Best Western Hotel Alcyon3.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
We spent a night there, 2 adults. Easy to park in front of the hotel for few minutes, time to leave the luggage and get info about the carpark. Very small bedroom, with quite a nice view. Design bathroom but it's so easy to water the entire floor if you don't pay attention. Breakfast too expensive, we had a very nice one on the Harbour. The big problem is the noise, with constant slamming doors and the other's guests noises during the night. Please do some soundproof work!
A little tricky to find but rang the hotel and the receptionist talked us there with her directions. Reception staff great and helpful. The worst thing about our stay was our room - at the back of the hotel overlooking a breeze block wall and was absolutely tiny. The shower cubicle was minute but saying that, a great powerful shower. The best thing about the hotel is its location (a couple of minutes walk up into the old town), the rooftop wine bar with views to die for and the best breakfast we had all week in Corsica!
When we arrived to the hotel they told us all the info, except for breakfast price is not included in the price. It was not written in the booking nor in confirmation breakfast has a seperate price. On top, they told us we may have our breakfast in upstairs which we thought it is included. When we checked out they charged us for 15 euro pp, w that we could have eaten better breakfast for a cheaper price. When we tried to explain this receptionist guy told us that we should have known:D how could we know this if it is not explained or not stated in the document. He couldnt showed in the doc that it is not included and even though we havent signed the confirmation he charged us and misbehaved! When we tried to explain over phone they shut down the phone.. Please dont go there!!! For sure there are many hotels w better price and better quality! There is no need to have a discussion w front desk.
The hotel is central on a hill. Close enough to be in the old & newer part of town. Easy to find. Hotel is near restaurants, bars & nightclubs. Opposite the hotel they have a outside open theatre where one can perform hits to guests entertained. The hotel has a bar area on the 6th floor overlooking the the harbour. Wifi seemed a bit a slow at times. Will definitely be visiting again soon.
The room - a"double room" - for 300 euros per night excluding breakfast - was absurdly small - 13/14 sq metres- the bathroom miniscule - also they did not even make up the bed or clean the room - For 300 euros per night this is simply UNACCEPTABLE - Best Western should be ashamed - Hwever, staff very pleasant - I am writing this review to warn fellow travellers -
I spent five nights at the Best Western Hotel Alcyon. Overall, it was a pretty good experience. The location is excellent - about a two minute walk from the center of Porto Vecchio. The closest bus stop to go to the beautiful beaches of Santa Giulia and Palombaggia is about a 7-8 minute walk. Staff were friendly - no complaints here. The room was pretty decent (I had a "superior" room). But the biggest drawback is the fact that the walls are so thin that you hear all the nearby doors being opened/slammed and some noise from neighbour rooms. Breakfast was 15 euros, which I thought was rather expensive for what was on offer (not a bad selection, but not quite to my taste). overall i'd recommend this hotel.
It has everything a Best Westen should have. Great location, nice beds and friendly staff even in the evening where I approached the hotel. Also amazing breakfast and beautiful view from 5th floor where the breakfast is served.
Located near the town center of Porto-Vecchio, this little hotel has small rooms, with an average comfort and services. No refrigerator in room and improvable cleanliness. We had only one baggage each, but was difficult to find space for our luggage. But breakfast was amazing!! Served on the 6th floor terrace, with a quiet view on the port, for the high price of 15 euros it offers an excellent choice of food and beverages, with friendly and active staff; it was the best moment of our stay in Porto-Vecchio.
We stayed in the hotel for a couple of nights during a tour of Corsica. It was without doubt the worst hotel we stayed in and at twice the price of any other hotel was very poor value for money. The breakfast content was very good, however they only had one member of staff to do everything . I was a bit poorly on the first morning and my husband asked to take a coffee from breakfast, but was very firmly not allowed to do so. Of course I would not have needed this if there was a hospitality tray in the room as described in the brochure and in the in room information guide. Don't be taken in by the great views - our room like many others looked onto a wall and was dingy and small. Maintenance was poor - the heater was off the wall and the bath had the wrong size of plug - the receptionist tried advised that the last guest must have stolen it - really then why change it for one that does not fit. at 240 euros per night - they could have tried harder , Left with the feeling that the owners had little consideration for it customers.
I would actually give his hotel more of a 2.5 rating then a 3. If you are planning on staying in porto vecchio, this hotel is in a great location, not even a 5 minute walk into the city center. It was clean but small, although the size is not uncommon in Europe (similar to a hotel ibis). The bed was comfortable, however a little small for being the largest bed they have (at 5 foot 10 my feet were almost hanging off the bed!) some things that could not be over looked: Internet was regularly not working. We had to call the front desk every night to see what the problem was. Most nights they would say "ok, we'll reset it",however one evening one of the women at the front desk replied, " no, it's not working and I have no idea when it will be working again". In my opinion this is unacceptable for a hotel that advertises itself towards a business clientele. Only one person who worked the front desk spoke French AND a little Italian, no one spoke English. The parking, which is 10 euro a day, is not onsite, it is located at their residence. For us it was a non issue, but for someone with mobility issues or a family with a stroller it would be as the walk back is very steep! The shower in our room also did not seal properly, and after every shower our bathroom floor would be covered in water, which we found annoying. At 160 Euro a night these are flaws that can't be overlooked.
