Everything looked alright on arrival. Although it is a little out of the way and rather difficult to find, we had our own car and managed to reach in the late afternoon. We were a small group and had booked two rooms (a single and a double) for two nights.
After having spent an enjoyable first night at Nice Place, we were informed by staff that our rooms were doublebooked, at which point they asked us to move to a couple of small, dark and sweaty rooms on the edge of the property. No thanks, we promptly packed our bags and found a better place down the road. On checking out, the inept desk staff at Nice Place attempted to overcharge us by nearly 30%.
Overall, I think it is best to pass on this place and stay somewhere closer to the monuments. You would think that, given the difficulty in finding the hotel, Nice Place would make more of an effort to keep the customers who actually arrive there.
