Reviewed 4 October 2011

Based on reviews of other two-star hotels on this site, we chose Hotel Star for a 4-day stay and this was by far the best place we stayed at while in France. It didn't matter who was at the front desk, they couldn't be more genuinely helpful and friendly. They treated all guests this way and nothing was ever too much.

They gave us wonderful advice on things to see and do and day trips to take and even helped us book another tour when the first one got cancelled (the tour they recommended, BTW, was excellent and it cost less than the original one we'd booked!).

The breakfast that was offered was AMAZING and at a really reasonable price. And the breakfast room was available to use at any other time of the day and we took advantage and brought our own supper and lunch in a couple of times and used their dishes. At one of those meals, the clerk came in and turned the fan on (the temperature had risen quite a bit that day) and reminded us that leftovers could be left in the fridge anytime.

From the availability of a computer to access the internet, to guide books available to borrow, to the library of books left by other guests and the daily French newspaper, to the towels for use on the beach, to the A/C in the room ... we couldn't have asked for more. Well, maybe an elevator to lug our stuff up to our room, but hey, they offered to help carry it up if we needed.

We arrived as guests and felt like we left as friends.

This is the second time I've stopped at the Star Hotel in Nice. The location is ideal 5 mins from the main station and a 10 min walk to the main square. The hotel is quite small and the rooms are standard. The best feature is the location.

A good small hotel - staff were very helpful and no real major faults.

Room was fairly spacious and clean. Decor and general feel to the place was a bit basic - but reflected in the price.

Probably should rate somewhere between average and very good - but no overall rating for just 'good'!

Stayed 4 nites in early Sept. Very good location, close to food, shopping, Place Massena and the Promenade/ beach.
Clean room, not fancy, but fine. A very friendly helpful staff.
The beach is about an 8 minute walk, you can buy food to take, a half block from the hotel.
Would stay again and recommend it.

Location is within easy walking distance to main attractions in Nice and to train station (which is where we got the airport shuttle and train to Monaco). Staff are what make the hotel. Alfredo was very helpful and provided us with suggestions on places to eat, what to see in our 3 days and how to get around. Paid breakfast was good, but we didn't always know the night before when they wanted confirmation whether we were going to eat there. Our air conditioning didn't work and there wasn't much they could do to fix it. They did loan us a fan though.

Room Tip: Rooms with balconies are smaller then the ones at the back. But, the ones at the back have to occasi...

Stayed here for 4 nights with my mom and we were really happy with the hotel. The staff were very nice and helpful. The room was simple, nothing exciting, but it was exactly what we needed as we didn't plan to spend a lot of time in our hotel room. We didn't get the breakfast there ( from what we saw it wasnt worth it, just bread coffee and juice) and there were plenty of places within walking distance. Overall a great location!! Could walk to train station, beach, center of town, really everywhere! The hotel also provided free towels to use at the beach which was nice.

The location was good, staff were wonderful,. room clean but it all needs updating. No lift needs noting as we were on third floor for two weeks and though they carried our cases up.. 60 stairs to get to breakfast, up and down 3 times a day was hard going for mature couple. No shelves for clothes, one small wardrobe with no other space for clothes so they had to remain in suite cases. (Which had to be left on the spare bed as there was no space for them on the floor) Only a small room and tiny bathroom worst of all with shower curtain not screen. Value for money in Nice, but expensive for a two star hotel.
