“Good value for Nice”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 16, 2013

Positives: good location (close to the beach and the promenade), clean, the AC and the wi fi worked well, the staff was attentive and helpful, good size rooms.
Negatives: very cramped little bathroom, with the toilet lid falling off, the bathroom door was closing with difficulty at times (due to humidity, I guess), tiny shower.
Overall: good value. If you come here with low expectations, then you will be pleasantly surprised.

We stayed here for 4 nights. Very good value for money in the centre of Nice. We booked a room with a balcony and it was great to sit out in the evening. We had our breakfast in one of the cafes on the street, but breakfast would be lovely on the balcony. The hotel is so clean. Reception is very helpful. We will stay here again

Room Tip: Book a room with a balcony.

The hotel def not very cheap but considering how expensive Nice as a city is, this was def worth every penny. It superbly located(5 mins walking from the bus stop) and 5 mins walking from the beach as well. We didnt include bfast in our stay and explored all the cafes situated right below the hotel. U can find so many in one lane. Close to beach, old town, 15 mins walking from station. Rooms were amall,neat and well maintained. probably best washroom in our entire trip. We got room with balcony which made it even better.Lifts too small(never seen a smaller one). The staff was very helpful and friendly specially Eugenie and Conchita. Both the ladies were very polite and guided as well with the attractions which we wanted to cover. Beautiful city and we were lucky to have found this hotel at a reasonable price and good location. Will love to come back again

Room Tip: Room with balcony away from street

Nice is an expensive city so while this hotel isn't rock-bottom cheap, it's as good as you'll get for the location: smack in the middle of Nice city centre, a few steps from the bus stop to/from the airport and near enough to walk pretty much everywhere (and also a couple of blocks from the tram line if you're feeling lazy). Very clean, recently refurbished bedrooms and pleasant, helpful reception staff- if I'm ever in Nice again I will definitely stay here. (note: bring ear plugs; the walls are thin)

Room Tip: We booked a balcony room which, while lovely, was not really worth shelling out extra money for, unl...

The hotel only occupies the top two floors of an old style town house but it really delivers on all levels. Whilst the lift is a little but small for my liking, when you get there, you get a warm welcome from all of the staff and nothing seems too much trouble. As there is no breakfast room, we had the wonderful experience of eating our lovely breakfast on the balcony overlooking the houses to the rear of the hotel. All in all, we would definitely go back... Thanks everyone at the Solara

Room Tip: Pay a bit more and have a room with a balcony.

I had been traveling and needed cheap but decent accommodation. This is it! A small clean room with a balcony, TV and shower. Nothing special but very French. I loved it! Yes the lift is small it but worked. Location is right in the heart of old Nice. Café’s and Bars are all on your door step. Railway Station a 10 – 15 minute walk. Staff very helpful and pleasant.

Room Tip: Had room 5 long and thin with Balcony. Outside a bit noisy at night but I use ear plugs.

I scoured reviews for my 4th annual trip to lovely Nice and plumped for the Solara. Had never stayed here before, and as Nice hotels are expensive was slightly nervous before I came about what I would get for £72 a night. I was not disappointed. I had a lovely smart little room with a cute bathroom. Yes the shower was a little small as I am 6ft4" but the outside balcony more than made up for it, and was the envy of my travelling companions staying at a different hotel. I wouldn't bother with 8euros for the breakfast as there are plenty of places nearby offering an express breakfast. I stayed 4 nights. Great location for central Nice.
