The lovely pool, helpful staff. A bar or perhaps light snacks wouldve been useful.
Great location by the sea and the beach. About 10 minutes by car from downtown Ajaccio. View of the sea from the room and empty fridge to store your drinks and food. We enjoyed our stay at the Pinède. A bit old fashioned.
location, large room, friendly staff
Scenary landscape, nice staff and very good cuisine
The view of the sea! Very comfortable bed, fantastic cuisine!
The bed was the biggest bed I've ever seen and the view from the balcony was amazing! Great pool and deck, it was so peaceful it was a most like we had it to ourselves - just wished we could have stayed longer! The only part we did not like was the breakfast, at 25€ each it was v poor. We went down at 9.30 and there was no bread, milk, plates or croissants left, and that was pretty much all ther was anyway. We didn't have it a second time.
The reception staff were charming and welcoming and the breakfast a good choice. Near the station and bus stop for the airport. The flies on the food at the breakfast bar were a bit off-putting! Why could it not be covered?? The heating in the room could have been better organised. When I was there the weather was wet and cold but there was no real warmth. Building noise during the day was irritating.A long way from the Old Town.
The parking is safe and the breakfast is good. In my opinion it is kind of overpriced for a 3* Hotel but then again you don’t have that much choises in Ajaccio.
Clean and smart bathroom. Relative convenience for walking round the city, and accessing from main road. Good tv package. Lack of restaurant, not even coffee machine. No refreshments in room. Noisy, if ventilation preferred, besides main road.
The hotel overlooked the port, was very clean, the beds very comfortable, the rooms quiet and a good size, and it was very close to the main part of the old city as well as the gare routiere and the boats that ply between France and Corsica. Staff were friendly and helpful and it had it's own secure parking (6 euros) although I was able to get good parking in the street nearby. Plenty of cafes and shops nearby for anything you needed. Wifi was also available. Didn't have jug in the room for late night/early morning drink (but this is common in French hotels)
The staff was kind and helpfull. The room was clean and pleasent. In a convenient place in town.
The front desk staff (I arrived at 9PM) were very helpful and aided me with small details like getting bottled water and setting up my internet needs so I could settle in quickly and get some rest. As a general rule, Corsicans are very pleasant and helpful, but the hotel staff had a little extra helpfulness in their attitude and I appreciated it. My room was modern, comfortable and clean. As stated above the location was NOT special, but being near to the rail station and ferry port helped me coming and going. I arrived by rail and departed by ferry and the Mercure was a fairly priced and well situated hotel for my single over-nite, quick in&out needs. I am an American senior traveling for pleasure, but I could also see this was a fair priced international businessman's hotel.
Position near rail station and town and helpful staff. No
Close to city centre and port
The view on the harbor The elevator was broken…
Lovely location overlooking the harbour. Room was basic, but perfectly comfortable - we were just there one night in transit to a cruise. Wonderful buffet breakfast included in price of room with attentive, friendly staff. Fold out bed for third person in room was very meagre. Not comfortable for adult.
Ok hotel, if you don't spend time in it. We spend all our time down town and only slept in hotel. No safe in room, sliding door to baloncy won't lock, hotel staff had little English. No double room after I request one. Got twin instead
Very helpful staff They should offer non-smoking rooms.
We enjoy this hotel even that it was around 20 min to go to centrum. We specially enjoy that our boy (13 year old) had his own room with his own balcony. In our room uit was a smell in the toilet that wasn`t good!
ok, for one nite
We loved our room overlooking the harbour. Great bathroom, clean and tidy and the staff were very patient with us as our French was very bad but they were so nice and tried to accommodate us in every way - breakfast was very adequate for us and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay during the WRC Championships! Thank you for the poster from your front door - it was 'nursed' all the way back to Australia! Loved the hotel but was hard to find when you arrive by bus from the airport but once we got a more credible map of the city from another hotel we found it easy! Don't go by the map from the airport!!
The lady on reception when we arrived was extremely helpful.
Very comfortable and big room; excellent breakfast and friendly staff No bad point in fact, just one thing I didn't appreciate : for me there is no need of a television in the breakfast room.
The hotel staff were friendly and helpful. Traditional continantal breakfast. Beautiful view out of the bedroom It is a fair distance from the ferry and an expensive cab ride, but very close to the airport
The pool is nowhere near as big as the picture on this site suggests, and there is very little room for more than a hndful of people around it, plus it is a good hike just to get to it. Staff didn't seem to be very interested, and our triple was actually two rooms put together with one of the bathrooms unusable due to pending renovations (?) but no indications of that from the staff.
Nice, big rooms Long distance to the city center
Clean and new rooms. Easy to access and uncluttered view. Location is a bit off the main city.
The room was large, clean, and comfortable. Breakfast was ample and excellent. The hotel is a substantial distance from the town of Ajaccio. It's a very long walk. However, travel by cab or by a bus is available and reasonably priced.
The swomming pool. Prices for garage.
The hotel is very nice. Is a little bit far from dowtown, but is too easy to go dowtown. The people qre very nice, it has a wonderful swiming pool. Everything is OK!
Very nice staff. Wonderful breakfast. Great village in the mountain but have to have car to get there and take 20 min by car from Calvi NO
It has a small but relaxing swimming pool. It is a decent although a bit standardized hotel.
We are a family of 4 and had interconnecting rooms. It was really great and spacious. Very clean and had several towels per person. Breakfast : varied and good. Staff was helpful. You cant hear people walking in the corridor. The swimming pool was fairly small but clean however the beach is not far. It is great if you need to catch a flight as the airport is nearby. Overall, it is a bit far from the center but if you have a car or take a taxi, it is not an issue.
Good except for the distance from city centre. The website should not state that the hotel is close to the City Centre. That's quite a stretch. The hotel itself is fine. Staff is responsive and attentive. Breakfast was good.
excellent hotel, very well located for connection to airport. Friendly service.Close to centre of town.
As both my partner & I have only limited French, we particularly appreciated the hotel staff's linguistic skills. We also thought that being able to leave our ( very ) large rucksacks at the hotel reception for an hour or so after checking out, was a very nice gesture.
Great breakfast, friendly man at reception
Very nice breakfast
Super Stone wall rehabilitation (but electric shutter traitement was not efficient) no windows 's cotton ( like in England !! )but we are in a Mediterraneen area : I'm both mediterranean &celtic women too.
Hassle-free and in the middle of the city. Easy walk to bus and train stations.
The equipment was above the average for this kind of hotels. In our room there wasn't the router for the wi-fi and the staff didn't care much about it.
No thrills but professional.
Good central location
location you needed to hold the shower head to have a shower
Very friendly staff, nice room, central location Small room, no parking places nearby
Arrived late, dining room had closed a week earlier, directed to a good resturant. Breakfast fine, hotel closed for the season at midday but we were able to use the pool until 3pm.....all by ourselves.....great.
Breakfast on the Terrace , view. The Bathroom.. no proper shower, Mirror much too low (only one) and no plug. Unfortunately there is no longer a restaurant..
i liked the view from the room as it looked out onto the bay, which was beautiful I got lost trying to find the place. the town that it is in is not on the map but a place with the same spelling but about 1.5h south, in the next bay, is there. I went to the wrong place, had to backtrack. The directions from the hotel should be more clear!
Wonderful views across Ajaccio bay; decent-sized pool Room décor a bit shabby; WiFi not working; breakfast very basic
The surrounding scenery and location. The hotel pool and general decor was very good. There was no bar service, no coffee served after noon. The restaurant was closed except for breakfast. None of this was explained in the booking. We felt the hotel was about to close and consequently the service was very poor. No point in complaining to hotel as I don't speak French.
The seaview is fantastic, but we could not enjoy it. The rooms are in a very old style and need also urgent new furniture. There are many cats in and arround the hotel - you can smell it. To much money for such a hotelroom.
The reception was very welcoming at all times. The views from the rooms magnificent.
Don't like absolutely nothing at this hotel. I've a reservation for 4 nights and I stay only 1 night. Horrible Old hotel, smells bad, tiny rooms, no air conditioning, giant lack of hygiene because they have cats all over de place, including drinking water from the pool
loccation and pool room decor, overall look of hotel
Nearness to Ajjacio - efficiency of staff - good memory - we stayed there twice and general pleasantness While parking was fine in some ways additional parking and advice would be beneficial when two carparks are fully occupied -suggest that staff try to persuade motorcyclists to park better so as to maximise parking for motor cars.Air conditioning ould be a great plus Our Room on second occasion was in attic- second floor - banged my 'ead on a couple of occasions -- no I am not suing the hotel but warning might be helpful
The setting and view was nice and calm, the pool was clean and fresh Two single beds for a double bed. Price seemed a bit steep, but I guess this is market rates for the time of year.
The location is superb - pool overlooking the Med.
wonderful quiet location, small hotel with intimate atmosphere, spacious swimming pool and sunbathing facilities, excellent location for excursions breakfast too basic for the price, no variety from day to day, no fresh fruit; access to sea very rocky, no pier
Nice hotel, but the price is unreasonably high. However, in Corsica all the hotels are expansive :) The personal does not speak English.
The hotel was clean and the staff friendly. It was right on the beach with a nice pool and outside area.
The location on the edge of the sea, and the individual decorative style of the room. The home-made marmalade was divine! The lack of a restaurant.
Very peaceful and relaxing, would have loved to stay longer. No food available except for breakfast
Ideal position for continuing our exploration of Corsica. Finding room was difficult - numbering system not clear. Parking difficult due to steeply sloping site, and parked coach.
nice friendly hotel, good view and very romantic atmosphere
Location , quietness and cleanliness of the room Meal for dinner
I had only a short stay there 2-nights before travelling home. Real corsicanian atmosphere and hospitality. Nice green place, wonderful view from the windows. Spaciuos room, kitchenett, clean new linen and towells. The breakfast good and plenty. It is not a shortcoming of the hotel itself but just to mention: not too easy without your own vehicle, e.g. sea beach ~1 hr by foot (checked!).
I stayed only one night. Arrived very late, however, I was able to contact someone, who guided me with the directions. Most appreciated.
Very friendly staff; very easy to find when driving from Ajaccio airport; located in beautiful surroundings; laid back atmosphere Hotel room (especially the bathroom), although clean, was in great need of maintenance (cracks in the wall, light bulb and wiring hanging out of the wall, wall tiles coming off, etc). Had the impression that nothing was fixed or redecorated since the early 80ies. No mini fridge on room.
Friendly, helpful staff. Clean, comfortable rooms. Lovely swimming pool. Good restaurant. Excellent value for money.
The hotel was fairly basic but the restaurant was excellent. We had the breakfast and dinners every day but one and that was only because we had a day away. Like all hotels, from my wife's point of view, poor lighting and a lack of a mirror in the bedroom for doing the make-up and power points for hair drier etc.
very steep climb to the facilities not for the disabled person
Maybe nice for people who want to stay over there for a short time (1 night) or people who just want spend hollidays at the beach Location far away from everything / Not very typical for Corsica there are so many better places / Expansive (70€/per night) for its place
For those who love the simple half-savage holiday by the sea far away from noisy civilization
Nice hotel; central, good rooms, very helpful staff. Can't say a word against it :-)
Friendly staff, location was good, and rooms were an adequate size No English speaking TV channel, no shower curtain, was a little expensive for the basic facilities provided, and Breakfast charged extra
Staff was extremely helpful and knowledgeable when it came to shopping and restaurant recommendations. Room was extremely small. AC did not work. Areas of the room were in disrepair, especially bathroom. Would not consider this to be a three star hotel.
Easy to find. Parking was not available (at all!) for two expensive motorcycles; the bar was not open - asking for some drinks at reception, we could have beer or wine, no gin and tonic.
We stayed there for one night. The staff was very helpful and flexible, although we missed the first night after missing a ferry from Nice and checked in late on the second day. The rooms were very clean and comfortable.
Parking possible;central position;quiet,clean
Convenient for city centre and port. Just off busy road so fairly quiet.
Although the hotel is nicely situated if you wanna be in the center of ajaccio nothing too special about it. Extremely small room! My husband and I took turns to get ready since we couldn't move at the same time.
We stayed at Ajaccio only one night, we arrived early but they kept our luggage to allow us to walk in the city. Staff were very nice, called for a taxi the following morning. We haven't tried the breakfast but friends told us it was very good. Breakfast not included, for that price it was surprising.
Good location, close to the port and shops. Air conditioned room.
Good location by bay/beach; nice, though not large, swimming pool; pleasant room with character; good, modern bathroom; helpful staff; generally peaceful, relaxing atmosphere Lack of restaurant/cooked food is a problem, given location out of town centre, particularly out of season when local restaurants are limited.
fantastic views and friendly anhelpful staff none
Very attractive outlook over the sea. Good facilities.
Very friendly staff. Very welcoming hotel. Stayed in (infamous) Room 22. Own patio very nice but not sure how this would work with guests in adjacent Room 23. (Understand owner places visitors working for them in this room. Not sure what happens in high season. We saw no-one although room was occupied for two nights.) Breakfast too dear and in rather soulless room. Did not try. Went over road for excellent cheap breakfast (6 euros each) in nearby restaurant (Parc).
Nice setting by the seaside.
The hotel was stylish and very clean. All the staff were polite, friendly and courteous. Lack of service after 22.00 hours. It would have been nice to be able to have coffee on return in the evening. We appreciate that we knew beforehand that dinner was not served.
Very nice hotel, standing on the coastline, but by having its own beach, little garden and terrase with pretty seaview, staying there feel like being far away from town. Simple, but very pleasant room with big bathroom and french window (street view). Free Wi-fi was only in the lobby and on terrase - signal was not enough to catch it in the room.
charming location and room
Comfortable, spacious and efficient and very friendly staff that all speak English very well.
Good reception Having only French TV channels.
The view from the window was spectacular; we had chosen the room with a sea-view. The staff were fantastic; very friendly and helpful. The location was superb; close to a small beach as well as the main stretch of restaurants / cafes. The room was tiny; we were banging off the table as we went around the bed. They probably could remove some of the furniture. The room needed redecorating. I would have said it was more like a 2-star than 3-star, but otherwise was fine.
the view from the hotel room
Very friendly reception, good value breakfast, quiet citadel-side room, useful use of internet. Excellent all-round No
It was clean and very handy to the old part of town and beach which was of interest to us. We had an early flight and had trouble getting out as the front doors were locked and even tough we advised them of an early flight out and were told that reception was manned 24 hours a day
The room had a jug! Next best asset were the women who clean the rooms and the older, but not the younger, reception staff were very helpful. Also, the position of the hotel is excellent for visiting Ajaccio. The hotel was extremely expensivefor what was offered and in very poor condition. It is sinking under its need for refurbishment, Parking nearby is expensive and almost impossible to find ( and this is out-o- season)
The location of the hotel is wonderful. It is in the old district of the city, and there are number of restaurants and cafes nearby. Finding a parking spot can be very difficult.
Very friendly and englishspoken staff, very close to restaurant and shopping areas and close to the city beach (100 m.) Parking house Diamant very nearby - a little expensive (apx 14 Euro/day) - but convinient. A bit noisy outside, garbage containers located close to the hotel, and the garbage truck did start quite early to empty them (apx 05:30). Then the local traffic started apx 07:00 – and even with the window closed, you could not manage to ignore it. The noise reduction between the rooms wasn’t too great either. Air con didn't work.Our bathroom was a little too small, and when you showered there was no shower curtain, and all floor got wet. Lacking hair dryer. One of the rooms dind't have fridge. Breakfast was a little scattered, and even if it was relatively cheap, it was not worth the price of 9 Euro.
Very good location close to the beach and old town. Free internet access.
Staff and location No
geat location on seaside, splendid beach, good restaurant
The big room. As a whole all was pleasant. Only narrow road on coast in this place. The mobile phone did not see a network in this place At hotel restaurant very long you expect a dinner and each dish.
all, this hotel is really good the breakfast is a little bit poor for the price
Large sized rooms Was not as clean as I would have expected. There were some patches on the walls and generally the most disappointing of the 4 hotels we stayed at in Corsica.
The room was very spacious,a lovely view of the garden and sea.There was easy to access the room ,the Hotel itself was small an intimate but you still had the feeling of privacy. The restuarant was actually very good value for money and excellent quality of food. The mini bar fridge did not work very well.
the location, the beach, the room, the bathroom :) breakfast was very little for 8,50 Euro
Nice setting on the beach, large room, balcony overlooking the sea No airconditioning in room, few facilities (restaurant was closed for refurbishment).
Beautiful location, well appointed rooms, excellent adjoining restaurant and bar.Friendly and helpful staff Unreliable hot water supply
