    Very difficult to get and maintain an Internet connection. Couldn't use WhatsApp.

    On a road which took you directly into the centre of town. Quiet room. Pleasant outdoor seating area.

    Breakfast was not included in price- that we found out only on check-out. Personnel speaks English very, very weak- mostly it is you who needs to adapt to French, not wise reverse. But that is common in all Corsica.

    Parking hard to find and only accessible after collecting key from hotel. WiFi does not work Rooms are hardly decorated and contain only very basic equipment and no toiletries

    Location of hotel is terrific, close to city centre also it's one of the few hotels in this area with on-site parking. Staff is helpful but do not really come across as friendly, treating you as a guest.

    It was quite adequate, no real problems. Mattress was hard and pillows hard and lumpy. Towels, not white, clean but rather grey looking

    A basic clean hotel close enough to the main old town Centre and harbour. Free street parking outside the entrance was fortunate

    • Leisure trip
    • Solo traveller

    I stayed at the Albon hotel from May 11 through the 16th-. I had a room with a great view of the sea. The room was spacious, the bed comfortable. Though it was only May, I do a lot of hotel reviews and I tried out the air conditioner which looked to be a new modern unit and it worked very well and was nice and quiet. The tv had about 24 channels and great reception. The wifi worked very well with a strong signal and no lag. The bathroom had plenty of hot water. They had a very nice breakfast buffet in a pleasent setting with a nice view of the garden out back. The hotel is conveniently located with the downtown restaurants, Napoleon park, Charles de Gaulle plaza, the beaches, casino and supermarket all within a 10 minute walk. They have a safe in the room, but I don't think you'll need it. Now I've made numerous trips to Europe and I know there it's not expected that you leave a tip in the room , but I often do when I think they've done a very good job. As I usually do, I leave a tip on the bed. Now that money is usually taken, even in Europe, but not at the Albion. On the first day, I left a few euros on the bed and when I returned, I found that money had been placed on the desk. So the next day, I added a few more euros and placed it on the bed. Again when I returned I found the money had been placed on the desk. Same thing happened on the third day. i finally had to track down the woman who had cleaned my room and tell her that was a tip for her. So like I said, they have a safe in the room, but I don't think you need it. But one of the best features of the hotel was the staff. They were very helpful with all my needs such as setting up a car rental. I found out this hotel is owned and operated by the same family that runs the Chez Paulo restaurant right in the heart of the main tourist district. I dined there on a couple of occassions. .

    Room was infested with bed bugs. I am covered all over my arms and back with a severe allergic reaction to the over 100 bites I have from my 1 nights stay. I saw one crawling along my pillow as I left. Room furniture was dated. No shower. Only a bath. When I booked it, it said there was a bath but did not say there wasn't a shower which is expected for all hotel rooms to have in 2015. My friends did have a shower and that didn't work either.

    The breakfast cost 12 Euro and is very very poor and totally cold, fruit salad ice cold. The room and bath was not very clean, it is not possible to shower without flooding the floor before the shower. In wintertime the rooms and breakfast room were not able to bring to a comod temperature.

    Very very friendly staff!!! Good parking space, very very good bakery just ahead to buy a GOOD breakfast, save the 12 Euros...
