We found out on arrival that we were in the older part of Nice...this is true, but we found it to be safe.
The location is quite good - it is a gorgeous and scenice 10 minute stroll to the amazing Nice esplanade and beach (as pictured in my display picture).
The rooms looked nicer on the website, as the balcony only overlooked the back of the hotel. However the decor was classic beachy blue and yellow, and comfortable - except for the distinct lack of airconditioning - it is controlled across the level, you only have a vent in your room that is out of your control, and the cool air doesn't distribute well at all. I don't mind the heat, but some people have less tolerance for the high 30 degrees...so keep this in mind!
Breakfast was fine, same as all other hotels on our tour through Italy, France, Spain. The big issue was that the dining room is too small and our tour group was reserved the same table as another, meaning that about 20 of us we standing with full trays that we had to dump and come back to. More staff organisation would have helped with this.
Nice is beautiful, Apogia is nice...although I'd go for a place with a beach view next time!
