“Choose the right room.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 May 2012

If you get a room third floor, facing the nice little park, I think you made one of the best choises in Nice. That is if you think it´s important with:
1. Large room, which all of the mentioned are. Room 305 is even a bit spacier than those beside.
2. Perfect location for a tourist. Near Promenade Anglais, the pedestrian area with shopping/restaurants and Old Town
3. A large balcony with interesting view
4. Beds wide and very comfortable. No plasic cover between sheet and matress (most hotels in France/Spain have that nowadays.)
5. Silent and well-working AC.
6. Friendly and informative staff (the not so nice breakfast-lady was an exception. But you can avoid her, by skipping the very dull breakfast. Lots of good options within a few minutes walk.)
On the negative side: No safety box in the room. If you stay lower than third floor, your view will be very restricted and you get more of traffic noise (if you still are on the frontside.) Bathroom and beds spotless clean. Floor and balcony not. But OK for us.
Before we moved to Carlton we had a room at hotel Lepante.10% cheaper, but our room there was one third in size. And that hotel had no 24-hours reception and were a bit more uncentral located.

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 December 2011

Went down to Nice over the Christmas period 2011 and found this gem of a 3 star hotel on the internet. The only problem and it say in so many reports is there are no shower curtains, so we did know before we went. It Is a problem and I cannot understand why the owners dont do anything about it. That apart the Hotel is in a great place for all of Nice. The tram stop is a 5 minute walk, the train station 15 min walk , the beach ten mins, and shops ect 5 mins. We found the hotel clean all round . Our third floor room was cleaned every day, new towels and was a good size. The guys on reception were very helpful apart from one but we all have a bad day now and then. We would return without doubt.A Great place for the money.

Room Tip: Ask for a balcony

I stayed at this hotel at Single room on 2-nd floor for 2 nights ,place itself is quite close to all Nice sightseeing and the beach,but my particular room did not had a fridge,tea/coffee pot or AC Unit, breakfast also was a bit lame( coffee,croisant with butter and jam,that's all)
,but You can not expect too much from Europe 3 star Hotels. Room was clean,with Big drawer and quite comfy bed,as I mentioned it had not have ACU but I had floor fan instead.
Bathroom was clean,my room had only shower though but very tide and nice.

After reading the other reviews I was expecting the worst but I was pleasantly surprised. The rooms are lovely and spacious with high ceilings and massive windows opening out onto a balcony. This hotel won't win any awards for facilites or decor but it was very clean and the staff were extremely friendly. The reception desk is manned 24hrs a day. A very good location 10 mins walk from the station and 10 mins walk in the other direction to the centre. I would stay again.

Pro's - Receptionist was very pleasant, near train station, nice balcony.

Con's - no tea/coffee facilities, not very comfortable, covers were a bit grubby, no shower curtain so after 2 showers, the bathroom was flooded, towels provided were small and old.

Just about ok for a stopover, nothing longer than 1-2 nights!

Arrived in Nice with no accommodation due to the financial collapse of our booking agent. We eventually ended up here as it was one of the few habitable places with a vacancy.

My main gripe with this place is that there is no way it's 3 stars, I would compare it to a dated hostel with private rooms. A two star IBIS hotel would be considered luxury alongside this place and cost less in most instances.

The final straw was our neighbor banging on the paper thin wall for us to turn down the TV, we left the following morning and moved to the Best Western West End, a world of luxury compared to this place.
