Run down hotel
Room dirty, toilet not cleaned.
Air conditioning unit emitting fetid smell.
Booked in and booked out on the same day after securing alternative accomodation.
Expensive for what is on offer.
The location is perfect for cafes and restaurants.
Close proximety to the beach.
We paid for a one night no show which is not ideal, but i considered it a result having moved to a much better hotel.

Room Tip: Avoid this hotel

The Felix is a very average hotel but in a brilliant location, could not be closer to the centre of Nice but the place looks a bit tired and its extremely expensive for what it is!

Can't beat the location though!!

We got a great room with a french balcony looking over the street full of cafes and restaurants.. I loved the room decor. The location is perfect - very short walk to the beach/promenade and to the Old city. Staff was friendly.. Internet was flaky but it worked most times.. The shower in the bathroom was a little broken, but we didnt bother to ask them to fix it coz it worked ok and we stayed there for only a couple of days. Excellent value for money.. the hotel was not very expensive compared to others in the similar location.

Every one at hotel Felix was very nice and their service was good. The main downfalls were the broken showerhead, the bathroom door wouldn't shut properly, the bar fridge was borderline unsanitary and broken (would have been better without it). Just lacked the finishing touches ie.. no batteries in the TV remote.. also the WiFi on the top 2 floors didn't work but once in range it was really fast and good.. overall if you want a clean bed and bathroom then this place will suit you fine!

we have stayed in the Felix Hotel on 2 different occasions.It is very centrally located,right in the shopping heart of promenade Anglais. whilst it is far from luxurious,it has that certain charm that so few other places have.The Gentleman in charge is so helpful and obliging.He is like your long lost brother,so helpful and friendly.. the rooms are clean and adequate for the price. To me the accommodation is excellent value.Three of us stayed there,my wife self,and Father in law.perfect spot for touring Monte Carlo,Cannes etc.I highly recommend the Felix,great value for money,and very friendly staff.and right in the heart of the action....

Stayed in the Felix for 7 nights 2nd to 9th October and this Hotel was very good value for money. It is well located for the seafront and the Rue Massena (so no reason to go hungry). The room I had was basic but did the job and the same applied to the bathroom. I also had breakfast here and found that to be the usual bread and jams, basic but okay. The really big plus here was the Staff, i go to Nice virtually every year and the Staff here are by far the friendliest I have come across in my years of coming here.
The crux of gthe matter to me when I am giving these reviews is "Would I stay Here Again" and the answer to that question in this instance is a resounding "Yes" and without hesitation.
However there is always a gripe and for me that was no lift.

Room Tip: If you have any mobility problems ask for a 1st Floor room as there is no lift.
