We spent three nights at this hotel. We were upgraded to a 'chambre comfort' which was spacious and clean. All hotel staff were friendly - the reception staff were very helpful in recommending places for us to park the car and restaurants to eat in, as well as giving us advice on the best route to take to get to the next town we were stopping at.
We had breakfast one morning in the panoramic restaurant but it was quite basic so we ate elsewhere for the rest of our stay.
I would definitely recommend this hotel.

Website is very misleading - roof terrace is not all that impressive and you cannot eat outside as the photos suggest. Breakfast very poor - bad coffee, orange juice, stale-ish bread and croissant every day. No pool, no fridge in room, no room service, no English channels on television. Staff are not especially helpful or friendly. Extremely disappointing for a 3 * hotel (not even the standard I'd expect from 2*). It didn't look like it had been refurbished since the '70s!

we stayed at Calvi Grande Hotel for four nights in may 2007 and we loved it. The rooms are spatious, the bathroom is clean and huge, breakfast is "french": croissants, coffe or tea, butter and jam. The hotel has an "antik" air, very chic. The location is great, in the very heart of town, beautiful view, not far from the beach. Hope to go there again, it was the vacation of our life.

Grand it may have been but no more. The Grand Hotel IS well situated, only a couple of short blocks from Calvi's beautiful citadel, but the rooms, well, lack any charm. They are clean, basic, functional, if a bit dark (especially the bathrooms). Breakfast is uninspired and includes all you can drink bad coffee. Without much effort this hotel could be exceptional. As it is, it is simpy mediocre -- albeit with a friendly staff.

Well, came to Corsica to get away from the terrible British summer. It rained for the first 3 days! The rain washed the town's rubbish into the sea so couldn't swim either in the bay! That apart .............. the hotel was fine overall. staff were very courteous to us from the receptionists to the cleaners. Got to choose a nicer room on arrival as the one on the street front was a bit noisy. try to get one at the back with a balcony. the worse thing of the hotel is undoubtedly the food. the breakfast was ok but consisted only of coffee, concentrated juice, potted jams and bread. not a piece of fresh fruit in sight ......... in the Mediterranean? I wanted more choice for my money. Don't bother eating in the restaurant in the evening unless you are just too tired to dine out. Very poor stodge. And this is France? Or is it? Great location. Liked Calvi with its marina and citadel. Tips for good restaurants in town: 1) Calellu 2) Magnolia 3) Pulcinella brasserie at lunch time run my a nice Italian family and with great views over the marina. prices can be pretty high at seafront restaurants if that's an issue. Car hire is pretty high too but essnetial if you want to se the spectacular scenery. It has to be the most twisty road ever on the west coast down to Porto. Train from Calvi is useful for the north coast beaches and an experience in itself (dilapodated and from another era). I need to revisit Corsica when the sun shines, which I would do as I feel I was a little short changed. It's a nice island and packs a punch with its scenery.
