When I arrived with my family to Nice, we took the number 98 bus to the end of the line (as told to by someone at the airport). From there they said Roquebilliere is just a road away, which it was. Only problem was that this road is a very long one and we were at the bottom end of it. There are no numbers on places so we had no idea where to go. Noone has heard of this hotel so noone could help us. We came on Sunday, which apparently was a mistake as there were no taxis around. Eventually I found the tram to get there. Its not the best location to the city centre and not easy to find but its only a short-ish tram ride away. One receptionist was friendly, helpful and could speak some English but the other did not smile once, not helpful and didn't speak any English. When I got back one day to my hotel room, the maid had her phone charging in a socket and had my TV on loud. The next day the same maid walked in to my room without even knocking very early in the morning. It is also a busy road so there was a lot of traffic noise including building work going on. The hotel has free wifi, which was great and 24hr access to a fridge to put stuff in. The room was very clean and spacious. Really enjoyed being here. There is also a big supermarket round the corner. All in all, the hotel was very cheap for Nice and how nice the hotel was. I would definitely go here again.

Great value! Rooms were clean with all standard conveniences.

If you have a car the hotel has good, secure parking onsite and only a short drive to the beach and main tourist area in Nice. No view of anything exciting but if you want an affordable night this is the way to go.

It's not a problem to find a parking place near the hotel. Wifi is free but don't forget to take password on receiption. Hotel is situated on the cross of 2 streets, so it would be a problem to sleep with open windows. Hotel is quite far from center, but clean, modern-interier and worth it's money.

Receiption was not talking english fluently but we finally understood each other. Near the hotel were some construction works, so it probably could be be a noise-problems for some of rooms of the hotel.

This hotel is very modern, clean and the staff is very friendly. The breakfast area is nice and the breakfast is average. You can walk to the center of town, 10-15 mins walk. In total, we had a great stay.

We booked a triple for two nights, checking in on a Saturday night. We found the room to be very modern, clean and spacious. The staff on the front desk are very friendly and helpful. Although the hotel is located slightly out of Nice central, the tram will take you to the City centre in under 10 minutes. All in all we were very pleased with our stay.

Not sure what more I can add given previous reviews but we had a triple room (that was all that were left) for approx £80 per night. It was huge, had a lovely balcony with good views of the mountain. It was room 501 closest to the lift, quiet and comfortable; just perfect. The hotel was fully booked for the whole weekend that we were there but it didnt feel at all crowded. We saw a few french people were staying too, so we felt in the "know" as it were. Loved the Supermarche, which we walked past every morning on our way to the tram stop, which was also great for stocking up before you head back to the airport!

Getting to and from the Airport: Pretty much pain free and cheap. We got the last 98 bus (leaves at 00h00), from the closest stand to the exit (No.1 I think?). Bought a ticket on the bus as the ticket office was closed. The € 4.00-ticket you buy on the bus is a one day ticket, which you can also use for the tramway.

Got off at the "Bus station" stop, we asked the driver to let us know which stop to get off, to get a tram and he was lovely enough to do this. Literally just crossed the road to the tram stop, its well signedposted. The tram only goes in two directions you want the direction of “Pont Michel”. You get off at the tram stop called “Virgile Barel”. Cross over the road to the other platform and then if you face the direction the tram was going you want to take the first left hand turn off that road (there should be a shop on your side of the road and a pharmacy across the road. Walk straight for 2 minutes’ (crossing over 1 road) when you get to the end there is a roundabout and a petrol station,turn left and you are at the hotel. Voila!

pros: Really large light and airy triple room, large bathroom, good safe, free wifi, air con was good, balcony with an excellent view considering it's location. My special request on my booking with "Booking.com" was taken into account by the hotel. I emailed ahead of our stay for directions and I got immediate responses to all my questions. Staff are really helpful. You can choose whether you have the breakfast at 8 Euros, we chose not as we wanted to try the many boulangeries so we were glad this was not built into the room price and optional.

Very Minor niggles: No shower curtain/divide however the bathroom is quite large so its not a huge problem, the floor by the sink will remain dry. We had a late flight and they dont have a dedicated area you can shower/ freshen up after you have checked out and I guess as it was full there were no rooms to spare. However the receptionist was lovely and let us use what must have been the staff shower room so it worked out for us. There are also no computers available but again when I really needed one the receptionist let me use the reception computer so it just shows how much the staff really make this place!!

Would definitely stay here again unless I'm feeling super plush and can afford one of the fancy and very expensive hotels on the beach front!

Room Tip: 501 (triple)is on the top floor, great view from balcony and nearest to the lift. It alsio beneftis...

We stayed overnight. The hotel is new, clean and very well organized. The staff was more than helpful. There is a secure parking at the basement. The Hotel is situated near the train station but there are nearby tram stations that can take you to the Old City and around Nice in general. The Wi-Fi had a good reception and speed, but you needed to relog-in quite often. The breakfast was served in a nice semi-outdoor environment, but the options were rather few.
