Reviewed June 24, 2013 via mobile

Our first visit to nice. Loved the resort hated the hotel ellington. Room was awful room 416.badly stained carpets marked walls made it look more 2* .tv was on a bracket which hung over bathroom door resulting in my husband banging his head several times. Double bed was 2 beds pushed together so uncomfy ridge along middle.safe was 3.50 euro per night and internet 15 euro per day. No food available at night unless it was room service and who would want to eat in that awful room .lots of noise and doors banging and exceptionally loud music on fri night till 12.30am .this was the worst 4* hotel we have ever been in .we booked it through hotwire and the last hotel we booked through them was fantastic so I can only assume the ellington puts guests from hotwire bookings in the worst room they have.

Great hotel! The staff was WONDERFUL and very helpful. Perfect location. Great bar and happy hour specials. The bathroom in our room was updated but room (carpet, etc.) felt a little dated/old - room and bathroom were a little on the small side. Overall though, very charming and great for our 5 day stay.

The Hotel Ellington has an excellent location between the train station and the old town. It takes 2 minutes to walk along to Avenue Jean Medecin and all its shops, and a further five minutes down to Place Massena and the edge of the old town at Cours Selaya.
The hotel room was spacious (executive room upgraded to a junior suite on arrival) and very well presented with safe, mini-bar, free wi-fi and tea/coffee-making facilities. Breakfast was good, with everything replenished whenever necessary - very decent selection although the range maybe wasn't quite as extensive as some other hotels at a similar price level.
The hotel's bar and lounge is very comfortable, and the patio/terrace space is really attractive - a welcome haven in a city centre. Happy Hour between 6 & 8pm takes around 35-40% off the four-star bar prices.
Staff at the reception desk were really outstanding - very friendly and extremely helpful - and they were well supported by the bar and breakfast room staff. They kindly booked all three of our old town restaurant choices in advance of our visit, and late on the Sunday evening they managed to get us on a small group tour to St. Paul, Tourrettes and Gourdon on the Monday afternoon - brilliant.
The hotel's staff certainly made the difference to our experience that would make us return here next time we're in Nice.

First of all, We would like to say thank you to hotel manager, she sorted out the problem very effectively. We were happy to stay this hotel, even though there were limited disable facilities. The room is fine,but need maintenance team to work hard to make sure everything is in good condition.
For example, the toilet and bedroom door are very difficult to close,you have to push hard. And bedroom handle lost one screw. It is about detail, maybe we are too fussy, but generally speaking, we had a good time here. Especially, all receptionists are very friendly, they make much more contribution to the hotel, and also five internships are as good as regular employee. Wherever they are from, (maybe German,China, Austria ......) they had provide excellent customer service. Good luck for all of them. Breakfast is also good. It is worth to try.

I had spent a long weekend last summer in Nice and I happened to stay in Ellington hotel. I did not know about the hotel before but I like the jazz singer Duke Ellington and I gave Ellington hotel a try.

Surprisingly, the hotel is named after the name of the singer I love and of the hotel was decorated in a jazzy a atmosphere. It's not all that I like about the hotel and put it in my favourite hotels list.

Moreover, Ellington has a friendly and helpful team to assist me when ever I need! Not to mention the fact that they offer a good breakfast with fresh fruit and big choices of homemade pastry! Yummy :)

The hotel's location is one of the point that makes me like the hotel a lot! The hotel is located in the city centre, easy access to any place in Nice but in a very calm area!

Thank Ellington for the amazing stay!

I stayed at this hotel for about four days. I could not ask for a better location. It was close enough to easily walk to the main road and beach, yet just far enough to not have the noise. The staff were exceptionally helpful in every way.

With guess. During our journey, we assisted to many live party with a great
Singer.
The bar is magnificiant and very cosy. The design is like in the 50's, we feel
