“CONVENIENT HOTEL NEAR NICE AIRPORT”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2012

Very convenient for airport; the hotel provides a free shuttle service every 30 minutes to the airport - a real bonus.
Bus into Nice is about 10 minutes walk away.
The rooms are comfortable and clean and the staff very helpful.
Restaurant is OK - a bit pricey but adequate and convenient as there are no other restaurants really nearby other than other chain hotels.
Would stay there again.

A hotel near the waterfront and Nice airport. It was buzzing with businessmen in the foyer and included a smart restaurant on the same floor.

The restaurant would please any traveller who appreciate French cuisine. But the service was slow; we had to wait between 30 to 45 mins for each course. We were going to have breakfast but we just didn't time to wait for service.

The room is a tad disappointing - it felt more like an Etaphotel room than a room for €128 per night. The luxuries were afforded to the communal areas just didn't seem evident in the bedroom. I would stay here again but only if I was desperate.

Stayed in this hotel for work. The room was clean and new but a lot smaller from other Novotels I stayed in. No iron in the room in a business hotel seems a little weird to me. Same Novotel crappy bed linens and pillows as all the other ones I've stayed in. In my room the big shower wasn't working so I had to use a small douche also you have to park in a garage and all the time when you have to get off the car to ring a bell and wait for them to answer to put your car inside. No pool or fitness services. The location is not bad if you need to be close to the airport right in front of the ocean by the airport and probably 8 min drive from the old town.
Unfortunately the worst of the hotel is the restaurant, try at all costs avoid eating there. Food is bad, service is not attentive at all both times I ordered once in room and another in the restaurant they forgot the sauce that came with meat. Also very dirty glasses. If you're going not for business I think you can find something better for the same price.

An average hotel with 10 minute walk to airport. There is an airport shuttle but it seems easier to walk. Not that impressed with the room itself. However, the hotel staff was very friendly and helpful. The 23 bus line stop is 5 minute walk with easy access to city center.

We chose this hotel as we wanted to stay in a well known chain near Nice Airport.
The Plus Points include, convenient airport location with complimentary transfers, spacious rooms and comfortable beds. Offers the standard Novotel experience.
The hotel could do better with the dining section.
Some negatives were: 1. Taxis were not easily available. 2. The area around the hotel was filled with street walkers during the evenings.

Thank you for your comments regarding your stay at my hotel.

Regarding the external environment, we are fully aware of the phenomenon. We ensure a security guard at the security of the hotel, that the situation is improving, and we actively participate in neighborhood meetings.

I read the reviews on this site, and had to check it was the same hotel I checked out from yesterday morning! The room was small, and smelled awful. The sheets I am sure must have been washed, sometime this month, the food in the restaurant was inedible, there is no gym, no hammam. Thankfully I travel with slippers, the carpet was disgusting. The "towels" were so threadbare I could hardly dry myself. Having just come from a wonderful holiday in Sanremo Italy where I paid much less for a far superior hotel , and comparing the two it was night and day. How Novotel attracts any business from the USA is a mystery. The prices were outrageoius, for a so called Four Star hotel. The staff was rude, unfriendly, and when I asked about a gym, they pointed to a poster on the lobby and told me to take a taxi to a nearby gym

Room Tip: Look for another hotel.

I'm not arguing about an opinion that is personal but saddens me greatly.
I can only regret the negative experience that you have lived.

Not far from the airport, this hotel is very trendy, clean, and at the level of any expectencies. The staff is very friendly and welcoming. Not far from the city, you have access to the buses or taxis very quickly. The room itself had a view on the beach. However it was a little bit too small from what we expected. The staff was very friendly and did not charge us for staying one hour longer than we have been supposed to.

Room Tip: Double room are probably 24 sqm. We liked the corner for the view on the beach
