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

The room is small for the 3 of us, but there are plenty of cubbies to store everything. They have... More

I chose to stay at the Hotel de la Fontaine because of its good value / good location / good Tripadvisor rating. Simply put, you get what you pay for...an overall, pretty average stay. The room itself is clean, but a few details are missed. The orange bed runner was SOOOOO filthy - it had stains, discolorations, and hair (that... More

I cannot recommend this hotel highly enough. Great location. Friendly, helpful, English speaking staff. Beautiful courtyard for breakfast. While small, the room was clean and light, and well furnished. I booked as part of a British Airways deal, and would definitely do it again!

Beautiful little hotel: close to the beach, a plethora of restaurants and shops; easy to find from the airport and it has excellent staff. I would recommend getting a bus from the airport to hotel as this is much cheaper than pre booking a transfer or getting a taxi. The rooms are modern and the beds are very comfortable. Both... More

We stayed in this hotel over the Eastern holidays and we were very satisfied. We felt well from the first to the last minute. The hotel is located a few footsteps from the beach and from the pedestrian part of Rue de France and Rue Massena with all the shops and excellent restaurants. The room was small but very comfortable,... More

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.
