The Hotel San Carlu, built on the ruins of Napoleon’s child minder’s house, gives you a sense of being right amongst the rich history of Ajaccio. Put your feet up on your own private terrace at the Hotel Gulf or stay at the Hotel Napoleon, located in the city centre, boasting a French charm, regal interior and comfortable rooms.
Take me to the promenade
There are few places more beautiful and thriving in Ajaccio than the seafront promenade. Hotels nearby grant easy access to the promenade’s walkways, the nearby beaches and the old port near the Citadel. You can take a walk along the water’s edge, passing various bars, restaurants and shops, or embark on a boat trip out of the old port.
You can still find affordable accommodation in such a majestic location including Le Dauphin, the Palaise Hotel, Kalliste Hotel and the Residence Dolc Eden. Enjoy modern rooms with a traditional vibe, along with convenient access to almost all of Ajaccio’s main attractions.
