stayed at this hotel end May/June 2014 and found that the hotel was very clean despite other reviews and comments, the hotel was very quiet and in a very good location right near the old town and close to the sea, close to bars and restaurants, We chose a comfort room ( not sure what it meant but the bed was comfortable..
The down side of this hotel is that it is on a second floor and doesn't have any lifts although the manager offered to carry a suit case. The room was a bit on the basic side and not very big, we had a rear facing room and was very quiet, the only noise we had was from one inconsiderate room neighbour who insisted in slamming the room door shut ( he really didn't need to).
There is a lacking of storage space, a wardrobe type free standing cupboard took about half a dozen shirts and a couple of pairs of trousers, there was space to lay flat some tee shirts. there was no dressing table and the mirror in the bathroom was not lit and old with most of the silver reflector missing.
There is a small flat screen TV showing an English channel BBC News,
The Breakfast option is a bit expensive for what you get, two pieces of baguette and two small croissants, jam and coffee, a 4 minute walk you can get the same for half the price or eggs and bacon plus the above.
The reception is not manned 24 hours a day, you are given door entry codes, simply enter the code and push the door open.
There is free WiFi and the reception will give you a password when you check in.
I would recommend this hotel, however this is Nice and things aren't cheap, so at first sight you may not think its value for money, ( we paid €130 for the room and haggled the breakfast free)
Getting to the hotel can be easy if you come from the airport, a number 98 bus drops you off just around the corner, the cost of the bus is €6 per person, a lot lot more if you get a taxi, any where else the cost of a bus ticket ( inc. trams) €1.5, this could take you to Cannes or Monaco. If you are going to stay a week it will be worth getting a weekly ticket ( which will cover airport terminals)
Eating out can be very expensive and you can pay around €4 for a spaghetti based meal, some restaurant offer a fixed price menu, its worth doing this unless you want to pay a lot !! Beer can be expensive, around €8 a bottle, some places have draft which is from €7 for 0.5ltr. Happy hours are good as the beer starts from around €4.5, The wine from this area is good but can be expensive, go for the lower cost ones especially the ice cold Rose.
