Yes this hotel is located at the station and yes maybe its not the best location, but it is a lovely hotel. I would go even so far to say that it is kind of a low end boutique hotel. Nicely furbished with extremely friendly staff (and trust me, that is very rare on the french riviera) The elevator is... More

Tonight's our 1st of the 5 unfortunate nights we have booked at this fake 4 star hotel. The room is a double standard and is smaller than a toilet. I come from London and exactly know what small means. But this is smaller than that. The toilet is cramped in a corner and the wc is tight for somebody of... More

A newly renovated hotel in Nice, very petite but in good condition. Location is a little of the city centre but right next to the train station so ideal if you have to catch an early train. Rooms are a little noisy but else everything is very nice. Staff is super friendly and helpful.

This boutique hotel is the nicest hotel we have stayed in Nice. While the location might turn you off, the hotel and the staff make up for it. The lobby is well designed, old world but yet modern with a beautiful aroma. Free nespresso coffee 24 hours a day, water, coke, ice tea available in lobby most of the day... More

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.

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.
