Stayed there twice, once with business (was pleased then), second time with my family (not so much). Ok below are my points:
Rooms - good, clean, pillows are uncomfortable and the beds could have been made better.
Bathrooms - perfect
Breakfast - good, but expensive for what it is, 23 euros, when in Negresco you can have for 30.
Roof top pool - very good, not too much chlorine, nice views, nasty pigeons and expensive snacks (club sandwich 18 euros, one the of the cheapest options, juice by the pool 6 euros, rip off). At night they sometimes turn that area into a night club and the music is loud even on the 2nd floor - not too good if you are trying to get some sleep at midnight.
Finally, service. We walked in without prior reservation and were told by the chap called Arnaud that the price for three nights would be 1200 euros. Indecisive, we asked if he could offer a better price, but he seemed to be annoyed with that, so we agreed to check in, and then he said that the house is full! Immediately, we went online to booking.com and booked the room with sea view for 855 euros and moved in. The chap remained rude for the rest of our stay but we noticed that he was rude with everyone. Some of the staff was helpful and friendly.
Location - 20 mins walk to the centre, or 15 euros by taxi, 1.5 euros by bus or free shuttle in the morning or late afternoon.
Would I stay there again - if desperate, otherwise would find something more reasonably priced and centrally located.
