My partner and I stayed at the Hotel Helvetique for the weekend of the Gran Prix 2013. The room was clean and lovely and the staff were helpful and friendly.

Pros: great location, nice looking hotel in nice area. Cons: Very difficult to park or even stop a car around the hotel. Windows have no screens and mosquitos fly in and drink blood out of you during the night.

Stayed for 3 nights during the third week of August with my daughter and her family. My daughter and son-in-law were very please with the bright bathroom and they particularly like the balcony which you can see the street. I found the room facing the street a bit noisy, but was okay after the window was closed. The size of... More

This was a perfect location, ideal for all the popular tourist locations in Nice. Trams and bus services are all nearby and is about 15-20mins walk from train station. The staff in the hotel were very helpful, we had asked for certain requirements for our room and were all fullfilled. The bathroom was very modern, sheets and towels were changed... More

Not sure what the 5-star reviews of this hotel are about, but this was the worst hotel experience on our trip. The only thing going for this hotel is the location - which is maybe three blocks from the beach and old town, restaurants and cafes. The hotel is easily accessed buy the tram (2 stops from the train station),... More

I stayed here a few days ago with my girlfriend for three nights, and we were pleasantly surprised. On arrival we were greeted by a friendly male staff member who was very polite and helpful. He grabbed a city map and showed us where the affordable restaurants were, tourist attractions and shopping etc. The staff were excellent in every way.... More

Stayed here for 4 nights with a friend. The location could not be more perfect for the price. It is steps to Place Massena, next door to Galerie Lafayette, tram close by, and a 20 minute walk to the bus stop to go to near by towns. We had a room facing the street, but once the windows were closed,... More
