Hotel Victor Hugo Nice
Ranked #2 of 45 Nice B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 6 October 2013

As virtually all of the other reviews have stated, this place is a real gem. It doesn’t have all the bells and whistles that a 4 or 5 star hotel may have, and in many ways more resembles a B&B, but the rooms are spacious, clean and it is very central. I took the 23 bus from the airport and got off at the Alsace Lorraine gardens. The bus only costs €1.50. All you need to do then is to walk diagonally through the gardens and diagonally across the road is the hotel. I met other guests who had walked around for more than an hour to find the hotel. It is not immediately obvious, but if you just look for 59 Victor Hugo Boulevard then you can’t go wrong.
The breakfast was quite adequate with a good choice. As others have noted, Gilles is most helpful and will tell you exactly which bus etc. to take. The kitchen corner in the room is good for reheating things from the various supermarkets nearby if you don’t want to eat out every night.
Apart from the bathroom that is a bit smelly, due to the type of system that they use, the hotel is without fault. I would definitely stay there again.

The Victor Hugo was even better than expected. Lovely neighborhood, easy to find. Gilles was the perfect host, and Cosette was a delight. Our room was attractive, clean and spacious. Breakfast was generous. Light sleepers should be aware that the plumbing can be noisy. However, I wouldn't make that a deal-breaker. We wouldn't hesitate to stay here again!

Think of California beach casual in gorgeous Nice and this is the Victor Hugo. I can not think of enough kind words to say about this darling bed and breakfast or the wonderful owner. You are treated as a friend the minute you walk in the door. The location is a few blocks from the beach. It was easy to change for dinner and walk to Old Nice after a day on the beach. The room is very large. The kitchenette was very useful when you grow tired of spending 30 euros for every meal. The store, as well as a 24 hour laundry were minutes away. The bathroom is small, but think beach cottage.
You are escorted to the breakfast room by the adorable rescue dog Cosette. There are many foods to choose from as this is not a continental breakfast. Niles comes in each morning to ask about your day and give advice. He speaks English very well. The price is fantastic.
I was very, very sorry to leave after five nights in this pretty city.

Room Tip: You must have a kitchenette for picnics to the beach.

Great hotel in an ideal location to explore Nice. Gilles is an absolute gentleman and helping us navigate our way around Nice was never a problem to him. The room was spotlessly clean with fresh linen. Breakfast was more than ample with plenty to choose from.
What made our stay even more special was Gilles and Cosette who always gave a warm welcome.
Would highly recommend this hotel.

This hotel is located half way between the railway station and the sea front. Our room was lovely with a small sitting room off the bedroom. The bathroom was clean and the bed comfortable.
It is within walking distance to the station and also the beach and shops. The owner was most helpful and friendly. Definitely recommend.

We took the last 10 days "willy-nilly" or no reservations or travel plans except a global train ticket!
We found Victor Hugo a little hard to find at first but the reward when we found it was worth it. Gilles gave us a lot of personal hand holding to tell us where things were and how to find them including Knitting stores for my lovely wife. We arrived on the 30th of April and found that May 1st was a holiday so Gilles gave us some ideas of where to go with most of the stores closed.
The B and B was wonderful, rooms very nice, clean and roomy, not too big just right. The breakfast was delightful and the company fantastic.
We used this as our home base to go back to Monte Carlo and stroll on the beaches.
