“Not The Same As Before”
Reviewed 29 October 2008

We stayed at La Petite Sirene years ago and it was charming. We new it was small that;s OK, but the bathroom in my room had a leak in the ceiling and was molded everywhere and the AC didn't work the response was "So" Finally they changed my room and it was clean and mold free and the AC worked. We were there the last week of September everywhere was packed for the end of the summer...we loved that, but have enough staff to take care of your guests....I'm afraid we would not return...Sorry, but true.....

The hotel looks romantic and quaint in the pictures, but it is very basic and unluxurious in reality. Particular disappointments were a tiny room (a double room was in fact two single beds next to each other), the grubby decor (except for nice bathroom), the breakfast (a small piece of bread, a dry croissant and a teabag), no outdoor space or terrace, no parking, staff entering the bedroom without knocking and not even apologising, and finally the very bad value for the high price. Having stayed in many other hotels in Nice over the past two years this was by a long way the most disappointing and was more like a backpacker hostel. It does have an ideal location for central Nice though.

  • Liked — location near the sea although no views
  • Disliked — Total experience very disappointing - it should not pretend it is a quaint hotel, it is a basic small hostel.

The Petite Sirene is a small (18 rooms) french hotel very well placed for the sea front (5 minutes brisk walk) or the main shopping area

The rooms are well maintained although the furntiture is "characterful" rather than modern - bath room in our room had recently been upgraded with some very modern fittings. The standard of housekeeping is good and the double glazing means it is very quiet overnight. There is a lift.

Staff are very helpful but not overly effusive

We stayed 3 nights but would have been happy to stay longer - an identical breakfast every morning was the only real quibble we had - and they could do with more storage/hanging space.

I stayed here with a few friends while backpacking. We got to Nice and there were no places left in the hostels and we had to walk around and find somewhere to stay. This hotel was excellent, it ended up being a very good deal because they had rooms that slept 4 people, as well as smaller rooms, so we actually ended up not paying that much when you worked it out.

The decor was really pretty, it was new, clean, and very relaxing. The bathrooms were also new and very nice. The hotel is in an excellent location, a couple of minutes walk to the Promenade des Anglais, and near restaurants and shops.

This hotel was one of the best value for money I have stayed at in a long time. It was nicer than hotels I have stayed at that are way more expensive.

I had a wonderful stay at La Petite Sirene earlier this year. From the moment I arrived, the friendly and helpful staff took great care to ensure everything was perfect during my stay.

This lovely hotel is ideally located, in a very nice, safe area, just a few minutes walking distance from shopping, restaurants, and the ocean.

My room was beautifully decorated and exceptionally clean. The lobby and bar, where they host an evening happy hour, was very comfortable and overall the hotel was quite charming.

I highly recommend La Petite Sirene and will definitely return again.
