An absolute gem, so close to the centre of everything. No fault to find with anything. The standard of cleanliness was exemplary. The staff were always helpful and polite. The Beds were amazingly comfortable, and tea and coffee facilities too. Could not ask for more.

Tea & coffee facilities were provided and the front desk happy to provide fresh milk, more tea/coffee etc. the members of staff we dealt with were friendly and efficient and happy to suggest and book...

Pared down, in an Ikea kind of way...but kind staff who run an efficient, centrally located hotel. Very clean. Good bathroom and comfortable bed. They made sure our taxi was at the hotel at 6.00 am, which was crucial. We unexpectedly needed a hotel for one night at the last minute, and our hosts recommended this one. It was a... More

The rooms are lovely, bright and clean. The shower is great very good pressure but the shower itself is too small for even... More

We stayed in this reasonably priced little hotel for 3 nights. The location was good and it was just a short walk to the beach, or the shops. It was clean and comfortable. Our room was small but that was fine - we just needed to be tidy and organised. The staff were very helpful and friendly. I would say... More

Just returned from a great extended weekend break in Nice, booked through British Airways, and enjoyed the stay at the Hotel de la Fontaine, Nice. There is an excellent direct bus service from Nice Airport to the city of Nice and this hotel is just a stone's throw from the main seafront promenade (actually, set back one road from the... More

Don't be put off by the exterior of this hotel, inside is modern and clean with a lovely light place to have breakfast. Our twin room was clean and the beds comfortable, but not a big space, with a very small bathroom. To use the safe costs 8€. Kettle and grim plastic mugs supplied. There was however, a large wardrobe.... More

This cozy spot is very convenient for arrival by train, about a 15 minute walk. The hotel is in the heart of Nice only steps from the Promenade on the Riviera. Reception from Olga was very pleasant. It has a sunny and bright breakfast area with a pretty patio out back. Our room was small but very comfortable and although... More
