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.
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.
Too long distance to center - this was not clearly informed in the information on during booking
Location, garage, cleanliness. Room was way too hot because air conditioning was not available for unknown reason (no English speaking person in reception).
Big, clean and comfortable room. Hotel is up a fairly steep hill so walking the kilometer to it from town was hot work.
separate Motorbike parking at fair price (4Eur), good breakfast buffet
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).
Comfort and clean. Good breakfast. Excellent service at the desk. Fair price for the room.
Bathroom was a PVC room like in ships. or like in cheap hotels.
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!
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.
Classy, tasteful, international--good views and decent coffee at breakfast
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.
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.
The position is good also if the street is very near and there is a bit of noise. The room is big and not bad. The personal does not care about you if you don't get angry, and the good positioning doesen't giustify the high price.
st Florent is interest, clean and lovely city
its location. I stayed there only one night cannot give more details they gave me back my i.d. after payment. I went around half a day without any document
Main plus - location - very close to town centre/walking distance. Minuses : hotel room standard is does not reflect the pictures presented on the bookings.com website , the fixtures and fittings are dated, rooms rather small, plain unpainted wooden cupboard , no mirror, breakfast v.simple. overall not good value for money. rest of the holiday, stayed at diferent 3 star hotel,- the same price but standard close to 4 star hotel. Sadly do not recommend hotel Santa Maria
The bed was very comfortable and the Air-Con fantastic! The view from the balcony was amazing although it would have been nice to have some seats... a small suggestion. The hotel is really a 2* and not the claimed 3* as the rooms were very dated with cheap furniture and the bathroom needed replacing (broken shower). The hotel was good though but just cost too much for what you get, especially when compared to the Best Westerns which were great in comparison and cheaper.
The location was excellent for harbour/ shops /restaurants & the side balcony had a view of the sea but no balcony seats or even one in the bedroom. Very comfortable bed! 1) Room very cramped with no seating for sitting on balcony. 2)TV was very poor as the picture was unwatchable v fuzzy on all stations.3)The receptionist on arrival & departure was surly & unhelpful although evening staff were very pleasant.
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
This was our second stay at Hotel Central and we love it. Love the atmosphere, the decore, the staff are always helpful.
Small, cute, friendly hotel with no lift. Central and only street parking. Nice breakfast.
good location, friendly, helpful staff, imaginative garden would have been worth paying more for a better room
Very helpful staff and a sense of welcome. Free Internet access
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.
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.
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.
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
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.
Freindly and flexible staff. great location. No dining room
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.
Convenient location, efficient staff Breakfast buffet not great for the price
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 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.
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
People and food very very good. The 4 people room was simply huage and an excellent value for money
Nothing It didn't even have an elevator!!!! It was not clean, with old furniture, away from the city center. And much noise!
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.
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!
Free internet available at the reception and a decent breakfast buffet
Friendliness of the staff. The location; a long walk from the town centre, not made clear on the website information.
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.
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).
Helpful, friendly staff. Comfortable,clean room, good bathroom. Nice atmosphere.
Hotel was near to the airport
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.
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
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
Location on the road to the Airport. Very large room with balcony. Staff were very unfriendly.
Nice swimmingpool, nice people. no
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...
Staff was very kind and service was excellent. Better aircondition and possibility to dry clothes and towels.
Very convenient to airport, cute rooms.
We liked the combination of closeness to the airport, where one expects characterless international hotels, with the individual charm and excellent food. No
