“Friendly Clean and Very Handy . . . We Will Go Again”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2011

As researched on Trip Advisor very close to the Promenade Des Anglais, close to the Old Town Centre and Rail Station. Good quality restaurants all around (avoiding the high priced sea front establishments unless you want to just people watch, £10 for 2 coca-colas) The hotel is a very friendly family run place, they speak good english but appreciate attempting French as all locals do. The rooms are small, maybe a little dated but clean and comfortable, with ensuite, they are double glazed with shutters and air conditioning, towels are changed daily, continental breakfast is served to you in your room at your requested time. There is not much view from the rooms as they are narrow roads and apartments line the adjoining streets.

The room was ok in terms of size. However, the walls are paper thin so we were constantly woken up by other guests and their blearing tv. Same applies to the floors, lots of noise from the room above.

Breakfast is rubbish. It's 6 euros for a small crossiant and a small bit of bread, with a small watery Orange juice and a crappy coffee. Save your money and go to a cafe. Really second rate.

The staff are nice. WiFi available downstairs and if your room is close enough to reception, in your room.

If you stay here bring ear plugs and don't order the breakfast.

The hotel is conveniently located 5 minutes from the promenade.
The staff was very friendly and let us use the hotel´s one and only parking lot , which was very convenient as finding a parking space in Nice is a nightmare.
Nevertheless, the room was very poor quality. The bathroom was old and dirty. The rooms definitely need a face lift.
Classic French breakfast is served to the room, which could be inconvenient for somebody.
Price for the room was low, but could find a better hotel in this price range.
Would not return to this hotel again.

My God,
I've been to a lot of hotels but this is the worst I've ever seen. The 'bathroom' was a nightmare: shower fixed with gaffa-tape, zink nearly coming down, the ceiling like being in a ruin....no,no,no...never again...it is cheap, but u can do better even for this amount of money. I felt like in a 50 year old, never renovated youth-hostel.

If looking for a hotel which is cheap for its location in Nice 5 mins from beach and what u want is a place to sleep and shower this 2 star hotel is ideal. We have just one fault u had to sit or kneel in bath to use shower. We found the owner/manager extremely helpful and he kept our bag for 3 days while out of Nice
The breakfast which is basic is a bonus and served in your room ,saves time in morning.
To walk to either Train or bus station allow 25/30 mins ,or use bus from stop near hotel.
Take bus 98 from airport 10 mins and get off at Gambetta \Dante bus stop 5 mins walk to hotel.We found the area quiet at night and would certainly stay there again

Due to Flight cancellations in the recent strikes we booked this hotel at the last minute. Reading some of the reviews after, we werent expecting much. Few minutes walk from the Airport shuttle bus stop.The staff were pleasant, speaking good English, rooms clean , sheets clean. The breakfast of croissants and juice delivered to the door at whatever time you request. Paperthin walls do seem to be the norm in most places, a chap in the nextdoor room sneezed and it woke me up!

Have stayed there twice now. Both times reception staff friendly and helpful, room basic but clean and comfortable, breakfast good. Situation brilliant for walking around the interesting bits of Nice.
I can only imagine the ones complaining are (a) judging it by the standards of an international hotel chain and (b) abusing the hotel regime. If that's what you want, go to the Hilton and pay their prices.
