“an average hotel but a terrible stay”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 17, 2014

I go there for business but I'd like to stay near the (French Riviera aka Cote d'azur) and I was there in Sep 2013 before and it was lovely but this time I came in Dec 2013. And I hated every single day of it.. First of all, construction workers only work at night so you cant sleep.. 50% of the hotel around this area do their renovation this time of the year and us who visit the city during that time have to suffer..Nice is a beautiful city but during winter,,,, its so boring,, people vanish, not a lot of tourists, most stores are closed and the beach is abandoned, cause its so cold anyway. The room is kinda small but bigger than what consider's small in Europe. Of course no A/C is on in all Nice during winter so you have to open the window to get some air, and by opening the window,,the construction and the drunk's noise comes in too. The location is amazing though,, no better location than this,, Stay around it or stay in it, its not that bad during summer.

Room Tip: Dont stay in Nice during Winter. its the construction and renovation time of the year.

The hotel is very close to the sea front and well located for the shops and restaurants of central Nice. It does mean there is some bustle/noise from the streets around but the windows/doors kept that at bay. The staff were spoke English and wer very helpful. The room was small but clean. The wardrobe was very small meaning that there was not much hanging space for two people over 5 nights and the double bed had two single duvets rather than one double duvet.
There was free Wifi which was slightly annoying because you needed to type the password in again each time you went back to it. We did not have breakfast preferring at 14Euros but to sit out in a few of the many cafes locally.

Room Tip: They have rooms with very small balconies but it is well worth having one overlooking the Avenue de...

We stayed here for 5 nights and found it to be well located and reasonably comfortable. Our room faced Avenue de Suede and it was quite noisy at night with street sounds wafting upwards. The bathroom was very 'cosy' and showering wasn't a pleasure- if you weren't careful the bathroom floor could easily flood. The wifi was also very flakey and we had a couple of issues with housekeeping. All that aside, it's location is great and we could glimpse the sea from our window. The walk to the train station was easy and about 10 minutes and all other attractions were close by. Reception staff were always cheery and helpful. We stayed over the Grand Prix weekend and hotel price was reasonable. Would stay there again and hopefully will have the opportunity as we loved Nice!

Hotel de Suede is in a brilliant spot just one block behind the main strip Rue de Anglaise which is along the gorgeous azure water. It is so easy to get to the hotel from the airport via the bus service 98, and easy to walk through the streets even with suitcases and baby prom, etc. it is great for a 3 star hotel, but had a few drawbacks. One, the walls were very thin! We had an 18month old with us who on the whole is not a crier, but on our first night a few minutes if whinging from our baby led to people in room next door banging on the walls and asking us to shut up! Not the hotels fault I know. But it got rather annoying when there was more banging and yelling through the walls at us at 9.30am, for merely playing or whatever it was that we were doing. There was absolutely no crying or whinging from our room at this point. Hotel staff were very friendly and sympathetic when we spoke to them upon leaving the hotel later that morning (we hated being 'those people' ruining others' stay), and upon our return to hotel later, they informed us that those in the room next door had been relocated to another room. The other drawback was that the bathroom was very poorly lit. Without any natural light the two small bulbs did not provide sufficient enough light for much, and made shaving very difficult! Also, we had a double bed in our room, but were provided with two single bed duvets and some of the towels provided to us had holes in them. Other than this, it was a comfortable stay with a sufficient breakfast provided

Hotel Suede is in a great location in Nice. About one block from the Promenade and a couple blocks from the Flower Market. It's right in the heart of everything. The front desk staff was very friendly and accommodating. We arrived about 3 hours before check in and just asked to have our luggage held. They were able to check us in and provide us with a room at that time. Great service! The only down side was that it was the end of April so there was no A/C at the time - something about it was being serviced and shut down. Coming from a colder town in Germany to a much warmer location on the French Riviera made it a little hot and stuffy in our room. We would leave the windows open every time we left and maid service would close them. So coming back at the end of the day made the room hot and stuffy all over again. We did have a window that faced other windows at the center of the building so there was not much air flow. Other than that it was a great place to stay and affordable so we could spend our money doing so many things in the city.

We have just spent 4 nights at this hotel and thoroughly enjoyed our stay there. It is in an excellent location just off the Promenade des Anglais and is surrounded by some good restaurants and shops. It is a pleasant stroll to the old town and a similar short stroll to the main shopping area. Also about 10 minutes easy walk to the train station if you fancy going down the coast either way to Monaco or Cannes. No complaints with our room which was on the 4th floor and overlooked the street above the main entrance - some of the rooms around us had small balconies but the lack of one in our room was not a problem for us. Breakfast cost 12 euros and was just about worth it. Staff on reception and in the restaurant were very helpful and spoke excellent English this makes us tourists very lazy!!!
