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.
Well for our entire stay..... there was no wifi in the room. It was so noisy at night that the windows would tremble. Breakfast time they wouldn't replenish on time..... Two days the egg had finished. Another day the croissants were not replenished on time...... At the reception it was very unprofessional.
As with other reviews that have been written, the hotel is cheap and suits it's purpose of being close to the station. It is also nearby to the main high street, the tram system and most of the buses pass through in front of the train station. However, the room I was in did not reflect the price I had paid. The balcony doors did not close properly and therefore nights were cold, and the noise from the streets below made sleeping difficult, luckily it did not rain during my stay but it was a genuine concern, as was a windy evening. On top of this, the bathroom was also not up to reasonable standards. The shower head would not stay in the holder, and therefore I had to hold the shower head over my head to shower in the mornings. Also, the toilet leaked when flushed. Other rooms may be to a much better standard, but mine was not.
The hotel is situated near the railway station and in the begining of one of the main walking street - rather comfortable. My room was small, had a little balcony, a little fridge (it was very nice surprise), a shower. It was clean but the water in the shower was rather cold. Also the room had an air conditioner. I was staying for 2 nights, the room was cleaned every day. But the smell in the hotel was rather strange.The man on the reception could`t speake English well, but tryed to help me every time I had asked.
Very good for budget travelers. A train station and a few bus stops are within walking distance. So it's fairly easy to explore Nice or to go to surrounding areas like Monaco and Cannes. There are quite a few shops, grocery stores, bakeries, and restaurants nearby. There's even a mall a bit further away, but it can still be reached easily by foot. As for the hotel itself, the staff is very helpful if you have any questions. The rooms are comfortable, clean, and have all the basic amenities. I didn't have any issues with things not working inside the room. Nor did I have issues with noise levels, but I did travel when there's often not that many tourists around. As far as food goes, there's the option of purchasing breakfast and dinner. In regards to location, the hotel is in a slightly odd area that really only matters if you plan on being out late and walking back by yourself. East of the street is a bit sketchy when it's dark. When I was there a store often sold liquor to a group of men and they would often get drunk and get a bit rowdy. There was also a group of young men that followed my friends and I for a bit when we went out to get dinner one night. They didn't follow us long and their comments were never vulgar. But just a heads up for solo female travelers. The western side of the street was completely find though.
I traveled with my wife and our 11 year old daughter and having read some of the reviews on this site I booked with some trepidation however what I found was a hotel that met our needs. Ok, its not the Ritz but then I never expected it to be. It's true to say that our room needed a bit of TLC and I would suggest that it would be a good idea to replace the beds as these seemed old and rickety, having said that the room (including the bathroom) was clean and tidy which is all we really wanted. The staff were absolutely excellent and if this review were just on them it would have been a 5 without a second thought. This hotel is in a fantastic location for exploring not only Nice but also Monaco and Cannes. The railway station is literally a block from the hotel and both Monaco and Cannes are within a 30 minute train ride. The main shopping area in Nice is just two blocks away and the beach is a 10 minute stroll.We stayed there for four nights. Would we stay here again? Absolutely.
Under new management, the Azurea is now a good and friendly option for a budget trip to Nice. Close to the station and buses from the airport, it is within easy walking distance of the main shopping street and of the old town.
Unfortunatley had to change the room after two nights of not sleeping as a couple have been really loud all night/reception reluctantley agreed to change the room after explaining our son 6 year old could not sleep! very noisy/ otherwise you get what you pay ... Night watchman was friendly and helpful.
for the price i paid, i did'nt expect the negresco. what i did get though, was a clean, friendly, efficient hotel, right in the heart of nice. it's easy to find, just across the road from the station. literally two minutes from the main shopping street in nice& no more than 10 minutes from the beach. for anyone wanting to explore nice & the cote d'azur on a budget, this is a perfect base.,
1 No hospitality 2 Bad rooms 3 Unprofessional stuff 4 Insects on the sheets 5 No facility at all We were staying just 2 days (27-28 of November )in this "hotel", during the first day we just check in, left our baggage and went to discover Nice. At night we came back to sleep, however we couldn't because the room was so noisy, probably because of location, however we were tired and decided to sleep In the morning we tried to reach reception but phone was not working, later on we discovered that there is no basics facilities in the room, but it was totally nothing.... I found on my neck horable bites, all my neck was eaching badly. Me and we friend approach the " receptionist" we ask him what they have in the room there are no iron, no tissues, no any working items and old furniture, answer which gave was amazing he has his big heart!!!! )) My day was done with this answer !!! Then I show to him my neck, he simply told that hotel perfectly awere about this problem!!! I got amazed, they know perfectly about this problem and still continue to check in New guests!!! Then he change our room, which was much better. During the night I couldn't sleep, I felt that something is wrong... I use my phone to see what is going on my bed guess what I found???? Alive insects, running and biting me... I took the sheets and went down, I opened sheets infront of the receptionist, (by the they were still running on it) I explain to him that I want to speak with manager, she told me that its available only in the morning at 9 am, however there were no one from management, even "receptionist with big heart " .... All my stay was horable I dnt enjoyed my trip in Nice still I have this bites which is eaching very badly, and medicine while I have to buy will cost much more than Bill from this hotel. Upon check out I send email to management about my stay... I dnt will they do something or not but I hope that everyone will be far away from this hotel Result of my stay with bites attached Please take care about your health and book another hotel!
