Best Western Hotel Roosevelt
Ranked #68 of 203 Hotels in Nice
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 19 March 2013

Stayed there for three nights over an extended weekend in March (stay three, pay two nights). Hotel is very centrally located but quiet nevertheless (close to shopping area, Place de Massena and the beach front) and very well maintained - very helpful staff. Rooms are good sized with nice bathrooms and amneties (we had a baby cot, baby bath tub etc.) - all one needs for a reasonable price. Breakfast was great for just 12 EUR per person (fresh juice, eggs, baguette, croissant etc.). Really, really good value for money - minor downside is the very small elevator (our pram just about fitted in with one person squeezing in) ;-)

Hello and a big THANK YOU for your review!
i am so glad that you had a nice stay with us considering the terrible weather and the pouring rain during your stay !!!
sorry about the lift as it is true that it is a bit small, specially with a baby cart.
kind regards

Friendly and helpful staff. Modern decor. Well planned lobby and breakfast room with a computer and printer available. A location within walking distance of the old city and promenade des Anglais. Excellent breakfast. The room we had ( a double) was adequate in size and the beds comfortable. Any street noise was dampened by sound proofing windows. The only improvement that we can suggest is the bedside lamps- they really are inadequate for reading- but this is an issue common to most hotels. Does no one check these out before they are installed? Price is very reasonable.

Pros
Great location, decent-sized rooms, comfortable bed. The lobby is bright and clean - a nice place to work from your laptop (once breakfast has ended) if you are so inclined. The breakfast is good compared to other places. Unlike another reviewer's experience, there were coffee and juice machines during breakfast, including one where you could make your own freshly-squeezed orange juice. The breads and croissants are sourced that morning from a nearby bakery, so they are certainly good. I liked that they had œufs à la coque and deli meats, for those who like a heartier breakfast than pain au chocolat. The staff were friendly.

Cons
We had some problems staying connected to the WiFi. Our room's bolt didn't really bolt. The door locked on its own, but it's reassuring to have the extra lock. The drains (sink and shower) were slow and seemed partially blocked. On the second day, we both had an allergic/asthmatic reaction to the hotel room after it was cleaned. I don't know what the staff did but it felt like they used intense chemicals or just stirred up a lot of dust. We both developed sore throats, itchy eyes, etc - to the point that I couldn't even wear my contacts in the room. We know it was specific to the room because once out of the hotel, I was able to put in my contacts again and felt better, only to have the symptoms reappear upon our return. If you are similarly sensitive to the use of harsh chemicals or the presence of dust, I would recommend that you stay elsewhere.

hello and thank you for your comment on tripadvisor and thank you for the "pros" !
here a some explanations about the "cons" :
i have set our wifi system (brand new!) so that connections are disconnected every 3 hours to avoid guest loading films on the internet. if 20 guest do the same at the same time, there will be a slow connection for everybody. so sorry for the inconvenience.
i have asked our maintenance man to check on the drain.
our room locks have a system to double lock. i have checked your room and it works fine.
i do not understand your allergy problem. we never had a similar problem the last 13 years i have run this hotel. our cleaning products are the same, i do not understand.
best regards

Hello and thank you so much for your review.
I loved to read " I got a complimentary upgrade without even requesting one!" because this is exactly what the reception staff is asked to do when we can obviously.
I am so pleased when someone notice all the efforts the reception staff do to please them. thank you to all of them.
Thank you again

I chose to stay here and commute each day to Monaco by train because the hotels are a lot cheaper than Monaco. I did find the commute hard work - the trains were crowded and often late in the morning. There is very little parking in Monaco so most people travel by train.

I did not sample the breakfasts because of my early start. There seemed to be some refurbishment work going on and they did not appear to be even serving it the day I left. This would have annoyed me if I had actually wanted breakfast.

The staff were always very pleasant and helpful. I had a fantastic meal at the small restaurant they recommended in the next street.

I has a room on the back. Whilst there was no view I like quiet rooms so this suited me.

Very good location, room was very small and looked out over the back of the hotel. It was very clean however. There is a lift but it is very small.
Parking is close enough at the Vinci parking station.
Breakfast had no coffee and no juice. We went elsewhere, dont have breakfast here.

hello and thank you for your comment.
you are right about the lift : i would love it to be bigger but it is unfortunately not possible.
we are also very happy about our cleaning staff as we have not had a cleaning problem for years now. it is a very difficult job and i thank them for that.
the size of our rooms are in average 30% larger than required by the new (2013) three star regulation in france but i understand that they might be seen small compared to rooms in the US for ex.
what i cannot understand in your comment is the lack of coffee and fruit juice for breakfast : we serve free coffee 24h hours a day at the breakfast room and we have fresh orange juice, regular orange juice, apple juice and grapefruit juice daily at breakfast. maybe, on that day, we were missing one of theses juices, but i doubt that all four were missing ! i also doubt that there was no coffee for breakfast !!!
anyway, please make sure you contact me direct next time, and i will make sure we give you a family room so you can enjoy your stay.
best regards

Lovely room with balcony. Very clean.
Hotel was on a busy street but could not hear any noise in room.
Receptionists spoke good English
10 minute walk from beach and right in the heart of the city.
Really pleased with our stay and will definitely return.
Taxi cost us €30 from airport. We got the bus back to airport and was a lot cheaper and the bus stop was a couple of minutes walk from hotel however bus was hot, packed and could barely move.
