Hotel Ostella is one of the most luxurious hotels in Bastia it has been recently renovated and enjoys a privileged location for leisure or business stays in Corsica. Guests will appreciate the charm the comfort and the elegance of the 52 rooms with a private balcony offering a wonderful view over the sea or the mountain. Guests will also benefit from the hotel restaurant and the wellness centre with its indoor swimming pool Jacuzzi hammam and massages on request. The nearest beach is only 5 minutes from the hotel and during the high season a bus service runs between the city and the beaches located on the lagoon area. There are numerous activities to enjoy in the vicinity including water sports horse riding and treks on the mountains.
It always helps when there is a lift! The finishings and decor are excellent and there is a good choice at breakfast.
Sadly our our one disappointment was at our greeting at reception and the following morning when the staff were less than generous with explanations and guidance. Hopefully just a one-off as they had had a large wedding to oversee. It is to be hoped that the site behind the hotel is developed soon (a larger carpark?) as at present it detracts from the value somewhat.
Friendly staff. No trouble to change room if not satisfied. Good free beach in 10 min driving. Ok for one night if you driving.It was only one choice.
Situated a bit out of the city. Quite hard to find when coming from south.
Classy, tasteful, international--good views and decent coffee at breakfast
Recently renovated modern rooms, convenient location for starting the holiday. Friendly and efficient reception. Quiet.
The hotel is in a commercial area and not all rooms have a sea view, so this should be requested upon booking.
Nice indoor swimming pool, lots of free parking space
Difficult to find/reach. Although the hotel is strictly non-smoking, smoking is allowed on the terraces of the rooms (there are even ashtrays!). This means that you may end up with a room smelling really smokey!
