Our room on the top floor with a balcony to the street side, seems brand new, the bed was very big and comfortable, the shower was very spoiling. It was quite and we had a good night sleep.

Decoration/Staff We stayed in Hotel Excelsior for 4 nights and our stay was lovely. From the moment we arrived we were charmed by its decoration (they used a travel theme in the style of the 1920s) and very friendly staff. We were very early at the hotel (around 10am) and check-ins usually begin much later. We were hoping to leave... More

Very handy indeed for the rail station and a straightforward walk down to the sea front or to the main shopping street. Staff were pleasant and helpful. The building is a classic hotel that's recently been redone in a playful and sympathetic style. Local cafes are excellent for breakfast, and there are very good lunch and dinner options nearby. Tricky... More

The location is a twelve minute brisk walk to the Promenade Des Angles Reception of the hotel is accessed by several steps and is very small. Check in was very quick and the receptionist had a...

We only stayed one night in this hotel. Service was excellent. The staff were attentive and the rooms were very clean but quite small. I also thought the breakfast was expensive. Very close to the main shopping area and very close to the train station.

The Excelsior is a few blocks from the seaside pedestrian area but very clean, good breakfast and friendly staff. Easy walk to the downtown streets and a few neighborhood restaurants. The front desk staff was extremely helpful. I'm not sure if wi fi is an extra charge because I was with a small group and it was included.

We were with a agritourism group and found ourselves at the Nice Excelsior. We very much enjoyed our stay....the breakfast was large, varied, and delicious...with latte/espresso machines and excellent tea selections (I'm a tea person, and seeing the Tea Forte made me happy). The breakfast was worth the charge (17 Euros), but for 7 Euros, one could choose a pretty... More
