We had a very nice stay here. The staff was friendly and helpful. The room was small but comfortable. The shower was good. Opt for the express breakfast of coffee/ tea and a pastry. The full breakfast was three times the price and didn't offer much variety. The courtyard is nice. The beach is less than a five minute walk around the corner. Old town is about a ten minute walk where all of the shops and cafés are. The staff speaks English. They offered a lot of advice and day trips and restaurants. We did a half day tour of zee and Monaco which we really enjoyed. Everything is so close. We rented a chair at the blue beach for about 17 euro. They sell tickets at the hotel. It's too bad they don't offer half day beach passes. Definitely rent a chair at a private beach since the beaches here are all pebbles- big ones. The gare de nice ville train station was a little seedy so just be advised.
