Reviewed 20 July 2013 via mobile

We arrived a little early however our room was available and we were shown to it. The room itself was very clean and light and has everything that we needed. There was no milk and only two teabags however with the heat we drank bottled water which we kept cold in the mini fridge. The bed was very comfortable and there was a small canvas shelving/wardrobe unit which held our clothes for the week. My dresses were slightly long for it so I hung them on the other furniture. The bathroom was a perfect size although the bath was a bit small but it did have an over the bath shower which was great. The bed was made daily and the bathroom was cleaned, towels and bathmat changed a few times during our stay. The walls are a bit thin and we could hear people coming up and downthe stairs that said though once we were asleep we didnt wake until the sun peaked through and we heard the birds. The staff were very friendly during our stay. When we checked out on our last day we were able to leave our luggage at the hotel and collect in the evening which was very kind of them. The hotel is just down the road from the train station approx 10 min and 15-20min to the promenade. It is on a quiet street, out of the way of the hustle and bustle of the town. Perfect base for exploring Nice and the surrounding area.

Upped our budget a bit to stay here for 2 days but glad we spent the extra. Was a bit worried about the location as on google street view it looked a bit run down - I was pleasantly surprised. The rooms are big, quiet and beautiful. No noise even though the hotel was full. We could walk to the train station in 10 minutes and the centre of old Nice in less than 15. While not cheap, was better priced than most others and far better quality than hotels which were only slightly cheaper. Only significant con is that parking is very difficult to find - we were lucky that we returned our rental car the day we arrived and we didn't find a car was necessary (or even desirable) in Nice.

Loved this hotel - room was spacious, light and airy (but as one reviewer already commented - a little short on storage). Hotel staff friendly and helpful. The location is good. Would definitely stop here if go to Nice again.

Hotel is about 10min walk from the train station and about 25m walk to the old town. Room was clean. It's kind of a chic / minimalist hotel. Overall I thought the hotel was ok. The staff was very helpful and nice. The only problem was that the walls are quite thin and you can basically here the showers in the other room. Other than that it was fine, so might not be for everybody

We were very disappointed in our stay here. Had we not arrived so late we would most likely have gone elsewhere. No-one in reception when we arrived and we had to wait a long time on the doorstep before we were eventually let in. The hotel is in a very quiet side street and at 11 at night it was a bit worrying. The hotel was managed by two women who were the most unapproachable and stoneyfaced pair we have ever encountered in any hotel and certainly should not be in the hospitality business. The alsation dog under the desk in the office was also most inappropriate. We had no storage in the room except for a mini wardrobe made of canvas which was wobbling all over the place. The room was modern and newly decorated but very minimalistic to the point of being mean. The en-suite was very small and the damp bathmat was never changed, nor were the towels. We were rationed to 2 teabags each day and when we asked for milk we were told to go to the supermarket!
On checking out we found that they wanted to charge us 10 euros per day more than our booking form stated but we argued the point and they eventually backed down. We booked this place after reading the reviews but cannot believe it is the same place. All we can think is that these two women were new or temporary managers, but they certainly ruined our stay. A most miserable experience.

Room Tip: Keep well away.

My friend and I had an extremely disappointing experience. We found the management extremely unwelcoming. Only two tea bags in the room - no milk which we had to buy. Almost non existent wardrobe no drawers in the room and the towels werent changed during the four days we were there. The only good thing was the shower but the bathroom was very cramped. I will not be returning to this hotel

An absolutely gorgeous little gem of a hotel. I stayed recently with my boyfriend for his birthday and I can't give this hotel enough praise. I didn't want to spend ridiculous amounts just on somewhere to rest our heads, and the lower priced hotels all had terrible reviews - then I stumbled across this little haven. It's a great location and all of the rooms have different themes - gorgeous furnishings, great size, perfect bathroom. The staff couldn't be friendlier, managing to understand my terrible french and helping us find great places to have brunch and hire rollerblades. Definitely recommend this place - I can't wait to go back.

Room Tip: Go for a medium / large room :)
