“Lovely accommodation and friendly staff”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 August 2014

A very convenient location near the Nice train station. Quite area, close to the center. The staff was very friendly, especially Norberto who gave us advice about good restaurants, best beaches near by and places to visit in town. He was very helpful at all times. Highly recommended.

I have just returned from a six night stay in the best western hotel riveria nice. I couldn't speak highly enough of the hotel staff, who all went out of their way to make our stay most pleasant. Offering us friendly advice on places of interest to visit, restaurant recommendations and helpful tourist advice re hiring taxis etc.
This helpfulness added to the location (beside the train station) really meant we got most value from our stay..making day trips to Cannes, Monaco and villefranche sur mer, and obviously nice itself.
Rooms were pleasant with large bathroom and with a mini fridge, safe and tea making facilities we could feel right at home!

A very convenient location, near the Nice train station. Although not in the best district in Nice, when you come out of the hotel, turn right and go down the road with all the trams, you will find yourself in the main shopping road of Nice. The room I stayed in was good, there was enough space to fit 2 large suitcases in, despite there being an extra twin bed in the room. There was a kettle in the room (something I did not find in the other hotels I stayed at during my trip) so you could boil tap water to drink, as there were not many supermarkets nearby. The bathroom was fine, although the sink did have a few drainage problems, but apart from that, the room was fine. The breakfast was simple with some pastries, cereal and lots of choice of hot drinks. Overall, a good hotel!

I have visited hotel riviera with my girlfriend just last week. I knew that we will arrive to Nice at 9AM therefore I write email to reception in advance if they could possibly accommodate us bit earlier than usual. I exchange few emails with receptionist and I had small hope for early check in. We arrived to hotel at 10:20 AM and person on reception said to us that our room will be available at 2PM I showed him my email communication with Norbert from reception and Norbert picked up our case and give us room immediately with warm wishes for nice stay. I want to thanks to Norbert for his prompt help and for our nice room. We had room to back of hotel so we had really peaceful and quiet sleep.

Room was nice, clean, size was ideal for three days. We really enjoyed stay in this hotel. Breakfast was good. Nothing heavy but enough for me. We had here typical french breakfast.

Location of hotel was good. You can get faster bus 99 for 6 EUR or bus 23 for 1,5 EUR. We chose bus 23 and we did not have any issues. For our trip to Monaco we chose train from close train station and roundtrip ticket for two was 14,5 eur but be prepared for busy train full of local people.

Staff of hotel were really polite to us. I really like french english. I can really recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: try to avoid room facing main street

A very nice older and quiet hotel, just 2 blocks away from the Nice train station. Clean rooms, a large washroom by French standards, and a sense of security once you enter the hotel. Reasonably priced and I would definitely stay there the next time I pass through Nice.

We stayed here for one night before our cruise departed. We supposedly got the largest room, but they stuffed 3 twin beds in it, making it very tight. A tourist bus was idling outside our first floor window for what seemed like forever in the morning. The included breakfast was very good. The staff was nice and helpful.

Smallist room, wardrode fits a suitcase and some carry one size pieces, friendly bi-lingal staff, smooth check in and internet worked well. On the Friday in the foyer was a basket of pastries you could snack on. Short walk from the rail station to the right. Breakfast was baguettes, pastries, assortment of jams, yoghurts, ham & cheese and an egg boiler if you wanted hot eggs. Coffee machine & an assortment of teas, fresh juices and some cereals, its 12 Euro each if its not included, plenty of other options nearby. Its a short walk to the main shopping strip - Avenue Jean Medecin and there's a few bakeries nearby. There's several small supermarkets also in the area, Casino is the largest - Supermarché Casino, 2 Rue Deudon, about a 10 minute walk south east of the hotel. There's a body wash/shampoo dispenser in the shower, the hot water pressure is great & the towels are on the thin side.
