Lovely hotel within walking distance of the old town and centre of Nice. Staff were very friendly and breakfast was very good. Stayed here for a week for work. Rooms were small but comfortable. The A/C could be a little bit stronger as it was quite hot while I was there. But other than that was a good stay. Free... More

This hotel is ok, and ok is all it is. It is clean, the small, dated rooms have aircon and a fridge, you get clean new towels daily, even if you follow their 'green policy' and dont request them. The service is ok, not personnel, overly friendly or polite but we checked in ok and every morning we watched waiters... More

Great staff, spoke English, which is always helpful. Great location, close to Main Street and the Tram. Breakfast was good, but I wasn't impressed with the coffee machine. Room was clean, quiet and the bed was very comfy. Nice bathroom as well. Also had a lift for the steps inside the front entrance.

Hotel was located in a great location & had a good facade and lobby area. Security was poor, no tag entry for lifts and the safe was broken. Rooms very small & decor dated. Two single beds pushed together. Friends on same trip had to change room twice due to size. Air conditioning while effective was very noisy and had... More

Lovely hotel in central location and very nice area. On arrival given free upgrade from deluxe room to executive room. Lovely spacious room with balcony. Very close to old town for abundance of restaurants. Short walk to promenade.Very friendly and helpful staff. Third trip to Nice and would definitely recommend this hotel to friends.

The elegant Ellington is a few steps from the main tram line and minutes from the promenade. It's friendly, quiet and extremely well run. The breakfast is a delight and the bar offers very reasonable "happy hour" half price drinks from 6pm outside on the terrace. We stayed four nights during the very busy Iron Man contest weekend and it... More

Excellent location in the older part of town, close to shopping, beach and sights. Friendly staff, no problem speaking English. Rooms are not large, but are comfortable,and so are the beds. Shower? Well, it's a typical European shower, but the water temperature control works well. Breakfast is above average for a four star hotel. We enjoyed staying here and would... More

The Ellington is only 5 min to the Mediteranian Sea and the famous French Rivera beach. Many local shops and designer shops are accessible on your walk to the beach or choice from many restaurants. The hotel has a nice lobby bar with a very nice garden area of you want to sit outside and have a drink. The rooms... More

I have just returned from a short break with my partner to Nice. We were given a free upgrade upon arrival from a standard to a superior room which was a nice surprise. Our room was small but adequate (we already knew from reviews we had read that the rooms were on the small side). The bathroom was newly refurbished... More

We had a brilliant stay at Hotel Ellington. The hotel is well situated; just a few minutes walk from all the main attractions - the sea, the old town, the shopping district and the train stations. The staff were helpful and very friendly. Our room was fantastic. We had an executive room on the top floor. It was spacious, clean... More
