“A must go if you want to stay by the airport”
Reviewed January 24, 2012

Not far from the airport, this hotel is very trendy, clean, and at the level of any expectencies. The staff is very friendly and welcoming. Not far from the city, you have access to the buses or taxis very quickly. The room itself had a view on the beach. However it was a little bit too small from what we expected. The staff was very friendly and did not charge us for staying one hour longer than we have been supposed to.

Room Tip: Double room are probably 24 sqm. We liked the corner for the view on the beach

Overall pleasant stay. We stayed one night because of an early flight the next morning and it worked out perfectly. Located just across from the airport and a 5 minute taxi to center of town. Staff was very friendly.

This hotel is walking distance to the Nice Cote de Azur airport and is clean but basic. Does have a restaurant, with ok service nothing special. Free wifi is a plus. Adjacent to Parc Phoenix a nice 2 euro fee park/zoo/botanic garden area. The buses 9 and 10 are cloe and take you into the old city which is great. Ok value, about a 1.5 km walk to the beach made of stones but lovely nonetheless.

The hotel is clean and the lobby is professional looking. The menu in the restaurant is pretty limited, but an excellent buffet dinner is available in the hotel next (on the left) to it. The maid service is erratic: one day did not even pick up the trash or placed any new coffee. The free wi-fi is very basic and you need new passwords each day. Also you cannot connect two devices (iPhone & iPad for example) at the same time.

The hotel is very close to the airport, which can be considered good or bad depending on your reason for stay. The sight seeing tour bus as well as buses to other cities and the main train station are available from Terminal One. The promenade is right across the Hotel. However being far away from the main town, there is not much to do in the evenings. One definitely bad thing about the hotel is that there is always a group of prostitutes hanging around in the next block!!

Been a good few years since i last visited a Novotel and things have certainly not improved. The client recomended this hotel so we could both walk to the airport and back each day. First night the room I was given had a faulty shower and something melted/smeared over the plastic basin unit, I also complained about the fact that the website says free wifi but when you login it is restricted web access, for the price they charge 144.00 a night per room plus 14.50 for breakfast, I don't expect cheap tricks like this. Anyway was given an alternative room and 1 nights "unlimited" internet access, acttually staying 4 nights. The new room has the paint lifting off from water damage in the toilet area. The shower tray and hand basin sinks are partially blocked, despite asking for them to be looked at nothing happens. The evening meal was a reasonable quality although it varied from night to night even the same dish would have varying quantities. I ordered the Special burger one evening and I am the customer (and what does that mean people - The Customer is Always Right) so when I ask for it to be well done (yes I know it ruins good meat but that's your opinion) I show them the picture in the menu which shows it pink and say not pink, brown very well done, crispy bordering on burnt. Yep has to be sent back because it's not cooked through. Breakfast is very overpriced for what is on offer, the pastries are always hard and stale seems like they must cook them the day before. overall a very limited selection pots of prepackaged yoghurt cold pancakes under an inefectual heat lamp. A hot selection that is so small I don't know why they bother. Finally on checking out I am charged for breakfast even though I have an email showing that it is prepaid from the central booking office, they charge me for 2 breakfasts on 1 day.

Stayed here for one night with my family. At check in, they gave us a room which was having the door fixed, so could not really enter. They gave us another room but this stank of smoke. So ended up having to change rooms AGAIN!

Asked for a baby cot at around 1pm ... Eventually turned up at around 11pm after way too many calls down to reception.

Room itself was OK. For €144 excluding breakfast, it was a bit pricey for what we received.

Dont get the breakfast from here. Walk out the hotel towards the rear of the building you will find a boulangerie. 70c for a criossaint and €1 for a coffee.
