A lovely little hotel only 2minutes walk from the station and 10 mins from the Promenade des Anglais, Newly decorated, everything was clean and fresh. Staff were very polite and accommodating. Our only negative was that we had a classic room which was very small with limited storage space. Ok for a short break where you used the hotel just... More

Good hotel, that has been modernised. The decoration of the room was modern, good toiletories and my girlfriend adored the free slippers! Staff were friendly. It's in a good area with shops nearby and a pleasant 20 minute walk to the city centre. I'd recommend this hotel. There is no parking but you can park in the nearby car park... More

We stayed in the Excelsior Hotel for 3 nights, from 28 to 31 March 2014. The hotel was situated in an ideal location, just 2 minutes walk from the Nice Ville train station, which has regular trains to Monte Carlo and Cannes. It was also a 15 minute walk to Nice's Old Town, which was really pretty. The hotel itself... More

A nice hotel situated close to the Railway station and tp the Bus from the airport. Short walking distance to the center and the beach. Calm area close to many small shops and muslim market places. Staff very friendly.

Hotel location is good..........a 10 minute walk from the seafront, 20 minute walk to the old town, 25 minute walk to the port and a stones throw from the Nice Ville railway station and a trip to a variety of destinations including Monaco, Antibes, Cannes, etc. The...

This is a very difficult review for me, because this hotel was a very strange experience for me. I have only 1 con for the hotel & many pros. However the 1 con I have was extremely important (for me) and I can’t believe that no one in their previous reviews have mentioned this as explicitly. So that has led... More

Dear Madam, We would like to thank you for the time taken to give us your feelings about the Nice Excelsior hotel.

We stayed in this hotel for a week and had a very enjoyable stay.The location is excellent for transfer to and from the airport by bus which appeared to be the best option as the bus stop at the airport is right outside the arrivals and it then stops a couple of minutes walk from the hotel.The train station and...

We stayed here for three nights, The hotel has been newly decorated and is very clean and fresh. We opted for the superior room which was spacious with a view on to the garden area. There are also three rooms at the back in a separate building which I would think about asking for on a second visit. A ten... More

We stayed here for three nights recently. The property was recently renovated and is very conveniently located a few steps from the train station. This turned out to be very handy for exploring other nearby towns like Monte Carlo, Eze, and also for our onward journey to Italy via Ventimiglia. The hotel is small but brightly decorated and there is... More

I loved this hotel. True, I got a 50 euro per night low season rate but I'd definitely go back at higher season rates. Rooms aren't huge but they're comfortable and modern and I liked the quirky luggage-theme design of the furniture which extends to the guest lounge and breakfast bar. The fact that hotel has a guest lounge in... More
