Recent guest reviews
We stayed for a week, excellent location for bus, train and tram to get around. The room was good, but you could hear the people next door talking and them you, so not private at all. The bed was small and you had a long reach to your side table, which was fixed and could not be moved closer. The staff where friendly and helpful. As for me he overall Hotel I thought it would be bigger. The pictures on Booking.com are deceiving and it is rather small overall, but the rooms are a good size. It met our next show and the price was good, so good value to us.
This was our third visit to the hotel. Good value for Nice, hotel in good location near train station got the airport bus 99 to the station hotel just a few minutes walk away. Can walk to all areas of Nice from hotel, takes about 15minutes to promenade. Also can catch tram. Staff always friendly despite our limited French! We didn't have breakfast in hotel felt 13 euros quite expensive some cafes nearby better value would use again if visiting Nice.
Not only Hotel Alba is situated in the heart of Nice; at walking distance from the train station and Place Massena, but the quality standards are pretty high. A special mention and again many thanks to the Conciergerie Staff, but in particular to the Hotel Housekeeper , M.me Ichrak, for the unique attention to customer care and the special help in solving practical but essential everyday's inconveniences.
Best Western is Best Western, not so fancy, but you know what you get, so no bad supprises. We had a great duplex room, with a small balcony to the backyard. Everything worked fine, and a good is that it was very quiet. Location cant be better for the price, everything within walk distance. Breakfast was a bit pricy, but we found out that it was fair, compared to the cafe's around the hotel. Will for sure stay same place next time.
Close to train station, hotel faces main street and tram line, food outlets are close, beach a 10 to 15 minute easy walk or tram 1 or 2 stops cost 1.50 euro single trip. Hop on/off bus available good idea to explore further especially if hot, but walking is easy. We stayed in room 210 which is roomy, quiet back outlook but has spiral stairs to reach room, can store bags behind front door (on level 2) to save lugging them up. All the hotel staff were very helpful and friendly. Actually it is still a lovely old building, well maintained and with a lift.
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.
