    « Excellent! »

    We stayed here for 4 nights in the end of May during our 10 days' trip to Corsica. Our room was spacy enough, very clean with comfortable bed and shower. Wi-Fi was supergood. Personnel is friendly and helpful - nothing to complain. The Hotel is located on a small hill in 10 minutes' walk from the city center. It was not a problem for us, but if you are not in fit, it's better to rent a car. Also, our room (#303) had a road view, so it was a bit noisy, but it was bearable. As for the breakfasts, yep, it's 11.50 EUR per person, but they are so plentiful and tasty that you won't find anything better at the same cost, believe me. It was a very good stay and I would rate Best Western as a 4 stars hotel.

    « Mediocre »

    Spent two nights. Below are my observations: Clean Helpful, English speaking front desk staff Good sized room and bathroom Sink had problems draining Toilet ran all the time WiFI required repeatedly logging on Ground level room on second night smelled terrible, like automotive fumes. I was grateful to wake up the next morning. Restaurant had only one person serving tables and struggled to take care of everyone. Limited menu and was out of pizza FYI, location is not in the center of tourist area and involves a walk up/down a hill. No restaurants open nearby in the evening. You must walk to the tourist zone. Parking is an extra charge. 5 euro per night in the surfaced lot.

    « Very comfortable, just don't eat dinner there. »

    We arrived without a reservation on a cold and wet evening and were welcomed and given excellent prices for three rooms. The rooms were large, comfortable and modern, and even provided facilities for making a hot drink, something that is unusual in Europe. Sure, the bathrooms were pre fab style, but still roomy enough, modern and very clean. Highly recommended. I would suggest eating elsewhere, however. We ate in house as it was cold and wet outside and we were tired. The food is obviously reheated and not prepared freshly on the premises (apart from the simple salads). Food was tolerable but overpriced and not particularly inventive or reflective of Corsican cuisine.

    « Modern and well maintained hotel »

    Have been there for one night after arriving by the ferry. Parking is good if you get a place inside the garage (8€), street parking is maybe difficult, depending on the time of the day and season. Rooms are Best Western standard, you know what you get and won't be disappointed. Breakfast is worth the money, the offer are wide selection of all kind of stuff including local things. Checkin and checkout was pretty fast. We walked down the hill to the city center to have a dinner. It not that far, takes about 15 minutes.

    « Disappointed »

    This hotel is not typical best western standard. It appears to be an ibis hotel with a new name. Rooms very basic with pre fab shower rooms small windows . Food was dreary and seemed to consist of microwave ready meals. Boring breakfast. The shady terrace was no more than an outdoor smoking area. The hotel is up a very steep hill and a long walk from the main square and old port. Not a good choice if you are a tourist and really suited to business people overnighting. Only positives are friendly staff comfy bed and noisy but efficient air con. Our room was described as a suite but was just a normal room with a sofa bed. On a busy road with bright lights outside shining at windows.

    « Basic hotel, a bit out of the centre »

    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.

    « Close to the port area. »

    The hotel staff are friendly and helpful. The room is basic but provides most things to make a pleasant stay. Bed comfortable and choice of soft and firm pillows. Only disposable cups available so taints the tea and coffee. The walk into the port area is a quick down hill walk. Hot and up hill return. A pleasant stay.

    « Our Corsica Experience »

    This was a wonderful hotel with friendly and helpful staff. The superior room was very comfortable and well maintained. It was very clean ( compliments to the staff). We really valued the air conditioning. We enjoyed the 10 minute walk into the centre of Bastia where we could access all that this town has to offer.

    3
    « It's misleading to call it centre »

    It's actually quite a long walk from the centre, especially on the ascending way back. The rooms are well equipped but the curtains don't prevent the sun light from entering the window, which is bad for your sleep quality early morning.

    « Best Western Corsica Hotel »

    Comfortable hotel. Located a bit away from the city centre though. 10 minutes on foot from the railway station, where the bus to/from the airport stops. This is not a big deal if there is no luggage, otherwise the way to the hotel is a bit uphill. The hotel offers a free shuttle to the city, citadel. The room was good, with all needed. A complementary bottle of water and a tea kettle are in the room. Wifi works very well. Good breakfast. Nice, efficient staff. Check-in time is 16:00, I came at 15 and something and was ready to wait in the lobby, but the room was available and I got the key without any delays.

    « Good but can improve »

    We spent 3nights, 4days at Best Weatern in Bastia. The stuff was kind, the hotel is clean. So, I won't say that was bad because it wasn't however I will mentione same 'small surprises'. Surprises which by the way, didn't hurt me but lets say that its worth to be pointed out: - parking spot: you need to pay 8eur for a place in the underground parking and/or 5eur for outside parking. - breakfast: no diversity! Every morning the same thing: a kind of ham, a kind of salami, a kind of cheese, boiled eggs, jams, butter and some pancakes. Coffee, tea, water and ok, 2 types of bread. - after cleaning, in the room persist a bad smell - I think because poor quality of the detergents. So, yes, I see things to improve and easily! Thank you,

    « A bit away from the city but walkable »

    The hotel is located east (and uphill) of the city centre. So you need a 20-30 minutes walk to get there. Driving the car in town at the end of pm is impossible. The hotel is nice, very clean and well kept. Happy with the stay.

    « Nice and comfortable stay »

    We stayed there for 3 day and 2 nights. It was a good and comfortable stay. Breakfast spreads was nice. The rooms are exactly shown in the pictures. They have spacious room n tea kettle was provided in the room. Over all it was a great experience.

    « Room, WiFi and breakfast good »

    This hotel is located up the hill a bit from the centre of town, but it was good to have the 15 minute walk each way to dinner. Good to find an electric jug in room to easily get a coffee/tea. Good garage for bikes. Easy 5 minute drive to ferry terminal for morning ferry after early breakfast.

    « A little to far from airport but good location for visitors »

    A late night check in after long day so not in the most favourable review mode. Nonetheless the staff were welcoming and helpful. Excellent free wifi throughout the premises and the rooms were clean, comfortable and furnished in a modern style. I would guess they have viewed the Ibis format!

    « Hotel with parking - fine for one night »

    Comfortable room with wifi, room safe, kettle, air conditioning and even an umbrella! Bathroom was a pod-style and clean with a decent shower and hair dryer. Reasonably good sound insulation, although I could still hear the lift. It's not far from the town ? a 10 minute walk downhill past the station to the main port, however, it is a steep hill and walking up took a lot longer. The hotel was fine for one night and we chose it because of the underground car park (at €8 a night) and because it was easy to find. We didn't eat at the hotel.

    « Night before going to wild Corsica »

    Hotel is located on outskirts of Bastia, but as town is small you are 15-20 minutes walk from main attractions. We had difficulties finding parking lot for our car as almost all lots were occupied. Hotel itself is quite standard. We had to pass breakfast room on our way to ground floor rooms- bit strange. Wi-fi was working OK.

    2
    « only for one night »

    we stayed only one night. the staff was friendly, the hotel as such quite run down. the bathroom was clean, even though it was a plastic cabin in the room. the bed was mediocre and the carpet quite old. i wouldn't really reccomend the place except if you need to just spend a night to cath a boat next day. garage was 8 euro and breakfast would have cost for us an extra 45 euro for four people. all in all paying 200 euro for staying for one night in a 3* hotel is really steep.

    3
    « Decent stay for one night »

    A decent hotel for really short stays, but a bit overpriced. We booked a superior room with extra large beds. The price was 120 euro, breakfast excluded. We got a room that looked less than 18 sq.m. with a module plastic bathroom, like in a trailer. It must have been much cheaper than making a normal bathroom... The bed was nothing special, but ok for one night, especially that we are now travelling with our own pillows. More important was that the room was really clean. The view was on the parking of the nearby block of flats. There is no parking available on site, but there is a garage. When we arrived, it was full, so we had to find a place on the street. Luckily, we found a free space some 100 meters away, otherwise the area is pretty crowded with cars. As to the location of the hotel, theoretically it is not too far from the center, but on practice it is located in the middle of nowhere, as there is nothing of any interest around. What i did really like was the staff at the reception. After we checked-in they really helped us a lot to order pizza into the room and with other questions. They were polite, patient and helpful.

    « Perfect for 1 night »

    I stayed one night in this hotel on my way to Paris pros: - good service Cons: - small rooms for the price - parking is for a fee - not super well located ( nothing around) - breakfast not included Would I go back : I don't think so

    « Nothing special »

    We chose this hotel based on price/location and staying for just one night. The rooms are ok-ish, small but with a comfortable bed and coffee/tea making facilities. The bathroom is a prefabricated very small shower unit, very much like what you get in a cabin on a ferry. The hotel has an outdated feel with carpets everywhere. There is only a very small outdoor seating area (for smokers) right next to the entrance and the road. Outdoor parking available at a fee. Even if it was just for one night, I wish we would have stayed somewhere with a bit more character and atmosphere.

    « Barely ok »

    My ranking may be a bit harsh but I was disappointed by my stay. The hotel was not too far from downtown but this was a good walk uphill; the room had small cheap showers, and I found the staff to be too unaccomodating (although not unpleasant). May be ok for business travelers for a short stay but not for a vacation.

    « Nice "business oriented" hotel »

    Modern, but somewhat small room. Good breakfast. Garage is available, but there is also plenty of free street parking nearby. Friendly staff and good housekeeping. Not a typical vacation hotel, but since the location is fairly close to the city center it is still a good alternative.

    5
    « Very nice hotel in Bastia »

    Atfter arriving with the ferry at 8pm, we have chosen this hotel to spend one night before venturing deeper into Corsica. The hotel is very clean, functional and calm. It was a very could decision to stay there and I can only recommend this hotel for staying in Bastia!

    « Airport stay »

    Hotel is at the top of a very steep hill but parking available underneath hotel for 8 euro. Room was quite cosy with a travelcot provided by the hotel. Bathroom is a small cubicle. Bed was comfortable and staff friendly and helpful. 10 minute walk into centre of Bastia.

    « Clean and efficient.... »

    This Hotel offers everything that one needs, comfort, efficiency and friendliness, without the price tag that "kills" your budget! It is close to the center of town, but still a bit away from noise and the smell of cars. If you don't need a super big room, this is a great place to stay for a short vacation or a business visit.

    « Comfort Stay in Bastia (Semi-)center »

    Nice hotel in Bastia, approx. 1 km from town center (downhill going and climbing up on return); no services in the near. Friendly staff, comfortable rooms but no refrigerator in room. Good service, rooms were clean and with all comforts. Quite position with no traffic during the night. Excellent breakfast buffet, even if a little expensive (but it's a classic in Corse...). A good stay.

    3
    « Good rooms »

    Good room "sur la cour" was quiet. Large with pleasant decor. Breakfast was adequate. Extra blanket and heater available when central heating has been turned off for spring. The staff could be less arrogant, not that I care.

    4
    « Good Location »

    Good location for car ferry service. Staff was friendly and hotel is very clean. Location is within walking distance to town and the hotel provides parking. The staff helped us a great deal with the ferry schedule and were quite accommodating.

    « Nice Best Western in Bastia »

    We stayed there a few night in July 2015. The hotel is about 15-20 minutes of walk from the core of the city and restaurants, with a steep hill to walk upon return from the city. The hotel is well located to reach Cap-Corse or St-Florent surrounding area. The hotel is clean, comfortable, good service, quiet, plenty of parking (indoor and outdoor are different price) and as well, possible to park in the surrounding steet without a problem. They have a paid breakfast buffet in the morning, decent quality with a little terrace outdoor to relax for a coffee... Going back to Bastia, I would consider staying at this hotel again!

    « Happy stay for 1 night »

    Stayed here for one night to catch an early morning ferry, its no more than 15 minutes walk down the hill. Room was adequate for my needs, hotel has parking that you pay for but you can drop off at a layby out the front. Would use again but only for 1 night if catching a ferry.

    4
    « Two night stay »

    Nice hotel, good size bedroom, excellent shower. Helpful,staff. Good breakfast selection. Only downside, hotel at top of hill! Parking difficult, however hotel has underground car park, 8 euros per day.

    « Old IBIS, new Best Western Corsica Hotel Bastia Centre? »

    It is obvious that this hotel was originally an IBIS. The layout of the rooms correspond with normal IBIS rooms. I assume that after renovation during 2010 the hotel went under Best Western management.

    « Nice Hotel, but Location? »

    This hotel is a great standard and was a great value. Nice comfortable room, very clean, air conditioning, excellent service, nice buffet breakfast which was extra for us, all at a very reasonable price. Our only concern is that it is up a steep hill from the center of old town and the port. We walked with our luggage, but if we had to do it again, we would opt for a taxi or the bus to get up the hill with luggage.

    « Pre night before Corsica Ferry stop over »

    We have stayed in Bastia for the last two years the night before we get the morning ferry. The location is 5-10 minutes walk ( downhill) to the square which is buzzing with out door bars and just round the corner from the Old Port which is really nice. I would recommend getting a taxi back up to the hotel and the cost was €10 - with a 6 & 4 year old this was money well spent. We had pre booked parking but forgot to tell them we had a roof box so we couldn't go in the underground car park. However the staff were very helpful and rang around the guests so we could use the secure above ground car park at the rear. The rooms were really very nice indeed with the only gripe ( probably my fault) was that I couldn't get the air con set right and the room was too hot for me. We left early in the morning so I can't rate the breakfast. Would I stay again? Yes I would

    « Good hotel for a city trip in Bastia and a visit of St Florent and Csp Corse »

    Clean and quiet hotel, comfortable bed,friendly and helpful staff,good breakfast for 11,5 per person or 5,50 ( not exactly shore anymore of this price) for express breakfast,8 euro per day for hotel parking, but you find parking spaces near the hotel, good quality for the price of one night, it is on a hill quite far from the city centre by foot but if you have a car you can find a cheap parking in the centre, so the location was no problem for us, I did not like the design of the bath room which is made like a cabin (no tiles), and you have to make some noise to close the door, and therefore you sometimes hear the others guests or room maids in the morning. We would stay at this hotel again.

    5
    « A good conveniently situated hotel with secure parking »

    We have been using this hotel for the past 7 years before catching the ferry back from Corsica. The big attraction for me is it is a fairly short walk (down hill going, up hill on return) into the centre and has a secure underground car park that is not that easy to find in the centre of Bastia. There is also a very large supermarket a very short walk away. The rooms are clean and functional and had good air conditioning when we last stayed there last September. We are back again as per usual this September so I hope the recent AC problems reviewers are reporting has been sorted!

    3
    « Ok but beware, very poor air conditioning. »

    We stayed for four nights in July. The location suited us, about a mile from town with parking on the roads around the hotel or in the small garage on site. It is not really good for walking into town especially in the summer heat as it is too far and uphill pretty much all the way back. Hotel was clean and check fast with English speaking staff. The room was fine but the air conditioning was dreadful. We stayed in two different rooms during our stay and one was as bad as the other. Wi-Fi worked well. Ok for a short break in cooler weather!

    « A Good Hotel - Pity about the Location »

    On arrival at the railway station we took lunch before attempting the long and steep climb up to the hotel. Once we'd booked in, we walked down to the old port and the Citadel and stayed out the rest of the day, taking a taxi back to the hotel. The following morning we knew that it was a long way down to the ferry terminal, so we ordered a taxi (€12). The hotel itself was modern and had every comfort we expected from a Best Western hotel. Efficient lift between Reception and our room. The Wi-Fi worked excellently ? a very good breakfast. Receptionists very helpful. Even a kettle in our room!

    3
    « Ok for short break »

    Stayed at this hotel 2 days ago when temperatures were very warm. Don't think reviewers have had same issue but obviously our air con was broken. Was staying in third floor executive room and have never had such a hot room !!! Glad I was only there for one night - just unbearable. Apart from that the hotel is fine - clean, good location and lovely staff.
