An excellent hotel to use when travelling on day trips to Monte Carlo, Cannes etc especially if your stay is short as it is within a couple of hundred metres of the train station. Very helpful and friendly staff who speak good english.

GREAT STAFF

We stayed here 2 nights. We arrived late and were warmly greeted by a female receptionist, and the same warmth and hospitality continued during our short stay. Friendly staff. David at the front desk was very helpful in arranging our airport transfer early in the morning even checking up on us curbside to ensure they would come on time and he kindly arranged for our early breakfasts as we had an early morning flight before the breakfast room was open. Convenient location to train station as well. We took the bus from the airport and it dropped us off less than a 10 minute walk away. Would definitely come back for the wonderful service, convenient location and cleaniness.

very good

I thought this was one of the best hotels I had stayed at in France or any where in Europe, I have great trouble with hotel in Europe not having refrigerator and tea and coffee facillity. this one did and not sure about tea making and I think i had trouble with shower head falling on me in shower. The only complaint really is that the men at desk said we could have lunch box and were going to give it to me but I said I would wait til after breakfast and then there was a girl on and she said I could not have it. We were on train all that day and had not food.

Close to station, budget hotel

Rooms a little on the pokey side. No room to put suitcases. Would have enjoyed tea making facilities. Bathroom needed some maintenance. Quite a walk to old town, but we enjoy walking but realise many people do not.

Average hotel

We have stayed at this hotel for 3 nights. The hotel is next to the train station and about 15-20 mins walk to Promenade des Anglais. The room was small. 2 people cannot move in the room at the same time. But the bathroom was large. We had the "All for you special offer", which included free Wifi, buffet breakfast, welcome drink, and lunch box. Our welcome drink was a bottle of small water for 2 people. :) We had read reviews about the hotel and the lunchboxes but the hotel staff refused to give us the lunch boxes. We have asked to two different people and got different answers. One said, our plan didn't include lunch boxes and the other said, they don't offer lunch boxes since January. And you could see posts about complimentary lunchboxes everywhere in the hotel. I wonder what complimentary means now.

Good Hotel

The hotel is good and clean, breakfast is average and nothing special about the room. 10 minutes walking from the main shopping street. 30 Euro to the airport by taxi and it takes around 10 minutes. The train is less than 5 minutes walk.

Leisure

Comfortable price. Convenient location for travelers. Very short walk (5 minutes) to the train station. Close to restaurants and grocery stores. Staffs are very nice, helpful and very informative. Breakfast was very good and lunch bags provided before we left for our tour was great. I definitely recommend this hotel to everyone.

not too bad

This hotel has great, helpful and very friendly staff. In the morning the free breakfast comes in handy and saves some money and in Nice take all the financial breaks you can get. I also recomend the lunch boxes, also free. The location itself is a little further then advertized, probably a mile and a half from the beach and if I was a single woman would probably not feel safe walking there at night. Also if you're used to American hotel rooms you will find this place a little cramped but all and all considering everything I would stay there again.

Good Value and Close to Train Station

Nice clean room and slightly bigger than usual by European standards. The best thing about the hotel is the staff (particularly Norbert) - This guy made a three star hotel feel more like a four star experience. He is gracious, friendly and very accomodating. One down side was that air conditioning was not working properly the two days we were there. I am assuming that was just a temporary glitch. If not, I would downgrade my rating to 3 stars.

Go down to the waterfront for dining and entertainment - not much atmosphere in the vicinity close to the hotel.
