“Nice is Nice”
Reviewed 17 July 2013

We booked with our friends for a 4 day trip to Nice and this was our 1st visit. The hotel was lovely and the rooms a good size. Glad we booked the superior room which had a lovely view of the gardens and a small balcony. Great location for restaurants and bars and a short walk to the train station. The staff were all very helpful - a special thank you to Sarah and Jean-Claude for providing me an extra 2 night stay when I was forced to remain in Nice due to a personal matter. Thanks also to Elie and the gentleman who was on the reception during the night for their help also with taxis's etc x We do hope to re-visit in the future.

Room Tip: Book a superior room.

Will not be returning to hotel Aria! The hotel is well located, close to the train station and near the Nice old town. However the rooms and hotel itself need to be majorly upgraded (especially for the price you are paying). General cleanliness was also questionable (eg in the main hallway cutlery was left on the floor for 2 days and the bathroom looked like it didn't have a proper cleaning, also looked as if someone had used the room beforehand). The room smelled of stale cigarette and looked old and tired, especially the furniture which was extremely worn. the walls also needed a fresh paint as they had marks and dents all over (extremely noticeable and such an easy fix which could go a long way). Would not recommend the breakfast, for 11 Euros looked like the typical fare you would receive at a holiday Inn. Just felt generally dirty, poor upkeep and just an over-night-only option, last minute kind of hotel.. (Not the place to linger)
Positively, they do offer luggage storage and free internet (which is very slow so surfing is very painful)
In general very disappointed in the hotel, particularly the cleanliness and overall experience.

I stayed at the Aria for 2 nights as part of a driving holiday around the south of France with a friend. It's perfect if you're looking for somewhere clean and comfortable and plan on spending most of your days by the beach or wandering around Nice. The staff were friendly and helpful and compared to other hotels in the area it's very good value for money. I'd also recmmend the breakfast - lots of choice and only 11EUR.

Room Tip: Request a room overlooking the square and you might be lucky enough to get a room with a big balcony...

Hotel Aria is a nice, classic-style hotel in the musicians area of Nice, near Mozart Park and the train station. It was a great location for exploring Nice or taking the train to the other towns in the south of France. Our room was large, but basic and we had a huge bathroom. There is a small elevator and WiFi is included. The staff was friendly and spoke English.

We stayed there for 2 nights in a bright room with 2 large windows with shutters onto a balcony facing the little square. Although there is some traffic from the street we slept really well closing the shutters. Great location, in short walking distance to beach, restaurants and shopping. Staff is very courteous, hotel is charming with very comfortable beds. The rooms have recently been updated in a very tasteful decor and with beautiful wooden creaky floors. Nice old fashioned lift with a gate. Good breakfast. Would very much like to come back there again.
