In fairness, the room was a single- but even by European standards- it was pretty small. Single-bed and a couple-3' of extra room... I had a lot of baggage including a bicycle so it was a tight fit. Excellent location right across from Gare de Nice Ville. 15-20 minute walk to COurs Saleya/beach. A couple sketchy alleys near hotel, but... More

Villa Bougainville is a newly remodeled hotel near the train station in Nice. It is close to downtown, the train station, the Tram, etc. The rooms are small, as one would expect from an older hotel in a European city, but they are clean, nicely decorated and comfortable. My wife and I stayed there for two nights after a week... More

This hotel is extremely unpleasant. Upon arrival, there was a pricing dispute between the booking agency and the hotel. After having the booking agency resolve the dispute as a third party, the owner forced us to stay at the hotel when we obviously didn't want to and had gotten out of the reservation through the booking agency. If you are... More

The staff was very kind and helpful, and the athmosphere of the hotel is relaxed.The girl at the reception gave us a total-guide to sightseeing in Nice, including where and how to buy tickets for the tram. The hotel is very close to the railway station. The rooms are small, but fulfilled our needs completely.

Stayed in this beautiful boutique hotel for our two out of five day stay in whilst in Nice. Firstly the staff were amazing, attentive, welcoming and helpful. The rooms were cozy, but bright and arty and the en-suits had everything we needed, a little more room in which to store our suitcases would have been preferred but thats just nitpicking.... More

Close to the main station as well as a pleasant walk to the old city, and not too far from the beach. The rooms have everything you need, with nice decor. The only problem is that the soundproofing is not great. The wifi is fine, the air conditioning is good.

Nicely refurbished hotel. Hotel name was still not on the front but found it OK as quite close to the main railway station. My Room was small but clean and comfortable with good aircon. Bed was a little hard and pillows overall hard. Telephone system seemed to have problems for transferring calls. but more importantly, the WiFi was free and... More

This hotel is new and doesn't have the hotel's name anywhere outside so you could just walk straight past it. Not very helpful when you are trying to find it for the first time on foot...would have thought they would have a temporary sign at least. The decor of the hotel is very unique. It won't be to everyone's taste... More

New so much to be improved, but the location is good (centre Nice) and I'm impressed with how the decorating was done. Lots of wonderful antique decorations and every room is carefully designed for pleasure seekers. Would love to come back again :))

The structure is quite old but its not a great problem since the rooms are nice and new and overall it gives a good vibe. The hotel staff is very competent and available all along the day.
