This is an interesting hotel - not the usual chain type. The room which we had was very pleasant with a good sized bedroom. We ate in the restaurant where the food was very good & reasonably priced. The hotel is very centrally located for the old town and port.
PROS: We stayed here for just a couple nights but it was wonderful. First, the VIEW (and the balcony!) from all of the rooms is AMAZING. It's absolutely worth it for that view alone. Not to mention the rooms were very clean and well-kept. I didn't mind the antique-looking furniture as it was in great condition and gave Nice that "Old Town" feel it's supposed to have. The bed was incredibly comfortable and the bathroom was extremely MODERN, spacious, and clean! The housekeeping staff did an amazing and honest job with making up the rooms each day, I was particularly impressed with them. The staff of the entire hotel was really friendly, nice, and helpful. They gave us a lot of good information and answered all of our questions. We felt very safe in the location of the hotel and it is an easy walk to almost everything! It's also a block from the beach! You can't get better than that!!!
CONS: The elevator is teeny-tiny and old, although it operates fine. If you are claustrophobic be prepared to take the stairs and if you have a lot of luggage be prepared to make several trips. The food inside the hotel (for the breakfast, etc.) is not very good quality or taste and way over-priced at $18 per person for breakfast... so just don't eat at the hotel!
Overall, would HIGHLY recommend to anyone staying in Nice. Very impressed and satisfied with our stay!!!

One draw back was when we arrived were supposed to contact a number and when I did this the person spoke in French which I could not understand. Found a gentleman who lived in the building and he told us we had to contact the hotel on 1st floor. This was not made at all clear needs rectifying. Another point to note is that these units are located on the second floor and there is no lift although the lady was very obliging in carrying my case downstairs. Very nicely decorated and modern. Would recommend.
"Hotel in an excellent location for exploring Nice"
An excellent location, close to the old town and its restaurants. The hotel is on the first floor. The staff were friendly. Our room and bathroom were very compact and sparsely furnished, and there were no tea/coffee making facilities. It looked onto a scruffy service area, which was noisy through the night. However, it was very clean and we were given fresh sheets and towels every day. If we had paid a little more, we could have had a larger comfort room overlooking the square.
One of the most charming parts of the city, the Vieux Nice, or Old Nice, is a maze of narrow cobblestone streets dotted with lovely cafés, restaurants, and small shops. The Cours Saleya flower market is an explosion of colors and little treasures, and gems like the baroque Palais Lascaris and the Place Rossetti square with its majestic Cathedrale de Sainte Reparate are not to be missed.
