“Excellent hotel”
Reviewed 27 June 2014

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay in the Parisien. The rooms were clean, bright and very tastefully decorated. The location is excellent. The best part of our stay was the staff. They were extremely friendly and helpful and certainly went the extra mile. Would recommend this hotel to anyone!

So glad we chose to stay here! Our group of 6 girls from NI couldn't have met with a better reception on arrival, the English speaking staff were more than helpful at every opportunity. The hotel felt homely and the rooms were much nicer and cleaner than some 3/4 star hotels i've stayed in before! The hotel is exceptionally well located with the train station just across the road and the tram less than a 15 minute walk away. We encountered both air and rail strikes in our week away but neither were able to put the dampers on our holiday thanks to the hotel staff and their assistance with bus routes etc. I have read some poor reviews on here but these people can't have stayed in the same hotel as us!! P.S. We got ripped off by a taxi driver called Franck. Watch him.

Room Tip: I stayed in room 15 which had a beautiful little balcony - coffee and a croissant on the balcony was...

Hotel was efficiently run and clean and we found the staff friendly and welcoming with very good English. Wi-fi worked perfectly in our room on second floor. We only had breakfast there on the last day as we were leaving early, usually we had coffee and croissants in one of the many local cafes around the not to be missed Liberation food market which is a few minutes walk away. Hotel is 10 mins walk from station ( less if you take the rather scary tunnel which runs from the road straight in front of the hotel under the railway line). You can pick up a tram at the station or Liberation ( which seemed much less busy). I think this is a well priced,well situated hotel in a very expensive city.

We were a little hesitant when booking our stay here due to some other reviews but in the end, our stay was fine and I guess by Nice/Cote d'Azur standards quite ok for this price.

The location of the hotel is good for travelling, as Nice Ville train station is only a five-minute walk away and lots of fast-food places, supermarkets, bakeries, etc. are in the area. The guy who runs this place was nice and helpful and speaks good English. We paid some extra money to "upgrade" our room to a "bigger" one that also included a fridge (standard rooms don't have one) but the room was still really small. Although it was clean, some of the furniture was a little dated (like the table or the fridge). There was only one available plug in the room (the other two are used by the fridge and the TV) and the extra plug inside the hairdryer didn't work due to a slack joint.

We stayed for three nights in the Parisien and were quite pleased with it. It is a very small hotel, the rooms are small and the reception area is too so it is not the kind of place you would relax and chill out in. But if you are only staying a short time (as we were) and only use your hotel to sleep in, well, it will do quite nicely!
It is very close to the train station, about 5 mins on foot. It is about 15 mins walk from the sea and beach and about 10 from the old town. The neighbourhood is quiet and safe.
The service was good, the rooms were spotless and despite what some of the previous reviews said, the wifi was excellent throughout - and free! oh, and again despite the other reviewers, we found all the staff to be utterly polite.
So if you are looking for a clean, cheap, no frills hotel... the Parisien will do you just fine!

I booked a room for 4 nights which was due to include breakfast. We arrived after midnight but did not think it would be a problem cause of this hotels 24 hour reception - wrong. The door was locked when we arrived and we kept banging and knocking on it to no avail. After calling the number written on the door we kept getting a voice message. After standing on this dodgy street at 1am for a while, eventually we had to stop a random man on the street to ask him if he could decipher the French voice message for us. However luckily on his phone it got through (we didn't know the french dialing code which had to be put in before the number) and a man who had obviously just woken up opened the door for us.

He started a problem straight away claiming we hadn't paid for breakfast even though I had a reservation form saying we had. He agreed to give us it tomorrow but we would need to speak to the 'boss' tomorrow about it.

The next morning after having the breakfast, we had to speak to the owner. He started claiming in a frantic and rude way that the website we booked on made a mistake and we weren't due to get breakfast. I obviously disputed this and said that even if they made a mistake you still have to give your customers breakfast as this is what my reservation says and was one of the reasons I chose this hotel. He didnt react well and got his calculator out and started going through figures of how much he was making on the room (he started off with a €70 figure, then kept rattling it down for various reasons, including a 20 percent website fee and €14 for breakfast - although don't know how a bit of bread and two croissants is costing him that!). After he went through his salesman technique I simply said 'i dont care how much you're making, we're owed breakfast' and he absolutely lost it. Asked me if he was speaking Chinese, said to us we can leave the hotel right now if we wanted (didn't want to waste my few days in nice changing hotels.)

After a lot more arguing and hassling I got one more breakfast, so we had 2/4 breakfasts even though I paid for 4. However obviously arguing on holiday is not nice and dented the first morning. A horrible, arrogant owner who would rather save a couple euros on a measly breakfast than please his customers.

Furthermore there is no lift, so needed to walk up 4 flights of stairs every time (with luggage when we arrived as well) and the wifi is non existent in the rooms. Room was ok, bed was uncomfortable. But please don't stay here unless you like arguing!

We stayed at Hotel Parisien for 7 nights. We chose it because of its proximity to the Nice Ville Railway Station, about 10 mins. walk. From the railway station you have to go down 2 lots of steps and use the tunnel under the railway line to get to it. The hotel is small, clean, quiet and has been recently renovated. The rooms and common areas are very attractive. Each group of rooms (4-5) is closed off from the stairwell by a door, making it very quiet. Our room faced the street but traffic noise was never an issue. There was hardly any traffic after about 8pm. We had TV and air conditioning which we needed at night. The room was very clean, towels and sheets were changed every 2 or 3 days. The free Wifi worked OK in the reception area. We did not take breakfast which cost 7 euros per person. There are many bakeries in the area, we bought fresh baguettes and made our own breakfast. No electric kettle but we had an immersion heater. Reception was very friendly and helpful but they forgot (or were asleep) to give us a wake-up call the morning we left - that's our only criticism. It's a bit of a hike to the centre (about 20 mins. to Place Masséna) but the tram is just nearby. A ticket is 1.50 euros and is valid on the buses, too..

Room Tip: We had a twin room on the 2nd floor (No. 22 I think) which reception said was the best room in the h...
