Les Arbousiers
Ranked #27 of 30 Hotels in Calvi
Reviewed 17 July 2013

Excellent location walking distance to the town, supermarket round the corner, beach at end of street, rooms very clean and airy, nice bathroom, plenty of hot water,.A family run Hotel I'd say, very friendly and helpful, left our bags after check out and returned much later- all good. If arriving by train ask the Train conductor to let you off at LIDO station, only a 5 min walk then instead of 15 fr Calvi station

Room Tip: Don't stay room 105 its right opposite a wooden stair case and everyone passes by

Stayed here two nights. The hotel is quite pretty and has really cute interiors- it's definitely a sweet little French hotel. It is about a block back from the beach and it pretty close to restaurants and shops. The port is only 10min away.

There is no Wifi however and both mornings I was woken up by the sound of vacuum cleaners. The floors are polished wood and the sound just travels. Cleaners started at about 7.30 and didn't stop till I eventually dragged myself out of bed.

This has been my second visit to Les Arbousiers. My first visit was exactly nine years ago, also in June. The hotel is excellent value for money!! It is perfectly located, only steps away from the beach as well as the port in Calvi. Therefore, with or without a vehicle, all is doable.
The staff are more than helpful, always friendly, always willing to help. A huge thank you to all.
The rooms are basic,clean, and comfortable. What more do you need?
As this has been my second visit, and I am already planning many more...I can easily say that I recommend les Arbousiers highly.
THANK YOU LES ARBOUSIERS FOR A SECOND MEMORABLE EXPERIENCE. See you all again in the very near future.

When we arrived , we found a traditonal French Hotel, not the plastic, international chain hotels, found almost anywhere in the modern world. The Hotel was clean and the staff very helpfull and friendly, despite a slight language barrier,(entierly on our side). Food was good and the location for the beaches and town were also excellent. Hope to return to Calvi in the future and will be looking to book into this hotel again.

We had a difficult time finding a small hotel, but the people in this town are very kind and helped us. This is a little old-fashioned hotel, which making it a real interesting. Rarely have the opportunity today to stay in a hotel room arranged by hotel standards from the last century. The staff is very friendly, the hotel is near lovely marine and near the beach.

This hotel from the outside belies it's charaterful entrace courtyard and very french/Corsican feel. Family run the staff were excellent and very friendly always helpful.

Rooms are relatively basic but many have been upgraded especially the bathrooms where bathtubs/bidets have been removed and replaced with a modern shower unit.

I am sure when all are refurbished the hotel will offer even better value for money than it already does. I have to say the mattress we had was laughable it had a ridge in the middle and you could roll off the side but I slept a week on it...but expect this to be replaced tout suite!

Buffet breakfast was the real winner...a good array of breads/crossaints/pain au chocolat and jams/butter, boiled eggs/yoghurt/cold meats/cheeses/cereal/fruit coffee and teas give you a great start to the day!

Room Tip: We were in room 8 which looks like it's next on the list for a refurb it had a lovely bacony whi...

We had no advance booking and were happy to have found a hotel which met our needs for a place that was clean, had comfortable double rooms, was close to the beach and yet not too expensive. This hotel, run by a friendly family, met all our requirements.

The hotel has a pretty, somewhat old-style lobby with a covered veranda running along side the front, where one can sit and enjoy a cup of coffee. There are oleanders and hisbiscus in the garden... a nice ambience. Breakfast was not included in the price, but a breakfast buffet was available for 8 euros. The main road is just 50 meters away and there were plenty of restaurants and small cafes offering breakfast and other meals.

The rooms had two twin beds and a small balcony. Be sure to try to get a room facing the inner small parking area rather than the street. The beach is only about 100 meters away, so one can easily walk there. It has a small parking area for visitors with cars which is convenient if you come to Corsica in your own car using the ferry to Calvi. A good place to start one's vacation in Corsica.
