“Great staff, small rooms”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 19, 2013

From the moment I walked in, the staff were really friendly and attentive. They're definitely the best thing about this hotel. The location is very close to the Acropolis for conferences, the centre for contemporary art, and the tram line, about 10-15 minutes walk from the sea. My room was small (just enough room to walk around the bed) with a desk and TV. The bed was particularly comfortable, but the bathroom was a bit smelly and had no shower curtain, meaning the floor got soaked every time I had a shower.
Pros: staff, close to Acropolis, comfy bed
Cons: not the nicest area of Nice if you won't be going to the Acropolis, small rooms, stinky bathroom.

I stayed here with 3 friends. Rooms were small but still big enough for 4 with a double bed and a pull out sofa. Only about a ten minute walk to the beach and the main restaraunts. Nice little cafe just around the corner. Was value for money and would definitely reccomend.

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.
