Hotel Restaurant La Pietra
Ranked #9 of 18 Hotels in Ile Rousse
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 5 August 2013

This Hotel is perfectly located for a stop-by when arriving with the evening ferry.
You basically drive off the boat into the hotel's parking.
It is just a 15 min. walk to the pleasant town of Ile Rousse ans a few minutes walk from the Pietra peninsula: beatiiful sunset spot (lighthouse)!

Room Tip: Ask for a room with sea view (the other ones give on the parking lot)

The air con was good, the bed was comfortable, the TV had international channels, the view was fantastic and the location was excellent for the port. It also had a balcony overlooking the sea. My partner complained about the walk to town but it wasn't that far - just that it was very hot.

On the down side, the toilet was very dirty and we had to ask them to clean it for us; when we arrived we were quite early (12ish) and they said we couldn't check in til 3pm but they initially said that there was no room for our bags (when clearly there was).

Decor-wise, the bathroom was very good but the bath was unusually-shaped with the taps at one end and the plug at the other, it was also very deep. There was a little old-fashioned furniture, such as the headboard and the wardrobe.

We stayed for 2 nights, very nice room with same bathroom. Nothing to complain... Nice aircon, view is good and balcony good for some sunbathing. No pool, dark hallway, rest was a-ok. Best thing was the diner. Nice restaurant, with pleassant staff. Good day menus, for good rate. Go there! Breakfast was also the best one we got in Corse. Value for your money!

We've taken about 10 trips to L'Ile Rousse over the years; on the third one we discovered this hotel, and since then, we've never been tempted to stay anywhere else. The location is tops! The hotel is situated on an island that is connected to the town by a dam. A walk into town takes about fifteen minutes, over the dam and then along a lovely seaside promenade.

Going in the other direction, one can follow the road to the top of the small island where the L'Ile Rousse lighthouse is located. From up there, the view over the town is breathtaking, especially in the early morning light. Speaking of views, those having reserved a room with sea view (highly recommended!) are truly in for a treat: the hotel is buil right on the Mediterranean, and from the balcony that each room has, one has a glorious view of it.

The rooms are simple but very clean, and they all have A/C, free WiFi, and comfortable beds. The staff are very friendly and accommodating, and the breakfast buffet is great, though we wish they served real coffee instead of the drip variety.

One caveat: for people who are not very mobile, it may not be the best choice. Most of the rooms are one or two floors up, and there is no elevator. Also, the fifteen minute walk to town is not everyone's cup of tea, even though we enjoy it. Yes, you can take the car into town, but parking is a hassle and driving in town is, too). But for anyone who is reasonably mobile, this just has got to be the best place in L'Ile Rousse. Highly recommended!

By the way, we've just come back from Corsica and stayed at the La Pietra hotel from May 9 through May 12, but the photos we've added are from May 2012. There are more of our photos of L'Ile Rousse and other places in Corsica here: <http://photos.kiechle.com/corsica>.

Everything was excellent, view of the ocean directly from our balcony, we could hear the waves at night when we went to sleep. Excellent location, water view and surrounded by natural environment. Super friendly, smiling staff, very accommodating to our needs. Big variety for the breakfast buffet, delicious! Clean and comfortable rooms. I would go back any day!

Room Tip: can't go wrong with a water side.

I spent 3 lovely nights there. The hotel has a magnificent location, directly facing the sea, and has all the comforts. Rooms are clean, silent and modern. We decided to not having the breakfast there, and definetely is the best choice. The city is full of very good boulangerie where you can have suberb breakfast!

This hotel is right next to where the ferry comes in from mainland France. Our room had a really nice modern bathroom but the rest of the room decor need updating as well. Our view from the balcony overlooking the sea was fantastic
The French staff refused to speak English eventhough they understood what I said as they answered my question given to them in English but since we checked in late and left early and all was prepaid prior to our arrival, we did not need to communicate very much.
This old feud of French hating English and vice versa is getting very boring and old.
