Average customer service

Staff at the reception were nice and helpful. On the other hands staff who clean the room not that great. They dont say hello, the room was not cleaned properly, even found one day the bed not done they only put the top correctly but underneath all was undone really worng. The carpet was dirty too and they did not clean the toilet floor either. and one day did not refill the tea bags.. At breakfast have had a product which was off checked the date and date was valid till 2016 when said that to the lady staff at breakfast she did not apologised for almost poisoning me and said it does happen sometimes while they been delivered they might have a hole on it. the heather in the room was not working at all and this is winter times you would expect it to work. the room tag for asking either to do clean the room or to not disturb was not clear to decide which side to put it on nor it did hold in place. they is certainly room for improvements but overall it was ok not the greatest but ok. at least if they improved the cleaningless that would be good.

A little bit of luxury on a backpackers budget

The staff were very friendly, welcoming and more than happy to help us, from providing additional towels to printing off our boarding pass for our flight. The hotel is well placed near the train station and tram stop and also easy access to buses is just down the street. It is only a 15 - 20 minute walk to Old Town and the beach. The amenities were lovely. After staying in hostels for almost 3 months, it was nice to stay somewhere that was so clean and so comfortable. I have since joined up with Best Western Rewards as I intend on staying at more Best Western hotels in the future. Would highly recommend.

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.

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.

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.
