This is a quintessential little French hotel. The entry is up two sets of stairs and across an open passage. The second set of stairs is steep. Once you negotiate the entrance doors and the stairs, you are confronted with a charming little hotel and the equally charming owners. The rooms are reasonably sized and the bathrooms are neat and...

Centrally located, clean and friendly hotel. Beds were comfortable, the owners were very helpful. The wifi was out in our room but I was able to used the lobby's wifi. There are many restaurants and coffee shops near the hotel. Lots of stairs so pack light!

This was a very clean and friendly little hotel which served my purposes just fine. The beds were comfortable. I spend my time out of my room and just use it to sleep and take a shower and if you don't hang out in a room this may be for you. The down side is for those who have problems... More

A very nice, off-the-beaten-track-but-still-in-the-middle-of-where-it-all-happens, hotel in Nice. The entrance is in a very busy shopping street near the beautiful Place Massena. But when you enter the hotel, you enter a nice oasis of peace and quit. Service is friendly and the rooms have character: Simple, clean and charming. There is one downside: The rooms are not soundproof. So, if you... More

Stayed here for one night visit to Nice. The street it is on is actually closed to traffic (rue Massina). Our gps showed that you could drive to it but the road to turn onto is a tramway. You need to park at the place Massina underground parking. When you come out of lot after parking the hotel entrance is... More

This hotel is really well located for the beach and sightseeing in Nice and is good value. The hostess is very accomodating and while the rooms are not very large they have everything you need and it is super clean. The wifi can be a bit slow at times and the walls are paper thin but there was something very... More

We stayed in three different rooms, having stayed here at the start and end of the holiday. The location was superb - very central but hidden away, so it's quiet. Knowing Nice isn't cheap, we were looking for somewhere of reasonable quality but still with a bit of character, which was exactly what we got. Staff were very helpful and... More

Stayed here for one night at the beginning of our honeymoon, before traveling to Italy for the rest of our trip. Very basic hotel, but great location and OK price point (for Nice, where everything else is super expensive), especially for just one night. Our room had 2 rooms - one smaller with a twin size bed and couch, with... More

We stayed in hotel rex just one night but it was a pleasant surprise. The building itself is a bit old but when you enter the hotel you realise that everything is chosen very carefully and it is so charming and clean. I have lived in France for a while and i felt it was very french style. The location... More

We had a wonderful time in NIce. Nice is a busy city with lots of foot traffic. There are multiple restaurants and stores and of course the Mediterranean. The Hotel Rex provided us with a place to escape to. It was clean, quiet and very peaceful. It is tucked away in the middle of an ancient building, a bit hidden,... More
