“Avoid This Hotel!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 May 2012

Horrible experience. Our hotel room had a terrible smell that permeated the room at night...like sewage from the drain. No wonder hotel door to the balcony was slightly open upon arrival! For fresh air! beds the worst ever. Hard, old and...well, very very old, dirty. Rotting wood on doors to balcony. Walls paper thin. They did have a flat screen tv which seemed out of place as the rest of the hotel was very run down. The front desk guy was really sweet though. And breakfast LOOKED good but we missed it as we were not told to notify them the night before. We stayed here two nights as it was prebooked and payed for via Booking.com :-( The ONLY good thing? It is right across from the beach. So, if you can stand everything else....go for it. We will never stay here again.

Nice, 2+ star inset 1/2 block off the Promenade de Anglais. Sea and promenade view. Comfortable rooms; good breakfast in garden. Older hotel but there is no street noise from the promenade. Sleep with windows open. Best value in the area. Short walk to Nice centre.

Got a bad recommendation. In fairness the reception staff were nice, and there was a nice view. But that's about the only good thing to say about this place! It is REALLY run down, we were lucky enough to get a room with an "en-suite". The rooms were decrepid, paint flaking everywhere, holes cut in wall paper, the bed was broken. In fairness, the cleaners seemed to do the best they could, but definitely never again (and even if the place was renovated I would pick somewhere further up the Promenade, closer to the Old Town)

Close to airport by the bus.
The presentation of the property and room on the official website is rather misleading. Pictures do not correspond to the actual product. Although it is an ex villa of a russian douchesse, the building is accordingly old.
Beds are too short and rather small for a couple.
Good value on the non complementary breakfast package, with a big croissant, served by the receptionist.
Sea view room is the only good one.
Pleasant receptionist but thats all.

There are 3 star hotels in central-nice that have only slightly higher (or equal) rates, and provide much better customer value.

Positive: the service was very good, friendly personal, for a 2-stars-hotel the room was big (we got a room with sea view, 1 double bed and 2 single beds), the bathroom had a nice size, the air conditioning is very silent and works very good, the hotel is very near of the beach (it's very nice to walk there), near of restaurants, the breakfast was delicious (specially the croissants).
Negative: the toilet was very dirty (you could smell urine since the entrance of the bathroom. Also I asked the girl to clean it, but it looks like she only gave a product to give it a good smell), the double bed has a small size (I am 1,73m and had my feet out of the bed all the night).
In general it was ok, but I have to say that the dirty toilet made me disappointed. Cleaning has nothing to do with price or quantity of stars. This is something very basic: everybody likes to feel good, in a cleaned hotel.

I lived in Monaco and my cousin was at the University of Nice in the 70s, so I know Nice and the Promenade des Anglais very well. My French cousin actually recommended this hotel to me. He and his spouse stay there every year and take an ocean view room. I took the cheapest back view and was perfectly fine!!! The room was wonderful, European feel, and clean. Breakfast in the beautiful garden or lobby suited me to a T and I liked watching the neighborhood cats play. The staff was so nice to me (I stayed 9 days and they treated me like family). I spent my days out strolling the beach, visiting my old haunts, museums, and the cinema, taking the bus and train to neighboring villages. It was heaven and the price was so reasonable. I hope to make it a habit going back. It was so nice to be treated in a friendly way after my week in a sterile Paris hotel where the front desk people were jerks. And I SPEAK FRENCH!

The hotel has been remodeled on the second floor and part of the first. The staff was very attentive and ready to help at any occasion. This was my first time staying in this hotel and I can't wait to go back soon. The breakfast in the garden (or in the room) was just great. The coffee, and especially the bread and croissant , were delicious. Even though you are on one of the main streets, it is very quiet at night.
