The title says it all:))) Loved the closeness to beach, old city, food store, train & bus stations. Never got info on how TV wirks although I asked several times:( Loved the quietness and lively bacony away from traffic.

Very nice and well equipped apartment, with all kitchen appliances (except oven), clean and sunny, very close (less than 5 minutes walk) from seaside, several shops and restaurants around, easy to find location. Strongly recommend.

I stayed here for a week in a standard studio. Once the bed is in place, there is little room to move round to the table/ balcony/ cupboard but as I was on my own it was ok. As others have mentioned, the table is unnecessarily large which doesn't help. Apart from this, the room is well equipped with good quality crockery, pots etc. Linen and towels were freshly laundered and the accomodation was clean and comfortable. I would have liked there to be a safety chain or similar on the door as you couldn't leave the key in the lock to prevent anyone gaining entry. The safe was difficult to access as it was on the floor of a cupboard. Reception has limited opening hours so I was unable to report the fact that I couldn't get the tv to work. Despite notices, the main building door was often left open which made the building vulnerable. I had not realised that only 3 days wifi was included so I had to pay for the rest of the time. Also, my checkout time was 10 o/c whereas it seemed that those staying for 6 days or less could stay until 12 o/c. Despite all this, this accomodation represents good value for money, is within walking distance of supermarkets, buses, the railway station and the seafront so is hard to beat.

The title is perhaps a little unfair as for the price, no one would expect luxury. The room which we had was as they say in France, un peu juste! Once bed was pulled down and in place, there wasn't a lot of room to move. If it had been a bit warmer and we could have used the balcony, that would have helped but quite why there was a large round table in a small room I am not sure. Everything was clean and bright and the bed quite comfortable. ( the tele was broken but we had no problem getting it replaced). Two specific complaints - the first was the lack of information as to where to find everything in the room - it took us half an hour to find the sheet and duvet cover in a plastic bag under the towels in the (small!) bathroom and we stuggled to locate the cleaning materials. Also, I was concerned that there was no smoke alarm in the room. (probably removed when too many guests burnt the toast). Also, we were surprised to find that we were expected to strip the bed and to take our own rubbish down to the store on the ground floor. Having said all that, the location was perfect for the lemon festival, the hotel was pretty quiet the free WiFi worked fine and we thought it reasonable value for money. (and finally there was an adequate unbroken shower which you don't always get in budget accommodation!)

Good place,calm, clean. Will recomend this hotel to all who like Cote de Azur. ood connection from Nice airport by bus or train. From station just 10 minutes walk. From Bus 5 minutes. Good communication with Monte Carlo and other places of interesting.

The advantages of this place: good, central location. Just a few minutes walk into town and with supermarkets etc. nearby. Very well equipped kitchen. They manage to pack a lot of equipment into a small space. The fold-down bed seemed to be comfortable. We had an apartment for four as three adults - but as others have mentioned the bunk beds are really only suitable for children. Do you really want to sleep in a hallway right outside the bathroom door? The balcony was small, overlooking the street and half the space was taken up by the air conditioning. In a word: fine if you're out all day, but not somewhere you really want to spend time relaxing in.

This hotel-apartment complex is ideal for a visit to the cote- d'azur. It is in the town, less than 5 minutes normal walk from the Promenade du Soleil. The establishment is inexpensive (VERY much so out of season) and affords the freedom and independence needed to enjoy a holiday here. Beds can be added for children. It is situated about 1 mile from the Italian border and there is a little train from Menton station (nearby) into Ventimiglia, where most things are much cheaper, including restaurants. For me, a European in my heart, this is an ideal spot. Try booking online.

Bunk beds uncomfortable and sofa bed not much better. Studio for 4 people a bit cramped even though there were only 3 of us. Smell from bathroom. Arrival outside of reception hours they had a system of accessing your keys from the safe but this was not easily understood from the sign on the door, an email prior to arrival letting us know would have been better

Tip top location. Small space but livable. Comfortable hide abed. French only TV. Quiet when not on Main Street. I've stayed many times here. Close to bakeries and grocery stores. Train station and bus station are an easy walking distance.

When we first arrived to the hotel the elevator was broken. It was late and the reception was closed. Well before coming we had informed the hotel there was a wheelchair user in our group (and that would be me). Our room was in the 4th floor. They didn't bother to call or even leave a note about other arrangements. We had to make expensive phone calls to get a room in another hotel. And they wouldn't even arrange it in one of the closest hotels but in a whole other village. The service was pretty ignorant in general. You had to demand very strongly to get toilet paper, answers for questions or what ever we needed during the week. The reception open hours were too short. The check out time was already at 10 am. When we wanted to use the luggage room after checking out so early we were told it was full and there would be no room for our bags. Once more we had to demand. The best thing about this hotel is the location. If you want to be in the centre of Menton on a reasonable price, it's a good choice. Especially if you don't happen to be a wheelchair user. The room was not very spacious. It made it very difficult for me to move around.
