I had high hopes for the Ellington when we visited Nice in March 2015 - from the photos we saw on the luxury package website where we saw it the hotel looked to be modern, trendy and cool, with rooms furnished in a similar style to Malmaison in the UK. We could have paid £175 for 3 nights in a... More

We booked the hotel as part of a BA short break package after searching a number of suggestions from BA. We were not disappointed with our choice. This is a nice hotel only 10 minutes walk from the sea front and 10 minutes walk away from the main restaurants. We have stayed in France before and found the rooms are... More

Well located in a central location which was no more than 5/10 mins from the sea front/old town/train station. The hotel looks great and is quite old which adds charm. The reception, bar and breakfast area were very nice as was the outside terrace. The room itself was poor and the servicing was also poor. Room was old and shabby... More

Nice hotel ten minutes brisk walk to the sea front. The hotel has a jazz theme, hence the name Ellington. Pictures abound of the jazz stars, but most are not named, so it is difficult to work out who they are/were. The decor downstairs is good, but the bedrooms need updating. We never got the air conditioning/heating unit to work... More

My partner and I had a lovely stay at the hotel. We were very happy with our room and the location was superb. We enjoyed drinks in the bar, I'm glad we chose this hotel, would stay again if we are lucky enough to return to Nice soon.

I spent 5 nights here at the end of Feb. for the Carnival festivities. Awesome location tucked away a few blocks for the main shopping area, the old town and the seaside promenade. Stylish hotel with nice jazz theme. Staff were really engaging, warm and hospitable. The breakfast is really well done and I would recommend. Great value hotel with... More

Firstly, the breakfasts here were GREAT! A buffet of English/American/Continental: everything you could ask for and fantastically re-stocked all throughout the generous service time (7-10.30am). Top marks to the breakfast staff. We had three nights here, booked through BA with flights. The staff were all fantastic: polite, friendly, helpful and with very good English. The room was perfectly big enough... More

This hotel has lost its shine and forgotten to attend to the details, which make for a good guest experience. From scruffy reception staff to tacky laminated signs and happy hour blackboards, the 4* experience and design/glamour of the hotel is compromised. Breakfast is also disappointing, with self serve coffee machines replacing freshly made hot drinks. The room had a... More
