“Highly Not Recommended”
Reviewed 2 June 2014

First of all, we are welcomed by a not quite nice staff, I would not say he is rude but he is not helpful and always disappeared from the counter. This was quite inconvenience as the hotel required the guest to return the keys as they left the hotel and request the cards again when they come back.

The toilet was not renovated, do not trust the professional photos as shown in the booking websites as I thought they only showed the picture of the renovated rooms. There was no ventilation in the toilet and so you must close the toilet door after you used it. Towels provided were also unacceptable, they were grey in colour and looked very old, even they changed everyday, all the towels we received in the 5 days stay still looked the same.

The rooms also has a bad smell, possibly came from the carpet. Also, there were limited facilities, e.g. no kettle and no toiletries provided. Although they said the room is air-conditioned, the remote control was kept in the reception and only provided when you requested it.

Last but not least, the breakfast which charged at EUR8 each was overpriced. The French buffet breakfast only included 2 croissants, some cereals and unlimited white breads.

My wife and i and another couple who are friends of ours stayed for 5 nights in gp week. we usually stay just down the road in a international brand hotel , but when i tried to book in october this was full so i tried Trocadero as we had walked past in previous years and caught a glimpse of this. our room was on the 3rd floor and we had a shower as opposed to a bath which we preferred. room was more than good enough with a nice balcony. Helpfull staff and just a nice feeling greeted us everyday. Next year we will be certainly booking this again . Railway to monaco is within 100yds and also a main shopping road. yes you do get groups of youths about at night but not once did we feel threatened. The seafront is 20 mins walk away and we did venture there one night to visit the Hardrock cafe but being late at night we taxied back. Very convienient for the return to the airport by bus No99 at 12 euros each. we did not have breakfast here as there are numerous cafes just round the corner. see you next may guys and thank you to hotel trocadero for making our trip very pleasant.

Room Tip: wifi can be a bit hit and miss sometimes.

We stayed here for 6 nights. My expectations were not high as this hotel was relatively good value. Ahead of our stay I wrote to the hotel on two occasions to verify a couple of points. I received a timely response on both occasions. Hotel was good, needed extra pillows etc which were delivered promptly. Highlight of our stay was the service received, particularly from Thomas. He was always cheerful, incredibly helpful with perfect spoken English. He even taught us some new French words to help us at the station. During our stay there way a train strike and he was able to offer us alternative transport options should we need them. He is a great ambassador for the hotel and left a positive impression on us all.

Very small rooms, but was comfortable. Very close to train station, shopping, beach and Promenade. Very friendly and helpful day and evening reception during the week. Only thing that left a bad impression was the bald night person working the desk today on May 24, 2014. We thought that our bill was paid off, but he was the rudest person we ran into in Nice. This person was rude and inconsiderate to my wife and myself and slammed the phone down when we asked him to call a cab to take us to the airport. All he kept saying was "three times", when we realized there was a misunderstanding and we cleared things up. He did not damper our trip there as Nice is such a wonderful city. I just wish our last impression of Nice wasn't this jerk.

We arrived in Nice after a long day on the train. The walk from the station is about a block or two away...very close, less than 5 mins. Check in was easy and quick and the gentleman at the front desk was helpful in offering directions. We were pleasantly surprised with the size of the room and the modern look. We had a large bed (2 singles pushed together) for my husband and myself and two singles for our daughters. Breakfast is not included so we picked up our own at one of the many available cafés. The bathroom was quite a decent size. Our only complaint was that there is no shower. There is a shower head that sits on the tub floor so it was a bit of a challenge. Bathing wasn't an option as there wasn't a stopper. The area seems a bit sketchy at first with groups hanging around on the street, but we were assured it was safe and had no issues. We walked to Old Town and the beach and it was a short 10 minute walk. There was a lot of shopping and many options for dining. We would recommend this hotel for its location and the good sized room. Another plus was that there was a laundromat across the street for those traveling with limited clothes.

Just spent three nights in the Trocadero which we used as a base to go to the Historic Grand Prix in Monaco. This hotel is about three minutes away from the train station which suited us as we travelled to Monaco on both the Saturday and Sunday - train service is quick and easy. The tram service was also only a few minutes from the hotel which took you to the beach and ran smoothly and regularly, tickets are purchased from a machine before you get on the tram, which you then validate on the tram itself.

The hotel is clean, staff are helpful and the rooms are fairly small but comfortable and perfectly adequate for the price - a hairdryer was provided but some shampoo would have been appreciated. Shower room was small but clean and perfectly adequate. Our bed was comfortable and our room on Floor 2 was very quiet even looking over the street. Good value for money in a city like Nice. Breakfast was served in the hotel, but in general probably just as easy to wander to one of the many nearby cafes most of which do a typical French petit dejeuner for between 7-8 euros.

We were able to leave our bags in the hotel on our departure day until we caught the airport bus at 6.30pm which was very helpful - overall Trocadero is a good choice if you don't want to spend a fortune.
