Do not expect to stay in a 4 star hotel, as stated on Expedia, while at the Hi Hotel in Nice. The hotel room we were given from an Expedia package was so small that an ironing board would not fit in the room. When asked for what we reserved, a king bed, we were told that we could upgrade but for an additional 50 euro a night. Because we could not stay in the cruise ship sized room for another night we upgraded to the larger room at the extra cost.
The next room was larger but not to our liking. Where the Hi Hotel is trying to be trendy they are missing on conveniences most travelers, outside of hostel-goers, would expect. For instance, the television did not have a remote rather a highly confusing AV styled unit on the wall, the room did not have a shower just a bath, and the toilet area had no privacy (clear glass).
The hotel is convenient to most restaurants and bars and is 4 blocks from the beach, of which you have to pay for if you want to go to the Hi Beach. The front desk staff is very nice, to me though. I did witness an exchange between a front desk staffer and a guest where the front desk rudely informed the guest that "she was not the queen of this hotel," and that was after he hung up on her when she was complaining her in-room hair dryer was broken.
The housekeeping staff did an excellent job and should be commended on their quality work.
In summary, the hotel is way too expensive for what you get. Don't get pulled in by their trendiness and the unique look of their hotel. You will be inconvenienced and feel robbed by the money you are paying.
