Recent guest reviews

Great location for early flights from Nice Airport. Convenient location and excellent service.

You're far from the action of Nice, but you're conveniently located right near the airport... Perfect for one night, if you have an early departure or late arrival and just need a place to crash before or after heading into town... Small but clean and quiet and functional, not fancy... Helpful friendly staff... Would stay again...

The shuttle came quickly. The staff was helpful. We stayed one night.

I stayed one night at the hotel prior to leaving on a very early flight. The hotel was clean, quiet and extremely convenient. However, the restaurant food was just ok from a quality stand point - portion sizes huge.

Just a quick sleep before an early morning flight. A short walk to the terminal 1 or use the free shuttle.

OK, it's by the airport, and the best you can do in this forlorn part of Nice. You are stuck out there because buses stop running at 9 PM and you cannot count on getting a taxi. I have had to walk a couple of times from touristic Nice to get back to these airport hotels. We had a deluxe queen room, nicely and cheaply appointed, sort of an Economy Plus feel. The hotel restaurant (and you are stuck with it) is definitely like economy class airline food served in an absolutely plastic ugly room. It is still your best bet compared with the next door IBIS Budget or Campanile.

Very basis for the price and resturant staff was very rude I will not recommend this hotel.

I stay at this hotel a dozen or more times a year. the closest to the Nice airport so for early flights its perfect. I have actually walked to terminal 2 from the hotel on several occasions in a pinch.

Just had our second visit to the Novotel Arenas. The room was exceedingly comfortable, clean and attractive with a view of the airport. We had a one-night stay before flying out of Nice next day and the hotel provided what we needed. It is tricky navigating a car to the hotel location without clear understanding of the road layout in the area. The area lacks neighborhood restaurants and the best choices are hotel produced food. Good access to buses travelling to historic area of city.

Mediocre hotel in regards to entities but very clean, and nice stafd

The hotel is within easy walking distance - 7 or 8 minutes - from Terminal 1 at the Nice Airport. It's a good business class hotel for those wanting to be near the airport.

We arrived at 11:30 PM the shuttle picked us up quickly. The staff was good and we enjoyed our 12 hours at the hotel.

Conenient location to the airport but in the middle of nowhere.

It began with a warm welcome at the airport and continued with all the staff. Certainly one of the cleaner hotels that I have experienced. Extremely conveninet and relatively close to the town center. Rooms are spacious and quiet, notwithstanding that my room was 1 st level with the Promenade just out the window. The bar and restaurant provide very nice refreshments and food. Except for Hotel Negresso, this is where I would stay in Nice.

Even though planes took off almost across the street, it was absolutely quiet in our room. We felt that breakfast was over priced at 30 euros for two, but there was a large variety of pastries, cereal, fruit and truly awful scrambled eggs and mushrooms. The carpet in our room needed a good cleaning, but the bathroom was very clean. It was also convenient to have free shuttle service to the airport. Staff couldn't have been more helpful in helping us find the bus stop into Nice, but a reminder that most buses stop running at 9PM would have saved us a long, long walk from the port area. I would stay there again, just eat someplace else.

Very handy to airport. Just about what you'd expect from a reasonable chain hotel. My only complaint would be that I asked for a non-smoking room and the room had obviously been smoked in previously.

This was the final hotel on a 3 week travel and it was a great place to spend our final night. Dinner at hotel was great - as we were craving a Chesseburger and fries and they delivered!

Good airport location, convenient shuttle to Nice airport. Has no obvious and easy parking, though you find a parking garage (expensive). Tip, if you have a rental to return, do it the night before leaving. There is one good restaurant and rooms are of a good size and comfortable. Free and paying internet access levels. Don't pay: you'll lose 11 Euros. That thing doesn't work, but it's not Novotel's own.

My friend and I needed a hotel close to the airport because of an early morning flight. There is a hotel van that takes visitors to and from the airport which is very convenient. The staff was friendly and helpful. We had a very nice dinner in the hotel restaurant. The room was neat and clean. The price was great for the value. It was perfect for my needs.

Hotel very convenient for early airport departures, but otherwise isolated with no nearby restaurants or other facilities. Bus service to downtown Nice was slow and difficult. The buses are very crowded. I had to stand for the entire trip -each way. Taxis are available, but the fare between the airport and downtown is very expensive based on the fairly short distance involved. I complained on my morning of departure about no hot water in the room and the desk clerk suggested that having to shower and shave with cold water was really my fault since I could have asked for a different room -not really an option if you are pressed for time and have to catch a flight. When I suggested that I believed this problem was the hotel's fault rather than mine, I did get a rather reluctant (and feeble) apology. The hotel has a published policy to the effect that if you aren't satisfied then you don't pay. I believe this is probably why the staff did not want to acknowledge any fault or accept responsibility for the lack of hot water. I would not stay at this hotel again and do not recommend it to other travelers.
