Hotel Regence
Ranked #43 of 203 Hotels in Nice
Reviewed 23 September 2013

The location of this hotel could not be beaten for a short break. In the 3 nights we stayed we never had to walk more than 2 minutes home at night. As you can see from the photographs it has a very attractive reception/lounge area. Unfortunately when you go through the door to the corridors where the rooms are situated it changes dramtically. Although clean the corridors are drab with low ceilings and 70s style red carpet. My main complaint was the room itself. I wasn't surpised it was small (this is France) but it seemed to lack charm and the layout didn't utilise the space very well. The bathroom was a decent size and very clean, although there is no bath,just a shower(nice and hot). The TV had BBC 1&2 on it, rather bizarrely the Scottish version, which was very welcome. I'm puzzled by complaints about breakfast. It is a perfectly normal French continental breakfast i.e. one croissant, one roll, one pain au chocolat, tea or coffee and juice. I agree it's not much but seeing how much the French eat for lunch I can understand it. Wi-Fi is available for 1E per 24 hours. The staff are very good and all speak english well

We planned Nice and Hotel Regence to be just a quick stop on our way to Italian Riviera, but because the hotel was so fairly priced and had a day and a day and a day more to extend our stay, we decided to stay in Nice almost a week!

Regence is located in Rue de Massena, which has nice restaurants and bars all over, and also nice shopping possibilities! The beach is almost around the corner, and you can find Chanel, LV and so much more just a few steps away. The street starts from the Massena square, where you cand find the tram stops and your way to Old Town or anywhere else.

Hotel itself is clean and simple, room had a big comfortable bed and spacious bathroom with good shower. Definitely recommend if you wanna explore Nice and its beach!

Great location for exploring Nice. We asked for a quiet room, and were given one at the back- couldn't hear any noise from the street at all.
5 minutes walk from the beach, easy reach of the bus stops to get to/from the airport if you want to keep costs down and avoid paying for a taxi.
Room was clean, comfortable and basic. Very minor niggle is that the hair dryer was broken in the room (but still functioned) and it wasn't exactly very powerful, so if you have long hair, take your own!

I would definitely stay here again for a summer holiday. If I were going again at a time when the weather wouldn't be so good, I'd get a hotel with more stuff to do/going on.

stayed there in Sep 2013 with 2 friends and we had a fantastic experience!
Room was good size and clean. Excellent location, easy access to the beach, train station & bus stops and lots of restaurants and shops at your doorstep.
All staff was VERY friendly and helpful. We would definitely stay there again. Big thanks to Alexandre and the rest of team that made our stay in Nice even more enjoyable!

Room Tip: our room was on 3rd floor - very spacious front room can be a bit noisy as lots of restaurants down...

My Mum & I have just returned after 1 week @ The Hotel Regence, it was great value. It's location is so close to the Tram line & the Place du Massena, Old Town, everything is so accessible. Every which way you turn when you leave the Hotel there are Restaurants & Shops, so no shortage of places to eat nearby. Although you have to walk further to find the more authentic french restaurants and away from the Pizza/Pasta Houses.... It's a bit like Little Italy! We knew in advance from previous reviews that the rooms were going to be on the small side and that breakfast was limited to breads & juice. Our room 306 was perfect, at the back of the hotel, plenty of place for 2 large suitcases (women never travel light!) and it was absolutely spotless. There are any amount of places to go for breakfast if you want outside the Hotel but we found it was sufficient to start the day. The staff were exceptional, in particular Maria and Alexandra, they were so helpful & always smiling, they couldn't do enough for you. Of note: The Hotel was fully booked when we were there yet it was refreshing that the staff actually remembered what room you were in when giving you your room key when you returned in the evening without having to ask you. In summary, if you are looking for a CLEAN hotel with HELPFUL FRIENDLY staff in the center of Nice that isn't going to cost you a fortune look no further. Oooh & they have air-conditioning & a lift! I just hope I can get a room the next time I am booking a room here.
