    Breakfast was good, location was very comfortable!

  • Older travelers

    The lacation is excellent and staff is very friendly. Rooms are sober but clean. Very nice located hotel and fair price for the Cote d'Azur.

    Parking is € 20,-- per day (valet) and drinks in the bar are extremely expensive. Rooms are smaal and sober but clean.

    Room; large with an attempt of cute decoration but the carpet was old and stained killing the mood of the room. The bathroom is very spacious especially for european standards. Towels are like sand paper, very old, rough. Bed is comfortable. Ac is very inefficient, good thing we weren't there during the hot season. WiFi is only available in the lobby, free for an hour! For the rooms they charge 15euro/day. We got lucky and were provided with a complimentary pass for each day but still it wasn't clear whether the pass was for a day or an hour as it claims on the login tickets. Staff; very limited, although they seem intersted, they always direct you to the places with the hotel has an agreement. Not geniun at all, they seem to ignore the question and alway provide the "approved" answer, they can not give an honest answer, you feel there is a camera watching over them. Overall, I would not stay at this hotel again. Over priced, not enough ammenities to justify almost 200euro price tag and "4" stars! The building is old, spacious and nice but the interior arcitecture, design and decoration killed its charmed and it feels more clostrofobic and stuffy. Nice is a beautiful and very managable city, great food, definetely coming back, but might look into vacation rentals if staying 3+ days.

  • Older travelers

    Liked location - we have stayed here before which is why we went back

    Noticed this time a deterioration in standards - for example coach parties staying for one night were disruptive. Also we chose not to have breakfast as the price was too high

  • Older travelers
    8.8

    We enjoyed the second room we were given which was in the main building facing the boulevard. There was plenty of space to unpack and relax and the bed was comfortable. The front desk staff were polite and they were able to resolve the issue we had with the first room that we had been given. The location of the hotel was accessible to the beach and the old town by walking and took less than 15 minutes. There were many places to eat along the way and there was access to bus and tram lines. The train station was also only about 20 minutes walk.

    We had booked using bookings.com and the room we expected to get in a 4-star hotel was not at all suitable. This was a disappointing start and to the credit of the hotel, they accepted our disappointment and provided us with an agreeable room for the four nights of our stay. We considered eating at the hotel for breakfast which was not included with the stay. The 17 euros for breakfast was costly and we decided to explore the local area instead. I think that a 4-star establishment could offer a light continental breakfast with the room with the option of purchasing extra items if a person wishes to do so.

    Location was good, just 10 minutes walk from train station, beach and center.friendly staff. Clean. Nice loby.

    Very expensive. Old furniture. Old bathrooms. Safty boxes are with keys not digital code and you have to ask the reception to provide a key. Internet was only available for free in the loby ( you have to pay for internet in the room). The internet vauchers provided were only valid for an hour. The breakfast was not included and in is very expensive to have breakfast in the hotel.

  • Group of friends

    Patio area

    Having agreed a price with Booked.net, they added on another £30 or so because the hotel was full. Very disappointing and for that reason would not recommend hotel

  • Older travelers
    7.4

    Great central location and music on the terrace in the evening was a big plus.

    Room furnishings could stand to be updated.

  • Single
    8.2

    Hotel is neat/clean, and front-desk staff are courteous and helpful. The location is quite central, only 10 minutes' walk from the Acropolis (convention center) and Old Town area. The bar/lounge is great, together with the jazz-era theme.

    Whereas the main areas of the hotel are nicely decorated with excellent jazz-era themes, photos, etc., the room I had was really gray & bland....not a single artwork on the walls; very "clinical." Also, the breakfast area is very small for the volume of people using it, and the hot food wasn't very good.

  • Couple
    5.8

    Very clean hotel, very well located right in the heart of Nice. Friendly and helpful reception staff.

    We suffered from cold. We stayed 5 nights, 1st night we froze with 3 blankets on us, the heating system doesn't exist. Every morning between 8 to 9 the ladies which did the cleaning entered the room without knocking, afterwards we found out that it was our fault because we didn't put the "do not distrurb sign" at the door. Poor wi-fi, do not believe what is written on the hotel presentation, the wi- fi functions slowly, we have to get every hour access codes, and fucntions only in the lobby. Room very small, the real room has nothing to do with the photos from the website. The real rooms are small, dark, without space. Too expensive for what it offers. Not a real 4**** hotel.
