This little Hotel was absolutely marvellous....on the mountain, overlooking the river valley towards Nice and the ocean. Very nice place to wake up and see the sun come up over the valley below. Great Value for money. The location was a little bit far from Nice City Center, so your own car hire is a must.

We booked last minute and I didn't pay much attention to the location. It is on top of a mountain, it was not easy to reach at night but views from the road and from the hotel balcony later were amazing. The recepcionist was correct, we were given a room on 1st floor, it had a small kitchenette with 2... More

True we arrived late, after 11, but the single member of staff was sitting on the wall outside smoking. Our room was ready, but a double, not a twin as requested, and the staff member could not care less about the situation. When we asked for a drink all we got was a shrug, he really made us feel like... More

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.
