Hotel Best Western Plus Ajaccio Amiraute
Ranked #5 of 28 Hotels in Ajaccio
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 2 July 2014

For the last day of our trip in Corsica, we had booked the BW Amirauté in Ajaccio (June 10 2014) because it was close to the airport and also because of Best Western’s reputation which is generally good.

As we had a car and knew the road to the centre of Ajaccio from when we drove on our arrival’s day from the airport, finding a parking downtown was not a problem. Also, there was a (quite busy) free parking on the hotel’s premises. We had a standard room in the hotel, clean and comfortable. A coffee/tea machine was available but no refrigerator. The reception was handling things in a pragmatic way. Wifi worked without any problem.

The pool is large and clean and the area is relaxing to sit and enjoy if one has nothing else to do. We stayed most of the afternoon on site as we had seen Ajaccio the week before. The next morning we left early to the airport and did not take breakfast in the hotel so cannot judge about its quality. The overall cost of one night is slightly higher than in most of the hotels where we stayed in Corsica.

This Best Western is indeed quite a distance from the city’s centre but there is public transport if one has no car. But even if the airport is not far away, one needs a car or a taxi to get there.
This is a standard Best Western as you will find many around the world.

Found this hotel very comfortable and clean. Nice view to the sea, good quality furniture, lovely bathroom, comfortable bed and also a very good size desk area. There is plenty of space within the rooms. The rooms don't have a fridge. Drinking glasses too were just paper cups. I found the staff were reasonably helpful, not over friendly, and as I arrived in the morning, I was told immediately that I would have to wait till the afternoon to gain access to my room. I have a feeling that this is the rule, and they didn't seem anxious to try and have a room ready a little earlier for me. The Hotel too is a little out of town, and a local bus will take you there but it runs to an irregular timetable and finishes around 1830. I did not take breakfast at the hotel.

Room Tip: You may prefer a room that faces the sea. Many of them do.

This modern, well run hotel was a great place to stay in the busy city of Ajaccio and very well placed for making excursions to other parts of the island nearby. It is thankfully away from the main town which would have been a nightmare to drive through or park in! There are several, trouble free, cheap buses that will take you to the centre instead. Our room had a great view of the bay and was spotless. The addition of a kettle etc was also very welcome. Breakfast was wonderful - excellent coffee machine, great choice and used dishes were frequently cleared away - clean and tidy. The only down side really was the lack of a balcony and the fact that there were no good restaurants within walking distance - the one on site was fine, but uninteresting.

Room Tip: None of the rooms in the main hotel seem to have balconies - upgrade to an apartment if this is impo...

Although this hotel was on the outskirts of Ajaccio the staff more than made up for this. The hotel had an excellent swimming pool and spa. The breakfast was pleasant and the room was always cleaned to perfection. I would like to mention the receptionist Isabelle Oliveri who was not only polite, helpful, and friendly but was also very professional and a great benefit to the hotel.
If you have a car this hotel is in an excellent location and parking is free.
The restaraunt next door to the hotel is also excellent value for money.

However a small tip:one restaraunt to avoid in the area is the Pizzeira Le Grill down on the Marina...its terrible.

Room Tip: The room on the third floor had an excellent view of the sea

We stayed one night in early September. Hotel was fine, if a little unremarkable.

However, I was charged twice for the room and have had terrible customer service since, whilst trying to get a refund.

They only refunded the basic euro amount despite that fact that I was charged significant bank charges, leaving me out of pocket. Given it was not my error in the first place I think this unacceptable.

They never responded to emails regarding this issue and I had to chase a number of times to get the initial refund.

When I spoke to the general customer complaints line they did not want to know, saying I should resolve it with the hotel.

I won't be using Best Western again.

We stayed in a suite which is very comforatble and spatious (all the satndard rooms were booked). Since the hotel was very busy that day (summer holidays), we had to wait until well after noon before we could check-in though. The only drawback of the hotel is that you're still quite far from the centre and you need to take a taxi or car to get to the centre of the city or a decent restaurant/bar. We stayed for one night beacause we had to take a flight the next morning and it took us less than 5 minutes to drive to the airport which was very cocnvenient at 7 am. The Best Western is an excellent choice if you're travlleing to or from the airport.

Room Tip: A suite is a nice option if you can get a good rate

We stayed in the best western for 10 days July/August. We stayed in room 117 which is a standard room. The room was a clean, comfortable room with a nice view of the harbour. There is not much storage space in the room so we lived out of our suitcases, and there is no fridge in the room. There is also no bath, just a shower cubicle which was fine for us.

The pool area was quite nice but overlooked an industrial estate one way and the harbour another. We found the chlorine levels in the pool to be quite high.

The hotel is a 45 minute walk into town, it is a nice walk along the harbour. There is a bus which goes from outside the garage down the road all the way to town. This cost 1€. We found having a car was very handy while staying in Ajaccio.
