“Disgusting”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2012

I've slept at some seedy hotels, but this was in its own league. The mattress on the floor was moist and mouldy and the room was full of flys. Something that looked suspiciously like feces was all over the walls. The smell was worst of all. We only had to spend one night here, but I did consider actually sleeping on the street instead. We wouldn't touch the linen and slept with our clothes on trying not to touch anything. Even though I slept next to open windows, the smell of the room was sickening. I'm not even going to go inte how we spent hours just trying to find someone who worked there for check in. Never again.

I like the neighborhood (although it's close to shadier blocks). We got a big nice room for the lower rate, even when we didn't expect it. There were thiefs trying to steal our stuff, and it didn't seem to be the first time at that hotel. The management did their part to help us though. They are serious people.

Stayed June 2011, travelled with friends

The hotel is little bit cheaper than other 2 stars near by, but it is unrepaired, dirty and askes the same prize for nothing. the real prize must be for one room about 25 EUR.
The opposite Baccard offers the same prize, with clean room and in good conditions with towels and everything. But this one, no toilet, curtains dirty , with holes, shower just like cabib and toilet in coridor. Hotel Gothard nearby is slightly more expensive, but normal

I can't believe no one has written a review on this place yet! 3 friends and myself arrived in Nice at 8:30pm in June 2009 and hadn't booked anywhere to stay. Given summer in Europe is crazy and we were doing it on a budget we took the first place we could find. 2 of us stayed with the backpacks downstairs while the other two climbed the stairs to see if there was a room available. When my friends asked at reception if there was a room available for four people he said no, and then saw the other two girls downstairs and said oh I thought you were with your boyfriends you girls can stay. From memory I think it cost 120 euro for a quad room. We were kind of uneasy about his comment but just laughed it off while he showed us to our room. Upon entering the room we noticed that there was what appeared to be blood in the bathroom and on the floor. We just reminded ourselves it was only 1 night and went out to find dinner. The neighborhood was quiet. I didn't feel unsafe but my friends did. When we returned we found prostitutes outside the hotel. We quickly went back to the room, baracaded ourselves in by pushing our backpacks against the door and spent the night in our clothes we had traveled in for 10 hours for fear of having a shower in the blood and wore shoes so as not to touch the blood on the floor. Did not hop into the bed either. Prostitutes yelling from the street and the four of us spent the night in fear the creepy man on reception/owner would sell us into the sex trade like that movie Taken. All in all, safer than sleeping on the street but not for longer than a night and only if your desperate.
