The room and bathroom are old and outdated but seem to be clean. You need to pay for wifi and wifi is OK. It's only a short walk to the beach, town centre and sightseeing places. Breakfast is so basic that there're hardly any choices other than croissant and yoghurt.

Location of hotel is great - short walk to the promenade and at the end of the street are some good shops. The staff at the hotel don't have the best customer service and seemed annoyed most of the time. The breakfast was quite basic. Would recommend staying here if purely looking for a property in good location!

The rooms are really strangely decorated, but it seemed pretty clean. The breakfast is incredibly meagre, so don't expect anything great. The beds were comfortable and it was nice to have the French doors on the balcony. Location was also great, close to the beach about a 7 minute walk.

I really enjoyed my stay here. The staff were friendly, rooms aborable and the location was fantastic. It's an old hotel and won't be to everybody's liking but I really enjoyed it. The beds were comfy and the room was clean. You don't go in holiday to spend the whole time in the hotel, so if you want a great... More

Just a few streets back a five minute walk you will find Hotel Busby. It's located on a busy street so if you want a peaceful sleep ask for a room not on the street side. The rooms are small but manageable. My breakfast was included but it was very very average. Bread and cereals only. The staff are friendly... More

Easily the worst hotel I've ever stayed in. 100% wouldn't recommend it to anyone. 1950s style and appliance quality at best. Staff are rude, rooms are small, wifi cost €5, bed is hard and old, could not wait to leave! Only thing going for it is the location

Hotel busby was located in a great area of Nice that is close to the centre of town and the beach. The hotel is rundown and dirty and needs a lot of TLC, the wifi was also non-existent after paying €5 for the service. When approaching the reception about this there was no apology or offer of a refund. If... More

The hotel was aged, it had a stately feel, perhaps if I had have visited 50 years ago this would have felt grand. The service from the hotel reception felt forced; the restaurant staff seemed like everything was an effort. The breakfast offering was bread and condiments, yogurt and coffee essentially. The location was central, given how small Nice is,... More
