We have stayed here twice, the hotel staff are very welcoming, rooms are always clean, comfortable and a good size. This hotel is ideal for anyone visiting Nice by train as it is close to the station, there are restaurants nearby and it is a ten minute walk to the lovely promenade. Happy to recommend this hotel to anyone we... More

Walking to the old town and main shopping streets although a little further away than lots of others ; the immediate location is a little scruffy but fine . Main gripe would... More

Chose the Excelsior Hotel as close to main station. Took 99 bus from outside Terminal 2 (6euros ) bus drops you off in slip road opposite station and took us about 20 minutes. Get off bus take first right into Ave Durante and you will see the hotel on RH side. Simple as that. We found the hotel very agreeable.... More

My wife was taking me to Nice to celebrate my 62nd birthday and came across this hotel on Trip Advisor. She was attracted by the fact that it had recently been refurbished and was good value for money. When we arrived we were greeted by the friendly receptionist who spoke excellent English and we were surprised to find that our... More

We needed a hotel that was close to the train station as both my husband and I were travelling on the TGV from Paris to Nice and our car and camping trailer was on the auto train arriving into Nice the following morning. Arrived late at night, needless to say raining we did get slightly lost in finding the hotel... More

The bed was quite large and was very comfortable. We found the hotel really quiet, we didn’t even notice any noise from... More

Dear Tedlooney, Thank you for taking the time to provide comments from your stay at the nice Excelsior Hotel. We understand the breakfast complain and trying to make a different offer for the future, less expensive, but it's difficult to compare a breakfast's hotel and a breakfast's coffee shop or bar. It is not the same experience. Yours Sincerely, Mélissa... More

A clean, quiet hotel. It is very close to the railway station, so you can easily go to Monaco or Cannes, but you will hear no train noises in it. Also close to the city center (a 10 minutes walk) and very close to the shopping street. Very clean. Excellent shower with lots of water pressure. Room was small but... More

A very good boutique hotel. Nicely decorated. Good quality breakfast (a bit at the expensive, but still acceptable). We had a spotless room at the back of the hotel and we enjoyed the silence at night. Room facilities were very good. Staff is very helpful. A big advantage is also that the hotel is at less than 100m from the... More
