“View is complete selling point”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2011

I had booked two sea-view rooms for my parents and I and were put next to each other on the first floor. Although sea-view, we felt we were right on top of the road and missing out on the view a bit. I enquired at reception as to whether there were any rooms on a higher floor and were immediately moved to two on the 5th - no problems at all. The rooms are large and very basic but have a bit of a musty smell. When you open your balcony door however, you are met with the most beatiful view of Nice so I would say to only stay here if you want the sea-view - otherwise it's not that fantastic. Overall an average hotel with friendly staff (we did have a giggle when the reception misunderstood our request for an extra "towel" and when we chased it up again the next day, were told that we would have to wait until the technician came at 11am to build our new "table" - we underestand the accent/language difference, but just how accommodating were they willing to be!?!)

5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2011

This hotel has an amazing location right on the beachfront and the best rates of any hotel with that location. The staff is friendly and helpful. Our room was comfortable and clean, we read a lot of reviews griping about cleanliness but the only thing this room needed was a new shower curtain. Not a big deal. The breakfast buffet is plentiful but spendy, might want to just go down the street for an espresso and pasty. For the price and location, this was a great stay.

Beautiful location, with sea view and at the promenade des Anglais. However, the hotel looks very dated and is not very clean. Bar and breakfast area looked very much like a canteen. I also found the staff not very helpful and friendly, especially when ordering a drink at the terrace - the menu was thrown on the table without any greeting and it took ages before my order arrived. Reason for me to check-out after one night and move to another hotel.

This place has some very helpful,courteous staff. It has a fantastic location on the Prom des Anglais. But it is in real need of some tlc. The rooms are tired and dated looking, and for the price, frankly not worth it.

We finished a long bike ride and the company we travelled with booked us in. It was good and considering it's location the bar was reasonably priced. The only issue was that we had booked a couple of extra nights and had to change rooms. This took most of the day to sort out however we didn't get told this so spent most of the day in swimming gear as there was no changing faculties. Not a massive problem but could have easily been resolved.

Wow, for a hotel on the Promenade, it sure is a dung-heap. My room smelled of rotten cabbage and sewage, which is impressive considering I had a sea-view room with the ocean breeze coming in. No internet in rooms at all. Interiors badly need renovation. Not worth any price really. There are much better hotels nearby. 4/10

Great location for a hotel but that is about all it has going for it. The hotel is old and in bad need of renovating. Although our room was clean, the halls and room smelt of stale cigarette smoke and the walls were slightly discoloured, a yellowish tone. There are no tea or coffee facilities in the room. When we checked in to our room at 3pm the pillows were left stacked at the end of the bed without pillow cases. We had to ask reception twice for pillow cases and eventually after 9.30pm someone came to remove our pillows and give us 1 flat pillow and case each!
