“Nice, clean, good base for exploring Nice”
Reviewed August 28, 2012

We stayed at this hotel for 3nights in August. We booked on a room only basis which gave us an opportunity to wonder down to the local boulangerie for some fresh croissants and coffee.

Upon arriving, the reception was very ckean and bright, quite contemporary. The rooms werent ready so we left our bags in the secure room and went for a short walk in search of lunch.

The rooms itself were compact, clean & comfy. There is a small flat screen tv, wardrobe space and a desk. Bathroom comes with hairdryer, shaving point and plenty of towels. The only downfall is everything was quite high up & i'm only 5ft 1" tall but i just about managed to reach the hairdryer!!

All staff were friendly and welcoming. There was 1 guy (didnt get name) but he was extremely helpful in giving us advice on trips around Nice.

In terms of value, its a short walk from main shopping area and old town. The hotel is right opposite Acropolis, 2 minutes walk from Acropolis tram station. Travel is very cheap around Nice but we walked most of the time & enjoyed wondering & exploring the little streets. Everything is within easy reach; beach, old town, bus station to Monaco, main shopping area, port; Id say about 15-20stroll. Even walking back at night i felt comfortable & safe.

Overall i'd stay here again.

This hotel is a 8 minute walk from Place Garabaldi and ten minutes from Old Town. The hotel is nicely decorated and the rooms are air conditioned which was lovely in the heat that Nice has at the moment. We didn't have the breakfast we opted to have breakfast at a lovely boulangerie which was on the Avenue De La Republique which was just on the street parallel, incidently this is where you get the trams from. The staff were very helpful too. Rooms cleaned every day and clean towels too. A lovely quiet hotel and a lovely stay. Would stay again.

On the tram line and only 2 stops away from old Nice and the center of town, this was the perfect place to stay. Since its in a residential area, it was safe at night (we walked home alone, 2 women, around midnight). As well, the rooms were comfortable although a little small, with wonderful beds, duvet covers and air conditioning (!!!). Overall the perfect stay

If you're looking for a clean, budget, hotel in Nice, go no further.

Situated ten minutes walk from the old town, just north of Plas Grimaldi, the nicest square in the city, and convenient for the tram (1 Euro per trip, use it) and Museum of Modern Art, the hotel is well presented and very clean, offering a very good buffet breakfast (cold).

The staff are universally pleasant and can't do enough to help.

Room Tip: If you get the choice, 209 was very good.

This is a lovely hotel! Very clean and modern, just recently redecorated. Rooms were small but you are on holiday to explore Nice- not to sit in your room! Very clean bathroom with clean towels every day. Air con brilliant and no extra charge. Breakfast was delicious and sets you up for the day. Very good value for money hotel - do not be put off by the bad reviews. It really is lovely :) Staff are helpful 24 hours a day, especailly Amelie! Close to the tram and the old town. Only a ten minute walk to the main beach. A brilliant location and hotel. Would definitely come again!

We spent 7 nights here visiting Nice and the surrounding areas. The room was modern and clean, but rather small (floor diagram showed that we had the smallest room however). The air con was effective and the shower was good (wall hair dryer included). Handy location for the tram and old town but a 20 min walk to the beach. The hotel is on quite a busy road and our front facing, first floor room was a bit noisy during the night. The staff are very helpful, with a good level of English; they were happy to arrange a taxi for us. We didn't have breakfast, but the dining room looked pleasant.

Room Tip: Ask for a rear facing room if you want a quieter sleep. Avoid room 106 if you need more space!

A nice hotel that I can reccomend. Very clean and nice rooms. The rooms where somewhat small, but of high standard. Close to Nice old quarters and to the tramway. Great for shorter stays. Friendly and helpfull staff.
