CHECK AVAILABILITY
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.Its name comes from the quarter where you can find the hotel: the St Charles quarter, the name of a bishop of Corsica and Sardegna during the XV century. Because of its location, the hotel has an exceptional view on Ajaccio’s citadel which first was a simple fortress built by the Genoese during the XII century. Then in the XV century it was transformed into 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 Saint François, beautiful beach of white sand, 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 in 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 with its exceptional location, but also with the conditions of your stay, with the kindness and the availability of the local staff dearly committed to this historical hotel of Ajaccio old city, and with its comfortable rooms.
