“Comfortable 2 star in goog location”
Reviewed 25 February 2007

This is a very comfortable 2-star hotel in a good location. Our room was on the small size, simply furnished but perfectly adequate. Everything was new, my guess it that it has been refurbished recently. Spotlessly clean. Very friendly and helpful staff. Our room was at the side of the hotel, a bit of noise about 7 am from bins being put moved, otherwise very quiet.

The only downside was the breakfast, very efficiently run, the usual French bread and croissants, but the coffee and tea is provided from a machine and not very good. However there are plenty of cafes in the immediate area as an alternative.

We booked this hotel through Alpharooms after reading the reviews on Tripadvisor. We were not disappointed.

We got the 98 bus from the airport for 4 euros which takes you to the centre of Nice which takes about 20 mins.

We wasn't sure what time the room would be available but arrived at 10.45 am and got our room straight away (Room 409). The reception staff was very welcoming and the room was spotlessly clean and very nice - the picture on the web doesn't do it justice.

The breakfast consisted of plain and choc croissants with rolls, tea, coffee and juice which were very fresh and nice.

The staff gave us lots of tips of places to visit and best ways of gettng there.

This hotel is a perfect base right in the pedestrian zone with abundance of shops, bars and restaurants. The old town is close by and worth a visit with all the small boutiques and restaurants as well as the flower market.

We travelled everywhere by bus and went to Monaco which is 1/2 hour ride a way. You can get a 4 euro tour pass and use it all day on all buses.

Everybody in the hotel was very friendly and everybody took the time to say hello.

Tea and coffee facilities in the room would have been nice however you can pay 1.50 euro and help yourself to tea and coffee from the breakfast area if you fancy an afternoon cuppa.

Word of warning..... dont buy cherries from the fruit shop opposite the Spar..... a punnet cost us £12!!!!!

We would definitely recommend this hotel

We booked this hotel based on TripAdvisor ratings, and arrived with high expectations.

The great: The room we stayed in at the back of the hotel was really quiet! We were pleasantly surprised that we could keep our window open and not be awakened by noise. Bathrooms are clean and basically nice; folks at the front desk are very helpful and gave us great advice. Nice lobby, great location, clean rooms.

The just-ok: Rooms are pretty cramped; beds are just ok - no box springs and close to the ground; very small "closet" space. Hair dryer was almost useless, but there was one. Breakfast is pastries and coffee from self-serve machines -- you can do much better at any one of the local cafes just steps from the hotel.

There was nothing horrible - we have stayed at another two-star hotel in Nice that was not as good. Just keep in mind that the star rating system in France is very specific to amenitites. This is a great TWO star hotel -- not lots of extras.

  • Liked — Good location, clean, helpful staff, some rooms very quiet
  • Disliked — Cramped rooms, mediocre beds
  • Tips/Secrets — Great for budget travelers, ask for rooms at back of hotel for quiet

We have now stayed at the Regence six times and we love it. It could not be in a better location. It is set right in the heart of the pedestrian zone in Nice. You literally walk out of the entrance and are surrounded by shops, cafes restaurants and street life! You do not need a car as everything is within walking distance. Less than five minutes to beach, ten minutes to the old town. Ten minutes walk to train station to take you to Cannes, Monaco, St Tropez - wherever you want to go.

The staff are really friendly and helpful. The rooms are basic (as you would expect for 2*) but very clean and a good size. Breakfast is continental but generous. The hotel is light and airy.

We go on lots of city breaks and this is by far the best hotel we have stayed in. Value for money - in UK this would be 3*.

  • Liked — Location and friendliness of staff
  • Disliked — NOTHING!!
  • Tips/Secrets — Take a travel kettle as a cup of tea in the room is nice

I stayed at this hotel in October and found it excellent. The location is perfect, right on Rue Massena, 2 minutes from the Promenade des Anglais and beach and then about a 10 minute stroll to Vieux Nice for the nightlife.
The rooms were a lot bigger than I expected and the bathroom was massive. We didn't experience any noise, I slept very well after a few too many kias!! Breakfast was ok, just enough to set you up for the day. They also have use of a car park at a nearby hotel for 10 Euros a day which is good value although I found it quite difficult to manoeuvre the car in and out of such a tight space! The staff were very friendly and even let us leave our bags until 5pm on our departure day which was really good. I would definitely recommend this hotel if you want to be in the heart of things in Nice and want value for money accommodation in a place where prices can be very over inflated!

We stayed at the Hotel Regence for three nights and to sum it up it was just brilliant! The staff were very friendly and helpful, the rooms were very clean and comfortable and the location was ideal, you could walk to the beach, old town and town centre and the bus and train stations very easily. There are numerous shops and restaurants in the vicinity to choose from too. For a two star hotel this is excellent value for money and could even be considered as a three star!

Stayed at the Regence 12-15 October. The hotel is in a perfect location for everything that you want to do in Nice. It is in the main shopping area which is also full of restaurants and cafes. Its also only a 5 min walk to the sea front and the Old Town. The rooms are small and very basic but not as bad as some people have suggested on here. There is a telly in the room which has bbc world and cnn news channels on it. The bathroom is also small, but is spotless and has a brilliant shower in it. All in all its a good value hotel for the price you pay for it and is ok for a short stay.
