LOCATION. The hotel is located at the pedestrian and tram street - Avenue Jean Medecin, 10-15 minutes walk to the old town and the seaside and 5 minutes walk to the train station and a bus station of the shuttle bus to the airport.
ROOMS. Rooms are small but quite nice. Separate bathroom and toilet is a special feature. :) Free wi-fi is available. There was one problem during my stay (I've stayed for a week in March 2012). There were no hot water from evening till morning so I had to wash twice with cold water. Quite a challenge! A receptionist told me the problem had been caused by a group of about 30 German tourists that had arrived that evening,
BREAKFAST. The breakfast room is rather small. So once I could hardly find a seat at 7 am because of that group of tourists who occupied almost all seats. But I should admit it was only once. As to food, it lacks variety (no porridge, pancakes, etc.) but the quality is absolutely OK as expected. BTW all waiters (each morning they have only one) don't speak English.
STAFF. All receptionists are very helpful and hospitable. There were just once problem with documents. They didn't make my receipt even in spite of the fact I've asked them about it. Nevertheless the receptionist gave me the original paper upon my insistent request keeping just a copy for the hotel's accountants.
GENERAL IMPRESSION. There are some minor problems occurred but generally I liked the hotel and can recommend it if you can get a reasonable price. Frankly, comparing it with ibis Nice Centre Gare I cannot see any significant differences.
