Recent guest reviews

Hotel Boreal was super ! Centrally located about 1 minute from avenue jean médecin/tram and under 10 minutes from the train station. Beds were extremely comfortable, rooms clean and spatious, staff very courteous. I recommend !

I stayed there were a group from Rail Discoveries, and was pleasantly surprised by my room, which was tucked away at the back, and so nice and quiet. The staff were very friendly, spoke good English, and the room was always clean and tidy. Breakfast is basic Continental style, but plentiful. The only suggestion I would have is for the cereals to come in a bigger container. The poor staff had to keep topping up the small bowls.

The hotel is in a good location easily walkable from the railway station in a side street so very quiet for a city. Our room was small but well-designed apart from the bathroom door. The hairdryer handle was cracked. Good breakfasts although room became very crowded at busy times.

This is my second stay at the Boreal. Always good friendly staff always clean and tidy. A quiet hotel in the heart of the city for me location is everything. The Boreal certainly delivers on all counts easy access to both new and old town. Easy access to transport links tram and train. Like most city centre hotels parking especially in Nice is a problem although plenty of local car parks available. Lots of places to eat in walking distance. Will. Stay again on my next visit to Nice.

The hotel was very convenient for the railway station, the old town and the shops. Situated on a quiet side street, there are restaurants nearby. We had a room on the first floor at the back of the hotel which although small was comfortable and quiet. Breakfast was as you'd expect in Europe. Staff were friendly and the hotel was clean. Would definitely stay here again if we return to Nice.

I really like this hotel! It's in a quiet street just of the Main Street. A short walk to the beach and near the train station. The rooms are comfortable, the beds are comfortable and the bathroom is clean with a nice tub and the wifi works well! The people who work here are also very friendly and accommodating. The airconditiong works well and hardly makes any sound. I liked it so much I booked an extra 2 nights. Awesome place and I'll definitely be back here!

I booked the hotel and then as I found something better I cancelled the booking within cancellation timeframe. They deducted the amount from my credit card did not pay back for 3 months . Only the good behaviour of the HRS portal helped. SO do not do any payments, in case of cancellation you may not get your money back

Visited this hotel with Rail Discoveries. Comfortable and clean room on the third floor at the front. Only problem I had was that I am a light sleeper and one day the men came to empty the refuse bins which had been put out across the road..a lot of bins! about 5am. So if you are also you may wish to ask for a room at the back and also avoid the chatter from the street below if you don't stay up late. Breakfast was excellent with a wide choice, both hot and cold. The staff were friendly and welcoming. There is a lift but it is not very big and so can take a while for a large group to get their luggage downstairs..or up. Very good location for shops, bars, restaurants and tram and station not far away Overall a very pleasant stay and would have no hesitation staying there again.

Superb location easy access to all parts of Nice, room was comfortable up on 3rd floor there is a modern lift the Room had a good quiet air-conditioning system which was welcomed on such a warm night, the bathroom was tight with a oddly angled door but sufficient the reception was warm ,welcoming and helpful the breakfast was simply excellent would use again if in Nice

We visited this hotel along with a group from Rail Discoveries. A very warm welcome by the staff. Rooms were comfortable and clean. Superior rooms equally so. Breakfast was from a wide selection and good quality. Reception staff very helpful. Rooms kept very clean & tidy. Bar serving drinks inside & out very welcome. Handy distance from amenities. Rail Station 10 mins walk, also sea front 10 mins the other way. Would definately return to stay in the Boreal.
