We were not sure exactly what to expect when we booked this little hotel in a more residential area of Nice and it turned out to be the most pleasant surprise of our trip. We showed up early and without giving notification about our time of arrival after realising that it would be easier to drop off our lugguage at the hotel before returning our rental car. Our lugguage was stored and we were given a map and directions and went off to enjoy a day in Nice.
We returned in the afternoon at an arranged time to be shown to the nicest little room we had while in France. This was room 3 and it includes its own bright little conservatory room. Over the course of our three night stay we enjoyed using this room to relax, sip some wine and even brought in dinner one night when we tired of looking for restaurants.
The bedroom itself was a good size and comfortable. The bathroom had two sinks and a decent sized shower which we found to be very unusual in France. Everything was modern, clean and well cared for.
We decided to eat breakfast in the hotel at a cost of 12 euros each per day and we thought it was a great deal. It is served in a beautiful courtyard with an orange tree and a palm tree and it was very peaceful beautiful place to start the day. The food was plentiful and nicely presented. Our hosts were so charming and friendly and we met another nice couple also from Canada and they gave us some valuable hints for dinner.
I would highly recommend this cute little hotel but be prepared to do a lot of walking or take the time to figure out the buses.
We needed to return to the train station for an early morning train and a cab was arranged for us. This was the only disappointment we had in Nice. The trip was only 1.5 miles but just a little too far to walk with our lugguage and the cab driver charged us 23 euros. We were upset about this but felt we had no choice but to pay. I would definitely ask the rate up front if you plan to use the cabs.
