The room was quite small but clean and nice. Staff was friendly and helpful. The location of the hotel was the best, just a minute walk and you are on the Promande des Anglais. Brekfast was not included in the room price and was quite expensive. 7 euro for a hot drink, one piece of bred and jam, buffet was... More

This hotel has a great location for experiencing Nice. It's one block away from the Promenade and a block away from fabulous restaurants (it's the restaurants where the locals go). The reception staff are very helpful and always on hand to help.

Ideally located, smallest lift ever, friendly and helpful staff, clean well appointed rooms. I would definitely stay there again if travelling solo or with a friend. This unassuming hotel is walking distance to the beach ( rock pile) the casino, centre of town and some terrific cafes and restaurants.

This small friendly hotel is one of the best kept secrets in Nice! Olga and the team keep this small 40 rooms clean, functional at silly prices! 5 min walk from beach. Breakfast is available. Nothing is too much trouble. Shhhhhhh do not let too many people know! We book the following year when we leave. Just perfect!

A small hotel, located 150m from the Promenade des Anglais, and a few minutes walk from both the old town and the pedestrian area, where there is a great selection of shops and restaurants/bars. We were there for 4 nights. The hotel is clean and comfortable, and the staff are friendly and helpful. Breakfast is varied, and can be taken... More

Small rooms but great AC. One block to beach and walking distance to many restaurants, shops & more. Breakfast wasn't included but there were lots of great bakeries on our street to enjoy. Shuttle bus to/from airport stops on the promenade 1 block from the hotel.

Like most European hotels, the room was small and the ac was not powerful. 2 bath and 2 hand towels provided along with soap and shampoo. We did not stay for breakfast. Most... More

This hotel was exactly what I wanted. Just a block from the beach and near the old town, I enjoyed the spotless cleanliness and simplicity of design in the rooms (after so much sensory stimulation in Nice the clean lines and comfort of my room was welcome, as was the air conditioning, coffee maker, and flat screen tv.).
