Having spent four nights on a short vacation trip we were impressed by the magnificent view from the hotel and by the hospitality of its owners, Valerie and Gino. The hotel is located high over the rooftops of Nice at the beginning of the famous Haute Corniche mountain road to Monaco (but there is not much traffic on that road). The four bed room was nicely furnished and had a nice and clean bathroom, which was probaby refurbished not too long ago, as it looked quite new. The room hat a terrace with a table and chairs, the entrance was over stairs on the outside thru the garden of the hotel, which was in our opinion very romantic.
The view from the small restaurant/ breakfast room must be one of the most breathtaking of all hotels in Nice. The continental breakfast (not included in the room price) was very nice and was good value for the money. We didn't had dinner at the hotel, but they offer a three-course dinner in the evening (you have to order this by noon).
At the time of out visit to Nice in April there was unusually cold weather. The room had central heating which was switched on (not every hotel in France will do this), so the room was cosy. The room has no A/C but as it is located on the steep slope of a hill I doubt that you need it in summer, as there should always be enough wind from the sea.
We found our stay very pleasant but keep in mind that it is not a Negresco-style luxury hotel. If you want a normal tourist-class hotel with a personal style than it is perfect. The price of the room was totally appropriate. We parked our car on the street (which is recommended by the hotel owners), which was no problem at all. The neighborhood is decent, we were not afraid someone would break into our car. To go into the city, there is a public transport bus (every 20 minutes), but we found it better to use the car, as there are public parking everywhere in the city. You shouldn't be afraid of french driving, though. I think with a 15 minutes walk you should be able to reach a tram line.
We can really recommend the hotel and will use it again at our next stay in Nice.
