Just recently went to Nice for a few days of R&R. We chose the Hotel de la Mer and were very satisfied. The location on place Messina was perfect, near the beach and tram line. We stayed in what appeared to be recently renovated room. It was air conditioned and the bathroom was very nice. The only issue was that... More

We found this hotel via the recommendation of a popular travel book. The location is excellent. Minutes from the beach or several winding streets. Shopping easily accessible across the plaza. Staff gave great recommendations for eats! This is a no frills hotel but very worth the price! My only recommendation would be to ask how to get IN the check... More

The only good think about this hotel is the location. The rooms are terrible and the bathroom is the smallest bathroom you could ever find in a room. You can not sit in the toilet bowl and you can not even bath because there is no space! The window from our room has also a terrible view inside some old... More

Hotel de la Mer was a great find in Nice! One block to the beach - free access to the rocky areas - or pay for chair and umbrella at two beaches surrounding the free one, steps to the Old Town and feet from the tram. We were fortunate with Room 8, a large remodeled room with A/C and a... More

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
