“Good location but basic”
Reviewed October 7, 2013

We stayed at the Berlioz at the end of September 2013 and it was in a good location for exploring Nice & the Cote d'Azur, with the railway station a brief walk away. The walk to the promenade was 10 minutes and it was about 15-20 into the Old Town and a bit further to the Port.
The hotel itself was basic and clean. There was no fridge in our room (4), as some have said, which we would have welcomed.
And when we arrived at 18:30pm there was no-one at reception. Instead we'd had an answer phone message giving us a code to get in and our key was left in an envelope on reception - along with several others.
The hotel owner was there in the mornings only, meaning there was nowhere secure to leave the room key during the day & we had to take it with us.
Another fault relates to the City Tax. We booked with Expedia and there is no indication that we'd be charged a City Tax - until we checked out and were given a bill with no explanation about it. We paid but I wish I hadn't!

Room Tip: Were not given a choice over room and the owner was not there to help us change, had we wanted to.

This is a budget hotel, it is simple, basic and clean. It was more like a hostel than a hotel. Staff were friendly, helpful and informative. Our room was very small but adequate to sleep in. There was no access to the roof terrace, we were told it had to be closed due to safely concerns. this was disappointing as it was one of the reasons I had chosen this hotel. The hotel location was good for onward travel as was near the train station and buses to airport. The tramway (to the centre) was 5 mins walk away, and Nice centre about 15 mins walk.

Room Tip: Ask for largest room.

The staff was amazing and very friendly, internet connection was very good. The rooms were quite big and most importantly very clean. The neighbourgood is said to be a little shady, but we didn't have any problems whatsoever and the fact that the Hotel is close to the train station was actually very convinient for us. Excellent price/value. Would go there again.

The hotel is very close to the train station, just 5 min walk. The host is nice and helpful. We live in room no. 2, it is big in size, quiet and with cool air conditioner. The fridge is offered so that we can keep a lot of fruit, salad and drink cold. Don't forget to get a coupon leaflet from the reception desk. You can enjoy a big discount for sightseeing spots like palace and museum. There are many restaurants and cafe nearby. Strongly recommend.

The hotel is easy to find. Though maybe the room was not as expected seeing through the pictures, but it was nice, clean and quite. The bathroom was not disappointing at all.

The receptionist aka owner of the hotel was the biggest surprise: very caring, helpful and friendly.

I recently stayed for one night in the Hotel Berlioz (my third stay in this hotel) and was, as ever, very pleased with my stay. The hotel is very simple, clean and reasonably priced - and extremely well placed for the station and express bus (No.99) to/from the airport. I will be booking with JP again for next year.
