The problem with this hotel is that it is listed as being on Rue Massena, and it is - but that is a pedestrian-only street. Our GPS kept telling us to go down it! We eventually had to double-park (not so uncommon in Nice), my wife stayed with the car and I went to find the hotel. If I had been by myself I do not know how I could have handled this. Then we were told we could park at their sister hotel about 4 blocks away. So we unloaded our luggage, brought it to the room, and then drove to that parking garage. I may not sound like a big deal, but this part of Nice is a maze of one-way and pedestrian streets. Phew. It was great to have that behind us and the car stayed parked until we left Nice.
OK, once at the hotel, we were ideally located right on the Rue Massena with shops and restaurants. It is close to the main old town as well. If you prefer a dip in the ocean, that is only a block away as well. Our room was modest but fine. We elected to have breakfast there, a good call because for some reason none of the many cafes and restaurants were open before 10AM. The staff was very nice but it was apparent that lots of guests had the same issues we had upon arrival. Even if you took a taxi here, you still could not get within a couple of blocks of the front door.
