Friendly service, refurbished rooms and free internet. All elements needed for a correct accommodation. You are in the middle of a green area with a great view. Try to get a room with a pool view. Breakfast and restaurant are descent. Rooms are correct.

Wonderful hotel. Beautiful and peaceful place to spend a good family time. Restaurant and swimming pool area are cosy and calm. Went for a birthday party and the hotel staff organized everything well. In other words sweet week-end... Thank you Novotel Sophia Antipolis Staff. I'll definitely come back for summer. Unfortunately bad weather 😔

I stayed here on business, I was dreading it to be honest as I had a terrible stay at the Ibis in Sophia Antipolis, I only picked the Novotel as it was round the corner from where I was working. However! I was pleasantly surprised when I walked into the reception area. Nice modern feel to the place and very... More

This hotel is located near the highway and is within easy commute both to the shore and the mountains. It is situated in a lovely ,quiet location and the buffet breakfast is very nice indeed. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

the hotel is a standard average confort. Missing particular charme; it is ok to spend max 1 -2 night if engaged with company or affairs in the local area. The Car is necessary to move in the evening. suggested nice or antibes

Booked this hotel on Expedia for Antibes. Little did I know, the hotel was so far away from the city. We were there for two nights so wasn't insurmountable, but no dinner served, bus to and from Antibes was difficult, and the place served no dinner. You'll most likely need a car if staying here.

Stayed a week with the family and thoroughly enjoyed it. There's plenty of parking places, friendly staff, lovely pool and good food. It's set up on the hills north of Antibes - approximately a seven mile drive. It's sizable enough to have decent amenities but not too big to feel swamped. For us, it was just right with a bit...

It is in the middle of nowhere, ovepriced and not worthy 4 stars. - The rooms are small, almost tiny (we're a family of 2 adult and 2 children). - Doors squeeking loudly and fastens in the floor (very hard to open, not possible for...

We stayed 3 nights visiting Nice, Cannes and surrounding areas. The hotel is located in a quiet area. The room was good in size and comfortable. The breakfast and pool were good. The staff was friendly and helpful. We would stay here again.

Recently had two separate stays at the Novotel Sophia Antipolis while travelling on Business. The location is good in Sophia Antipolis - as good as a location in Sophia can be. It's pretty far from everything, so you definitely need a car. But with a car you reach all offices in the area within minutes and you can of course... More
