“Budget but adequate”
Reviewed 14 March 2010

Stayed in October 2009, based on reviews from tripadvisor. About a 20 minute walk from the bus station after catching a bus from the airport. Husband and wife owners were friendly and very helpful with information. We were surpirsed taht there were a number of studenst staying, felt a bit like a hostel, but fortunately they did not disturb us too much. The room was basic, but had the necessities, including a kitchenette. One concern was that the tiled floor was dirty, and didn't seem to be cleaned during our 3 night stay. Handy to supermarket, boulangerie for breakfast, bus to Monaco & Eze, but a good 20 minute walk into the old part of Nice, a little further than we had anticipated.

I had a wonderful stay at the Clair Hotel in Nice for two weeks in May 2009. I was in a very clean studio room, which allowed me to prepare breakfast and small meals for myself during the times I was not "out and about"--and the price was great for a budget-conscious traveller. There were grocery stores and cafes nearby. The location was convenient for walking to the port, Vieux Nice, the bus station and the train station. As a woman travelling alone, I felt very safe staying at the Hotel--the rooms face an inner courtyard and the area is accessed through a door at street level which is always kept locked. The courtyard itself was a great setting for sipping coffee or wine, reading a book, checking email or just relaxing after a long day of playing tourist. To top it all off, the owners were wonderful--very friendly, gracious and helpful. If I am ever in Nice again, I will most certainly stay at the Clair Hotel.

The owners are more than friendly. The location unique to see Nice, Monaco, Cann. The owners made our stay an amazing experience giving information about things we had to see and things we had to do. It is the second time we stayed in this hotel. We also visited last year.

Very comfortable beds, spotlessly clean room with kitchen area including fridge, kettle & microwave, leading onto quiet, pretty garden area. Our hosts were full of tips to make our stay more enjoyable, providing glasses, crockery, hairdryers & even shampoo on request. Within walking distance of buses, train station, port & the old town. Supermarket & boulangerie 5mins walk, so enjoyed leisurely breakfasts and the occasional supper in the garden (helped to keep the costs down) Bicycle hire ideal to explore the local area, very flat.

We stayed one night at the Hotel Clair - from the reviews we weren't expecting anything fancy - which was ok with us. However, we noticed that everything is very, very old including the bed - much too old and very used. Also, under the bed sheets there was a plastic sheet - which I detest - not nice feeling when you get into bed. Also, I was wondering whether or not the sheets were even changed before our arrival, as we found some other guests camera at the head of the bed - between the wall and the bed, which if you change the sheets the camera should have been found before our arrival - I'm just saying...

We wanted to have a glass of wine and enjoy the lovely garden - but the kitchen had nohing in it - not even one glass!

On a postivie note - the place is very quiet and it's very close to the Port.

I think this Hotel is really more like a Hostel - it's ok for one night if you can't find anything else, but I wouldn't recommend it - I really wanted to like this place as the reviews were favorable and the owners seem nice enough.

We've just returned from a wonderful holiday to Nice staying at the Clair Hotel. Esther and Luba were excellent hosts with lots of useful information about the area. The location of the hotel is ideal,being a short walk from the Port and about ten minutes from the Old Town. The bus to Monte Carlo can be caught at the Port and is only 1 Euro each way, as is the fare to Cannes(from the bus station) however this can take up to 2 hours(quicker on the train at 6 Euros each way). We went on the bus and returned on the train! All in all a lovely holiday. Colin and Helena.

Our stay at the Clair Hotel in Nice was most enjoyable. We found the location to be close to all amenities in a quiet location. Our hosts Esther and Luba were extremely welcoming and friendly. Anything we needed to know we only had to ask. We would recommend the Clair Hotel to our friends and family and if we return to Nice again we will definitely stay there.
