Recent guest reviews

This hotel was ideal for myself and partner, the room was small but very clean. The shower, bath and toilet were all in perfect working order and spotlessly cleaned every day. The reception staff were all very helpful and spoke English. It was a short walk to the sea and also close to bars & restaurants. An excellent hotel.

Booked a few days in advance direct with the hotel. Good communication. The hotel is small, rooms at the back overlooking courtyard are quieter. Breakfast was typical continental but enough choice for us. Our room was quite small but adequate. We found it well situated for 98 bus to airport, Promenade Des Anglais, shopping and restaurants. We walked a lot: to old town, harbour, castle hill, to catch a bus to Eze across town. Nice is a great place for a weekend as only 20 mins to the airport and this hotel was reasonably priced and friendly.

We had a very enjoyable stay. Bedroom small but quite adequate. One small problem was shower room had very badly fitting door thus water continually leaked out into bathroom. Breakfast room also very small, fine at our visit but don't know how they manage in busy periods. Reception staff exceptionally friendly and helpful. Very good value . The location is excellent

Enjoyed our stay of three nights. Booked online, so we were able to get a ground floor room, off the back patio near the fountain. Extremely helpful staff, directed us to great restaurants, even a salon where I got a haircut! The breakfast array, paid for separately, was money well spent, fortified us for our days of walking down to Old Nice and other neighborhoods. Rue de France is only a block from the beaches, so we took advantage of that most afternoons, just sitting by the Med, enjoying the views, breezes, people and the thoughts of dinner.

A really friendly hotel ideally situated in Nice only two minutes walk from the beach and some really great restaurants. The hotel staff were very helpful and nothing was too much trouble. The rooms aren’t fancy but have everything that you need and are clean and comfortable. The buffet breakfast provided us all with sufficient choice over our four night stay. We plan to return!

I would highly recommend staying at Hotel de la Fontaine. We upgraded our room so that we were not facing the road so that it was quieter. The staff were very accommodating of this request. The most exceptional service happened as while we were in Nice our bag was stolen on a train along with our credit cards, cash and passports. We had to provide the consulate with a number of documents to that had to be completed, scanned and returned and the staff were sympathetic and did whatever they could in getting all the documents required to the embassy. Honestly I don’t know what we would hav3 done without them! The breakfast was good with a selection of fruit (great for a vegan). Definitely an excellent experience overall.

Booked a single room for 4 nights stay, Advantages: Friendly & informative receptionist with great English, newly refurbished rooms, good location to beaches, if u book directly from it's official website, €1.00 breakfast is an obligation but with breads, yogurts, cheeses, fruits, tea selections & coffee machine, I think it's a great deal. Disadvantages for some people: small room but equipped with a semi double bed, so bed is big. Tiny shower room, that's all.

As many others have said, Hotel de la Fontaine is a perfect location for exploring Nice. Our room was comfortable and fully served our needs, and the staff could not have been more attentive and helpful. The person managing the breakfast buffet on our first day even made sure I got my poached eggs just right (seems as though I was incapable of figuring out that the directions in English were on the other side of the instruction sheet!). We love small hotels, with personal attention and right in the middle of everything. Hotel de la Fontaine is all that.

We had a very pleasant stay. Room was clean, staff friendly and helpful, location is one block away from the sea, restaurants etc nearby and a short walk to the "old town". We didn't have breakfast included but you can choose to.

Perfectly located, second row after Promenade des Anglais and near to the famous Hotel Negresco. When I arrived there was a very warm welcome by the hosts and during the whole stay the whole team was always attentive and helpful. The room was well prepared and very clean; perfect for a short sightseeing trip. For breakfast you can make a choice between a small breakfast or a buffet. I only tried the small breakfast once; this was ok. For the other days I decided to have le petit déjeuner in one of the small cafés around.
