My friend & I stayed in May for 3 nights. Its super convenient and a bargain for Nice. The hike up staircases unrelated to the accommodation are initially off putting but you get used to it. If you don't intend spending time lounging in your hotel room and want to get on with exploring Nice- this hotel is a good... More

Location is great but that's where it ends..., the owner has no interest in you at all... Me and my friend stayed there for 2 nights - our electricity went on the second night when we were getting ready to enjoy our last night out In Nice. We tried to call an "emergency number" which was left at the reception... More

Me and my boyfriend stayed here for 2 nights over the Bank Holiday weekend in July. We chose this hotel because it was great for location and seemed like it would be ok for a long weekend away. The staff were friendly but I think this hotel is quite overpriced for what it offers. The room was very basic and... More

Small (family-owned?) boutique hotel. Great location as mentioned by everyone else. Short walk/streetcar ride to the train station. Right smack in the middle of all the action in Nice. Walkable distance to the beach and many, many restaurants, yet it also has a nice isolated feeling and doesn't feel noisy or crowded. As mentioned by other reviewers, you do have... More

Stayed for three nights – the hotel is easy to find in a great central location to everything. On arrival there are two sets of stairs to a shabby landing. The room I had (5) was clean but again shabby. No view. I think all of this is fine if the price was a little less – but for what... More

I visited Nice for 1 night during a busy time and did not want to spend a ton of money so selected Hotel Rex. The rooms are a few flights up inside a building, so not for everyone. The room is bare bones; bathroom is very small. I agree with other reviews that the location is great and the staff... More

We liked our weekend at Rex. The location is amazing, close to everything. The rooms cute and quiet. The breakfast is delicious and good value, better than in the tourist restaurants in Rue Massena. Wifi a little weak.

This walk-up hotel is fine, though looking a little faded -- central town location, nice enough room with small but adequate bathroom. The terrace was closed for repairs. Wifi worked sporadically if at all, which was important to me -- maybe not to all.

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...
