“Central and quiet”
Reviewed 8 August 2011

Enjoyable hotel in the centre of old town Ajeccio. Just a short stroll from everything. Perfect for shopping, museum, cafe, eating and drinking. All close by.

Car parking is a bit tricky at first although garage was good there is no space in front of hotel for check-in and baggage drop off. Visitors are left with blocking street.

All in all: Would stay again and can reccommend it for vacation and business.

My boyfriend and I stayed at this hotel for one night in July.

Positives:
The staff was welcoming and friendly, and the night receptionist was a very pleasant old man who suggested a very good restaurant for us. Furthermore we were able to park our car in the hotel garage for an extra €10. The location was central.

Negatives:
The room was on the 7th (top) floor, and a refurbishment was well overdue. The floor had a carpet which seemed to be from the 70s, there was a hole in the bathroom door, and the bathroom was not very inviting - it seemed like nothing had been done in there since the 70s either. There was a bathtub with a shower option, but no shower curtain, resulting in a very wet bathroom after showering.

There was minimal insulation between rooms, so we could more or less hear the conversations in the next room.

All in all I would have expected a lot more from a 3 star hotel. Based on previous reviews on Tripadvisor I was very disappointed by the standards of this hotel and would not recommend it or stay here again.

We stayed for 2 nights and found the hotel to be convenient as a base to explore Ajaccio. It is helpful that they have a parking garage (10 euro a day) just around the corner from the hotel, but you really don't need a car to see the city. The reception and check-in was fine and on check-out they booked a taxi for us which arrived a little late. The room itself was somewhat dark and not as nice as those shown on the website, but still okay. There was quite a long way from the small lift to the room with corners and steps at different levels which was a bit awkward with luggage. We didn't use the restaurant since there were plenty of nearby bakeries for breakfast. The location is very central but tucked down a side street so not too noisy. If you are just looking for somewhere convenient to stay it is fine, but not really the place for a special occasion.

Room Tip: Not all the rooms are as large or light as on the website

Positives:
- Good location close to shopping streets and old city
- Very friendly and helpful staff
- Clean and comfortable rooms/bathrooms

Negatives:
- It sounded like a river flowing through our room whenever bathrooms in neighbouring rooms were used. Also some noise from the hallway.
- Breakfast OK, but not worth the price. Several good bakeries nearby.

Hotel Napoleon was a very nice hotel in Ajaccio. The room was spotless, however very small; but we weren't surprised by that. It was very affordable and provided a very good cost to quality experience. The reception area was very helpful and for the most part very pleaseant. We didn't choose to have breakfast at the hotel, as we enjoyed going to the open air markets and getting fruit and pastries from the pastry shops. I did however enjoy several cups of the hotel's cappuccino in the morning, and that was delicious.
While in Ajaccio, the jazz festival was going on and that was a real bonus. Lots of fun! Also, we visited the house where Napoleon was born and that was enjoyable. Ajaccio is a busy but prettty port city. And we would highly recommend Hotel Napoleon.

Room Tip: Nice rooms at affordable prices.
