    About

    The hotel San Carlu Citadelle was built in 1970 on the ruins of the house of Napoleon’s child minder, facing the citadel ramparts, two steps away from the old port Tino Rossi. The hotel proposes you since January 2011, 23 rooms with sea and citadel view completely restored, contemporary and comfortable (photo entitled "double room" or "suite" on the site). Because of its location, the hotel have an exceptional view on Ajaccio’s citadel which first was a simple fortress built by the Genoese during the XIIve century. Then in the XVth century it was transformed into in a real fortress as in Calvi, under the supervision of the same architect. The hotel could not be better located for a perfect discovery of Ajaccio: in the heart of the historical quarter, the most animated of the city, 50 meters from the beach, surrounded by restaurants and cafes, shopping streets, two steps away from the casino and night clubs, the central market, as well as all the high points of Ajaccio’s history (Emperor’s house, museum, « cave Napoleon »,…) Our hotel is at the immediate vicinity of all the great business and administrative centers of Ajaccio, which is the administrative capital of Corsica, thus a perfect location combining leisure and work, having your professional meetings at walking distance: the Regional Assembly, the Prefecture, the City Hall, the Conseil General, the Bank of France, the main agencies of all major French banks,… In the heart of the Imperial City, facing the XVth century citadel, the San Carlu hotel of Ajaccio will seduce you by its exceptional location, but also by the conditions of your stay, by the kindness and the availability of the local staff dearly committed to this historical hotel of Ajaccio old city, and by its comfortable rooms. The hotel doesn’t have a private car park, non the less at 150 meters you will find an exterior paying car park and a paying covered one also at 150m.
