We stayed 2 nts, retracing Dad's WWII footsteps in Southern France. Nice hotel, perfect location on a quiet street that's just a quick walk to the Promenade. Very clean. Very helpful staff. Did seem a bit high-priced.

This was a great place. it was modern and clean and friendly. The rooms are basic and the beds as they are in most european hotels are standard double size - not something we are all used to now we all have king size beds at home! still it was comfortable! bathroom bright and clean and shower works fine. nice roof terrace to go and chill out on. Good quality breakfast the normal continental style with cereal, fruit, cold cheese and meats and croissants. It is a quiet location with no problems from street noise.

Definitely Recommend.

Room Tip: The loft rooms have a very sloping roof so if possible try and avoid. room number 9 was good becau...

Short trip to Nice was accented by this great little hotel. Located close to the Promenade and the old city, clean rooms and bathrooms, well provided continental breakfast, and terrific staff. Friendly, professional, and always helpful, the staff was great and had answers to every question. While we were only there for three days, I would recommend them highly and will return for a future visit.

This is a small budget hotel with 19 rooms, 5 rooms on floor 2 are attic rooms which have low sloping ceilings above the beds not good if you are above 3ft tall, the only 3 fairly decent rooms are on the 1st floor at the front but all rooms have no flare ( just adequate ), the hotel 3 star rating is generous but it deserves it purely and only because of the hotel staff whom are VERY HELPFUL and professional and the hotels position is great, 7min walk to promenade / 5min walk to pedestrian area where there is lots of restaurants and shops / 10mins to train station for trips to Cannes and Monaco.

Room Tip: Don't have room on 2nd floor, hotel is sleep only.

Hotel les Cigales is a perfect hotel for any traveler who likes to spend most of their time seeing the sights but also have a safe & clean home base to come back to.

Pros:
very clean, especially the bathrooms as they look like they have been recently retiled, clean grout, etc...
quiet - this part of town is much quieter than the tight streets in old town or even some of the busier areas in the city
location - the location is really great... as others have noted, its 5 minutes from the row of all the public and private beaches in Nice, 5-10 minute walking to any bus or train transportation (if you wanted to take a day trip outside the city), and a 10 minute walk to just about any great restaurant or shopping in the city. There is also a very clean grocery store right across the street and several small cafes close by where you can get your morning croissant and cafe o'le.
staff - the staff was incredibly helpful and the woman who worked during the day has great English. She booked a rental car for us through a car service that was 30-40 Euros / day cheaper than the bigger companies
accommodations - there is a lovely (and sort of hidden) outdoor patio at the hotel where you can go have a coffee, do some morning yoga, or have a sunset bottle of wine. We loved using this space

Cons:
space - this is not the hotel for you if you want to hang out in your room all day. The space is quite small and the beds are quite average, but it does the trick if you plan to explore during most of your stay

Room Tip: As for a room on a high up floor, not on street side. The court yard is very quiet so if you could f...

Our first hotel on our first trip to France. Selected by using Trip Advisor. The staff ( especially Elaine!) was courteous and met our every request including an adaptor for electricity and a corkscrew so we could have a bottle of rosé on their small but relaxing terrace. Easy walking distance to most places we wanted to visit. Breakfast at 11€ was not a good value.

Our well appointed room had everything a traveller could want. The staff were extremely welcoming and the breakfast set us up for the day. We specifically liked the roof sun terrace, where after a manic day of site seeing, we could unwind with a bottle of chchampagne.
