The Novotel Arenas is somewhere to put your head down for an evening but not much more.
The assistance and advice from the service staff during the day was outstanding
The Rooms are extraordinarily well cleaned
At the Airport end - it's a pleasant walk along the famous Promenade to the old town of Nice and is well positioned with regular cheap bus services and the train.
It's a small number of minutes away from the Nice Airport and yet I never heard an airplane for the entire week I stayed there.
The service from the night staff was extraordinarily poor
No iron and board in the room and this and any extra towels and pillows requires a trip down to the front desk to get them.
The F&B - having stayed at a number of Novotels around the world I've always experienced consistently good F&B - not so much at this property which was disappointing. The breakfast was limited in scope, all the coffee was underwhelming and the dinner and room service meals were made with little visible care and devoid of flavour.
The size of the room TVs is incredibly small and I could find only one english language channel - a news channel - across all the channels - when staying for a week like I did this became tired very very quickly.
I'd recommend the Novotel Nice Arenas as an average business hotel. You should not consider it if you are on leisure but for work it provides the bare minimum one expects - hot showers, reasonable bed. The Novotel Arenas is certainly not the worst hotel experience but it's not fabulous either - it's just averagely okay. The big asset is the daytime reception staff.
