“Awful - for us anyway”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2013

I am surprised that this place can even call itself a Hotel. It is more of a youth hostel. The people that run this place rely solely on the fact that it has good location, there is no customer care whatsoever. The noise from rooms next door means you can hear everything going on in the neighbouring room which is awful. It is close to sea, near to the old town on a busy street with lots of restaurants and bars, The hotel is Dirty and unfriendly. We booked it thinking it would be cheap and chearful in a central location. In fact really it is overpriced for what it is. I would not recommend to anyone I knew.

Stayed August 2013, traveled as a couple

Run down hotel
Room dirty, toilet not cleaned.
Air conditioning unit emitting fetid smell.
Booked in and booked out on the same day after securing alternative accomodation.
Expensive for what is on offer.
The location is perfect for cafes and restaurants.
Close proximety to the beach.
We paid for a one night no show which is not ideal, but i considered it a result having moved to a much better hotel.

Room Tip: Avoid this hotel

The Felix is a very average hotel but in a brilliant location, could not be closer to the centre of Nice but the place looks a bit tired and its extremely expensive for what it is!

Can't beat the location though!!

4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2013

We got a great room with a french balcony looking over the street full of cafes and restaurants.. I loved the room decor. The location is perfect - very short walk to the beach/promenade and to the Old city. Staff was friendly.. Internet was flaky but it worked most times.. The shower in the bathroom was a little broken, but we didnt bother to ask them to fix it coz it worked ok and we stayed there for only a couple of days. Excellent value for money.. the hotel was not very expensive compared to others in the similar location.

Every one at hotel Felix was very nice and their service was good. The main downfalls were the broken showerhead, the bathroom door wouldn't shut properly, the bar fridge was borderline unsanitary and broken (would have been better without it). Just lacked the finishing touches ie.. no batteries in the TV remote.. also the WiFi on the top 2 floors didn't work but once in range it was really fast and good.. overall if you want a clean bed and bathroom then this place will suit you fine!

4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2013

we have stayed in the Felix Hotel on 2 different occasions.It is very centrally located,right in the shopping heart of promenade Anglais. whilst it is far from luxurious,it has that certain charm that so few other places have.The Gentleman in charge is so helpful and obliging.He is like your long lost brother,so helpful and friendly.. the rooms are clean and adequate for the price. To me the accommodation is excellent value.Three of us stayed there,my wife self,and Father in law.perfect spot for touring Monte Carlo,Cannes etc.I highly recommend the Felix,great value for money,and very friendly staff.and right in the heart of the action....
