When walking towards the place we honestly wondered what on earth it was (the facade is a bit, should we say, "worn"). But as soon as we got inside of the building, it turned out to be a very pleasant surprise after all. The room standard was actually top-notch, clean and new and nothing at all to complain about. The city itself is small but very beautiful. Highly recommended.

We spent one night here. It was more than enough, we will never be back! The rooms are located above a restaurant and we had to endure horrible amplified music far into the night. The “singer” possessed great stamina and bellowed his lungs out for hours. If you enjoy being kept awake most of the night, being compulsorily “entertained” you may want to stay here. If you appreciate a good night’s sleep, stay away. We couldn’t wait to leave.

Check-in/check-out is a nightmare. My lack of French and, except for a nice waitress, their lack of English made for poor relations. Hotel "reception" is in the restaurant. I had to wait for "10 minutes" for someone to come to show me where my room was. Up a narrow unlit box lined stairway to a noce studio overlooking the bustle of the promenade. The "free parking" pass card did NOT work, so I had to pay 19Euro for parking. Hotel management didn't seem to care about any of the problems. The waitress did smile goodbye sheepishly.

I have given this one star, but only because there is no option for none. Note what others have said about the parking, it is a significant inconvenience. We had to wait until 4pm for the apartment to become available, and the cleaner was still busy when we got in. 3pm is the advertised time. The access corridor and stairs ( up 2 floors)are un-lit, pitch dark at night and not secure, the communal access door standing open at all times. The access stairs are steep and uneven, with wobbly wooden bannisters, no lift access. The apartment is not decorated to a standard which would justify the very handsome price we were charged. It just feels grim. The noise from the marina, crammed with noisy bars, goes on until 2am. We were booked in for 2 nights, but only stayed 1, could not face another. The apartment is not obviously part of a hotel: there are a series of private named mailboxes in the access corridor. Not sure where the rest of the hotel is. Buyer beware.

We stayed here for one night and it is in a super location in Bonifacio with a relatively cheap rate per night. No complaints about the room which was fairly basic, but absolutely functional for a one night visit. However, access is difficult as their hotel description says they have free parking when in fact they offer you the option to park in one of the local car parks with a pass. As there is nowhere to actually park next to the hotel when you arrive we were forced to hunt for a car park with space (not easy in crowded Bonifacio where they all seem to be full!) and ultimately we found one about a 10 minute walk away which we then had to pay for ourselves (about 10 euros for an overnight stay). So it was quite irritating to have to walk to and from our car a couple of times and also pay for the privilege. The hotel might have paid us back for the car park fee, but as the staff speak almost zero English whatsoever and my French is not great, it wasn't worth even trying to have the discussion! Still, despite the lack of English, the staff were friendly and welcoming. Just be wary if you're arriving with a car and expecting to drive it straight into the non-existant hotel car park!
