BEST WESTERN Hotel du Roy D'Aragon,Bonifacio

    « Very good hotel on the port and near the bus station »

    Bonifacio is located directly on the Mediterranean Sea, separated from Sardinia by the Strait of Bonifacio. The city of Bonifacio is split into two sections. The vieille ville (old town), or la Haute Ville (the Upper city), on the site of a citadel, is located on the promontory overlooking the Mediterranean Sea. The citadel was built in the 9th century with the foundation of the city. The Citadel has been reconstructed and renovated many times since its construction and most recently was an administrative center for the French Foreign Legion. Today it is more of a museum. The city and its fortifications also extend for some distance along the cliff-tops, which are at about 70 meters (230 ft) elevation. The cliffs have been undercut by the ocean so that the buildings, which have been placed on the very lip of the precipice, appear to overhang it. The appearance from the sea is of a white city gleaming in the sun and suspended over the rough waters below. It is good to take the little train to go up and it is easy to come down to the port again. These hotel gives the possibility to see the city easily.

    « Best Hotel Views of the Citadel, steps away from Bus Top, Supermarché et Laverie »

    LOVE Bonifacio and this hotel!!! Got really lucky reserving the best Terrasse top level Room #404 with views of the Citadelle and the port! Supermarket and laundry mat are steps away! Instead of staying 3nights, I stayed 7 nights here in this charming, tiny town. Walked up to the Citadelle daily and/or along the cliff top hiking path. Gorgeous views of linestone cliffs and the beautiful blue ocean! Vacationed in Corsica for 2wks, Bonifacio was my FAV R&R charming tiny town. Tons of restaurants and tiny boutiques to browse. I LOVE this hotel and will return every time I return to Bonifacio! Steps away from the bus stop, easy to take quick bus trips to Sartène and Propriano, but you need to find out the bus schedules!!! Not many buses so timing is critical! Can't wait to return to my hotel terrasse one year soon! Citadelle lights up with colors and art symbols on some nights. Beautiful, charming tiny town!!! :0)

    « Hotel wll located but average stay. »

    I had chosen this hotel for the view on the port and had specifically booked a room with a terrace on the last floor for two nights. For some reason 3 weeks prior to our trip I had to cancel the first night. To reach the hotel you have to park close by in a tiny parking (max 20 mns) that is always full. The hotel is easily reachable. Good welcome although I discover we have been given a family room. I tried to explained that I had booked a room with a view and terrace but the receptionist advised me that the code received from best western was for a family room which consists of a leaving room with a sofa bed and a bedroom). Since the hotel is full we cannot change. Room was spacious, cleaned and seemed to be recently renovated. The only inconvenient is that the room was at the back facing the road to the Citadelle and the traffic with it. so forget opening the windows. Mattress was of good quality, pillows a little thin. bathroom was of good size. don' t really understand the taps but water is overflowing, not practical. Wifi was good. location is great as in the center butt disappointed not to get the room initially booked.

    « Nice choice in Bonifacio »

    We really enjoyed the hotel ? the room was not too spacious, but very clean, bed and linens high quality and comfy, and excellent shower. Well located for exploring beautiful Bonafacio. Free parking is available, its about a 5 minute walk away. Park in the parking lot beside the harbour that offers 40 minutes free, then move to the free parking lot provided by the hotel.

    « Staff unhelpful »

    We called in for a drink and a wifi session, to be told that there was no wifi, despite us having a good signal and the hotel having an internet corner.. Clearly they were uninterested in passing trade and were only there for their guests. As an aside the drinks were ok if a bit pricey.. You can do much better in Bonifacio.

    « Exceeded Expectations »

    We never thought we would stay at a Best Western Hotel (big chain tour bus type hotel) but this one exceeded our expectations. We booked a sea front room and were given a room on the 3rd floor with a large terrace overlooking the marina and old town. The room and bathroom was renovated and modern. Location was perfect on the waterfront. Front desk (especially a lady named Florence) was very helpful and cheerful. The only negative was that the walls are abit thin and we could hear people leaving and closing their doors in the mornings. Bonifacio is a very nice town

    « Marvelous stay in a fantastic setting »

    we spent two nights in this lovely hotel located right in the Bonifacio Harbor. The rooms are clean and well equipped. The price is reasonable for that location and the staff is friendly. We will definitively go back to Hotel du Roy d'Aragon if we ever go back to Bonifacio.

    « Nice hotel, but do not expect to sleep before 2am »

    The pros: - Great location in a great city - Free parking (ca. 300 m from the hotel) - Large family room, newly refurbished - Nice port view for some rooms - Nice welcome at check-in The cons: - INCREDIBLY noisy: there is an open air bar / club on the port (the B52) with REALLY VERY loud music until 2am, Friday night was OKish, but Saturday night was a nightmare, to the point the windows (single glazing!) were shaking. I find it hard to believe that some reviews praise the hotel for quietness - At check-out, not a word of apology when I complained: they don't seem to care - Non-smoking space for breakfast very limited, we had to insist with the waiter so as we could have a smokeless breakfast with our 3 years old child All in all, I really advise people who want to sleep to avoid hotels facing the port (if you don't mind noise, then the Roy d'Aragon is probaby one of the best choices). Bonifacio is a small town and hotels further from the port are not very far.

    « Great Location and Rooms! »

    The rooms are very modern and comfortable. This was the nicest hotel we stayed at in Corsica. It is located right in the bustling area of the lower part of town. The views are great as you can see the town get moving in the a.m. from your room window. The desk staff, meh...they weren't too friendly but then again it is a tourist town. MAKE SURE you get the parking down. Do not leave a parking lot once you get in...purchase a new ticket because parking is very, very difficult.

    « Wow. What A Perfect Location »

    This hotel is right on Bonifacio harbor and is a real find. Ask for a room on the top floor with a balcony. You will love the view. I didn't realize that Bonifacio is really two towns, the harbor and the upper old city. Although there are more expensive hotels in the old city I didn't see any that Looked nearly as cool. Astrid at the front desk was lovely, kind and went the extra mile to help us feel comfortable. It's a bit of a challenge to get there with the car so ask the hotel to walk you through the parking and check in. Bonifacio is by far our favorite of the places we visited in Corsica. I would stay here at least two or three nights and use it as a base for visiting beaches, boat rides and exploring both towns. We stayed two and would love to come back.

    « Good location »

    The location of the hotel is perfect. The price is ok for location. You can walk to the old part of the city, and at night you have many restaurants close by. The hotel itself is basic. The bedroom is clean and small. The bathroom was modern and quite big for the size of the room. Breakfast on the outside terrace is great. The staff was very friendly and helpful. If you travel with a disabled person or children or wiht heavy luggages the distance from the hotel to the parking lot may be an issue (about 10 minute walk)

    « Stopped here for breakfast one morning »

    We did not stay at the hotel but on visit Bonifacio for the day we arrived early and has breakfast here, it was excellent, bread, yogurt, croissant pain ou chocolate endless coffee and juice. They call it the continental and was €9 each, it kept us going all day.

    « A very good and well localized hotel with a very rude receptionist. »

    We arrived the hotel around noon and we were told that our room was not ready yet and that we have to come back at 3:00 pm. So we did. But, Mrs.Florence, who was in the reception, informed us that the room was not ready yet. We answered that we were very tired and the rule is to have the check in at that time. She start to shout that we have to wait. We insisted and she phoned to somebody that told her to change our room for one that it was already done. Simple like that. But she was really upset and she pointed his finger at the ready in my husband's face and screamed again saying one insults and threw the room key at the front desk. It was a very bad start in this hotel. We cannot believe that a hotel like BEST WESTERN has a employee like that.

    « Great location »

    We stayed for one night in July while visiting beautiful Bonifacio. The location is perfect with parking nearby. The hotel is right in the middle of everything and we spent a lovely evening looking at the boats, shopping and having dinner pretty much on the doorstep of the hotel. The location is good for less mobile folk as it is all flat and paved outside. (The old town up at the citadel is another matter). The staff were pleasant and check in efficient. Air con could have been a bit better but given that is was July it did the job. The room was small but adequate. I would recommend this hotel and if I am ever lucky enough to visit Bonifacio again this is where I will stay!

    This hotel is located at the beginning of the port of Bonifacio with the public parking close by. Please don't follow your GPS as it will try to guide through the port, which you don't have access. There is a 40-minutes free parking to do your check-in near the port. Unfortunately, our check-in experience was a disaster. We initially had reservations of four nights and asked the check-in blond women to reduce to three nights (which I do 10-12 times in hotel brands without issues depending on travel plans changes) and this is where the rampage started. The check-in women was clearly not in love with tourist season as she start blasting us that July & August were the complaint season and the period where customers were full of requirements and needs. This lady wasn't born for customer service?In addition, she totally refuses to change my reservation and force me to call the head-office of Best Western to change my reservation, which they weren't able to do because I already check-in!!!! As a frequent traveler booking 70-90 nights a year in hotels, that was one of the worst check-in experience I had in a few years?.Anyway, after a few arguments, we finally had our keys and the head-office of Best Western fixed the issue. Not something you want to handle in your vacation. The room was extremely small in Europe standard. The bed was totally uncomfortable and feels like sleeping on wood. We got the room facing the backstreet and you can hear cars / bikes / Buses going to Bonifacio 24/24 hours a day. If you sleep there, ask a room facing the port! On the good side, the room was very clean. On the positive side, the hotel is located on the port, close to all ports restaurants and bars, just beside a few groceries. About 15-20 minutes of walk to the old-town with a steep hill and a very safe area. Beside the check-in experience, service was good. Breakfast is 9 euros and parking was free in a lot about 5 minutes of walk from the hotel. And the check-out, it was a different women and the experience was way much better. Going back to area, I would certainly consider a different option at the best western didn't meet my criteria's to make a good stay (Bad check-in experience, Comfort of the bed, noise) and created me worries I had to fix in my vacation but the location can please a lot of people.
