My fiance and I have just spent 2 nights in the Best Western Hotel Riviera, I agree with other reviewers who found this very disappointing in comparison with other hotels in this chain. On the plus side, it is very centrally located for the train station and airport bus. Our stay included breakfast, a "welcome drink" (water, juice or a soft drink!!) and a "lunch box" each day (a sandwich, packet of crisps, bag of apple slices and bottle of water) - the latter was actually very welcome. Staff were reasonably friendly with one receptionist in particular proving helpful. On the downside, I had specifically requested a double bed when making the reservation through booking.com. Our room had 3 single beds. I phoned reception immediately on arriving in the room but was told the hotel was fully booked. The room was small and the third bed seemed to be rather an afterthought making the room even more cramped. There was a small balcony but this was covered in a sort of green baize which was saturated as it was raining pretty much non-stop during our stay. Thus if one used the balcony at all one left wet footprints all over the floor of the room. The room was dreary with no attempt at any warm decor. The location, although central, was, as pointed out by some other reviewers rather seedy (which seems to be the case in many cities around the main train station). I actually felt quite unsafe at night walking to and from restaurants despite having my tall well-built fiance with me! I agree with reviewers who pointed out that it is very unusual not to have a bar of any kind in a hotel. Breakfast was OK but we had stayed in another hotel on this trip in Provence which provided significantly more choice. This was my second visit to Nice and I'm not sure I'd be in a hurry to return - yes the apalling weather probably did effect my view of the city but, having stayed in the stunning Parc Regional de Verdon region on this trip I've decided I prefer countryside, stunning mountain views and small, charming French villages! If I were to return to Nice I would choose a different hotel.
