Stayed at this hotel as 3 couples April 18-21 and it met our needs perfectly. One of the main reasons to pick this hotel was the location being only 10min at most to the old town and the promenade which it was. Everything was walkable and the main train station was 15min away which we used to go to monaco. All the staff were encountered were very friendly from the receptionists to the cleaners and the lady looking after the breakfast room. Breakfast was a decent enough choice to set us up for a mornings walking about. Yes the bedrooms are on the smaller side but if your travellers like us who are out all day how often are you using your room. All in all this hotel suited our purposes exactly for our 3 night stay.
I have to say I was disappointed in this hotel which really has decent reviews. The public spaces in the hotel are lovely. Our room is nice enough but quite small - if you want to sit at the desk your roomate has to climb over the bed to get to the bathroom. This is supposedly a non-smoking hotel but there is a persistent smell of cigarettes wafting in. The bed is a small double, so if you are used to queen, you might want to request 2 twins. The bedding is nice but the duvet too heavy for the weather and with a duvet it's either all covers or none. The bathroom is tiny and if you have an elderly person or even someone who is not limber like a 20 year old, getting into the shower/tub is really a challenge. It is a very high step in and no hand holds or bath mat on the slick surface. We were unable to figure out the heating or cooling; nothing seemed to work, though the TV worked fine. On a positive note, it was fun to hear a flamenco dance class in progress somewhere up the street. Also, we discovered we're about 4 blocks from the tram which will take you to the Old Town or train station.
Simple hotel with smallish room (though normal for France). Breakfast was simple but adequate. Tasty bread. WiFi works well in room. Friendly staff and fantastic that its walking distance everywhere. Some great restaurants and wine bars nearby.
Good Comfortable rooms, a little bit on the small size but fine when you exploring Nice. V close to old town, walking distance. Superb location Friendly staff Nice garden to sit out and lovely drawing room.
Service was excellent and they have an onsite parking for a fee. It may be easier if you have a small car. Location is great, everything is within walking distance. We did not get the breakfast because we wanted to try different places around the premises.
I stayed at the hotel for a business trip and had two near death experiences. One, being the room card reader electrical wires were exposed. Meaning every time I put my card in the "reader" to turn the lights on I would get a shock. Two, on the first night the fire alarms went off at 3am. As I went to leave my the door handle came off in my hand so I was trapped in my room. I had to get someone to open the door from the outside. Not a nice experience at all. I spoke with the manager at reception at 8am the next morning, who just laughed at the situation and said an engineer would be sent out that day. I returned later that day at 4:30pm and nothing had been done to the room. At this point I decided to move hotels and received a rude attitude from management and no refund on my room. Incredible shocking service and a dangerous hotel. Do not stay there.
My girlfriend and I spent two nights at Hotel Vendome to celebrate our engagement anniversary in Nice. Our stay was so great. The hotel has a sort of "antique glamour", although it is very confortable and properly furnished. It is very well located since it is approximately 10 minutes walk away from the Promenade and 5 minutes from the city centre. The staff is always available and polite. Perhaps, breakfast is a little bit over-estimated in terms of price/quality ratio, but very good as well. I definitely reccomend it!
We stayed in this hotel for two nights and found it to be very noisy, the doors were constantly banging and as a result I had 2 sleepless nights. Would not recommend to stay there. The noise comes from outside as well as it is located on a very busy road.
Lovely location in Nice, not far from some good shops and restaurants, but away from the very pricey seafront. Rooms are on the small side, and quite functional, but adequate. Very comfortable bed, but the construction of the bath/shower area was a little dangerous as it was so narrow. Staff are very helpful. Breakfast is ok - a very small breakfast room which can be difficult to manoeuvre with plates of food etc, but it does the job. Online rates through third party sites are much more reasonable than booking directly with the hotel - nearly double the price of sites like Trivago, even though we had special corporate rates. Would return here.
Reception staff: On arrival she was very helpful and polite. During my stay my flight was cancelled due to an ATC strike, I asked to stay longer as my re-arranged flight was 2 days after my original departure date, his response was 'not my problem, we're likely to be full and you'll pay the rack rate' . I left for Italy and stayed in the Grand Savoia hotel in Genoa for the same as their rack rate. Public Areas: Beautifully decorated Bedroom: Nice view and nicely decorated with a balcony Breakfast: Quite adequate , eggs, bacon, sausage available if you want.
