“Great value for money and great location o”
Reviewed 6 May 2009

I've just got back from a day break in Nice in which we stayed at the Hotel Trocadero. The hotel is in a great location and is perfect for accessing the french riveria as it's a 3 minute walk from Nice train station. If you fly into into terminal 2 the hotel can be reached by getting bus 99, from platform 4 at the airport, to Nice train station. The journey takes around 30 minutes and you can buy a ticket on board for 4 euros. The ticket is a day pass so can be used for travel on buses and trams for the remainder of the day. Once the bus stops at the train station you will see a travelex on your right hand side. If you go down the steps next to this then you are on Rue de Rebulique which is where the road on which the hotel is situated.

The hotel was very clean and excellent value for money. The hotel is literally a 5 minute walk from the main shops and about 15/20 minutes to Nice beach. There are some restaurants around the hotel but the best place to eat is the old town which can be reached by following the main road of shops to the end. This is about a 20 minute walk. We ate at 'Le Pizza' in the old town which does amazing pizza and pasta. The restaurant is reasonable price and an average meal costs around £30 without wine.

The area around the hotel looks quite seedy but we didnt not feel vulnerable at any point. The hotel was cleaned every day and the stay were helpful. From reading previous views it appears that the hotel may have been recently refurbished as the bathroom was spotless and looked brand new. There was small tv in the room and the only english channel was CNN however you dont got to Nice to stay in your room. We didnt have breakfast at the hotel as we thought it was quite expensive at 6/7 euros. There are plenty of cafes around the hotel where you can grab a croissant and coffe for around 2/3 euros.

We went to visit Monte Carlo and Cannes for the day which are both well worth a visit. They both take around 30 minutes on the train and tickets are around 10 euros each. The train rides are lovely as they take you the scenic route along the coast. We didnt feel that there was much to do in Monte Carlo but enjoyed admiring all the lovely boats. There was lots more to do in Cannes and the boat trip to Saint Maugerite is a must. However, there are only two restaurants on this island so food can be expensive if you're looking for more than a sandwich. A baugette/pannini cost on average 7 euros throughout the riveria.

There is certainly lots to do in the french riveria and we wished we had more time to explore the lovely beaches at Eze etc. I would definitely recommend for a lovely realaxing break in the sunshine. The hotel is ideal f you're looking for a clean and cheap hotel in an excellent location.

I have no complaints about the room or the location, they were very good. Right in front of the Train Station & a comfortably spacious Quad Room & Bathroom and very clean too!!!! The upholstery was very nice - Bright Red !!! The lady at the reception also was very friendly!!!

The day before we were going to check out, we were told that we had to pay an extra 20 Euros for towels. So we went down to the reception and asked them to show us what was wrong on the Towels. The night before 1 of the girls accidently spilled some wine on one of the towels & we knew it was our mistake & were prepared to pay the cost for that towel!!! But the guy at the reception showed us marks on ALL the towels that only HE could see but none of us could even make out that there was a mark there. they said that the Laundry does not accept it. We said that if was such an issue, we would buy them new towels & give the Hotel, because offcourse this would be cheaper than 20Euro's, but they didnt accept that. Very very bad!!

Then after house-keeping cleaned our rooms the next day, we 1st checked our towels to see if they were clean and without any marks, and there they were...ALL the towels in our bathroom were Stained & marked with spots. so we took the towels down to the reception & asked them to change it. But the Guy at the reception said that, they purposely gave us the worst towels in the hotel & gave us a number of the person who did the House-keeping of the room & asked us to contact them if we wanted clean towels...how rude is that !!! Why whould we call them, we're the guests, the hotel should call them & get us new clean Towels!!

So that was a really bad situation.

A piece of advice for those going to stay at this Hotel - dont even think of using the Towels, they'll charge u for something u didnt do !!!

  • Liked — the spacious Bathroom !!!
  • Disliked — that they charged us for towels that were not even stained by us!

Its hard to write much about this hotel. Although there were no particular bad points to the hotel, the room was a decent size, it was clean and in quite a decent location, there is also nothing particularly good to say about the hotel either. The service was adequate and the prices fair. All in all on a budget its not a bad choice for a hotel. Just a few moments away from the main shopping street and about 15mins walk from the seafront, plus Nice train station is only about 50m behind the hotel making it easily accesible. At just 43 Euros a night, I would recommend staying in this hotel if you're on a budget. If you can afford more, Hotel Suisse looked nice.

I stayed at this hotel for the 4th time already and for the 4th time I wasn't disappointed. Yes in the high season the location of this hotel may look unsuitable to some visitors as it takes you around 15 minutes to walk to the beach. But for the low-season the location is perfect, close to the railway station which gives you quick and direct access to the other towns of the Cote d'Azur. Moreover the main street of Nice Avenue Jean Medecin, Old Town and the beaches are still quite close to be accessible on foot.
The prices for the low-season are very attractive - 35-40 euros per night, I never had any objections to the size of my rooms - it alwais was of the 2-stars standards, general state of the rooms and furnuture and overall cleanenness was good. To cut it short - I'd say Hotel Trocadero has a very high quality-price ratio for me.

Booked through a discount hotel website, I had a huge problem finding last minute accommodation in Nice, and this was the only place that was available! Room was ultra basic and not very clean, bed hard, pillows rubbish, Phone did not work after requesting specifically that I needed one in the room. Staff changed my room after my request on first night, and the 2nd room was exactly the same, only the phone DID work. I would definately not stay here again, and would definately not recommend this hotel. Pay the extra money and stay somewhere decent!

Great Hotel,

When I was booking this hotel, I was a little worried from the reviews on tripadvisor.com, but the hotel was great!!!

When we first arrived around 3pm, we were met by a fantastic member of staff, she was excellent very polite and friendly. We checked in easily and were offered our choice of room. There was four of us travelling together and we had selected a room with a double bed, but the receptionist kindly offered a four singled bedded room which was great for our group.

The room itself was very basic, with four beds and a tv (with CNN and BBC world being the only english channels). But the most important thing was the room was spotless, the carpet was clean as was the four single beds. The bathroom was fantastic clearly newly done, the image posted in the "travellers photo" section offers a clear picture of the bathroom, nice blue tile and again Clean!

The room had an air conditioner which was great due to the temperature in Nice. However on night while we were sleeping we heard a dripping noise only to see the unit was leaking water all over the wall and floor, however after turning the unit off, it never acted up again and when we used it later there was no problems at all!.

The room was cleaned each day, with beds made and towels changed each day.

The area around the hotel was a little rough in comparison to other areas in Nice but its nothing to worry about, We used to walk home around 1am and had no problems at all infact we found the locals to be friendly, indeed there is some homeless around the area but that is to be expected in any major city.

If you need to get to the hotel take the 99 bus from Nice airport and get off at nice train station, the hotel is a 30 second walk from there, but we heard no train noise at all during our stay. With regards noise; the hotel was a little noisy in the morning with guests moving around and slamming doors but it was ok.

The day staff were great but i must admit the night staff were not as nice, no smile or hello, but thats to be expected considering its 1am in the morning :) The hotel door was locked arounf 1am and if a guest needed to get in after this time, you had to ring a small bell to wake up the receptionist.

All in all, a good budget hotel and if Im going back to nice in december i will look it up.
