Great Place!

The Hotel Massena was very clean, the rooms were nice, and the hotel was in a great location. The old city was just a few blocks away. The hotel staff was always very friendly, too. I would definitely stay there again!

Don't eat breakfast at the hotel. There are so many lovely little cafes around that are much cheaper for a light breakfast--and you get to sit outside and people watch while you sip your cappuccino!

Perfectly situated for central Nice

Booked the Romantic Package for my wife's 50th - the hotel arranged a charming room, champagne on arrival and rose petals around the room. The staff were polite, friendly and helpful (the doorman knows all the best that Nice has to offer). Breakfast facilities were a little cramped but all fresh and plenty of it. We will, without a doubt stay here again.

Great location for Christmas in Nice

The staff was all very helpful and spoke perfect english. All the major pedestrian areas are within walking distance and the tram is only a block away. Couldn't have been happier

The rooms come with a mini fridge and Monoprix is a short walk up the main boulevard. If you are going to be staying for several days it is worth a trip to stock up on groceries and cokes

Good value; great location

I had only one night at the hotel. It is very centrally located just off Place Massena by Galleries Lafayette. The room was small but very clean, older. For the price it was a great value.

Many places to walk from this hotel either on Rue Massena or go through the plaza and toward the fountain on the other side and enter Old Town.

Not What I Expected for a 4 Star!!!

At first glance, the hotel seemed pretty decent. The lobby was clean and the bar area was nice. The front desk personnel were barely friendly at the minimum, but did speak English so that (at least) was a plus. The room I stayed in was terrible. Very small room with little to no room for luggage or walking. The view was an interior courtyard view and whenever I took a shower, had to open the bathroom window and half of Nice' could see my junk!!! It was a double bed, a tiny fridge and a tiny desk and that is it!!! Bathroom was tiny and EVERYTHING was outdated. I travel the world and this is nowhere close to a four star and especially for the outlandish price. My flights got cancelled due to the volcano in Iceland and I went to hotel Anis which has a three star rating and was WAY nicer and only sixty five per night. The price for the Massena is outlandish and would NEVER recommend this hotel to ANYONE. Once I found out that my flights were cancelled back to the U.S., they didn't even offer me an extended stay, instead, they shuffled me out of there as quickly as possible to jack up the rates for other stranded passengers. They should be ashamed! I know I am from the U.S. and our rooms are always bigger, etc, even at a Motel 6, but this room was terrible. I travel to Paris, Zurich, Prague, Florence and Vienna while on this trip and none of the other places I stayed in were even close to the monstrosity of this hotel. NOT a four star - MAYBE a two star!!!

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

La Luna Rossa is a restaurant right around the corner from the Hotel and is a very nice restaurant. Highly suggest it. There are several places to eat around the hotel and should NEVER get their breakfast, it is far too expensive for nothing. Just don't go to this hotel at all!

Near beaches, shopping, and old city. A little noisy due to traffic.
