My wife and I decided to stay here as we had tickets to the 2012 Monaco Grand Prix. Unfortunately everything in Nice and surrounding areas more than doubled in price just for this week 23rd-30th May.
It is listed as a 3 star and to be honest it's not the best 3 star hotel we have ever stayed in, but it's certainly not the worst.
On the plus side the room we stayed in was more than adequate in size, loads of hot water, beds were changed frequently and the towels were changed every day.
The only negatives for us were the breakfast, that consisted of either rolls and cheese, cold boiled eggs and some sort of cereals or coissaints with jam. There was fruit available on 2 days and there was also cold meat available on these days. We asked for a kettle which was provided and there was a supermarket just around the corner where we were able to buy all of the necessary provisions. Proximity to the train station was excellent. The only other thing I did not like was that the hotel staff tried to insist that keys were left in reception but were on plain view for everybody to see and the reception was not always manned which meant that room keys were vulnerable. As I said earlier for an out of season holiday or even not during the grand prix this hotel offered good value for money BUT during the Grand Prix it was just an average hotel as the price increased from 115 euros to 255 per night.
