Staff was rude. Gave me a dirty room. New room smelled of smoke. They don't provide clean sheets during cleaning.

Reasonable price, basic facilities

3 out of 5

Pros: The location, the cost and the helpfulness of some of the staff.
Cons: Definitely needs updating although the communal areas are reasonable.
Location: 2-3 minutes from Promenade des Anglais/beach & restaurants and 10-15 from old town. Shops, park, restaurants all close - 15-20 minute bus from airport
This hotel is extremely reasonably priced for Nice especially as it is only a three minute walk from Promenade des Anglais. Rooms are fairly basic, with ensuite facilities although the décor is probably mid 70s and could definitely do with updating. We had room 46 which was on 4th floor with a small balcony with a table and 2 chairs, and the sea was visible from this and it had sun on the balcony from early morning until presumably around lunchtime. In our room everything was clean, bed was comfortable and there was plenty of storage for clothes etc. Wifi was free and accessible although the system for inputting a code was fiddly and annoying as it only lasted two days. Breakfast was available at 8 euros, fairly standard continental style, but there were plenty of options outside the hotel along the promenade if you wished. We stayed five nights for about £240 which considering we were almost right on the beach about ten/fifteen minutes walk from the old town was pretty good value. If you want a cheap, clean hotel and won't be in it much, this is the place to go, but if you prefer a touch of luxury, go to the Negresco or one of the other top notch hotels in the area. But value for money this would be hard to beat.

Pros: Simple, clean, easy.
Cons: Provide an iron and ironing board in the room.
Location: Easy walk to the beach!
I wasn't expecting much considering the cost per night. I was pleasantly surprised. Don't expect much, but the hotel has what you need if you just need a place to shower and sleep. Overall cleanliness was thumbs up! Great helpful staff too!

Excellent Location

4 out of 5
by from London
Posted Oct 11, 2015
Pros: Location, price paid for stay
Cons: Bathrooms need updating in terms of decor
Location: Very close to the beach, central Nice, and Cote d'Azur airport. Be sure to do a full-day tour of the Riviera whilst you're there!
Stayed 3 nights as a couple. Room was well-furnished, bed comfortable, shower strong, powerful and hot. Bathroom rather outdated in design, but being a budget hotel it more than met my expectations, and we spent a lot more time out of the room than in. Had to leave keys at front desk whenever leaving the building, but we had no security complaints. There's a Lidl close by for essential shopping, and lots of places nearby to eat. Best of all, you're a stone's throw from the beach and a simple 7-10 minute bus ride from the airport, central Nice, and lots of local attractions. Apart from the airport which we took a bus to, we walked everywhere and really enjoyed it. Staff pleasant and helpful enough. Would stay there again.

Hotel close to the beach

Some reviews have been rather scathing but I was pleasantly surprised. Reception can be a bit French but I found that with some little effort they were quite good. The location is ideal, very close to the beach and shopping 5 minutes away. Our room was very clean and serviced daily. I was more than satisfied with my stay.

Hotel in need of refurbishment.

2 out of 5
by from Bath
Posted Apr 21, 2015
Pros: It is a very easy journey from the airport on the bus, and easy to find. The staff are friendly.
Cons: The hotel is in need of complete refurbishment.
Location: Good location and interesting areas to wander round behind the main thoroughfare.
My hotel room smelt very musty, the carpet was grubby and the bedspread dirty, though, thankfully, the sheets were clean. It was impossible to sleep due to the noise of the traffic, though I understand that the back rooms are quieter. I asked if I could move to another room and the staff were apologetic but said that the hotel was full. The double bed was rock hard, and the breakfast consisted of pre packaged croissant and rolls. I was very glad that I was only staying on my way through Nice.

An excellent budget hotel near to City centre

Posted Feb 17, 2015
Pros: Very reasonable price and location
Cons: Rooms are basic but clean
Location: Nice is a favourite for us, third visit, easy reach to Monaco, Grasse, Cannes and along the Riveria. Old town is worth a visit.
This is a very friendly hotel with helpful staff. Very close to Promenade des Englese and also within easy reach of the city centre.
