The first thing I'll remember about this hotel is the extremely friendly staff - I stay a lot in different hotels and the staff at Best Western Alba is one of the friendliest and kindest I've ever met; as I was obliged to use crunches during my stay, they were more than helpful and doing all they could to make my stay easier.
Even the room was suitable for people with mobility impairment. Easy access to shower, bathroom wide enough and many grap bars. The room was beautifully decorated, spotlessly clean and super quiet even if it was facing the main shopping street in Nice. There was also a minibar/fridge, coffee/tea making facilities and free access to wifi was included.
The location of the hotel is definitely super, very close to the shopping, restaurants, public transportation (tram basically in front of the hotel) and within a short walk to the beautiful seaside.
I'd definitely recommend the hotel to everyone and also to people who have mobility impairments (there is one step in front of the hotel you need to take but otherwise no problems to get around if you can get up from the wheelchair because the lift is somewhat small and most wheelchairs won't fit in it). It really makes a difference to stay at a hotel like this where the staff makes your stay definitely fantastic and the room is all you can ask for!

This is an affordable, nice hotel located right on the Avenue Jean Medecin and half way between two tram stops. The free WiFi works well and the staff were very friendly and helpful. The only negative was the fact that tobacco smoke from the neighboring room was able to enter our room through the ventilation duct in the WC. The main railway station is a five minute walk away, as is the stop for the 99 express bus to the airport.

This hotel was central and good value for money. It was 5 minutes from the train station and the trams were just outside. It was on the main shopping street but was very quiet inside.
The staff were lovely and helpful.
The room was a good size and very clean.
Breakfast was excellent with a good choice of hot and cold items. The pastries were divine.
This is a good hotel and well priced for Nice.

Arriving by train in Nice, we were delighted that the Hotel Alba was only 5 minutes walk away from the station on the main shopping street of Nice. Receptionist very welcoming and helpful giving us a map, suggesting places to visit and forms of transport. Room overlooked the street which was surpisingly quiiet at night despite the trams. Very clean and comfortable facilities, minibar, tea and coffee, in-room safe. We did not have breakfast in the hotel but had our coffee and croissant at one of the nearby cafes. The hotel is 15 minutes walk from the Place Massana, flower market and many restaurants. There are several restaurants within 5 mintes walk - try those by the side of Monprix (which also has excellent food and drink supermarket) for real French value. The seafront only 20 minutes away. Buses are only 1 euro however far you travel and are excellent for visiting the beautiful villages nearby e.g Vence ,St Paul de Vence and Villefranche. Take the train to Monaco. We stayed 6 days and filled every moment, this was a superb base from which to explore the Cote d'Azur.

Room Tip: The rooms overlooking the street had a better outlook, those at the back just overlook other buildin...

We were located in Room 107 which was right above the front desk looking out at the street. It was remarkably quiet when the windows were closed and they let in a nice breeze when open. Overall our stay was very good and trouble free. The front desk was very helpful keeping out bags for us, helping us book a tour etc. But the room, as I said in my Title, was very dingy. The walls had marks on them, and in one location quite a big shadowy, smeared mark. The bed was very comfortable and clean, so I took it at a one off. I would stay there again, but not in this room. Everything was clean.

Overall acceptable for our purposes as we didn't spend much time in our room!

Our needs are quite specific as my husband is a wheelchair user and I had e mailed the hotel directly to explain. The difficulties in the hotel for us were known to the staff who did their utmost to accommodate us. Well done to all at front of house. As my husband is able to stand we were able to use the small lift to take the cases as well and the wheelchair was left near reception. The lift is quite small although the staff know the dimensions so access can be checked. There is also a small step to gain access from the street. Great bathroom with walk in shower and toiletries. A big advantage having a kettle to make a hot drink. Room size quite adequate and kept spotlessly clean - we even had a change of bed linen on a 4 night stay. Easy access to the fully accessible tram. 4 euros buys a day go anywhere ticket including the buses and getting to the airport which can be purchased at the airport or from the Veolia office opposite the station. Bus 23 always has ramp access and makes getting to terminal 1 of the airport easy. From there an excellent accessible shuttle bus connects with terminal 2. Wonderful Lebanese restaurant (Socrate) just around the corner who were very helpful and served great food too. We didn't use the breakfast room at the hotel as we bought lovely breakfast foods from Monoprix supermarket just across the street where we were spoilt for choice. We bought tickets to the carneval parade and also the Battle of the Flowers on line from UK and wheelchair user plus carer have a reduction and also a space with excellent visability. Menton Citrus Festival is also worth a visit - easy by train and again wheelchair users do not pay to see the display in the park. We would definitely use the hotel again to travel along the coast.

Room Tip: 103 has a walk in shower
