Good area but desperately needs to be updated. I would suggest staying else where. You don't go on holidays to be at a hotel but your bed should be comfortable at the least at it wasn't. Very old but close to the beach, on a tour not a choice I had made.

We stayed here for two nights. The location is pretty decent in the city with lots of stuff within easy walking distance including the beach. The wifi costs money and was pretty slow, around 2mbps down and 500kbps up. The rooms are pretty dated but they were fairly clean. The staff was fairly nice. The breakfast was pretty typical for...

We stayed here a couple of years ago. The experience had a lasting impression and is often remember.....not for good reasons but for the location. We were on a group bus tour and felt that we were only a number to fill the room, small and unclean rooms power outages and poor wi-fi connection, lacking in the breakfast service and... More

This hotel desperately needs to be renovated or closed. I would not recommend anyone to stay here. We stayed in a room on the first floor that was old and stuffy. The furniture was broken and the decor had a fly theme. The bathrooms were extremely small and the shower curtains were worn. When showering, staff ran to our room... More

What a great location, easy walk to the beach and town centre. My number one check is the bathroom and I was very disappointed. The shower was tiny with a mouldy shower curtain and mouldy tiles. The mattress looked like it was as old as the hotel and a girl we were travelling with ended up with massive welts all... More

A really beautiful area of Nice, quiet and close to the beach. This hotel was on the stop of a group tour and due to being sick I spent a lot of time indoors here. We had a twin room booked but got a room with two single beds and a bunk bed! Great for putting our bags on but... More

The hotel's advantages are location, a few blocks from the beach and pedestrian zone, and a nice staff. The hotel is a little dated -- but also I think a good value. Our rooms were clean and tidy, the elevator worked, the breakfast was good enough. You have to leave your key at the front desk when you go out,... More

We have just returned home from a lovely break in Nice. Our stay at the Hotel Busby was for 10 nights. On our arrival we were a little disappointed with the first impressions of the hotel, but as we relaxed into our holiday the Busby began to grow on us. The staff were very helpful & friendly our room was... More

To be fair the staff do seem to care and are nice, which is why i didn't give it one star - but thats where it ends. Moldy, dusty, old, charges you for wifi, a rotten breakfast - this place is great if you want to punish yourself. Really needs to be refurbished or just torn down.

On a recent European trip we were part of a tour group that had occasion to stay at the Hotel Busby for several nights. The hotel had seen better days in past years and so we attempted to look beyond the shabby exterior toward its providing us with a place to sleep with basic comforts and necessities. The best feature... More
