We recently stayed at this 3 star hotel for six nights in late July, 2014. Myself and my wife had a room on the third floor at the front of the hotel, overlooking a busy street. The room consisted of a double bed, a wardrobe, a small LCD TV, a small shelf and a plastic chair. There was also a... More

My sister and I stay at this hotel every year whilst we have a week's fun and watch the Ironman race. Every year Olga and her team look after us, the rooms are clean functional and excellent value. So close to the Sporting Plage. Just behind the Westminster but a fraction of the price.... Perfect friendly hotel

We really enjoyed our stay here. The room was a bit small (as is normal in European cities), but we still managed fine with two people and two large packs, and the room was clean and tidy and had good facilities. The staff were friendly and helpful, and the breakfast was good and varied. The courtyard was a real bonus... More

Location is great without doubt. Zillion restaurants nearby and only couple hundred meters to the beach, both public and private. Our room was tiny and it was difficult to manage with two luggages! Bathroom was modern and clean. The hair dryer was a joke and there was no place to hang towels or clothes. Besides that nothing bad to say... More

We had a very nice stay here. The staff was friendly and helpful. The room was small but comfortable. The shower was good. Opt for the express breakfast of coffee/ tea and a pastry. The full breakfast was three times the price and didn't offer much variety. The courtyard is nice. The beach is less than a five minute walk... More

We have just returned from 4 nights in Nice and this hotel. The staff were very welcoming and helpful. Our room wasn't big but was nicely decorated, clean, and had everything you need. They even called us in the early afternoon, when we were still in the room on our last day, to see if we wanted our room cleaned.... More
