“Value for money”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 June 2011

We stayed in this hotel for 2 nights. Mr Martinez was very nice and friendly. Apparently, he spent a lot of time in decorating this hotel. The best part is that our room has a small balcony.
It is reasonably clean and i think it is good for is value.
Of course, need to overcome the stairs.

We stayed here for 5 nights in May 2010. We knew it wasn't going to be the nicest hotel, based on how much we were paying and other comments, but we went for it anyways. All in all, it was a decent place to stay and I think the value was there. The location, we thought was fairly good - as we never were walking too far to get anywhere we wanted to go. We paid for a private bathroom, which we got - it was tiny - but it did the job, but did have the smallest shower I've ever seen! We loved the breakfast room and the tortoises in there. The bed was not the most comfortable that I've slept on, but again, given the price, wasn't about to complain too much! We would consider staying there again if we were on a similar budget!

I stayed in the four bedded room facing the back which was very quiet.
The Hotel is in a good location, a quiet area, good value for money, very clean, spacious room and bathroom.
The owner was very friendly and helpful.

The only problem is it's on the 4th floor of a building and a long, tiring climb especially during check in and check out when u have all your luggage to carry up and down !!!
Only wished they had a lift.
Otherwise a good and comfortable stay . Could not find any other fault with it !

We were at Hotel Wilson in a heat wave last year and missed air conditionning very badly. This being said, the hotel in itself is very well situated, plus the owner is kind provides an excellent French-style breakfast.

There's kind of a "hostel feel" in this hotel, not in a bad way, but in a familiar way. Owner appears to live on premices, you can grab books or comics on your way to your room. Windows are huge, no balconies, but they overlook a little piazza with singing birds (occasionally children playing) which makes the experience really typical.

If you don't mind the stairs on the way up, and no air conditionning, this is an excellent place to make your general quarters to visit the amazing city of Nice. From there everything is reachable on foot. Parking can be an issue if you have a car with you though.

Great place.

I cannot recommend this hotel at all, I left the place immediatly after two hours because I found several bed bugs. Even the rooms look nice, be aware of this fact.
The long corridor was dark in the night, it was difficult to find the light, I did not feel comfortable at all. My bathroom was very small and basic, the towels did not give me a good impression.

Once we got over the initial shock of the hotel being on the 3rd floor (carrying the bags up was not pleasant), we settled in well and had a most enjoyable stay at the hotel. The location is great, close to the beach, and the old town. Everything in easy walking distance. The new tram system is great, especially at E1 a trip.

2 nights in September 2010

Pros
Location – 20-25min walk from the train station, straight down the main street. You can take tram down mainstreet but very packed also. Very close to the old town – where the majority of great restaurants and the market is.
Great value for money 55EURO/night for room with ensuite bathroom, less for shared bathrooms.
Large room, nice homely feel.

Cons
No elevator – on the third floor (quite a trek with large suitcases). - We knew this beforehand from Lonely Planet
No airconditioning
Wifi signal strength was bad – it was unsecured so they turned the signal down really low. We could only get constant signal if we sat next to the door.

Overall, a no frills accommodation. It does the job. Excellent value for money. Close to the old town! Acchiardo restaurant serves great simple tasty food! We did a day trip to Monaco from this base very convinent
