Relais Acropolis

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Elevator was on half floors so you still had to do perhaps 10 steps with luggage. Room was small but worked for a week. Half an hour walk to the old town and sea front meant I got a lot of exercise! 5 minute walk to a large shopping mall with a big Carrefour and the Nice-Riquier railway station which goes to Monaco and Cannes

My wife and I stayed in this hotel for four nights at the beginning of October. We really couldn't find fault with anything during our stay, and as so many other reviews have pointed out, the staff are exceptionally helpful. The hotel itself is clean and tidy. It is situated in a great location for exploring Nice, and particularly handy for trams and buses. However, my wife and I preferred to walk everywhere and found that most of the main tourist attractions could be reached within 15 minutes. I would most definitely stay here again, due mostly to the location and friendliness of the staff. So, thanks again to all the great staff at the Relais Acropolis for helping to make our stay in beautiful Nice so enjoyable.

My partner and I had a lovely long weekend at the Relais Acropolis. Ideally situated for walking around Nice, which we did rather a lot of, this individualistic hotel is not the most modern and does not have the largest rooms, but the service is overwhelmingly friendly (apart from the male member of staff who told us that 'all the restaurants in Nice are open on Sundays, when they are not) and the room we had on the fourth floor was more than adequate for our needs. Special mention for Audrey on reception. Whatever she has, someone should bottle it and give it to all hotel staff everywhere. Audrey recommended the Influence restaurant to us, which turned out to be our culinary highlight of the weekend, and when she saw me walk through the door of the hotel after 10 pm with a bottle of wine in her hand, she immediately offered to get us some wine glasses. I have never met a more welcoming and friendly hotel receptionist.

We were very pleased with our choice of hotel for our 2 night stay in Nice. The room was clean and very pleasant and the beds were lovely and comfortable. The air con was set to the right temperature and wasn't too noisy. The bathroom had a good shower over the bath, soft towels and the best hotel hairdryer I've come across. We enjoyed the breakfast which we felt was a bargain as we booked it beforehand. The staff were lovely. The hotel happily stored our bags on arrival and departure and also ordered us a taxi to the airport for our return journey. The taxi driver was very pleasant and charged us 30euros which seemed very reasonable.

Great location near local train & bus station. Old town and beach a short walking distance away. Helpful staff and clean rooms. We have just enjoyed a 5 nifgt stay and is our 3rd stay at this hotel. Would highly recommend.

Hotel a bit old and smelly, but clean. Breakfast was good, but coffee was bad. Staff very friendly, and the location very good. We had a big parking nearby-free! which is amazing for Nice. Overall, nice stay, not the best but not the worst.

This hotel is well located in the center of Nice, within walking distance of many restaurants and as such served well for a brief one night stay. However the room was small, had no kind of view and smelt of smoke when we got there. If they have non smoking rooms, something was wrong. We left early in the morning so can't comment on breakfast. In summary, good location but unpleasant, small and dingy room fit only for a brief stay.

The room was small but clean, bed comfortable. Throughout Europe most hotels only cater for one suitcase. Breakfast is included - typically French. Convenient to trams and walking distance to the sea and restaurants along the foreshore. There are many restaurants to choose from on the way to the ocean. Staying in Nice was convenient to train to Monaco and Cannes.

Lovely Hotel with great Location! We had a double superior room as there was 3 of us staying. Stayed for 5 Nights. Room was rather on the small side, could do with a bit more storage space but it was managable :) Very clean, we had our towels changed every day. We also had a breakfast, which u can book when there its €12.00 per person. Basic continental buffet but U wont walk out hungry :). All staff very friendly and polite, nothing was too much trouble for them. They will give u all advice and info which u need. Around the corner is Lidl and shopping centre with massive Carrefour which we had used. 15 minutes walk to old town and around 25 to the sea (slow walking). Grear connection from the airport (around 35/40 min by bus 98). Overall I would definetely recommend this Hotel. Had everythung what we needed. Thank you Relais Acropolis :)

The first room we were in had the bathroom door jammed and locked. The hotel service quickly allowed us to change rooms to the first floor (one flight up from the main lobby). Excellent service. One of my group members got ill and the hotel was graciously helpful in pointing us to the closest nearby pharmacy and got several cups of hot water for her at various times. The hotel staff were all polite and courteous. Hotel was close Toby and easily able to walk to the shopping vendors and outdoor market. Excellent stay.
