Great location, just a short walk to the water front and restaurants, maybe 10 mins. The staff were so helpfull and couldn't do enough to help. The room was clean and spacious. Didn't have breakfast included but there were enough cafes around to provide coffee and cake

Location: Within the center of Nice. Just beside Acropolis Tram Station. Its 12 minutes away from Terminal 1.

Facilities: The room smells old. Cleaning was not consistent. Serving breakfast was not consistent as well. You can hear banging of the doors especially when the hotel gets full. The beautiful thing about this hotel is about their excellent guest services. The lady in-charge who speaks good english attends immediately to all your concerns. She treats her guests as VIPs.

Price: It was one of the most competitive rates online that has three stars.

With its excellent guest services, you will not regret your stay in this hotel.

Very good location. Near the tram station. Staff were very friendly, made us feel home. Great value for money. Spent most of my time outside the hotel so the small size of the room didn't matter to me. Didn't try their breakfast. 5 minutes walking distance from the old nice and the flower market.

PRO: NICE and helpful staff.

CONS: Rooms are very small.
The elevator is so small its actually amusing.
The HVAC system is archaic. The entire hotel is either switched to "heat" or "cool". If your room is hot and the hotel is on "heat", you cannot turn on a cooling system to cool your room. Its bizarre. Ive never been in a hotel that had such a weird system.
Parking is complicated and not on site but, this is Europe so, maybe that is just something to deal with.
TV is about as amusing as the elevator! It looks more like a computer monitor and is no more that 16" or so.
No shower curtain but, again, maybe this is just a Euro thing. But, its not possible to shower without soaking the entire bathroom floor since the shower is small.
I had a "room with a view" but the view was basically the bowels of the backside of a bunch of buildings. So, I have a lovely view of wash hanging out to dry and a bunch of satellite dishes!

Room Tip: Dont pay any extra for the balcony. Its a waste of money.

A lovely small hotel in a fantastic location.Rooms are small and basic but very clean and the owner and staff are very friendly and helpful.Situated close to both the tram stop and the railway station the hotel is in a perfect place to discover Nice and the rest of the Cote D,Azur.There is a small amount of work going on in the lobby areas at the moment to modernise these but this does not detract from having a pleasant stay.Overall a good budget choice for this area.

Room Tip: There is a small amount of road noise from rooms at front of hotel.

Nothing safety as we stole my money (a sum very high) of the room and no one took over. In the next room also were stolen and the hotel did not respond at all. Inclusive charged me 2 nights hotel!
There are no security cameras, no magnetic keys and walked no safety box. The only thing that the owner said that could not have happened at your hotel. I have the police report to whoever wants it.
