Reviewed 21 September 2012

We have just had a weeks stay at the Hotel Cyrnea. We knew when we booked about the walk into Calvi centre so it wasn't a suprise. The rooms are big and the beds comfortable and yes the walls are a bit thin so you can occasionally hear other guests but it is only a 2 star and is therefore cheaper. I do wonder what some people expect when booking a hotel like this. We had a couple of days where it was very windy and the beach was not a viable option so we spent the time around the pool which was absolutely spotless with comfortable loungers. There is a supermarket very near where water etc is available, the beach cafe's can be an expensive option for dining, the town has a lot of restaurants most offering a 3 course menu for 20-22 euros.

Room Tip: Request a room at the back overlooking the mountains as they are away from the road and quieter.

large rooms, clean ,good breakfast. climatized rooms (clima is on demand , extra, but was offered to us even if we stay only 2 nights). owner very helpful to tell us what to visit in the city, and about good beaches all around calvi. we recommend this place. a lot of space where park car & bikes (covered for bikes), Hotel is out of the centre of town, but there is a a very beautiful swimming pool, very clean, well kept, with all amenities to stay at the sun . very near there is a super market . only suggestion could be a small fridge in the rooms.

Stayed a Hotel Cyrnea in June 2012, very enjoyable stay at this family run hotel. The hotel itself is fairly simply, but pleasant and more than served our needs. There is a superb beach just a few minutes walk away. Would recommend hiring a car for at least part of your stay to explore the north of the island. For us an excellent first time visit to beautiful Corsica, we hope to return to Corsica and this hotel!

Our bedroom had bed bugs (confirmed by a doctor inspecting us as well as our own research) which left us covered from head to toe in the most itchy and unsightly red bites which lasted a week or more.
After much letter-writing we eventually got a bit of compensation, but although every other aspect of the hotel was quite nice, I still can't recommend it at all.

I don't understand the majority of reviews here. Were people staying in a different hotel? Has everything changed recently? The staff were largely non-existent, and when they were present we found them quite unhelpful. The rooms had paper thin walls and ceilings meaning that one night we were kept awkae by a girl on her phone until three in the morning, and another night by a couple having sex until six in the morning. The slightest noise can be heard, and it gets very annoying. The rooms were decidedly average, even for a two star, and the cleaning staff didn't even turn up one day, and forgot to leave any toilet paper the next. Overall, definitely not recommended. As a final point, it's also a 20 minute walk into town. Not a problem for some, but worth pointing out as it makes something as simple as popping out for a quick drink more difficult than we would have liked on holiday.

Room Tip: noisy at the front, better at the back but no a/c

Although we weren't expecting much as this is only two-star, there were some real snags with this hotel, in particular the ultra-thin walls between the bedrooms which made privacy as well as untroubled sleep almost impossible. After a few days the dreary breakfast of one croissant and one piece of French bread became tedious. The bedroom and en-suite decor was just about acceptable. On the positive side the pool is pleasant, rooms at the back overlook the mountains (although have no air-conditioning) and the hotel is an easy twenty minute stroll into Calvi along the beach or road.

Room Tip: Rooms at front have airconditioning but road noise, rooms at back a better view but no a/c

I stayed here for 5 nights, and would warmly recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a budget hotel where quality service is clearly a priority. The long walk into town might have been a problem for a stay of this length if the weather hadn't been fine, but I had no problems - the road is flat and well-lit, and I felt perfectly safe walking back from town by myself, even late at night. My room, which was comfortable, quiet and well-appointed, was up several flights of stairs, but hotel reception staff carried my suitcase up for me without being asked. There seemed to be some problem with cleaning staff - my room wasn't serviced one day, and cleaning seemed a bit perfunctory, but this wasn't a major problem for me, as reception staff were so friendly and obliging, and went out of their way to check travel arrangements for me when volcanic ash threatened more disruptions to flights out of Corsica.
As another reviewer mentioned the proximity of Orizonte Novu train station I would just note that it's a 10-15 minute walk from the hotel, part of this over a sandy track, so if you were wheeling a suitcase, it would probably be best to disembark at the main station at Calvi. Also, the train does not appear to stop at Orizonte Novu station during winter months.
