We have stayed twice this month at Villa Otero and have had a super experience. It is located in a quiet street 5 minutes walk from the station. It is also a useful spot is you are heading, as we were, to Savonne for a cruise. The Costa bus service is close by.On our second stay my wife was suffering...

Very helpful staff - good location, only 5-mins walk from nice main station. Nice big bathroom with a good shower. TV has a few English channels. Tea and coffee making facilities but only a couple of milks so could do with more. Overall a good base, especially if you want somewhere close to main station.

Stayed for the single night as part of my travels and for this it was perfect, the room rate was about right and I had a good nights sleep and the room was quiet. Breakfast was basic but got me on my way. I am sure it was stated as a 4 star hotel and it is not. Typical French...

This hotel is 5 min walking distance from Gare Nice-Ville. 20 min walking distance to the beach. I like this location a lot. The decoration of this hotel is lovely.

The hotel is really charming. The rooms have a very good size and are very well decorated in a french retro style. The lobby looks like a vintage cafeteria and you are treated with free nespresso coffee during the whole day. You also have some snacks for free during the afternoon, also in the lobby. The staff is friendly and...

I stayed here for two nights and I couldn't recommend Villa Otero enough! Stunning decor, very lovely staff, our room was comfortable yet very elegant. I loved all the details, from the Art Deco paintings and mirrors - it really made me feel like I was staying in an opulent Nice mansion rather than a hotel, which I loved. We...

We stopped at Villa Otero for a 3 day break to Nice at the end of October. The hotel is well located to arrive from the main train station or from the airport shuttle bus service, with a quick 5 minute walk from either drop off points. The walk however means you have to walk past a couple of road...

The hotel is in a good location close enough to everything you need to spend a couple a days in the south of France. Short walking distance to the beach front or from the station for day trips to other close by cities. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Breakfast is good and worth including in the stay. We...

My girlfriend and myself enjoyed a weekend trip in Nice, and Villa Otera was definitely a part of this pleasant trip. First of all, the hotel is literally 4/5mins walking distance from the main train station. The bus from the airport drops you in front of the station, which is 6 euros one way per person. We arrived 9pm in...

The Hotel Otero is possibly one of the friendliest hotels I have ever stayed in. A chic and cosy interior greets you, and muti-lingual 24 hr staff welcome you. The lobby rather than your room contains a wide selection of hot drinks and snacks, the buffet breakfast is varied and fresh. All the staff are very helpful..in particular Alain who...
