It's a little and charmy center-located hotel with an authentic and picturesque coloring. The bedroom is pretty spacious and comfortable - there is a fridge and a TV set. Just 20 minutes on foot from the main station and 15 from the English Embankment. The doors close at 11 pm therefore it's necessary to call on the intercom. If you wish to experience the spirit of the beginning of 20th century, that is the right place to go.

I like my short 1 week stay in this hotel. We got room # 3 it was rather big i compare with hotels in Paris i stayed before. Bathroom is small but its ok. The best thing is location just 5 min walk from Promenade des Anglais and Negresco Hotel. Supermarket, french bakery, flower shop and market with village vine, fresh fruits and cheese next door. I was surprised by room service they change sheets and towels every day! Can you imagine it? Old man at the reception provided us with knife and corkscrew to open 2Euro french vine and cut fresh country side cheese. Very friendly man. WIFI is free but a bit slow sometimes. Could faced with noisy travellers. Wish you the best time in Nice! Have fun!

Jit is just near the beach and not too far from Old Town, about ten minutes walk and near to the restuarants etc. Not much streetnoice, It was some overhearing between the rooms, but not that much so it bothered us. There was a nice little man in the reception.

From the outside, the hotel's neighboring buildings looked a little shabby, and I was hesitant to stay here even though I had a reservation, but once inside I was pleasantly surprised how clean, and nice the hotel and room was. My boyfriend and I didn't spend too much time in the room, mainly to shower and sleep. The bathroom was very tiny, the bed was big, the hotel was quiet, and the location was a short walk- just a few streets from the shore. The location was also very close to Monaco, which we went to for dinner. There is a fridge in the room, so my boyfriend was able to walk down the street and buy some wine and snacks to leave in there. Unfortunately, the hotel did not have parking available, so you either have to park on the street which is a gamble in itself because the signs are very confusing as to the days / hours allowed to park, or you can park in a structure, which can become expensive.

Small, hard to find hotel conveniently located near the beach in Nice. My girlfriend and I only stayed for a night, but the accommodations were pretty good. There was a mini-fridge!!! Not something you would expect lol, but it was great to keep cold water, drinks, olives, etc. Location is great as it is about a 20 minute beautiful and scenic drive to Monaco (highly recommended).

The only negative (and this is could be a deal breaker), there is NO parking and the guy at the front desk is not very helpful. We had a rental car and had to park about 4 blocks away from the hotel.

Although the location was great, I probably wouldn't stay here again.

I stayed here with my mom for 3 nights. Hotel is small, 2 floors. We had double room, bed was good size and comfortable, so as room. Air conditioner worked perfect. There are small refrigerator, chairs and couple tables, dresser in a room, also a small tv. Bathroom may seem a little small, but was enough for us, toilet and shower look good, all bathroom is clean. They change a towels every day, add shower gel and soap. Also we got a beach towels, but u have to ask owner for it. Owners are nice and helpful. We didn't buy a breakfast, however, they serve it every morning for 7 euro per person a day. I don't think u need it because right across the street there is a big supermarket and a bakery with everything u want. U can ask the owner for a kettle for your room to make a hot tea or coffe. Hotel is 5 min away from the beach and streets with little shops and restaurants. I would recommend this hotel to my friends.
