“Great Location, lovely owners.”
Reviewed 8 May 2014

Stayed for 3 nights at this hotel. loved the location from the balcony you have a great sea view, plenty of restaurants, shops and easy walking distance to the old town and transport. Our room was spacious just some street noise at times, The hotel owners were great made to feel welcomed from the time we arrived, and were also very helpful, really lovely ladies. Will use this hotel again.

We have stayed here twice now, & will certainly be back. It is our little home away from home. Reina & Marion are lovely, warm & welcoming hostesses, making you feel like you are in their home & one of the family. They are attentive & helpful with all your requests. It is a shabby old place, full of European character, kept clean & proud. In the process of being renovated & updated, it is a perfectly located, unexpected gem, & we thank the ladies wholeheartedly.

Room Tip: Let the gorgeous ladies know your requests & be open to character.

We loved mama and daughter owners - very warm, ready to please, attentive... Location is beautiful with unbelievable patio... However, hotel is beat up and outdated, patio needs immediate attention, outside hallway stairs just scary with broken tiles and stairs. Our room was 2 stars the best but it had the view and we paid a very reasonable rate so i better shot up...

Room Tip: definitely with the sea view

We recently stayed at the Hotel Cresp. Although the room was European small, and the bathroom and shower were tiny, it was a great place to stay. We had the room that opens on to the rooftop area where we could sit and look out at the sea. It was beautiful. The woman and her mother who run the hotel were extremely helpful. It also has a "lift" so getting your luggage up and down is no problem. And best of all was the location! It is on the edge of the old town, next to the Opera House. Everything you would want to see is within walking distance. Also buses are close. I stumbled onto this property and couldn't have been happier.

Room Tip: Try to get the room that opens onto the roof top garden. You can leave your door open and feel the...

We took the bus from the airport and alight at Albert bus stop. It is about 5-10minutes walk. It is in the old town next to the opera where all the happenings are. There are morning market,lots of restaurants and you can go up the Castle Hill to scene the view of Nice.As what other reviewers said,it is housed in an old building with a very old but functional lift. It was peak season in Nice because of Bastille Day and we get a very good deal,considering that you all hotels facing the promenade are very expensive. This hotel has a beautiful balcony overlooking the sea and we saw fireworks there on Bastille Day! Marion and her mother are very friendly in giving suggestions and tips. The only thing is you might have a problem if you are a light sleeper because the curtain is very thin and room no 6 where we stay is facing a busy street. The room is basic but clean and spacious. Wifi is strong outside the room.

Centrally located in the old historic town. It occupies the third floor in a multi level old building.  Rooms are compact, some renovated & some with air cond. Also some rooms have very compact bathrooms like our #17 (13sf/1.2sm-need door open to change). So make sure you confirm your needs in advance. The patio overlooks the ocean with full view of the Promenade.  Service attitude is excellent trying their best to accommodate your needs. As expected amenities are limited -really sporadic WIFI (a real negative for us), frig, French TV only, kettle & cups & fan on request.  Main attraction in this location is the daily farmers market situated right on Rue de Francois de Paule - wide assortment of fresh food, spices, household items & flowers. There's a potpourri of ethnic restaurants to choose from all within easy walking distance. Two blocks to the Tram line takes you to the city centre shopping and train station.
If taking the bus(#98) from the airport to the hotel, it will travel by the ocean along the Promenade de Anglais. The stop to get off is just as it turns left off the Promenade. You will then see the Rue de Francois de Paule to your right. The hotel is less than 3 blocks right next to the Opera House. WIFI is not common at restaurants. For breakfast, we found WIFI at DS Delices & Coffee Shop near upper end(look for mosaic wall on ocean side).

Room Tip: If Air cond. or Bathroom size is important to you, make it known on booking.

The hotel is extremely well-located overlooking the promenade and next to the opera house. The building is old, in keeping with its location. Our room opened onto the communal shared balcony which was a great place to take in the view. We felt safe and welcome, the proprieters and staff could not have been more helpful.The room itself provided basic clean accommodation and had an authentic old style character,the furniture could have been described as rickety but the beds were comfortable. The hotel would not suit anyone looking for bland modern luxury, but with its kettle, fridge and basic kitchenette it was a haven enabling us to prepare simple meals. We enjoyed our 3 nights in Nice and I think the character of the accommodation, the fresh flowers in the corridor with books and magazines to borrow and the hospitality shown enriched our experience.
