“Good for the price”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 September 2008

The location of the hotel isn't the best, the majority of Nice felt a bit unsafe actually, but for the price it's quite good. Its next to the train station if you're travelling to other locations. The room smelt a bit, not sure what it was...it was clean however!

Simple but clean hotel which offers good value for money. The hotel is a little bit out from the main part of town, but that is to be expected for the price.

Having said that, the hotel was only a 10 minute walk to the beach and was located only a few hundred meters from the train station.

Overall the hotel is a great option if you are traveling as a group on a budget.

Judging by the neighborhood, the lobby, and its relatively low-price, one can easily expect the worst from Hotel Trocadero. But all summed up, the hotel is quite acceptable.

My room (single) was extremely small but cozy - nothing but a bed and a TV set, though. The bathroom – which had no bathtub, only a shower – was impressively new and clean. There was a semi-covered hole on the wall right next to the bed (room 103 at least) with water pipes and every once in a while I could hear all sort of strange (and creepy) noises in the middle of the night. Actually, I could not understand how this was possible in a room that had been recently renovated and could be almost perfect.

Everything looked pretty clean, although I could spot a stain on the blanket on my last night there. The room had no special amenities like a mini-bar but had a safe which is always useful.

The breakfast served (6 euro, not included in the price) is extremely poor – cereals, milk, coffee, orange juice, croissants, bread, butter and nothing more. The breakfast room is quite ugly, without natural light and with some old furniture there – like they use it as some sort of basement.

Staff was very nice and helpful but I must notice that I was paying 95 euro on my last night there (super-charged Grand Prix du Monaco rate) and they didn’t allow me to keep my luggage on the hotel facilities after checking-out at 8 am. The lady kindly suggested I should keep my luggage on the train station lockers (8.5 euro rate).

Trocadero is located 2 minutes away from the train station and 15/20 minutes from the Old Village/beaches. If you are planning to stay in Nice for several days maybe you should try another hotel, but if you are visiting Cote d’Azur and using Nice as a base camp and all you need is a place to crash for 7 hours, then Trocadero may be a good choice - after all, you couldn't be closer to the train station.

After some of the negative things I read here I was a bit worried so I was delighted when I arrived to find that the whole hotel had been newly renovated. It was spotlessly clean and the staff were friendly. Quiet at night also so I slept well. I only paid 35 euros a night so definitely a bargain. My only complaint is that my shower water wasn't very hot on 2 out of 3 mornings.

One of the receptionists was incredibly rude and racist. The door to our room could not open one night we came back and he blamed us, we could only argue until he grudgingly let us stay in a hotel next door, which was so much better. Just one of those places which make your holiday so bad.

We spent two nights at the hotel Trocadero in Nice. We wandered in to see if they had a room available and the price. By the time we'd finished talking to the lovely lady behind the desk we would have paid anything she asked.

It was in a good spot a block from the train station - a long but lovely walk to the beach. Heaps of cheap restaurants to eat in the area.

Big simple room, with a nice blue bathroom. Huge opening windows.

Would definitely stay again.

This hotel came recommended from friends who had stayed at Trocadero when they couldn't find a hostel in Nice. For the price of 55 euros a night, Trocadero is tolerable. But in a beautiful location like the Cote d'Azur, I wish my boyfriend & I had upgraded to a better hotel.

Trocadero is shabby. There are no phones in the room, and barely any blankets on the bed. Other than a bed, there is no extra furniture. The bathroom is perfectly modern (a nice surprise) and it is a 2 minute walk from the Nice train station. This made it easy to go into Monaco and Cannes, but since it was a sketchy neighbourhood, I wouldn't have felt comfortable walking in the area late at night. The service staff are snobby and rude, and some of the rooms were being renovated starting at 8 am in the morning. I wouldn't recommend this hotel to anyone except college students looking for a cheap find.
