Stayed at the hotel from 06 June 2009 for seven nights, on arrival went to room, as we asked on original booking for twin beds we were faced with a doiuble bed and a sofa bed, Hotel said that they do not do twin beds in superior rooms only in exective, they asked if we had booked Twin Beds we said yes they upgraded us straight away at no additional costs. Word of caution if booking with Thomas Cook online the only rooms at this hotel are exective and not the superior rooms. Could not fault the Hotel Staff were frindly at all times indoor swimming pool was big enough for a swim and sauna was switched on if you asked, one word of caution when entering the jaquzzi there is no handrials so be careful as the steps get slippery as my wife found out and fell into tub luckliy I caught her.
Room service was excellent.
They do not have any facilties for making a cup of Tea or coffee in rooms and they charge extra for safe deposit boxes.
Those having breakfats should not be dissapointed thjey seem to have allowed for visits from all parts of the world I enjoyed Pancakes every morning, and my wife said how much she enjyed her Ham and French Tomatoes every morning.
Hotel has two lifts with a garage below road level great if you travel there by car. Only 10 minutes from SNCF Gard De Nice Ville and only 5 minutes from beach.
They have a market quite close to the Hotel which served a varaity of chesses and fruits for that period of the vyear cherries were great.
You have to look for bargins when eating out some places charge you as much as 7 euros for a pint of larger during our stay we found the cheaper place top eat was near the station area and not near the beach.
Monaco is only a Bus or train ride away and Vintemille (Italy) just a few miles from Monaco just over the Border they as well have a Market Tuesday was the day we went as well.
Also took a trip to Cuneo (Italy) in Alps great train ride with great views the alps in some area's still had snow on the mountain tops.
Went for great walks along sea front during days and nights great to watch Planes coming in over the Bay to Land at Nice Airport.
Plenty of Casion's around for those who want hem but we stayed well clear, not interested in gambling.
The Tram system in Nice is clean and well run word of note you can buy tickets for a single run lasts around 74 minutes and costs 1 euro you must Validez your ticket either on the platform or on the train if you do not hen you will be fined. there is also a ticket for 2 Euros which lasts all day and you must Validez this as well on your first journey.
The Hotel is opposite a Jewish Synagoge and we was pleased to see a tradittional wedding taking place during our stay.
All in all a great Hotel and saty I would recommed this to any person the only down side was the carpets were a little stained and needed either cleaning or changing.
