Stunning location at the entrance to the Restonica valley. Beautiful outdoor terrace, with views of the valley and rock pools below (which you can access by steps down from the terrace). Rooms are functional, a little dated, but that adds to the charm. Wide selection of food for breakfast, with some nice home-baked goods. Loud banging doors in the morning...

this hotel is located in the Restonica valley about 2 miles North of Corte. The rooms are large and modestly furnished. The hotel is on the banks of the river in the Restonica valley. Ample outdoor seating with nice views. Swimming Pool in summer. No restaurant; breakfast service only. Friendly owner.

This is a basic but comfortable hotel doing B & B but no evening meals at the time of our visit. Our room was spacious, en suite and had a fridge in the small kitchenette. The outside space is well provided with tables and chairs and drinks, ice creams etc. are available during the day. They will also provide picnics...

Our room was large and well-appointed. The bed was comfortable and the shower and the wi-fi were excellent. It was helpful that the room was air-conditioned. We also had a small terrace with a lovely view of the river and the mountains beyond. Breakfast was a modest buffet that reminded us of staying in much less expensive hotels, though eating...

An absolutely stunning location. The upstairs rooms and the terrace overlook the river. Open the windows at night on the large comfortable bed and the rushing sound will put you to sleep. Could not be much closer to the Restonica hikes and is away from the difficult-to-park-in Corte. However, Watch out!!! Look at your bill. The proprietor (the man) tried...

We ended up staying here because the nearby Hotel Les Jardins De La Glaciere decided to cancel our reservation without telling us - but at least they were nice enough to call Hotel Arena to secure us a room. And in the end it worked out perfectly. Hotel Arena is very quiet, sitting next to a pristine river with stairs...

We stayed here for 2 nights. Hotel is nicely located in the valley of Restonica just by the river with very clear water. It does not look very appealing at first from the road but you have to get down to the reception and restaurant to see a nice surrounding with pine trees and the river. We had a very...

For: By Restonica river, with beautiful terrace looking over water's edge for drinks or breakfast. 2km out of town, with short walk to excellent restaurant at the Auberge di Restonica. Good shower. Extensive choice at breakfast, although poor coffee. Against: Rooms (non-fridge) are cramped and slightly down at heel, although very clean. 2km out of town, with only nearby restaurant...

This hotel is a 30min walk from the centre of Corte or a 2mile drive if you have a car, which is advisable to really enjoy Corsica. The river Restonica runs right past and is gorgeously loud. It's a 15Km drive up the valley to the end of the road and a carpark (5E per day to park if you...
