“One Star Is way too much for this dump”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 April 2011

There is no hot water in the showers.

the staff of the hotel makes noise all night long at the reception ( once we were kept awake until 5 in the morning by screams and shouts they were probably drunk )

The hotel is very dirty i don't even think they clean the toilets. They actually came in to fix a new tv in our room they did not even bother to move our stuff they drilled holes in the wall with all the dust covering all our stuff, after they were done with the works no one bothered to come in to clean we had all the room full of dust. Worst 7 days ever spent in a hotel.

P.s. parking is just 4 places for all the hotel good luck.

AVOID AVOID AVOID i am sure that there are better places for the same price. One star is way too far for this dump.

This place was just terrible! I knew that this is 1* hotel and was preparing myself for the worst (ofcourse hoping that this will not be as worse).
We had the cheapest room with WC and shower in the corridor (as prices for other type of rooms looked exagerated from the beginning).
When arrived reception was ok, just paid all sum on arrival and hoped that will not need to communicated anymore, though in general they seemd to be nice people there.
In the room - metalic window blinds was not possible to open as they were broken (though we managed to lift it some cm from the floor and fix with garbage bin), towels were with holes (actually we 2 people had to share 1 small towel and 1 bigger towel), there was no soap, no shampoo. In the communal shower there was no place to hang your clothes so I went to shower without clothes from my room in order not to make them wet or dirty.
On the wall of the room hang poster with list of restrictions, which I have never seen in the other hotels (e.g. restrictions regarding food, electic appliances etc.).
Bed for 2 people seemed narrow and we had 1 blanket for 2.
Only good thing proximity to central station!
All in all terrible expierence, I think it is better to pay a bit more and get better hotel or just stay on the beach for free and enjoy Nice not this terrible rat hole!

Picked this hotel because it is close to the train station.

The girl who checked us in was friendly. However the guy on duty in the evening and midnight was not friendly and not helpful at all. It looks like that is only his partime job at night. We saw him in proper office attire and leave the hotel around 8am with a black BMW. He was hardly found at the reception area, need to make a lot of noise to get his attention before we can get our room key. We asked for hot drinking water and he said it costs EUR0.50 for a glass. I will expect hotel to provide hot and cold drinking water. In fact, most of the hotel staff (from the same hotel) provide us with hot and cold drink water free of charge.

Room is small and not clean. Found yellow stain on bed sheet and towel. With the rate we were paying (EUR43), we don't expect air-conditioning in the room but was very disappointed when we found that there wasn't any electrical fan in the room. It's hot in the room especially in the late morning and afternoon. Noise from the road was terrible. We were waken up by the trash track around 4am/ 5am.

Security is a concern, not a pleasant place for single female.

This hotel is located in very bad area. Close to train station, for whatever is that good. People on the street reflect area. Didn't feel safe any time. Only security is the receptionist, that is sometimes there sometimes not. Other than that, just anybody can walk in. Doors have only very basic lock.

Hotel is run down big time. The room was discusting. Sheets were dirty. Found pubic hair. Bed covers were at least 10 years old. Dirty and smelly.

On positive side, personel was helpful and positive. However, we didn't ask much either. It was short stay, booked based on recommnedations from this website. We regret going to that hotel.

I recommend this hotel onlyo for travelers on very, very low budget (what are you doing in Nice anyway?)

we paid about 75 EUR per nite for a quad room. With 4 beds, there was barely enough room to put luggage for 4 people or to walk around which was fine for the price we paid but bathroom did not look clean. They didnt clean the rooms for the entire 3 days. When we complained about it the guy said its not his problem and to talk to the receptionist in the morning. When we asked for a clean towel, he said they didnt have any. The lady who checked us in was very friendly but this guy we dealt with for the remainder of the say was an a$$.
We picked this place because of the good reviews on this site and considered the low price to be a bonus but would have been happy to pay more for a place with better service.
The reception and stairway smelled of curry when we came back each evening. it wasnt a bad smell but could smell grease in the air.
