Hotel Central
Ranked #11 of 22 Hotels in Bastia
Reviewed 4 September 2012

What a pity! it breaks my heart when I see the potential of a hotel. Central hotel is very well located. a few steps from everything; the port, the city center and all the shops. But here you have a hotel with no elevator, very bad crooked and old staircase, a nightmare for anyone with big luggage, no parking spots and no proper internet either. The rooms which look very "vintage" which is cute need a lot of care, mixing typical with modern IS a good idea otherwise what we are left with is a feeling of gloom. The bathroom are minuscule with old shower curtains. No this hotel needs a few changes and it would be fantastic because it does have that french charm. They were very friendly and helpful, always a great plus there. Breakfast is not included in price - bad mistake. All in all, the way this hotel is, I sadly wouldn't stay there again.

An old luxury hotel in the city center with reasonable prices. It is very comfortable, clean and well maintained but seems to be traveling 60 years ago as it is furbished as it was in the past. Recommended place to stay at least for one night.

Room Tip: We have found a superior double room for the same price of a normal one on internet.

This hotel has real style, the rooms are beautifully presented and spotlessly clean and comfy. The staff were extremely helpful and friendly and happy to offer advice about the town. The location is handy - obviously central - good for the port and the sights. The breakfast was delicious and served in the lovely courtyard garden. There was a bit of noise from the bustling streets outside, but this added to the general ambience of this lovely hotel in this great little town.

We stayed at hotel Central for just one night. It was easy to find, parking no problem, staff really nice. Our room was lovely and very clean, with a charming old-style bathroom and a comfortable bed. We slept like babies since our room went into the quiet courtyard. Not cheap, but good value. They serve breakfast, but the boulangerie à coté is a tempting (and cheap) alternative...

This was one of the best hotels I stayed in during quite a long trip around Corsica. They were full, it being a Saturday night, so I had to take the last remaining room, a top floor suite, but (even though I didn't use the cooking facilities), I loved the beautifully decorated, very stylish room - high ceilings, large bed, lovely big windows looking out over the streets of Bastia. The room was no more expensive than some much smaller (and more functional) rooms I stayed at elsewhere in Corsica. The reception staff were truly excellent: welcoming, efficient, and generous with their time. I see now the comments about parking - I had a different problem, that they could not accommodate my bicycle (!), but they were clear about this when I called, and I was able to leave it overnight at the railway station.

The Hotel Central is well located and the staff are friendly but it could be so much better with a little updating. Our room was big and comfortable but a little depressing with its old and battered decoration. Some new paint/wallpaper to brighten it up would turn it from one we might recommend to one we actually would recommend
