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!!!
This hotel was part of a deal with British Airways for a three days break. We were warmly welcomed by the receptionist that found a room ready for us as we were early for check in. The room was on the top floor with a little window on top corner of the room facing the town. Even if really small and dark the room was clean and quiet which it was OK for the purpose of our trip, not really advised for long stay guest or claustrophobic people. Also be aware that you cannot use the sink/toilet at the same time of the shower as the water pressure is disappearing. Breakfast was nice with fresh items and bread. All staff we encountered was really polite and professional. The overall for our stay was OK for the short break we had but I would not go back to this hotel if I travelled back to Nice again.
Typical French hotel room where you have to squeeze into the elevator, and into the room. But when you have done that, everything is under control. The room is OK and you are surrounded by bars and restaurants. It is only a short walk to the Sea, and a little longer to the train station, but not too long. I made that walk with a big suitcase. A nice hotel for a weekend with a small bag on your shoulder. Why not stay here and visit Monte Carlo over the day? It is only 20 minutes by train and a lovely view.
Very clean and well looked after hotel. Close to bars and restaurants and about 10 min walk to Old Town and 15 to the train station. 2 blocks from the sea. Easy to catch number 23 bus from the airport and get off just as it turns off Promenade Des Anglais, leaving about a 10 min walk to hotel. Good choice of food for breakfast.
We stayed here for 4 nights. The location is excellent; a stones throw from the promenade, 5-10 mins walk to the old town and surrounded by shops and places to eat. The reception area is smart and the wifi is ok. Our only gripe really was that our room was boiling hot. For the first night we tried to sleep with the window open but the noise was unbearable. So the second night we tried the air con. I woke up an hour after going to sleep, feeling so hot that I had to go down to the reception. The guy said that the air con isn't switched on til may, even though our air con was making a noise as if it was working. I asked if we could borrow a fan and he said they didn't have any but I could have a bucket of ice?! The next morning I asked a different member of staff about a fan and he said he would try to source one for us. When we came back from our day out that day, they had put a fan in our room for us 😊 An area for improvement would be to put tea and coffee making facilities in the room- that was something we felt was lacking. Our room was really small but it didn't matter too much as it was clean and the location was fab.
