I stayed at this hotel together with my friend for a week. We shared a double room (two single beds pushed together) in 7th floor with a nice view of the ocean. The windows where big and could be slided open. There was a mechanical thingy outside which could shut out the sun completely. The air-condition worked perfectly which was crucial in the heat. The room was spacious with enough room to hang up our clothes in the closet. There was no refrigerator in the room, but we could keep our food in refrigerated closets in the breakfast area which we could use 24/7. The bathroom was the best! It looked like it was quite new. Enough room in the shower, enough space to put your stuff by the sink. I missed more hooks though to hang wet clothes, but other wise really great!
The cleaning was very good. Each day, when we came back after our beachvisits, all the sand we had brought with us the day before was gone and there were fresh towels and a clean bed and bathroom.
The breakfast was ok. Baguettes, croissants, muffins, ham, honey, different types of jam, coffee, juice. Yeah, not the greatest, but it was enough for us. Costs 12 euro pr person pr day though.
The receptionists where polite, but did not understand english very well. They just smiled and said yes to everything, but we managed the language barrier quite well. There was one lady, with dark curly long hair, in particular who stood out. She was always helpful and very service minded. The one thing that body language couldn’t fix was the wifi. They said they had wifi all over the hotel, but apparently the passwords were different each time we asked. We tried to log on, but eventually we just logged on to the network called «orange» and payed 20 euros for 30 days of limitless wifi across the city.
We reserved Albions parking for a couple of days. It costs 6 euro per day. You get the key in the reception to open the gate, but rememberer to reserve parking some days in advance! By the way, Europcar lies just about 400 meters down the street from the hotel. Remember to get a car with gps! There are not many signs in the rural part of Corsica.
There is a bar at the hotel and if you need water in the middle of the night, you can buy 1,5 l bottles as well, just put it on your room.
There is a cozy bakery across the street and a SPAR supermarket further down the street about 400 meters, vis a vis Europcar.
The st. Francis beach lies about 10 min walking distance from the hotel.
Overall, a good 3 stars hotel in the heart of Ajaccio :)
