My daughter and I stayed at Hotel Les Cigales in Nice from 24 to 27 September. The Hotel was one of those recommended in the 'Rick Steves Provence & the French Riviera' travel Guide book and, following the advice in the Rick Steves book, by booking direct with the hotel and typing the code RICK, we received a 7% discount.
We loved the hotel and the staff. Les Cigales is located in a very pleasant part of Nice on a quiet street, just a few blocks from Promenade des Anglais and the beach front. It is also only a short walk to the train station or the city centre.
The hotel was spotlessly clean and well maintained. Our room was comfortable and adequately appointed without being opulent. Although overlooking the street (we were on the top floor), we slept well without being disturbed by any outside traffic noise. The airconditioner worked well and silently.
I notice that some other reviewers have mentioned that their rooms were a bit small.There is the option to pay a little extra for a slightly bigger room.We did this and our room was pleasantly spacious. Only the shower remained a bit small, but was no real problem.
All the staff that we encountered were friendly and welcoming. Veronique in particular was very helpful, and gave us maps and suggestions of sights to see, where to eat and how to get around Nice.
The hotel breakfasts were excellent and were in a cosy, peaceful little dining room.
We will definitely stay at Les Cigales again if we visit Nice in the future and highly recommend this hotel to fellow travellers.
