“Great Location”
Reviewed 29 October 2008

Juat arrived back from a long weekend stay at the Hotel Boreal and had a very good time. We flew into Nice and got the no.98 bus right outside the airport which takes you to Nice bus station at a cost of 4 Euro's each. The hotel is just a fifteen minute walk from the bus station and is just off the main shopping street with a Supermarket just 10m away and the excellent Nicetoille shopping centre around 50m at the end of the street. There are lots af restaurants and bars close buy and an Irish bar close to the flower market. The hotel itself is very clean and the rooms are well kept with clean towels daily. The weather for October was great at a comfortable 22-25 C. Would go back to this hotel again and can recommend it .

We stayed on a bed and breakfast basis for one week in September.

It was excellent value for money - the staff were friendly and the hotel was exceptionally clean.

Typical continental breakfast - only problem on one day was 2 large groups filling the breakfast room and the overspill area near reception but no big deal.

Hotel location great close to the massive shopping centre and a pleasant stroll to the beach and the old town.

Loads of bars and restaraunts a few minutes walk away.

Definitely would go back well worth the cost (But if you want 5* you would need to pay a lot more than this hotel especially in Nice which is not cheap).

If you go here go with an open mind - as we did - remember more people moan than are satisfied which is why reviews on here always seem to paint a worse picture than reality.

Enjoy!

Had 5 days at this hotel from 2 - 6 October. Staff extremely helpful, rooms very clean and towels changed every day. Breakfast excellent for continental. Very well placed for walking everywhere but found the tram useful as well. The bus system is fantastic and they run on time. Bus to and from airport every 20 minutes.

We really enjoyed our stay at the hotel. It is quaintly furnished and I thought it was a lot better than the 2 stars it was advertised at. We were able to walk everywhere including to the old town easily and the staff were excellent. We really enjoyed our stay in Nice and the hotel Boreal was a big part of that.

Stayed here for a week in August 08. I thought the hotel was really good value for money. The location was perfect - just a walk from the beach and shops but still in a quiet area. The decor isn't very modern though. Its quite quaint but very french which i liked. I would stay here again if i was in Nice

After reading the positive reviews about this hotel I booked for a week in August 2008. The hotel location is fantastic, just far enough away from the bust noisy restaurants but 5-10minutes walk to the shops and beach. There is a good size shop a few metres down the road which stocks everything you could ever need from toiletries, snacks etc.

The hotel receptionist was very friendly, spoke good English and privided maps and beach mats! The room whilst basic was ultra clean and comfortable, clean towels each day. The bathroom looked brand new!

The breakfast was basic but adequate and good quality and included cereal, meat, bread, coffee etc and was served up till 10am!! The only downside was that you had to pay £2 per day to hire the key for ther safety deposit box!!

The number 99/98 bus from outside the airport terminal both drop off 10 minutes from the hotel (98 goes to the bus station, 99 to the train station and cost only 4 euros!! ) I'd go for the 98 and get off at the bus station.

Overall the hotel was very good, met all our requirements and I would certainly stay here again!! One last tip, avoid the two pizzerias near the hotel, the best food is on the main street, the Massina Taverna was exceptional and reasonable!!!

We had a very pleasant 6 night stay at the Boreal. Our room was bright and well air conditioned (very important for August in Nice!!).

This was our second visit to Nice, having spent 4 nights there in summer 2006. However, on that occasion our hotel was near Acropolis; further from the Promenade. The Boreal is much more conveniently located, being within easy walking distance to the Promenade des Anglais, the main shopping areas and the old town.

The hotel personnel were pleasant and helpful.

Having stayed in many French hotels (mostly Paris but also Marseille and Nantes) we found the Boreal to be one of the best. I wouldn't hesitate to book this hotel again if I was planning another trip to Nice.

  • Liked — Bright, quiet and clean bedroom. Slept very well every night.
  • Disliked — No significant problems at all!
