“THE place to stay in Nice”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 17, 2013

Maxime and Léa are incredibly kind hosts and they perfectly know what it is to travel.
We actually met them in Latin America and we went to visit them inNice a few months ago.
Their guesthouse is cosy,quiet and charming as they smiles are.
The breakfast they serve is excellent and copious!
Time has no place in Lou Souleou...

Room Tip: we had the "Zwazi room" which was warmly ornated.

The house is hidden away on a small street near the main flower market and below the castle. The best part was the hospitality and kindness extended to me, being invited in to have breakfast on the day I checked in, even before I settled in with this bag and all. On the day I checked out, I was able to leave my bag and return in the afternoon before leaving for the airport. The view from the terrace just off the breakfast/lounge room is directly across from the waterfront and affords views rivalling those of the most expensive waterfront hotels in Nice. The house is incredibly clean and welcoming, with votive candles lit in the hallways at night and lovely East Asian art calming the soul as soon as you enter. The double glazing made the shared dorm room very quiet from the outside noises, and the room was a decent size for 4 people to share, with space to lock away personal items. And I couldn't believe how comfortable the bed was! I was torn between sleeping in and getting up to go see the fish market. Staying here made my first visit to Nice very special indeed. Thanks so much!

Very nice place to stay in Nice! very good location with sea view and in the old town! Lea and Max are very friendly people and they made me feel like being part of their family! For me, definitely Lou Souleou was the perfect place to stay in Nice and I will come back and recommend to all my friends!

Simple and friendly bed and breakfast. Homely environment, including a couple of well-behaved cats. Close to beach, market, shops and restaurants. No problem missing air conditioning in November. Excellent location and price!

I traveled alone to Nice. This place is such a nice surprise...great view to the ocean from the balcony, convenient location, very clean and bathroom and shared bedrooms. The hosts are such lovely people. I will definitely go back and stay with them again.

A very homely environment and perfect location for exploring Nice and Monaco. Excellent hosts and enjoyable breakfasts. The only fault and I can't say a fault is that it could do with air con. We went in oct and it was really warm in the room so god knows what it would of been like in summer months . I would still go back again though a little gem .

Very comfortable. More of a "hostel" type of environment (versus a hotel) but that doesn't mean anything negative. We stayed in one of the first floor large bedrooms with the european kingsize bed. There was no air conditioning (other than open windows/doors) but that is isn't unusual in European houses. Bed was very, very comfortable and the private, fenced in terrace was a nice touch. It had no view but was a nice place to sit in the evenings at the small table and talk with the other people we were traveling with. Our hosts, Max and Leah, were very nice and patient with us. Breakfast consisted of breads, cheese, crepes, jam, milk, orange juice, several cereals to choose from, coffee and/or tea. A typical french style breakfast I am told. We stayed for four days and nights before catching our shuttle bus to Italy for the cruise we were going on. The location is prime for getting to the old Nice area as well as the beach and is a short walk from the metro/tram stop. Also, the location is just a short bus ride away from the Nice airport. Max provided very good directions for getting around in the local area as well as map of Nice. We would definitely stay at Lou Souleou should we travel to Nice again.

Room Tip: The two Ground floor bedrooms were the best I saw. There are two more at basement level which do not...
