“Nice Hotel”
Reviewed 26 August 2014

We have visited the Best Western Calvi hotel in August.
Good hotel, quiet, with a good service - nice swimming pool. Rooms were comfortable but noise protection need to be improved as we heard very well our top and beside neighbors. Breakfast was ok - just be careful with the waps outside. We have not tasted the restaurant.

Dear Sir or Madam the Savelli family and all of our collaborators join me in thanking you for your excellent comment.
We regret that you experienced noise, but our hotel was built in the 70s and this type of building was made entirely of concrete where a faulty soundproofing.
It was a pleasure for us to share with you these five days and hope to have the honor to welcome you again during your next visit to Corsica.

We stayed her for a week, a last minute decision booked through Corsican Places (this company I would rate highly for their customer service).
The room is compact but very cleverly designed and we had a lovely balcony with a decent table and two comfortable chairs. We also had a stunning view over the gardens, the citadel and the sea,very easy on the eye. The pool area is generous, the layout creative and the loungers very comfortable. We ended up spending most of our time here, and feel chilled and relaxed for the experience. The staff here including the famous "Fabio" our shuttle driver into town are without exception friendly a contrast to many in Calvi who seem to exist to extract your Euros as quickly as possible and move on, so different to Sicily which we visited last month.
There are only two negatives, firstly and what stopped a 5 star rating, was the plague of wasps anywhere there was food. You could not risk eating in the lovely outdoor area unless brave, stupid or both. We are talking large volumes, do they not have pest control in Corsica, at home this would have been resolved. To a lesser degree the second opportunity to improve would be the booking system for the hourly shuttle, the vehicle is only a seven seater, the hotel has 50 rooms. We saw mistakes by the reception staff to fellow travellers everyday, including on our last night 8 people with confirmed bookings waiting in town to return to the hotel for a 7 seat bus, in fact on day two we were being driven back to the airport (no luggage), until I questioned the route.
However, don't let this put you off, we are not big fans of Calvi town, but do rate this hotel highly, and would definitely return.

Dear Sir or Madam the Savelli family and all of our collaborators join me in thanking you for your excellent comment.
We are delighted that you enjoyed all our facilities and services. Know that we are working to ensure that our guests' stay as pleasant as possible.
We regret that you had a problem with wasps but the situation of our hotel outside of the city and in a natural environment have this disadvantage. We seek a solution but it seems very difficult to deal with this ...
We remind you that our 'shuttle' service 'is free. It only has 7 seats and requires management of a reservation planning. Some of our guests fail to book and it thus saturating certain times. Please note, we regret that you have suffered the inconvenience.
It was a pleasure for us to share with you this week and hope to have the honor to welcome you again during your next visit to Corsica.

I enjoyed my week long stay here very much. The hotel was spotless and very comfortable. The staff were very friendly and accommodating. Nothing was too much trouble. Breakfast was of a high standard and we enjoyed a very delicious lunch on our arrival. Eating on the terrace and lounging by the pool area was very pleasant indeed. It is nice that the location is a bit further away from the centre of Calvi as it is very peaceful haven and the shuttle runs every hour so getting in and back is no problem if you don't want to walk.
A wonderful stay at a very fine hotel.

Room Tip: A room with a panoramic view.

Just came back from a week long stay at this hotel. We found it a very relaxing place to spend time. The food was good and nothing too much trouble. The staff were very friendly and work extremely hard. I had special dietary requirements and I mentioned this once and without fail I was treated to different appetisers or changes in the meals to suit. It made our stay so relaxing and we left feeling pampered and refreshed. The free mini bus was excellent meaning we didn't need to rent a car to get around to the beach or the port. Highly recommended!

This was our first location on our honeymoon. Fantastic hotel. Great room, service and location. I can just this of one word that describe this Hotel: "FANTASTIC".
The location is around 20 - 30 minutes walk from beach, and 30-40 minutes walk from the Old Town. We rented a car in Ajjaccio and it took around 2,5 hour to drive to Calvi.

We have just come back from this hotel where we found excellent staff and service. Food in the hotel was as good standard as any good restaurant in Calvi. Having breakfast on the terrace by the pool was very pleasant. The shuttle was a great help David and I would like to thank the Savelli family for their warm welcome,

The location of the hotel is great...overlooking Calvi in a peaceful, pleasant setting with a lovely terrace and pool area. The hotel building is not exceptional and not the most stylish establishment to be found. However the cleanliness of the place is exceptional for everything both outside and inside is pristine. The food here is perfectly acceptable with much variety offered at breakfast and the evening meal. Our bedroom was spacious with plenty of storage space and a comfortable bed with immaculate linen, bathrobes and towels. What is exceptional about this place is the staff who are so pleasant, so helpful and so well motivated. Their attentions made our stay relaxing and enjoyable. Thank you everyone...thank you very much!
