This was a basic accommodation with a basic breakfast. The true French small size room!
However... it was very clean , very helpful staff, lots to eat for breakfast and above all a super location. Our heavy North American luggage only had to be pulled 1.5 blocks from the train station and the main street with many amenities was close by. The downtown (old town) is easily a walk away and we walked to the Chagall Museum as well. Had internet in the lobby with lots of chairs-well used by many. Has an elevator for bags -thank goodness!
Very pleasant stop over. Couldn't beat it for value.Go for it!

My wife and I stayed at the Saint Gothard hotel in Nice from the 23rd - 26th April 2013. During our three night stay I found the hotel staff very pleasant , approachable and fluent in English (which is always nice).

We did not have breakfast in the hotels on any of the mornings, instead choosing to go out and find a nice place to sit in one of Nice's many squares, so I could not comment on the breakfast front, although I have not heard many positive reviews.

The hotel was in a decent location, just off av Jean Medecin (the main street running through central Nice), and was just round the corner from a nice little square centered round a roundabout with cafe's (of which we ate out at a few times). Although I will say that it was a fair walk to the promenade (about 20 mins) or nice's 'old town'. but the walk was pleasant nonetheless.

The rooms themselves were basic and adequate for a couple or lone traveler just wanting a place to rest their head. We did not spend much time in the hotel room as we were out a fair bit, however we did enjoy the use of the balcony that came with our third-floor room. The rooms were clean and well presented, with good air-con and lighting and also a tv.

Upon checking out the lady at reception was immensely helpful in directing us to where the 99 bus to the Airport went from, which was a great help.

Overall, a great hotel for the price we paid (about €140 for 3 nights), in a decent location surrounded by great bars and places to eat (Vietnamese, Italian, American, French, English), Although the hotel was a few streets back, don't go hanging around the train station at night as the area was a little rough.

Room Tip: If you have an early flight and arrive at the hotel earlier than you check-in, try and ask for a roo...

The hotel itself was basic but had everything you need and was clean. Hotel staff were friendly and helpful giving us advice when asked. The room we stayed in had a balcony which was a bonus for sitting out to watch the street down below. It was a 10-15 minute walk to the promenade and surrounding areas like old town but if you dont fancy walking there is a tram line running with a stop just a few minutes walk away from the hotel. The 99 bus from the airport drops you off only a 2-3 minute walk away from the hotel, which is also just outside the main train station with links to further attractions such as monte carlo. Overall well located with surrounding restaurants and shops. Very pleased with the hotel and the price.

Cheap - yes! We stayed four nights and it didn't break the bank.

Three things we couldn't take:

1. The breakfast is just too bad. Hard baguette, no cheese, cheap coffee machine, old cereals. Better not bother with free breakfast and just charge a breakfast we could actually eat.

2. We found a cockroach in the very small rooms. We booked two rooms for the family.

3. The cleaners speak English and they told us to keep our kids from not messing up. We met them late afternoon as they are not done cleaning the rooms (yes, they clean so late and so slow!)

We definitely got what we paid for and what we didn't pay for.

We wanted a place to stay in Nice that was cheap and cheerful yet clean and convenient and this is exactly what we got. We stayed here for 7 nights and were more than satisfied with our stay.

The rooms were clean and fairly spacious with a TV. One of our rooms (we had two for our party) had a small balcony overlooking the street. The rooms were cleaned daily and to a high standard.

The bathroom was small but clean and adequate. There was a wall mounted hair dryer in the bathroom but it wasn't very powerful. Although it would dry your hair, it would be useless for blow dry styling. To that end ladies, if you want to blow dry your hair properly into a style I would recommend you bring you own hair dryer and mirror. I suggest bringing your own mirror because there is only one plug socket in the room and I doubt the hair dryer's lead would stretch far enough to use the bathroom mirror.

The staff were friendly and helpful, we had no problems.

Breakfast (optional extra) was a croissant and a small baguette per person. There was also Coco Pops, milk, tea, coffee, water, orange juice, butter, jam and marmalade available, you can help yourself to as much as you like of these.

The hotel's location was very convenient, a stone's throw away from the main shopping area and Nice Ville train station. We went to Cannes and Monaco on the train, very easy. There are many restaurants close to the hotel so finding somewhere to eat was never a problem. If you get really desperate, the hotel lobby has a vending machine selling sweets and drinks.

Free Wifi is available but the best place to get it seems to be in the lobby rather than the rooms as most evenings people were sat in the lobby using their devices.

Remember, this is a budget hotel, not a 5 star hotel. You get what you pay for. If you want to stay in luxurious, salubrious surroundings with 24 hour room service and concierge service then you need to drastically increase your budget and stay elsewhere. However, if you want clean accommodation in a convenient location for a very reasonable price then you wouldn't go far wrong by booking this hotel. I'm awarding this hotel 5 stars because it met our expectations, we had no problems whatsoever and we would be happy to stay here again.

This hotel was fine for a night's rest. Compact but excellent value for money.

Three minutes walk from Nice Ville station (so great for train or air arrivals - the easy train transit from airport via Nice St Augustin station is under-publicised).
Clean; friendly staff; medium sized wardrobe with hangers; lift that works.
Small bedroom, small bathroom, some 'drain smell' in the bathroom.

So what's unusual ?

Big plus (and unusual for the price of room): My top floor room (404) had a small private balcony with chair and great view of .. the sky. (Not sure about rooms on lower floors).
Small room irritation: When sitting on the toilet your knees are splayed wide apart and still both touching the wall in front of you.

I would recommend - the general friendliness and balcony outweigh the roomsize and bathroom.

(Breakfast offered - didn't try)

Room Tip: Som rooms have balconies.
