Lovely hotel good location

Posted May 19, 2017
This is a lovely hotel. The room was large with nice bathroom and changing room. Plenty of wardrobes it is in a great area, close to shops, cafes and an easy walk to the beach and old town. We had a fridge in our room. Didn't bother with breakfast because it can be purchased cheaper in the cafes. Easy to find from airport, bus 98 and get off at congres /prom. For 6 euros, or you can get a local bus 23 for only 1.50. Great little hotel for our short stay in beautiful Nice. Also very clean, so most complaints.

great stay great price!

Posted Feb 10, 2017
Great location. I had a really lovely big room with a big bathroom and a set of gorgeous traditional shutter doors open out onto a little terrace which was unexpected! The bathroom could have been a little clearer but definitely not a deal breaker! Staff were great, bed was SO good. Definitely recommended.

Very nice small hotel with amazing staff

Posted Dec 5, 2016
Pros: The friendly and efficient staff.
Location: Café Frei is the best choice for coffee - huge variety and styles.
This is a small hotel in a very good location. It is a 5-minute walk from Promenade des Anglais. There are many restaurants within walking distance and the old town is about 5-10 minutes away. The room was quiet and had a small refrigerator. The bed was very comfortable, the bathroom had a shower cabin and a bath tub. The main asset of this hotel is its wonderful staff. Farid and Eric at the front desk spoke excellent English and were extremely helpful with all my requests and inquiries. They provided great suggestions for dining and visiting. The housekeeping was the best ever. From keeping the room spotless and supplying new towels to all the little details (arranging the toothbrush and toothpaste in a plastic cup, washing the wine glass, storing the toiletries in the mirror cabinet etc), Valerie was the most efficient, thorough and organized housekeeper. Thank you all for making my stay such a pleasant experience.

comfortable, quiet

Posted Oct 13, 2016
Location: Because location of hotel was about 5 blocks from Promenade, it was quieter than hotels on the water. Rue de France , with many restaurants was close.
BED comfortable. Bathroom was clean, modern. On some of the walls, paint was peeling. Very nice front desk staff, very helpful. Because the lobby was on first floor, I had to carry luggage up and down several steps.

Our room was very noisy at night , due to the airconditioning unit for the hotel being right outside our window , so we had to keep the window closed . Ironically , the room itself was not airconditioned . No bar fridge on arrival , despite this being listed on our booking form . Fridge was provided after insisting . We enjoyed access to the next door hotel's roof top facilities .

Below average

Posted Jun 26, 2016
Overall a very disappointing stay. Arrived to two very rude receptionists who carried on a conversation they were having instead of checking us in- terrible customer service. When they did decide to check us in we were informed that another guests had a room key of ours (they had checked into our room , didn't like it & were moved.) our biggest disappointment was the room itself- smelt old and musty and was NOTHING like the pictures - very very dated. We decided to bring this up with the receptionist who told us the photos that we saw (which the hotel had advertised) were in fact of the hotels sister hotel the hotel splendid - she said she didn't think the room that they had advertised was part of their hotel. So disappointing and misleading! Cleaning staff didn't leave us clean towels on one occasion, doors didn't close properly ( we found our door open and seen another guests like this too) finally on our early departure (we booked to go back to Paris) we were told we had eaten In the restaurant which we hadn't and were asked to pay almost €40! All in all a disappointing stay and wouldn't recommend this hotel at all!

Homely and good value for money

Posted Jun 11, 2016 on Hotels
Good value for money hotel. 5 minute walk to train, 8 minutes to main St and 5 minutes to beach. Didn't try the breakfast but it smelled good, which is rare for French breakfast as they usually just eat croissants and jam on bread. Room was a little small, but it was comfortable enough. They told us we can use facilities of their sister hotel next door which sounded great. We didn't do this as we spent all our time in Nice.

Very Good Value

Posted Feb 2, 2016 on Orbitz
Well located, very clean, with larger rooms and comfortible beds. Match that to very reasonable prices and you have a continued winner. We have spent a total of nine nights there over a period of three years. It continues to be a winner for us.
