Alright so there were a few problems with this hotel. For example, we only got one towel to last us a week. However, there are also a lot of positives about the hotel. For example, the TV which had plenty of channels free of charge, wifi which worked amazingly, the pool, tennis court, table tennis. There's plenty of little areas... More

Their own website contains mis information. The bar which the website and in romm information say is open to midnight was not open at all. Turned up expecting to be able to get at least a drink and a snack, having rung up the day before to check a late night arrival was no issue only to be directed over... More

It was an average hotel, we stayed 2 nights, room was clean, but there were some ants on the wall. Bathroom was also good. There was a long way from lobby to our room. Breakfast was average, there were choices. However, plates and tables and glasses were not clean, they smelled... Bed also was very small for two people.. If... More

If your idea of a room is to sleep in a monastic cell then this is the hotel for you. The staff are friendly enough but the hotel seems to cater for large groups of holidaymakers from Germany, Holland etc and breakfast was the closest experience to a rugby scrum I have had since I played the game. Food, juice... More

Rooms clean but things don't work. Internet did not work all night and there was just 1 guy at the reception who did nothing but checkin. The Tv remote did not have batteries and the guy asks me to come to the reception to pick them up. The bath tap cannot open fully and ivhad to have a low pressure... More

Pros: friendly staff, close to the business village Cons: old, cold, prehistoric amenities, noisy heater/ac unit, restaurant menu just poor... food quality even worse, cost per night: 150 euros... disgrace for quality they offer In summary: Never again!

Worst location. Came for a conference and booked this hotel because they told me they had a shuttle service. This is what happened: No shuttle available. Hotel tells me to take the city bus from Nice. I take it. It drops me off at a random bus station. The hotel staff said the bus station was a 10 minute walk... More

This place is a dump. We booked in but left without sleeping in the dingy cramped dormitory style room. Water was leaking into the room and the corridors were covered in cheap, stained, carpet. No effort has been made to tidy the place up. Until the hotel learns to look after the place and upgrade the hostel style rooms nobody... More

If you need to be in the Parc de Sophia Antipolis on business the location would be the only reason to stay here, only if you're out of luck though as there are plenty of better hotels nearby! The hotel feels like a cross between a Youth Hostel (long dark corridors with small rooms on either side) and a public... More

If you want to visit or to stay into a nice, quiet and elegant place, Media Garden is the best choice you can do. Rooms are clean, there is a large pool outside and internet is free. The food is not so various but if you choose to eat into an other place and only to take breakfast here it... More
