Unpretentious, simple accommodation. Compared to other places, this hotel is quite inexpensive. But...it is very, very good though! The location is excellent right in the centre of Nice, a few steps from the old town (Vieux Nice) but at the same time within a stone's throw from the main shopping drag. Very kind and helpful staff to top it off...and... More

I stayed here in September with my mother and cousin from Texas. The location is absolutely excellent, a short walk to the beach or the old town and the Place Massena is just a few minutes walk away. The airport bus 98 drops off and picks up nearby too. The building is very old and charming and my cousin thought... More

This hotel is very basic but in a really good location. Our room was number 44 & I would not recommend this room unless you are travelling on your own. Although it has a double bed it was really cramped. Breakfast was basic but adequate. This hotel is very near the town shops, the market, the sea & near lots... More

Overall, a very good hotel. Close to the beach (10 min. walk) and market. The room was initially small and we couldn't move about so they kindly gave us another room with a balcony. Much bigger and nicer. Clean room. Helpful and kind multilingual staff, especially in getting around (directions/bus/train). No problems whatsoever. The wifi was a bit spotty. Not... More

You will not find a better located hotel in Nice for this budget, rooms are a tad small, old and dated but who cares? Hotel is really easy to find, close to the beach, dining and shopping districts. The staff where welcoming and very helpful. We did not choose the breakfast option but it looked to be the standard croissant,... More

we stayed for 4 nights in the Acanthe hotel. It is an old, charming building (Parisian style) Located near the Place Massena, 50m from the busstop to/from the airport. Small rooms, but very clean. Tiny bathroom but also fresh and clean. Spic & span bedlinnen and towel (ever to take to the beach). No airco, but we used the fan.... More

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
