“Pretty good hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 August 2013

Room was basic but sufficient, it's on the small side but clean. Hotel close to rue Massena and promenade des anglais, just a short walk away so you have no lack of food choices. A little further from old town. Quite a walk there but nonetheless copeable. room was not completely soundproof, some slight noises could be heard but not loud enough to disturb us greatly.

We spent 4 nights here and actually enjoyed good service. The man on the afternoon shift (11am to 7pm) was very helpful. We asked him for help regarding our parking fine and he helped us through it and actually post the fine for us as well. The lady we encountered during the morning shift and another man during the night were also friendly and helpful.

All in all, would recommend this hotel.

We arrived in NIce early in the morning and after taking the bus from the airport along the 'prom' we found the hotel easily, however we were so very early for checking in. I went in and the first thing that I noticed was that the lobby/reception area was clean light and so cool in comparison with outside. The lady on reception could not have been more accommodating of taking our luggage, checking us in, or my very rusty french!!!! She was lovely, really was, as she rightly assessed we didn't have a clue as to where we were in relation to centre/sights etc, promptly got out a map and began to show us where to go what was there etc etc etc. The room when we came back from looking around Nice was clean and the hotel had accommodated our needs perfectly. Everywhere was clean, and although not the largest of rooms after a third bed had been put in for us was adequate in size for what we needed it for..........Sleeping and changing! The lady on reception showed us up to the roof terrace which was an absolute sun trap a pool up there would have been just bliss!!! The bathroom was clean and functional, lots of hot water, good shower and small bath of which I wondered its relevance initially but had both shower and bath every day!!! There was a mini bar/fridge in the room that was stocked with all the necessary bits and bobs if needed. Only one slight thing let this hotel down, the air-con in the room was really quite poor........For me the lizard, I was fine, however sharing with 2 others it did get stuffy and even with windows and curtains closed fan on setting 3 it still did not cool the room down to the level it should have been. Do not let the air-con/fan thing turn you off of this hotel its positives far outweigh the 1 negative I could find.

Have just got back from a 2 night stay in Nice and stayed at Les Cigales due to reading some good reviews. We were not disappointed we arrived at the hotel 1 hour before check in time and the lady on reception could not be more helpful,she pre checked us in and took our bags so we could walk round without the baggage. We arrived back some 3 hours later and were shown to our room which was spotless and very comfortable. The hotel is ideally placed on a quiet street not 5 minutes from the promenade or the busy centre which had all the restaurants and bars. For the price paid and the purpose of our trip I cannot praise this hotel and the staff enough and would reccomend it to anyone. Thanks to all at Hotel Les Cigales for making our trip extremely comfortable,this was our first trip to Nice an we will be back

It's very well located. 5m walking both to the beach and the touristic streets and 10-15m to the train station and old city

Room and bathroom size are ok, but the bed and furniture are too basic,old and and cheap.
For some reason they say the rooms are sound proofed which is not true. You hear the other rooms loud and clear from morning to night including their bathroom. The doors are really old and noisy to open and lock

As an anecdote, they also lie with the TV, it's not 52 and don't have Satellite reception with English channels. Not sure why they don't just omit this in the web

Overall, the feeling is of a cheap outdated vacation hotel in the beach, which at this cost is not what you would expect. There are better options in Nice at this price level

A good hotel that is not expensive. Easy walk to the promenade and not far from old Nice. We ate breakfast on the promenade. The hotel was very well Kent and the receptionist gave good information on restaurants and transport. Also located close to the pedestrian walk.

We rented two rooms here over the summer. The front desk staff was very friendly and helpful. The rooms were nice and clean with newly updated bathrooms. It is a short (about 5min) walk to the beach and about 1 min walk to restaurants and main strip . There is a rooftop terrace as well which is is rare in Nice. Perfect location and great value for the price. I would definitely stay here again if I go back to Nice
