Perfect location, less than 5 minutes to Promenade, 5/10 minutes to tramway with a myriadof shops, eateries and bars right on the doorstep. Very friendly and helpful staff who speak good English. Room 4 overlooks Rue de la France and all its bustle but good double glazes doors keep out noise. Small balcony. The shower is pretty small and could... More

We booked our trip to Nice at very last minute and were very lucky to find availability in this hotel. It was exactly what we are looking for. It's location was perfect, a short walk to the beach and also right in the middle of shopping street Masena, a very short walk to the old town. we expected the room... More

A short walk to the beach and the old city along with lots of restaurants nearby. The staff were friendly and our room was clean. We particularly enjoyed the balcony in our room which overlooked a quiet street below. Be prepared for a bit of a stair climb (or a tight ride on the elevator).

We had a lovely big room with a terrace that had amazing views over the beautiful streets. The noise outside was never a problem even though it was overlooking a busy street. However, the noise in the hotel from other rooms was a little annoying as it meant you could not lay in as the walls were too thin! I... More

5 of us have just returned from staying at the Solara, and we will definitely return. We had a room each, on the 5th floor, so we all had a terrace. The rooms are very clean, comfortable, and the bathrooms new. The staff are extra helpful, nothing is too much trouble. The Hotel is easy to get to from the... More

Had a nice, big room with a huge balcony overlooking the walking street. The bathroom was new and spacious, too. Friendy owner, able to give you the necessary information that you need for a pleasant stay. The location is very good as it is just at the walking street and everything is in walking distance. The location was very silent... More

We were very happy when we arrived at Hotel Solara, we did not expect to be so close to the beach and shopping. We easily explored old town and surrounding area by walking. It is reasonably close to train station also. There are many restaurants in the area also. The elevator is quite small but works for when you have... More

The hotel is on the top floor of the building and access is by a tiny lift, so cases might have to be taken up in relays. The staff were all helpful and charming. The room was clean and comfortable with a balcony on which we ate breakfast. As we don't care to eat much in the mornings we ordered... More

It's a 2 stars hotel, so don't expect much. The room is tiny but somewhat clean. The shower is super tiny even for a small petite woman like me, I can't imagine how a 200+ lbs. person would be able to move around. Our room has a balcony looking out to the Rue de France which is very nice, the... More
