Reviewed 18 September 2012

Had a short but very pleasant stay here, located in a very handy part of town as everything is within walking distance. The staff were very helpful, the breakfast good the beds comfy and the bathroom the best of our trip after staying in 14 other "3 Star" hotels. Rooms are small as previously described but enough for two people to be comfortable. Will be back again.

The hotel has a central location, allowing easy access to the center and to the beach.
Our room was tiny but with all the comfort needed for our short stay. The hotel does not have its own parking, but in front of the hotel there is the entrance to a paying parking (13 euro per night).

We stayed 3 nights in August and cannot complain about the hotel or it's location. Yes the room was compact, but it had everything we needed - bathroom with toilettries, (free) in room safe, TV, tea/coffee making facilities and a complimentary small bottle of wine !. All the staff we encountered were fantastic, very helpful and always polite. The room rate included breakfast and this was more than adequate. Tea/coffee, juice (fresh option if you want to squeeze your own oranges), meats, cheeses, fruit, cereal, toast, yoghurt, hot sausages and boiled eggs along with the usual selction of french pastries and jams. The location is fantastic, 10 mins from the main railway station (where the airport bus arrives/departs from - €4 each way) and 5 mins from a tram stop. Old town is 10 minutes walk and the Promenade is about 15 minutes walk. we took the number 100 bus to Monaco - 1 hour trip for a €1 (absolute bargain seeing a small beer can be €8 !). The view from the old castle gardens above the city is also worth a trip (NB: those in the know take the lift rather than the stairs - lift is free). Not sure we'd vist Nice again as we feel we've seen all it has to offer, but if we did - we'd stay here.

after reading the many reviews on trip advisor, we booked the Hotel Boreal for four nights this past July. Family of three with teenage son. Firstly.....ideal location. Right off the main pedestrian walk. Short 7 min walk to the train station or 10 min walk to the beach. Lovely boutique hotel with such friendly desk staff. Clean spacious triple room with AIRCONDITIONING!! (a must in the summer in the south of France). A little patio out front to sip your wine and people watch in the evening. We never had the buffet breakfast as there were tons of restaurants in the immediate vicinity (plus Mcdonalds is right around the corner!) Parents will love that feature! I always felt safe in the evenings. If you want a budget accomodation in the center of Nice.....stop looking and book this one!

I stayed there last week and booked two rooms. The rooms are tiny, great location, just 10 - 15 minutes walk to the beach and all the shopping. The rooms are so clean, very tiny and clean. The beds are so comfortable and the bathroom clean and nicely sized. The staff was amazingly friendly and helpful and the hotel was extremely convenient.

I would definitely go back

Room Tip: close to the tram and railway station

The room was compact but clean, with some nice touches. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was fine, and the fresh orange juice was very nice. The hotel was easy to find and within walking distance of all of the main tourist attractions. We would definitely stay there again.

The room we had was very small, small as in we can't find room for our suit cases. Free wi-fi which is a positive. Breakfast was not good, just bread and cold meats and cheese. Staff were friendly. Location is the big positive for this hotel as shopping center is just at the end of the street and place macena and promenade is just couple of minutes walk. I would recommend this hotel if youre only staying for a couple of nights.
