We've stayed in a few budget and mid priced hotels in Nice over the years. We've stayed at the Campanile Acropolis quite a few times now as a first choice for value. Yes, rooms are very small - but so are very many hotel rooms in Nice, and it is a budget priced hotel. Last year we stayed a few days in a well known and much more expensive hotel just off the Promenade des Anglais and weren't that impressed when comparing value with the Campanile. We have had rooms in the Campanile Acropolis on a variety of floors and facing front and back. This time we stayed a full week and hoped to be allocated room 803 because we knew it had a terrace. The view from the terrace is excellent - looking down onto the garden of the Modern Art Museum, across the rooftops, towards the castle hill and panarama right round across Nice and to the Alpes Maritimes. As always, the room and bathroom were immaculate. Even though the lift is close to all rooms, the lift noise didn't bother us. Double glazing works well but in hotter summer months when it's good to have windows open perhaps a room at the back would be better. My only criticism is that I didn't find the bed or pillows comfortable - the bed was large but too firm for me and the pillows just like bits of sponge - I don't remember this on earlier stays but maybe they've been changed with the refurbishment. Also, what a shame they no longer provide the complimentary Fragonard toiletry samples or the butter biscuits - that was a welcome touch of goodwill. We like the hotel because it's in a very good location - near the old town; at the start of a lovely walk through the Place du Paillon; round the corner from tram stops, bus stops, airport bus stops; very near the old town; restaurants,supermarket and cafes nearby. We've always found the staff to be very professional, friendly and helpful.
