“A relatively inexpensive choice in a popular destination”
Reviewed 19 January 2014

Though it might not be 4 stars worthy, this decent hotel, was comfortable, 3 blocks away from the Promenade des Americaine, across the street from a synagogue, and next to public transportation. Place was a bit old, and could use an uplift and refurbishing, but had all the basic amenities, wifi, and staff was pleasant, welcoming, and going out of their way to be helpful. There are lots of places to eat all around. Breakfast was reasonable. Be aware that if you want to eat in higher rated restaurants, you must book at least 2-3 days in advance.

Stayed here for 4 nights over New Year. We had a family room for three adults (third bed was a comfortable sofa bed) which was big enough to use a base with enough storage. The room itself was well appointed with a free safe and mini bar if you wanted it (very useful fridge in any case). Bathroom was good with slight niggles over 1. Glass shower door kept swinging outside the bath and had to be wedged with a towel and 2. the shower head kept slipping down the pole. However these were minor and did not overshadow what was a good room. We were on the third floor and at night you could hear outside in the road, and if this is likely to bother you perhaps go higher (did'nt bother us). The pool, jacuzzi and sauna were good and clean. Several gym machines on the side of the pool.

Hotel Location is excellent and everything in terms of shops / main sites / trams / buses, rail station were all accessible on foot. The quality of all the Hotel staff we met and the level of Customer Service provided was excellent at all times, they could not have been more helpful.The hotel only does breakfast (22 Euro each) and as we were on a budget we found cheaper options nearby in small Cafes and supermarkets (several nearby).

Couple of other useful tips:
There is an excellent cheap and efficient bus service from the Airport to Nice (Bus 98) which we used and was only 6 euros and cheaper than train and private transport. in fact the buses were excellent throughout our stay in Nice and were used on a number of occasions (Monaco was 3 euros return which was excellent value and very scenic and only took 3/4 hour - train was going to be 7.50 Euros return).

Monaco is very close and an interesting day out (changing of the guard at 1150).

Good walk to Ville France along the front (past the Port) and via some obvious steps (if you want) or carry along the main road. Ville France is very quaint and picturesque and well worth the walk if weather is nice (got the bus back).

Nice itself is a great walking City in any case and we found everyone to be friendly and helpful which had been a contrast to a previous French holiday and certainly wetted our appetite for more French trips. Try speaking some French, but most people we came across spoke English.

Used Nice Cycle Tours (Guide was Al Patel) and this Cycle tour is for all ages and fitness levels and highly recommended and suggest use early on in your trip to get your bearings and not miss out on the chance to returnn to the back streets / markets etc. - see separate Trip advisor review.
I had a bad experience at the Le Mirador Restuarant at Rue Massena and would not recommend it - see separate Trip Advisor review. However there is no shortage of restaurants but be guarded as we were warned that some try and take advantage of tourists (as the Le Mirador did) in also how items are ambiguously priced. In fairness we ate at several restaurants and only had the one bad experience.
In summary, absolutely loved Nice as a City and would certainly recommend the Hotel on the basis of its great location, pool and fantastic staff.

We chose this hotel because of a number of good recommendations on Tripadvisor, its central location and its swimming pool.

In many ways we were not dissappointed. The room was reasonably spacious with an adequate bathroom and furnished in a subdued contemporary design. (There was a makeover for the hotel in 2012.) The staff were uniformly pleasant and helpful and though they all spoke good English willingly allowed us to mangle their beautiful, precise language. Breakfast was satisfactory and could either be served in the rather small lounge bar or in a separate dining area. Room cleaning was scrupulous. Our room - 408 - fronted on to Rue Pastorelli but such was the efficiency of the double glazing that we were unaware of traffic noise. There were a variety of bars and restaurants close by and the area was well served with public transport including the excellent new tramway. There is a large pedestrianised shopping area a block away.

So far, so good. We do however have a few niggles. The wifi system is irritating to log into, which one has to do frequently. The room tub chair in the room is rather uncomfortably low - I remedied this with cushions from the bed. The pool is very small and shallow. The guest lounge area is very small. Aside from this the hotel is of a very acceptable standard.

Room Tip: Room 408 is ok

I think that this hotel, much like the area of Nice in which it is located, has been better days, with the result that things are not always cleaned up and are left lying around, particularly in the pool area, and that things which are broken are not attended to until brought to the staff's attention (I had to get them to change my room because the phone socket in the original room was not working).

The pool is too small for regular swimming, and I could see no evidence that it was cleaned.

The breakfasts were certainly not worth 22 Euros, and the dining area is cramped. To maintain the full four stars, I would have thought that a fully equipped and staffed restaurant was required.

The wi-fi is slow, and requires regular logons.

On the plus side, the staff were very helpful, and the rooms were cleaned regularly.

Dear guest,

First of all I would like to thank you for choosing Nice Riviera for your stay in Nice and having left a comment on this website.

Concerning the cleanliness of the wellness area, I have advised the general housekeeper about your remark because it's cleaned every morning before the opening and several times during the day, so I am a little bit surprised by your remark. Maybe you came a day when there was a lot of use and in-between two housekeeping's passage.

As a whole, Nice, France, is a beautiful city. This hotel made the stay even better.
I'll start with the bad first... The internet is fairly fast but you have to change the log in from 1-2 times a day which can be pretty annoying. The room was small for 3 people to stay in but we managed and we dealt well with it.
The location of this hotel is fabulous. It's a short walk from the center of town and right down the street from Subway and McDonalds, if you need a quick meal. Pretty much every thing is walking distance away.
Although the hallways smell kind of weird and they are a "green" hotel, so the lights go off after awhile in each place area, ...The rooms are nice and clean. I had no problem with the rooms at all.
The staff was helpful and nice. The maids were SO kind.
I would definitely recommend staying here if you come to Nice. The hotel is worth more than the value :)

Has a pool ,jacuzzi and sauna plus a few exercise machines. No meals but breakfast was excellent.

The location is optimal and lots of nearby restaurants to choose from so lack of hotel meals definitely not an issue. The "little train" tour is good value as you get to see all of central Nice including the old town and the chateau at the top of the overlooking mount.

I would also recommend getting the train to Monaco - One of the cheapest trips possible and yiu can even get off at one of the sea front towns on route.

We stayed at the Nice Riviera for 3 nights and had a very pleasant stay. We were greeted warmly upon our arrival and when we asked about places for dinner, drinks, etc, all of the staff within earshot were throwing out their suggestions. The rooms are small, but actually quite spacious for this part of Europe and I particularly liked that door separating the bedroom area from the bathroom/closet area. I also found the toiletries to be very fragrant and pleasant. My only complaint about the bathroom area is that the shower created quite a mess as there is only a half - door on the tub. Easy fix; just lay an extra towel on the floor to sop up the water. The rooms were very clean and I found the beds to be very comfortable! The room did get quite hot at night, despite us turning on the a/c, so we slept with the window open to allow some cool air in. The included breakfast was a huge plus and they had a nice variety of breads, pastries and also had eggs (although maybe instant), bacon, sausages, excellent fruit, yogurt, coffee, espresso ,etc. Considering the price of food in Nice, the included breakfast also adds a good value to the price of the hotel. I thoroughly enjoyed the breakfast! I also enjoyed using the pool, hot tub, and sauna.

The location was great also. It was less than a 10 minute walk to old town (nice bars, flower market, etc) and to the promenade on the beach, and a very lovely park with beautiful views of the city. There was also a Christmas market just a few blocks away that had neat crafts and snacks. of course, there is shopping in every direction from the hotel, so just take a turn and have your pick! It is not a beach front property, but very close. The price of parking was 19 euro a day, which is consistent with other lots in the area (we paid 18 for a garage a couple of blocks away) so if you have a car, plan to add a pretty large chunk to parking. It would be nice if there was a discount on parking for people staying at the hotel, but I suppose charging quite a bit for parking is just an industry standard, so can't fault the hotel for that.

Overall, it is worthy of an "excellent" rating based on the money I spent and the service and standards of the hotel. I would surely stay here again and would not hesitate to recommend it to friends.
