The hotel is really close to the sea, there is a shop almost behind the corner. It takes you 10-15 minutes to reach the city centre, but you go straight along Rue de France - and here you are, Garibaldi Square :) Moreover - free fast wifi right in your room! The staff is friendly and helpful (there are Russian... More

We arrived at the hotel and the room was quite different to the pictures. Grey, bland, dirty shower.... we were asked if we could move rooms and were told it was full, so asked for a refund but were told we had to ring Expedia to discuss it further. They gave us a full refund and we found a new... More

Very good short trip. With better roomstandard your hotel would be an excellent place to return to every year. Fantastic location, close to everything and very nice and helpful personal. Breakfast OK but could be better with some ham and sausage and perhabes breadalternative for glutenintollerant.

I have never encounterd such a rude person and cann't belive that she is allowed to work at the desk. That is really pitty, because the location/rooms... More

This hotel is in a great location. We had a balcony room and could see the sea. It is just a short walk to the Promenade Des Anglais and is well served by buses. We did have to wander quite a bit to find a nice place to eat but that is the fun of being in Nice.

If you are looking for a clean, and reasonably priced hotel, this is a good deal. If you are counting on being able to use the Internet, sleeping on a decent mattress, or getting a few tips from the front desk, you might be better off looking elsewhere. Locarno was nice and clean, and we got the double room for... More

Very good value, we booked htis hotel in November and got an excellent rate. In fact they are a solid 15 minute along a main shopping street to the 'Old Nice City' which is where most people head to eat and drink. Hotel in just 125 metres from Promenade Des Anglais. Basic but spacious rooms. Number 23 bus to/from airport... More

We stayed 3 nights at this hotel in the center of Nice. The rooms were of an average side for a city center hotel. Our room had a balcony and the bathroom was well appointed. The breakfast was adequate, and the WiFi worked in the rooms. It was a short walk to the beach, or to the shopping area. The... More

Having stayed in Nice several times before, the Locarno was a good find. I could not fault the service at reception. English is spoken by some of the staff but not all. But, you are in France, and I always think it is fun to at least have a go at speaking the language! We had a triple room with... More
