Cute and central with great staff

4 out of 5
Posted Oct 14, 2016
I stayed at this hotel for two nights in Mid-September. The gentleman at the front desk was always kind and extra helpful. The room was very spacious and the bed was huge. The bathroom was worn and outdated, but large and clean. I remember being hot and getting no relief from having the windows open. I would stay here again, but not in the dead of summer. Great location for going to the beach, shopping, and restaurants.

Pros: Location
Cons: Shower
Location: Shopping, beaches, close to the old town.
Nice stay but the room was small. Bathroom was poorly designed, the water from the shower was leaking heavily to the floor. Good location, close to the beach, right at the shopping area. Staff was friendly and helpful.

Pros: Location
Cons: Need modernising
Location: Close to everything
AC does not work properly. Be prepared to sweat it out at night. Bathrooms are old and flood easily if not careful with shower. Rooms are okay. Only good thing is location. Close to promenade, Galleria LaFayyette, tram station, restaurants and Messna Square.

Pros: location, friendly staff, reasonable rates
Cons: 14 euros for breakfast - was hit and miss - some days it was fresh and hot, other days it was cold and dry
Location: lots of restaurants and stores on your doorstep - transportation right there as well -
Small hotel - 3 stars - friendly staff, room was plain but reasonably clean, nothing too fancy - but we weren't in Nice to stay in a hotel - it suited our needs perfectly - great location to access Nice and transportation nearby. Lots of stores and restaurants right there on the doorstep. Service very good. Staff very helpful.

A nice hotel close to amenities & the beach

by from England
Posted Apr 18, 2016
Pros: The staff were very helpful and available 24/7.
Cons: The bathroom was a bit smelly but I suspect this was more to do with the drainage system than the fault of the hotel.
Location: There is a wonderful market nearby and walking into the 'old town' was great with its cobbled streets littered with small boutiques and cafe's .
The hotel is situated within easy walking distance of the old town. It is also close to numerous bars and restaurants. The tram stops outside the hotel and the bus service to the airport is nearby. There is a train station a short walk form the hotel and it is easy to get to Monte Carlo.

Centrally located hotel close to the beach

I stayed in this hotel for a week. It was in the perfect location - Central to everything! Staff were superb- helped me with everything I needed I asked for a quiet room and the hotel staff were very accommodating. The hotel only has one main lift which is slow and noisy. I could hear it operating from my room even though my room was not near the lift!! Beach is walking distance Right next to the main shopping street too!
