                    Very close to Railway Station - essential for our ongoing, early morning journey on departure. Concierge was extremely helpful, especially with advice about local restaurants. He also got information about revised train timetables (there was an SNCF strike), bus timetables and tram routes to enable us to get to our first intermediate destination in Italy. Nice breakfast.

                    Booked.net listed hotel as having airport shuttle. We assumed it was a dedicated shuttle service free of charge. We found out they called a taxi service for 35 euros. People in the room next door brought home a prostitue and were not quiet at all for a rfew hours. We both had rashes on out legs after staying over for one night.

                    Hotel was nice and quiet and clean, very close to the station, had good markets and take aways near by. Room was clean and big enough.

                    Location is little bit far away from sightseeing place, but quite near from station and good access to tram station. Still very easy to get sightseeing place. Staff is acceptable, not so kind but never rude. Hotel and rooms looks luxury.

                    Not enough bath amenities. They didn't give it everyday, no shampoo, only 1 soup and bath jell. Maybe they didn't clean room and bath room everyday.

                    everything is fantastic, the location is great which just 1 min walk from the train station. staff is nice. strongly recommend and i will definitely live there again if i travel to Nice again.

                    the cleaning lady open the door directly while we were still sleeping, and she keep coming to rush us to leave the room so she can start to clean and finish her job earlier. only this small problem, everything else is great.

                    We were close to the train station and downtown. We could walk everywhere.

                    Courteous staff, free access to Internet // Our stay was too short to be able to say more in an objective way

                    Very poor breakfast offering, espe ially eggs (cold) while we were there.Hotel has a shabby look in parts but the renovations have given it an uplifted appearance

                    We thought the staff were helpful and friendly. The location was good very central- right behind the main railway station, which is also where the shuttle bus to the airport was located. It was a couple of streets from the main shopping and access road to the beach.It was about 20 minute walk to the beach. The hotel had potential- some effort had gone into decorating, plants around etc. The twin room was large as was the bathroom and the beds were comfortable.The air con worked well.

                    Having said all that it was really noisy- road noise and constant banging of doors and general thumping to keep us awake. The hotel was tired and shabby in appearance- dirty carpets, mould in bathroom. The breakfast selection was poor. The double room was small and bed hard. The hot water ran out one day. We did not think that it was 3 star.

                    All people working at the reception desk were absolutely kind and helpful, and they smiled a lot. Wifi is free. Location of the hotel is super if you travel a lot, the hotel is very close to the railway station.

                    Street rooms are a little bit noisy, and you may find not very nice people around the railway station.

                    GOod location, friendly staff. Price was good.

                    No free internet. Breakfast at 10 Euros was very expensive, much better deals around the corner.

                    Proximity to the train station is a huge plus; the bus from the airport stops in front of the station as well, so no lugging heavy suitcases for miles in a strange city. It took me less than 5 minutes to get there. The hotel is gorgeous! Traditional furniture sets it off beautifully and there is a lovely shaded courtyard out back where you can chill out reading a book listening to the gentle tinkle of a small fountain. Room and bathroom were a decent size. Bathroom was modern, well equipped and overall I was satisfied with the cleanliness (just ignore the dust bunnies under the bed). Walk to the Promenade des Anglais no more than 10 - 15 minutes depending on how much window shopping you do on the way. And only another 10 - 15 minute walk into Vieux Nice from the promenade. Lots of very affordable little cafes/bistros within 5 minutes walk so no need to feel restricted to the breakfast buffet. Excellent, charming, very helpful staff. Next time I go to Nice I know where I'll be staying!

                    Breakfast buffet was quite limited and I didn't like the coffee out of the machine, so chose to breakfast elsewhere most days. Water in the shower was slightly on the tepid side. Probably great during the summer months, when a hot shower isn't so important.

                    The place near the train station, the design in the hotel, the confort, the price

                    Cleanliness is acceptable if you do not look deep into the room.
