What a gem this is. Nestled on the side of the hill in the Grande Corniche above Nice, this hotel is a real find. It only has 11 rooms and all have fabulous views over Nice. The rooms are well appointed and have excellent beds. We had a room for four and there was plenty of space. Be aware that all rooms have some stairs to negotiate. Some have just a few where others have more. Our room was on the bottom terrace and had about 40 to 50 steps down to it. We knew this when we booked so had packed small plastic bags with a change of clothes and toilet bag in them. There is no parking but you can park on the street for free. If you can't get a spot opposite the hotel there is a red footpath about 100 meters down on the same side where there is always a park available. The owners both speak excellent English and are very very helpful. A good WIFI service is available.
To go down to town you can drive and find parking in the car parks but there is a shuttle bus that stops right outside the hotel. You can catch it down for 1.50 euro. It stops running at 7.50 pm so if you are coming back after that it might have to be a taxi. At the bottom of the hill leading up to the hotel there is a tram that will take you further into town. Only problem is you would have to walk down and up the hill which is a major effort. You could of course catch a taxi from there or park your car down close to the stop and drive up.
Breakfast is served in the room off reception. Continental is 7.50 and cooked 11.50. Beautifully presented and delicious. You can soak up the view whilst dining. Dinner is also available but you must book this before midday the day before. Ranged from about 22.50 to 25 euro I think.
One of the best moments was sitting on the terrace outside our room and just simply enjoying the view. You can see the whole of Nice below including the airport.
Definitely are good choice to stay.
