Nicely positioned in a quiet spot but still very handy for everything. The Ellington is around five minutes walk from the Etoile Shopping mall and ten minutes from the bus stop to/from the airport (30 minutes on the 98 at a cost of €6 per person). It is also situated well for the central restaurants as well as the beaches.
The reception staff were exremely helpful and had a room ready for us even though we arrived at 11am (normal check in is 3pm). In addition, we were upgraded to a deluxe room. The room was comfortable and well serviced each morning. The reception staff also arranged a late checkout for us which was most welcome as we were not flying out of Nice until 21.25.
Breakfast was very good and offered a selection of pastries and breads along with scrambled eggs, sausages, bacon and potatoes. The breakfast room was clean, well set out and there were no queues for food (we stayed at the end of November into December).
Bar service was prompt but, and this is the only negative point, very expensive. At €10 for a Vodka and Coke we didn't spend much time there.
The local bus services were excellent and we took a No 100 from Place Garibaldi (10 mins walk from the Hotel) to Monaco (30 mins) at a fare of €1.50. The bus takes the coast road and offers lovely views throughout the journey and is definitely a worthwhile trip.
The Ellington is nice hotel with very helpful and friendly staff. It's a hotel we would recommend and one that we would definitely return to.
