We travelled to Nice for the Monaco Grand Prix. From the airport buy a train ticket for the 98 bus. Cost 6 Euros. Get off at C.Grosso..about 5 or 6 stops from the airport. The bus drops you along the beach front. It is then about 10 min walk from there. Head for the Musee De Beau Arts. Le Villa Cygnes is run by a lovely couple, Remy and Benedict. They are very welcoming and helpful without being intrusive. The hotel is away from the main centre of Nice and is accessed by a long set of deep steps. The area is very quiet and residential. We stayed in room 4. It was painted white, had high celings, simple furnishings and patio doors leading to a small terrace. Everything was very clean, the bed comfortable and there were ample towels , a hairdryer and shower gel provided. There were even 2 pairs of slippers which was a nice touch. There was a large wardrobe which incorporated a safe. This was very useful for our passports/Euros (and Race tickets!). There was also a fridge which was very useful as we bought sandwiched and drinks to take on the train to Monaco with us.(reasonably priced in the local supermarkets) The terrace was a suntrap and even at 5.30 - 6pm (in May) the heat of the sun was still strong. It was lovely to relax there for a while after a hectic day in Monaco. We were up and out too early to sample the breakfast but I understand that this is served in the garden and is 12 Euros pp. We slept well, and peacefully. This is a nice hotel to base yourself in the peace and quiet. It is about 10 min walk to the main area / restaurants and about 20-25 minutes walk from the train station. Tip- Taxis are expensive. Walk or take the bus if you can. A 10 min (max) drive back to Nice airport was E29. However, after 9pm or before 7am it is E10 extra. Our flight was at 7am so we had to leave the hotel at 5.30am = E 39. it is a perfectly nice place to stay.
