We had to stay in Nice on a budget and this hotel seemed a good deal. Costed EUR 63 per night for 2 (or 3) people is on the cheap end when it comes to Nice. The hotel is incredibly basic in its amenities and design, but gives a rather good solution for those who cannot afford more.
- Staff is incredibly helpful and nice, and speak very good English.
- The bathroom is very clean and is perfect for the purpose. (they only give a small soap so bring your own toiletries).
- General cleanliness of the room is good.
- There is air conditioning in the room and FREE WIFI which works perfectly in both the room and the lobby.
- Hotel is 50 meters from the beach - just cross two main roads.
30 minutes walking to city centre, or you can take the bus (costs 1 EUR per single journey, or you can buy a daily pass for EUR 4 which is also valid for the airport service. Tickets can be bought on the bus. The bus is a great way of getting to the hotel from the airport, take number 98 from outside the terminal and get off at Lenval)
(!) If you get a room facing the main road (Californie), you will definitely need earplugs, for me they were essential even with the window closed (which does lock out most of the noise).
(!) For the attention of the hotel management, the only outrageous thing I would mention is the blanket they give for the 3rd (bunk) bed (only) which is the type that is used together with a clean white sheet but as a blanket - it never gets washed and it was just disgusting. Even in such a budget hotel they should get rid of these solutions.
I did not try the breakfast offered by the hotel, but there is a very nice café just next door - if you turn right when leaving the hotel.
