“Affordable in great location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 2, 2013

Basic hotel in a great location close to beach, transport, and restaurants. Room was basic but clean and comfortable. Staff were friendly and helpful. We had a car, so getting parking in a near by hotel for €10 per day was great value (this was organized by the reception staff).

The location of this hotel could not be beaten for a short break. In the 3 nights we stayed we never had to walk more than 2 minutes home at night. As you can see from the photographs it has a very attractive reception/lounge area. Unfortunately when you go through the door to the corridors where the rooms are situated it changes dramtically. Although clean the corridors are drab with low ceilings and 70s style red carpet. My main complaint was the room itself. I wasn't surpised it was small (this is France) but it seemed to lack charm and the layout didn't utilise the space very well. The bathroom was a decent size and very clean, although there is no bath,just a shower(nice and hot). The TV had BBC 1&2 on it, rather bizarrely the Scottish version, which was very welcome. I'm puzzled by complaints about breakfast. It is a perfectly normal French continental breakfast i.e. one croissant, one roll, one pain au chocolat, tea or coffee and juice. I agree it's not much but seeing how much the French eat for lunch I can understand it. Wi-Fi is available for 1E per 24 hours. The staff are very good and all speak english well

We planned Nice and Hotel Regence to be just a quick stop on our way to Italian Riviera, but because the hotel was so fairly priced and had a day and a day and a day more to extend our stay, we decided to stay in Nice almost a week!

Regence is located in Rue de Massena, which has nice restaurants and bars all over, and also nice shopping possibilities! The beach is almost around the corner, and you can find Chanel, LV and so much more just a few steps away. The street starts from the Massena square, where you cand find the tram stops and your way to Old Town or anywhere else.

Hotel itself is clean and simple, room had a big comfortable bed and spacious bathroom with good shower. Definitely recommend if you wanna explore Nice and its beach!

Great location for exploring Nice. We asked for a quiet room, and were given one at the back- couldn't hear any noise from the street at all.
5 minutes walk from the beach, easy reach of the bus stops to get to/from the airport if you want to keep costs down and avoid paying for a taxi.
Room was clean, comfortable and basic. Very minor niggle is that the hair dryer was broken in the room (but still functioned) and it wasn't exactly very powerful, so if you have long hair, take your own!

I would definitely stay here again for a summer holiday. If I were going again at a time when the weather wouldn't be so good, I'd get a hotel with more stuff to do/going on.

stayed there in Sep 2013 with 2 friends and we had a fantastic experience!
Room was good size and clean. Excellent location, easy access to the beach, train station & bus stops and lots of restaurants and shops at your doorstep.
All staff was VERY friendly and helpful. We would definitely stay there again. Big thanks to Alexandre and the rest of team that made our stay in Nice even more enjoyable!

Room Tip: our room was on 3rd floor - very spacious front room can be a bit noisy as lots of restaurants down...
