“The hotel is overpriced”
Reviewed 16 September 2013 via mobile

We stayed at this hotel for 2 nights. The only plus of this hotel is location. It is located right on Kassebaum square within walking distance to the beach, shops and railway station. But the quality of the hotel is very average. For sure if you always stayed at hostels, you may find this hotel good. But the room was too small. If you would place your suitcase on the floor, you will not have enough place to move. The bed was ok, but still something was wrong with it. The shower was really to small. There was not enough space to move in the shower. And the water as on the floor. The breakfast was 10 euro and it was just a jam will roll. If to compare you can go out of hotel and have great breakfast with eggs for 10-12 euro. And the last but not the least. The hotel is a bit dirty. Well, it looks like being clean, but you understand that it needs serious renovation. For 100 euro per night you would definitely find better place to stay at nice.

Everything you need in Nice is within walking distance of this lovely hotel. The beach, the old town, the train station. We were even lucky enough to have a Jazz festival minutes away from us during our stay. The staff are friendly and the rooms are clean and cosy, if not a little on the small and hot side, but there are fans and a lovely little balcony. We will definitely return and i would highly recommend this to anyone.

The Hotel is perfectly located, 2 minutes to main shopping street, 7 minutes to beach, 5 min to the old town. The room is small but the bed big. Clean, towel changed daily. Staff very friendly and helpful, 24hrs reception. The room gets very hot (no aircon, but a fan) and it is too noisy outside all night to sleep with open windows->I had earplugs. All in all would book that Hotel again, due to perfect location, clean room and good value for costs.

Hotel Acanthe had a great location right in the middle of Place Massena and near to beaches in Nice.Commuting around was a luxury from there and good choices of eateries and sightseeing places to do.

Staff was very friendly & best thing was could speak & understand English, the hotel rooms were cleaned daily to the best quality.

Morning breakfast included was Croissant, Bread, Juice & Tea/Coffee as you like, was sufficient for a decent breakfast.

This is a good budget decent hotel with ideal location. Didnt have any issues overall -:)

Really cheap hotel, so what can one expect? Our room was tiny, but we did have a tiny balcony to go with it. The room smelled a bit, but since there was no a/c one had to keep the window/balcony door open anyway, so it really didn't make a huge difference. The bed was better than expected, although 190x140cm is quite small for a double bed. The toilet-shower is tiny, but like the rest of the room, nice and clean.

Free wifi, friendly service and a pretty cheap breakfast were some of the nicer things about staying here. Sadly the rooms had no soundproofing whatsoever, and I can imagine lighter sleepers will have a hard time catching a whole night's uninterrupted sleep here.

With just 10-15 euros more per night one can find a hotel in the same area with better value, though, and I would suggest paying just that small bit more.

We stayed one night, and it was perfectly adequate. We had an interesting room with a round bay window, maybe a bit larger than some, to judge from other reviews. The hotel is very central which is very convenient but it was a bit noisy. At this time of year we weren't looking for air conditioning, so didn't notice the lack of it. The room and bedlinen were clean, the bathroom small but clean, and plenty of hangers in the wardrobe. Breakfast was typical French: coffee, fruit juice and croissants and not expensive. The reception staff were very helpful and pleasant, finding us somewhere to eat and passing on messages overnight so the new young woman in the morning knew our needs. All in all a good basic base for a short stay. Not sure whether our room was worth the extra (other smaller rooms seemed a bit cheaper) but we were probably paying for the location, and other nearby posher hotels were charging a whole lot more.
