This hotel was the first of 3 we visited on our trip to France and Spain (West End in Nice, Chateau Eza in Eze, then Hotel de las Letras in Madrid).
Hotel West End was our least favorite, in spite of it being the first stop on our trip and when we were most excited. The hotel is fine. it's not bad, but I wouldn't book here again. Before we left, I upgraded to ensure we had a sea view, but the balcony was so small it would only fit one person. Not what I had in mind, not what I paid extra for. The room was small, which is fine, but upon entering the room we saw a coffee table propped on its side, missing the 4th leg. I will say that at least the doors to the balcony are double glassed, and block the noise from the Promenade Des Anglais.
The bathroom - the shower had absolutely no curtain. Every time we showered it looked like the lower deck of the Titanic in the bathroom. Not pleasant, but not a deal breaker.
The day passes to Blue Beach were available, and although 18 Euros, at least this was seamless and very enjoyable. The hotel didn't have any charisma. It wasn't that anything was "wrong" per se, it just felt kind of flat.
I have yet to see if we have been double charged - I read a review before we left for our vacation which stated that the hotel charged the guest twice. I hope that isn't our case as well.
Superior Sea View was what we paid for. For the cost, I didn't feel it was worth it. Perhaps on higher floors there are rooms that feel more luxurious. (we were on the 4th floor) It's not bad, not great, it was average. But we were hoping for above average, and for the price, I was disappointed with what we received.
