We booked Hotel Rex based on the Trip Advisor reviews and would best summarise our 2 night stay as follows:-
1. Excellent location and is central to the old town, restaurants, bars, shopping, beachside promenade, with the railway station and other public transport also within easy walking distance
2. Owners are excellent hosts and go out of their way to make you feel welcome i.e. help with luggage, provide a map / instructions on Nice and will readily assist with any query one may have
3. Room (we were in room number 3) was a satisfactory size (by French standards), clean, had free wifi and was adequately furnished
4. Price (85euro’s – breakfast not provided) was extremely good for a double room in relation to the general cost of accommodation in Nice
1. There is no hotel parking available which causes problems with the dropping off of luggage in particular. Parking is available at one of the nearby parking stations at a cost of 23euro’s per day, although if checking out early (and not on a weekend), it is possible to drive the car to the hotel entrance to load luggage
2. To get to the hotel reception, you need to access two flights of stairs and dependent upon where your room is located, there could be a further flight of narrow stairs to climb. Carriage of luggage could present problems
3. Bathroom was incredibly small
4. Air-conditioning in room did not work adequately
5. Floor boards in room squeaked when walking
6. Bed was hard and the pillow provided little support
In conclusion, it’s really a matter of weighing up your needs and expectations, as if you are looking for an inexpensive centrally located hotel (without any frills) and do not have an aversion to stairs or issues with the car parking, then this would probably suit. Personally, I would consider paying a little more for a hotel which provided slightly better quality amenities.
