Very tired hotel literally in the middle of nowhere ten minutes form Vence.We of course knew there would be some drawbacks as the price was very cheap.We didnt hire a car which looking back was the fundamental flaw to the 4 day break.Once there ,the receptionist informed us that there was 'nothing around' in reference to bars,restaurants and getting a...

This was hotel stop # 3 on our EF Tour. Unfortunately, we only had time to stay one night and we arrived late in the evening. The hotel itself is a bit dated but still has some modern amenities, however, the views you get from being here are fabulous. It is located on top of a mountain, with no other... More

The good points: close to the airport, easy to reach (only by car!), no noise, convenient if you are using the airport nearby, clean just enough, free parking area, people is welcoming. The bad points: quality of the room, lift is off duty most of the time, nothing around if you want to go out for a drink, not exactly... More

Didn't pay very much to stay here. The view alone was worth every penny. Our room could have benefitted from a mini spruce up just to keep it up to scratch. Staff were lovely. Couldn't do enough for us. Walls are paper thin which can get a bit noisy if you get an amorous couple next door! Good location. 15... More

The receptionist Florian was really unhelpful, inept and rude. He really should not be doing this job, he will chase away the customers with his horrible work ethics (or complete lack of it). To explain: My parents had another room (001) which for some reason during our stay had faulty air conditioning. Since I stayed in room 214, I had... More

25 minutes from Nice downtown, this hotel is located in the mountain around. Rooms are small but clean. They are also noisy... You can hear your neighbors... Staff is nice and it is not expensive. View from balcony is very nice. Conclusion: Just correct.

I visited this hotel for two nights with a large group of students. This is a sweet hotel, in need of some updating but nothing serious. The rooms were nice (four of our boys had a mini-suite, with one bedroom, a pull-out couch, a trundle bed and a kitchenette) which they found very impressive :) The wifi worked well all... More

This this a wonderful little hotel with quirky rooms and million dollar views of the French countryside and French Alps. Fantastic service and great breakfast. The rooms have small stove, microwave and refrigerator. The location high in the mountains was magical..

We stayed in three rooms(103, 205, 111). First room we had to move because of cleanliness issues. Second room was better but not as described in other reviews. Wall paper coming off the wall, bathroom with painted over tiles (blistering paint and mold spots) and in all three rooms the tub/shower had just one glass partition so splashing can occur... More
