Hôtel Helvétique

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Stayed here for 3 nights with family (2Adults & 2 Kids ages 8&6) for a short break in Nice. The hotel is in a good location just of the place massena and thus easy to get around the city on the tram and other links. We had a family room which was one of the new renovated rooms. Whilst this was acceptable for the price we paid we did feel the bathroom sink drain had a strange smell coming from it and the room became very damp and humid quickly. We did not complain as we were not in the room much. The staff at the hotel were very friendly and Bruno was very helpful in assisting us on our arrival and throughout our stay. I would recommend the hotel for those on a city break and not planning to spend much time in the room as its location is excellent. I would like to see the hotel continue with its improvements, especially with regards the room locks as these are still key operated and an electronic system would make it easier as at times we had to wait for our key as we did not wish to interrupt a conversation to ask the receptionist for it - we also saw some other guests help themselves to their key from the box behind reception when there was nobody at the desk.

Perfect location for exploring Nice. Place Massena just around corner is a buzz of activity. 10 mins from Promenade and old town and flower market. Train station is a15min walk away but you can get a tram from Massena for 1.5 Euro. Lots of restaurants and cafes at hand either along main streets or into old town. Hotel staff are friendly and welcoming. Hotel is clean and friendly - we were upgraded to a quiet and larger room as we stayed for 5 days. Breakfast was self service style but there was a good basic choice - continental with meats cheeses and pastries. Help yourself to tea coffee and hot chocolate. We would definitely stay here again if we visited Nice.

Great location, very clean, friendly staff. What else can I say, just perfect. The hotel is a 10 minute walk from the Promenade des Anglais. There are plenty of restaurants in the area. I highly recommend this hotel.

Perfect location, perfect service, clean and comfortable room, smiling and helpful recetion! I would definitely stay in HotelHelvetique for e next visit in Nice. don't think twice to book in this hotel! highly recommended!!

We spend four enjoyable nights in Nice at the hotel helvetique! Staff was exceptionally friendly, the room was quiet and nice and the hotel is located very well. Towels for the beach can be borrowed for free. They also offer good breakfast- book it in advance via their website, thats much cheaper! We can definitely recommend the hotel and would stay there again!!

I was travelling alone on a one-and-a-half-daytrip to Nice. I got unlucky with the SN Brussels flight that managed to lose my carry-on bag. This meant I had to find essentials quickly: phone charger, underwear, hygiene. Staff at the hotel were very friendly, showed me the way to the specialised shops, and offered to use their computer and the printer in case I needed to print my return ticket or boarding pass. Very thoughtful.

The hotel has a non-austentatious external appearance which does not do the hotel justice. We visited out of season for just two nights and we really enjoyed the stay. The rooms are very nice, well equipped and very clean. Air conditioning is good, the beds are comfortable, and the reception staff were very helpful. Underground secure parking is available at an additional cost close to the hotel, but the one-way road system needs to be negotiated to get there, for which reception provide a special little map. We will definately use this hotel again for future visits. It is in the centre of Nice and staying here needs no car in order to enjoy the city. Highly recommended, and much better than its budget price would suggest.

Excellent central location in a quiet street 200m from a tram stop. 10 minute walk to railway station for trains to Cannes and Monaco and a 5 minute walk to the seafront and old town for eating not that you need to go that far.

Spend four nights here. Spacious,quiet room on 4th floor. Very comfy bed. Only minor complaint would be that the shower was small. The Hotel Helvétique is ideally situated to access all the local attractions. Equidistant from Promenade des Anglais, the station, the Cours Saleya and the old town. Staff on duty were very friendly. I would think about staying here again if visiting Nice.

It's a 10 minutes walk from city center Masena. Shops, restaurants and beach are all nearby, really great location! Safe, massage place next door has great pricing, room service everyday, wifi is good for 2 connected devices, if you use more than 2 it'll get slower. Rooms clean, comfy bed, equipped with fridge, quiet AC. Only issue is the water pressure in the shower, it'll either be very hot or cold :) it'll take a while to have it in mid temperature. I'll come back again when visiting Nice.
