“Way too expensive for what you get”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 August 2011

I booked a room for myself with private bathroom and minibar. Upon arrival I get a room with a shared shower two floors down. When complaining to the hotel staff, they told me that the hotel was fully booked and that it was not possible to get another room. I was not given the room I booked, because apparently there was a humidity problem, but no one informed me, nor was I given a discount. Only after complaining did I get 15 EUR back from the EUR 65 I paid. Still is EUR 50 way too much for the room I got, and I would've never booked this room, had I known all this before.
The room was very simple and only tv 5 channels were working. No AC, some old standing fan and no toilet, nor shower in the room. WIFI was only working 3 floors down in the hall way. All in all, not a good hotel!

We stayed two nights at Hotel du Centre, Nice. We checked out on a Sat. morning, walked to the Hertz office (1 mile away) to pick up our rental car. The Opel only had 4000 km on it, but it smoked and died at our hotel. We do not travel with a cellphone or laptop, so the hotel called the Hertz office for us and explained our dilemma. When a truck hauled the car away, the hotel again called Hertz for us to get a cab. They let us park our luggage at the desk while we waited & got us a sandwich & drink (almost 4 hours total wait). They were extremely helpful, kind, courteous and knowledgable about where we were going (Aix-en-Provence,etc.). This is only a 2-star hotel but we had everything we wanted and needed, and we would definitely stay there again. It's also located very conveniently on the tramline, within an easy walk to shopping, restaurants & the beach.
Merci beaucoup!

My boyfriend and I were looking to stay in Nice for a few nights, and this hotel, that was a bit of a gamble to book, paid off.
Other guests have complained about the noise from room to room, but all that I noticed was neighbours flushing the toilet or taking a shower ... it really wasn't that bad!

The room we were given had a view over the church opposite, and was clean. we were given 3 beds in our room so there was plenty of places to put our stuff. The air conditioning was a relief.

The location was ideal, situated just off the main street and a reasonable walk down to the promenade. Outisde traffic noise wasn't a problem, bearing in mind its central location.

The only small problems were that we didn't get clean towels one of the days and no bath mat. the breakfast we thought was too pricey for what they offered. city tax payment was sprung on us as we were rushing to the airport. wifi also stopped working.

would stay here again should i find myself in Nice again.

Hotel standards aren't great on the French Riviera. This hotel was of a comparable standard to those that charge similar rates in the area. It's close to the train station, and 10-15 mins walk to old Nice and the sea. It's well served by bus and tram routes. The front desk staff were friendly and helpful. The room was of a reasonable size, and it and the ensuite bathroom were clean. The matress and bed however had seen better days - and were not very clean. The room overlooked a closed in square and the hum of fans from other buildings was noisy at night. The AC did not work. In general the hotel is a little shabby with no luxuries or extras. It is exactly the standard of accomodation that you get for this price in this location, but that isn't fantastic....

A VERY well-located, but small, charming little hotel. Gay-owned and operated and LGBTQ-friendly. Inside rooms have a "Paris view" of courtyards and rooftops. Cheap.

Stayed for one night. Staff were friendly. Room was fine..comfortable, clean, aircon.
Short walk from the square. Very friendly, helpful staff.

We were there for one night, to rest our heads and then head off down the coast. It was perfect for this purpose! Just what you would expect for the money.
