“great!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 21, 2013

We rented two rooms here over the summer. The front desk staff was very friendly and helpful. The rooms were nice and clean with newly updated bathrooms. It is a short (about 5min) walk to the beach and about 1 min walk to restaurants and main strip . There is a rooftop terrace as well which is is rare in Nice. Perfect location and great value for the price. I would definitely stay here again if I go back to Nice

A wonderful stay. Great location, helpful & friendly staff. Within minutes to the train station, promenade/beach and many restaurants. Absolutely recommend this fantastic property.. There is a great bakery on the corner that serve take away coffee and croissants. Fantastic if you are looking for a quick French breakfast..

This is a small, but very cute hotel. It is located just a few blocks from the Promenade. I am surprised by the last review, as we found the staff to be very friendly and helpful. The rooms are small, but clean. Nice is a great city with fine restaurants and enjoyable sites. There is an interesting atmosphere about this city. This hotel is a great home base for Nice and for other cities on the French Riviera. In Nice, be sure to visit Le Chateau for a beautiful view of the city and a great place for a picnic. The old city with its flower market and the Chagall Museum are also recommended. We had breakfast at the hotel for convenience. It was reasonable but not extensive, I would definitely stay at this hotel again.

Room Tip: Avoid the top floor rooms with sloping ceilings. They may result in casualties.

Good location, quiet, good air conditioner in the room, complementary safe, clean, fresh linens and towels, nice bathroom, nice manager.
Very unfriendly front desk staff,
I booked the hotel online based on Rick Steves' Provence and the French Riviera book and when I asked for discount for that(I showed them my book), they refused.
Before leaving the hotel, they could not call the taxi to go to airport, instead they told us to take the bus the last minute.

We very much enjoyed our stay at Hotel Les Cigales. This is a very pleasant boutique hotel, situated only one or two blocks from the beach, lots of restaurants, and easy access to the Nice attractions.

The rooms are tastefully renovated, clean and comfortable, and the reception staff are friendlky and helpful.

We can recommend this hotel.

4 night stay in June 2013. Booked online based on Rick Steves' France 2013 book. Steves' got it right once again.

We arrived by car and were greeted by an enthusiastic and welcoming Mr. Valentino. He guided us to a temporary parking space in front of the hotel and helped us bring our luggage to our room. He guided us to a very convenient parking space next to the property (20 euros per day).

The room was very clean, bathroom had a tub. Location and staff were terrific.

Room Tip: Book parking space when you book the room as there are few. Breakfast was excellent and good value.

Clean, nice, quaint hotel in old town. Walking to all old town. Two blocks from beach (what they call a beach anyway). Our room was on the top floor with vaulted ceilings. Should have asked for a discount on that room. Bumped our heads a few times. Other than that the room was very nice. The shower stall was VERY small but bathrooms were nice other than that. Staff was friendly but did not go out of their way to greet you. Would recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Nice and wanted to say in old town.

Room Tip: If you are on the top floor...ask for a discount! We didn't and not sure if they would offer any...
