great hotel at good price

the hotel is extremely well located and the staff was very friendly. the room was a good size but i would note it was a bit musty (not enough to be a bother but probably the only negative of the stay). bathroom had just been renovated and was very nice and clean.

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

Money-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

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 Bathroom was tiny and EVERYTHING was outdated.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!!!

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!

Great Location and CLEAN!

Hotel Nice Massena was in the heart of Place Massena, Galleries Lafayette, Avenue Jean Medicin, a couple of blocks from the beautiful sea and Cours Saleya. We didn't spend a lot of time in the hotel, but when we needed a reprieve from the extremely hot and humid weather the room was wonderful; quiet, clean, new bathrooms and a snack bar/refrigerator that we could store our market-bought cheese, fruits and juices. Skip the hotel breakfast that is offered at a hefty price and explore the many sidewalk cafes the city has to offer.

Dining tip: Not Applicable

Skip the over-priced and overly abundant restaurants that line Rue Massena. The food is all the same and it's terribly expensive for a less-than-adequate meal. Head to Vieux Nice and try out the more authentic Italian and Nicoise restaurants.

Nice hotel, but ...

Stylish hotel, nice and friendly stuff, free wifi. The room was ready on time and there was a damp and smelly carpet, probably from a overflowing toilet.
