Hotel Regence
Ranked #44 of 203 Hotels in Nice
Reviewed May 28, 2013

We recently stayed overnight in this hotel. It was conveniently located to Place Messina, many good restaurants and the airport shuttle bus. iIt was a five minutes' walk to the beautiful azure beach and just a ten minutes to the Old Town. The hotel is tastefully decorated and the staff friendly, welcoming and ever ready to assist. Rooms, although small, are clean and comfortable. I have only one criticism of this hotel - they could do with some new towels in the bathroom. Ours were very small and almost threadbare. Despite this, I would recommend the hotel for a short stay in this vibrant and ever improving city.

A great location, good prices, and a basic breakfast as part of the daily rate. The room was clean, housekeeping was good, the TV had BBC so we could understand at least one channel, and a helpful front desk staff. We arrived early in the morning due to limited flight options, but were allowed to check in. The only drawback, but a major one, was that the room temperature was too hot. We were told the air conditioning was not operational because they had not turned it on for the summer season. (We were there in early May.) We opened the window several times, but then the noise was too loud to sleep. We suffered through with either earplugs or no sheets. I liked the hotel, but it the hot room would be a dealbreaker for my wife.

Room Tip: Our room overlooked a small courtyard which compromised privacy with the other guests. I can't s...

Located in between main tourist restaurant areas this has a very smart lobby. Rooms are very small I struggled to walk round the bed and this was much smaller than two star Little Palace rooms. Wifi good but a miserly extra euro for the hotel code. Staff pleasant and rooms clean. Ok

Excellent experience, in the heart of the pedestrianised area. Mid renovation, but being done very discreetly so not a problem, Our twin room was bright and clean, lovely shower room. TV with 3 British channels as well as others. Breakfast was what we would call Continental - pain au chocolat, croissants and bread rolls. If you want cold milk ask the staff - its in the fridge.
Room needed a full-length mirror - our only complaint.

Room Tip: We were overlooking the rear courtyard area - very quiet.

Right on rue Massena, the Regence is a great starting point to get to the Promenade, a 7 minute walk, to the Cours Saleya (Marches Aux Fleurs), a 12 minute walk and to Ave Jean Medicin, maybe 5 minutes. The beautiful Place Massena is a straight walk to the right from the hotel and a new branch of J Multari, patisserie-boulangerie-lunch-to-go place = highly recommended.
We had Room 501- quiet, sufficiently-appointed and clean. And the staff...they were attentive, helpful, efficient and friendly. Start the conversation in French and it will warm their hearts. We were not fluent but we managed and they were very responsive, :)
The street is pedestrian-only so it's nice and great to observe people from the restaurants located all around. The breakfast is OK= a basket containing a variety of breads & croissants. Coffee and juice machines are available and you can refill often. I booked by emailing them and they were responsive with all my questions. Very easy to work with and a really nice hotel, all around. We plan to return in October 2014. We are a Mom & Daughter team and we are experienced travelers. My daughter first visited Nice when she was 8. She is now a mature young lady! We love Nice and the Hotel Regence is super.

Room Tip: The quiet rooms are in the back with a courtyard in the middle. They are decorated minimally but ver...

If you are looking for cheap and cheerful in the thick of all the action this place is ideal. The rooms are small, but perfectly adequate for a few nights stop over. Staff are friendly and very helpful. Breakfast is the only downside. Very basic, all that was on offer was a coffee/tea and a croissant!

The Regence Hotel on Rue Masséna is just off Place Masséna - the centre and hub of Nice. It could hardly be in a better location. Pretty much all aspects of the hotel were very good. The "Continental"Breakfast" was a bit sparse (I am Irish!). Would have liked some cereals and maybe a wider range of cheeses - only "Laughing Cow" offered. Only had breakfast in Hotel, so cannot comment on Dinner - if available?. Remember that Wifi costs €3 per day and if using a second computer or smart phone you will have to buy a second subscription. Speed was a bit slow but adequate.
Nice is a city I would recommend anyone to visit - could not be 'nicer' (sic). There is a cafe culture buzz unlike any other city I have been in. There is a wide range of restaurants in the older part of town - all only 10 min walk from hotel.
Overall really enjoyed my 2 day visit to Nice - go there - i will be back and will stay at the Regence Hotel again.
