“Great hotel in Nice”
Reviewed 23 September 2013

Good location, easy to walk to the beach (well the pebbles) and the shops, and the old town. The room was small, but clean. We got a special deal and had breakfast for 1 euro...a bargain! The staff are very helpful and speak great English. I asked for more pillows but there wasn't any...I know the hotel was quite full. Would recommend this hotel

Room Tip: You can have a balcony or be on the quiet side

I spent 5 nights at this hotel in September. The room was small, but well thought out. There was a mini bar fridge, but if did not stay cold during the day when I was gone because the room key needs to be used to have electricity in the room. That was disappointing so I did not really use the fridge while there.

Bathroom was nice and there was a big shower with shower curtain. Shampoo, bath gel, soaps provided and replenished.

My only complaint with the room was that the bed was extremely uncomfortable. Maybe it needed a new mattress because it felt like I was sleeping in a hole. I tried sleeping on the other side of the bed, but it sloped down to the "hole". There was also only 1 pillow provided, but since I brought a pillow with me, I did not ask for another one.

The front desk staff were excellent and called to confirm several excursions I had booked. Lauranne at the gront desk was extremely nice and printed out boarding passes for the trip home. Also made reservations for a shuttle to airport.

Althought the hotel breakfast buffet was 12 euros, it was worth it. Eggs, pancakes, tarts, cheese, cereal - it had it all.

Finally, the location of this hotel is great. A 2 block walk to the Promenade des Anglais, close to the tram and shopping and only about an 8 minute walk to old Nice.

If it weren't for the uncomfortable bed, I would definately stay here again.

The staff was great, very helpful and friend. The room was clean and comfortable. The room was tight, but not small by French standards. Great location; walking distance to everything. We did not try the breakfast.

We stayed here for a week in mid-August. The hotel is good, -comfortable beds, nice bathroom and within walking distance to Gare de Nice-Ville (train station) to other cities, however as we booked in last minute it was more expensive than it was worth. If you book in advance and you are without a car, this hotel is convenient. There is no complimentary breakfast, but there are many 'boulangeries' around and we went to a different place each time. We used to get up early and head to the train station for Cannes, Antibes, Monaco (Monte Carlo), St. Raphael (for St. Tropez), Ville-franche-sur-mer (great beach), Eze and come back to hotel midnight. So we really did not need our hotel to be fancy. What I will do next time is to hire a car and go to Nice in June or early September as there is heavy traffic everywhere in July-August. And then book in a hotel which is 'less in the middle of everywhere' but has a free parking space so that you can enjoy the French Riviera more without being in worry to catch up a train and check their time schedules. It is very close to Promenade des Anglais and you can easily walk to the hotel after the airport bus(probably#98) drops you in this street near le Meridienne Hotel.

Hello and thank you for your comments
it is true that choosing a hotel really in the centre of everything has many advantages but not all!!! parking can be a problem. it is also true that there are less expensive hotels further from the city center were morgages are much less expensive. which internet, one can really have the choice.
thank you anyway to have chosen the roosevelt and we do hope to see you again.
best regards

stayed at this hotel for 5 nights on a room only basis. It is very central and in an upmarket area, within walking distance of the railway station, promenade, old town and port. The staff were very nice and helpful. The only problem was that on one night we had a call from reception saying that there was a lot of noise coming from our room. The only noise was of us talking and the television on. I told the night porter this and next minute there was a ferocious bang on the wall followed by an even louder bang on the bedroom door. This really startled us to the extent that we ended up whispering. May I add that neither of us had consumed alcohol. This has never happened to us before and we are travelling a long time, both of us being in our late sixties. All I could think of was that the walls must be paper thin and I don't want to have to whisper when I am paying good money on decent accommodation. Just as well it happened on our last night as it was so threatening I would have moved out.

Room Tip: ask for a noise proof room!

Hello and thank you for taking time to write a review.
i am pleased that you seemed to like the roosevelt although you had a problem with another room.
it is try that we had a call from another room complaining about noise coming from your room. they might have mistaken but, in cases like this, our procedure is that we call the room to have the noise stopped. this has nothing to do with the walls or anything. it happens in every hotel that a room is very noisy and disturbs the other rooms.
sorry that they thought it was your room and that we called you, but our staff is there so our guest have a good sleep.
best regards

spend 7 nights here,very good and friendly staff,best breakfast we ever have it,only cost us 1 euro for breakfast per person as we book that time it have the offer.Location it great closed to the town,couple minuts away to beach,very thing within reach.
one problem is the bed,the hotel using akind of plastic fitting sheet to cover up mattess,as you sleep on it ,it does make noise as you like me does moving a lot during the night,I do understand the hotel try to protect their mattess but surely it can find other than the plastic fiiting sheet,
it just like you sleep on plastic bag really.
we have to took that plastic cover off the mattess every night ,and put the flat sheet on it before we have agood night sleep.be aware of the.

Thank you so much for saying that you had a nice stay at the roosevelt.
you are right that we have these "plastic" sheets on every mattress to protect them for better hygiene. but i will really look into what you complained about because if it is true, i have to change them all for better quality.
thank you for bringing this matter to my attention.

This place is halfway between the train station and the beach. If you're watching your budget and don't mind walking, it means you can save a few bucks and walk there from the station. The price was reasonable and they graciously put us in a quiet room. The elevator is exceedingly small. So, we only used it for luggage transport to/from our room. They have a secure room you can put your bags in until check-in. The breakfast is actually really good compared to many others. Someone else mentioned flooding in the bathroom. Yes, I can see this happening, but you can easily prevent this by being conscious of it when your are showering. The bathroom was clean and a good size. The AC worked well. The staff were friendly and helpful. I would definitely recommend.

Room Tip: Request a room on the back of the hotel.
