Hotel de Verdun
Ranked #108 of 203 Hotels in Nice
Reviewed June 20, 2013

We stayed here for one night after having spent three nights in Monte Carlo and this was probably the very wrong way to do it.

The hotel itself is easy to find; you can either walk from the railways station (back to the station, turn left to the road, turn right and follow right down to the covered bridge, the hotel is on the road on your left) or take the tram and get off at the stop where the covered bridge is, and its down the road to your left. The only issue is the entrance; while you would walk past it and not know (the entrance is on a corner and you have to go up two flights of stairs before you get to reception), if you have large heavy suitcases like we did it is almost impossible to get them up the steps as there is no lift up to reception!! That said, the receptionist did kindly come down and carry out bag up, but if he had not it would have been very hard to do.

The hotel is rather run down - carpets need replacing, walls need painting and they certainly need a bigger lift!! The small lift seems to be common in all the french hotels I have stayed it - it will only fit one of you and a suitcase in and it's very slow.

Rooms are much to be desired....the room smelled of damp and it was dark and dingy. We had to keep the window open to try and get air to it. The bedding looked old and rather dirty, the furniture was very old and riddled with woodworm, and the carpet was almost threadbare. It's the first time in a hotel room I felt dirty in. The bathroom was extremely small, however to be fair this was clean and probably the most modern part of it. Make sure your door is locked - it's a key (old school) as opposed to a key card and when we thought ours was locked it wasn't always. hall ways to the room are also very narrow so be careful.

The breakfast room is small but adequate. Its self service, and rather expensive for the quality and what you get I think. Nevertheless it does what it says on the tin - continental breakfast although not much to choose from.

All in all the staff were nice, but I wouldn't ever be staying at this hotel again. We did it 'on the cheap' and 'just for a night' and I wont be doing it again I am afraid. The location is good, as it's only a stones throw away from the promenade des anglais, but I'm afraid the dirty rooms and state of the hotel could not make up for the location or the supposed cheaper cost (NB...it was only 50 euros extra to stay another night in our 4* hotel in monaco...I regret not doing this in hindsight...while you can't possibly compare the two I understand, the fact is this hotel was not worth the price).

on a recent trip to Nice we stayed here for 5 nights. It is in a great location, literally minutes from the beach, bar, restaurants, the tram the main street etc. the hotel is slightly dated but it is very clean and the staff are so helpful. they gave me ice when i hurt my foot and printed out boarding cards for our flight before we left. genuinely worth a stay if you are looking for a great location with out spending a fortune.

This hotel was close to the beach and a popular area with restaurants and tourists. The entrance to the hotel was right next to a corner where 3 homeless men camped out and yelled loudly, which made us somewhat uncomfortable to go back late at night. Overall the room was clean and the bathroom was new. We recommend staying here.

I read a lot of these reviews AFTER I had booked, so was prepared for the worst!
We got the 'brown bed cover' room. But it was very clean, the linen smelt fresh and the bed was surprisingly comfortable! The bathroom is very small. A big man will struggle to sit on the loo. But for us it was fine. Shower was hit with good water pressure. Air conditioner was a bit loud, so we left it off. The walls are thin, you may hear other guests nocturnal noises.
The location is fantastic. Close to the old town, the tram lines, and the 98 bus to the airport. The staff members were extremely friendly, the female day receptionist in particular was very warm and welcoming.
If you want a cheaper room and don't mind it a little shabby around the edges, this hotel is great. I actually enjoyed our stay there!

Fantastic location in the centre of Nice, staff very friendly and helpful, small rooms, sheets and bed were clean but curtains and covers a bit dusty. Excellent breakfast (not included in price of room). Fine for a two star hotel.

You can find this hotel in the centre of Nice, in the modern area near the main shopping centres and the very close Massena square. it is not a big hotel and the room was really small and a little noisy beacuse of the thin-walled but too comfortable and clean even if the furniture is quite old.
The staff was really helpfull and a special thanks goes to Aaron and his availability!
see you!

Very clean but dated. Some lovely original features like a marble fireplace in our room but awful brown carpet and peeling wallpaper. New bathroom with corner bath but you have to sit in it to get a shower.
Generous breakfast including ham and cheese and lovely helpful staff.
Brilliant location. Not so brilliant bedding but clean.
