We understand that each Saturday night U Castellu offers traditional Corsican folk music. We planned our stop so as to experience the evening. We were very impressed. The musicians were placed at the end of the dining room creating a very intimate environment. They played through dinner and on into the evening - over three hours. And the quality -... More

I decided to stop off here for a night after spending a holiday a few years ago in the area, and having read previous reviews. It was particularly the music sessions that attracted me, and I wasn't disappointed - a couple of local musicians singing Corsican songs, with contributions from some guests, and even the hotel owner joined in. Wonderful... More

We were going North on the central road and found a place we might like, but there were many barking dogs. Because we had not booked ahead, we ended up stopping at this hotel. Even when we parked, there wasn't much room, which told us it was popular. So, we parked our hideously large Mercedes (junk) car and checked in.... More

We spent two nights at this delightful small hotel located right in the centre of Corsica. Comfortable room, friendly staff, very good food. Not far from several towns but the sense of isolation is apparent due to the mountainous terrain. Located in a beautiful forested area, with extensive walking trails and a nearby railway which would offer impressive views of... More

We stayed two nights in Hotel U Castellu. It is a small multi-story inn with a charming little social gathering area on the ground floor, where they serve food, and where they sometimes have a folk music night. We were there for the music night and it was a perfect and memorable evening, along with the wine and great conversation... More

We ended up staying for dinner and night in this small charming hotel on our way to Ajaccio as we got stuck in the snow in the Vezzanova pass. We enjoyed chatting around the fire place with the owner and the crew. The rooms and bathrooms are lovely. We did not have it but they offer music / singing performances... More

“Our room faced the forest in the back so we had a very quiet sleep. Rooms on the road side might experience a bit more noise.”
  • U Castellu provided an environment of nature with its forests.
  • Nice bright spacious room.

“I'm not sure, but they all seem to be upstairs and a long drag with any baggage. It was a long walk from the car parking to the front door. Not unusual, but for this price they should come out and help you (remember, this was twice what we normally paid for any hotel in Corsica during our stay!).”
