Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

No kettle with tea/coffee in the bedroom was the only downside to this hotel. Everything else was just as expected.

The staff were very friendly, smiley and polite.

The location was 5-10 minutes walk from the Port, old down and the city center.

no kettle in room = 0/10
location 10/10
breakfast 10/10
service from staff 11/10

Would I recommend? yes

Great little 3* hotel. Not too far from anything. Basic, but was ok for us as a B&B 3 night stay. Beds comfy, room cleaned each day, breakfast adequate but if you are looking for a huge selection in the morning this isn’t for you. Could do with tea and coffee in the rooms. Great receptionists, friendly and great English. Keen to show you where to go in Nice and Monaco with was so helpful. Would go back.

A lovely little bed and breakfast, perfect for a long weekend getaway. The staff were lovely and I thoroughly enjoyed the breakfasts that were on selection in the morning. Couldn’t have picked a better place to stay for our first holiday together

The hotel is well situated and the staff are friendly. The reception area and breakfast room are modern and nicely furnished. The bedrooms and bathrooms were clean but very small and a bit of a disappointment. The beds were comfy and the linen was good.

Well located hotel close to tram and old town is only a 20 minute walk. Rooms are small . Good wardrobe space . Bathroom very small and a little awkward to got in and out of bathtub as shower is located over the tub. Shower placement also awkward as there is no shower screen or curtain so water goes all over the bathroom.

Do NOT stay here!! If you want a relaxing stay in Nice then this hotel is not for you!! There is so much noise from outside that you will not get a minutes sleep!! The hotel is very dated and in my opinion should not be rated as a 3 star hotel - it might just scrape through with 1 star!!

We would not recommend this hotel to anyone. The price too expensive for the type of accomadation we had. This is supposed to be a three star but i would not give it One star. The moment you complain about being robbed the next day you find you have no clean towels. The room had a window which overlooked a wall and was a very dark room with no sunlight. It had a deep crack in one of the walls, and the walls were also dirty. You could hear the room next door talking and moving around. The wardrobe was falling apart. Underneath the bed it was dirty.

We agree with the previous reviewer. We stayed at this hotel for four hot days in July and the air conditioning system was out of service the entire time. Our room was so loud that when we opened our windows to get some air at night the sound of the buses going by on Blvd Risso was deafening. Eventually we were moved to a back room, but the windows looked out on an air shaft and so there was no airflow. Breakfast was inedible, and the hotel appeared to be run by teenagers. This is a pensione at best, not a three star hotel.

I decided, spur of the moment, to book a week in Nice. I found a last minute deal with the Hotel Relais D'Acropolis for 5 nights at a very reasonable rate.
Hotel room was spotless, no noise, ammmmazing shower - better than my one at home. The staff were so helpful and friendly and very happy to help me at all hours. It is very well situated for both the train station and the trams, which are great. Train goes to Cannes, via Antibes. The beach was a 10-15 min walk away but you have to walk through the markets (such a hardship...) or the beautiful Parc du Jardin/Acropolis. I went on my own and had the most amazing time, the hotel was like home and Florence has become a friend since I stayed. She was so helpful, and chatty and really made me feel at home. All the staff make an effort to speak English or Italian if needed and basically, I was so lucky to find such a great place. I would totally recommend it to anyone. It is so central and you don't really have to think about public transport at all. I am definitely going back, I adore Nice, so look forward to next time!

My mother and I stayed here for 2 nights early June 2014 in Nice after making the confirmation on www.booking.com. I made the booking about 2 weeks prior to my arrival for Eur100 per night for a double room.

I had wanted a place near the Nice Train Station Riquier which is a less crowded station than the central Nice-Vielle Station, as I wanted to travel to Cannes, a 45min train ride. Hotel Relais D' Acropolis was one of the several hotels near the Riquier station which was fairly affordable based on the online prices then. Other hotels in the vicinity included Hipark, Espirit d’Azur, Hotel Ibis Nice Palais des Congres, Commodore Hotel.

I travelled with my 70-year old mother who can’t walk very well.

In terms of travelling from Nice Airport Terminal 2 to the hotel, it costed Eur 35 for a 15-20min taxi ride in smooth traffic using the metre. Only after we explored the place, did we realise that there was a direct airport bus 98 and you can take this bus right outside from train station Riquier. Bus 98 will bring you directly to the Nice airport Terminal 2 first (then Terminal 1) for Eur 6 per pax. It was a 45-60min ride, depending on traffic.

Another way to go to the hotel from the Nice Airport is to take the same bus 98. To take the bus, you just need to cross the road across the arrivals and look for the coach bays and the bus number 98 to Nice. Once on board the bus, take it all the way to the end (I believe it will stop at station Riquier) and if you can plot out the route on the map beforehand, you will be able to reach the hotel in about 10-15mins by walking. Alternatively, on the Hotel’s website, it says that you can take bus 98 and stop at this tram station “Cathedrale Ville-Vielle” and take the tram towards “Hopital Pasteur” and stop at “Acropolis” stop. However, if I recall correctly, bus 98 does not actually run on the same road as the tram stop Cathedrale Ville-Ville. It might be useful to ask the bus driver to alert you when the bus-stop, which is near Cathedrale Ville-Ville, is coming up. Once you alight, you have to walk over to the road where the tram-line tracks are.

After having read the reviews at this hotel, I was mentally prepared for a small room and when I saw the room assigned to us, it was indeed the most “compact” room I have stayed in. I was in a double twin room and the beds took up the entire length of the room. So in order get to the other side of the beds, you either have to slide side-ways at the foot of the beds, or simply walk over the beds. There was a small table, small chair with a flat screen TV on the wall above. The English channels on the TV were mainly news channels, i.e. BBC, CNN, CCTV. My mother didn’t quite like that the room was so small but I was personally fine with it.

The bathroom had a bathtub, small bar of soap, bottle of shampoo and shower gel, attached hair-dryer and 2 set of towels. The bathroom was very “compact” as well. For instance the toilet bowl was just right behind the bathroom door - once you close this bathroom door and you are sitting on the toilet bowl, you can’t bend over, if so, you will touch the bathroom door. My mother had a bit of diarrhoea during the trip (nothing to do with the hotel) and she had to open the bathroom door in order to bend over as she did her business.

For the rest of the room, it was clean and facing the courtyard, so it was quiet.

There was no kettle, compli water, cups or fridge in the hotel room. The reason given to me for not having a kettle was because it would be a “safety hazard”. Because my mother will prefer warm water to take her daily medication, I approached the front desk for a flask of hot water. The lady at the front desk then was very understanding and acceded to my request.

Our room 301 was located on the 3rd floor of the hotel. The lifts are such that they are located in between each floor. So, in order to access the lifts, one has to take a short flight of stairs, be it going up or down. This was a little disappointing as I didn’t realise this before I arrive. My mom has a slight difficulty in climbing stairs. If I had known, I might have opted for another hotel where there are no stairs needed to take the lifts.

We did not take the breakfast at the hotel. There are small cafes and grocery/small supermarkets dotted along the street behind the hotel so it was not a problem to eat outside.

In terms of the location, it was good as i had wanted a hotel that is near the sight-seeing in Nice and also near the train station to go to Cannes. The road behind the hotel is where the tram runs. The nearest tram stop is called Acropolis which is around 2 to 3 blocks away. This tram brings you to the rest of Nice such as the beaches, the Old Town and the shopping strip (where Galeries Lafayette is located) which is around 2- 4 stops away. Even if you did not take the tram, all these places are accessible via walking (just follow the tram-line tracks!). The hotel is also a 10-15 min stroll to train station Riquier which is a smaller station as compared to the central one at Nice-Ville. The trains from Riquier run to Cannes (it will pass by Nice-Ville along the way) and Monaco. However, do note that there are no elevators at station Riquier and there is a rather long flight of stairs up from the ticket booth to the train tracks.

I will add that the service of the hotel staff was one of the best I have seen. It also helped that this is a rather small hotel so the hotel staff is able to entertain your questions without many other guests waiting behind.

When I first checked in, the same lady at the front desk patiently showed me the map of the hotel location and explained how to take the tram, even including suggesting that I should buy 10 flat trip passes for EUR1 each, rather than pay EUR1.50 per flat trip, if I knew that I will be taking the tram quite often. The lady was also knowledgeable about the area, even including the opening hours of Galaries Lafayette. She was able to tell me how to get to train station Riquier and that I could buy the ticket there directly without booking it online. She was also the one who acceded to my request for a flask of hot water immediately (she literally stepped off from the front desk to the kitchen to boil the water for me).

I have to compliment the front desk because I realised not all hotel staff in Nice are that knowledgeable or helpful. I had booked another hotel Hipark on my 3rd night in Nice and the staff there didn’t even know that there was a Riquier station that could go to Cannes and did not even bother to check the internet for me. (I will try to provide a review for Hipark if I have the time)

Overall, for the price that I paid for the hotel and the great service, I decided to give it 4 out of 5 stars.
Did not give it full 5 stars because my mom would still very much preferred to stay in a hotel without having to take the stairs at all.

Good Afternoon, Thank you for the request. It's take 25 minutes walking from the main station to our hotel. With the tramway it's faster 10 minutes only, for 1€50 the ticket. We remain at your disposal. Kind Regards Audrey

Hey, take the bus 98 and get down at Promenade des Arts. It is about 45mins journey. After you get down go to the tram stop just close to it by the name Garibaldi. Your ticket is good for one transfer on trams or buses within an hour, so don’t hesitate to hop on the tramway and get down at the stop by the name Acropolis. The hotel is 3 min walk from that stop. If you don't mind walking for about 700mts, you need not take the tram and just walk up to the Hotel after you get down from Bus 98. Have fun mate.!

You can get to the hotel by taking the 98 bus from the Côte d'Azur Airport for a fare of €6, you can buy the ticket at the kiosk outside the airport, or with the bus driver . Look for "Lignes D'azur" sign (you can google Lignes D'azur) take the bus to the last stop and then is about 5 minute walk north, just fallow the tramway track or take the tramway to "rue Barberies" the hotel is on the corner of "boulevard risso and rue Barberies" Have fun, make sure to check Eze village, is breathtaking.
