“Works for me!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 9, 2010

I should clarify, my husband was on business and I was tagging along. Therefore leisure.

I loved the location. Really close to the Vieux Nice (aka a 15 min walk) and not just in the middle of hotel after hotel after hotel after hotel (aka, along the promenade). There is a Carre Four (local version of a discount store of sorts. Groceries and electronics and clothes etc) right around the corner. Great cheap wines and other provisions. The hotel seems great for the business type with lots of conference rooms. Free Wifi. The restaurant is pricey. Why are you traveling if you just eat at the hotel? THere are LOTS of great places all around. Also, there is a laundry right across from the Carre Four. Did I mention it is a great location?

If I was looking for a romantic french getaway, this really isnt the place for it. If I was looking for a good price with a great location and clean rooms with friendly staff, you hit the jackpot. If I was a business looking for a conference place where the amenities are right and tagging along spouses will be happy... yep. You got it.

Location: Not close to anything fun, the trams in Nice stop running at 1 a.m. but just to get from the near the beach promenade to the trams is a bit of a walk , especially if its cold at night. The hotel is located right next to an exhibition centre, i guess for the business travelers. If i was visiting Nice as a tourist, i would rather stay near the waterfront because that's where most of the nightlife and tourism is in Nice.

Service: Ok, nothing special.. if we needed something sent to the room after 11 p.m., the front desk said we had to come and pick it up ourselves because there was no one else to replace him/her !!

Price: We had to buy our own amenities if we wanted, EUR 5 for a case of toiletries, which are normally provded free of cost by most hotels i have been staying at in the past. .. The price of the room was ok but apart from that, it wasn't price friendly.

Room: If you will stay here and book a room with two beds, make sure they are actually two beds. All we got was one bed and a sofa with folding out bed which was pretty uncomforable to sleep on at night.

All in all, i think there are better Novotel's around and if you're going as a tourist, especially with family, its a lot easier to stay near the major tourist spots or bus connections.

We had already stayed at the Novotel Nice Centre 2 years back on a previous vacation and liked it based on the breakfast and the room we had back then. We thus booked it again this time for a short stop over of 3 nights added onto another trip before. However, our experience was VERY different from last time. Despite having to pay 10 EUR per night more than last time (last time was in high-season August vs now in early October which is definitely low season already for Nice judging form the amount of people in the city) we got a worse room and worse breakfast. There was only the small breakfast service included this time which was really not good and the room on the 6th floor was of a lesser standard than the ones they show on the pictures - kind of like the left over rooms it seems...although I dont think the hotel was fully booked this time around :(

However, staff was friendly and the place is clean - just try to stay on like 4th floor and get a room "sur cours" because when looking onto the street this is very busy and emergency vehicles seem to pass by every 30 minutes even during the night waking you occasionally depening on the depth of your sleep.

Just another city centre characterless hotel, location is fine but the carpets and decor are decidedly dubious and in need of an update, very noisy outside and the restaurant menu is limited to say the least

My boyfriend and I stayed in this Hotel for 4 nights in Aug 2010.

The reception staff are friendly and the hotel itself is lovely.
We booked a superior room which was really spacious. The bed was huge, we had loads of room for our luggage and excellent storage space for our clothes (just like at home).

We hired a car and thought there was free parking at this hotel there isn;t. You have to pay 15euros per night to park in the carpark across the road, which is really secure (you are given a code to get in to the Novotel section which the general public dont have access to).

The location is good, a few people have mentioned it is far from the centre, but we could walk to the beach in 20 minutes. just around the corner is a tram that takes you to the centre vis the beach for only 1euro per person.

The street the tram is on, walk down there, there are loads of wee shops and theres a bar I recommend called Cubana Cafe, we could sit outside at night and have cocktails for 4.80euros including free nibbles. The staff were really friendly and it was never busy. There is also an excellent ice cream shop down a bit that sells small pre-made tubs of icecreams with delicious toppings for 3euros. Youll then get to the Square where there are restaurants, straight infront of you is the famous Turin Cafe where we had a selection of seafood, amazing!!! And we brought extra money that night because we thought it would have been expensive, but no more than we paid elsewhere.

I've attached some pics.
Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.

We were delighted with this hotel, just great value, very children friendly, child library, games in lobby, great pool on roof. Comfortable room with good views of surrounding hills of Nice. Reasonable priced, great breakfast. Tram stop outside 1 euro will bring most sights in Nice. couple of stops to old town and promenade/Seafront. will return!
