A uniquely themed and decorated boutique hotel. Bright, welcoming and friendly. Unfortunately our room was below grade so no view or even daylight really so we were disappointed missing the charm and views from rooms as shown on website. Walls are very thin and neighbour noise disruptive. I also did not feel entirely safe walking to and from the hotel,... More

Lovely boutique hotel about a 15 min walk to the Promenade and 5 min walk to the train station. Our room was clean and love the old style rooms. Reception staff always smiling and happy to help. A big thank you to Elenora she was fantastic and helped us locate our lost baggage and made our stay extremely welcoming.

My wife and I stayed here a night passing through Nice and enjoyed our stay. Nice Gatsby-vibe hotel. Clean and quiet for a good nights rest. It's smaller or cosier some other hotels but nice. The breakfast was a bit limited but you're close to resto's and about 5-10 min walk from the promenade.

We stayed at the Villa Otero for one night, we were warmly welcomed and although our room wasn't ready as we arrived early we left our luggage which was safely delivered to our room later. The room was lovely and clean and the decor was stunning. Breakfast was in the main reception area and there was plenty on offer from... More

The staff at the reception is very friendly and let us know we can have coffee any time on the ground floor. The hotel and the room is beautifully decorated and I particularly like the theme colour they picked. However the room is rather small. And there are pieces of hair inside the bathroom towels. The breakfast doesn't offer large... More

We stayed at this lovely little hotel in Nice for 3 nights! On arrival we were greeted by friendly staff who offered us breakfast whilst we waited for our room as we were early for check in. We ended up having access to our room at 11am which was great! The room was small but a good size as we... More

Very much enjoyed our stay here. The décor of the hotel is lovely and the staff were extremely friendly. The room was small but clean and comfortable. One minor complaint: it wasn't made clear that we could use the facilities at their sister hotels, and we overheard one of the staff at reception explaining this to another guest on our... More

We stayed there for two nights during the Euro 2016 Championship. The whole city of Nice was crowded by football fans. Prices of the rooms were triple than usual even though I have booked the hotel two months in advance. Rooms were typical "franch", not to big and not well furnished: no slippers; poor bathroom accessories; small elevator; no restorant.... More
