Hotel La Pietra Hotel 2 star
Easyexperts
Route du phare 20220 L'Île-Rousse L'Île Rousse, France
Amy Adejokun Section editor

The main advantage of the Pietra is its unique setting on the Rousse Island peninsula, with a magnificent panorama over the bay. The hotel falls down because it lacks facilities, the comfort is only standard level, its decoration and its architecture lack charm.

    Location 9.84 /10

    Located on the Rousse island peninsula, just behind the ferry park and the large jetty. 5 minutes away from the town centre. About twenty miles away from Calvi and forty miles away from Bastia.

    Accommodation 6.95 /10

    The rooms in the La Pietra have a basic comfort and a simple decoration that seems to date from the building of the hotel: a corridor that leads to a bathroom with bathtub and hair dryer, a 12 m² size room and only just the amenities to deserve a 3* level: telephone, small television, air conditioning and a small balcony. Half the rooms overlook the bay, the other half overlook the Rousse Island rocky relief. The panorama is pleasant and the level of cleanliness acceptable. A safe is available at the reception desk.

    Overview 7.20 /10

    The main attraction of the La Pietra, if not the only one, is that it has a unique location directly on the Rousse island peninsula, giving probably the most spectacular view of all the hotels in the town. Built in the fifties on the side of the rocks, the hotel displays a monolithic appearance and lacks charm, which is only forgotten thanks to its original location. Built on three levels (2 floors), the hotel has a reception area, the common area, a bar and a restaurant on the ground floor. The two upper floors have 40 rooms that can be reached through dark corridors.

    Food and drink 6.95 /10

    The piano-bar and the restaurant are simply decorated in keeping with the rest of the hotel, that is without any personality. Nevertheless, both have bright and rather pleasant surroundings. A special mention for the outside terrace allowing open air eating and facing a wonderful panorama. A simple breakfast is served buffet style. Lunches and dinners are a la carte. The menu is fine, with quite a varied selection of dishes, many Corsican specialities and local wines at reasonable prices.

    Beach 6.20 /10

    There is no beach directly at the foot of the La Pieta, but there is a small area of sand 500 m away as well as Rousse island beach about 1 mile away.

    To know

    The hotel is open from February 15th to November 15th. A car is indispensable.

      • Package deals in août 2013 Posted on 2014-06-03 En famille - 1 nuitée (Chambre sans vue)

        Il faut absolument avoir une chambre avec la vue sur la mer pour que le tarif soit justifié. Hotel correct sinon rien d'exceptionnel.

      • Advantages

        Proche de l'embarcadère des ferries venant du continent

      • Disavantages

        L'impossibilité d'obtenir une chambre avec vue sur la mer n'a pas été très claire...
