This hotel is good for the price, so you can choose it, but you have to watch out for some characteristics.
The people at the reception were really polite and had a good command of English. What annoyed me was that at the check-in they assured us the breakfast is included in the price, but at the check-out we had to pay 6 euro per person per day additionally. And the breakfast just wasn't worth it. 2 croissants per each and a little bread plus butter and cheese, coffee or tea - that was all.
The second minus of the service was that they didn't warn us that the Promenade - a key street for people with cars is blocked because of one of those Prom' parties. We had to wander around 2 hours before the police let us pass on a pedestrian street. It appeared to be the only way to reach the parking. And that is definitely something people with cars should watch out. The hotel itself does not have a parking lot. They use the garage of hotel Massenet, so you'll have to pay 10 euro per night. The price is not the problem though. The problem is that this parking is reachable only from the Promenade and when it's blocked for a party you will have to communicate with a lot of French policemen in French (their English is really bad).
The Regence hotel is situated on one of the busiest streets in Nizza - Massena. Numberless restaurants, street performers and tourists fill the street. It's lively and nice, but there is a noise, too, esp. if your room is looking at the street.
The room was clean but really small. We had booked the cheapest one and still - for a double room it was too small. There is a safe, hair dryer, TV and really good air condition. The Internet is not free though. 3 euro per 24 hours.
Generally I would recommend the hotel because most people in Nizza are there to experience the beach, the night life, the food, the show and not to stay all the time at the room.
