“Very good located”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2012

The hotel is very good located ,just a few streets above the beach.There are a lot of cafes and restaurants near the hotel.The only think is they dont have a parking space.If you travel by car you need to pay a lot for parking machines and private parking areas.But it is also the best way to travel the nerarby places like Cannes,Antibes.Monaco.Especially go to St.Paul de Vence which is a little village on the mountain road .it takes only 20 minutes.The room we stayed was very small and we tried to change the room but the hotel was full.If. You pay a little bit extra ypu can stay in the second floor which has more bigger rooms.The staff was nice but English was poor.The wifi connection is free and it has perfect coverage in the rooms.

My wife and I stayed 4 nights at this centrally located hotel, in a quiet area, close to the sea and good restaurants. The staff were always helpful, out room was clean and comfortable, the breakfast was very good. We would definitely stay there again.

My daughter and I stayed at Hotel Les Cigales in Nice from 24 to 27 September. The Hotel was one of those recommended in the 'Rick Steves Provence & the French Riviera' travel Guide book and, following the advice in the Rick Steves book, by booking direct with the hotel and typing the code RICK, we received a 7% discount.
We loved the hotel and the staff. Les Cigales is located in a very pleasant part of Nice on a quiet street, just a few blocks from Promenade des Anglais and the beach front. It is also only a short walk to the train station or the city centre.
The hotel was spotlessly clean and well maintained. Our room was comfortable and adequately appointed without being opulent. Although overlooking the street (we were on the top floor), we slept well without being disturbed by any outside traffic noise. The airconditioner worked well and silently.
I notice that some other reviewers have mentioned that their rooms were a bit small.There is the option to pay a little extra for a slightly bigger room.We did this and our room was pleasantly spacious. Only the shower remained a bit small, but was no real problem.
All the staff that we encountered were friendly and welcoming. Veronique in particular was very helpful, and gave us maps and suggestions of sights to see, where to eat and how to get around Nice.
The hotel breakfasts were excellent and were in a cosy, peaceful little dining room.
We will definitely stay at Les Cigales again if we visit Nice in the future and highly recommend this hotel to fellow travellers.

A safe, central location. The staf has good English skills - service-minded and helpful. The rooms are very small, though. Our room faced the street and was on street level. But it is a quiet street, so no problem. The mattresses are hard, though, and the pillows too.

The bathroom was fine, but we had trouble with the shower. The temperature was either ice cold or scalding. We notified the staf when we left. Hopefully it has been taken care of.

This is a very small hotel, and staying there you do feel a bit cramped. The breakfast room is in the basement - there's one window looking straight into a wall and some pipes. The breakfast is good.

The hotel has a roof terrace with a few chairs.

The return to the airport was very convenient. We made a small downpayment for a shuttle bus.

All in all we were happy with the hotel. Mostly due to the location, friendly service and cleanliness.

When we arrived in Nice by train, we were able to walk with our suitcases to this hotel. It is so close to great shopping and eating areas. The staff were extremely helpful and the room was very clean, albeit small...something to expect when in Europe. The morning breakfast was typical European fair...croissants, meats, cheeses, coffee, juice, fruit. Because we were so close to the train station we were able to travel to Monaco. Great hotel in a great location.

Once again, the Hotel les Cigales took very good care of us. This time we brought family members! This was our fourth stay at this hotel and the reason is simple: The Staff! Contacting them via email and making travel plans was very easy. On arrival, we were treated like old friends. Location is outstanding both to the beach and restaurants. Everything is in walking distance, as is public transportation. Our room was on the street side and evening traffic can be loud but we look at it as “its our neighborhood” so it was not a big issue to us. Thanks again Hotel les Cigales!

Room Tip: Quiet on the back side.

First of all - an outstanding, extremely friendly staff. They were nice, helpful, attentive, smiling (am I talking about France? :)))
Price. We have paid around 130 Euro. This is VERY cheap for Nice.
Location. Outstanding.
Then goes a bad part. Even if you pay 135 Euro you expect at least the basics, especially, if the TripAdvisor recommends you....
A shower needs a renovation today. Period. Mold, dirt, which you cannot clean with just households chemicals, are there. And this is not about cleaning services. It is about a quality of construction. And IT IS time to renovate. So, even if you pay 130 Euro you expect the basic qualities. You can argue about size of that show, which is EXTREMELY small. But, again, you, probably, need to pay more for a bigger room.
Another bad thing - there are no walls...... Yes, the are walls you can touch, you can see. But they don't exist for the sound. They are completely transparent to the sound. You can hear EVERYTHING what happens next door.
Would I stay there again or recommend to my friends? No.
