Don't let the location put you off, this hotel is perfectly situated to the Gare de Nice-Ville and about a 15 minute walk to the Promenade. The hotel itself it just fantastic, from the outside all ivy and old school charm, then inside is this fabulous "Around The World In 80 Days" chic. And possibly the best shower in any... More

This hotel was a real surprise for us. Its so nicely done. The rooms are huge and the decor has had a lot of love put into it. Details everywhere. My fiancé loved the toiletries where as I was a big fan of the coffee machine in the room. The location is great if you are train travelling around Europe.... More

I booked a superior room which was overlooking the garden (choice is the street or garden) and had a small balcony. The room was spotless, had a rain shower which was wonderful, free wifi, and breakfast was included for 175 euros per night. The bed was very comfortable. I booked it through the hotel online. The breakfast was very good;... More

The best thing about this hotel is its staff, they are very helpful and friendly. We were a little disappointed with the location as it was a 20 minute walk to the beach and the area did feel a 'little seedy', but was very close to the train station. Don't make the mistake that we did and get a taxi... More

Carpets made it difficult to roll luggage to room. Had a deluxe room and it was a small room for 3 people and a very small shower and toilet area. Would recommend upgrading room if staying for more than a couple of nights. Loved the convenience of the nearby train station, which was only 2 minutes from the hotel and... More

Rooms are very small, area isn't the best, handy for train station, lack of storage space, bathrooms cramped. Very modern case designed rooms that are totally impractical, no pool, in future will return to hotels near the sea front

Dear Sir, Thank you for taking the time to share your experience about your stay with us. For people who like spacious rooms, it is true that our Classic room can be small, this is why we propose bigger rooms like Superior room, Deluxe room or Junior Suite. It would have been helpful to know why you did not like... More

The rooms are very cool, confortable, spacious and well decorated, it seems they were recently renewed. The staff is friendly and the location is very convenient, very close to the Nice Railway. The hotel offers 4 vacancies to park your car in front of the hotel, free of charge, you just have to be clever and lucky to get one... More

Recently redecorated, the deluxe room exceeded our expectations in size, decor. Decent ten euro breakfast. Would return here. 250 meters to Gare Nice Ville. Downside is no hotel restaurant and few attractive neighborhood restaurants. Plan to eat in another neighborhood. Easy, five-minute walk to shopping.

We only had a quick night stop over on a driving trip we did. The lady was really helpful trying to find us street parking, and also a place to eat. The rooms are cool and they provide you with what my wife says are amazing hand cream and toiletry products. All in all , and nice quick stay.

This hotel is conveniently located within 150m of the gare De ville and within 10 minutes walk of the Gare provencal making it a good location for those who want to explore the cote d' azur region by train. The rooms are colourful and decorated in a fashion befitting of travellers. The bathrooms were well appointed. The murals in the... More
