Return Visit

Our second visit to this hotel. A year ago the tv in the room was not working correctly, this year we were greeted with on going lift upgrading - one out of two lifts not operable. Furthermore our original room was right next to this work on the 5th floor. Fortunately we were given another (front) facing room which was bigger and away from the noise. Swimming Pool was also unavailable due to renovation work. Due to change of ownership the wifi log on was a little confusing as this was showing as a member of the Clarion group?

Nice train station has no lifts. Travel with small cases as you'll be lifting them up and down stairs. Goodness knows what disabled people do??

Charming hotel with a good location and wonderful views

They upgraded us to a room with a balcony to celebrate our anniversary which was a wonderful gesture. We were with another couple who had the standard room which was also a good size, clean and also had wonderful views. No ice maker but you called room service and they brought you a bucket of ice, no problem. Very disappointing was the fact that the roof top terrace was closed. This was one of the main reasons I picked this hotel! I can understand the pool being closed however the only way to see the 360 degree views advertised was to go to the bar restaurant and pay for over priced cocktails made by a bar tender who didn't have a clue. Thank goodness we ended up with a balcony.

Perfect Except for Mildew Smell and Damp Exterior Wall

The hotel looks very nice from the exterior and is located in a great convenient area to everything. The lobby and public areas are reflective of a 4-star hotel. The staff is friendly, attentive and efficient. We arrived around noon and didn't think that our room would be ready, but was informed that it was. It was great to be able to drop our luggage off and start exploring Nice. The only problem we had was that the exterior wall of our hotel room (Room #529) was a little damp and the wall finish was cracked and peeling. I didn't want to touch the walls to check for mold because I was afraid the finish might fall off. There was a pretty strong mildew smell in the room, but when we turned the air-conditioning on and opened the windows the smell would soon dissipate. The walls didn't appear to have signs of any mold visually so we didn't complain and ask for another room, but if we ever stay there again or recommend it to friends, I would definitely request a room that didn't have damp or wet walls. Other than that, the room was roomy by European standards; everything else was clean and worked well. If it wasn't for the smell and the damp walls, the room and and our hotel stay would have been perfect.

Sightseeing tip: Short walk from hotel

The hotel has a great location to restaurants, shopping, buses and trains. The #100 bus to Monaco is less than a block away across the street and takes you to Monaco for a mere Euro per person.

Great for a girlie holiday

We got an amazing deal with Rates to Go, and had a pretty decent sized room on the 4th floor (which had been renovated). The pool on the terrace (7th floor) was ideal, although not many sunbeds but people do come and go. There is a view of the old town, and the mountains, as well as the sea view, and nice breeze. The location was ideal for exploring, only a couple of minutes to the beach front, and less to the shops - it's as good as you can get without being o the sea front. The food at the pool bar was not great, and expensive, but the bar looked much better. The main reception was dated, and we didn't eat in for breakfast (it's actually cheaper not to, and then go the hotel restaurant outside for breakfast).It will be ideal when the whole place is renovated: but probably more expensive as a result.

Good all round hotel

Excellent location at the edge of the old town and very handy for the airport bus stop (98). Only a couple of minutes walk from main shopping areas off Place Massena and numerous good restaurants.Good sized room which was very clean. Friendly and helpful staff staff. Only criticisms are in-room wi-fi which appeared to work intermittently and the lifts which were too few for the size of hotel and were slow.

Hyvä hotelli erinomaisella paikalla

Siisti ja viihtyisä hotelli hyvällä paikalla. Lyhyt kävelymatka joka paikkaan. Hotellissa on tehty remonttia, joten kannattaa pyytää remontoitua huonetta. Meille sitä onneksi tarjottiin heti. Ainoa miinus oli hissi, joita oli vain yksi ja sitä sai odottaa aika kauan. Yleensä turvauduimme portaisiin.

angenehmer Frauenurlaub

Ein Hotel, wo man (frau) sich absolut wohl fühlt und auch willkommen. Sehr nettes und zuvorkommendes Personal. Die Lage ist bombastisch, eigentlich perfekt für den Strandgang sowie auch für eine kleinen Stadtbummel durch die Altstadt von Nizza. Der Bahnhof ist auch noch ziemlich nah.

Vappu Astonissa

Erinomainen sijainti. Erittäin ystävällinen henkilökunta. Ravintolahinnat Suomen hintatasoa. Huonesiivouksen sai joka päivä. Tosin wc:ssä oli siivouksesta huolimatta kitkerä pissan haju. Hissi oli erittäin hidas. Rakenteila oli uusi hissi. Remontin takia rappukäytävä oli pölyinen ja pimeä, joten käytimme ainoastaan Koneen vanhaa hissivanhusta. Hissimatkan aikana saikin sitten tehdä tuttavuutta muiden kansainvälisten hotellivieraiden kanssa. Vappuna julkinen liikenne ei toiminut lainkaan, joten lentokentälle tilasimme taksin, joka tuli täsmällisesti hotellille. Katotasanteen uima-allas ei ollut vielä auki. Se avataan ensi kuussa.
