Having an early flight sort of forced me to grab a non-smoking airport hotel close by in Nice. Lovely service checking in.... staff are great. Got to room 201... smelled like an ashtray so back to the front desk with all my gear and wonderful staff apologized, very professional, quickly gave me a card for 608 which was a little larger by the way and very pleasant. If you ignore the large black stain in the carpet beside the bed. Now, maybe someone spilled ink there; maybe someone killed a squid and prepared a small snack; maybe a mafioso was executed.
When I called the front desk.. Marianna was so good, offered another room but I was getting tired and said it is not a big problem but I don't want to be charged for the obvious damage to the carpet. Marianna handled it well apologizing profusely. Slight problem later.... I checked regarding my 4AM wake up call which had been written down for room 201 and Surprise! it hadn't been changed to #608. Sure would have been choked if that oversight had made me miss the long flight back to Canada.
The pillows were the most uncomfortable I have ever experienced but the room was comfortable, bathroom clean and wifi was just okay. Dinner was good service and bland food but okay price. Next time I will stay in Nice and spend the money on an early taxi.

Room Tip: Check for blood stains.... and cigarette smelly rooms...ugh.

Near to the airport but 15 mins drive away from the city. The hotel is located near to the main road which you lead you back from the city.

The soundproofing in the room is excellent. Can't hear any aircraft noise at all.

The room look dated. Something which I did not expect after seeing the lobby.

Good functional airport hotel with no nasty surprises. You can arrive by shuttle bus (navette) from the airport, staff are multi-lingual and helpful and check-in and out very efficient. Rooms spacious and comfortable with fridge and tea/coffee facilities, ample hanging space etc. My only minor complaints would be the sealed environment is a bit overheated and you can't open the window and there's no English language channel on the TV, otherwise it's all good. I booked a rate that included breakfast and was glad I had, it's a well-stocked though unexciting international style buffet with limitless tea / coffee / juice etc. and there's nowhere else to go locally.
The location is not only handy for the airport (5 mins) but also for Gare Saint Augustin, from where you can take the train to anywhere on the Cote d'Azur (it's an unmanned station though, so you'll need to be able to cope with the ticket machine) and also local buses to the big Cap 3000 mall at Saint Laurent du Var (2 stops, 1 Euro) and central Nice.
I probably wouldn't want to stay here more than a couple of nights just because there are so many other offerings with better views etc. locally but as an airport hotel it functions just fine and I'd use it again.

As one would expect from a Novotel ,it was very clean,spacious,modern and well appointed hotel. However it was let down,for us,by a mediocre,expensive offering in the restaurant .
The hotel's location is very good for Nice airport,with a very efficient shuttle bus service.

Pros:
- nice spacious rooms
- bathrooms are very good ( separate barh tub area)
- hotel is very new and well decorated
- staff is attentive and helpful

Location:
- whether it is in front of the airport, you do not hear a single noise from your room. It is not far from the city centre, by car or taxi. there are not many options to have dinner or coffee unless you take a car. It is also in front of the sea.

Breakfast is good, not magnificent but ok. Good variety. Not so good coffee.You can have a continental breakfast (croissant,juice, breads, coffe, etc) in your room with no additional cost.

Beds are ok, though a little hard in my opinion.

Room Tip: Best rates at novotel webpage or Booking.com. Sometimes, at Novotel webpage, you con find promotions...
