Check in was quick and hassle free, staff allowed us lots of space during our stay. The hotel looked lovely from the outside with fairy lights lighting up terraces. Although we didn't eat at the restaurant it had a charming ambience. The room was basic and in need of refreshing but beds were comfortable. Loud music in the restaurant/bar did go on past midnight which disturbed sleep. Basic breakfast (2 croissants, rolls and jam) was included with our room but could of been more varied. Price didn't reflect what was on offer.
A disappointing experience related to the price that we paid (€ 132). - By arrival no wifi, later fixed - By arrival no hot water, the supply starten in the evening. - Dirty carpet on the floor - No seaview as described in the offer. Just a blind wall and a little piece of water far away. - Further from the sea as subscribed: a 7-10- minutes walk - Bad/ thin matrasses on the bed - A small room at the 1st floor. The staff told us that the rooms at the 2nd and 3rd stock were much nicer... All of this is hard to write, because the staff was very friendly and nice and they did all their best. I really hope that they manage to solve the problems. In that case I will read the great reviews here with pleasure!
We use this as a stop-over place to spend one night. The stairs are steep and dark, and you are right on a main road. However, the rooms are decorated tastefully, and have air condition, although they could do with a balcony.
My husband and I stayed overnight in Solenzara in the off season. The reception area is in the back through the restaurant and bar and was not really welcoming or efficient. Room 305 is 51 un-aided steps from the lobby which was fine for us but was a slog with luggage. The room faced the street but you could see the sea if you opened the side window and looked around the corner. There is lots of free city parking between the hotel and the sea which is nice. The room initially appeared 'mod' but was actually furnished a bit strange and somewhat impractical. A round table that is also a lamp and only a foot high. Acrylic see-through furniture and lamps. A very low-slung white leather couch. A big bathroom with-out a single shelf or hook, and a huge shower that does everything but produce hot water... Good things were cleanliness, AC, room safe, free wifi, open closet with shelves, a desk, a night table, one reading lamp, and two windows. The queen bed was hard but comfortable with very good linens. The room was quiet in the night and we had a good sleep. Happily, we purchased the demi-pension room rate which included dinner and breakfast. We enjoyed a very good dinner in the street level restaurant. Breakfast was typical French style served on a tray in the same restaurant.…
We chose this as we wanted to be close to the beach as well a the calanque. The hotel is a classic old French hotel but rooms are very modern. Our corner room on the top floor (facing the main road) was large, bright, wasn't noisy (off season) and very modern in a French way. Just be aware that there are no elevators (or porter service). Check in was at some office around some corner in the bar. A bi confusing but that's how things are. No qualms about returning if I was in the area again
We came with 2 little kids and stayed for one week. The location is great for travels to the mountains, to Porto Vecchio or Bonifacio. Breakfast and dinner were good and sufficient, however the dinner was a little expensive. However, you can also try one of the other restaurants of Solenzara. On thursdays and saturdays the street in front of the hotel is closed for market. On those days you should reserve a table at the hotel's restaurant just for the sake of people watching.
Stayed in Solenzara many times at the Mar e Fest, but it is being demolished now, so booked in at the 3 Terrasses. Staff were friendly, but didn't go the extra mile. No lift, so not good for elderly people with heavy suitcases. Nothing special about the room.
Let us start with the positive: We did have a room and very centrally located. Restaurant below which could provide good atmosphere. And then the negative. The hotel is not for middle aged persons as we were installed in very tiny rooms suitable for backpackers and the disco rythms started app 11 o clock in the evening and continued until 5 o clock in the morning! Impossible to sleep! Bath room had had a cheap face lift but it did not improve the overall impression that here is a hotel who has earned 3 stars much too easy. It is not worth it. Max two stars for rating and it should be announced clearly that this is a noisy place. Breakfast was decent enough but staff seemed in general very young and unattentive. I am sorry that I can not come up with anything more positive.
I stayed 4 days at Les 3 Terrasses with my friend, a small boutique hotel. We had a superior room which is newly remodeled with a modern touch. The bed is very comfortable so are the pillows. By the European standards the room and the bathroom are huge, could easily fit 3 people. The only thing I hated about this room was the bathroom! There is no door, just a curtain, so if you need some "privacy" better to use the bathroom outside of your room on the 1st floor. Downstairs there is a bar and a restaurant that gets pretty busy in the evening and at night with a young and hip crowd and will not close until the last client. The personnel/staff there is very friendly, nice, accommodating and helpful. I would stay at this hotel again if ever in the neighborhood :)
At first I didnt realise when I accepted to stay there because the price was relatively good for what they were offering. Solenzara is one of the few places in Corsica where you can have easy access to the beach in a walking distance from hotels, where as usually you drive infinite road and walk kilometers to find a beach. This one had this feature as well, and at first sight it looked clean and comfortable with a sort of modern deco and I thought wow for 60 euros per night we didnt get this in other cities. There was however a very strong weird smell that after a while I realised it was urine. I assume since a regular night life exists in the street below people get regularly drunk and urinate inside their hotel rooms and then the smell doesnt really go away even after trying to clean it. wiifi connection quite good, staff service good.…
