A few hundred yards from the town centre but over the crest of the hill. Necessitates a climb whether you going to or from the ferry terminal or the railway station (we weren't car-borne). For that reason we ordered a taxi to the station when we left, but not value for money at €15! Less than a mile walk to...

We were the first Russian in this hotel. Before the trip, we read the reviews of foreigners. But chose this hotel and not regret it. We liked the location (5 minutes to the citadel, to the city center, 15 minutes to the city beach), friendly staff, cleaning every day, quiet, lovely pool. There is a good conditioner. Near the hotel...

We stayed for a couple of nights and it was spot on for all we needed. The room was basic but very clean, comfy bed and a great view. The pool was great, again clean and not too busy. Staff very friendly and for us parking on site....which in Calvi can be a nightmare! We would stay again.

We stayed at this hotel for a few days. The location was good and we had a pretty nice view from the weird balcony. The service was really bad and the rooms small. Also, in general on Corsica, I really missed having a refrigerator on the room.

"The 2 star feeling" noticed by other travellers is there when you step into the reception on arrival. It is tired and dated and the carpeting (why carpets on staircases and in the corridors??) badly needs replacing - but the receptionist is really very friendly and helpful. Ample tourist information to read. We thought our 2nd storey room was very...

This is a 2 star hotel so it is a given that it is quite simple! "The 2 star feeling" was there when we stepped in to the reception on our arrival. It is very small and tired but the receptionist was very friendly and helpful. This is to us so much more important than glamour and glitter. We were...

This hotel is simple, but good value for money. The location is great, just a few minutes walk from the main street. The hotel has its own pool, clean and with a good size, perfect for relaxing after a long day of sightseeing. The rooms are clean and simple, and if you don't plan to stay too much indoor the...

It's a 2 stars, so don't expect more than this. The quality/price ratio was not great expecially if one includes breakfast which was 7 euros per person, however 3 stars hotels in Calvi were much more expensive, so not too bad for the standards for that area. Pros: the position, on a promontory looking at the Point de la Revellata,...

The hotel is situated very close to the citadelle and to the small centre of the town. Ideal to stay in calvi and you can simply leave your car in the parking as everything is at walking distance It has a nice swimming pool and the rooms are big enough to enjoy a nice weekend. There is also an inside...

On the map it looks out of the way compared to other hotels, but that couldn't be more deceiving. The best part of it is that it is both on the coast (not the port) and easy walking distance to everything you would want in Calvi. If you're coming (or going) by either the Ferry or Train you don't have...
