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
The lovely pool, helpful staff. A bar or perhaps light snacks wouldve been useful.
The view on the harbor The elevator was broken…
Position near rail station and town and helpful staff. No
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.
Close to city centre and port
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 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.
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)
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 staff was kind and helpfull. The room was clean and pleasent. In a convenient place in town.
Fantastic Location, Great Staff helpful and polite, lovely room can't fault it I'm afraid! n/a
Central position No
The location is good. The rooms are very small and dark, and very poorly furnished. Although the bathroom was good for it's size, it looked new. But overall, totally overrated and a ripoff compared to other 3stars on the island. It pales into insignificance against the likes of Best Western Hotels of the same grade, yet cheaper or at least better rooms. I would not recommend this hotel at all.
Very friendly, accomodating staff, great location, nice view of Ajaccio Bay and an open food market every day in front of the hotel! Small but normal size rooms for the area. Highly recommend!
Placed in the center (close to the ort) Vue to see very limitted from 2nd, floor - and not able to sit on the balcony.
Bra läge med parkeringsmöjlighet
Bra läga nära färjeläget i Ajaccio men svårt att hitta dit och svårt att få parkering. Garage finns mot extra kostnad Rummet var MYCKET litet. Svårt att röra sig då sängen upptog 90 % av rummets yta
Very attractive outlook over the sea. Good facilities.
Nice setting by the seaside.
charming location and room
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.
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).
fantastic views and friendly anhelpful staff none
Comfortable, spacious and efficient and very friendly staff that all speak English very well.
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.
Rent, fräscht, skön säng. Dessutom fanns internet att använda gratis i receptionen vilket är ett plus. Vi reste därifrån tidigt på morgonen innan frukostserveringen öppnat och de kunde inte fixa ett litet frukostpaket att ta med, trots att frukost ingår i priset för rummet och vi sa till dagen innan.
Rummet var rent och snyggt! Hotellet ligger bra till, m centralt läge, mkt bra värde för pengarna! Nära till buss till flygplatsen, mitt i stan med strand på promenadavstånd. Lite bullrigt utanför, vi hade fönster mot vägen.
Good valye for money. Clean and nice with wooden internal in the room, near to the central station and the beach. Excellent WiFi connection in the room.
Centralt,nära bad,trevlig gata,nära till buss flyg tåg. Nej.
Mycket centralt beläget hotell nära till allt, ca tio min till den centrala stranden.
the fact that the hotel was in the city center no
Fantastic staff with help for anything we wanted. Very knowledgeable about Ajaccio and what a traveler needs. None really. It was a very nice stay.
very central position (main shopping road of the city), room is very clean, very good service, wifi gratis. The view from the window on the back of the hotel was not of the best.
Helpful, accommodating staff; good location, internet included
Excellent hotel with a fantastic location in the heart of the town. 5 mins walk to the port if coming or going by ferry.
nice staff,very good location! nothing
The staff were friendly and helpfull. Location was exellent for city-walks and shopping.
Helpful staff, location A bit expensive
Location - excellent location, city centre close to shops, restaurants, beach and secure parking. Breakfast wasn't very good - very basic.
Very friendly staff - Very quiet peaceful room
Utmärkt bra standard på rum och badrum. Trevligt bemötande vid ankomst och frukost. Parkeringsmöjligheter saknas. Hotellets garage var enligt uppgift fullt, trots att beläggningen på hotellet verkade låg vit mitt besök. Att hitta parkeringsplats i Ajaccio centrum är mycket svårt.
The hotel is in a great position overlooking the sea and close to several beautiful beaches. However, the rooms and facities are very basic and they are in need of a real overhaul. Breakfast and food in general was over priced. Bt good value for money, especially the air conditioning!
great location right on the beach, lovely pool and outside terrace for breakfast. Good food and nice lounge area. friendly helpful staff. bedroom a little dated and damp in the bathroom with very limited towel rail space to put wet swim stuff and towels. heated towel rail and or hook on back of door would help.
Price Very basic room, just located above the lobby
Only the view run down condition of the complex
Bra konfort i rummet med AC (nödvändigt!), trevlig och serviceinriktad personal, bra frukostbuffé (lite mer än det där vanliga) och skönt med närheten till en fin sandstrand. Synd att hotellet låg så nära en kraftigt trafikerad väg som man var tvungen att passera för att komma till stranden. Men bilisterna var rätt bra på att stanna och släppa över oss. Dessutom låg hotellet en bit från centrum så det tog ca 40 min att gå till Ajaccio Vieille Ville om man inte ville vänta på bussen.
Allt-trevligt, rent charmigt, serviceminded personal.
Ett bra hotell, trots rabatt på priset, mycket dyrt! Bra service! Föredrar mer personliga hotell. Mycket dyr frukost som vi inte provade pga priset. Lite charmlöst men vackert!
Läget framförallt. Precis vid vattnet Luktar lite mögligt på sina håll
Good view of harbour. On busy road but far off so no noise disturbance. Restaurant open till late (11.00 pm) for late comers. Comfy bed and pillows - wonderful. Separate toilet from bathroom - good. We were in an apartment: fridge noisy overnight with bedroom door open. Didn't require as large a dishwasheras supplied, a slimline would have sufficed. Would like to have had a grill of sorts for toast main meals. A vegetable/paring knife would have been useful. With the size of pans supplied difficult to get two at anyone time onto the hob. The cleaning pack was wonderful but the washing up sample should have been bigger, or more supplied.
The view from the room was good. It was clean and comfortable and the staff were helpful. The pool was nice. It was easy to find. Ajaccio was busier than expected.
The pool was lovely, clean and inviting, the lady receptionist was very helpful suggesting a decent beach we could drive to and also restaraunts we could visit. (We didnt want to eat at the hotel the menu was very basic) The male receptionist/barman was unfriendly almost rude, unwilling and unhelpful. The bedrooms were very basic, marks on the carpet, bedroom needed decorating, bed was about 18" off the floor and not comfortable, the constant influx of coach travellers, arriving and departing making such a din with no respect for others outside their group. The whole experience was very disappointing for the money we paid. We expected with a name like Sun Beach, we would be next to a decent beach, we were not.
It was very close to the city and had a nice pool. The waiters were very friendly. There was no tea/coffee making facility in the room.
Our room had a nice seaview. Breakfast served on the terrace was good. Beaches in the proximity were not good. You would need to use car or bus to get into the town of Ajaccio for restaurants and shops etc.
Good view from the hotel room
Price was reasonable, car is convient with location but bus is available to aroumd 2000. Nice breakfast was included and enjoyed dinner one evening.
Excellent position and excellent View. Very gentle personel. Narrow Double Beds.
The only woman, on during the morning who spoke good English and didnt make us feel dirty to be English. Some of the maids were good too. The double bed which were two singles together. The view from balcony. The man who worked on reception in the afternoon who didnt want anything to do with us because we spoke poor french.
balance between the price and the quality of the service. better if there is mini-bar (refrigerator) for long stay, especially in summar.
Sea view, friendly and helpful staff The hotel is the conversion from retirenment housing. The reception area is the new bulding which they advertise, but the actual rooms were located in other part - the old building. Rooms were dated with old fashion furniture, i felt like i was staying with my grandparents in their retirement home. My wife had a weird and sloggy feeling about the place. She felt uncomfortable and could not sleep all night. We arrived in the evening, there were no lights on, everything was shut, not even outside area was lit. Not a nice place to stay and far away from Ajjacio.
Location was good for us (a young family) as we had a terrace at the back of the room which opened onto a large grassy area, which overlooked the sea (rocks not sand). Quite far from town (10 mins drive) and the place was very dated - in serious need of some renovations
View from the room There was no fridge
Very nice hotel on stunning beachside location, we stayed in a room with terrace just above the sea - fantastic breakfast - nice private beach and top swimming pool. Every place of the hotel has incredible seaviews Nothing to complain about
A real find! This place has the best views in Ajaccio, on the bus route, quiet and just far enough removed to be peaceful, yet close enough to the city to enjoy easily. Staff are fantastic!
The apartment was fantastic with great views. We were there out of season and some facilities were not available however this was reflected in the price. Parking could be limited if the complex was full however this is normal for France. You really need a car as it is quite a trek to the town however I would highly recommend Les Sanguinaires
Well organized; quiet. Friendly and knowledgeable staff. Great value for money!!!!! Over-rated; should be a 3 star but offers great value for money. Ventilation issues (mold, odors in hallway), likely related to season (November) or limited to our floor.
Great apartment - no personell and everything is closed after 1st October. You receive a code via telephone and the key is placed in a basket in the hall. No issues with that. Reataurant is closed and now personel around. However, location is great with a great view on the sea!
good location if you have a car since the hotel is on the beach side of ajaccio. compared to price should be at least cleaning the rooms on a daily basis by there staff and not to make you stay for a week to offer you what is common sence..cleaning services.
Large nice premises, modern equipment. Quiet place, nice swimming pool and close to beach.
