Best Western Alba Hotel

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Nice is an expensive city, and this seemed to be the best option we could find. Rooms are a reasonable size and clean. We came for a wedding so didn't have much time to explore the area but there was a nearby fresh fruit market on Friday and some nice places for lunch. Taxis can't come on this street but we called them to the nearest corner less than a minute walk away. Staff are great- we came home late one evening with one member of the group quite intoxicated and the duty receptionist made a coffee and came to check all was ok.

We stayed 5 days May 5th through May 10th 2017 at room 209. The room was very clean and comfortable. The bathroom was clean and spacious. The staffwas outstanding specially Laura and Amedeo very helpful with directions and always eager to please. The location is great close to the train station 10 minutes walk, the tram stops only few feet from the hotel maybe 3 blocks and Jean Medecin avenue is full of stores and restaurants. Its about 15 minutes walk to the Old Town but if you take the tram is only few minutes away. We had breakfast every morning at the hotel. The breakfast was great sausages, scrambled eggs, fruits, cereals and milk, orange juice and croissants and jellies and many more. The sweet lady that works at the breakfast room was very nice !! Overall if we go to Nice again we will stay in this hotel for sure !!

Stayed here for 3 nights and it was perfect. Great location right in the centre of Nice. 5 minutes walk to the main train station for easy access to Cannes or Monte Carlo. The room was clean and tidy. We had free wifi. The staff were lovely and were really helpful with information about getting around Nice, bus stops, train journeys etc.

The hotel is located in the middle of the shopping area on the tram route and very close to the train station. It is about a 5 minute walk to the old town and beach, so a fantastic location. The hotel is nice and the rooms are tastefully decorated However for me, the central location was a slight issue as our room faced the road and while there are no cars, the trams and people are very noisy. So I had very little sleep during our 3 nights. Furhtermore, our room was on the first floor opposite the breakfast room which became quite noisy early in the morning. If the outside noise doesn't worry you, I would definitely recomend this hotel, but I suggest you ask for room other than the first to avoid the breakfast area.

We stayed here for 7 days beginning of May and i would like to thank all staff for their warm service. ( special thanks to Malika) Hotel is located in city centre and close to almost everywhere you want to see in walking distance. I would highly recommend this place to stay those who is planning to visit to Nice.

The hotel is well located only a short walk from the train station and only a slightly longer walk from the old town where many restaurants and bars are located. The rooms were clean, wifi is free and the breakfast selection good. My only gripe with the hotel is the lack of air conditioning in the rooms. Air conditioning units are present in the rooms but upon questioning the reception staff we we were told that it was too early for it to be switched on. This left the rooms unbearably hot, as outside temperatures during the duration of the stay were around if not in excess of 20degC. I would recommend that air conditioning is available at least from the month of April as non locals from cooler climates may struggle.

The location is excellent. 5 minutes walk from the train station. Staff are friendly and speak good english. Our friends booked with a different website and had free breakfasts. We had to pay 13 euros each..

We stayed here for 5 nights over Christmas. Pluses: 1) Excellent location right on Nice's major shopping street 2) Free strong wifi 3) Quiet, clean, secure 4) Excellent staff- they were quick to help us with bus stop closures, empty coffee kits, etc 5) In-room coffee and tea kit 6) Fairly recently remodeled, but in a lovely old building with nooks & crannies, and a grand staircase 7) Very near a large Monoprix grocery 8) Fridge in room 9) Tram is right out front Minuses: 1) Breakfast not free; do not spend 13 euros, there are lots of cafes nearby 2) Not a ton of outlets 3) A bit far from Old Town and the Promenade Anglais (about 3/4 of a mile). I would have preferred to be closer 4) Long walk to Port bus stop, where the #100 runs the Inferior Corniche to Monaco overall, recommend.

The reason I chose Best Western Alba was the ideal location near the railway station. The hotel is situated on busy shopping street Avenue Jean Medecin but can offer quiet and peaceful place during your stay in Nice. Reception personnel were very helpful during my stay. Almost all important sights are within walking distance from the hotel.

I stayed in this hotel for four nights. The hotel is close to the train station. It is also fairly close to the Chagall museum. My room was on the 4th floor and was a normal small sized for Europe, but clean and new looking. There was free wifi and the TV had BBC and CNN channels. The staff at the front lobby were very friendly and helpful. There is a Monoprix store not far away to get and food or other items needed. My rate was very good, but it did not include breakfast, which costs Euro 13. The old town and beach were a good walk away, but not too difficult or too far. There were a few good restaurants in the area and many more in the old town. I would use this hotel again on my next visit to Nice.
