the location was perfect, near the beach with lots of cafes, bakeries, grocery stores and restaurants in the vicinity. the rooms however were cramped and there was no free parking. the beach is 10 min walk. Considering how expensive nice is, this hotel was not bad for the money that I paid.

The Hotel is old but still clean. It is located in a perfect spot just one street back from the beach, so that's a winner. The staff were very friendly and we were well looked after by one of the ladies at the desk named Manuella. I would recommend to stay here.

Not great but reasonably well located! Rooms were all right, the bed in my first room was poor and it was very noisy from Saturday night racing cars. The front desk was very supportive in changing rooms. It was thought to be on the noisier side but I found it to be quieter and the bed was a big improvement.

I visited my extended family living in Nice in March 2013 and when more family members were due to arrive I decided I wanted somewhere quiet to sleep for the last night before I head back to London. I searched on booking.com a week in advance just to check the prices for a single room in nearby hotels and was... More

After reading these reviews I didn't want to expect anything from this hotel. We needed cheap stay for one night, so the price was really good. 20 e per person was reasonable price for this quality. If I had payed more, I would have been dissatisfied. Staff were nice and spoke English. The first room we got smelled smoke and... More

From reading the other reviews on here I think we were lucky with the room we were given. The room was clean and although could do with updating, I feel it was good value. It was MUCH MUCH cheaper to book through a hostel booking website than the rates advertised in the hotel. The location of the hotel was great,... More

I recommend this place if you're on a very tight budget and can deal with the annoyances of this type of hotel. The good points: Friendly, helpful english speaking staff, free wifi, good location. The bad points: No elevators, smelly, questionable bathrooms, ugly decor, and paper thin walls. (I could hear what sounded like a terrorist plot being planned in... More
