Hotel Lafayette Nice

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 9 November 2012

We stayed at this central hotel in October. The room was a good size, spotlessly clean and pleasant. The bathroom was large and clean, good shower!! There was free wifi, which is always good. It was all in the location though, dead central in Nice.

There are hundreds of hotels in Nice and while many are beyond the budget of most tourists there are a good crop of comfortable places making Nice affordable.
Lafayette is very much one of these. If you choose on location this is a strong contender. Arriving by train it is about a 15 minute walk south and just 2 blocks from the Place Messena which is as central as you can ask. Set in a street of shops and restaurants its 17 rooms occupy the 1st floor above these and is topped with several floors of apartments. There are many restaurants in the Old Town just 10 minutes away and others closer if you don’t wish to walk.
Rooms are varied in occupancy but are comfortable with the amenities you would expect. Breakfast is simple continental style but enough variety to make a good start to the day. There is wi-fi on request, you are given a code to enter, which is helpful. Staff are helpful and will assist with travel needs so all in all for around 80 euros a night, modest for the area, it’s a good place to stay.

Excellent location. Hotel located on 1st floor and reached by 2 short flights of stairs, no lift so may be awkward for people with disability. Main door code for late night access when staff off duty. Rooms accessed by electronic card. Good sized room, with small balcony overlooking street. Free electronic safe. Comfortable beds and extra pillows in wardrobe if required. Bathroom - toilet, wash basin,shower & hair dryer - clean with hand towel & bathtowel per guest. Staff were very friendly and helpful & spoke good English. Breakfast available from 7.30 -10am,cost 10 euros and well worth it. Choice of 2 cereals, cold milk (hot milk on request), fruit juices, fruit, selection of teas, coffee, yogurts, cheeses, ham, bread rolls, sliced bread, eggs, butter, croissants, jams.Toaster & egg boiler available so eggs boiled to your requirement. Decor a bit worn, but overall good value for money and would definitely stay there again.

The location is fantastic. The airport bus stops at Opera and it is then a 5 minute walk along Rue Alberti to the hotel. It is also very close to the main square, Place Massena, to the shops and to the restaurant area. The hotel itself is quite small, 17 rooms on one floor. The entrance is through a glass door, with a flight of stairs then up to the reception and rooms area. The rooms are quite spacious, a double and single bed, with a small balcony overlooking the bustling street below. They are cleaned every afternoon, with new towels, shower gels, etc. The staff are very friendly and helpful on the desk. Free wifi in the hotel is excellent, the receptionist will give you a password. In all, no problems whatsover with this hotel. Great city centre location and great value. Would definitely recommend it.

A friend and I stayed here on the weekend and were delighted with the location, only a 5 min walk to the old town and we felt safe enough to walk there even at night (not on the backstreets). It's a 10-15 min walk to the train station and 15min cab from the airport, (35 euros). Our twin room was very spacious with a balcony overlooking the street and a safe in the room. Marcel at reception was very friendly and helpful with tips on places to visit and genuinely seemed to care that we had a good time. We didn't have a rate with breakfast as there are so many cafes in the old town to visit. Would recommend visiting a supermarket to buy water/soda etc as the vending machine in the hotel is very expensive.

I find this hotel a bit difficult to review because our first impression wasn't great. In general the hotel is a bit worn and is an unimpressive building. The beds were iffy and the pillows somewhat stiff. As our stay wore on however Hotel Lafayette endeared itself to us. The location certainly is excellent with easy walks to the beach, Place Massena/shopping, the ancient city where we ate, and the train station. The staff was very pleasant and helpful. We didn't try the breakfast because the area is rife with cafes. If you are looking for luxury or history look elsewhere but if you seek a great location with friendly staff at a good value stay here. My suggestion is to save some money on the room and spend it a the beach on a chaise and an umbrella and go parasailing.
