Nice hotel, we visited this hotel beginning of August 2014. We planned this trip later than we should have in all honesty and were somewhat limited in our options as a family ! However, this hotel which is located what seems to be miles away from Nice (for us was OK as we had a motor, which I would like... More

We tried and failed to get a room in nearby Vence so settled for this hotel at the last minute. Prices are lower than in Nice and we didn't want the bother of getting into and out of Nice. Up in La Gaude there are some nice views down to the sea. The hotel was nothing special but clean and... More

My boyfriend and I stayed in the hotel 2 nights. Hotel is not bad, but if you decided to come to Nice, would be better to stay in the hotel in Nice. Quite far away to go to Hotel du Baou, even if you are by car. The only thing why you can choose this hotel - only if you... More

I led a group tour of 45 pax and stayed at this hotel for two nights from 19th to 20th May 2014 The hotel is located in scenic and peaceful surroundings and you can enjoy the view provided you get a front facing room. When we checked in on the evening of the 19th I found the lone gentleman at... More

This was a business trip and with work nearby it was better to stay out of Nice rather than in it. Prices were substantially lower too. The hotel is out of the way but has a pleasant setting. The room was small but comfortable and clean. Breakfast was ok. Staff were helpful. Parking not a problem.

Good hotel for a very good price. Staff is nice and available. Rooms are small but very clean and well equipped. My room had a very nice view on the mountain, I didn't try the breakfast. No problem to park your car and easy to find.

I stayed here just because it's very close to the IBM La Gaude Office and all the hotel in Nice are booked out becuase of the Monaco Grand Prix... The hotel is very very normal and has a very good view but nothing more than that. I prefer to stay other hotels next time.

This hotel is not as it is on the pictures. It is worth even 1 star , I am not talking about 3 stars that they pretend to be. Staff rude. Hotel is dirty and in the middle of nowhere. We were given room with everything broken wardrobe etc.... the main problem was that room lock was broken it wasn't... More

Yes its true. A great little stop off in the Riveara A car is a must here. It's great for a base to explore the area and the staff will make every effort to accomodate your needs. It does look old and tired from the front but inside it is clean, modern and welcoming. The bedroom we stayed in was... More

The Du Baou hotel is located on a small hill above the tiny settlement of La Gaude. It's strongest asset is arguably the view of the French Alps and the coastline below. That, and the peace and quiet and cool air. It's a small hotel but somehow manages to cram 50+ rooms in. It's not much to look at, but... More
