Owners checked us in efficiently & helped us make the most of our 1 night in Nice with a map & helpful hints without being intrusive. They also helped us with parking ideas. Our room was on the top floor, cosy & comfy with all we needed. Breakfast was well worth the money, lots of fresh bread & pastries, cheese, fruit, yogurt & jams and juice & coffee. A good start to our day!

Checked in and checked out within hours. Shower had water coming out in three places, toilet leaked, towels were threadbare and gray (presumed they were white at one time), and it seemed the a/c was turned off for the season. Owners were not present at the time. The attendant asked what was wrong with the room, but he spoke little English and I did not speak French so attempting to explain what was wrong would have been futile. The hotel's location is not the best either. Even though the price was attractive, it was still too much for the quality.

A little hotel with fantastic breakfast,cosy, clean, about 200 metres from the beach(Promenade de Anglais) and the sweetest owners ever. We had to get up early to catch our fligth the last day, and the owners had been to the bakery and made breakfast for us at 7 o clock in the morning, croissants, baquettes and really good coffe and juice- good service . We had a really nice room with toilet and bath and a nice bed and wery quiet..When we arrived we got a city map and lots of good advice.I can highly recommend this hotel. If I get back to Nice I would surely stay here again. It is very good value for money.:-)

Gay run hotel but is 'straight friendly'. In excellent location to promenade des anglais ( 5 mins walk) Supper market round corner from hotel. Had very good knowledge of english. Could not do enough to help us while staying there. Had detailed maps of the area/places to visit etc. Also had maps of gay venues (clubs,bars etc) Breakfast was lovely,and they could not offer you enough of it!!! very nice place indeed. Room was very basic. But we were only in there for sleep. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!

Room Tip: Try not to have room on back as it blocks the light. Also the property next door is doing works and...

Because our trip to Nice was kind of last minute, we made our reservation at this hotel quit quick. We didn't know that this hotel was a gay hotel. We don't have any problems with gay's at all, but we didn't liked the atmosphere in the hotel. It was a bad suprise for us and we didn't feel comfortable. There was too much focus on the whole gay scene and there were some things we found very disturbing. The fact that the our room wasn't clean made it all even worse. The only good thing for us was the location. We tried our best to feel ourself comfortable but we were happy to go home..

We stayed for 3 Nights at Hotel Connexion.
We arrived very early and were greeted by the Owner and it was absolutely no Problem that we were ringing him out way before Check in time.
We could even already check in to our Room and even got served a mini Breakfast to the Room.
Flatscreen Tv,fridge and Free Wifi.
I liked the Easy atmosphere,non of the usual Hotel rules etc..it was as if You go and Visit Your Friends.
All little Wishes we had were fastly made possible.
At Night it Silent and it guarantes You a great Night Sleep!
The Hotel is very Popular amongst Gay people but at no time we felt outstanding as a straight Couple,On the contrary they were all very friendly and very educated.
The Owner of the Hotel is the Gem of the House,he knows the meaning of Coustumer service.
Always a Smile which in Nice is very rare!
We loved the location,in reach of everything fastly and Silent at Night.
If You are looking for a uncomplicated,Simple and FRIENDLY Accomodation stay at Hotel Connexion.
