Albert 1'er Hotel Nice, France

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Booked at short notice for a long weekend. The buses from the airport stop almost outside. The 98 bus is 6 Euro but if you get the free shuttle bus to terminal 1 you can walk out to the main road and get the 52 which is 1.50 Euro for a single trip or buy a longer ticket; see below. There is a small lift. We did not use the additional breakfast as it was 12 Euro each. There is a coffee shop next door which serves freshly squeezed orange juice and fresh coffee at a good price. It is two minutes walk to the stone beach and five minutes walk to the start of the old town and the nearest tram stop. A solo card is 1.50 Euro and lets you travel on tram and busses for 74 minutes (but not a return journey). You can buy a day ticket for 5 Euro and a week ticket for 15 Euro. The lift up inside the tower to the castle is now free.

Nice clean room, friendly staff, average facilities. However this hotel is in a great location near the old town and the promenade. Reception staff were excellent. The city tour bus goes from right outside. I recommend that if time in Nice is limited.

Tired room with fantastic views. Some furniture upgrades would surely bump up the quality of this tired little hotel. The Housekeeping also needs improvement. There was a weird stench in the hallway, almost like sewage spills. Other then that, great views (if you paid for it) and Super convenient location!

First time traveling so late in the year to Nice and was pleasantly surprised with the 22-24 degrees max. Was there specifically to visit the Eileen Gray house in Roquebrune which was amazing!!! Fantastic location (garden view )as stated in previous reviews. I was on the 4th floor and tbh when I saw the room I was a bit worried at first when I saw his close the bed was to the door which opened out onto a tiny balcony. The door didn’t lock at all (see pics) and as at times I sleep walk I really was afraid of getting up in the night opening the door and falling down from the balcony. I spoke with the very nice receptionist who suggested I close down the electric shutters at nights which I did but I would worry about this balcony if there are children in the room. I do believe it is a safety issue and should be reviewed by the hotel. Slept really well ! Bed was so comfy!! Shower looks like it’s new and was a pretty large walk in space. Had breakfast one of the mornings and it was very good ...professional and very helpful staff assisting when necessary. Beautiful views as well. Room is dark and pretty small but it’s the location that matters in my opinion. Btw there is a late night(2am close) salsa bar right next to the hotel but this did not-effect me as I was overlooking place massena . Merci

This hotel is located at a stone’s throw from the Mediterranean Sea on one side and Place Massena (tourist attraction) on the other. It was a small room with three single beds for three of us. It had a small balcony which offered beautiful views of the French Riviera. Airport shuttle had a drop off point merely minutes from this hotel. Very good location!

Albert 1er is a short walk to Cours Saleya, Place Massena and the Promenade des Anglais. My room was on the 5th floor with a wee view of Place Massena. Room 514 is located in a quiet space, has a great bathroom and it has lots of storage. The housekeeping team kept the room clean each day and Maya, the one in charge of the breakfast room was the best staff member--she was consistently bright and cheery every morning. She made my day everyday of my stay. The breakfast was delicious, substantial and offered variety. The location was excellent---it is closed to the bus stop where we took buses on trips to Saint Paul de Vence and Grasse. We took the tram from Place Massena to get to the train station to go to Ventimiglia. Great restaurants are within walking distance. Cours Saleya, my favorite area, is nearby. For years, we stayed at a hotel on rue Massena, a pedestrian only street, but the street was always packed with people and noisy. It is quiet where Albert 1er is. Quiet does not necessarily mean it's boring or dull. It's just perfect for me.

The hotel was apparently recently renovated, and the rooms have a modern touch to it. The location is the best in nice, right on the edge of the beautiful old town and two steps from the (rocky) beach. The breakfast is poor and I believe it's not worth the price. The Wi-Fi works fine

The hotel is nice and clean. Our bathroom was very big compared to the room itself. But for a city trip is was perfect. The location is perfect. It’s right in the center and you can reach everything by food.

The location is perfect. The bus no 98 from the Airport stops right outside so it is 6€ each. You are by the tram, a minute or two from the promenade, overlooking the magnificent jardins, a few minutes from a tram stop and at the hop on hop off bus stop. Also you are five minutes to the old town and a similar distance to the new town. So walking to the attractions or using the bus, tram or train are all very easy from here. On arrival it looks innocuous but the staff on reception and for most of our stay were exceptionally helpful and courteous. One evening my wife was told off for requesting additional tea bags and a small carton of milk for our bedtime drink as the maid had not left any and we were then told it was only a welcome gesture....sad because other days tea and coffe/ milk had been replaced. The hotel is clean, parts recently renovated and it is comfortable. Some rooms have a se view, some a garden view, we had both in a quirky room that was almost triangular/ flat iron in shape . It is good value, breakfast at 12 euros is plentiful help yourself style which we used once. Would we stay again....certainly

This is a basic but clean hotel in a great location. I would happily stay again. Small room. Good shower. Friendly staff. Good sleep. A very small elevator for maybe 2 or 3 people. Nothing to complain about. I had a nice view over the park. I tried to get a late check out but no luck.
