“Fab appartment”
Reviewed June 6, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

Appartment is lovely based in old town, perfect location! The only downfall is the amount of stairs to walk up! Near all of the nice restuarants and bars. Appartment small but I think the same for all nice appartments. Would go again!

“Fantastic View busy square down below”
Reviewed May 14, 2015 for a stay in April 2015

Staying at the Swallows Nest was an excellent experience. The apartment is exactly as advertised. Well kept and perfect for one or two. Looking out the bedroom window was like experiencing a slice of heaven every time. The square down below was always busy and vibrant and I felt like I was right in the middle of everything. By the end of my stay, I didn't want to leave!

“Beautiful apartment in the middle of Nice!”
Reviewed September 17, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

person found this review helpful

I stayed here with my partner for six nights, it was perfect! Very beautiful, mediterranean style decor and a kitchen with everything you could need. We cooked all nights but one, saved a fortune, the restaurant we went to on the one night off from cooking was only a two minute walk away anyway, so we could have easily cooked every night. Right in the centre of the Old Town, oppose Nice Cathedral which you can see from the window clearly, great mountain and city views.

No noise problems for us, it was great to have the window open and listen to the city life (lovely music, etc) from down below, then close the shutters and windows to be totally silenced off! Great nights sleep every night, comfy bed, great fan above the bed so no need to have the window open. Bathroom, shower only but that's all we needed, good size. Everything was very very clean.

It is up a lot of stairs and there is no lift, but this didn't bother us at all. Maybe if you're travelling with an older companion this may be a problem.

Travel connections couldn't be better, the bus from the airport practically dropped us outside. Easy connections to Monaco and Cannes, the 100 bus is a six minute walk away which goes to Monaco which was great for us. The port, a ten - fifteen minute walk away and the wonderful beach is again, only ten minutes away! Perfect.

Lots of great ice cream places in the square below, we often got ice cream and brought it back upstairs with us to eat sat at the window looking over the view. Highly recommended.

“Great apartment, fantastic location only (minor) drawback was lots of stairs!”
Reviewed September 13, 2014 for a stay in September 2014

Lovely apartment, very well furnished and clean. Amazing location in the heart of the old town, right opposite the cathedral - what a view to wake up to! The doors and windows will cut out any noise but could be very warm in the summer without open windows (there is a ceiling fan). Need to be aware it's at the very top of the building up 12 flights of stairs.

“Great Value in Heart of Nice”
Reviewed August 13, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

We were looking for a place for two that was close to the beach, shops, restaurants and attractions and this spot delivered. Fantastic view of Place Rossetti. Easy bus ride from Nice airport, on a Sunday with no traffic took about 20 minutes. Friendly management. Only negatives are 6-floor walk-up (be prepared for some exercise) and a balancing act between closing windows at night to shut off noise below from square versus apartment summer heat due to closed windows. Manageable. All in all 5-stars.

“Fantastic base for exploring Nice”
Reviewed July 31, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

people found this review helpful

Note that the second picture here is actually the view from your window. Beautiful. This is Nice Old Town and if you book the Swallows Nest you’ll be staying right in the heart of it. Which means all the bistros and gelateries and bars that this picturesque place has to offer are right on your doorstep. The location really is excellent, with the beach a 5 minute walk one way and Place Massena with it’s tram and bus connections 5 minutes the other. As for the studio itself, the best compliment we could pay it is that it is exactly as advertised: immaculately clean, comfortable and fully-equipped. There can be no doubt that a lot of thought and effort has gone into making this a stylish and attractive place to stay. We’d also like to thank Matthew for being incredibly welcoming and for his sound advice on the local area. There is only one drawback. Being a lovely quaint old building, there is no lift, only an energy-sapping twelve flights of stairs to negotiate. For us it was worth it for the view.

“Excellent Romantic Hideaway”
Reviewed April 15, 2014 for a stay in April 2014

Excellent romantic hideaway perched above the incredible old town of Nice with it's wonderful restaurants, shops and bars all within a stones throw. Recommend highly to any couple looking for an apartment with wonderful views to dip in and out of the hustle and bustle of the old town. Not suitable for young children and anybody with mobility problems given the number of steps to climb .Short distance to Airport bus 98 and tramway stops making it an excellent base to explore further Monaco, Cannes etc..We apparently are the first couple to stay in the renovated apartment and were very pleased with the standard of decoration and cleanliness. Make sure to close doubleglazed windows at night or you will be in for a surprise in the morning with the Catheral bells!
