“best value on promenade for location, service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 April 2014

My mother has mobility issues so I needed a hotel with an elevator and centrally located. Our room was as pictured... small, clean, quiet, and yes, dated. One small window, no view, but comfortable temperature. But at literally a third of the price of hotels just a block away on the promenade, and whuch I might add don't generally get good reviews for the rooms or food, it's a gem of a find. The staff was utterly wonderful not just for Nice, but for any hotel I've been to. English was very good, they were super-helpful in making plans. If I go again i'd definitely stay here unless it was a romantic getaway type trip, which would call for a different atmosphere. Two blocks in any direction gets you cafes, shops, and transit.

A note for my fellow American travelers.....if you haven't traveled in Europe before, please be aware of the relatively small size of rooms...you often may find your knee under the sink while sitting on the toilet or may have to step into the tub to close the bathroom door! Just be prepared for it and go with it... you're not going to be spending that much time in the room, and service is way more important which is a standout at this hotel.

My seventh stay at Hotel Regence which ticks all the boxes for the solo traveller on a budget. On a lively pedestrian street of cafes and shops it's safe early till late. Near old town, seafront, main square, has great connections, to trams, buses, trains and airport. In clean, comfortable room overlooking the street, am not disturbed by noise, it's winter and relaxing. The entire staff friendly, welcoming, professional, helpful, I cannot praise them too highly. When I asked for BBC on my room TV, someone was thoughtful enough to make it BBC 1 Scotland and BBC 2. So I feel at home as well as on holiday.

We just stayed when passing through Nice for 2 nights in May 2013. We were independent travellers on our big Europe OE and had a couple of bags in tow. Easy transfer from airport via bus and a short pleasant 10 minute with bags walk from bus stop. Close enough to walk to major attractions. Easy walk to modern shopping, castle hill, markets, old town, and eateries. We did walk to train station when we left and it was a brisk 35 minute.
Lots of eateries close by, area felt safe. Room nothing flash at all but clean and adequate and for the money we felt good value.
Would stay again for a quick stop over, but wouldn't rate it as a romantic getaway - you have to pay a lot more in Nice for that!
Staff were particularly helpful and pleasant and spoke very good english which was a bonus for us. We did not eat at the hotel but their breakfast did not look inspiring - you are better off going down the street a door or two or go to the markets :-)

The hotel price for the location and amenities is very good. The location of the hotel is near the beach and a lot of eateries nearby. The room and bathroom was very spacious. Only issue was that our room couldn't be locked from the inside of the room and that though one of the days we placed a 'Do not disturb' sign outside the room, room service still came in to clean the room. The hotel breakfast was not very good, would recommend better and cheaper breakfast in restaurants nearby the hotel.

We booked this hotel based on TripAdvisor reviews, and found it even better than ratings others had given it. The location was fantastic: our window overlooked the street, so much of Nice's entertainment and dining was outside the hotel. Notwithstanding, it was very quiet and the staff very helpful.

Nothing to write home about, but great location near restaurants and bars, as well as walking distance to the beach. We walked from the train station as well. Felt safe in the area, and had no issues with noise. Room was clean enough, but we didn't spend much time in the room. Served its purpose, as the price and location were most important to us.

This hotel is in a great location, and it's relatively affordable. The rooms are a reasonable size and clean but a bit old. The service was good, but the internet was weak. The breakfast was basic--a basket of bread and croissants with spreads, as well as juice, tea and coffee. Overall a very good value if you aren't looking to break the bank.
