5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 8, 2013

This, Is a really great Hotel, The Staff are the friendliest, I've" Met in Nice Especially front of Desk, we had a front facing room and there was no noise, at all it is really more than a 3 star Hotel, akin to one of the Hilton Hotel"s in London anyway , room a bit smaller but Amazing value for Money, it Certainly should not be classed as a Budget Hotel, Be back again,Big Thank You to the Staff

Room Tip: We did not eat in the Restaurant, and I don"t know if it has a pool

Very good location with short walk to Nice Ville train station, and situated on popular tram serviced street with numerous restaurants and cafes. Easy and interesting 20 minutes walk down to the beach and the Vieux 'Old' Nice area. Modernised rooms were pleasing although the 'double' bed comprised two single beds with very firm mattresses that did not assist our sleep.
We were also disappointed that our non-smoking booking preference was not honoured and we were informed that 1.5 floors were designated smoking and that was all that was available for us. Reception staff were helpful and pleasant but our stay was down-graded because of the above issues. Reasonable value choice.

Room Tip: If you have a 'non-smoking' room preference we were advised that you should stipulate that y...

Excellent location, friendly, helpful hotel staff, abundant breakfast choices! I loved everything about this hotel starting from the location. It's very close to the Nice Ville train station also close to many good restaurants, close to the beach, too.--strategic location indeed!

The hotel staff were wonderful! They treated me nicely, very helpful in tour booking, information, etc. You've got a 5-star service from this 3-star hotel. Even the hotel maid was also friendly and nice to guests.

Breakfast was abundant! Many choices for you to choose to eat. I loved and enjoyed the breakfast of this hotel.

The perfect hotel to recommend indeed! What more could I say?

This is unlike any Best Western I have ever visited. This is more like an exclusive hotel. From check in to check out this is the stuff you get with 4 star or more hotels. The street this hotel is on is a walk street. Only trams are allowed on this street so forget about cabbing it!! 5 minute walk to the train station. Would stay here again....

The first thing I'll remember about this hotel is the extremely friendly staff - I stay a lot in different hotels and the staff at Best Western Alba is one of the friendliest and kindest I've ever met; as I was obliged to use crunches during my stay, they were more than helpful and doing all they could to make my stay easier.
Even the room was suitable for people with mobility impairment. Easy access to shower, bathroom wide enough and many grap bars. The room was beautifully decorated, spotlessly clean and super quiet even if it was facing the main shopping street in Nice. There was also a minibar/fridge, coffee/tea making facilities and free access to wifi was included.
The location of the hotel is definitely super, very close to the shopping, restaurants, public transportation (tram basically in front of the hotel) and within a short walk to the beautiful seaside.
I'd definitely recommend the hotel to everyone and also to people who have mobility impairments (there is one step in front of the hotel you need to take but otherwise no problems to get around if you can get up from the wheelchair because the lift is somewhat small and most wheelchairs won't fit in it). It really makes a difference to stay at a hotel like this where the staff makes your stay definitely fantastic and the room is all you can ask for!

This is an affordable, nice hotel located right on the Avenue Jean Medecin and half way between two tram stops. The free WiFi works well and the staff were very friendly and helpful. The only negative was the fact that tobacco smoke from the neighboring room was able to enter our room through the ventilation duct in the WC. The main railway station is a five minute walk away, as is the stop for the 99 express bus to the airport.
