Stayed at this hotel for 6 nights whilst visiting the Côte d'Azur. Had a wonderful stay, was well greeted and subsequently looked after by the friendly staff. Room was good, nice new bathroom and we enjoyed the breakfast. Free wifi is handy for looking up where to go next, and the staff were always willing to help with travel etc. Bus 99 from airport was only about 20 mins and no more than a 10 min. Walk from the train station to the hotel.
Would thoroughly recommend it.

This was our third visit in three years. Philippe the owner is a top man and we were pleased to see him again. I always think there's a sense of progress at the Star; notable improvements this time were the Reception area which has been completely revamped and brightened up, and the breakfasts which have been substantially upgraded for only 1 euro extra (but breakfast is thrown in free if you book directly with the hotel).

We've eaten at the couscous restaurant a few doors down from the hotel twice before, at one-year intervals, and when we walked in there this time Sam who runs the place asked us if we would like our usual table! :-)

- Perfect location within the walking distance to all the main attractions (and sea!), close to railway station (bus to airport) and to bus to Monaco
- Very friendly staff, very helpful!
- Room is small but clean with all basic facilities. Actually the price can seem high for what you get, but this is Nice and Cote d'Azur, so you should consider that.
- Free WiFi

Based on reviews we were expecting friendly staff but these people were fantastic. Unfortunately we only got to stay one night, never enough in Nice. The hotel staff were friendly, helpful and informative without being intrusive or pushy. The was smallish but spotless and adequate and at that price just what we needed. The bathroom was a good size and had a great shower. Handy for the train station; buses to airport not far away, old city and beach/seafront nearby,

This is a small 2 star hotel just off the Main Street in central Nice. 10 minute walk from the old town/sea front. Our room was very comfortable and although basic, we had everything we needed. We paid €55 for the room per night- great value. The staff were warm and friendly and helpful. We would stay there again if we return to Nice.

Would recommend staying in this hotel. Though it only has 2 stars on the sign, we asked them why and it's because the standards in France require certain amenities for different star levels. Though the rooms are small- for a budget hotel, it was 4 star. If you're looking for a luxury hotel with a pool and someplace that you are looking to hangout in the hotel your whole trip to Nice, then this is not the place for you. But if you are looking for a centrally located (10 mins walk to train station, 10 mins walk to the old town), simple hotel that is SUPER clean and has great staff, book at the Star Hotel Nice. Staff were so helpful on making suggestions on where to go for dinner, how to get from place to place and things to do. Also they make really nice coffee!

Room Tip: Apparently corner rooms are bigger
