“Nice in Nice”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2011

Very charming hotel, centrally located in Nice with pleasant staff. Had a "superior" double room with french balconies, a lot of character, well working AC, free Wifi and, not least, an excellent bed. Room towards the street but calm at night. Good breakfast buffet. Would definitely return.

I stayed here with my mother during July and absolutely loved this hotel!
The location, the rooms, the cleanliness, the staff and the breakfast were all fantastic!!

The staff were especially helpful and answered all of out questions.

The rooms are very clean and have a window which we left open at night as we liked the fresh air. The bathrooms were also very clean and spacious.

I highly recommend this hotel!

A great 3 star hotel in central Nice, our room had two beautiful french windows opening on little balconies, lots of character, although our room faced a street there was little noise at nighttime. The room was spacious and had been recently re-decorated very tastefully with nice furniture, the bed was new and very comfortable. The bathroom was small, but new and spotlessly clean. I would definitely recommend if you are looking for a hotel with both charm and mod cons.

The airport bus drops you one block away and is a few minutes stroll to the beach. There is also lovely garden to sit in and free wifi.

Room Tip: It was worth the upgrade for an airconditioned room if travelling in summer

Everyone on Tripadvisor gave this lovely hotel top marks, so do I. Its very easy to find as it is located just a few meters behind the Negressco hotel, an easy landmark. Our recently renovated room was just lovely and looked onto the sweet little garden space. Not the biggest room in the world, but it was so pretty, and everything worked. A large carafe of plonk served al fresco was 15 euros, accompanied by a bowl of crisps. Apparently, the free wifi worked well, too. I was on hols so didn't even try it. The stqff are very helpful and pleasant, and of course, we'll be back...

Room Tip: A garden view is best, I'm sure.

Looking in Nice you can find 600€+ hotels or 100€ hotels. We found Rivoli through Travel Advisor, it is well located a couple of blocks from the Promenade and easy walking to most of central Nice. The hotel is generally a "B" grade but even the superior room was small an tight with small shower room and WC in other location. There is no elevator so bags need to be carried up the stairs. While WiFi is complimentary it did not work in our room and need to sit in hallway to get connections. If looking for fair value in good location Rivoli is OK but don't expect high luxury.

New refurbished single. Very good AC. Large windows. Hangers and shelves. Many bus stops within 2 blocks. Bus is only 1 euro. 2 1/2 blocks to beach. Internet access very good. May need to call or use code to enter after midnight. Chair but no desk in room.

We stayed here for for 3 nights after being in St Tropez. We found it to be good value and the staff friendly and courteous. Only down side was no lift. We were given room 20, I hauled everything up 2 flights and then we changed to room 1. Everything small and cosy but it was what we wanted. Its location is good for the station, beach and the walk to the old part of town and we did day trips to Cannes and Monaco. I really liked Nice and the hotel was in a more residential area but that was fine by me as I live in one my self anyway. The staff were very good and I would recommend this hotel if you want to sight see rather than rest up in a hotel relaxing. There are plenty of local shops near by to buy water etc
