This hotel is a 2 min walk from the nice main train station and a 10min walk to the beachfront. It is on a side street and very quiet overnight. The hotel has been renovated and styled in the inside with cool carpet and funky wallpaper throughout the hotel and rooms. The staff were overly nice and spoke great English.... More

My wife and I took a whirlwind trip through southern Europe and stayed at Hotel Nice Excelsior as part of a package. The accommodations were perfectly acceptable but the staff really made the place special. If we ever return to Nice we will definitely plan to stay here again. I had ruptured my right calf a few months prior to... More

We love staying at the Nice Excelsior when we come to Nice. This was our third trip, and each time it has been excellent. The only draw back is that it's a 10 to 15 minute walk to the promenade, with all its restaurants and the beautiful ocean. But the advantage is that it's located right near the train station,...

Well placed for access by bus from airport and close to station. Also within walking distance of the start of the open top bus route. Reasonably priced & quiet very comfortable hotel with lovely decor, helpful staff & secluded rear garden & bar.

6 nights in Nice, and this hotel played its part in what was a largely excellent trip. Easy to walk to most parts of town yet far enough to be away from the hustle and bustle (if that's what you want), so For our needs ideally placed. And a stones throw from the station. Clean smart rooms, nice staff, but... More

Had a room in one of the chalets at the back. Very quiet, clean and large wet room. Staff very helpful. Didn't have breakfast so can't comment on that. Short walk into town and station very close by, which was good for us as we travelled out on day trips. Only downside was that to access wifi from the rooms... More

Great little hotel to stay in Nice, stone throw away from the train station. Clean, comfortable and very friendly service. Bar not opened on a sunday which was disappointing as we would have liked a drink/apero before going to dinner

The Bar still close only on sunday. But the receptionnist staff can... More

The room we had was nice but the bathroom / WC was really tiny. With long legs my knees were against the door in the WC. The main bathroom was also very cramped. Avoid rooms ?05 and ?06 (e.g. 205, 206) as they are beside the lift and noisy and takes up bathroom space. Storage space is limited but for... More
