We stayed for 4 nights in July 2012 and can fully recommend the hotel.
The location is on a quiet private road. At the end of the road, you have the Musee des Beaux-Arts which offers free entry to both museum and gardens. Five minutes away, you are on the Rue de France and have the Grosso bus stop (direct connections to airport and elsewhere for one Euro) and handy shops including Spar. A few minutes on and you can be either on the Promenade des Anglais and the beach or, heading east up the Rue de France, in an area with a good choice of reasonably priced restaurants and bars as well as further shops.
The hotel is run by Benedicte and Remy who are both charming, welcoming and kind. Benedicte speaks very clear French and Remy is always happy to speak in English (and probably other languages...). Our room, #4, was quiet, spacious, characterful and immaculate; it remained cool despite the heat outside (including the private balcony). We slept very well in the comfortable bed. The room safe and wireless internet were both free and there was a handy fridge.
We had not intended to take breakfast but tried it on the first day (at 12 Euro each) and decided to have it every day after that. As well as typical bakery selection etc, there was always a freshly made fruit salad and a cooked specialite du maison all served in the garden by our hosts through whose kitchen we walked to get there. When we told Remy one morning that we were heading for the beach, he offered to lend us a beach umbrella / parasol (a choice were left outside our room).
All in all, a lovely stay; perhaps not the cheapest place but probably very competitive for Nice.
