Recent guest reviews

This is a great hotel! The location was perfect and close to everything. It is within walking distance of the Promenade, train station, the old town, shops, restaurants and bars. The room was very nice with plenty of space for 2 people, the beds were comfortable and the balcony facing the tree lined street was a great little bonus. The staff were very friendly and very accommodating. Overall, it was a very enjoyable stay and I would highly recommend it.

We have just returned from a city break in Nice and stayed in the Nice Malmaison Boutique Hotel. The staff were always pleasant, welcoming, helpful and knowledgable. The rooms modern, spotless and cleaned thoroughly on a daily basis. The location of the hotel was ideal, a very short walk to the beach, within walking distance of the old town and the main tourist shops/ restaurants. This hotel is a gem enhanced by the professional team running it and we will definitely be returning soon.

This hotel is in a fantastic location, located half way between the train station and the beach. It is also within walking distance to old town, and easy to catch the train to nearby towns. Room was a great size, even had our own private balcony. Staff were able to recommend some great places to eat nearby and were extremely welcoming

The staff helped make this a very pleasant stay especially Maria-Jose who went out of way to be friendly and helpful , The hotel is very modern in a good location my room on the first floor facing the front was large with good size balcony , also tea/coffee facilities and TV , the room was surprisingly quiet , The breakfast room was bright and well laid out with a good choice of food

This hotel was an easy walk from Nice train station and also not far from the airport. The beach was a 5 minute walk and about 15 minutes to the town centre. With location sorted, now the hotel...the staff were very helpful, pleasant and professional at all times. Check-in was fast and straightforward, the room was perfect size for a couple and had a small balcony. Their breakfast offered a variety of continental and some hot food options which were okay. I would recommend this hotel to all and choose it again.

The hotel seems new , is very clean and nice. The staff is great , always helpful. Breakfast good , many options . Room small but clean , bathroom was big. The position is ok , not far from downtown but ok ...

This hotel is an easy 5 min walk on level ground to the promenade. We stayed in room 19 on the 1st floor, the bedroom was a reasonable size and the bathroom was large with bath and a shower over the bath, not a good room if you have mobility issues. Check in was very good the staff were very welcoming and helpful offering maps and information on how to get around. I can't comment on the breakfast as we ate out enjoying that at the beach.

We stayed at this hotel for a couple of nights in April. The room was spotless and there were plentiful toiletries. Stay we're very helpful and provide maps/directions. The location was great-5 mins walk to promenade. A trip to Monte Carlo is a must. Just 20 mins in the train which goes along the coast with a cost of 15 euros. Would highly recommend the hill walk as the view is fantastic. Some very lovely bars along the promenade, when you walk towards the harbour. Lots of nice restaurants in the old area of Nice. Would definitely visit again.

Arrived and the receptionist could not have been nicer, very helpful. This was unfortunately the only time she would even look at us. Every time we walked through reception we were ignored by her. Room on first floor, was so small. No balcony (when booking I thought my room had a balcony). The bathroom needs to be updated. The breakfast set up is terrible. So many tables in such a small space. Other guests were bumping in to me whilst eating. The hot food selection is poor. Everything is self service including drinks (coffee is from a machine and there is usually a queue). Tables are not cleared and on two of the days we stated, we cleared the table ourself. From reading responses from the management of this hotel to previous reviews that they will and have taken action about poor reviews about breakfast, I fail to see that anything has been changed! Positive, good location, fairly clean. Negative, breakfast (we didn't eat breakfast on the third day at the hotel, we went elsewhere). Very small room, limited foreign tv channels, dated decor, no balcony, being ignored by staff. I would probably chose to stay elsewhere next time, which is a shame as if I like a hotel, I will be loyal and give repeat business to it.

My family including my 2 year old granddaughter spent 4 nights at this hotel. Having read through previous reviews I have to agree that there are cosmetic maintenance issues which need to be addressed and the breakfast is not the most elaborate but if included in your package it is more than adequate. I would not have paid ther additional cost of ther breakfast if it had not been included in the booking. Showering without a shower door is a bit of a challenge and it is difficult to keep the floor dry and I would recommend that the hotel consider fitting shower doors. Having said all this do not be put off in booking this hotel. The hotel is very well situated in a lovely tree-lined boulavard within 5 minutes of the train station and less that 10 minutes ftrom the promenade. The big attraction for us to this hotel and the reason that we will return is the staff. Without exception they were all lovely and made us all feel very welcome throughout our stay and nothing was too much trouble. The attitude of the staff was a credit to the hotel and they made our stay memorable. We booked directly with the hotel and were allocated 2 rooms on the top floor with balconies overlooking the street. The area was quiet at night and I would have no hesitation in recommending this hotel
