We were here for 3 nights from 9th July, they had just finished the redecoration with only the stairway to paint , a very nice charcoal colour , the rooms are very small, there is a small wardrobe , no chest of drawers , a cork desk , with kettle , walls painted in charcoal colour paint , looked very modern , the bath was huge with strong shower and lots of hot water , good wi fi , small lift , breakfast for 12 euros always seemed a rush , terrible coffee from machine, help yourself from a large red smeg fridge , cartoned o/j, Tasteless cheese , sometimes a good fruit salad, the station was just up the road with a tourist information office, and a great Paul's cafe , (filled baguette and coffee 10 eu ) , the beach a nice 20 Minuit walk, If your here for a short stay touring everywhere this would be a good choice . The boat to st tropez leaves at 9 from the harbour , 65 euros , 2and a half hours each way .pre book .

Stayed in this hotel for 2 nights.. room service was bad. Breakfast is very limited spread nd the hotel staff were not so friendly.. Rooms are small but ok Bed is small Definitely not satisfied ... Wouldn't recommend it

Hotel was in a fantastic location. Only 5 mins from the train station which we used to visit Monaco, Antibes, Cannes. Hotel was very dusty, floors dirty- we stayed 3 nights & the same bits of paper were on the carpets in the hall way from our arrival to departure. Breakfast time was terrible - we were not advised where anything was, we hat to "hunt" for milk & butter. There were containers for cereals which were full on the first morning but the next day they were empty so had to go into the back to get the new boxes. No cutlery was available so we had to clean some used knives & forks. There was a Bain Marie for us to boil our eggs but not enough water in to actually cook them - then no egg cups to put them in. Coffee, tea & milk not replaced in room so had to "pinch" some from the breakfast area. A strange hotel but fantastic location. We have stopped at Best Western hotels in the past but this was was a great disappointment !

Stayed for 3 nights, what a super place to stay. Ideal position about 250 metre from main train station and bus stop from airport. Hotel spotless, room small but had ever thing you needed as you only sleep there, bath room great and shower was one of the best I have had in numerous hotels I have stayed in. Tram line just past the station 2 euros a trip , buy a 10 euro ticket and you get 10 rides. Bus from airport number 99, 6 euro each way, takes about 15 minutes depending on traffic. Boat trip to San Tropez from harbour 63 euro takes 2 1/2 hours with about 5 hours there, well worth it. Numerous places to eat, spoilt for choice, prices not to expensive considering where you are, beer around 6 euro a bottle. Staff at hotel exceptional, very helpful especially Marion. Would definitely stay there again. WiFi good and free, kettle in room, ask reception if you need iron. Overall a little gem.

We spent four nights here on our first visit to Nice. It is very conveniently situated opposite the Railway Station for easy access to surrounding areas. Everywhere was spotlessly clean and the room was compact but adequately sized with efficient air conditioning. We appreciated the provision of a "Welcome Tray" with a kettle so that we could brew up cups of tea whenever we wanted. The bed was really comfortable and the linen crisp and fresh. There was a large en-suite with an impressive supply of hot water at all times. At first we were not sure about the monochrome industrial style, but we soon grew to love it. The atmosphere was relaxed and informal, the staff made us feel genuinely welcome and had really good suggestions for places to visit. All in all, a great experience

The hotel just changed names from BW Riviera to So Co so it's a little difficult to find with no obvious signage. Walked by it a couple of times before we found the doors. It's right beside the Bible Book Store. 2 minute walk to the train station and about a 15 minute walk to the Ocean. It's newly renovated. Rooms are small but the bathroom is a good size. Breakfast is adequate. Bed is comfortable. Most of the staff are great. One of the front desk staff had two default answers to most requests, , "not possible" and "speak to my colleague in the morning". Other than that, overall a good experience. Would stay there again.

My girlfriend and I chose to stay in this hotel instead, after finding our Airbnb in Nice too hot to live in. Great rooms! It was newly refurbished so everything is quite vogue and modern. Traveling to Nice in hot summer, the air con really cooled ourselves down. The front desk was also really helpful in answering all our questions about the city. Will stay here again next time in Nice!

Staying in best western was very convenient to us while we were at nice France for the first time , we've chosen this hotel because we read a very quiet good reviews about it ,near the metro station actually we came from Paris to nice via train so it's very convenient to stop on a walking distance from your hotel and also it's a walking distance from all the hustle and bustle happening in the near shopping areas and like 20 minutes walk from the famous English Walk . The hotel itself was a good one , the hot water was amazing the breakfast was average , newly renovated you can smell the fresh paint, clean ,tidy and not small at all ( not like Paris hotel rooms ) if you compare it to Paris hotel rooms you can easily consider it spacious. The happy hour in this hotel was some popcorn and a cup of coffee which isn't something to consider impressive . Two things we didn't like about this hotel the first one was the elevator and the second one was that we asked two different clerks at the reception area to fix our TV because it wasn't working and both times they promised they will fix the problem and simply they didn't. All in all i will come stay again in this hotel , it was a good experience.

Overall the hotel was lovely, it was in a good location and the decor was really chic and lovely. However, we arrived very late on Thursday evening, being two girls alone, we wanted to let our parents know we had arrived safely, however were told there was no wifi, despite having been assured with our booking that there would be wifi. Another problem was that our room was not cleaned, as we seemed to have 'missed' the one cleaning slot of the day having opted for a lie in (which one is surely at liberty to do when on holiday). The next issue came when we realised the rooms had not been cleaned and simply requested new towels, which had not been delivered to our room and we had to ask for them again when we returned that evening. On the Friday, the wifi seemed to start working in the evening, but now this evening the air conditioning would not work. This was extremely uncomfortable as the weather was 20+ degrees celsius and the rooms are very small. On the Saturday, we were up and out early since we did not want to miss the so called 'cleaning timeframe' only to return that late afternoon, wanting to collect our things to go to the beach and be unable to enter our room as it was being cleaned. The hotel seemed to be very new, some of it seemed to still be under construction (there were workmen on the first floor installing lights) and we were told the hotel had no wifi 'because we are still new'. Despite this, we managed to enjoy a relatively pleasant stay with very friendly staff, it was just marred slightly by the teething problems we encountered. Maybe wait a few months before staying here so the hotel has time to remove its training wheels...

Un grazioso hotel situato nei pressi della Stazione di Nizza. Purtroppo al nostro arrivo abbiamo avuto la sgradita sorpresa di una camera prima di corrente elettrica e con problemi allo scarico della doccia. La camera ci è stata poi cambiata in giornata non senza qualche disagio causato dalla poca professionalità della persona presente in quel momento alla reception. Le stanze sono piccole, forse minuscole ma tutto sommato dotate della maggior parte dei confort. Stessa storia per il bagno. Bisogna muoversi con cautela per non inciampare e rischiare qualche inconveniente. La colazione è invece molto buona, ma in Francia non mi sarei aspettato nulla di meno.
