Overall, we had a fantastic stay in the Longani suite. We were only there for 3 days and it was our first stop on our drive through the South of France, but it was a great choice and don't have any regrets.
The hotel is located on the 4th floor (no elevator, which made it a challenge with our large American luggage) and it was located on a pedestrian street (which made it a challenge for parking). There are many parking garages but there were a plethora of one-way streets and pedestrian only streets which gave our GPS system a challenge when we first arrived. But, it was pretty much in the middle of everything and it was very walkable. It's very close to the waterfront, the main promenades, Old Nice (our favourite part of Nice), Place Massena, and we managed to walk to the Russian Cathedral.
There is nobody to greet you at the door, a simple envelope with details about the room and you really won't see the owners/service until breakfast time and if you stop back in during the afternoon. The service I would say is very "hands-off" in that you felt like you had your privacy; but any interaction I had was always pleasant and attentive (even though my French is very limited). The rooms were perfect, very clean and meticulously cared for. The smaller rooms were all occupied but the largest room with the terrace was all that was available. I thought the terrace, clawfoot tub and view were all very comparable to the price difference. Unfortunately, the WIFI was a little spotty and we really had to stand in the hallway to get good reception; I really shouldn't have been trying to check work emails while on vacation anyways.
I would highly recommend this location for a youngish couple looking for some modern, no-hassle luxury, and privacy without breaking the bank. If WIFI, elevators, and kids running around are your concerns, there are probably other places that would fit your needs better.
