My family spent 8 nights at this lovely apartment. Our experience was 95% positive. Everything one needs for a short stay was provided. Moreover, upon arrival there were milk, butter, and eggs in the fridge and coffee and tea in the cupboard. With modern furniture, a comfortable pull-out couch, and a good air conditioning unit we were right at home. It is a 5-minute walk from the sea and a 10-15 minute walk to Old Nice. I would rent this apartment again.
A few negatives: couldn't get the TV to work properly, the elevator and dishwasher were out of service.
The apartment and the attention of the owners and managers exceeded our high expectations from TripAdvisor. Everything we needed for our two-week stay was provided, and the up-to-date condition of the apartment enabled us enjoy our time "at home". Food markets are within a short walk, and access to bus and train for exploring the Riviera are within walking distance. Our stay was one of the best we have experienced in our world travels.
Really enjoyed our week's stay. Wonderfully peaceful even though on the very central location of Gambetta. The apartment was well equipped and clean. Enjoyed the balcony overlooking garden area mornings and evenings. Air con quiet too. The owner Bobbie was very helpful and quick to answer/resolve any queries. Definitely would recommend a stay at this lovely apartment.
The apartment is perfect for a couple with everything you need for an enjoyable stay in Nice. There's an excellent bakery/patisserie and well stocked supermarket a couple of doors away, including a fresh fish stall. Not far from good restaurants and the old town. There's plenty to see and do in Nice itself with the Matisse Museum a bus ride away, the chateau and old town, museums, and a wonderful old opera house. There's a well stocked folder in the apartment with plenty of recommendations.
Both bus and train services are excellent and not expensive. Bus tickets [all journeys cost 1.50 Euros except for the very expensive airport buses No.98 and 99 which are 6 Euros - use the frequent local No.23 bus from Terminal 1 which stops at Gambetta and, if necessary, the free shuttle bus (Navette) between the two terminals if your flight is to/from T2.]
Be aware that you have to pay an additional 70 Euros for housekeeping (cleaning and linen) plus an extra check-in meet and greet charge if you arrive late evening (20 or 30 Euros depending on your arrival time). This info doesn't seem to appear until you start the booking process, and even then is easy to miss.
Having said that, we were very happy to stay in this well furnished apartment.
Thanks to Bobbie and Michael.
The apartment was very nice. Clean, fresh, well equipped and the bathroom and shower was wonderful. The air condition made the stay in the apartment even more comfortable. The location very suitable as it is near to the old town, the beach and railway station. The service given by the staff was excellent.
We have just returned from having spent a great few days in Nice made all the better by staying in this apartment. Apartment is in a great location, close to all amenities but quiet & peaceful as it is situated at the back of the building with a small balcony overlooking the gardens. The kitchen & living area are open plan with full kitchen facilities available for use if required. The bedroom is bright with french doors on to a smaller balcony and has plenty of space in wardrobes (with full length sliding mirror doors). There was always plenty of hot water available for showers etc. We would have no hesitation in recommending this apartment to family & friends and look forward to staying there again in the future

We enjoyed staying at this apartment in Nice. The apartment faced the back, which was quiet and we would enjoy the late afternoon sunshine on the balcony sipping our wine. The accommodations were comfortable, the kitchen well equipped, nicely decorated and it was nice to have a wash machine in the apartment. The location is convenient to the train station and just a few blocks from the Promenade. A one minute walk would take us to the local bakery for our breakfast pastries. A grocery store was also very close. The details and tips for the unit were well documented in a binder, which was of great help.
