Recent guest reviews

I traveled with my girlfriend and we booked the Medium room from their website. This was perfect as the Standard rooms, as we saw later, were at the 1st floor near the breakfast area and could've been very noisy during the morning (this is also written on their website). The room was cleaned everyday and was spacious. I gave the hotel 4/5 because there were 2 things we didn't like about the room. The WiFi signal was very low and every time we would come back after a whole day we would have to open the window as there was a damp smell in the room. The location was perfect, central, 5-10 minutes walk to the beach, old town, restaurants, train station (from which you can go anywhere on the coast). Breakfast was served in a small area at the 1st floor and it was okay. Not that much variety but tasty. The reception staff were helpful and explained to us on the 1st night some things about our location (where is old town / train station / beach) and what to do nearby. All in all, a very good hotel with a great location to explore Nice and the whole coast.

We stayed at Helvetique only 2 nights. We were very pleased with the service, location, the clean rooms and ok breakfast buffet. Close to shopping and restaurants, and the beach is only 10 minutes walk. Large beach towels can be rented for free against a deposit.

Great location in the centre of the city, only 10 minutes walk from Old Town and 10-15 minutes walk from the beach. They also have free beach towel hire which was very convenient (we only had to provide a deposit but this was given back to us once we returned the towels). Wifi works well. Rooms were decent size and clean. Great value for money.

Loved our big modern room, clean and quiet. Comfortable bed and the bathroom and rain shower great. The staff were friendly and very helpful.The location was perfect, close to old town, Place Massena and shopping. Would definately stay here again

Myself and my partner stayed here for one Saturday night as we had a short break in Nice. For £55 for the night, we were blown away with how friendly and accommodating the hotel staff were. the room was clean, bed was comfy and for an additional €10 each, we could have had a continental breakfast. Also for a €20 deposit you can hire beach towels. The location is fantastic, 10 minutes to the beach & old town, place massena is only down the road, and the bus stop for the airport bus is literally a 3 minute walk round the corner. I would recommend this hotel to any of my friends and family if they were looking for a good value for money accommodation. I would happily stay here again.

very good Location, only about 10 minutes walk to the beach, to the train station and to the old town. Staff were friendly and helpful. Room cleaned every day and new towels everyday as well. Bus station to and from the airport is also about 10 minutes walk. The price was also reasonable.

We were given the room near the lift and the kitchen. It was so noisy, been awake several time during the night because people were walking or talking I. The corridor. On the other side, the street where we could hear all the traffic. Very bad insulation. Despite warring my earplug, I could still hear all the noise. Definitely not recommend this hotel, disappointed

Hotel was good value for money.. location excellent.. was a bit noisy in room 103 as it was next to the breakfast area. Room said non smoking but somebody who stayed before me was a smoker and it was not pleasant in that respect.

Impossible to define if its good located r not. Near "principal plaza" but far away from train station, beach and port. Small room, comfortable bed and beautiful bathroom. Poor breakfast. But I can say its not so bad!

We had a nice room, handsomely appointed and modern decorated. The the employes were very friendly and helpfull. The location near the mainstreet and nearby the shops is a plus factor.We certainly take this hotel when we come back to Nice and we need a hotel
