After reading all reviews for Acanthe hotel I was a bit worried and doubting whether I should book it or not. Now I can say I definitely did the right choice. Amazing location, right next to old town and its busy bars and restaurants. Easy to find as it is just on the side of Massena Place. 5-7mins walk from... More

The Acanthe has been newly done up and is now an even more pleasant place to visit. Our 7th time there, so we like it !! We had a rather odd problem there, neither ours nor the hotels, but the staff really helped us to get home and to rectify a rather tricky situation. French computer keyboards are rather different...

Perfect location, close to tram, shopping, restaurants, old town and Promenade des Anglais and other points of interest. Helpful people at the desk. The room is barely adequate in size but would never accommodate anyone who is large. I am slender and barely able to use shower/toilet. Anyone large could not fit. The room was clean and adequate. The mattress... More

The hptel is near the NEW park and the main shoppingstreet. About 15 minutes walk from the trainstation. 10 minutes walk to the Theater. Basic room and a small elevator. For this price you cant have luxery. Rooms are complete with shower and toilet, no aico.

The hotel is near the old town, very near the airport, buses, near everything. The hotel has not got any luxery, but it is clean and for a good price. The staff is friendly and helpfull, even helping to find a good restaurant.

We stayed there twice in 2013 - June and December. The location is as good as can be. Close to everywhere, specially if you are a heavy shopper and need to take your bags to hotel, when enjoying the shopping street. The breakfast is always the same, so if you are staying for more then 4 days, it would become... More

Stayed here for 2 nights in July 2013. Best location in centre of Nice. Good value for money. Room was simple, but clean. I think this is a great place to stay if you are looking for a budget hotel. I would recommend it any time. Friendly staff.

I stayed here a while ago when it was rated a 1 star hotel on the booking site. Glad to see it's been upgraded to a 2 star in that time - definitely more reflective of the experience, and that's not a criticism. Hotel is basic, adequate, could do with a little modernisation in decor. Walls were thin so a... More
