I was looking for a cost-effective hotel in Nice for one night, due to having an early morning flight out of the Nice airport. Ellington was reasonably priced (by Nice standards, anyway), and located a few blocks from the city center, public transport and the beaches in Nice. Given the price I paid, I was really only expecting a basic room and simple amenities, and that's pretty much exactly what I found. The lobby area was very nice, and the staff extremely helpful and friendly. The rest of the hotel and the room I had seemed a bit shabby, with worn carpeting and tired appliances. However, everything was quite clean, and the room and bed were comfortable enough. Only downside (which isn't really the hotel's fault) is the taxi fare to the airport was 40 EUR for a pretty short ride - so it may actually be more cost-effective to take a slightly more expensive hotel closer to the airport, if you're only staying one night prior to a flight.
