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.

Stayed here for 1 night before flying out in early morning. Great location to walk to restaurants and shops in old village. Clean room with good shower. 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 great, clean and modern rooms. It was located only a block away from the beach and a short walk to the train station which was great as it allowed for us to visit many of the smaller towns which were even better than Nice (highly recommend taking a train to the beach Eze).

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.). Service was... More

Clean hotel in great location, close to both the center and the beach. Easy acces from the airport and many option to commute. The room was so small that there was no space to open our luggages. Besides that the room was nice, tidy and clean.

We enjoyed our buffet breakfast in the courtyard. The hotel is very convenient to the Promenade, making life very enjoyable for visitors! At night, you are close to the nightlife too. It can be a little noisy if your room is near the street, so if you're looking for a quiet hotel, this place is not for you. Highly recommend... More

We stayed here for 2 nights and we had a wonderful time. Perfect location, room nr. 4 on the ground floor was good. Breakfast was ok and the staff was very helpful and friendly. The patio area (also breakfast area) is really lovely. We would definitely stay here again.
