We were very warmly greeted at the Star Hotel in Nice, France, after a rather hellish day of travel. I booked this hotel through Expedia because the price was right and it got pretty good reviews. Though we booked a double room, we were given a triple on the top floor. Though there is no elevator and it was a hike to get to our room, once we were there, we were pleasantly surprised. Our room was very large and had a cute little balcony that looked out over the street.

The beds were comfortable and I had no trouble sleeping. The bathroom appeared to be recently renovated and had a huge shower. There was a flatscreen television and WiFi is free and works fine.

Breakfast is not included in the room rate, but it's generous and one can order a la carte if they'd rather not get the "all you can eat" rate. I noticed one guest had laundry done. I mentioned that I was ready for wine and the clerk said if we needed wine glasses or a wine tool, she had them available to borrow. I think they also offered plug converters for rent. Very handy!

One thing I noticed in the Star Hotel is that there are some rules that some people might find odd. For instance, there's a sign on the door that warns that if you smoke or leave something stinky in the room, you'll be charged 30 euros. Also, in the welcome book, it says you're not allowed to eat in your room. We did ask the front desk lady about that and she said that the book was made when the hotel was owned by someone else. Eating is permissible, but they do ask that you're not a slob about it. She thanked us for being considerate and asking.

Star Hotel is not too far from the train station. It's close to a mall and there are plenty of restaurants and shopping venues nearby. The beach is maybe a twenty minute walk and during high season, towels and parasols are available.

I would recommend the Star Hotel. I think it's a very good value.

Room Tip: Loved the little balcony in Room 33.

Great value for money location to explore Nice, as it is within walking distance of most attractions. Friendly and helpful staff made our stay very pleasant. Not too far from the public parking area, which is convenient (although expensive) if you have a car. There are quite a few restaurants close to the hotel. Breakfast was fine and the WiFi worked well. A good find and worth recommending - thanks to TripAdvisor.

Room Tip: Stay in room number 10 - it is close to reception if you have lots of luggage.

My family and I stayed here a couple of nights in April. Wonderful hotel and a great staff. They helped us find places to go and recommended things we might be interested in. Short walk to main shopping streets and of course the promenade. Say hi to the lovely Shirley if you go!

Found this little hideout from Tripadvisor and stayed here for two nights from 24th to 26th April while on trip with my family.We were welcomed by the friendly receptionist Freida and she also helped us plan our walking trip to old Nice. No elevator is a problem but we knew about it before comming so we were prepared to carry our luggage to our room. The room was simple and basic but the bathroom was very clean and we were lucky to have a little balcony overlooking the street.Location wise it is a 10 min walk both from the station and also from Old Nice.Situated close to the main road with a lot of shops and restaurants around,not to mention the supermarket at the corner. Breakfast spread was enough to fill one up.They also have a bookcase full of books which you can enjoy during the stay. Loved the hospitality. Thankyou for making our stay comfortable.

This is a very pleasant place to stay hiding behind a shabby street front.
It is a seven minute walk from the station is you pick the correct route, the one with the tram tracks.
The room was small and suited the purpose of this trip. The en suite area is compact but has good hot water and everything looks fresh and works.
The bed was simple but I slept well.
The wifi is good and appears secure.
The room has a safe in it which is big enough for a netbook or an ipad.
There is a great restaurant just along the street and a supermarket on the corner.
Staff are always available and friendly.

Stayed here for 6 Nights while going to watch tennis at Monte Carlo. Ideal location for getting the train and close to reasonable places to eat etc. Room was small, but this did not matter as all we did was sleep there. Very clean and bed was good as was toilet/shower. This was a very good hotel for price, staff where very welcoming and very helpful..

We stayed for 4 nights in April 2014. While the rooms are a bit small, and can get a bit stuffy (the cooler did not work in room 26), they are still fine for a 2 star hotel. However, the price is good, the location is very good, and the service is extremely friendly and helpful.

Room Tip: The cooler in room 26 did not work, and it got quite noisy if you opened the window.
