“Clean but noisy room”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2013

The overall amenities of the room and lobby were clean/neat, but if you face any of the streets, you are in trouble. Very loud, almost anything moving outside will be heard in the room. Walls and pipes are all paper thin, so expect to hear anything going on around you.

Some of the front desk staff were very friendly! Others weren't as helpful (in terms of restaurants/coffee shops) that earlier reviews suggested. I also had a leaky pipe in my room which dripped onto my bed. It got resolved (on day 3).

Not bad, and location is quite close to the main avenue, but perhapsthere is better value out there.

This was our 2nd trip to Nice but we couldn't remember where we had stayed. So it was quite a surprise to discover we had picked the same hotel as 3 years ago!

The main attraction is the location - convenient for shopping, train station, buses etc. The staff are friendly & helpful, the room was comfortable & reasonable in size & was kept very clean. There is road noise which dies down later at night & there can be noise from the nearby guests but I guess that is the luck of the draw. The lift is very small but it served its purpose although if you have large suitcases it would be a tight fit.

There are toiletries provided & replenished which is very handy if you only have hand luggage. There is also a kettle with tea & coffee & a fridge both of which we found extremely useful when we returned from our daily travels - especially since many of the cafes charge a euro more for their hot drinks after 3pm ( a 30-50% increase seems somewhat steep to me based solely on the time of day). I believe kettles/fridges are not so common in hotels in Europe as they are in the UK so they were much appreciated.

The breakfast was still 12 euro & we didn't indulge as we still felt it was too dear. In fairness, the cafes around were more expensive than our previous trip but the most we paid was 16 euros for two. As we travelled by train on several days, we just had coffee & croissant at the café beside the station which did the trick nicely.

A word of advice :-

If travelling by train & paying cash, get your tickets in the large room at the right side of the station. Allow 15 mins as the queue can be slow. This was at start of June so I am sure it will get busier. The walk to the station took 10 - 15 mins.

If we return to Nice, we would stay in this hotel again. It isn't fancy but it is clean, the staff are friendly & it served our purposes perfectly.

Room Tip: Rooms at the back would be quieter as there is quite a bit of road noise at the front although it do...

The hotel is in a convenient location, not far from the promenade or the railway station. Rooms are of good size (we opted for triple sharing room), clean and well maintained. Breakfast though not elaborate was good and satisfying. But those expecting sea facing rooms should not opt for this hotel, as it is not a sea facing hotel.

Rooms were neat and clean, however was not pleased with the reception. We had booked our rooms months in advance and had specifically requested for 2 queen and 2 twins. However they only gave us 1 queen and 3 twins. This was despite us being very specific about our room requirements beforehand. When we asked if we could have our rooms changed, they just said they were fully booked and that they would push 2 beds together. Lady at desk was not very helpful. Only when asked did she say that the next queen room would be available in 2 days time which we accepted. Felt that she could have offered more options. The icing on the cake was when she informed us that we were welcome to change hotels, which was unnecessary.
Not a good experience or a start to our holiday and will most certainly not return to this hotel.

I fully agree with the recent positive reviews; nice staff, clean rooms, nice breakfast, and great location! And yes, I think that is the smallest lift I have ever been in...
I would definitely stay again!

We stayed in Nice in April for 4 days at the end of a riverboat cruise. We picked this hotel because the location seemed right in the middle of everything. You could walk to the promenade, old town and everywhere for dinner. There is no parking in the hotel, but there is paid parking just a block away. The hotel is a bit loud for sleeping, but you are in the center of everthing. We were on the front, so rooms on the side or back may be a bit quieter. The staff were helpful, but the breakfast was basic. Nice is a great city to explore. I am not sure if I would come back to this hotel as it is not bad, but is not great or maybe see what other options are out there.

Room Tip: Rooms at the front are loud at night

We normally stay at another hotel on the Promenade but as we were only flying into Nice for the GP and were therefore just looking for a base, we decided to look for a cheaper option. Based on the Tripadvisor reviews we booked this hotel. Check in was easy and yes, the lift is small to say the least, but we only used it to take our bags up and back down again, opting to use the stairs the rest of the time. We were on the 3rd floor with a side room which was clean, although it is dated and looks in need of a cosmetic spruce up, although a little small, but as this is a City to be expected. Tea and coffee provided so at least you could have a drink in your room. We had a shower only in our room, which was spotless, and plenty of hot water. We only had breakfast one day in the hotel and whilst it was ok, not a huge amount of choice. We did however like the free coffee etc downstairs along with croissants which were provided once breakfast was over and throughout the day. Also the free Wifi was excellent. Good base between the Promenade and the train centre.
