In an ideal position on a service road at the Western end of Promenade des Anglais.
Check-in was very slow - more than 10 minutes in a very hot enclosed area with many people having to stand around.
Although opposite the end of the runway of Nice airport, the double-double glazed windows didn't let any noise in, although they also stopped any fresh air. And the air cooling unit just moved the air around, very noisily.
The airport closes down from midnight to 6am, so although I would have liked fresh air overnight, I couldn't open the inner window anyway as the handle had been removed (vandal or by intent I don't know as there was a hole where the handle should have been).
Door lock didn't appear very secure and the secondary chain didn't have a keeper so was useless.
Two lifts (each 6-8 people without luggage!) for a hotel that size meant that there was a continual throng of people standing around at reception on floor 3, and at the entrance on floor 0. And once one lift decided to jam 15cm below floor 0, then it was down to 1. Stairs were available but very little signage and it was only after queueing at reception for ages that we were told where they were (at the outer ends of the corridors).
Breakfast - yet more queueing, 10-15 minutes seemed the norm - only one member of staff and continually having to replenish stocks - one coffee machine failed leaving just 1. There were 4 orange juice dispensers but they emptied during breakfast so it was down to the same member of staff to replenish these, all the time the queues (and frustrations) getting longer.
Perhaps the queueing was built into the design as at no time were there more than 1 or 2 spare tables.
