Excellent hotel with very helpful and friendly staff, Thank you!! The hotel is 5min away from Bastia airport but very private. We did not try the local beach as there are few beaches 10min drive away. One is part of a park and another just sandy beach, for Corsica where sandy beaches are not continuous, these were very big. Yes, you need a car for this hotel, but everything you need is there. The restaurant meals were great so was the bar and the pool. Breakfast was very nice as well. We actually came back to the hotel for another night!!! Excellent hotel, I would definitely stay there again. Not complaint but comment. The hotel does not show on gps, before you go take a good look at map to get the location.
Friendly staff and near airport.
Good hotel to sleep the night before an early departure from Bastia airport. But you need a car (may be taxi is also possible). The hotel is in the middle of nowhere, but a restaurant, bar and a pool are there. The hotel name suggests that it is on the beach, but we didn't find any obvious way to the coast --- the hotel is surrounded by lots of small size private properties through which you cannot get through. Going around ~1km by car brings you to the beach.
Great food in the restaurant, nice staff, swimming pool, good draught beer, free Internet. Terrible location (no stores or restaurants around). No place to stay over many days without a car. Some of the staff didn't speak any English at all. Poor and expensive breakfast.
Really, really clean! New furniture. Close to the beach, quiet hotel. Over all: Highly Recommendable! Limited equipment in the room: No fridge, tiny table, only one chair for up to 5persons. Quite far away from everything, only one little super market nearby (1km).
swimming pool, close to the beach (however, the beach is under average compared to other ones in Corsica) strange smell in the bathroom (otherwise very clean)
Too long distance to center - this was not clearly informed in the information on during booking
Big, clean and comfortable room. Hotel is up a fairly steep hill so walking the kilometer to it from town was hot work.
It was clean and quiet. They gave me a wrong airport-bus-timetable, so I missed the bus to the airport!!! Don´t trust the information the reception gives you. The hotel is located on a hill and too far from the center (if you have luggage).
Location of hotel and nice size bathroom
Very clean and comfortable and modern. Well maintained. Good value for the price. I liked the hotel very much. However, most of the staff speak virtually no English. Knowing even just a few words of French is helpful.
Comfort and clean. Good breakfast. Excellent service at the desk. Fair price for the room.
separate Motorbike parking at fair price (4Eur), good breakfast buffet
Bathroom was a PVC room like in ships. or like in cheap hotels.
Location, garage, cleanliness. Room was way too hot because air conditioning was not available for unknown reason (no English speaking person in reception).
The reception staff were extremely helpful and all had some English. The hotel itself was spotlessly clean and comfortable and had very necessary parking (booking essential). We were en route for Corsica and were able to spend 2 nights in the Santa Maria, Best Western Ile Rousse, another excellent hotel.
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!
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.
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
Staff were extremely courteous and friendly and most helpful. The rooms were spacious and comfortable, tastefully furnished with quality finishes. Cleanliness was superb. Access to rooms on higher floor could be problematic for the elderly or physically disabled as there is not elevator and the stairs are somewhat challenging. Internet access was also not available in room.
Good value for the money. Very nicely decorated room. Comfortable (and large) bed. Bathtub. Excellent location, friendly helpful staff. Internet connection not working.
The position is in center of town, very good Air conditioner was really too noisy, impossible to use it, room very little and old with really umcofortable bathroom
Very helpful staff and a sense of welcome. Free Internet access
Traditional style town hotel close to Bastia's main square and old port. Comfortable enough room and reasonably well-equipped for a short stay. Helpful staff. Noise from traffic - a disadvantage of being in the centre of town. The room might be a bit cramped for a couple for more than a weekend stay.
This was our second stay at Hotel Central and we love it. Love the atmosphere, the decore, the staff are always helpful.
good location, friendly, helpful staff, imaginative garden would have been worth paying more for a better room
Very close to ferry, easy to find. A touch of the romantic from the small balcony. The receptionist was very friendly and helpful No elevator, had to carry bags upstairs. The bed was too small for two adults. The price of 70 Euro/night is too high for this basic hotel and without breakfast. Very small room.
Small, cute, friendly hotel with no lift. Central and only street parking. Nice breakfast.
The evening staff were very friendly and it was easy to find after a long day of travelling French breakfasts aren't large but this was not at all generous, and the breakfast staff weren't very helpful
Nice swimmingpool, nice people. no
Location on the road to the Airport. Very large room with balcony. Staff were very unfriendly.
We made the reservation to the hotel according to the photos and location, and we got placed to another building of the hotel, which was not far fronm the original reservation, but they did not have pool, and the comfortness of that building was wuite fair...
beautiful and well kept hotell in a not so beautiful surrounding. We booked late and had fewother options, but we were very satisfied with our stay. Great food, garden and Swimming pool. You will need a car to get around.
We liked the combination of closeness to the airport, where one expects characterless international hotels, with the individual charm and excellent food. No
A welcoming hotel with the atmosphere of a family-run enterprise and yet very efficient. Lovely pool and gardens, pleasant and courteous staff, clean and comfortable, good food. Very convenient for Bastia airport, but without any of the aircraft noise or depressing atmosphere of typical airport hotels. None
Hotel was near to the airport
Very convenient to airport, cute rooms.
Staff was very kind and service was excellent. Better aircondition and possibility to dry clothes and towels.
Friendliness of the staff. The location; a long walk from the town centre, not made clear on the website information.
People and food very very good. The 4 people room was simply huage and an excellent value for money
Free internet available at the reception and a decent breakfast buffet
Nothing It didn't even have an elevator!!!! It was not clean, with old furniture, away from the city center. And much noise!
Very good location, easily accessible by car with parking in front of hotel, nice garden to take breakfeast. Ideal for a short staying after arrival or before departure by ferry. Some rooms even with view on the sea.
The room was damp, cold, dark and the toilet had no seat. We were very disappointed and could not wait to get out of there.
Helpful, friendly staff. Comfortable,clean room, good bathroom. Nice atmosphere.
Reception 24h/24 ; near the citadele and the port Parking moto to be payed extra; hotel quite expensive (but average price for the city of Bastia)
Clean and friendly!
very friendly and helpful staff just a bit noisy in front rooms and farther from the town than expected (a good 30 minutes walk to centre).
Freindly and flexible staff. great location. No dining room
Convenient location, efficient staff Breakfast buffet not great for the price
Good location in Bastia - nice modern hotel with good staff Bathroom not 100% clean but O.K. Shuttle bus in morning was not frequent enough - we had to get a 6am bus (which was then replaced by taxi which we had to wait until 6.30am sitting on our packs - time which we would have rather been in bed!- We had to get up at 5.30am) for a check in time of 8am. Noisy during night with traffic etc.
Very nice and helpfull staff,Sylvie was particularly helpfull and always very pleasant. The front desk staff spoke english and a bit of spanish and were very tolerant of my poor french.I only had their buffet breakfast once and it was quite good. If you are a heavy eater it is worth the 10 € otherwise you can get a lighter breakfast for less just down the street from the hotel. Great location for sightseeing, easy access from the ferry docks. Quiet and safe nieghborhood.Spiral staircase is charming but not great for lugging suitcases. no complaints
I was impressed by the friendly and helpful receptionist (male) who helped to carry my bags to my room and explained where to go in the evening. I was also awoken with a knock on my door. The general decoration was very pleasant and it was helpful to have breakfast ready at 6.30am. The room felt quite small.
The hotel is very nice, clean and confortable. Each room has its own distinctive theme (ours was travelling in a baloon). It is located minutes walk from the railway station and the bus station, 10 minutes walk from the old city.
Very well located for acces to Ferry Terminal and Train Station.
the hotel staff were very pleasant and helpful even though there was a language barrier the room had a bathroom odour
The pool was nice and the room spacious and clean
The friendly and helpful front desk staff It is difficult to understand how this hotel achieved a 3 star rating. No lift, so necessary for us to hump our heavy baggage up a steep iron staircase of 30+ steps (the only access to the bedrooms). Quiet rear room overlooked a scruffy lightwell and carpark with windows staring into our room. The worst bathroom in memory, incredibly narrow with only 36cms between the front of the handbasin and a cold tiled wall. It was necessary to move to the toilet end of this 'corridor' to permit a companion to get to the smallest shower we remember as only access is through the handbasin/wall 36cm gap. Hotel closes 2300hrs, no restaurant . At least the aircon did work.
Excellent location, nice view (we had balcony over a beautiful garden + sea), good location near Bastia (accessible even by foot in less than 20 min or by car in about 10 min to City Center); quiet enough to ralax, nice pool A little more attention to small details regarding furniture (rather old) for a 3-star fairly expensve hotel ... but just a detail, not a deal-breaker anyway!
The hotel is in a beautiful location, room was excellent with a lovely balcony and view over the garden
poor location - without car you cannot go anywhere, swimming pool is small like a bathtube and closed in the evening, poor breakfast for good money
The location is beautiful and the staff very friendly particularly one lovely girl on reception who advised us and organised taxis for us. lovely pool area and an easy taxi ride to the old Port
Lovely hotel with exceptional garden and setting with sea view. Incredible breakfast. Exceptional price/quality Absolutely nothing.
they had a room, I ran through a number of places before I found a room. that was the most important consideration.
i loved the 70's déco!!!! very cool
Cleanliness. Friendliness of staff. View from room. No evening meal available
very nice and comfortable room, beautiful garden, friendly staff no shades for room windows - in the morning you get all the sun in the room.
Very attractive Hotel in peaceful surroundings. Room was spacious, bright, well equipped and with a private terrace. Excellent views from the room/terrace over the gardens and olive trees to the sea beyond. Good base to visit Cap Corse. The shower over the bath was hand held.
The relaxed athmosphere
Nice building, comfortable beds, gentle staff, free internet wifi Walls a little thin, so noisy rooms, you can start hearing the breakfast noises from you room even if it is in the middle of the corridor and the breakfast room is a the end! Not very cured in the details, maybe the realization of the decorations was a little hasty. Anyway a very nice hotel.
The room did not smell too good, the entrence is clean but not more than that, it is a hotel driven by a family.
The hotel was perfect and proprietor and staff very friendly and helpful.
Staff were very friendly; room was clean and a good size. nice quiet location, even that close to the airport noise was not a problem. Aircon could have been better.
The staff, the style of the hotel and the location (very convenient for Bastia airport) No restaurant or bar, nearest one is just across the road though.
Close to airport Very outdated at the Jardins - ask to stay in the Madrague
Exceptionally helpful staff, beautiful setting, clean, comfortable room and pool area, very quiet - the place to go to relax. Quite isolated therefore, would hire a car next time.
Delightful and helpful. Picked me up from the train and on departure dropped me at the airport. Surprisingly quiet and planes hardly noticeable, despite being so close to the airport! (A 3 minute drive). Hotel La Madrague next door had good food and facilities and so no need for a restaurant in Les Jardins. A bar for a nightcap and cool beer by the pool would have been good though! great place, thoroughly recommened. I will go back.
The furnishing and all the pretty things that were arranged in the room, in the restaurant and everywhere in the hotel building. The surrounding area outside the hotel area is not very pleasent, but we should only stay there for one night
It was a great, relaxing holiday hotel. Restaurant by the sea edge is lovely, although the service is very slow. Pool nice, even though they didn't always have towels. Bed had a plastic sheet on which was very uncomfortable until we realised and took it off. The service at the restaurant was really very slow indeed.
Large, quiet rooms overlooking the sea. Nice pool and location. Convenient for Bastia, yet all the feel of being out of the centre and by the sea. We did not have breakfast in the hotel, as we noted previous comments that breakfast was expensive for what it was - and this seemed the case.
Very nice, quiet seaside hotel north of Bastia, Corsica ... about twenty minutes from the airport. Our family celebrated our last night on the island with an afternoon of swimming and an excellent dinner on the patio, overlooking Capri and Elba.
Everything was well organized and there was no level of stress from check in to departure
The views from the rooms are magnificent. The restaurant ajoining the Hotel is also wonderful.
nice hotel, pool, sea, parking.
The position of the rooms which all have wonderful views from balconies overlooking the sea.
Very stylish hotel with its own spirit, original disign and convenient location. All rooms boast seaveiw. Proximity to the sea, a swimming pool and a small beach create relaxing and romantic atmoshere. The only drawback was the absence of a green tea in the bar (though not a great deal especially taking into consideration that we were provided with a kettle of hot water to prepare whatever tea we wanted). Recommended
Fantastic unrivalled seaview from room. Enjoyed watching sunset from balcony. Access to beach from hotel! Breakfast wasn't included in price -expected that for the amount we were paying for the room. Bit of a walk out of Bastia.
confortable room with sea view balcony breakfast not included in room rate
Very close to beach
did not like location near gas station and on the main road - kind of noisy place.
