We had a 3 nights stay in mid May and paid the extra to have a deluxe room. We found this rooom to be smaller than expected and guess that it was just one of the standard rooms with a bigger bed. That said, the room was clean and well equiped and the bathroom was small but attractive with a good shower.
WiFi is free throughout the hotel but we found access in the room was poor and kept dropping out at busy times.
The hotel is in a quiet business/residential area within easy walking distance of the old town and the main restaurant areas. We took the number 98 bus from the airport that travels along the main promenade towards the port. This hotel is a short walk from the "Gustav" bustop.
Our rate included breakfast and we found that the selection of food was standard for a Mercure hotel and adequate but not very good value for money. The restaurant is crammed into a corner of the lobby and the tables are very close together which we found very unpleasant when sitting shoulder to shoulder with other guests at busy times.
On our last day we discovered that there was a well equiped sunbathing area on the roof. Nobody had pointed this out to us and the only clue was that there was an extra button on one of the two lifts to floor 7. There is no information about the hotel facilities in the room and it would have enhanced our stay if we had been told about this area when we arrived.
All in all we would recommend this hotel for a short stay close to all the main attractions of Nice. We thought that was rather expensive when compared with similar hotels elsewhere in France.
