“Quirky Boutique Hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed 6 days ago NEW

We had a lovely, relaxing stay in this stylish hotel. Staff were efficient, helpful and friendly. Hotel was located amongst the 'buzz' but still peaceful and quiet. Room was a decent size, with quiet air con and beautifully decorated. Breakfast till 10.30, provided a good variety of choices, handy although a little pricey.

Small hotel well located by the flower market and one block from the Promenade. Strange, dated decor and tiny bedrooms and average bathrooms. Only one person could move about at a time. We had a room overlooking a sort of roof garden and left our windows open at night which was a plus as I detest air con. The pillows were horrible ( I like down pillows) and these gave me a neck ache. The breakfast was good, with fruit, yoghurts, breads, cheese, cold meats, eggs etc etc. The coffee however was deplorable, it tasted like paint stripper. The wifi worked very well (so important) , the reception staff were friendly and helpful and the young male waiter at breakfast very cheery. There is a small bar - nothing special but a nice to have. I would stay again.

Room Tip: First floor is good as you don't have to wait for the lift and courtyard facing was very quiet

We arrived in the middle of FIFA and the start of school holidays.
It was great to be back on French soil, we were greeted genuinely and all our questions were answered well. We had found previously in other countries staff were keen to tell us what they thought we should know. We loved the location and again easy access to transport and we travelled by train to Cannes for a day trip and did a tour of Monaco and Monte Carlo
Which were both fun. Last night in Nice we had dinner on the beach, l would skip this and possibly just have drinks with friends. There are numerous restaurants and street stalls close by. We did have noise issues even though France lost.
The room was bright and airy, the breakfast was good. A great place for lots of action, friendly people and plenty to do.

Stayed July 2014

Arrived early, staff efficient and polite. Room was apparently being cleaned (more of that later).

Nice bathroom, very nice bed and pillows, tea and coffee etc. But, windows had only shutters, no curtains or blinds, so it was light early and noisy.

Worst of all the room was tired and dirty. I could write the word "DUST" on the window seat, the carpet had many cigarette burns and the bedside table was very scruffy.

Good location, but tired rooms. The website shows the beach, but it's over the road and 20 Euros each to use.

Had a 7 day stay in mid June 2014 as a couple.
Hotel has great historic links with artists and writers but no obvious evidence since hotel had makeover about ten years ago. The big attraction is its location ,short walk to pebbly beach and large long promenade and equally short walk to Place Massenna and main restaurants as well as flower market and Opera house. Reception area is modern and very business orientated,good ,polite staff.The Hotel offers free wifi in room and large LCD tv,good bright bathroom.Room a little dark and comparitively small despite being superior,wonder what standard was! Hotel has private section of beach,but despite preferential rates was 60 euros a day for a couple including loungers and a parasol and being in row nearest the sea.Ensure you have lightweight sea sandals (can get in local shops for 10 euros)as pebbles are ruthless on feet!Breakfast at Hotel is 20 euros a day each, local cafes offer coffee or tea, fruit juice and either pain au chocalat or croissant for 5,50 euros each person.

Big attractions include walking and using local public transport along coast either side of Nice,but beware of strikes.We walked up to Cimiez to see an art museum only to find it shut due to strike,nothing on website just a scribbled handwritten message outside building,train staff struck for four of seven day holiday,putting pressure on bus services.

Room Tip: Being well sited can be affected late at night by noise,ask for double glazed room with air conditio...

We have just got back this morning from a 3 night stay. Strange arrival as I had booked a room with twin beds specified as I was holidaying with a friend. When we arrived we found one huge double bed and one sofa with no more than a sheet over it to make it into a bed. It would have been far too hot as the sofa was covered by a wool felt cover and also was not comfortable. When I telephoned to enquire I was told we had been upgraded but there was nothing to be done about the bed situation. Our room was huge and quiet so we were happy to stay put, get 2 single duvets and share the bed as it was so big. However I expect others in our situation might have been annoyed. On the plus side the location cannot be beaten and reception and housekeeping were helpful and friendly. Surprisingly quiet for the centre of Nice. Our room was very clean and well appointed (other than bed-wise!). Despite the bed debacle I would return.

Solid hotel well placed near Vieux Nice. Rooms of a decent size, and the hotel does things like wifi and electric sockets well (Odd how few hotels have worked out that guests need to recharge kit). Breakfast is standard buffet; only one quibble: why has the quality of croissants in French hotels deteriorated so badly?
