“Great clean comfy place to stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed 5 days ago NEW

Great hotel in a great location. Just a block from the sea. Spent 2 nights in Nice. Took bus 98 from airport.. Only a 5 minute walk to hotel. Hotel was very clean. Had no issues. The bed was comfy. The room is small for the 3 of us, but there are plenty of cubbies to store everything. They have a cute patio to hang out in. Wifi was great. My first time to Nice and found this hotel to be close to everything. Perfect place to stay when all you need it for is to sleep as we were out all day exploring. Plenty of shopping and restaurants close by. Did not have breakfast in hotel. There are plenty of cafes around to find breakfast. Train station only a 20 minute walk where we took it to go to Monte Carlo. Would definitely stay here again if I came to Nice.

Room Tip: Our room overlooked the patio. Really cute hotel

Small hotel with nice room and good bathroom. Three choices for breakfast, nice breakfast room with outdoors tables as well. Excellent location close to Prom. des Anglais and the shopping streets leading to Place Massena. Godd value for the money!

I chose to stay at the Hotel de la Fontaine because of its good value / good location / good Tripadvisor rating. Simply put, you get what you pay for...an overall, pretty average stay.

The room itself is clean, but a few details are missed. The orange bed runner was SOOOOO filthy - it had stains, discolorations, and hair (that didn't belong to me!). The room smelled old and stale - makes sense, since it has air conditioning, but it wouldn't work throughout our stay. Since we chose a street-facing room, sleeping with the windows open meant being awake all night - the hotel faces the Rue de France, which was active until at least 4 AM! The sounds of shouting, loud motorbikes and the smell of smoke filled our room when we were trying to sleep. The maid kept the room clean, but missed some big details - he / she forgot to refill our tissue box and apparently used the toilet brush with toilet paper in the toilet (TP was clumped onto the brush when we returned to the room after cleaning).

The hotel staff was wonderful - they quickly answered all questions asked via E-mail, offered to book a taxi for our return to the airport (don't take a taxi - the 98 bus is SO easy and convenient!), and made the check in / out process smooth and easy. Had the AC worked and the orange bed runner been clean, I'd recommend this hotel to other travelers...sadly, I can't!

HOTEL DE LA FON... N, Responsable relations clients at Hotel de la Fontaine, responded to this review, 1 week ago
Thanks a lot for your recent stay with us. We're sorry and disappointed that we didn't provide a full satisfaction. Please take notice that the cleanliness is one of our priorities. Our rooms have got different colors and different decoration as our guests tastes are also different. If you don't like ornage, we can find you green,blue,mauve or neutral beige. Our A/C works perfectly, but in the beginning of April the températures were low, around 7-8 °C in the morning and some guests still needed the heating, so the A/C wasn't available.We hope to welcome you again in the future.
Kind regards

I cannot recommend this hotel highly enough. Great location. Friendly, helpful, English speaking staff. Beautiful courtyard for breakfast. While small, the room was clean and light, and well furnished.

I booked as part of a British Airways deal, and would definitely do it again!

Beautiful little hotel: close to the beach, a plethora of restaurants and shops; easy to find from the airport and it has excellent staff. I would recommend getting a bus from the airport to hotel as this is much cheaper than pre booking a transfer or getting a taxi.

The rooms are modern and the beds are very comfortable. Both my boyfriend and I were really pleased with the size of the room (we weren't expecting tons and tons of space considering this is one of the cheaper hotel's in Nice) but we were pleasantly surprised and had no complaints.

Breakfast at this hotel was brilliant- you have so much to choose from, you really are spoilt for choice.

The hotel is in an excellent location and is not too expensive. What more could you ask for?

Thanks for an excellent stay!

We stayed in this hotel over the Eastern holidays and we were very satisfied. We felt well from the first to the last minute. The hotel is located a few footsteps from the beach and from the pedestrian part of Rue de France and Rue Massena with all the shops and excellent restaurants. The room was small but very comfortable, functional, clean and the staff very friendly and helpful. We can only recommend this hotel and we will for sure come back.
