A room at the back of the hotel is noisy due to the cobbled street below and pigeons on the opposite roof - go for a sea view at the front. Rooms are basic but functional with bright colours and odd artistic splashes. Bed was comfy , good linen, hot water not much else to comment on. I was only... More

Location is perfect. The room provides the necessary for a night or 2... I recommend asking for the breakfast at the reception level, on the balcony! It was lovely! Had also a 30mn massage "Jambes légères": wonderful

You are paying for the location. The reception & bar area are beautifully decorated if only this continued into the rooms. The 1st room we were in on the 2nd floor had a magnificent view & the bathroom was good however the decor of the bedroom was very tired & dated. We thought that there had been a mix up... More

Let me give you a bullet point rating so you can quickly scan for what you are looking for... • Overall Personal Rating: 9 out of 10. Let me qualify that rating by saying that I was not looking for an all-inclusive "American-style" resort but just a clean, well-located hotel for my kids and me as we were out every... More

Years ago when I first visited Calvi I promised myself I'd one day stay at the Balanea. Eventually I made it ... but I left a little underwhelmed. The huge plus is of course the great location. We 'splashed out' on a room with a balcony overlooking the harbour and it was wonderful to sit out and admire the view... More

The rooms are simple qnd small, but very comfortable, even when the ocean winds are blustery and most of the tourists have fled with the approach of winter. The decor is bright and hip, and the breakfasts satisfying. The staff are warm and welcoming? giving not only restaurant tips but also hiking guidance.

Great large room but, as with so many French hotels, hardly any lighting! Do they think guests don't like to read? This hotel parades as a four star but I'd give it two. Breakfast is terrible with inedible croissants, industrial cheese and meat whereas Corsica has amazing goat and ewe cheese and charcuterie to die for. The service is zilch.... More

Travelling with picky teenagers and a dog is never a picnic (well, strike out "and a dog") - it is not easy to please everyone - but we managed to do so at Balanea. Excellent location, very central, with magnificent views from our sea-suite terrace. In fact, it has the best views in the whole town: from sunrise to moonrise... More

We followed all instructions and found this hotel quite easily in the end. There is no parking nearby, but this is not really a problem as one walks everywhere in Calvi. The first room we were given had a drainage problem in the shower, but within 10 minutes of reporting this, we were moved to a huge suite on the... More
