Hotel Villa Eden
Ranked #151 of 203 Hotels in Nice
Reviewed 7 July 2013

This is a lovely small B and B type family hotel right on the Promenade des Anglais. It is a twenty minute walk into Nice Old Town and a fifteen minute walk to the main station.
The staff are very friendly and helpful. My school French came in handy though as English is barely spoken.
We had a lovely ensuite(shower) room with a garden view at the side The beds are very comfortable and the air conditioning was great. Continental Breakfast is served at the front in the enclosed terrace garden which was lovely.
We have stayed in other medium priced hotels in Nice and this ranks as the best. Admittedly it is not the closest into the town but the fact that the beach and Promenade are right there makes up for it. There are also plenty of restaurants just a few minutes walk away. It is also very good value for money I can't wait to stay at Villa Eden again!

Room Tip: We had a garden room at the side which is probably quieter than the rooms at the front with sea view...

We had to find a hotel at a low budget and chose the Eden. The furniture was shabby and rickety and the beds were low quality. There was no reading light. One could not sit on the toilet seat because it was placed to close to the wall. Sad, really, because the staff was kind and the parking was very cheap, and location was great. But no care taken on improvements that indicated basically poor management.

Room Tip: We did not get a sea view room, but I imagine the general shabbiness of the furnishings was the same...

Great sea views, used to be a home to a old Russian countess (which is really cool since I'm 1/2 Russian) , and had really good costumer service. They also spoke really good English. Bus out front brings you directly to Airport or into the Old Town.

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)
