explanations -
If you have a car, choose an hotel along the coast, and do not go there.

We chose this hotel because we booked just before the departure.
The only value is the location close to the center of the town, many restaurants and the sea.
The balcony of the room was full of bees, the room smelled of urine, we asked the reception for a new room and show the problem, but the second room was not absolutely adequate to the price paid.
The room and the WC were dirty, the moquette smelled and the bathroom was not cleaned daily. In the bathroom the light would not turn on.
There was no mini-bar, the wifi did not work.
Breakfast and parking were very expensive.
The hotel needs a great cleaning and renovation as soon as possible.

Clean spacious rooms, friendly staff, nice breakfast, comfy beds. 5 minute walk from the centre of town. Nothing fancy, but at a reasonable price. This hotel is not a bad choice, and I wouldn’t mind coming back.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a sea view - they face away from the street.

- there were no drinks in the minibar, so, no drinks available after 22.00 h
- the relation between price and quality the room ( € 95,00, not including breakfast) was to expensive
- breakfastbuffet was very well compared to French standards and worths the price of € 12,50
- the hotel is pretty well located to the city center
- the terras in front of the hotel is very nice

Recommended - close to town centre, good sized (and clean) rooms and helpful staff. My wife and I are travelling with a baby and a bicycle and the staff were very accommodating for both! Good value for Ajaccio as it seems like a pretty expensive town to get a decent hotel.

We chose this hotel simply because it was the cheapest in Ajaccio in the hight of their summer.

Given its price in comparison to other hotels it was perfect for simply sleeping in. The room was tired but it was clean so we were happy. The reception area of the hotel is so retro its basically become fashionable again.

It's a 10 minute walk from in the centre of town, the staff were lovely and it has a little courtyard at the front. All we needed for one night.

Room Tip: Ask for a room that doesn't face the street
