“Tired but excellent”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2014

Myself and two teen daughters stayed here in July 2013. We had a family room which was a room with double bed and another with two single beds. We loved the location - daughters loved being so close to shopping, beach, tram. We also loved the comfortable beds - a big plus as we had not had very good experiences in the other budget hotels we experienced in Italy (beds universally hard). The other great thing was the window double glazing which meant there was virtually no traffic noise. The staff are wonderful - and the lady at reception is particularly lovely.
We didn't bother with breakfast as there are many nice bakeries and cafes close by.
Rooms were clean but look shabby and worn. The linen was crisp and clean. Bathroom was really small - a big person would struggle to use the toilet. Airconditioning worked well. Lift is tiny and will only fit one person and one suitcase - we found it easier to use the stairs. Old style keys and easy to not lock properly. Overall we were very happy and are looking forward to staying there again

Room Tip: Ask about traffic noise

The initial appearance may be a bit off-putting but don't be discouraged. A warm and friendly owner or staff member awaits your arrival on the first floor. The rooms are a bit dated but clean and the bathrooms (at least ours) are renovated. The cold breakfast buffet is adequate.
I give it 4 stars because of the over-the-top friendliness of the owner/staff.

If you want to pay for luxury then there are plenty of options in Nice for you. If you want a clean hotel with a friendly staff in a good location Hotel de Verdun will be for you. The brown bed spreads are not very attractive but the sheets underneath were crisp and clean. Our bathroom was roomy and clean. The staff was very friendly and was eager to make our stay in Nice pleasant. Our room was on the street which is very busy but with the window shut you could hardly hear a thing. I hope to visit Nice again and I will book my stay at Hotel de Verdun.

Great location . The owner was very friendly and helpful . This city is like the Gold Coast on steroids . The hotel is a little old . Bathroom had been renovated , but was very small , probably only one person per use . Breakfast was ample . Photos on TA are pretty representative .

We stayed here one night and were happy with everything. The hotel looks tired from the outside, and yes, the reception is on the first floor so you carry your bags up one floor. But...
the hotel is in the best position, one block from the main shopping area/plaza/tram lines, and 10 mins from the waterfront. Our room was on the fourth floor (using the lift) and was spacious, with modern if small bathroom. We had a balcony overlooking the street, but closed the shutters and the glass doors, and only heard a very soft hum from downtown Nice.
The staff are welcoming in French and English, and we found both receptionists friendly and accommodating. The continental breakfast was good for €8. WiFi was a little unstable.
Bed was comfy, clean and fresh. Happy to stay here again.

We were met by a very rude and very arrogant manager/owner . I introduced myself and was told that I was a "typical American" I then stated that I was an Australian, he then just gave a shrug Of the shoulders.we were to stay four nights but because of his arrogant attitude decided to stay two.we asked to see the room and nearly had to catch the key as it was being tossed at us across the counter. My wife and I were going to walk out only to be told that we would have to pay two nights,so we decided to stay. The rooms are dirty ,small,smelly and very outdated. What it says about this so called hotel on the Internet is all wrong. Do yourself a favour and spend the extra dollars and stay somewhere else,we should have

We were a family of four sharing two adjoining rooms for just one night. Our 2 children were quite amused that they had a shower cabinet in the corner of their room. With our 4 cases it took a bit or rearranging before we were able to open these. Though bedroom was cramped the beds were fine and the AC very welcome.
Location was excellent given our limited time in Nice.
Reception service was fine and the breakfast was quite up to standard.

The price seemed reasonable given the location and it being a 2 star hotel though the rooms could do with some upgrading.

Room Tip: Rooms were very small and if staying more than one or two nights it might be advisable to ask for a...
