“Wonderfully helpful to guests!”
Reviewed July 30, 2011

We stayed two nights at Hotel du Centre, Nice. We checked out on a Sat. morning, walked to the Hertz office (1 mile away) to pick up our rental car. The Opel only had 4000 km on it, but it smoked and died at our hotel. We do not travel with a cellphone or laptop, so the hotel called the Hertz office for us and explained our dilemma. When a truck hauled the car away, the hotel again called Hertz for us to get a cab. They let us park our luggage at the desk while we waited & got us a sandwich & drink (almost 4 hours total wait). They were extremely helpful, kind, courteous and knowledgable about where we were going (Aix-en-Provence,etc.). This is only a 2-star hotel but we had everything we wanted and needed, and we would definitely stay there again. It's also located very conveniently on the tramline, within an easy walk to shopping, restaurants & the beach.
Merci beaucoup!

My boyfriend and I were looking to stay in Nice for a few nights, and this hotel, that was a bit of a gamble to book, paid off.
Other guests have complained about the noise from room to room, but all that I noticed was neighbours flushing the toilet or taking a shower ... it really wasn't that bad!

The room we were given had a view over the church opposite, and was clean. we were given 3 beds in our room so there was plenty of places to put our stuff. The air conditioning was a relief.

The location was ideal, situated just off the main street and a reasonable walk down to the promenade. Outisde traffic noise wasn't a problem, bearing in mind its central location.

The only small problems were that we didn't get clean towels one of the days and no bath mat. the breakfast we thought was too pricey for what they offered. city tax payment was sprung on us as we were rushing to the airport. wifi also stopped working.

would stay here again should i find myself in Nice again.

Hotel standards aren't great on the French Riviera. This hotel was of a comparable standard to those that charge similar rates in the area. It's close to the train station, and 10-15 mins walk to old Nice and the sea. It's well served by bus and tram routes. The front desk staff were friendly and helpful. The room was of a reasonable size, and it and the ensuite bathroom were clean. The matress and bed however had seen better days - and were not very clean. The room overlooked a closed in square and the hum of fans from other buildings was noisy at night. The AC did not work. In general the hotel is a little shabby with no luxuries or extras. It is exactly the standard of accomodation that you get for this price in this location, but that isn't fantastic....

Hello Essiquibo,

Since June 29, 2017, a new team has taken over the Hôtel du Centre’s management.
Very motivated, with a great attention to quality and customer satisfaction (we also manage Ajoupa, 2nd on Tripadvisor with 1000 reviews).
Great changes are already visible (new beds, new pillows, new fridge, tea and coffee offered in the rooms, new breakfast served on the terrace ... etc) with a great attention to cleanliness (a painter has already passed ...) and important works are planned this fall to improve soundproofing and comfort.
Our promise of the hotel du Center: small rooms 2 * very clean, really well located in the center of Nice, with excellent service with some tips and a great attention to the satisfaction of our customers. Our goal is to be the right plan in the heart of Nice!

We are sorry that you have not fully enjoyed your stay, but we hope you will come back to discover our new face and our new team for a future stay! Follow us on FB, Instagram or via our official website to discover the new Hôtel du Centre ...

See you soon !

A VERY well-located, but small, charming little hotel. Gay-owned and operated and LGBTQ-friendly. Inside rooms have a "Paris view" of courtyards and rooftops. Cheap.

Stayed for one night. Staff were friendly. Room was fine..comfortable, clean, aircon.
Short walk from the square. Very friendly, helpful staff.

We were there for one night, to rest our heads and then head off down the coast. It was perfect for this purpose! Just what you would expect for the money.

My wife and I have stayed in this hotel before in '07 and had no problem with it then, so we stayed again in May '09. I find the price and location appealing, a few minutes walk from the railway station & handy for the tram line, as well as shopping streets. The staff are pleasant and the food quality in the restaurant surpassed my expectations. The lift is small but it works, the shower is small also, but clean and serviced daily with fresh towels as well as the bed sheets changed daily. the top 2 floors seem to be the only ones refurbed. I requested a room to the front on booking, which I got. the front rooms would be a little noisy if not for the double glazing. The room was a bit small and would not suit if one wanted to stay in all day say reading or watching t.v. But if you are just there for sleeping it is fine. And in terms of food and drink services It would appear to offer more than similar priced accommodations in the immediate area.
Overall a pleasant place to stay and the area itself seems much improved since the cul de sacs associated with the tramline construction are now gone.
