"Nice Hotel Good Location Star Basis debateable"
Hotel Ellington is right where you can shop till you drop 10 minute walk, or want to go to beach 15 minute walk 25 if its serious hot and humid. Hotel was clean and fairly well presented reception handled things well and have a fair understanding of english. Rooms well we were in a double classic ie 2 beds pushed together must admit room was odd shaped and small with hardly and space for putting any thing no drawers and one very small wardrobe. bathroom was fine bath with over shower. Tea and Coffee and kettle ( which leaked ) Small fridge and desk top. Would say this room was for weekend stays for clothes space, any longer you need to use suitcase. Bar area available which has a small door to courtyard, as was breaxfast area also small door to courtyard. Problem was pidgeons ! many hang around to feed off visitors leftovers and some try before you start, staff did try and keep them away was a fruitless task to be honest. We never ate outside for that reason. Breaxfast was nice usual mix of meats and cakes yougharts and scambled eggs and bacon or sausages, pancakes tea coffee etc. tables well laid out and staff were intentive to keep room cleaned. Was fairly expensive to buy drinks as a barcardi and coke was £10/ euros found that a little rich. One thing we found most annoying we had a 3 day period where both key cards to room failed 12 times and although staff replinished them was really not good enough as going to room to find cant get in going all way back downstairs to get cards sorted was beyond reason it needed a fix or room change none was offered ' In my opinion this is a 3 star hotel although it is classed as 4 star. Hotel Ellington needs a few tweaks maybe but still ideal place to be based at. Nice is lovely main town not far away, easy to get to trains ( 15 - 20 min walk ) to monaco, cannes. go through the boutique side get a ticket in machine q till number called staff very helpful 35 min trian ride easy and priced reasonable. Weather around 26 - 29c although can be 80 - 90% humid so feels hotter. Euro exchange was £1 = 1.12 at time of travel changed before left uk Taxi from airport to hotel was charged at airport £40 coming back asked hotel was £30 Beach Area Very Stoney cool sea, resturants everywhere and usual tourist trinkets available.
"Excellent value for the cost - exceptional staff"
We booked this hotel on the strength of the reviews and the cost. Good value for money. Our room had a recent upgrade, new bathroom, decorated, comfortable bed but obviously did not upgrade carpets - odd! Rooms are small but functional. Staff service TOP class - they have those silly hairdriers in the bathroom that barely blow air but a call to house keeping delivered a real hair drier - great service. Breakfast inexpensive but not very exciting - coffee terrible, scrambled egg perfect and yes they had some fruit, yogurts etc....Guess it was the disappointing coffee that drove us to cancel breakfast for day 2. Location excellent. I highly recommend this hotel as great value for the cost - think we paid around 100 Euro a night in June.
My husband and I have just stayed at the Hotel Ellington for five nights. It is located in a fantastic area close to everything! It was so easy to walk out of the hotel and be close to cafés, restaurants, shops and the train station. The breakfast was very nice and the staff were very helpful! Every morning I ordered a cafe au lait to the room and it was delivered promptly and with a smile! The room had tea and coffee facilities and also a small bar fridge. My husband and I were very happy with this hotel. Thank you :)
"A Nice Hotel In a résidentiel neighboorhood - 15 minutes walking from the promenade des Anglais and the sera"
Nice Hotel with an excellent breakfast. Nice garden to rest or eat the breakfast. Not very noisy but you could ask for a Room not In front of the street . Scooters are a little noisy but We slept very well. employees are very helpful. WOW!
"An absolute star"
We stayed here for three nights as part of an Easyjet deal. Our entire stay was excellent . The hotel is ideally located in close proximity to the shops, old town and the beach. Nice is an easy town to explore and is very well served by an efficient and cheap public transport system with easy access to Monaco, Cannes etc. The hotel staff were very friendly and welcoming and greeted us with a bonjour and smile at all times. Our room(404)was superb-large,clean and comfortable. Considering the location in the heart of a bustling city noise was never an issue and we had undisturbed sleeps throughout. We love Nice and The Ellington is yet another reason for us wanting to return in the future. Thanks to all.
