This is a new hotel in a quiet side-street close to the Nice central station; walking distance to the centre, and also to the Promenade des Anglais. Very good location if You are travelling around the Cote dÁzur with public transportation. The room was quite small, but adequate, with a small balcony, facing the street outside.

I stayed here at the end of 2015 for a weekend but actually changed my flight & left a night early. I did ask the female receptionist if she could change me to a quieter room as I had not been able to sleep at all but she said all the rooms were exactly the same. The hotel is right... More

Stayed for two nights and loved it!! It is about a 5min walk from the trainstation and is amazing inside. The hotel rooms are beautifully decorated and the beds are extremely comfortable. The breakfast included is great with afternoon tea also possible. The staff were friendly and helpful, giving awesome recommendations for dinner.

Bad Shower pressure was not strong enough to enjoy a good bath; the supply of hot water (which was VERY important since it was winter) was not consistent and you get jolted by a barrage of cold water while taking a shower; an midshift receptionist was almost no help when we were asking for some information and also when we...

This is a lovely place and would be a superb place to spend a holiday in Nice. Almost everything is excellent, and the staff is the best part.
