Hôtel de Suède3.0 out of 5.0

Between us we had five rooms, all very different from each other. Our room had a small balcony with a table and two chairs. The location was perfect, around a ten minute walk to the flower market, with streets of bars and restaurants surrounding the hotel, we were spoilt for choice. The free wifi was unexpected, and yes it wasn't amazing, but it was free! That made it easy to stay in contact with home. The breakfast room on the 5th floor was great. We went all three mornings that we stayed. It is buffet style, so if you're travelling on a budget it was great to fill up and then wait to eat again until the evening. The breakfast was €14 per person, which was similar to prices elsewhere with the benefit of unlimited coffee. Nice itself was quite an expensive place, so take more rather than less spending money. We had a brilliant time at this hotel, the staff were lovely and very helpful. A great budget hotel, with a central location.
A nice hotel with a perfect location in Nice. All the staff i met was nice and helpful. The Wi-Fi was crap though, slow and disconnected all the time. My room was a bit weird, the bed was too big for the room and the bathroom was very tight. Apart from that I was satisfied with everything.
This hotel needs a major refurbishment as the decor is outdated, however, the hotel is centrally located, very close to the main bars / restaurants and to the beach. It is also close to the bus stop, so, convenient getting to and from the airport. The hotel does not have a pool so I would not stay here in the Summer. I went in October so it did not bother me. Our room was located opposite the elevator which made really loud noises every time it was used, this was highly annoying during the night. Additionally, when the cleaners were outside in the morning they kept making loud noises, which was equally as annoying, so our sleeping quality was not great.
The hotel was situated at a great location, just a stone throw from the Promenade. The staff was friendly enough. The breakfast was rather expensive, and felt quite cheap. The room was super small, but if you only intend to sleep there, it was fine and clean. Alas, nothing special but does the trick!
The worst I can say about this place is that the wi fi sucks. In three days it didnt work in the two different rooms I stayed in. I asked about it for the first two days, and nothing was done. I dont think they believed me. I was told to come to the lobby to use it. HOT SPOTS are so 2005! In fact, I managed to use the hotel wifi across the street, facing my room, at an outdoor restorant. So, on to the better stuff. This hotel is in the middle of the shopping district, surrounded by patios and 10 min walk to the old Nice and 2 mins from the ocean. Locations is perfect.
Despite being located right at the middle of restaurants and bars, my room was quiet. The breakfast is OK and its price matches the price in other places in the area so no good reason to take it outside. Two minutes away from the "promenade des anglais" is enough to make the hotel much more affordable. On the negative side, do not expect to work with the wifi. Yes it is free but its quality is also very poor. In case of fire, the security might also be an issue. The hotel obviously results from the merging of several houses, leading to narrow corridors (strangely shaped and levelled) and a small staircase.
I stayed in room 332 on a midweek work trip. This is street facing and I was worried about noise but it was actually fine. I had been slightly concerned by reviews saying that aircon wasn't switched on until May but it was working just fine when I checked in and kept the room nice and cool throughout my stay. Very good sized room too - no weird configurations, plenty of space to move about both in the room and the bathroom. Don't expect frills, no little bottles of toiletries or sewing kits for example. My room had a little balcony with table and two chairs overlooking the street though. Strong and stable free wifi. Good breakfast, amazing sourdough! I was bemused by the signs on the tables warning that you'll be charged for any food removed from the breakfast room. Great location for the airport buses. Gustave V, the stop outside Mcdonalds, takes you there, either the 98 airport bus (6 euro) or the 230 (1.50 euro) will go there. If you get the 230 - which I recommend - it drops you outside terminal 1 and the navette free shuttlebus runs you over to T2. If coming from the airport, get off the 98 at Congres.Promenade. All buses announce and display upcoming stops. Moments from Place Massena. The bakery 3 minutes away (Boulangerie Multari) has great bread, sandwiches and patisserie at good prices. I would stay here again, good location and I had a pleasant stay.
Stayed in a quadruple room for 5 nights. Clean, OK size room, can't hope for more at that price. Ideal location, short walk from the beach, plenty of restaurants and 2 supermarkets nearby. 15 minutes walk to the station and probably the same from the old city. Didn't try their breakfast at 14 euros but we're told that kids would eat free. Friendly staff that seem to speak various languages indicated on their name badge.
As per previous posts the location is great with all amenities close to hand, the staff are friendly and helpful and the rooms are clean and well appointed. The bed and pillows were OK but not great - pillows are always an issue! Didn't take much notice of previous posts talking about the bathroom - mistake when water started running under door having leaked from shower! As for the toilet - it definitely required riding side saddle unless you had incredibly short legs to avoid clashing with the wash hand basin stand. Even with the windows closed there was a lot of noise from the street even after the restaurants closed and the local council collect bins around 3am. Little noise from within the hotel though. Breakfast was pretty good, continental and a limited choice of hot food, OK for a few days at least. There was free Wi-Fi which was a little temperamental. Was it dreadful - no, but we wouldn't stay there again but somewhere nearby instead.
We stayed her for the Monaco GP and travelled each day. Central, clean and easy access back to the Airport. I will stay here again if I am lucky enough to get a leave pass to go to the Monaco GP again!!!
