Hotel is well located in heart of Nice. Staff are very welcoming and ambience favors American traveler.Comment of K. Warren , United States the 2016-07-10
"Good location and nice views"
I would say this hotel is good for couples, families or anyone wanting a very very quiet experience in Nice. The bar closes very early and actually feels quite desolate/ unwelcoming so not sure you'd really want to stay there for a beer/ vin blanc anyway. The hotel's facade/ frontage is quite grand and we had a really nice view from our room overlooking the City. The location is great and a comfortable walking distance to the sites, shops and la plage.
"Not a 4 stars"
Great welcoming staff. However the hotel is not at the level you would expect from a four stars hotel. Rooms would definetely need to be refurbished : old looking, old bathroom, way too hot in the room, ....
"Very friendly, helpful staff and excellent location"
Service was warm, friendly, personable and professional. Lovely room looking out over summer patio. All parts of the hotel very clean. Quiet jazz music and cocktails every evening in bar - very relaxing. The location is in a nice residential area and just a few minutes walk from the Airport bus stop; from the lovely Paillon Promenade /park. It is only 3 /4 minutes walk from a great local baker! on Rue du Lycee by the corner with Hotel des Postes. It is also only a few minutes from a vegetarian/vegan/gluten free health food café & shop called Argane Bio (delicious, genuinely homemade food); as well as from the excellent Vegan Gorilla -a real treat. Would definitely stay there again.
Staff are friendly and very helpful. Rooms are neat and tidy, a little dated even with the upgrade provided, but still nice. Central location, walking distance to the centre of town and shopping centre. All in all good experience.
"Enough is enough"
I have stayed here a few times, and whilst aspects of the experience are good, so many are not up to scratch. I stayed in a room that is very very hot, the air con doesn't work (deliberately this time of year) and my parents stayed in another room that was so cold the had to ask for assistance to heat it up! This is not the first stay for either of us... I am shocked that in 2016 I can walk up to the bar at 11.15pm to be told they have closed! Whilst no warning is given that they are closing, or any information in the provided hotel booklet to indicate it's closing.. icing on the cake.. I asked when the bar is open until on NEW YEARS EVE.. and the answer was 11pm. I feel like we slipped back in time to the 1950's (maybe that was the last time some of this hotel was decorated) if you see my previous review of the Ellington I understood it's pitfalls, this time, it's too much. I will NEVER recommend this hotel again.
