Sorry for being sharp but seriously € 100 for that room is just unbelievable. As soon as we went in we were astonished by the bad smell. The reception was empty so we had a look around and we saw an elderly man sleeping on a sofa and snoring. The scene was everything but pleasant cause he looked dirty and... More

It is a small hotel in the center of Nice, close to the train station. But it is not very pretty, looks like a very old building, every time someone walked in the hallway you could feel the vibrations of the steps, the beds are not that comfortable and the service not friendly at all, we had a problem with...

Dont stay in Nice center if you have a car, they dont have parking (it seems no hotel has it).. Better stay little outside of the city center. Hotel is very old and needs repairing all around.. Very noisy streets around.

Situated just over a kilometer from the station and 2 blocks back from the Promenade des Anglais , you find this small family run hotel. We arrived at 9.30 in the morning and were shown to our room , at no extra cost. Nothing luxurious , but very clean and comfortable and well situated. Room was ensuite and a fridge... More

Hotel a few blocks from sea, good location from the bars and restaurants, just far away as to be not too noisy. Room 5 could do with an update, shower just a trickle, either hot or cold. Tv in room but no English Channel, would have lived the news just once a day

My husband and I stayed at this hotel in July 2013. We have stayed in hostels and other low-rated hotels in the past but this one was by far the worst. The hotel is in desperate need of a renovation - the rooms and hallways are dimly lit. In fact, you have to turn on the lights once you get... More

In no way would I recommend this for someone going to the south of France to live that high life, but as a place to crash whilst touring about its fine. Really cheap, but really well located only a stones throw from the prom and beach and 10 mins from the old town. Not the cleanest place I have ever... More

I stayed at Hotel De La Buffa last summer with my two friends. We had booked a room for three and obviously at Hotel De La Buffa room for three means a room with two beds... Luckily the beds were big enough and we managed to sleep well. But in case you don't want to share your bed with somebody,... More

upon arrival we requested a change in room and nobody wanted. They stated that they got their money and did not care. We argued to no avail and stated that we should get a better room or refund for the travel agency. Nothing, we left.
