Great location, Reasonable for the price

Small hotel, well-located on the Avenue Jean Medecin within easy walking distance of the railway station and close to the station tram stop. Tram runs past the door of the hotel. If you're coming by taxi please note that, because of the tramway, Avenue Jean Medecin is not open to traffic - however if the taxi driver drops you in one of the mainy cross-streets ( e.g. the Rue D'Alsace-Lorraine ) you'll only have to wak a few yards to the hotel door.

We got a pleasant second-floor room at the back of the hotel (so no noise) with a huge and comfortable bed and a modern bathroom which boasted a bath as well as a shower. The toilet was separate from the bathroom, so no need to coordinate visits ! There was adequate space to hang clothes for our three-night stay, with shelves above for underwear etc. Standard hotel LCD freeview-type TV. The only minor quibble was that, like many hotels of less than five-star status, there are no comfortable chairs in the room - just a single transparent plastic chair like I see in my dentist's waiting room - so we had to use the bed instead. I woudn't normally comment on this as it is so common, however this particular hotel has no lounge or bar so if you needed to sit properly (for example because of a back condition) I'm not sure what you'd do !

The room was spotlessly clean and the housekeeping was very efficient - they even changed the towels every day despite there being no need to do so.

We ate the hotel breakfast on the first morning, however this was frankly poor value for 13 euros so I wouldn't bother unless you prefer the convenience of eating in. There are plenty of cafes in the surrounding streets which will serve you a perfectly acceptable breakfast much more cheaply. There are also many restaurants serving all kinds of cuisine, so getting an evening meal was never an issue and didn't break the bank - the more expensive and upmarket places are nearer the sea front. A few words of basic French are useful - and polite when you are in France - but the places we ate in always seemed to have someone who spoke English as well so there were no misunderstandings.

If you wish to visit the Vielle Ville, as most visitors to Nice are going to do, then it's three or four stops away on the tram - flat fare of 1.5 euros when we were there. If you're staying for a few days then Cannes, Antibes and Monaco are only a few stops away on the train - we took a day trip to Monaco, the return fare came to about 16 euros in total for the two of us. The SNCF ticket machines (which you have to use if you don't want to to faff about in the SNCF office) offer a choice of several languages, so no problem there.

A word of warning - if you do decide to visit Monaco by train, don't go at 10:30 on a Friday morning like we did unless you particularly want to join in an exercise of how to cram 500 people into an already well-populated double-decker train. We didn't see it, but I gather there is a Friday market in Monaco which is particularly popular. To be fair though there had been a railway strike the previous day, so maybe a lot of people had held their travel plans over from the Thursday !

Perfect base to explore French Riviera

Perfect localization: in the city center, near Notre-Dame de Nice basilica, 10 min walk from Promenade des Anglais and 5 min walk from the train station (trains to: Monaco, Meton, Cannes etc.). Friendly and helpful service. Perfectly clean, quiet and comfortable room with free and fast Wifi.

Good price and quality

Marita A on 31/10/2017 11:56

Perfect location along the main street. Friendly and helpful staff. Spacious and clean room. Terrace good extra. Value of money. Walking distance from the beach. If you want to visit Monaco, go by public bus. It costs only 1.50. Recommend.

Fantastic Breakfast and Convenient Location

Evelyn C on 24/10/2017 17:02

Our three day stay at this hotel was very enjoyable. It is located in a vibrant area with shops, restaurants, and public transportation nearby. Old Town and Blvd des Anglais are a 10-15 minute walk away. The breakfast included croissants, eggs, fruit, assorted coffee drinks, and cheeses. The breakfast room was very inviting. Our room was small but adequate and had a balcony to let in fresh air. The room did not have a way to control air temperature,but we were comfortable. The hotel has a tiny lobby, a small elevator, and CNN in English. The staff were friendly and helpful and spoke adequate English Amadera was especially nice. We would stay here again for the price, location, and amenities.

Amazing Hotel in Central Nice

MarkCarrick on 16/10/2017 19:20

This hotel ensured that this has been one of my favourite ever holidays. It is located centrally on Avenue Jean Medecin and is near Gare Thiers which is the main Nice train Station. The only traffic on Jean Medecin is trams and therefore there was very little traffic noise even though our room overlooked the street.

We arrived around 10am and were greeted by a very helpful gentleman on reception who told us our room was ready. Our room was on the second floor and there is a lift and lovely marble staircase. The bedroom was spotlessly clean and tastefully decorated, the d├ęcor was reasonably new. There was a working safe in the room and a fridge which was stocked with soft drinks and chocolate (there was a charge per item). The bathroom was immaculate and there was a separate toilet.

One of the reasons we chose this hotel was the quality of the breakfast and this did not disappoint, sausages, scrambled egg, cereals, pain au chocolat, croissants, yoghurts, breads, madeleines, fruit, fruit juices and hot drinks were all available. We were able to sit on the terrace whilst having breakfast. The lady in the breakfast room was lovely.

There was no noise coming from neighbouring rooms which made the stay all the more comfortable.

What made the hotel special was the friendliness and helpfulness of the staff especially those on reception who helped with enthusiasm especially with all of our enquiries regarding buses and trains.

We look forward to coming back again and staying in this wonderful hotel.
