"Location and Staff great..."
We booked Executive room for 3 nights in late Sept, 2016. Desk Staff very helpful on arrival. Our room was small and the bathroom definitely only a one person area. Disappointing for an executive room. Bed comfortable and room clean. However, the breakfast was excellent, wide variety of well prepared food, in a very pleasant area. The Bar offered a long Happy Hour, 5-7pm, where we thoroughly enjoyed being served by Jessica and meeting other guests. Hotel easy walking distance to Tram, Shopping, Promenade. Hotel décor certainly not modern, but location very good.
"Disappointing Wifi and Dark Hallways"
This hotel has a good location as it is walking distance to the water and is also close to the main street with shops and transportation. Lots of restaurants nearby. The drawback is the wifi does not work in the room at all. It only works in the lobby and public spaces. Breakfast is decent. The hallway lights were dim and in some areas not working and only light up when the system senses a moving object. Too dark. Front desk staff was friendly and helpful. Entry into the hotel lobby involved a flight of stairs making it hard if you have heavy luggage to carry.
"Lovely weekend "
We stayed in a Deluxe room and it was as expected, decent sized and everything we needed. The decor was a bit dated, but otherwise ok. The staff were really friendly and helpful and certainly made us feel welcome and comfortable. Also a great location!
Stayed for a bit less than a week in April. Nice is a lovely city, and this hotel is nestled within walking distance of pretty much everything in it. Close to the train station, a short walk from the beach, very close to the centre etc. However, the hotel itself - despite being billed as four star - really didn't feel as such. Our room was very tired, painted in drab colours, and facing a very busy street. The air conditioner was quite noisy, when it worked. Facing out of the front of the building, one floor above a busy road, it wasn't the most restful of hotels I've stayed in. And while the hotel has no control over this, our floor was filled with very noisy, drunken British tourists - a stag do, or lads holiday perhaps. That being said, the cocktails at the bar are superb and the staff very helpful and friendly. Recommended for a short break only, and don't expect four star accommodation.
"Our tour stay"
Our room came with a balcony so we were able to enjoy the crisp air while sipping coffee or wine in the early evening. The staff attended to our requests in a timely manner. Be sure that you bring a converter for Southern France. The prongs need to be thin. The hotel bar had happy hour every night from 5-7 in which all drinks(alcohol and wine) were half price. The one outstanding thing that THE ELLINGTON offered was their amazing breakfast! The coffee machine could make you any thing that suited your taste. The pastries were out of this world. The setup was a long table in which you could choose scrambled eggs bacon or sausage, potatoes,fruits, cereal, orange juice, water, ham, cheese, and pancakes. There was a toaster and there was the most delicious fog preserves! I believe the other spreadable preserves were strawberry, and orange marmalade.The breakfast was included in your hotel bill. The hotel was very clean . When you come, understand that European hotel rooms are smaller than the rooms in the USA. We had no issues with the hotel. The old town was just walking distance.
