I visited Nice for a science conference which was held in the Acropolis and stayed one extra day as a tourist.
I stayed in a decently sized room (at least for 1 person), with 2 beds, one small, very suitable to leave your suitcase on and the other a double size bed, great if you're alone.
The room has a modern, though somewhat dark look and appeared to be cleaned every day.
It was supposedly equipped with some kind of air conditioning, but it was controlled centrally, which turned out to be pretty useless. I ended up opening the windows anyway, even though a sticker suggested the room was "air conditioned" and one should not need to open it.
The room even had a fridge and a water cooker with instant coffee and tea replenished every day.
A problem though, was the lack of power outlets on the bed-side of the room. There was only one in the hall and two at the desk. So , if you're like me and want to watch some show on your laptop in bed, or want to charge your phone during the night, while it still being on your night stand, I would suggest to bring an extension chord (2m might do, make it 3 just to be sure).
The bathroom was very tidy and the shower reached good temperatures and water pressure. Clean towels every day.
Staff were very friendly throughout my stay, always greeting, even in the morning when I can't really manage more than a grunt. When I left, a receptionist ordered a taxi for me, after making me some coffee (at the bar, so I did have to pay for it). She too was very friendly.
Then, last and least, the breakfast. Frankly, that was rather crappy. The bread was ok, but the fruit was almost warm, the bacon was chewy and the eggs bland. The coffee, to my surprise was also rather bad. Aside from the hotel it seemed impossible to come across a bad cup of coffee, hence the shock. The little plastic cups of yogurt were also almost warm. They really do need to put this stuff in a fridge.
All-in-all a decent hotel, with a poor breakfast. Maybe it would be better to book without breakfast and have some proper food in a cafe on your way to wherever you're going.
