We stayed there for 3 nights from 21 June 2015. This is a nice hotel located in one of the quiet streets behind Lafayette shopping mall. It's clean, safe, rooms are quite basic and the french shutters on the windows lets you feel you really are in France. It's centrally located about a 10 minute walk from the bus station... More

We stayed in June as a large group (we had 3 rooms) and the location was perfect for us - few minutes from main shopping streets and very close to the Old Town (with lots of bars and restaurants). The hotel itself is fine for a short stay - rooms are basic but comfortable. However, we had very mixed experiences... More

Great location, within minutes' walk of Place Messena. We caught the train into and out of Nice and it was a bit of a hike to and from the station with 6 bags and a 5 year old, but that's to be expected. Was definitely shorter on the return walk when we knew how far it was!! The hotel is... More

Had a couple of rooms booked and on arrival staff were very helpful on check in. Room was not at all like the pictures but was clean enough. You can hear everything through the walls and door so we could hear the people in the rooms next to us talking and moving down the corridor which was a little annoying.... More

Friendly and helpful staff. There were four of us so we booked a quad room. It was clean and roomy (by European standards). We had a small balcony and enjoyed looking out over the street. Great wifi in room. No street noise at night; could hear a little hallway noise, but never late at night. If you are adventurous or... More

The hotel is very well located at the center of Nice near Place Massena (just next to Lafayette store). It's a 20 minutes ride from the airport, just take the bus Ligne d'azur no. 98 from the airport to the stop of Place Massena (10 min walk to the hotel) or stop Nice Albert Ier (5 min walk).

The hotel was average nothing special I wouldn't return, the staff weren't the friendliest either. I loved Nice chilled out relaxed atmosphere. Cool old town with great bars nice beach to walk along and loss of yachts to view.
