“Nice hotel, lovely little garden”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 July 2008

For a reasonable price this hotel offers good location, friendly service (also in English), stylish public areas, a little gym and a lovely (although shady) garden with a pool.

The standard room - not one of those "designer rooms" - was a bit worn, but totally acceptable and always clean.

We might very well stay there again.

We spent a lovely stay and we were very surprised to have the opportunity to choice between a traditional room and a artist room. We finally chose the second one facing the garden but the first one was very funny. The garden is delightful and the staff as well. I will definitely recommend this hotel to all my friends.

It seems that they are trained to try to put you in the smallest room first and see if you would complain or not. We asked for a non-smoking room, but the smell was so strong. Location is not something to write home about.

This hotel bills itself as a "artsy" boutique hotel - but it fails dismally.

The hotel has a nice garden - however this opens onto a fairly busy street hence is fairly noisy. The rooms are small with very poor lighting and fittings. The AC barely works, the TV is somewhat temperamental, the bed and furnishings minimal. There is no coffee maker or clock in the room and the hairdryer was wired to the wall. Even the soap/shampoo is tiny and not replaced daily. I'd like to find something positive to say however this would be a sruggle.

This hotel is a not very good 2- star hotel at a 3+ star hotel price.

Convenient location, very friendly ambience and lovely garden terrace area for breakfast in the summer.
Our bedroom did not have a view and looked onto a street, but in fact the character of the bedroom itself meant that the view was not needed to give the room an interesting feel. Be prepared for slightly 'wacky' modern designs, but in good taste and well finished.
Finally, the swimming pool is very cute and it gives the garden a nice feel but it's not really big enough for swimming lengths in case that is important for you!
Overall we were really pleased with our choice to stay here, the staff were very helpful and friendly and it's uniqueness really stood out to us.

  • Liked — Modern and funky decor, whilst still very tasteful
  • Disliked — Internet connection very unreliable

What a wondeful, small hotel. In a really good location to explore all of Nice, but away from the really busy touristy streets. Lovely unexpected garden and pool area. Make sure you get a room that overlooks the garden, rather than the road. We stayed in room number 54 - Henri Olivier which had a lovely view and a beautiful bathroom... I can't recommend it enough!

  • Liked — Unique style and great central, but quiet location

We stayed in the Hotel Windsor back in Summer 2004.

We loved the quirky rooms- with the individual decor! However we did find the room slightly small, particularly the bathroom.

The graden is lovely for sitting and taking breakfast, but we found the pool too shady for swimming in.

The location is great for walking to the beach, shops and restaurants.

Overall I would say that it is good value for money and also it has a bit of character!

  • Liked — Loaction and individual touches.
  • Disliked — Size of the rooms/ bathroom.
