quiet

This hotel is not close to the bus stop 98/99. We carry heavy luggage and struggle our way to hotel. It is so difficult to find. Upon arrival at noon, the lobby is dark and dull. Fortunately the reception lady is very cheerful and helpful. The room, well, the carpet is stained, the wooden door is erode, the toilet definitely need renovation as the decoration is in 80s. We have the same experience as previous reviewer that we mistakenly think the breakfast is free. The breakfast coupons are misleading and we have to pain 17 euro each for the breakfast. It is delicious but definitely not worth the price. Even the restaurant in the Promenade des Anglais facing the sea worth only 12 euro for a full breakfast.

location

We chose this hotel based on location and were not disappointed. It is located within the walking distance from shopping area. Staff is very friendly and efficient. From the moment we checked in until checked out, we saw one man working everything from taking car key for valet parking, checking-in, checking-out, give internet passwords and concierge. There was not a moment that we did not have to wait to get our service. Manpower should be double at least. In-room Wifi is NOT free of charge. The free wifi is for 1-hour session in the lobby area. Parking was not available at the site and have to let the valet staff take our car. Parking is NOT free either. It is not recommended for guests with cars. The property is running down and I agree with previous reviews that the carpet was stained and smelly. Room decor shows its age and screams for renovation or at least a good maintenance.

Above average”

This hotel does not represent value for money and is not up to 4 star standard I have come to expect. The room was very basic, none of the furniture matched meaning it had no character and looked somewhat tired. The double bed requested was actually two singles pushed together. The minibar only contained 4 bottles of complimentary mineral water which was not replenished during my 3 night stay. The bathroom was also very basic with the minimum of cheep toiletries and towels that were just adequate. The best part of the stay was the buffet breakfast which was good value for money in pleasant surroundings. All the food on offer was fresh, plentiful and well presented. On arrival the airport pickup worked well but was a van (for a single passenger) and at 40 euros more expensive that the return journey by taxi (new mecedes car). The downstairs bar was empty every time I passed it and to be honest did not look very welcoming. If I am ever passing through Nice again I will not consider staying at this hotel. Hopefully this review is useful

Average hotel & location”

Nothing

We stayed at this hotel as a base to travel to Monaco & Cannes. It is about halfway between the central station and the beach so it was well situated for our needs. It is down a quiet street away from the hustle and bustle but just a short walk to the main attractions. It was about a 10 minute walk either way. The decor was very average, not modern but nothing that stood out. The first thing we tried to do was turn on the air-conditioning but when it didn't work and we called the reception, they simply told us that they "do not turn it on in this season". I personally found the room a bit too warm to sleep in at night but we left the windows open. The one thing I hated about this hotel was the plastic shower curtains. I have previously been in showers with plastic curtains but never had the same problem as this. When showering, the curtain kept sticking to my body which was extremely frustrating and uncomfortable. It definitely impacted my stay in a negative way as I think that bathrooms are very important in a hotel. Also, there is nothing in the mini bar at all. You need to order a package to have it stocked up. Although it wasn't that expensive, it was quite a hassle especially if you only wanted 1 or 2 drinks. They charged a whopping 15 euros per day for Wifi in the rooms but it was free for one hour in the lobby. We obviously opted for the second option. Strangely, one day when we returned back to the hotel from a day out the roof cover was open next to the air vent. This was a bit strange but nothing seemed to have been affected in our room. The staff were not very friendly and I personally felt uncomfortable asking them for directions. Instead I asked for information at the tourist information centre next to the train station.

Great buffet and value for money”

The buffet at this hotel was fantastic with the most darling breakfast court you've ever seen with umbrellas and beautiful breakfast tables. Range of options were endless, I loved it. It set you up for a great start to your day. Staff were always courteous, although not always welcoming - this was probably due to the sheer number of people that weekend though, which is understandable. A few improvements: With increase of mosquitos during summer, is it possible to put up a screen of some sort? Kudos to the bar staff who served us quite late at night til the very end of his shift which was at 1am. Dedication has not gone unnoticed and we were so very grateful!
