Reviewed 12 March 2010

We stayed here for 3 nights. We got a special offer of our 3rd night free so the 3 nights for 2 people was €100. As well as the hotel being great value it really is in a fantastic location. It is a 2 minute walk from Place Massena and is on a quiet street just off the main shopping area. It is also very near the Cour Sayela and the old town.

The receptionst's were very helpful. The hotel feels newly decorated and was very clean throughout. The vending machine in the foyer was very convenient for water. Our room was very small and we had to squeeze past each other getting ready in the morning. However, this isnt a problem for a city break as we were hardly in the room. The bathroom was suprisingly big with a lovely power shower. There is free wireless in the foyer but not in the rooms.

This is a great hotel and we would definitely stay again. Just be aware that a double bed is two single beds pushed together which isnt very comfortable for the person falling down the middle during the night! That was the only downside for us.

We have stayed here twice in the last 2 years with groups of friends who have all been happy with the standard of the hotel. The staff on the desk are very pleasant and helpful. At breakfast we had a decent choice given the overall price of the stay. It could not be more central.

I picked this hotel as the reviews from other travellers were so good. It has an ideal location being near the main shopping street which you literally wander down and then you are by the sea. The staff all spoke perfect english and were great at recommendations and answering questions. If you are looking for a fabulous French restaurant, go the 'le Flo'. It's on the road behind Gallerie Lafayette and the food is amazing. Nice was a great city to just wander and for only 1 euro, you can get a bus to monaco/st paul de vence and many other places. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone who wants 3 star accommodation at a great price. We paid 45 quid per night via Octopus Travel and the hotel rooms stated in reception 115 euros per night so great saving

We really enjoyed our stay at the Hotel Boreal. We booked this hotel during the Easter period, when there weren't many options within our price range. We went in with low expectations based on the other reviews on Trip Advisor and we were pleasantly surprised.

Positives:
+ Great location, not far from the main station (turn left on your way out of the station, not right), and not far from the main beach area. Because of the proximity to the train station, this hotel is also a great hub to explore other places such as Cannes, Monaco and St Paul (you can also take advantage of the 1 Euro bus rides).
+ Free wireless internet. Worked very well.
+ Service was reasonable, helpful when you ask them about the area, and how to get around. In addition, took time to explain things when you checked in.
+ Great restaurant nearby, they remembered you when you came back.
+ Great value for money.

Negatives:
- Room was small, probably the smallest we'd stayed in, however, still ok for two people. If the price is within your budget, would strongly recommend. Don't let room size put you off.

Stayed at the Hotel Boreal early Nov for 2 nights. The location was perfect- half way between the railway station and the sea/old town. The new tram line stops a minute away from the hotel, (public transport is very efficient and very cheap), The hotel was clean and tidy and the staff were extreamly helpfull and friendly, Overall it was excellent value for money and I would diffinaly stay there again if I return to Nice.
