We visited this hotel as part of a group. I had seen negative reviews and was expecting it to be an unpleasant experience. It wasn't the best but it probably won't be as bad as you expect. Pros - - room had a nice balcony and mini fridge - clean room. - accessible within nice - multilingual staff Cons - - staff were often lazy or rude - incredibly loud and hard to sleep - management was incredibly badly run, some rooms overbooked resulting in friends having to move to another hotel.
Despite reading the negative reviews of this hotel, I still decided to go ahead and book it for a long weekend in Nice: I'm glad I did. When I go away on a short break, I just need somewhere to sleep and shower, as I do not go away to sit in a hotel room. I just wanted somewhere reasonably priced and central, and no other hotels could compete on these grounds when I made my booking. The location was perfect: just around the corner from the central train station (where the airport buses also stop), within a five minute walk to the main street (from where you can catch a tram), and about a fifteen minute walk to the Old Town. While my room was a little dated (expected at this price), it was clean and had pretty much everything you would need. The bed and pillows were really comfortable and cosy (so much so, that I got up a bit later than I should have both mornings). As for the staff; they were pleasant and spoke good English. For its price, its a nice hotel in a great city. I would definitely stay here again.
We had a lovely room (nr 406) which it was clean and with a lovely! The hotel is situated close to train station it can take you to Monte-Carlo, there is a nice Chinese restaurant close to the hotel we really enjoy the food from there.
Terrible. Dirty bathroom, bed broken in the middle. The lights went out, and only after 4 calls to the reception and 50 mins later someone came to solve the problem. Avoid it. The Receptionist is the worst ever, he simply doesn’t care at all.
We booked this hotel through booking.com when traveling through and looking for a night to stay before heading to airport. The price was right but would not have hesitated to pay a few dollars more to stay in cleaner and safer environment. There is no parking. We were directed to a parking lot around the corner by the train station that charges by the hour. So, if you have a car this is not the place for you. The cost to park would cancel out any savings. The room was disgusting. There was what appeared to be a blood stain on the desk and there were burn holes in the blanket. I felt as through we were in a shooting gallery/drug den. The area surrounding is shady and dirty. Avoid if possible.
The one merit is that it is very near the rail station. We were in a group of 29 British people. On entering the hotel, a loud argument broke out between our guide and a lady who seemed to be the manager or owner. The bedrooms were on 4 floors, with a very small lift which would take only one person with a large suitcase, or two persons with less luggage. We took the narrow staircase to our 3rd floor room, the modest size not being helped by the fact that there was a 3rd camp bed taking up the floor space. It then became apparent that apart from the basin having no plug, there was absolutely no paper at all provided, not even toilet paper. It was a Friday, and some of our friends said they got no sleep due to noise of people in the street outside shouting and fighting. We left early, so did not have the chance to sample the breakfast.
The staff was not kind and spoke only french. The room was too small and noisy. The only good thing is the location: close to the downtown but I don´t come back again there. Really was a bad experience.
We were looking for a budget hotel to spend a couple of nights, prior to our Mediterranean cruise. It checked off pretty much all of our "boxes": quiet location, near to the downtown core, within walking distance to transportation, trams, sightseeing buses, shops & restaurants, etc. Although we had to pay for breakfast, it was reasonably priced. When you compared it to what local restaurants are charging for coffee & a croissant, we knew we got a deal😀
We have just returned from this "hotel" and the experience was horrible to say the least. We are still completely filled with disappointment and the thought of the hotel still fills us with disgust. When we arrived at Hotel Azurea the first day they had given away our room and the hotel was fully booked. So instead of giving us the room we had already paid for they sent us to a 2-star hotel across the street where we had to wait for a room. We were given a tiny room without any decor. It was not possible to check in at Azurea until 12 am the following day. When we went to check in the following day we had to wait 45 minutes in the reception. The standard of our room was not at all as could be expected. The drains were disgustingly dirty and several of the bathroom installations were worn down or in some cases even broken. In addition to this the refrigerator was gross and partly disfunctional. For this see photo documentation. Furthermore, at no time during the stay did they bring us fresh towels. On day 2 they left us with our used towels from the floor. And on the third day they had taken our dirty towels without giving us any new ones. So we were all without towels. In addition to this we had to go buy shampoo in the middle of the night because the hotel did not offer any shampoo. Additionally we had to take cold showers because there was no hot water at any point of your stay. Our bedcover had seriously never been washed. It was so disgusting that our fingers got all dirty by the slightest touch of it. There were several holes in the towels, walls and doors and the sound isolation of the room was nonexistent and we could even hear the zipping and unzipping of suitcases in adjacent rooms. This hotel should have closed a long time ago and our experience with the hotel could not have been worse. We wouldn't recommend it to anyone!
Stayed here to then travel in to Monaco. Budget hotel in a less salubrious part of town. However 2 minutes walk from train station and 10 minutes walk from the beach. Hotel is compact, clean and with friendly helpful staff. Our bathroom was small with a tiny shower - couldn't swing a shower cap in it! Towels changed daily which was good. Room did have air conditioning which was a surprising bonus at this price. Free wifi as well. Overall adequate for what we wanted - a place to lay our heads.
