Ibis Budget Nice Californie Lenval
Ranked #86 of 204 Hotels in Nice
Reviewed 22 May 2014

I just stayed there with my family(2 Adults and 2 Kids,age 10 & 5) from 16th May to 20th May.The location is excellent,2 mins from the promenade.It takes 30 minutes to walk to the old town,which is fantastic.Travel to Monaco & Cannes is easy and affordable,1.50 Euro/person.For the cost,it is a great value stay,keeping into mind that Nice is a costly place to stay.Staff is also very good and helpful.No idea about breakfast,since did not opt for the same.

It was the first time we got disappointed with ibis. Being the ibis fans, we were really upset with this one. The hotel is old, the rooms desperately need renovation. The furniture is dated, the toilets are alike public WCs. There's mold in the shower. No soundproofing at all. You can hear the traffic (on the both sides of the hotel) and every move of your neighbours. Who are in general rather young and loud. I regret booking this hotel. This one should not be called ibis, it absolutely doesn't live up to standards of ibis.

We stayed here for 3 nights in May. It is located on the road parallel to promenade des anglais and the beach is just 3-4 minutes walk. Some rooms offer partial sea views and we were lucky to get one. for the price i paid, this sea view was very good for me. The place offers decent rooms, clean with basic facilities, bus stops are right outside the hotel to go to airport or city centre.The staff was cordial too.

One of the biggest disadvantage of this place is its distance from the main tourist attractions(that is, apart from beach, if anything else attracts you). We arrived on Labour day, and as you would expect in France, everything was closed, including public transport. We had to pay a very huge taxi fare to get to the hotel. From the hotel, places like Place Massenna or other areas of interest are a good 30 minutes walk along promenade des anglais. You will not mind walking the first time, but in the late evening, when you are tired, the walk can prove a bit too much. Also, the public transport shuts down pretty early(around 9pm) in Nice.. so it can be a bit hard to get back to the hotel.
And since this place is not at the heart of things, we could not buy the pack of ten tickets for bus and trams(no vending machines for 4-5 kms of this hotel). The pack of 10 tickets would have helped us save some money on travel, but we had to buy one way tickets from the bus, everytime we boarded :(

Book this place if you are on budget, and don't mind walking.

It is ideally located between the airport and city centre. The rooms are OK, one gets what they pay for. The rooms need refurbishment. The room was not aired so smelt bad. The receptionist was kind to give a sea view room, over all ok for 2 nights stay if you do not want to spend too much. WIFI was alright.
Bus 23 was a blessing, from the airport to the hotel and into the city, bus stop just outside the hotel.

Room Tip: 411 sea view but smells damp

We stayed one night; for the rate that we paid the room that we got was very good; the bed was very comfy and the room and all sheets, towels etc. were clean, and the room benefitted from air conditioning and free wi-fi (which was fast enough for web browsing, etc - not usually the case with free wi-fi). the staff were also very friendly and helpful.

I didn't realise that there wouldn't be a hairdryer available, that was an annoyance; also no shampoos provided, and only one towel each (no hand towel). If you go knowing these things and prepared for it then it's no problem.

The location is great, served by regular buses to and from the airport and town; bus 23 is EUR 1,50 each from T1 - take this rather than the more expensive bus 98&99 which cost EUR 6,50. You can walk into town (25 mins) and it's a nice walk along the beach promenade. Couldn't fault the location, a 2 min walk from the beach. We had a brilliant time in Nice - didn't spend much time in the hotel, and so for this the room and rate that we got was perfect.
