A terrible "hotel" near Nice beach and promenade
Posted Aug 21, 2015
An old dirty hotel worth half-star at most (announced as a 2-star hotel). Old awful tiles in bathrooms, dirty bars on the window leading to a roof. The bathroom is unpleasant, the tap is unstable and moves, the toilet bowl is like in a closet outside the bathroom. There is a dark corridor and you can barely fit the key into the door lock. Old grey linens and toilet paper, no shampoo, a shower gel was provided only. Maybe 50 years ago it was nice but now... In general, we are not too demanding, but this case is really exceptional. I never met any 2-star hotel in USA in such a bad condition.
No parking, no even way to approach by car to the hotel door legally.
When we left that place, the clerk (maybe he is owner) call for a taxi from a gangster taxi company. For 4-minute drive to Nice Villa train station, he demanded aggressively 20 euro. Sure, no taxi counter was turned on. In Paris, I paid twice less more essentially longer driving in taxi. I believe that the choice of the criminal taxi company is an additional characteristic of this hotel.
However, if you look for a doss-house near the beach and you are ready to spend a lot per night, it will be ok.
