The location is excellent. We got the one room with a balcony overlooking the square. Definitely try to get this room. Great fun to sip your wine and watch the scene. Wish they had better signage--wasn't easy to find.

I was very happy with my stay at this hotel. The rooms were very clean, the staff very friendly and attentive; the location couldn't be better. The rooms have simple but cozy décor, And the price wasn't too bad considering it's in Nice. You can't go wrong with Hotel de la Mer.

We stayed here for 3 nights in late May. The location was excellent, close to the old town but also the beach promenade (Quai des Etats-Unis). It was a quiet area and it was lovely walking home in the evening past the modern fountain near the Place Messina. The breakfast room is small but has a lovely view across the... More

We were pleasantly surprised with this accommodation. It was great! The staff were friendly, rooms small but clean and location is great ( just a little far from the bus stop to Monaco ) We really enjoyed being so close to the beach and restaurants. Would stay here again.

Following a few days in Cannes, we decided to stay the night here to be nearer the airport. I was looking forward to a day in Nice and this is a great location to the best area of Nice. We had stayed in this Hotel 4 years ago, it needed refurbishing then, so the reviews saying this had happen was... More

stayed at this hotel end May/June 2014 and found that the hotel was very clean despite other reviews and comments, the hotel was very quiet and in a very good location right near the old town and close to the sea, close to bars and restaurants, We chose a comfort room ( not sure what it meant but the bed...

We stayed here 3 nights in May 2014. Had no trouble finding it from the airport even though we got off the bus too soon. There was some construction going on in the lobby, but that certainly doesn't affect the quality of the experience. The host was friendly and helpful from the first time we contacted the hotel, as were... More

Door locked. No receptionist at check in time. Rang bell repeatedly and a painter let us into a room. No receptionist until much later. Decided to check... More

My wife and I stayed at Hotel de la Mer for 3 nights in June. The location was very nice for walking in the Old City or down to the beach. The hotel is right on Place Massena, we had the room with the balcony and it was nice to sit out on the balcony in the morning and people... More

We booked for three nights over new years eve and it was a terrible experience. The hotel is still under renovations and there is no 24 hour desk service. The entrance to the hotel is terrible, its only one floor in this huge building and inside it looks more like a one star cheap hostel but the price was very... More
