Reviewed 9 April 2013

Booked this hotel for a w/e break with my wife on the basis it was just 3 minutes from the Place Messena which is easily reached from the 98 bus from the airport or the tram from the SNCF Station. Its a relatively small hotel which makes it quite homely and welcoming. It is located on the first floor of a multi-tenanted building with no lift access that I could see so this could be a problem for someone with a mobility problem. Breakfast French style was available at 10 euros p.p. but we chose to eat out so cannot comment on quantity or quality. As had been said by others the rooms were a good size and very clean with daily maid service. WiFi was good and free along with 2 free desktops for guest use. All in all a pleasant, friendly well located hotel ideal for exploring Nice and beyond. Beyond Nice we went by train to Menton which was an old fishing village but is now a more modern sea side town with a lovely atmosphere, a pleasant mix of old and new. Take the Ventimiglia train from Nice, takes about 35 minutes and cost 10 euros return per person. Walk due south on arrival and then turn left when you reach the promenade and enjoy the beach and views,

This hotel is in a great location , being just a couple of blocks from the City's main plaza , a short walk from all the shops and restaurants of Old Town, and a couple of minutes from the train station by trolley. While the hotel exterior is rather ordinary, our room was spacious and had everything we needed. The owners are very pleasant and helpful. It offers value for the money. We throughly enjoyed our two nights here and would recommend it.

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.
