"Great location and some info about getting about in Nice"
the hotel is worth more than the 2* rating. the reception staff were friendly and helpful and spoke good english, the room was perfect for the short stay (3 nights)we were there. The kitchenette included microwave with grill, sink and 2 hobs with a selection of pans to use. The room was very clean and the beds were comfortable and we have a balcony too. The pool on the roof isnt massive but is good enough if you want to do lengths or sit and sunbathe in the sunshine. There is a tram stop less than 5 mins walk away, the main bus station is about 10 mins walk away )the actual bus station has been demolished recently but there is an area near the park where all the buses stop at - JC Bermond). Messina square and seafront is about 15 mins away walking or about 5 on the tram. The bus to monaco was eur 1 each way and took about 45mins, to cannes its also eur 1, but takes 2.5hrs so better to get the train which is dearer at eur 6 each way but only takes 30 mins. villefranche (nice little town with beach) is about 15 mins on the bus too and the airport is about 40 mins on the 98 bus (goes 3 times an hour during the day) and this costs eur 4 but u do get a day ticket which can be used on the local buses and tram system all day (u can get all round Nice and to villefrance with this ticket). There is also a large Carrefour supermarket about 10 mins walk away from the apartment block and 2 smaller 'corner shops' too. definitely will return to stay here next time we are in Nice.

We stayed on a leisure break from Sunday to Friday. On arrival we were early so the hotel did not have a room available for us, but they kept our luggagae safe for us until they were able to check us in. We headed for the rooftop pool, the Sunbeds are of the fine mesh variety which is great as it drains easily when you get out of the pool. The towels are a little on the small side, but are adequate and at least you don't have to pay for them. We ate at the Restaurant on the roof and all our lunches were excellent. great quality and reasonably priced for a Hotel. During our stay the weather was a little cool on a couple of days, so we made use of the Sauna. As we used it during the day we were the only occupants, which was lovely. Despite the Sauna being switched off when we went in, it warmed up very quickly and was at working temperature in minutes. There is nowhere to lock anything securely in the changing area, so a good tip is to get changed into a swimming costume in your room and cover yourself up with a towel to head for the Sauna. There are no additional towels available in the Sauna.
The reception staff were extremely helpful and did everything they could to make us feel welcome.
"Excellent hotel for the price. Rooms small but ok."
Excellent hotel for the price. Rooms small but ok. The only drawback is the traffic noise in the day, but not too bad at night. One word of warning - if you ask the hotel to phone you a taxi make sure you get a price. Taxi to hotel from outside the airport in Nice was 28 euros. One to the airport charged us 49 euros. Not sure if this is correct but when we questioned it he reduced it to 45!

Friendly and informative staff, a modern, clean, light and airy room, ideally situated for exploring Nice, but don't stay here if you want to sleep! Lots of bars nearby, then the street cleaner jet washing the pavement, then the busses that stop right outside your window (although very handy for the return trip to the airport!) leads to a disturbed night. We had a very strong smell of drains in the room for both nights we stayed - staff suggested it was coming from the restaurant downstairs! I wouldn't recommend it based purely on the level of noise, but others might not find this such a problem.
