“No complaints! A comfortable hotel in a great location.”
Reviewed 3 July 2014

We loved the Hotel Boreal, where we had everything we needed--a comfortable double bed with a mattress topper, air conditioning, a safe, a lovely bathroom and a good continental breakfast (there are also scrambled eggs and bacon on offer for those dyed-in-the-wool Brits who, odd as it seems to me, want cooked breakfasts when abroad.) The location is superb, in a quiet street but close to all the main attractions and wi-fi is also available. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: Ask for double bed if you prefer one.

We enjoyed an excellent week at the Boreal. The hotel is conveniently situated midway between the SNCF station and the main cafe/restaurant district. It is one minute from the tram stop in the main shopping area. Staff at the hotel could not have been more helpful and knowledgeable. Although the sleeping area was a bit on the small side, rooms had all the facilities expected of a comfortable three-star hotel, including reasonable wardrobe space and a free safe for passports, etc. Quality (and quantity) of food would satisfy British and continental tastes.

We stayed here last week for three nights. Check in was easy and welcoming. The room was small, having lost space to accommodate a full, well fitted out, bathroom. There was a safe and a kettle with complimentary tea and coffee. The outside temperature was up to 30C so we really appreciated the efficient adjustable room air conditioning and we had free wi-fi. We found the staff very pleasant and helpful. The hotel is very well situated, being just off the main shopping/tram street (Ave Jean Medecin) and about 10 minutes walk from the promenade, station, old town and main bus stops. This was our first visit to this hotel and we would be happy to return to it.

Room Tip: Room sizes vary so if you are not happy with what you are offered ask if there is a larger one avail...

Hotel Boreal is location on a quiet side street just 10 minutes walking from the train station and beach. Just a half block away are several shopping centers. The rooms are small, but they are clean. Staff is friendly and helpful.

Firstly, location is great, took 5 to 10 mins to get to the beach, close to shops and a few nice places to eat close by. Walking distance from the train station which was great for day trips. Room was well sized, bathroom clean and big enough. We did book a double room which turned out to be two singles, this has happened at other hotels with two singles made into a double however this was two single bed frames. Worth checking if it's something that may bother you. Overall a great stay.

Excellent 3 star hotel. Good location (walkable from station); helpful reception staff; room a bit small but well appointed with bath and shower, and clean, with good aircon (a blessing). First trip to Nice but very happy with choice and would definitely come back; We did not opt for the 11 euro breakfast but you pay around that anyway at outside cafes for a croque monsieur and coffee. Mike & Carole from Luton.

Room Tip: Go for one with a small balcony overlooking the street. Noise was not an issue. But no lifts to room...

This is a lovely hotel, very clean and the breakfast was first class. It is located very centrally for visiting Nice. The staff were very welcoming and we really enjoyed our holiday. It is situated just off the main thoroughfare which is a tram and bicycle only precinct, so very easy to cross the road.
