“Nice, cheap hotel”
Reviewed 28 May 2013

Very good location and great budget hotel. You can everywhere go by foot, becouse all "must see" objects locate very close. Clean, but small rooms. I suggest stay there if in your plans are only sleep over. Very frendly staff.

We stayed here for 3 nights in May 2013. Well the price we were paying it was just perfect - clean rooms, linens and bathroom. Location is just great as beach, bus station and market are just around the corner - 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!

The owner of this place looked a bit strict, but did let us in his kitchen use utensils, warm up food and served us a nice breakfast.

We would consider staying there again if we were on a similar budget!

It's very cheap, located in the centre, only a few minutes far from the beach. Clean rooms, nice shared restrooms, wonderful breakfast in a lovely dining room. Definitely will stay there when going back to Nice.

The hotel is old and within easy reach of bars restaurants. The train stations (Grand Ville and Riquier) are walkable, and the beach is a 10 minute walk away. Everywhere we went, we walked, therefore saving money on cabs. Add into the mix the price of this hotel and you actually have an inexpensive weekend on the French south coast.
But bear in mind the price. If you are on a budget and are happy to settle for a basic room with limited amenities, the stop looking and book this place. If you are after luxury with room service, tea and coffee making facilities, then look elsewhere. I have to say that the dining room was pretty unique - it was like sitting in an old eccentric aunt's house. Glorious!
Like most things in life, you get what you pay for. And it is for that reason only that I have given the hotel 4 stars. I had requested a room with a balcony, but didn't get one. Had this been a 4 or 5 star hotel, I would have made an issue of it.
The hotel is adequate, but based on what you pay it is actually pretty good value!

Room Tip: We were woken up in the early hours by a crowd of drunk guys. So ask for a room around the back!

This hotel is a decent choice for those on a budget. The location is pretty good and staff friendly. The hotel is a bit older and this should only be considered for those who want to visit Nice on the cheap. We had a pleasant stay with no problems.

We stayed at Hotel Wilson for a week and were very happy with what we got for the reasonable price. Small but comfortable & clean room. Close to bus station and the old town!

Reviewed 20 June 2012

When we unpacked our bags after arriving here we discovered that a bottle of Baileys had split in my backpackers bag. All my clothes were covered in Baileys. We explained the situation and asked if we could throw a load of washing in their machines, and would pay a rent for it. "Washing machines for house washing only." Unbelievable. They were so rude and we had to hand wash everything in our tiny little basin. Yes it's cheap, yes its common room is beautiful, but the owners were totally unsympathetic and downright mean. It was close to everything, but very hard to find (all French buildings look the same), so write down the address. Using a shared toilet wasn't a trouble, because they were clean, although the room wasn't very clean. WOULDN'T RECOMMEND!

Room Tip: Save money by opting for no toilet - the shared one is very clean.
