Hotel Lafayette Nice

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 14 September 2011

This lovely small and friendly hotel is located right off Place Massena and so it is in the heart of Nice and is accessable to every where. The tram runs up and down Jean Medecin and is just a block from the hotel. This tram will take you to the bus station, the train station, shopping etc.

Within walking distance of the hotel is the beach, the Promenade des Englaise, the beaches, the shops including the Gallery LaFayette.
The hotel itself is exceptionally clean and well cared for. The staff is friendly and helpful.
Breakfast is 10 Euros but it is worth it because it includes, yoghurt, eggs, toast, croissants, meat, cheese, cereal and coffee. To get this anywhere else would cost far more than 10 Euros.

Our room was large with two double beds and a large bathroom that included a tub. What more could one ask for.

People with disabilities need to know that there is no elevator to the first level of the hotel where the rooms are. This is the only negative.

Other than that, a five star hotel in my books.

Room Tip: Be sure to ask for the type of room you want. I specified a bathtub and got it. I specified two be...

Don't try to check in during rush hour like we did...this is in a busy part of the city! It's a nice hotel and everything is within walking distance, and you're close to a bus stop (which we didn't try, but it only 1 euro to ride, even to Monaco). We parked at one of the 3 parking spots that the Hotel has in an underground parking lot around the corner. Ask to reserve a spot if you have a car because they are limited. Breakfast was okay, but we figured it would be better than hitting the streets and fending for ourselves. Friendly staff, alright accomodations, updated bathrooms, GREAT wifi signal, and good location. Would stay here again!

Room Tip: Ask to stay in a room that doesn't face the road

My daughter and I have just returned from a 3 day break in the south of France and our base was the Hotel Lafayette in Nice. We found the hotel to be welcoming, clean and fresh with friendly and very helpful staff. It is small but compact. The bedrooms are all air conditioned, roomy and serviced daily. There are tea making facilities,a hairdryer, a safe and free wireless internet conection - what more could we want?!! More importantly, the situation is perfect - a 2 min walk to the tram (from which you can access the bus and train station) - 2 mins to the fabulous and bustling shopping centre / retaurants - 3 mins to the beach and a 6/7 min walk to the old town - perfect! Whilst in the old part, a must is a meal in the restaurant 'La Favola' (13 cours saleya). The food is fabulous and so reasonable. We had to queue (Sat night) but it was SO worth it!
Breakfast in the hotel was an extra 10 euros per day - we decided against this as our own preference was to to get out early and breakfast later, so I can't comment on the value of this.
We wouldn't hesitate to recommend this hotel to anyone who wanted a good base to explore this luxurious coastline!

I visited Nice in the springtime with family. Nice is of course full of wonderful hotels but this time we were looking for best value. The Lafayette Nice provided decent value. The hotel is cosy and small, a bit worn out but clean, safe and peaceful. The staff was very friendly and made us feel welcome which is so important.
Well located with a walking distance to all the wonderful breakfast cafes, the beach promenade, the shops, the restaurants and the market. The tram - my favourite form of easy transportation in cities - is very nearby.
In Nice you can easily enjoy yourself even if the hotel is not that luxurious - however, on my next trip to Nice I might look for a luxury hotel for a great luxurious French escape!

As usual, before we book a hotel, we check with trip advisor reviews. In this case we were dissapointed at the standard of this 'hotel'. We thought the room was quite dirty and not very clean at all. We also found ants on the dressing table next to the tea and coffee. We also think we were either bitten in bed by bed bugs or ants. My husband took the 10euros breakfast and I didn't.
We wouldn't recommend this hotel to anyone. The only advantage that we can say is that it is pretty central

The hotel is very good. We stayed there for several days and were very happy with the choice. The room was very big, with 2 double beds and enough space to accommodate up to 4 people. I m not sure if it was a standard room. Perhaps they just ran out of standard doubles and had to give this room to 2 people. In any case we were very pleased. Pleasant and helpful staff. Fresh towels every day. Immaculately clean bathroom. Safe deposit box in the room free of charge. Beds were really comfortable! There was a PC in the lobby for all guests to use, again no charge. A bit of noise from the street, but not much though to really disturb your sleep (except for the Saturday night, but hey, it s a Saturday night in a late night city! Superb location! 3 minutes to get to the old town and 5 min to walk to the nearest beach. We did not have breakfast, so I can not comment on breakfast at the Lafayette. I d recommend this hotel with no hesitation.
