We needed a hotel near the centre of Nice with wheelchair access as my wife has little walking capability due to MS. I push her in a conventional wheelchair just about all the time on holiday. This hotel fitted the bill quite well. We took a taxi from the airport for about 35 euros. Access to the hotel from the pavement was good. A lift serves all rooms. The room was big enough, though not spacious (the receptionist did ask us to report back if it wasn't adequate & she'd move us to something more suitable). Ideally we'd have liked a bath with better access. Half the bath side had a fixed shower screen so only half the side was available for access (other rooms may be different) so it was a little tricky at times giving assistance, particularly when getting in. The breakfast room does have 3 steps, which we negotiated easily. Taking breakfast on the terrace would have involved a 2nd flight of 3 steps so we avoided that. Breakfast can be taken in your room. All the staff were friendly and helpful (not just to us). The view from the room window was of the breakfast terrace. A fridge was available in the room which was useful both for medication & fruit and drinks bought from supermarkets next door and directly across the road.
We travelled to Monaco on the train, but wheelchair assistance from the team at the station was essential as a lift was out of commission & without it we wouldn’t have got onto the very crowded train (people are nice in Nice, though the mob who get on the trains are something else – they do become nice again once they are on though). We also took the bus up to the Musee Matisse, where no assistance was necessary. Most of the rest of the centre is pretty flat and negotiable with a wheelchair apart from the Vieux Nice peak, which we took the mini train from the promenade. We are pleased we chose this hotel.
