This small hotel is ideal for using as a base. It is clean, friendly, comfortable along with being great value for money. Olga and her team are fully committed to delivering excellent customer service

Clean and very comfortable room with efficient air conditioning. Working Wi-Fi and awesome staff. Breakfast was very varied and delicious, worth every euro. Special thanks to the taxi ordering precisely the right time. Restaurants and the beach are near the hotel so the location is right. Next time in Nice choose the same hotel again

We found this hotel to be average, and looked better in the photos than in reality. The double room was so small we could not open suitcases. The bathroom so tiny it was hard to shower and you had no where to hang your towel!! The one thing they got right was the kettle in the room, it was useful.... More

Dear Madam, Thanks for your recent stay with us and your feedback. We don't pretend to be 4*: )! Our rooms size and comfort correspond to 3* French hotel standards. We had more umbrellas than one but some umbrellas weren't not given back by the guests. The weather forecast is at disposal at the reception and organised guests have their... More

stayed here while on a short visit to nice with my daughter. The location is perfect being a short walk to the beach, bars and restaurants and the train station. It is very easily accessible from the airport and the town. We had an amazing stay and the staff are very accommodating and friendly. For the very reasonable price, the... More

We typically stay at larger hotel, but required a room for 3 and came upon this on a travel site. We stayed for 4 nights. The location is great as it is a short walk from everything. We started off on the ground floor in a very nice room, but I am a light sleeper and requested to be moved... More

We stayed here in May 2015 for a few nights and was pleasantly surprised by the hotel. The rooms were lovely and clean. The rooms on the front of the hotel do not get much sun so are on the cooler side and noisier from the road but nothing that is a huge trouble. The rooms at the back of... More

Great hotel with perfect location, just a short walk to the beach and old town. Very nice staff, helpful and kind. The rooms were very clean and the beds excellent! The breakfast buffet was good, although 12 euros was a bit overpriced. Will definitely recommend the hotel to others and hope to be back!

We chose this hotel because we wanted a base to explore Nice and the surrounding area. It is conveniently close to the Promenade des Anglais, but far enough away to ;lose the traffic from that road. The Hotel de la Fontaine is comfortable, clean and well run by the friendly and helpful multilingual staff. I would certainly recommend it and... More

THE BAD EXPERIENCE. After booking this hotel back in January and at this time we asked for a room overlooking the small patio area (as recommended by a trip advisor reviewer) which we would have paid extra for if asked, but we were not asked. Our booking was for 5 nights therefore we were looking for something comfortable not noisy.... More

Dear Madam, You booked a standard room via your travel agent. With the unique aim to offer your more tranquility and space, we allocated you in a twin-bedded room facing the patio located on the ground floor. This room has got a different style that a room upstairs, it’s also slightly bigger and it’s quiet. It’s got a parquet floor,... More
