Comfort Hotel Galaxie
Reviewed March 31, 2013

We've stayed at the Comfort Galaxie several times but it's reached the point where we'll be making a change for next year. The location is ideal for us, close to the airport and the seafront restaurants of St Laurent du Var, but the hotel is looking very tired and shabby.
The staff are as friendly and helpful as ever but there is so much at the hotel that needs to be done. The corridors are dark and dingy while the rooms need at least a fresh coat of paint. The bathroom was a decent size but the shower curtain and the towels have seen better days.

We stayed here for 3 nights and found it a reasonable place as a base to explore the area. The immediate area is not wonderful but walk for five minutes (towards the sea) and it is a different place. Very close to the airport - but it was 20 euros (one way) for a taxi from the airport. It is not in Nice but in St Laurent du Var. We used the bus to explore - a bargain at 1 euro anywhere along the Cote d'Azur. Our room was fine - clean - some repairs would improve the overall look. Puzzled by some of the comments here about the staff - we found them to be friendly and helpful at all times.

We (Mother & daughter, 31 & 56) stayed in this hotel for 4 days. We did book this hotel thinking that it was in Nice, which it isn't. However the resort of Saint Laurent du Var was lovely and had all we required for a small relaxing trip - beach, restaurants, bars, shops & nice promenade!
The hotel itself is in need of an update, with a very 70's look to the decor. However it is clean with great maid service daily. On first arriving the white towels were not exactly what I would call white, but maybe we were unlucky that first day, as the next few days we were given white newish towels.
The view from the balcony is of a high rise building, so if this is important to you then avoid this hotel.
The staff were all very friendly and helpful and allowed us to keep our room on the last day with no extra charge.
On arrival at the hotel it does look like you've arrived in the middle of furniture shops & busy street, however it is only a 2 min walk to the beach & promenade. Also nearby is a shopping centre - Cap3000.
The beach is pebbles but you can pay & go into a man made sandy beach complex with pool & restaurants, called 'Cocody beach'. The charge is qiute high at 17euros each, but this is much cheaper if you stay at the holiday inn.
Overall the hotel is far from the best but suitable for a short break & the resort makes up for all the hotel lacks.

This hotel was not very cheap and not at all nice. Our taxi driver did not even accept a taxi fare when he dropped us off! The pictures show it on the beach- it is a few blocks surrounded by questionable stores. Once out of the room, the beach and beach restaurants were great- expensive but nice. The room had a smell, wasn't updated, and we didn't feel safe. There were several hotels on the beach that we should have tried. The staff was nice but the rooms and lobby had the feel that they might rent by the hour...

We had a short stay at this hotel. This hotel is in Saint Laurent du Var, not in Nice. If you fly to Nice airport and then drive from there, Nice will be to one side from the airport and the hotel to the other.

The hotel was a few minutes drive from the airport. The building of the hotel didn't look nice, the majority of buildings in the area looked quite poor. I think if you stay there for a long time you might get a wrong impression from French Riviera. On the pictures it looked very differently, I don't know how they did it... The room was ok, even though white towels in the bathroom had unwelcoming greyish tinge. Balcony had a view of other buildings and parking. Toilet and bathroom were separate.

I think, this hotel is ok to stay overnight if you need a room on the night before or after your flight, however for a long stay I would choose something different.
