Hotel Select
Ranked #5 of 14 Hotels in Beaulieu-sur-Mer
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed October 2, 2012

Generally I find most 2 star hotels in France unacceptable however after reading other reviews we took the gamble to stay at Hotel Select.
Overview:
Our room facing the main street was very clean and had a comfortable double(north american) sized bed. We had a private bathroom with shower. For storage the room was equipped with a closet complete with lock box. There was a LCD tv, kettle with coffee and tea. Standard breakfast served daily with choice of drink, croissants, buns, yogurt and jam. Internet included
Conclusion:
I have no hesitation recommending Hotel Select. Based on the cost for similar accommodation in the area it is priced very well and the rooms are very clean. The owners run a tight ship which will put off some clients as you likely have read in other posts however that said you don't have to worry about anyone ransacking the hotel or looting rooms without them knowing about it which we found comfort in. I did find it ironic that lockboxes were not secured to the cabinets but then again it would be impossible for anyone taking one without them knowing about it. Wifi is included however you will not be able to receive a signal in any room other than the dining parlor or reception area. This certainly was annoying and in todays day and age it would serve them better to improve on this. The location is excellent only minutes to the train or bus stations. There is a wonderful market in front of the hotel daily and the town literally rolls up the carpet at night so it is very quiet. The only exception is on friday when the pub across the street fires up the band however by 10 pm they were out rolling up the carpet again.
If you are looking for complete anonymity/privacy then perhaps this isn't the place but then you will be spending well over $100 euro per night. At under $100 euro per night including breakfast Hotel Select is good value. If you want more you will have to spend more!

Great value for immaculately clean and convenient hotel. Easy to get to by 'bus or train. The "Courtyard" overlook rooms are very small and a bit dark, the rooms facing the street are a decent size and everywhere is spotlessly clean. Breakfast is very French and perfectly adequate and we found the owners friendly and easy to deal with.

Room Tip: Avoid the rooms overlooking the courtyard if you can. They are clean but dull

I had a good time at Hotel Select. The room was nice, clean, the price was fair, and the overall location great. I found the owners to be a bit strange though. They keep everything under tight control, they watch everybody, so it feels more like a bed & breakfast. My room was briefly made in 10 minutes while having breakfast, and finished later around noon. AC remotes were removed from rooms. All public spaces were locked by 10pm.

We stayed at Hotel Select for four nights on the weekend in June and had a great time.

It is well located, very close to the railway station which will get you to Nice, Cannes or Monaco in no time. The beach is also just short walk away.

The rooms a modern and spotless, well-equipped and beautiful. There is free Wi-Fi, however not in the whole building.

The most notable things are the owners though. Their service is just excellent. They are super friendly and I willing to go along way to help the guests. They even bought us a parking ticket when the cops were around controlling the cars!!

I'd be happy to return again anytime!

We enjoyed the central location and great price for the area. The rooms are small but it is worth it for the value. The couple who run the hotel are very friendly.

this hotel is run by a fantastic couple who put their heart and soul into this hotel, they are always there smiling and trying their very best to speak to you in a mixture of french and the little amount of english they know. the room was very clean and spacious, though the tv only has french language channels. confortable beds, 2 big singles pushed together, and a small but spotlessly clean bathroom. the breakfast was excellent, 1/2 litre of orange juice, a croissant, bread roll, yogurt jam, honey, tea/coffee/hot chocolate served with a smile (priced at 7 euros) we paid an inclusive price of 66 euros bed and breakfast great value, would recommend this hotel to anyone, and would certainly go back.

For the price paid, we received good value. Pluses: nice location next to the market square, cleanliness, nice owners, convenient to trains and moderate walk to the beach. Next to the train station, there's also a good supermarket SuperU. Minuses: mattresses could have been somewhat softer, there are no hand towels and the wi-fi signal is weak in the rooms, even though it is advertised. There's a safe but no minibar in the room.
The hotel serves breakfast but there are also other places for it around the marketplace. We found Beaulieu a good base for exploring Nice and surroundings.
