We have visited Nice on several occasions and were looking forward to our return this year. Unfortunately we booked this particular hotel through a BA deal, foolishly before reading the reviews on Trip advisor.
On the plus side the hotel is conveniently located next to the tram stop, bus station and train station. Also there is an underground car park on site. Sound proofing was very good so we were not disturbed by being so close to the transport links.
Decor and furnishings were in good order, the mattress was new and clean and bedding appeared fresh. The facilities for making snacks or drinks were good and average for this type of accommodation.
On the down side our room was VERY VERY small and only suited to single occupancy for stays of more than one night. Also as experienced by other contributors the bath room floor was filthy, a previous occupant had drawn faces in the dirt but bizarrely the cleaners just left them we assumed for the amusement of future guests. When we complained to reception we were informed that rooms were cleaned between occupancy or once a week if occupied for longer, the implication being that we were being fussy. We were not informed when booking that that the apartment was un-serviced so the same small towels for six days was a bit grim. Plus having to buy your own toilet rolls was a bit rich!!!
Security was a major concern, as reception was only open during mornings and afternoons there was a security code to enter the building at all other times. However, during our six day stay due to a malfunction that appeared to be long term the door never closed properly resulting in non-residents being able to roam the building unhindered if they so wished.
There was a total absence of efficient and effective management and the hotel seems to be on a downward spiral which is a pity as it could be a convenient place to stay for one or two nights.
By the way a nice touch was the wheelie bins (often over flowing) located near the front door. Says it all really.
