Clean and quiet room, good shower, coffee and tea, but no refrigerator. Cold drinking water with lemon, is provided in reception for free.The hotel is a bit out of the centre, but it is walkable and a bit of a climb when it is hot. There is a free shuttlebus from the city of Bastia, that starts at the trainstation (10 min. from the hotel) and brings you to the citadel. This can help! The hotel has a small terrace at the street, to sit outside if you like.
At 5 to10 min. from the hotel, a bit farther away from the city, there is a big supermarket Leclercq, and even closer, there is a good bakery. We did not try the buffet breakfast in the hotel, but we tried the express breakfast at the bar (6 euro per person). Do not do that, it is a joke! We only got a very small glass of juice out of a bottle, so not fresh, half of a cup filled with hot water and 1 tea bag, and 4 mini-viennoiseries per person. If we asked for some more, or just some baguette, a very rude barman answered us, that we had to make a choice, only the 4 mini-viennoiseries or baguette and that we only payed 6 euro per person. When he went away, a kindly lady who had heard the discussion, brought us some extra mini-viennoiseries. Bad experience. So, the following morning, we made our own coffee and tea in the room and went to the bakery for big croissants and big butter biscuits. less
