From reading the reviews of the hotel, I was expecting and a slighted dated hotel but one with plenty of charm not seen at a big chain hotel. To be fair that is exactly what we got. We stayed 7 nights, from the 5th to 12th of August 14.
The location of the hotel is very close to the Tram Network [Jean Medicin stop] and the Nice Etoile shopping centre and from there a pleasurable walk along Avenue Jean Medicin through Place Massena to the Plages, sorry beaches.
The Breakfast is decent with the usual selection of ham, cheeses, yogurts , cereals, pastries and pancakes. With a small selection of warm food of scrambled eggs and potatoes with bacon and sausages alternating days.
The staff were very friendly through the stay, throughout the hotel, and were able to lend an adaptor, which was very handy to charge phones. Only a small thing, but this can make a big difference to a holiday.
The bedroom was decently sized with a free safe, with plenty of sockets and a writing table, and both bedroom and the bathroom were very clean. There are 3 levels of storage in the cupboards. One thing about the upper storage space is that it is about 7 foot off the ground and not really usable, perhaps the shelf can be lowered a bit. The room on the 4th floor was pretty quiet overnight.
All in all, I would recommend this hotel, and if we were to come back to the beautiful city of Nice, would definitely consider coming back to the Ellington.
