The location of this hotel is right in old town, across the street from the Mediterranean Sea, next to the Opera, and close to the outdoor market. You can easily go across the street and walk along the Promenade des Anglais. The market is only a few blocks away. It is a farmers market by day and at night the area where the stalls were are replaced by additional restaurant seating. From this hotel it's an easy walk to the shops on Rue Massena and other places as well.
We stayed in this hotel for 6 nights at the end of May into June. The hotel doesn't have an elevator, luckily the walk up the stairs with the luggage wasn't that bad. The hallways are narrow. At night they have a door bell you can press after 10 PM to let you back in the hotel. This is to ensure the safety of the guests.
We got a room on the 2nd floor facing Rue Saint-Francois de Paule. From our balcony you can see Auer (a place that sells chocolate and dried fruit) and an olive store. Our room was loft style with a balcony. To get to the bed you have to go up a small staircase to the loft. I don't think this room is meant for a tall person. My husband is 6'2" and had to duck before he got into bed or he would've hit his head on the ceiling. There's less than a foot of space between the foot of the bed and the wall. If you're the unlucky person to get the side of the bed closest to the wall, you better hope that you don't have to get up at night. I had to go to the bathroom at night and was forced to climb over my husband to get out of the bed.
The hotel has free wifi. It's pretty easy to use, but the service is spotty. The signal strength could be good one minute and gone the next. It got to be a bit annoying, but was good enough for checking email and surfing the web.
The check in/out process was really easy and painless. The person at the desk was very nice and helpful. When we checked out she even called a cab for us.
If you're looking for a hotel with a great location, this is the place to be. If you're looking for a hotel that has lots of amenities in the hotel and a large room, then you may want to stay somewhere else. Overall, the location mattered to us more than the size of the room and the amenities. We would stay here again.
