Hotel Boreal
Ranked #48 of 203 Hotels in Nice
Reviewed 2 November 2012

I have recently come back from Nice where we stayed at the Boreal Hotel.I found the staff very pleasant and helpful. The room was small but clean and comfortable, only bad point being the lumpy bed which we should have complained about when we were there. Its in a great location with lots of places to eat and drink nearby particulary like the patisserie opposite the hotel. Had a great pizza in the Italian restaurant next door when we got there only to be let down when we used it later on in the week when the lamb kebab was unedible. If you are coming from the airport on the 98 bus it does not stop outside as someone has said in an earlier review so please check with your driver where to get off as we spent an hour driving around the city trying to find the hotel.

Great location very clean and the staff were very friendly and helpful.Rooms were, as expected, on the small side but having booked a double bed i for each of the three couples in our party I was very disappointed that all three rooms had two single beds. on the whole however very pleased.

Hotel Boreal is situated in a perfect location. There is a great little café right next door for an afternoon exprès or an evening beer. It is just a few blocks off of the main street so it is very near the Monoprix (awsome store...like WalMart but MUCH nicer!), the mall (Nice Etoile). It is a short walk to the beach and the old part of town. The lobby is very welcoming and the rooms are very nice and quite comfortable. The staff is very warm and knowledgeable.

I can't rate this hotel high enough. After arriving quite late at night but still getting a warm reception and wine to welcome us to our rooms, we found the staff in the hotel to be friendly, helpful and extremely knowledgable about the area we were in. The location was perfect. Equal distance between the train station and the bus stops which all can take you to Monaco, Cannes, and beyond. Situated round the corner from the tram line aswell which takes you down to the docks for a boat trip if you wish.

Location and comfort aside, the best thing about this hotel is the staff. Friendly and willing to help with any problem you have - they are even posting out some clothes we left in the wardrobe by accident!

If you want a well priced, comfortable stay in the heart of Nice, this is the place for you.

Room Tip: Choose a room overlooking the front of the hotel

Just back from 4 night stay. Excellent location - 5 mins walk from main station and to Place massena form which Old town and Promende another 2 mins. Or 1 minute from Tram stop - Any bus/tram ticket, even to Antibes or Cannes is only 1 Euro ( a day pass 4 Euro.)

Considering location, it was very quiet - we had a room a rear of hotel (208). Room itself small, with twin beds. Bathroom was very good - must have been redone in last couple of years.

Service friendly and helpful. Free WiFi too!
We didn't have breakfast there (10 Euros) as there are loads of cafes nearby.

Room Tip: Rooms at rear very quiet

Its situated very centrally, 10 mins walk to the beach, 30 seconds to the main strip of shops and 10 mins to train station where we went to Monaco/Cannes which I must say was very cheap indeed. The hotel was very clean, the room while not that big was ideal as we were mostly out and about. The reception guys/girls were amazing with all our requests and all spoke very good english. Special mention for Serge (i think thats his name). Nothing was too much trouble wether that be the ironing board or a plug connector we had forgotten. Complimentary wine and chocs when we got there, very nice touch. Breakfast was good but to be honest we ate so much fish each night we were not that hungry. I would thoroughly recommend the place for its position, cleanliness and very welcoming staff.

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.
