Steps away from the house where Napoléon was born, this lodging once served as the ancestral residence of Duke Charles-Andre Pozzo di Borgo of the notable Ajaccio family. The chic lobby is distinguished by a swank martini bar, and the modern rooms have leather furniture, flat-screen TVs, and Wi-Fi access. Rooms 112, 211, and 311 have small balconies overlooking a cobblestone alley. Splurge on the presidential suite, which boasts an ocean view. Although the hotel has a small patio restaurant open May to October, there is a room service menu and an exceptional breakfast buffet year-round.
