Perfect room, great location

We were impressed with this hotel and our room (we had a family room - king size bed, plys single with pullout single). We liked the location - along the tram line and close to the train (we had taken TGV from Paris) but not too close to train line so relatively quiet just a 10 minute walk to the promenade, some shops like H&M were along the way, close to convenient fast food chains and to a supermarket if needed, seemed to be a safe area day and night. A/C was perfect (we were advised by staff to keep the window doors of the room closed or it turns off), room had a safe but staff left it up to us to find the instructions and to figure out which set of instructions would work (ignore the ones on the back of the closet door), the woman at front desk seemed friendly although I think that I didn't understand her humor sometimes. Missing was guidance on where to go and what not to miss - a package of information including maps and day trips would have helped us a lot, but wifi was available and reliable.

holiday

We had a break at half term in Nice. It was great. Hotel was in good location and was really comfortable. The one thing I would suggest especially for UK and USA visitors in particular is that they provide full size mugs for tea/coffee facilities in bedrooms. The small disposable cups were too small and flimsy for hot drinks. Thanks.

Lovely hotel

Had a lovely stay. We had a duplex room which was a new experience. The room was spotless, had comfy beds. Faced onto a busy street but we heard very little noise. Staff were really friendly and helpful. Great location. Lots of shops and restaurants on the street. Tram line just outside the hotel. Train station only a few minutes walk.

Great Location to experience Nice.

This was our first visit to Nice, Wow was it good.The Hotel Alba is finely located, all the staff were courteous and friendly, our Room 408 was excellent, the wifi was hit and miss but we're on holiday so not a problem. As Arnie said, , we'll be back.

Great stay and value

First: Best Western in Europe is NOT the same as best western in the US -- in Europe, it is much better. This is a great value tourist hotel, everything was clean, updated, convenient to the Nice Train Station (which meant a bit of a walk or ride on the trolley) to the beach or Old-Town. I would stay here again.

Use express bus 99 for Airport. Efficient and much cheaper than a Taxi.
