“Fantastic Budget Accomodation”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2011

Last week myself and my girlfriend spent the most wonderful time in Nice. Staying at the Hotel Magnan was superb, our window had a sea view so we could watch the sun rise every day. The room was kept clean all week. New bed sheets and toilet rolls every day as well as cleaning the room every day. The hotel staff were excellent and friendly. This hotel, for the price we paid for the week, was worth every single penny and we are planning to go back there soon. There is a walk to the centre of nice and the old town but get a taxi if you don't want to walk but walk there if you can, the promenade is spectacular. Fantastic place and fantastic hotel, don't go off some of the bad reviews on here, you want budget and comfortable and clean then this is your place, plus its French traditional and makes your stay even more special. The staff speak excellent English however it wouldn't bother me if they didn't, i don't want to go to France to live like the English, I want France to be France and to splendor in its wonderful culture including their romantic language A+++++++++++

Room Tip: Ask for a sea view room or a room with a balcony, the views are breath taking

When you go away you are concerned about pulling up to your hotel thinking what have i booked...........but christ this is bad! I feel bad saying that as the owners were lovely but can they not see how there hotel needs some love and attention! You felt as tho you would fall off the balcony it was so small and tilted. Pipes were coming through the floor, wall paper pealing off the wall, couldnt close the bathroom door, loose tiles, brown bath, toilet wouldnt flush and the lift!!!!!......you most go to see it for the experience! The list goes on!!!!

Room Tip: Use this site! Stay near the Old Town!

The best I can say about this experience is that it tried hard to be clean and the owners were nice people and very helpful. Our room needed a quite some repair had we been staying longer would have asked for a change. There was no sea view the bath room was antiquated with pipes going through holes in the floor and a loose sink, no plug for the bath should we have wanted one.No dining area breakfast was served in our room, where the walls had big scrap marks in the paint work and the fan didn't work. There was a lift that was tiny and sounded as though it could give way at any moment. The walk to the town centre was a good 30mins.
On the good side it was 2 mins from the beech the weather was lovely and a good restaurant right under neath. Bus stop right outside which took us into town in 5min.and several other places. So for the money I guess this is a 50/50 situation.

Room Tip: There were rooms with sea view don't know how to be sure og getting one when booking.

The hotel is being renovated and is now a building site. Work was going on daily but very slowly. Our room had holes in the walls, The shower was broken. One day there was no electricity. The TV had one channel. The furniture was very old and damaged. There was no air conditioning. Most of the time there was no one at the front desk. Complaints to the management drew minimal constructive response. We recommend you avoid Hotel Magnan.

Location wise, it is on the beach and near the bus stop to the airport. But it is a bit of a walk to the center, but the room we stayed in was like a youth hostel, basic amenities, such as a bed and toilet, and that was about it...there was no shower, just a bath tub, so we showered ourselves with large bottles of water, but as I was with friends, we did laugh about it, but if you want a romantic weekend with your loved one, don't stay there, it will spoil the mood...but if you want cheap and convenient, compared to other digs in Nice, then this will be fine..but don't expect much!! :-)

Personally, I would suggest spending a bit more $$$ because once you get there, you do thin to yourself, I should have done it....so do it now!

Magnan has a great location, the side of the hotel overlooks the Promenade des Anglais. Great value for money, we were there in Oct and got the room for Euro 50 per night. The room had a balcony with a partial view of the sea, but great for smoking.

One of the nicest hotels in Nice at an affordable price.
hotel is good in all respects whether rooms [ comfortable] , food, location and helpful staff.
rooms could be little bigger.
Extra Facilities are available at a very reasonable cost.

Overall ambience of the place is very charming
