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

Can be difficult to find, but once there the location is perfect. Getting to the main fountain in the Old Town is easy. Once there, stand in front of the statue at the fountain. Directly behind the statue is a building with a travel shop at street level. To the left of the travel shop is an ancient doorway with... More

Vacationed in Nice for two nights in September '13, unaware that "Francophonie" was going to be staged directly in front of the hotel in Place Massena. Despite the festivities running late into the night & early mornings, we were not disturbed. It is easy to walk past the hotel entrance, because the only marking is a small placard to the... More

The location cannot be better. Extremely friendly and helpful English speaking staff. Old building nicely remodeled with a modern bathroom. It is best to remember that the entrance is just behind the fountain and the little train in Place Messina as the entrance is difficult to spot.

Arm yourself with a detailed map because even with the printed hotel name and address the taxi managed to drop us off at the wrong place and we had to drag our trolley bags around asking for directions until we found someone who pointed us in the right direction. Thankfully it was within walking distance - just that it was... More

2 nights in Aug '13. The good: location, location, location. Friendly staff. The bad: Room we had was quite rundown, and didn't feel like a 3-star standard at all. Breakfast is a rip off - 7€ for a couple of bits of bread + condiments and a tea. Hotel has no front fascia so is easily missed on Place Massena.... More

We booked this hotel having read other reviews on Trip Advisor, and stayed for 3 nights late July. Reassuringly pretty much everything was borne out in reality, and our expectations were fully met. We had a 3/4 bed room overlooking the rear of the hotel. It was roomy and recently renovated. The compromise was that it offered peace and quiet... More

Firstly, the location is fantastic - So close to the thriving Old Town and 5 minute walk to the Promendade des Anglais! When we first arrived outside the hotel, we thought we had booked a dingy room on the first floor block of apartments, however we were warmly welcomed by the staff who are so welcoming and helpful - a...
